While we hope someone has that image, where is the backup of those files?
That is, this sort of issue could have occurred if a glitch happened with the power at the wrong moment or any other number of disasters. What is the disaster plan here?
I have a Gateway GM 5457E.
It has an Intel motherboard D945GCFG1
BQCF704003X2 AA D73937-204
BIOS string is CF94510J.15A
Onboard Raid (Intel Matrix Sorage Manager) was working on the machine.
I upgraded BIOS to V62 with package from Gateways Website
Raid stopped working completely.
I downgraded BIOS to V38 from same website.
Raid still does not work.
Gateway says they do not have original factory BIOS image file.
This is Gateway site with all details on my machine.
Would anyone have a copy of the original factory BIOS image file?
If someone does have the same machine with working onboard raid, and would be willing to make a copy of the BIOS image, I would be very grateful. If you need instructions on how to make a copy, I can tell you.
Whatever, you do, do not use Gateway's update to flash your bios, especially if you use the onboard Raid and Intel Matrix Storage Manager. The update will destroy your ability to use the raid.
