I know this is wrong and can damage the host computer, however it has worked when similar boards that needed the BIOS reflashed have been unable to post.
* Desolder the BIOS chip from the IA-1
* Replace with a ZIF socket
* Turn on a spare motherboard/computer
* Carefully remove the BIOS chip from the spare PC while it is on and at a DOS prompt
* Insert the IA-1 BIOS into the spare PC while it is still on
* Read or Flash the BIOS
* Reinstall the BIOS chips into the proper computers, while they are off
So... how close a match do the chips have to be in order for a motherboard to support the chip used with the IA-1? Is there a generic freeware flash utility which will support the widest variety of motherboards and chips, or will the specific flash utility for the host motherboard suffice? I believe some of them store a CRC inside the BIN file, if others don't the wrong data may be written.
