I am trying to update a Biostar M5ALC's BIOS in the hope that it will enable it to boot from drives larger than 32GB. It has an Award BIOS, so I am attempting to use awdflash in 98 SE's DOS mode, but every .bin I try throws the aforementioned error, including the dumps of the existing BIOS awdflash itself created. Is this normal behavior if the filenames don't match, or does this suggest that the chip isn't reprogrammable? I am using awdflash 8.99 from wimsbios and trying BIOS ALC1020B from https://theretroweb.com/motherboards/s/biosta … m5alc#downloads
On a side note, it's very silly that the Windows 2000 setup environment can interface perfectly with a 128GB SSD on the board but can't finish because the board can't boot from it.
