Actually its right. But don't forget to enable the BIOS shadow feature
first, and use a plastic ic extractor, and do not have drunk too much
coffee.

You can then plug in the chip to be written. In fact with the force
parameter (/f) the AwardFlash.exe can write any binary its given
(assuming it fits). So you can create a BIOS chip for another
motherboard if you need to.

Of course i don't endorse or recommend this at all.

That two flash socket motherboard mentioned elsewhere could provide
safer route to same goal.

cheers,
Paul
