Image to flash full P32 bios to XFX 680i LT

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Since the XFX flash utilities won't allow you to do this, I created a bootable CD that allows you to flash the full 680i P32 bios to this board. It now thinks it is a 680i and not a 680i LT. This was the key to any form of OC for me.

The ISO can be found here

Awesome, great.

Can this be done with the MSI P6N-SLI-FI to be flashed to be the P5N-SLI-Platinum>

These are XFX bioses, so I have never tried it on anything other than an XFX. That said, it's a reference board and the bios is therefore is likely to work on other reference boards. Disclaimers apply of course...

Tried this method among others for the last month or so without success. When I tried this method I get "device driver not found: BANANA" the drive is a Samsung sata. Any ideas? Thanks

Yes, because the bootable CD is a Dos 6.2 image with an IDE CD driver....
