I couldn't get the above link to work so here's my
suggeted Fix. It's a bit complicated so sorry if
this seems long.

First you need to get some instruction on how to
preform the upgrade. Download
and ONLY extract the "Update BIOS Procedure.doc"
file! Put it in a safe spot and delete the zip.
Don't worry about the included .bin file.
This is just the only place I know of to get the
instructioins on AWARD's flash upgrades.

Next you will need to download
Put it with the doc you got from the zip a minute
ago. (That doc happens to be the instructions for
the awdflash.exe you just downloaded)

Next you need the actual BIOS update. =)
you can download BIOS updates through version A.7.
(*Note* The above link is Google's translation
of the page from German to English. The original
page can be found at )

you can get ver A.8 dated 10/15/99
which is the most recent as far as I can tell.
(*Note 2* Now I don't swear which version is
right or most up to date. But I am
going to try this on my sys.)

If you want more info on how this worked out for
me or if you can't get some of the files just
send me a email at (really works)
Good Luck to Us!
