Has anyone used the October BIOS' ">http://www.iwill-japan.co.jp/s...ID=32&MID=26&Value=200 for their IWILL DK8N? (This BIOS is not available on the US IWILL site.)

I'm running the 10/28 bios in order to successfully install Windows. With the public bios and Corsair memory, the machine wouldn't even boot to DOS w/ out hoop jumping (remove all drives on the sil sata controller, pull all but 1 dimm). Still don't have a 1Gb e'net (100Mb only), but I'll admit I haven't had time to work on that problem at all.

Interestingly, the bios I got from US support (after calling the direct line) has a different date than the one you linked to. After unpacking the one you linked to, they have different dates. Good luck...

I'm worried the BIO text may be in Kanji. ;-)

New RealTek ALC655 driver' ">http://www.realtek.com.tw/down...series=8&Software=True available today. You need to re-load the Nvidia Sound after loading it.
