Installed the beta bios and instantly panicked. My pc restarted 3 times on its own and then when I started Windows all hell broke loose
It started in VERY low resolution and started adding new hardware. So before I could cancel out it used Windows updated drivers for everything and I mean everything including the chipset.
So I restarted and tried to redo all my drivers to only get a message saying that my Win 7 install is counterfiet and to contact MS. Shutdown again upon restart I get the nice message again about not being a valid install so I try to manually activate and it says my windows key is no longer valid.
Just got off the phone with MS and somehow my RETAIL key is no longer valid and they won't reactivate w/o me purchasing another key. So I used the key off my second machine and it worked. Problem now is with all the drivers properly installed I have 3 unidentified devices that I'm unable to find drivers for.
I guess Asrock pulled the bios for a good reason. I see that a few of you updated with no problems so I don't know what happened in my case. The one good thing about the update is my mouse now works flawlessly in the bios for the first time.
If anyone could explain to me my issues with MS it would be appreciated. In the mean time please think twice before updating.
