I've never flashed a BIOS like that. Normally I run it from floppy.
I've only ever used the update that actually boots direct from the
floppy not having to go into Windows first then into DOS. I know that
there are ways of flashing via Windows but I prefer the old fashioned
If you can get into the BIOS and the machine POSTS (does it?) then the
flashing was probably succesful. Could the upgrade have buggered
memory recognition? It would be highly unusual as normally an upgrade
would add the types of memory useable by a particular board not
subtract from them.
Have you tried the first trick of reseating the memory?
