I saw this board a while back and was quite interested (in fact, I was
thinking of picking one up). The two main reasons for having the dual
flash is to protect from 1) flash virii, and 2) interrupted/corrupted
flash updating. Therefore, It should be quite neat for our purposes and
it doesn't matter what code you put on it.
Ah, but you missed the point that I was/am worried about. Can _we_ write our
code to BIOS1 and not to BIOS2 and if our code is good in BIOS1 will it get
copied to BIOS2 automatically on successful boot? How does BIOS2 deturmine if
BIOS1 has corrupt code - will it detect our code as corrupt etc etc etc.... I
think we need to talk to gigabyte about the board, and functionality on a
I am currently looking at building a new machine and that M/B maybe a good choice
if the DualBIOS is usable...
