Question ID: 786795
I'm dealing with a TYAN s3870 motherboard that i have to build and
change bios settings extremely often.  I'm looking to automate this
process via a shell command line and have been unable to find an easy
way to manipulate the BIOS settings. I've tried using a serial port to
access the bios, and I can pass it an "f2" to get to bios remotely,
but its nearly impossible to script and read it very effectively.  I'm
looking for a way to flash the bios remotely and/or read or edit the
configuration.  I dont even mind setting the bios the way I like,
reading the BIOS settings for the multiple configurations i need to
test, but I need to be able to flash or change the bios to these
different configurations quickly, hopefully in a shell script.  Anyone
know how to do this?  I can't find information from Tyan regarding how
to do this or what to use - im afraid to do too many "tests" because i
dont want to fry my motherboards.  Big tip for a useful answer
