    Link a file that works, that's how anyone can help. :)
    I am frustrated as it has wrong time, shuts down wifi and I have to reboot in order to get it to work. I tried 1.6 bios and it just flashes on screen and closes window.

    'problem getting flash information' - so I follow the directions, I think, as best as I can see - that's the message I get, it is @ version 1.3 - any advice?

    You should be looking for...
    CHT0A 1.XX x64

    1.XX being the BIOS version number.

    Ken, my new Z-83 came with BIOS version CHT0A 1.70 X64.
    Will you be releasing it here?
    I think I can back it up with the flash tool if not.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I just made the same mistake, missing the colon, and I also tried “update.nsh”, which gave “auto shutdown after update successes!”, then an error message “problem opening file for reading”.

    Then I cannot enter commands and I am stuck on this screen. I guess I have to power down with the power button, but will that brick the PC?

    Not much choice so I tried and it is fine now.
