Pre Production D865GBF: BIOS locked?

Pre Production D865GBF: BIOS locked?

Post by piar » Tue, 18 Nov 2003 16:40:01


I have such a MoBo, it works great with a P4 2.8.

There is only a problem, I cannot have the BIOS flashed, either by the
Express Utility (I have a System Error message )or by the
old-fashioned DOS procedure (it starts fine, gives final confirmation,
but does nothing).

Tried both the P10 and the P11, same results.

The original BIOS is named: BFS86510A.86A.0012.B03 0302041005

Maybe I should use the P06-0033 BIOS to enable Express 2.0 support or
the chipset is "locked" for good?

By the way, that release is not more available on the Intel site,
where could I find it?

Cheers

1. Bios Lock (System Lock Pre-installation)

2. Exch Pre-production NICs differs from Production servers

I have a pair of clustered Exch2003 where I plan to test patches, Service
packs, anti-software updates ,etc.

Those pre-production servers will have different NIC adapters than the
Production servers. That's because I have fiber connection available to the
Production servers, but I will have to use copper cables to the
pre-production ones.

An alternative would leaving both Production and Pre-production clusters
setup without 'NIC teaming'. In that case, they would have same NIC
configuration (one fiber NIC and one Copper NIC each server), but no
teaming.

Please let me know which of the two options would be a better approach.
