Hi all,

I really need help with a BIOS update issue I have.

My motherboard is an ASUS M2A-VM HDMI and I have recently bought an Athlon II X4 630 CPU. I am trying to update the BIOS to v 5001 but every time I try using ASUS EZ Flash I get the following message:-

ROM ID in the file is incompatible with existing BIOS. The file name that is exports from the zip file is M2A-VM 5001.BIN.

I have managed to update the BIOS to v 2021(I think this is the version) but had to change the file name to just 2021.BIN. I have tried to do this with the 5001 file and it still doesn't work.

Has anyone else had this issue and if so was it resolved? I have read somewhere that EZ Flash can only cope with 8 characters and no special characters.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give
