I flashed my P35 platinum to 1.2 using Live Update this weekend. All seemed to go well. A dos box opened and it started flashing. It seemed succesfull, no messages. Then windows was shut down and restarted. I got an error
Something like "bad checksum". What
I used the tool supplied by MSI and did everything by the book. How can this be? Anyway, my PC was able to resume booting and windows XP started up normally. Hmmm.
I rebooted my PC again to see what would happen. Well, all went fine! A nice screen with a spaceship appeared. No more bad checksum message. My PC booted just fine. I checked my BIOS version and it was 1.2 alright.
So, it seems the flash was succesful after all, despite the initial bad checksum error. I have rebooted many times, but never got that error again. Anybody else witness this???
P.S. I now know that I should not use Live Update; should have checked here first before jumping in and trusting MSI to supply me with a decent tool. Silly me
