Old thread to ressurrect, but wanted to add my feedback.
I have a Foxconn C51XEM2AA
(running an X2 5600+
)and successfully installed p4spooky's BIOS from post #41, specifically 612W2P36_Updated_Roms_SLIC.BIN
and using jasoninaz's DOS command+modifiersawdflash 612W2P36_Updated_Roms_SLIC.BIN /CC /CD /CP /F /R /PY /SN
(though for me, in bare DOS the .BIN was shortened to "612W2P~1.BIN", or something similar, as expected).
First boot did not POST (scary!), so I unplugged the rig and held the power button to hopefully clear it (note that one of the options above is supposed to do this after the BIOS flash) and also held INSERT while booting (I know some boards will run defaults when you do this, not sure if mine does or not...).
Booted just perfect.
I then went about installing the new CPU, which was a huge pain in my case/setup (have to pull the board to remove the heatsink, and I noticed a couple blown capacitors that delayed the final installation even more...). CPU is identified correctly
as well all clock speeds including RAM. The CPU I put in it was a Phenom II 940 [BE]
. Not sure what wattage it was... 95w or 125w... (Did the 940 even come in 95w?)
Not going to overclock any time soon, so I haven't tested the multiplier (which I assume is locked).
Thanks for everyone's hard work on this project. I have had this thread sitting at the very top of my favorites for over a year now, just waiting until I had the guts to do it (and the extra $$$!).
