Flashing a P5QL PRO BIOS

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey Overclock.net,

I'm trying to update the BIOS on my sig-rig but am having some problems. I can get in to EZFlash2, but once I'm there I can't navigate to the new .ROM file.

Things I've tried:
  • Putting the file on a 512MB FAT 32 USB drive (that works in Windows)
  • Reformatting the USB drive then putting the file on it
  • Emulating a floppy with the USB drive
  • Putting an old floppy drive back in... but none of my disks worked.
  • Putting the file on a DVD

I have also done the standard things such as restoring defaults in the BIOS. I think that I might need to create a boot-able USB and do this in DOS mode with AFUDOS, but I don't know how to do that.

All help is appreciated!

whats the name on the file?as it seems like you have tried the obvious things just make sure you've got the .rom and the file name should be similar to the one your replacing.is the file hidden?

you should not be having problems with ezflash at all.

The file name is P5QL-ASUS-PRO-1004.ROM. I don't think the file is hidden.... it isn't hidden when I check in Windows.

I can see the A drive in EZ Flash, I assume this is the USB drive as my optical drive is disconnected at the moment, but there are no files in this drive.

Well that really is strange I suppose you could try a different flash drive.When you navigate to the drive the rom file should show up in the window.If you open up the utility without the flash drive connected is the a drive missing?I suppose that would tell you if it's seeing the drive.
