do you have Asus EZFlash? If so...

Find the BIOS that you want:

http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us

Copy it to a formatted floppy.

Put Floppy in drive

Boot computer and press <ALT> + <F2> during POST (can't recall if you have to change boot sequence first... - It's been a whole 3-4 weeks)

Follow onscreen instructions.

Note: Make sure that you have a copy of your current BIOS

If this does not help, post back.

get "Asus Update" - lets you flash straight from windows - works fine for me on my A8N-SLi!
post #5 of 14
asus update is the easiesst way to go, ive used it on all of my asus mobos jsut one thing, when your using it go to there sight and manually download the new bios and put that in whatever folder you want then when yougo to update pick the option for instaling from a folder or whatever and your good to go
if you dotnt do it this way the thing wont ever connect to the internet to auto load the new bios unless your really really lucky

All the above mentioned methods work. the Asus Update is the easiest, I'm just an old dog and stick to Floppies. Hmmmm... time for me to learn a new trick.

Anyhoo... if you are having difficulties with the Asus Update, you could borrow a floppy disk and hook it up just to re-flash. You wouldn't have to mount it. Simply have it sitting outside the case and have power and interface connected.

If you are familiar with the DOS enviornment there is a third option, AFUDOS utility - but that also requires a floppy

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

i could never get any of the asus ezflash or update stuff installed on my system and/or working right. Tried a million times to get it to work to no avail. Not to hijack this thread but has anyone else had problems with it on the P5w?
