                            Load Utility User's Manual
                            
Overview
-----------
The HighPoint controller BIOS load utility (load.exe) is used to flash BIOS 
for HighPoint HPT3xx ATA controllers.

Usage
-----------
The load.exe must run under pure DOS environment. It cannot run in a Windows
DOS box. You should boot from a DOS floppy without any device drivers.

The following command line is used to launch the load utility.

    load [options] [filename]

The utility will search for all matching controllers on the system and prompt
to flash each BIOS by default.

Command line parameters
----------------------------

  filename
        Specifies the file name of the BIOS image.
        
  Options:
  
     /Q 
            Silent mode. The program will not prompt for you to confirm 
            the flashing process.
                
     /V
            Verbose mode. The program will show more detailed information
            about the flashing process.
                
     /S <bus>
            Only search adapters on specified PCI bus. <bus> specifies 
            the PCI bus number (a value from 0 to 255).
                
     /D <device> 
            Only search adapters for specified PCI device number. <device>
            specifies the PCI device number (a value from 0 to 31).
                 
     /C     
            Configure BIOS parameters before updating EEPROM. This option
            is only available for HPT controller BIOSes that have 
            configurable BIOS parameters.
            
     /I
            Use I/O access instead of memory access. This may help to avoid
            flash operation failure on some systems.
                
     /B <address>
            This option is for advanced users only. When flashing, the utility
            will map its space to a 32-bit physical address. On most systems, 
            the address is determined automatically. If the utility fails, you
            can try to specify an address by this option. <address> is a HEX 
            number in the form 0xXXXXXXXX.
                    
     /E <address>=<value>[,<address>=<value>¡­]
            This option is for advanced users only. You can use this option 
            to patch BIOS <address> and <value> specify the offset in BIOS 
            image and DWORD data value to be set.
