Evox M8 Bios Flash
Posted 28 August 2005 - 04:43 AM
CHIP TYPE > LPC based (SST49LF020)
1.Bios > Unknown
MD5 Hash =11B2EB01215A66A98081724A4C0FE93E
2.Bios > Unknown
and then a similar thing
and then it has a list for 256k bioses whick lists 4 bioses all as unknown. I figure this is to do with adding all of those new hashes into evox.ini but I can't remember where I saw it or how to add them. Can anyone help please?
Also I'm wanting to upgrade my hard drive to a 140 gig drive from the retail one can anyone recommend a particular brand or doesn't it matter as long as it's IDE and it's able to be set to slave/master?

Ya just copy that whole list, overwriting your originals, in that area of your ini.
But be advised that if you have edited your bios in anyway(color, igr, lba48,etc) then the hash will be different.
Any major brand of ide(pata) hardrives, will be fine... I always use maxtors and never have a problem.
You cant scrap a thread, you have to ask a mod to close it.

The only reason to mod a bios is to patch it for large drive support or add igr(preferred over dash igr) or change the colors of the flubber ani or x logo.
If your chip supports 512k banks then the new 512k xecuter bioses are worth a look, they can be configged with an .ini file to make any changes to above features. There are some .ini file generating programs available for them as well.. if you wanna try them out.
Glad to help, good luck.

Under 512k bioses there are two bios listings but they both show the same hash number which is: 11B2EB01215A66A98081724A4C0FE93E
Under 256k bioses there are four listings which are all the same hash number which is: 860C69A33B2D73284DAE8D9F561C3B77 Is there any reason why they wouldn't be reporting back as being Evox M8 in the Bios Checker besides the bios having been edited 'cause I'm reasonably certain I haven't done that. When I have Slayers install Disc 2.6 inserted it shows the bios on the menu as being Evox M8 but when I boot to the Evox menu it shows as unknown. Should I create my own rom line for the .ini file or just not worry about it? Thanx in advance
