Question on D865GLC motherboard.

Can a former Gateway bios BF 86510A.15A.0043.P07.0308011434 be reflashed to a BF86510A.86A.0077.P25.0508040031 standard intel bios? The Intel flash software is looking for the second number group to be 86A, when it sees a 15A here,

it doesn't match what it wants and won't flash it. The board is an intel board, I think it was in a gateway computer and

they used their own bios. I'd like to turn it back into a standard intel bios. Any way to do this ?

I am sorry to have to tell you that the the BIOS update software will not install a standard BIOS over an OEM Custom BIOS. You can only install updates to this OEM Custom BIOS provided by the OEM (in this case Gateway). If you are running on the latest update that they have made available, that's the best you are going to get.
