Has anyone else had problems with this Bios? After installing it, I was unable to start Xwindows in Linux and Win2k didn't even boot.

Basically, I would get this screen with tons of asci symbols and the machine would hard lock.

I changed to Fluxbox as my Window manager, X started, then locked up in about 2 seconds.

AFter about 15 reboots I went back to 1003 and everything is fine.

I installed 1004 today and everything worked great. I went from 186fsb to 211 Stable! Which is amazing, been doin some intensive testing and everything been super so far!

Did you load optimised defaults before you installed 1004? Then when it was installed reloaded them on again and boot to windows?

I didn't do crap to it before I flashed. Right now I am running a Tbred-B 2700+ and OCZ 433Mhz ram at 333Mhz. I can push the ram to about 415 with no problems at all with version 1003. Problem is that my memory benchmarchs show that this is actually slightly slower than running it at 333. So, I leave it at 333.

I don't have a processor that can take advantage of the 400Mhz FSB but at some point I probably will.

I'll try setitng my bios config to defaults, flashing, then redoing it from scratch.
