I am trying to update the BIOS on this motherboard, but it is telling me that it is write protected.
The manual states the option to disable this is in the BIOS settings in 'Miscellaneous Control' however, it does not appear in there.
I have been through the other BIOS Setup pages very carefully but cannot find any reference to it.
In fairness the manual contradicts itself as the picture of the 'Miscellaneous Control' page does not show the option! It shows what I can see.
When I try to update the BIOS it gets right to the end and says the BIOS is right protected, 'Check the jumper settings'.
So this indicates that the right protect is jumper controlled, however, I cannot find any jumper that seems to indicate in any way that it is for this.
I have also spent several hours Googling the problem with no results.
As this is Rev: 1.0 would this seem to indicate that this is an early version? The picture of the board on the Jetway website it very slightly different.
Anyway, can someone please help with this one because I really am tearing out my hair....what's left of it.

Re: Jetway S755MAX Rev: 1.0 BIOS Update
I understand what you are saying. The only course of action I see left is to e mail the company and ask them if there is a way to skip the "disabling" step in the update. If there is no way to skip the step then I see no way to update the Bios.

Hi, This problem might be with bios of motherboard.so download the correct bios update file for that system and update.when you update the system make sure that system connected with ups.this problem will be solved.
this sounds like a BIOS update needed, I have a jetway motherboard that did the exact same thing and after visiting the manufacturers website and obtaining a BIOS Update my PC is now as fast booting up as it is when it fully loaded. Visit the dell website if you haven't already and go to the download and drivers section enter your service tag scroll down find the BIOS part in the drivers section, Then follow the on-screen prompts carefully read how to install it write it down if necessary then update your BIOS and within a very short time you should be booting up at light speed instead of turtle speed. Hope this helps.
Yes, it's the BIOS at fault here. Use an older processor (anyone as long it fits the socket will do) to run it for now. To update the BIOS you have 2 options: 1 - install completely (drivers, programs ,all) Windows, go to Dell and download (as in Save, not Run) the BIOS update utility (it's an exe) unto your pc, boot into Safe Mode and run it. This way has the advantage that is easy but you might stumble into problems with the WGA - you might have to reactivate windows by phone. 2 - use the linux way - http://liquidat.wordpress.com/2007/05/20/howto-update-bios-on-linux/ For that you will need at least basic knowledge of command line operations - practically you will have to manually input 2 commands: one to goto the file ( cd place_of_file) the other to exectute it (run name_of_file). Best way if you know what you're doing it.
This is okay for your basic internet usage. Sure, you can play some games on it but it's going to depend on the type / memory of the video card you put into it and the amount of system memory as well. With prices these days, I can sell you a dual core NEW computer for $399 and a quad core computer for $599 with specs that would blow that away. Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya. :c)
