its best to use ASUS EZ Flash 2 in the BIOS setup under Tools to flash a BIOS see manual updating your BIOS

Just received my motherboard back from RMA and I'd have to say I'm pretty impressed with Asus and their customer service. I requested an RMA number, sent my motherboard on 1/29, Asus received it on 2/1, and had it sent back to me today (2/11)... So the whole thing took less than 2 weeks.

I was expecting to wait twice as longer for it. Maybe the reason why it went so quickly was because it was only a small repair, the on-board sound wasn't working. I'm just glad that I got my original board back since I've only had it for a year and it's been babied and not abused.... I know there's a couple of people here that haven't been as lucky with their motherboards.

OK, I have the latest BIOS for my Rev 1 board, but I looked at the download site and only see the download for the ROM. Where do I find the log you mentioned that lists the changes?

Right where you downloaded it from it says:
Quote:
  1. Improve system stability.
  2. Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

And if you wanted to see what other stuff from previous BIOS's, you just scroll down and read each of the BIOS's.
