Only guide I found on the asus web was to use a Windows Tool to update the bios. I'm not really much into updating bios via. windows.
There are two differents method:
1) We list two programs that will think to fix your USB key to make it bootable.

* MakeBootable (no installation required)
* HP Drive Key Boot

Both software are free. Once attached to your USB key will not have to do is set up as an option in the BIOS boot the USB device as primary instead of the HDD (set as primary by default).

Reboot the PC with the USB stick inserted and there goes your bootable USB key will take office!


2) Go to www.bootdisk.com and download the following files:

* The image file of Dos 6.22 (622-514.exe)
* Xp quick boot diskette (xpquick.zip)

Retrieve the latest version of the address WinImage www.winimage.com, then install and start it and open the file that we downloaded earlier by www.bootdisk.com (622-514.exe)

Save the exe file as an image file (*. ima).

The procedure is not finished: go above the *. ima with your mouse and select Extract, selecting as the destination directory anywhere on your desktop.

All that remains is the final step! Prepare ...

Download the utility "Format Utility for HP Drive Key or DiskOnKey USB Device", click on "Create DOS Startup Disk", choose the directory where you extracted the contents of the image file and format the USB stick. Final: with a program like WinRar extract the files contained within the file xpquick.zip and move this files inside the root of the USB stick.

------------
I used this tool and my usb pen drive worked perfectly for update the latest bios of our MB. If u need other tool just advise me! Rep me please

Jesus why cant this just be simple!

I've downloaded every single "USB BOOT" program in the universe, yet always to find a new problem! I'm always missing some images, or dos files, or just any files! There has always gotta be some speed bump that drags me down and makes me wanna swallow my usb stick, never to see it again!

I just don't get it, we can fly to out of space, but updating bios has to be a trouble.. Doesn't make any sens at all.. instead I just fill up my drive with trash files and trash programs.

- Edit

It has been flashed, was so much easier than I expected..

Actually, I use a much different approach. I still copy the bios update file to my usbkey, but I don't make it bootable. I just pop it into a USB port, reboot, jump into BIOS and select "Asus EZ Flash 2" under the "Tools" section and then i TAB over to the system drives area, select the USB Key Drive, TAB over to the files that are on it, select the BIOS Update file and hit Enter.

It's really simple and you dont have to do all of that other junk.

Realistically in IBT your only stressing half of your memory.

Here's my "official" stability posting with Linx 5200MB 20 passes and hyperpi 32M x 8 stable. I also posted a more comprehensive BIOS template to show all of my settings, and how sometimes setting a value in the BIOS does not result in that same value being reported. I'm really starting to like this board now that I've got all of the power saving features figured out

Thanks for your support master, i used non-HT. For the rest, can you try to explain in easy english? Im italian and my english is not excellent. Can you simple write the numbers that i must try to use?

Each system is very different. Each person must find out what their system needs. Start by raising BCLK 5-10 at a time and testing until you get errors.

Yeah, I noticed that too actually. Ever since I started messing with my RAM timings it seemed to do that. I'll loosen up the timings a bit and try it again and see if that's why it does that.

My english is horrible, can you just simple the setting? I mean for example:
Try BCLK= from100 to 150 or same. Excuse me but i have some difficolt if i dont see the settings on the video.

necessario per iniziare aumentando la velocitÃ* cinque-dieci bclk in un momento, prove fino ad arrivare errori. Una volta cominciato ottenere errori, poi sollevare delle tensioni.
