Please downloaded your BIOS and follow my instruction. (I tested them on
my Fedora - minus the flash, most of my Gigabyte boards are AMD
$ mkdir Temp
$ cd Temp
$ WINEPREFIX=$PWD wine motherboard_bios_s651mprz_f8.exe
autoexec.bat dosdevices drive_c FLASH891.EXE
Now copy the FLASH891.EXE and s651mprz.f8 and autoexec.bat files to your
freedos and floppy / USB disk / FAT partition / freedos network boot
image and flash the BIOS.
Delete the Temp directory once your down.
