I'm trying to flash the new March 14th BIOS, and I've tried it 3 times using 3 different downloads, and 3 different disks. But the same thing always happens:

1- Boot to DOS using Windows ME boot disk

2- At the A: prompt, type "Awdflash"

3- When the flash utility loads, I enter "XPR0314.bin" where it asks for "File to Program: ", and then hit enter

4- At this point, my disk drive starts running and I get the "Please Wait!" prompt from the flash utility, but my drive just keeps running until I end up restarting the computer after about 10 min.

I've flashed the BIOS on this board 3 times previously with no problems. Any ideas?
