post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
ok so i have a motherboard ( ASUS M4A88TD-M EVO/USB 3) bios ver. 1801 and i googled and saw a new version 2301! but guess what? there's another motherboard called ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB 3 and i didnt noticed its a different motherboard!!!

my pc boots normal and i havent had issues! but am i gonna be fine?i just dont know why the asus bios updater let me install a bios from a different motherboard!!!and now when i try to go back to the original bios it says "the model of the bios image does not match".i cant go back to my original bios ver!

do you think im gonna have issues later?should i find a way to just install the previous bios i had?

I've never been in this situation, but seeing as your board is so closely related to the board that the BIOS was intended for, I can't see you running into problems here. Especially seeing that you haven't had issues yet.

My recommendation would be to continue using your PC as normal for the time being, but keep an eye on ASUS's website for future BIOS updates for your board, and update when one is available.

Someone with more experience with BIOSes might want to weigh in here though.

I'd say it would be a similar bios anyway, i wouldn't worry about it.
If a bios fails the PC usually won't run on again, so it worked.

Why don't you just re-flash with the correct BIOS? It's probably not a big deal - you can use any EVGA X79 BIOS on any of the EVGA X79 motherboards without issue so...You should be fine regardless.

Nice, I wanted to try the same but then I read your post? Have you tried the mmtool and change something randomly in the bios for example the id?

Update: The mmtool let you replace or extract pci modules. I didn't find a way to compare bios or replace a string? But I wanted to flash the V version to my M mainboard and it gives me incompatible bios version? How did it work with your mainboard? Did you use Ez flash option in bios? Lucky guy?

Yes, I use mmtool to update my sata drivers and update the pci module in the bios file. I did it with my bios 1801 and updated amd ahci sata driver version 3.0.5 to 3.1.0. It's worth the trouble. Read about it here: http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/board208-specials/board281-bios-bios-modding/17000-ahci-raid-rom-modules-for-bios-modding-already-extracted/. How do you manual update if from asus update? Did you update it from dos? In a terminal? I only use ez-flash? I want to use also the v bios because it seems to be newer and I got some problems with my ram.
