>> Re: BIOS file extension
I think it's just .bin

Edit - depends:
Tyan uses 3 different BIOS for its motherboards. We use Award, AMI and Phoenix core BIOS. The Award BIOS uses a .bin file extension while the AMI and Phoenix BIOS use a .rom extension. If you BIOS ends in an .exe or .zip then you need to unzip the file into its primary parts of: BIOS file, flash utility, .txt file and batch file.
