There are numerous differences which are very hard to even find (most are internal). These BIOS flash utilities are EXTREMELY picky to prevent you from writing the wrong BIOS to a chip. UNFORTUNATELY, they also tend to prevent you from flashing to an older BIOS revision. :-/

I strongly recommend you gently mark the "angle" corner of the PLCC with a scratch awl or a marker. I seriously think that you should just mark the chip, and carefully remove it with even pressure on both corners of the chip where the openings are, being very careful not to accidentally pull one side out first, or not to accidentally catch one of the metal contacts with your puller tool!! :-/ Just as Mr. Charles said, I am re-saying!!

I will gladly hot-flash it for you in my M2N32-SLI, IF IT IS FROM THE SAME BOARD.

EDIT: I DO NOT RECOMMEND HOT-FLASHING FROM YOUR BIOS/CMOS SCREEN. YOU SHOULD ONLY FLASH FROM WITHIN WINDOWS XP USING ASUS EZ-FLASH.

Just call ASUS on Monday and get an RMA let them take your problem off your hands and into theirs. This is what warranties are for.

I beg to differ, you should always flash from within the BIOS. Never using that stupid Windows AZFLash Utility

Unless your BIOS is beta

I have read several horror stories about ASUS users who brick a mobo by using the Windows based EZ Flash tools. This is why I only use a USB thumb drive and go into the bios and use the EZ-Flash tool built into the bios to flash my bios's on all of my ASUS mobo's. The one advantage to using windows based flashing is in the event your bios flash fails you get another shot to try to flash it as windows is still running until you shut off your computer. Once you reboot " regardless if you used bios based or windows based flashing techniques " if your flash failed your board is bricked until you can get a good bios chip back on the mobo.

Why not flash from DOS? The DOS flash utilities are usually rather generic and thus more likely to be able to flash a BIOS for another board than the one you are currently using.

I tried. DOS utils are useless on these newer AM2 boards.
