    P06 seems to be the most stable, bug-less BIOS for 24/7.
    G22 looks good for benching.

    BenchZowner,

    If you would also not mind posting what switches to use when flashing the bios from awdflash USB stick method.

    That would be of help for me, as I will bookmark this thread for quick reference.

    Here's how I flashed my board using my USB Flash Disk Drive:

    1) Download the SFX Installer containing a Windows 98SE Boot Disk Image & the HP USB Storage Format Tool from here ( Click me! )

    2) Run the HPtoolWIN98image.exe and press the Install button.

    3) After the extraction process the SFX Installer will automatically launch the setup program for the HP USB Storage Format tool.
    Continue the installation via the setup wizard as usual.

    4) Plug in your USB Flash Disk Drive, and open up HP's USB Storage Format tool.
    Select your USB Drive at the "Device" drop-down menu.
    Set the File System to FAT32.
    Give your volume a label ( e.g. FLASH )
    In the format options field:
    tick the "Quick Format" option
    tick the Create a DOS startup disk and select the "using DOS system files located at" option and press the "..." button ( Browse ) and set it ( select ) to point at C:\Temp\Windows 98SE Boot Disk directory

    Finally press the "Start" button and wait for the format process to finish.
    When done, close the HP USB Storage Format tool by pressing the... close button

    5) Now open the flash drive @ My Computer and copy and paste the BIOS File ( 8A1F1G13 ) and the awdflash.exe file that I'm going to link as well.

    download awdflash.exe ( click me! )

    6) Now restart the PC and boot from your USB Drive.

    At the command prompt type the following command:

    awdflash 8A1F1G13.BIN /py /sn /Wb /cd /cc /cp /ch /H2

    and press enter.
    Give it some time, it will load the AWDflash utility, and automatically input the commands.

    so there is a difference between benching and 24/7

    what do you consider the good qualities that
    you recommend for benching, and 24/7

    i have 3 BR's boards now so i'm interested is what bios i should be using and 1 is for benching and 2are my 24/7 workstations...

    thanks in advance/

    I just switched to P06 and there is very easy methode for flashing it. Create a bootable USB Stick, copy AWDFLASH, your BIOS and an Autotexec.bat on it.
    Edit the Autoexec.bat to:
    @echo off
    cls
    @ECHO OFF
    C:\AWDFLASH xxxxxxx.BIN /cks/sn/py/cc/cd/cp/ld/qi/WB/ch
    echo "The version of BIOS was inaccurate,"
    echo "Please remove the floppy, download the right one and re-flash."
    @ECHO OFF
    (xxxxxxx.BIN is standing for your BIOS)

    After you restarted, check that your Harddrive is first Bootpriority and the USB Stick is first Bootpriority in drives. Load Optimized Defaults and reboot. After that your Bios should flash automaticly.
    Little Edit, because my order was a bit wrong (of course you have to load optimized defaults before setting Boot Priorities..)

    What does P08 specifically do that P06 does not? I saw the "Update Intel RC code to version 1.03.4.", but what does that mean?

    The only things that I have gathered is that it did a Update Intel RC code to version 1.03.4. My assumption is that is a microcode update. I am testing the p08 now.

    For me it has seemed to improve memory compatibility as I am able to push my Mushkins more than before. I have previously used p06 p07 and g22.

    I have a D0 engineering sample, I can only get it to windows in safe mode and overclock there. It worked fine on a GA-EX58-UD3R with a decent OC.

    Currently have the G13 bios, is there one with better support for the about to be released CPUs?

    It's currently on G22 but I cannot OC in BIOS, using Aegis is fine but turbo's not kicking in and the RAM (3x2GB Dominator GT 2000MHz) isn't set up right.
