Hi, I've managed to obtain some 486 and 386 ROM's that I would like to program. I would like to replace the current ROM code with that of the linux bios code. unfortunately I don't think that the boards support flash update?? how do I go about re-programming them??? what hardware and software is
Assuming they are indeed EPROMs, you need to determine the type of EPROM (make, code - e.g. AMD27Cxxxx and so on). Retrieve the datasheet from the manufacturers website, then determine how to program them.
required to re-write the bios?? would I be able to get away with a hot-swap??? or do i need a proper rom programmer, if so which one would you recommend.
If the EPROMs are not flashable, simply go for a burner that supports the type of chip(s) you have. I'm not sure what you mean by 'hot-swap' ?
regards, Per Jessen
