If you mod BIOS using the flash files that AlteredImage is offering, Dell probably won't help you under warranty if the system fails to POST or otherwise crashes.I'm NOT saying AlteredImage's mods are bad or wrong. They're probably perfectly OK, and it is your machine to do whatever you want. But keep in mind the possibility that your warranty may be void after using his mods.You might just want to wait until after your Dell warranty expires... ;)Ron

All the files won't fit on 1.44 and I'm not having a good time getting a flash drive to be bootable. I got this bootDisk2BootStick http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2007/10/16/how-to-make-a-usb-flash-drive-bootable/ but it formats your flash drive down to 1.44 so my 2 gig is just as good as a floppy which won't fit all the files you have to flash the bios. I think with 3 500 gb drives over here it would be great to try something with parity. I don't feel I have enough information yet to get this to work from a flash drive. Lil help here from the community? Thanks! P.S. Did anyone have issues getting the standard mirror to work? Windows won't install to the drives. I've never wasted so much time on any board, even a budget one. They really know how to keep people from being productive over at Dell! I would like to see this bios work, as if not, I think a 2 dollar ebay motherboard will be easier set up than trying to make this work the way it should have from the start!
What happened to the lostbrain site? I used this for my father's 530 many years ago but mistakenly upgraded his bios when cleaning up his machine, now no more raid 5 and I can't find this file to save my life.
Anybody out there have this file archived?
