Hi All I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this, as I am sure that there have probably been a lot if request for help with this particular make of board. I am currently using a old backup machine (which is from the ark) as my Intel DX58SO just decided to bite the dust..... this was about +- 3 months ago. Since then I have read almost every forum and or piece of info related to this particular bios, so far every attempt to restore this bios has failed, I have even gone as far as building several flash tools ranging from Ezo's flash v4.4 to Willem Programmer V3.1, I finally achieved programming success with SPI Flash Programmer. Now my issue is that the bios downloaded from Intel's support page is in a container which gets extracted and repackaged within the bios chip being programmed. (the use of this particular system for bios flashing still eludes me.) I am in no way an engineer or programmer, it has been of interest to me in the past as I wanted to be a engineer. anyway what I am asking for is a backup of a working DX58SO bios so that I can flash it with a serial programmer, or if someone could please explain how I could unpack the original bios file from Intel and rebuild my bios with a bios editor.(sounds like a huge amount of work from what I have read on other forums as I do not have the programming knowledge to undertake said project.) Any help regarding this matter would be appreciated as I cannot afford to purchase a new board and processor. In advance thanks for taking the time to read this and potentially assist me with my little problem.
