ExpressGate on an Asus M3N72 Mobo.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Can anyone on here advise how to go about upgrading ExpressGate on an Asus M3N72 Mobo please? The OS appears to be either missing or corrupted and I'm afraid I've no idea how to go about remedying this. Checked the downloads page - found Source Code but not convinced that's what is required.
Thank you in advance for any help on this.
Best Regards.

I haven't played with that in a while. But if I recall correctly, ExpressGate does not reside in the BIOS. It actually sits on a partition on your hard drive. So if you haven't actually installed it, then it definitely will not be there.
Yeah, I just checked out the source code on the asus site. Notice how it is over 700MB? That's not going in your bios anywhere. It needs to be installed on a partition. Then you'll be able to boot to it directly from the bios. I'm not sure why they provide source code and not an image though...

Hi Wedge,
Thank you for your reply. You're right there's no way over 700MB will fit onto a BIOS. Any idea's how to go about installing onto a partition please? Failing that from what's been read on various forums it's not worth the hassle anyway but it'd be interesting to see it up and running.
Best Regards.
