Can you flash the BIOS of a prebuilt?

Threaded View

Just came across some Compaq mobos that I'd like to use for some builds.
Can I flash the Compaq bios out (I'd like to at least get rid of the Compaq
startup screen), or otherwise flash the bios to something that might provide
some additional parameters?

Find out what MOBO it is, and replace it with a generic BIOS.

If it is some compaq proprietary thing, they may not allow flashing, or
there may be only one bios option.
