"Source File Not Found" while flashing bios

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am trying to flash my 680i LT bios to a 680i A1 bios. I know you can do this. I burnt the bios ISO to disk using PowerISO. Reset my mobo settings and then ran installation processes. At first it says its not compatable, So i typed AWDflash n68_p131.pin and then it ask me if i want to back up my bios. I say no (i have tried yes) after that it just says source file not found. I was going by these instructions
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/24...h-680i-dummies

It says "Step 2: Make a boot floppy with the file. I have not been successful doing this mod with CD's or USB keys. USB floppy drives work fine, and at $9-10, there's no reason not to have one. To use a USB floppy, you have to change Drive A: to "none" in the BIOS. Follow the instructions on your manufacturer's website. "


I have no cash and no way of getting hold of a floppy. Is their any thing i can do?

ON this thread the guy said he had success with a CD ISO

Make a bootable usb drive and use that it's the easiest way. Works for me.
