    I recently accidently loaded the wrong BIOS on my ASUS P2L97S MB (I
    loaded the dual-processor P2L97DS BIOS), after which I could not boot.
    After griping to all and sundry that ASUS's install program doesn't
    warn when your BIOS update is wrong for your MB, I borrowed use of a
    EEPROM programmer and reprogrammed the chip. Fortunately the BIOS
    EEPROM is in a nice DIP package, and ASUS's BIOS upgrade files are
    straight binary dumps. Worked like a charm.

    Now I'm never going to install a BIOS early in the morning on little
    sleep again... :)
