  1. hello
    i have a asus et1602
    it has a bios boot block on it
    it does not have a floppy, cd , or dvd rive
    only usbs
    i have tried a external usb dvd r/w to install xp back on itand it hangs up when it says starting windows
    win7 gives me a blue screen and a string of error codes
    blocks uniflash in bios
    removed cmos battery and it did not help
    forgive me but i knowi will say this wrong
    but it install ubito? just fine
    ive tried several online sugestions on flashing it from a thumb drive
    im either doing it wrong or its acting the same way as dvd r/w
    it just blinks forever with no action
    ive ran into some tuff ones butthis takes the cakebios says there is no password but reset it anyway
    so, ive reached the point of desperaty and thought maybe i would short the pins on the bios chip
    i have had to do that before
    i cant figure out wich is the bios chip
    its not obviouse to the eye and i think ive searched almost every chip on the board
    it hasa atom cpu
    motherboard number isem16-dhs rev.1.036
    this is crazy hard
    ive googled my brains out
    can anyone help me please
    thanks as usual
