Default Help BIOS flashing.

So my mobo is a p4sd-la.

It's an ASUS oem board for hp. I read on the internet that I could flash BIOS for an ASUS P4G 800-V and it would work.

When I am booted in dos and execute the exe I get

Error: ROM file ROMID is not compatible with existing BIOS ROMID

Is there a way to bypass this, and is it safe? I'm about to build a new comp so if it crashes and burns then I'm okay.

Can I get some opinions on if I should try to bypass this or not?

Thanks

/n overwrites?

So like

exe /n?

Im scared to do this...

Not so sure. They are probably trying to flash the BIOS for their board. Im trying to flash another boards BIOS onto mine in hopes that it is the same.

That and they probably have retail versions not oem models, but I'm not sure. I might just override that error and if it kills it oh well.

Why are you trying to flash the BIOS to a different version?

Have a read through this thread, 6th post down: A7V Troubleshooting Board ASUS P4SD-LA
