    Im not sure if you can boot from CF since i dont have the CF daughterboard, but from the settings in the BIOS, i see no reason why you wouldnt be able to. I can boot from my USB DVD-RW if i want to, so as long as its a bootable device, it should work just fine. If anything else, you could just get a USB CF card reader and set the BIOS to boot from that. I have one hooked up right now, but its just for transporting data back and forth until i get wireless setup in the house to connect to my workgroup.

    I am trying to decide between one of these and the Via SP1300.
    Which would be the better choice?

    I think its a little too early to give you an honest answer which is better. Both are fairly new. I just took a chance on the Vista C7 because of price. Turns out the board is pretty nice and does what I need it too. Now if i could only figure out why my car and pc dont like each other and cant play nice on a regular basis, id be all set (but thats a whole different matter irrelevant to which board is better anyways)

    Wow, i must say, im a little bit dissapointed. It took me almost 3 weeks to FINALLY find a recent updated BIOS firmware for this motherboard. And, its 5 revisions newer than the one that came flashed on the board when i got it. Just for archive purposes, heres the link to the most recent BIOS flash i could find...

    http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/BIO...BIOS-A05.shtml

    Hope this helps.

    Also, you need disable write protect in teh BIOS, boot from a system floppy disk, copy both awdflash.exe (found at jetway.com.tw) and the *.bin file to the floppy, and run this command line exactly:

    awdflash.exe ********.bin /SN /PY /CC /R /F

    Then obviously go into BIOS and set up your preferences or just load optimized settings.

    If anyone needs the stock flash from the board (5-25-06 i believe) PM me and ill e-mail it over to you, i did manage to back mine up before reflashing.

    Not on the Award BIOS. You need to use their awdflash.exe and the correct *.bin BIOS file from a floppy boot disk from DOS. I know it sucks and i asked the exact same thing the day after i got mine in the mail too. Its actually not that hard to do, just a PITA since it seems so backwards to ATX form factor BIOS flashing these days.
