Hi Darmawan,

would it be possible to trace what the DOS vendor flashing tool for the
Gigabyte M57SLI rev2.0 board does? The board is using SPI and looking at
the SPI flash procedure may help us write a driver for the SPI
controller (probably located in MCP55) on the board.

Download location is:
The file you can download is a self-unpacking RAR archive with the
following contents:
autoexec.bat  FLASH895.EXE  m57sls42.fb

FLASH895.EXE uses the CauseWay DOS Extender and seems to be an Award
flash utility.
