Default Abit KX7 boot up -- Award Boot Block BIOS

Just installed the Abit KX7 I bought from Jakkerd, upon booting I receive this nice little message

"Award Boot block BIOS"

it then suggests to insert a diskette with a biosflash. Downloaded all versions from Abit.com.tw .. tried to flash.. Awflash.exe gives error "Unknown flash" ; and just sits there

unable to flash the board, unable to boot the board.

crap

you've got plenty of mainboards around. hotswap the BIOS chip of the mainboard and flash it on another mainboard.

OR: get the BIOS from a dead mainboard (most BIOS chips are the same), hotswap the chip of the KX7 and flash the new BIOS to the chip of the dead board

it's really doable.

, rip the bios chip out first.

Abit KX7 uses other bioschip then NF7
