At this point your only two options are quit or retry.So I retry, now it won't even try to write the bios.

First, you need to run cwsdpmi.exe, then run spipgm.I then wired this to the ribbon cable and hooked the power connector into another running machine. HOWTO: Supplies: To make the cable I used a DB25M TO IDC10 SERIAL connector. They look like this: The header is found on the motherboard directly to the left of the south bridge.Here is how the header pins are numbered: Here is a table showing which header pins should be connected to what parallel pins. Here's what my cable looks like (Note: it looks like the power lead is connected to the DB25 but in fact it is solder to the ribbon, it goes to pin 1 on the header) If you use a cable similar to mine, open it up and desolder the ribbon from the connector.After a lot research I stumbled upon a few pages (linked at the bottom) that documented the type of cable necessary and the software to use this port to reflash the bios.The cable consists of a parallel connector wired to something you can plug into the pins that also has a 2.7V-3.6V input to power the chip while reflashing it.
