I have moved the bios that I downloaded to a USB thumbdrive and when I attempt to update from the BIOS page, it tells me that it isn't a usable bios version.
Thinking maybe I messed up the download, I went to ASUS Japan and downloaded the BIOS update for the new Broadwell chips and got the same result. I thought maybe I needed to change the name of the file to the short version X99EWS.CAP and tired that as well. Still no joy.
I've made sure that I have the right version of the motherboard, checking the board and box and it is not the USB 3.1 version.
I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.
just rename bios file from to X99-E-WS-ASUS-3101 to X99EWS.CAP and stick that onto your root device(C:),and that should be it?, get the Globle download? your problems could be you've renamed it with "X99EWS.CAP.CAP" worth a look? ignore the bupdater unless you using Flashback
i had problems with using Bios Flashback, so i just used UEFI to install the update(3004), hence sticking X99EWS.CAP in my root directory
hope that helps, two more things when bios is flashed remove battery for a few minuets(personal preference), have fun
IMPORTANT: bios updates turn off your intel RAID, either disconnect RAID drives or have a backup of RAID, preferably both!
if you have any bios profile saves back them up to USBEdited by baconinabun - 6/8/16 at 12:05am
