All you have to do is unpack the file on a formatted, bootable piece of media (floppy, CD, USB stick, Etc.) and boot from that. The autoexe.bat file I provided will do everything for you.
I would do this just make sure you have a backup of your bios incase of bad flash. Flashing is quite easy tho

But is it as "safe" as flashing, or is it like... BETAVERSION STILL IN PROGRESS, USE AT OWN RISK'ish? Flashing does have some risks, am i right?

There is always a risk flashing anything. I did use everything that the manufacturer uses to flash their bios though. The only thing I changed was the .bin file, so the risk is no greater than flashing the manufacturers bios.
If it comforts you at all, this is not my first rodeo. I've modded bios' for years for a hundred different boards. This was just a simple un-lock.
I do understand your concern though, as you don't know me from a bag of beans.

he didnt mod anything so its not "betaish" its the same exact bios you have he just turned a feature on that was in the bios just turned off. If you dont feel safe dont do it but If it was me I would have done it already (and im reluctant to flash stuff as well).

Be sure to clear the CMOS after you're done flashing.

Why is that btw... I seem to remember something with taking out a battery of some sort ?

Saw this video relating BIOS flashing, would it be safe to use method #2 with this flash ?
post #18 of 21
Just use the file the way I said earlier. It's the manufacturer's suggested method.
Yes, to clear the CMOS you can just remove the small round battery from the motherboard for a minute or so.
