|I recently picked up an IA-1 on eBay.. it came with a USB CF reader and a 64Mb card programmed w/ Linux and Dolly, etc. It boots fine from the CF socket in the side of the IA-1 (in Windows), but it seems the guy I bought it from never backed up the original MSN BIOS to the CF. If I switch the boot device to the internal "drive" (Sandisk) it tries to load drives and errors out, so I think he trashed the BIOS. |
I want to return this unit to its' original BIOS as shipped(yes, I know, that's sick and wrong, but my wife wants it to replace her existing IA-2 on MSN and she has an account). I assume this would involve writing a new image to a CF card, then transferring it to flash the BIOS in the unit. Once I get to that point I can get into the modem setup (the old Control-U trick) and download the latest MSN Companion stuff.
If it helps the model number is 178358-001.
Thanks in advance for any help...
