Asus Maximus VI Hero won't boot, error code's 55 and A2 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
The board even automatically adjusted the voltage down to 1.35V, something my previous P7P55D-E Pro did not. So far I'm stable in a few minutes of Aida64 and a few hours of installing programs @ 1600Mhz and CL9 1T CR. Everything's looking good! Well, except for Haswell hitting 72C @ stock settings, lol!

did you try the MEM OK function on the board?

I saw that feature while watching one of the review vids. Cool. Couple questions, can I just put the .CAP file directly on the root of the usb stick or does the stick have to be a bootable usb? Also, if the .CAP on the root of the stick is good enough, what format should the usb stick be? I'm going to be installing my new CPU and mobo in a couple days and I would like to have any fail-safes in place before I run into any problems.

The USB needs to be FAT32 formatted, and does not have to be bootable. All you have to do is rename the .CAB file... You will have to check on the ROG website what it should be named. And good idea having failsafes. You could also load all the BIOS files together on a USB without renaming the files, and then just update it from within the BIOS using the update utility.

Awesome. Thanks for the heads up.
