[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 399

1. You cannot use the USB 3.0 ports to install Windows 7 from (that's why you get the error message). It works fine from a USB 2.0 port.

2. I've been PM'd several times on how to downgrade the BIOS so i'll just post a quick guide here smile.gif

Completely close the Asus AI suite and any security programs (A/V, anti-malware, etc). If your overclock isn't 110% stable, reboot and set stock settings in the BIOS. Then download Aptio, unzip it, and run "AFUWINx64.exe". It's in /amiflash/aptio/afuwin64.

Point Aptio to your 0706 rom and hit flash. You shouldn't need to adjust any of the other options available.

Your computer will appear to freeze/lag and you may see crazy temperature/voltage readings and/or hear corrupted audio coming from the speakers; this is normal.

When it's done, you can power down and reboot to be running 0706 again.

Has anyone got a chance to get Mac OSX on the board? Or has any clue on starting the process? I have been looking on the forums and stuff but no real instructions. If I am able to get it all set up I'll be sure to create a instructional list.

Thanks. I will give it a try later today. This might be something we want posted on the first page LA_Kings.

Yep I'm running Lion on mine. I'll post some instructions later!

Question about AI Charger for fast charging iphones etc. Will it work via front case USB 3.0? Or do I need to have the usb cable connected to one of the rear USB ports found directly on the mobo itself.

Yeah I just rebooted after install and I looked at the AI suite and it says it's AI Charger
+ for 3.0 so I guess it's made for USB 3.0 which is only on the front header of my case. I can't tell 100% sure if the 3x charging speed is working but my iPhone certainly seems like it's charging pretty damn fast. It's basically just climbing up the percentages every 30s-1min.

Right, I've written this forum a guide on how to install OSX, with specific aim to the Maximus Gene-Z.

Hope it helps.

Well for me, I don't usually have the wall socket charger available or nearby. My lady likes to unplug those and roll them up into a drawer. On top of that I'm at my computer a lot throughout the day and having my USB cable plugged in and to allow my phone to just charge while I'm on the comp is nice, 3x charge speed is even nicer. I think I do almost all of my charging while on the computer actually so why not utilize something I already have available to me =)
