I successfully installed a BIOS Savior RD1-PMC4 on my Tyan Tiger MPX
(S2466N-4M) today. It works just fine, but I cannot identify the Flash
chip on it (0x9d/0x6e) -- if anyone knows how to track this down, I'd
love to know. In the meantime I forced it to work with Steven James's
flash_tool program. The flash chip that Tyan shipped with the board is
I presume the RD1-PMC2 would work on the older Tiger MP board.
I can't say whether Tyan's DOS-based flash utility works with this beast
or not. I can't get it to run at all on my machine -- it complains that
himem.sys is loaded, even on a boot disk that doesn't contain himem.sys!
I tried a handful of other flash utilities but none of them would ID the
BIOS Savior chip for me.
