I got problems to get my pioneer dvd drive running. with
Sissoft Sandra 2001 I get read errors. I takes a long time to get the data's of the insert disk.

It also tooks a long time to install apps.

the system was much more faster before flashing my babe with the OC bios

Does a OC-bios with release date 2002 exist and does anyone knows where i get it ???

If you install the jan 12 bios there is a little program over there that will change the fsb settings in the cmos so you can use the same ones in the OC bios with the new one(there are no new overclocking bioses). It can only do the 100,112,124,133, 138,150 and 166 settings because the options are still present in the bios and are just no longer shown. Its called chfsb I think and has to run in a pure dos environment so you'll have to boot from floppy(warning below).

If you flashed the 0806 or 0814 OC bioses do all the disk formatting and copying from another computer as only the 0911 oc bios had the correction for win xp/2000 floppy writes, otherwise you'll get a zillion errors on anything saved to the floppy.
