Need Help Flashing Asus Bios

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Trying to update the bios to the 2103 bios from a 2001 version.

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67_PRO#download

Downloaded the ROM file. Reformated an external HDD. Put the ROM on it. Rebooted into the bios > Tools >Flash 2 Utility

Rom was the first thing on the list. Clicked it and it asked if I wanted to read it. Then it said it wasnt a EFi Bios..

Anyone know how to upgrade the bios? The way i tried didnt work.

Best way to do it is through DOS. Using this guide go ahead and make a bootable flash drive. From the Asus site for your board download the newest bios, which is 2303 (not 2103 like you listed) by expanding the BIOS tab under download section. Then expand BIOS-Utilities and download Bupdater 1.22. Put both the rom file and Bupdater utility in the same directory on the flash drive (root of the drive will be easiest). Next boot to the flash drive and flash using bupdater.

Once you land in the command prompt from DOS, type Bupdater.exe /help. The syntax is a little different than most programs but I think bupdater.exe /i"THEBIOSFILEYOUDOWNLOADED" with no space between /i and the bios file name, but /help command will give you the exact syntax.

If you have USB stick ;

-format the stick in FAT32
http://download.cnet.com/HP-USB-Disk-Storage-Format-Tool/3000-2094_4-10974082.html

-download your bios /extract ROM file in to the stick (no folder)

-flash with Asus EZ flash (ref. to manual on how to do it -it's very easy)

-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.

Note; don't mess this up or you will be sorry

Thanks guy +rep to both for the help!

I was recommended to use the Asus AI Suite Update and did a fast and ez bios flash from there.. Just needed a simply reboot and it was done and it seems to help stbalize my RAM.. not at the 2133 I wanted but at 1866.. Better than the 1333 i was stable at before. (Prime Blend of course)
