: Excellent question!
: Well IMO there is a couple ways:
: 1)Use a generic flash utility in DOS. I suggest trying Uniflash- get it here>>>
: Just place Uniflash on a DOS boot floppy and boot system from floppy, then type "uniflash" >enter. Follow the menus to backup BIOS to floppy! That is it.(please note uniflash will not work with all boards)

: 2)Use the flash utility for your particular BIOS/MB. (awdflash/amiflash etc...)
: You would need to enter the appropriate command line switches. (See the readme for the flash utility you are using)
: Example: "awdflash /pn/sy backup.bin" means program= no and save =yes to backup.bin

: 3)Pull the eeprom from the motherboard and read it in an external programmer. (not practical for most people)

: Once you have read the data, make sure you verify the bin/rom image is the correct size and has a good data in it. (use checksum when avail.)

: That was a great question! I hope this helps answer it a lil. :)
: Best Regards,
