RE: e4310 bios
I dont know about "force-flash". I ran the exe as administrator from windows, approved the upgrade and left as things were proceeding nominally. If will admit to not having fully read the upgrade notification but saw current a14 and upgrade to a16 and clicked okay. If there was a warning in there the message looked no different than upgrade approvals I have done hundreds of times. My EEPROM writer is an antique but I do have another 4310 that I may try to frankencomputer the two into a functioning unit. Thanks for your reply- it is what I feared. Lesson learned.
