ok, I got this board and 3820 and yes, they still sell it with out BIOS !! Intel you should recall those,
anyway now, too late, I took the setup overseas and have no access to supported CPU
I need a BIN format for new DX79SI bios file in order to program the chip directly, I have the tools and knowledge to do so,
but the downloadable intel format is .BIO
any ideas ?
I searched for a BIOS extractor tool but couldn't find any. Was able to extract in *.bio format. If you know of any tool, just tell me & I would happily extract the file & send it to you.
Or if you have another idea, I'm open to it.
I am afraid the only way is to remove the chip and read it using external programmer
which need some advanced tools, I do have them but I don't think you do
INTEL REALLY SUCKS, last time to buy intel MB
I found the tool to dump the bios
