Win 95 Deletes Bios Away on KX133 boards - FrostyTech.com Win 95 Deletes Bios Away on KX133 boards
Sat Apr 01, 2000 | 3:54A| PermaLink
Overclocker 12:07am / vr-zone.com Caution with the application of Microsoft Windows 95 on Main boards with the VIA KX133 Chipsets: The operating system destroys sections of BIOS contents, so that the board functions no longer functions or functions incorrectly. The questionable routine executes Windows 95 both during the installation and with each shutdown. In the laboratory the error at three of the Main boards conceived for the AMD Athlon could be reconstructed: EPoX 7KXA, NMC 7VAX and AOpen AK72. With the latter the damage holds itself within limits, since the system was despite overwritten BIOS able, an BIOS update to execute. The boards of EPoX and NMC did not start however no more, so that one had to remove the BIOS building block, in order to reprogrammed the bios manually. The Asus K7V with a Award Medallion BIOS seems not affected, likewise with the KX133 Chipset: The BIOS Setup offers a write protection (BIOS update disabled), but even without this protection Windows 95 the BIOS did not change. Here's some solutions provide by EPoX : Installing the above mentioned operating system will damage the BIOS software, thus causing no screen upon next reboot. At this time we suggest using Windows 95 OSR2.x or newer until a fix is found for the issue. Even with fixing the BIOS by a reflash you should not use the older OS, until a fix is found, as upon next shutdown it will again corrupt the BIOS.
