Bios Flash - PT880 Neo N1996 MS - 7008 Ver: 1
« on: 03-April-05, 23:19:49 »

I ran a driver update from the MSI Live Monitor (TSR) on my computer.  I created the Bios update floppy and rebooted.  In the DOS mode, I am about to run the flash program but I am reminded to "Please disable the item 'Bios Protection' in Bios set-up".  I reviewed my quick user's guide (Bios section) and couldn't find an item BIOS PROTECTION listed.

Can I safely conclude that bios protection (run/disable) is not a function in my particular bios set-up and that it's SAFE to run the flash program?

Thanks so much!

Hi,

Just to be sure..........

a floppy disk with a bios for your mainboard (MSI retail NOT MSI oem)

You need to have floppy in drive and press **** key (marked OUT) to restore to safe working bios

On page 3-10 there is a reference to "BIOS password protection".  Is this the 'Bios protection' that is being refered to in the preflash warning, "PLEASE DISABLE THE BIOS PROTECTION IN BIOS SETUP" ???

Thank anyone!

Hi,

BIOS restore from FLOPPY will over write ALL (http://www.msi.com.tw/program/support/bios/bos/spt_bos_list.php?kind=1)

Bios update via FLOPPY will need protection disabled

No bios protection is to prevent bios being overwritten or attacked.
