Hi everyone I have a MSI k8t800 pro motherboard purchased years ago from newegg.com here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813130469

This is the mobo from MSI site: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc...1&cat3_no=6

I did everything according to instruction. I can not flash with floppy, CD or USB I have tried it all. (For sure I made errors on the making a bootable CD so I won't count that). USB does not boot, just a plain cursor shows up blinking, nothing happening, tried multiple usb drives so I tried the floppy route.

I did everything to instruction, I even tried a different dos bootable program from bootdisk. I typed in the command

"ADSFI715 a6702vms.940" at the "A:" prompt. It doesn't flash the bios but only starts up the AMI flash utility and gives a screen full of commands. The bios should've flashed at this point but it didn't.

I am trying to flash so I can get dual-core support. Thanks people. I have been trying this for more than a year now, but nothing is changing. I even changed my motherboard settings to make things as stable as possible, and left one RAM stick in.

You are either doing something wrong or the BIOS you're trying to use are not right for the motherboard.

Yes, I know the link you provided shows what appears to be the right model but sometimes the version number is different.

I would have replaced the motherboard by now !
