Make a bootable floppy on another comp that automatically flashes the bios and boot from it. You can add the flash command in the autoexec.bat

i have a question about this Motherboard, the AGP and PCI-E is limited to 133 mb/s max bus, theirs a way to increase this 133 mb/s bus? and it's not dangerous to increase this bus?

And what is the max bus in the pure PCI-E and AGP motherboard?

Normal PCI slots have a max of 133Mb/s
AGP and PCI-e go a lot higher. Yes you can overclock busses by increasing the FSB without a PCI/AGP lock. You can usually overclock them a bit though it's quite pointless and stability depends on cards connected to these busses, some can take pretty high clocks, others crash instantly.
I wouldn't bother.

yes, the ULI 1695 flags a full speed full bandwidth pci express slot,
the max ¨speed¨ of a pci express was 8GB/sec i think,

btw, its in your best interest to keep PCI express at 100mhz and pci at 33mhz, usualy, passing 37mhz can cause instablity, that would be 112mhz for the pci express bus,

PCI = 33 MHz, AGP = 66 MHz, PCI-E = 100 MHz.

theres no need to overclock ANY of them. you could also damage things.

my friend has a motherboard without an agp/pci lock, and he overclocked...fried his graphics card, a usb controller and his sound card...
