*Disclaimer 1: Bios flashing is always a risky procedure. So please do so at your own risk.

But I will add that DOS flashing is much less risky then windows flashing! *Disclaimer 2: This tutorial can be for AMD and Intel. You will also notice that the tutorial includes video cards as well. But this is the section a Mod recomended that I post it in for now. I hope once it is complete that it gets moved to a more central location!

It is still a work in process, but I have a big portion of it done (consider it a rough draft). My goal with this thread is to pool OCN's resources and knowledge so we can create an exhaustive tutorial for bios flashing usinf a USB Bootable drive. What we need to get this tutorial completed is to get as much input from everyone on different motherboard manufacturers as possible. So if you have figured out how to bios flash a motherboard from a specific manufactuer, or even a specific motherboard, please list it. I only ask that it be done using a bootable USB.
