ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 485

post #4841 of 5773
Any SABERTOOTH Z170 S owners in here? Do you get the SupremeFX features? I don't see Supreme FX mentioned anywhere, but I noticed that the Realtek driver is also 400MB?!

At this point it would be wise to detail how you are formatting the drives and the port used, as well.

The manual mentions something about being able to flash using the bios that is on the provided ASUS DVD, for systems that crashed due to failed bios update.
Can normal flashing of bios from ASUS DVD be done (albeit the bios ver on the DVD is old)?

It never worked during the Sandy Bridge era when it was needed most. Asus released a BIOS back then that bricked several SB boards. This was just before Raja's "watch". I got an EPROM programmer after that...Your best BIOS recovery insurance.

yes this works fine on z170 and x99. the bios recovery module will request the dvd, HDD or USB. I recently used an HDD to restore a flash to Bios 1 on my M8E.

i format the sticks by right clicking and then chouse format, then fat32, allocation unit size 4096, then untick quick format, but have tried both ways, tried all usb ports on my ranger, including the ones on front panel, once i set bios back to default, i turn pc off, then clear cmos, then turn pc back on, then go back into bios and chouce tools, ezy flash, then chouse the bios file that it sees, then get the same error over and over again "selected file is not a proper bios" anything wrong there ?

These are my 3 usb sticks i have, maybe someone can suggest a usb stick for me to try that works 100% for them, maybe all mine are not correct, to big a size for instance.

Thanks for the good info. I was just wondering if there was a method for Daytraders to try using the bios on the ASUS DVD. And if that fails too, then it's not his usb sticks or bios update method but could be something wrong with his current bios or bios chip.

Did you try with seemingly bricked or working boards? Two completely different scenarios.

don;t usually respond to blocked users, but in the spirit of helping daytrader... yes, both. A completely bricked M8E/6700K bios1 (and I bricked it with a corrupted non-K unlock modified bios) actually had to pull the bios chips and switch them around.. bricked so bad, the bios select switch would not work. Fully recovered using an HDD bios file. Just pointed it to the HDD with 0801beta. And had a power interrupt during initial flash of this R5E-10 with 0801beta... flashback would not work, the bios recovery module worked fine and asks for the DVD (USB with this board) a USB or to locate the bios file on your HDD. HAnds on current experience.
