Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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.
