P8P67 PRO BIOS "fun"

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So finally got by SB build put together. The believe the board came with version 1503 on it. I say I believe because I recall 1503 but the ASUS website lists 1502... I'd installed Win 7 x64 and the system appeared to be stable. I should also note I'd set the clock multiplier to 43 and set my memory timings per their specs.

Maybe I should have left well enough alone. I did have a little weirdness like the dobuld POSTing though so decided to update to 1704. From what I saw it looked like the most recent non-beta version. I updated using the Windows tool (maybe my second mistake).

The update appeared to take and the system rebooted. When it came up though, it tried to boot, didn't quite post and shut back down. Then powered back on for a couple of seconds, then back down. Wash rinse repeat.

So I decided to power completely down. I let the system sit for a couple of seconds and hit the power. The system now POSTed and I was able to enter BIOS! It showed the correct updated version so I decided to un-overclock and put all settings back to Auto/ defaults and rebooted. Back to the reboot loop...

Any suggestions? Should I try to clear CMOS? update again and downgrade back to the previous version? I'm at a bit of a loss here and any suggestions are appreciated!

You need to make sure you have AHCI enabled if you installed windows like that. And have all your setting set like they were before the flash. When you do a bios flash it resets the settings to default.

Installed Windows like what? I believe I had to chose RAID since I have an SSD as my OS drive and then a RAID 0 array with two drives for games etc. Am I confusing settings? It looked like after the flash my BIOS settings were still OC'ed to a 43x multiplier and my memory timings were set.

BIOS update should have reset everything (even profiles), though PC Probe may have stepping in and put everything back afterwards.
I'd download 2001 BIOS (am running it, no problems to report here at all), copying it to a USB memory stick, plug it in, go into BIOS and update through the update utility in the BIOS.

something must have gone wrong with the first update process. I reflashed BIOS with the BIOS update utility to 2001 and all settings seemed to be reset this time. For some reason I had to reinstall Windows but that was no big deal since it was a fresh install to begin with. Now back to tweaking and OC'ing! Thanks for the help all.

Flash Routine
1. Reset your UEFI to Optimized Defaults, reboot, enter UEFI and then flash to the new UEFI build.
2. After flash and restart, enter Windows/Linux, then exit and shutdown.
3. Remover the power cord from the power supply, wait thirty seconds, press Power On button to clear any remaining charge, clear CMOS for five seconds, reattach the power cord, power on the system, enter UEFI, set to Optimized Defaults, save and exit.
4. Enter UEFI, set your system to customized settings based on your system configuration (RAID, OC, etc), save and exit.

I never flash BIOS unless I'm getting errors or I read something in the patch notes which is of particular significance.
