Got a Slix (basicly a Shuttle XPC FS51 until Creative got hold of it, Fu**ed it up and then slaped thier name on it So anyway, used to run a P4 2.4Ghz (533MHz Version) and it rocked (with enough help from my ATI Radeon 9700 Pro) - I was getting like 4800 - 4900 3DMARK03 Marks (Now known as "FUTUREMARK").. put the new P4 3.06Ghz cpu in thier and she don't wanna know!! Not even worth benchin! SiSoft Sandra 2003 recons i might as well have a one Gig CPU in there!! I guessed the Shuttle barebones didn't support the new CPU so i downloaded a BIOS update from the SiS website... It comes in an .exe format which was weired coz i am more familiar with the old Award .bin process (having always had Abit high-end Boards).. I guess i just need to boot into DOS mode and execute the file and it will do the rest.. Problem is, i can't boot into dos as i don't have a floppy drive and I am running NTFS partition so can't use the Win98 Boot disk.. I made a bootable CDROM in NERO and popped on the BIOS update file.. When i get to DOS, i dont have a C: coz i'm Running NTFS format so the hard drive isnt detected, so i don't have anything for it to write to.. i have put a copy of the BIOS update file on my C: so if i could ever get to see the Hard Drive on C: in DOS mode i could simply execute it... any of you guys got any ideas of how to get around it? Cheers Andy BTW - LAN Gaming Sesh at the weekend so a quick fix would rock!
