COMMON ISSUES

BIOS TYPE WARNING

You are trying to flash with a BIOS that is intended for the other Motherboard. Make sure You have the right one. During boot You can see what BIOS type it is, "A7V" or "A7V133". The "A7V" is for VIA Chipset 8363 NON A and the "A7V133" is for 8363A, A!
NOTE! The differencies between Chipsets are small enough to actually have a working PC with wrong BIOS. You should flash with right BIOS and ignore BIOS type warning.
NO WARRANTIES!

FLASH WENT WRONG - DEAD PC!

1. Don´t blame me!
2. There are lots of tips in Forums! (www.amdmb.com - www.a7vtroubleshooting.com)
3. Easy way is having a spare BIOS chip, or being able to lend one.
