Flashing BIOS

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I've done this before, Using the ASUS my Logo2 software and gave myself a custom splash screen. I went with the easy route and just got the backup ROm (bios file), and everything works fine, except that this is the very first BIOS version for my M3NHT-D board and I've found out that this is the reason for my cold boot issues =[.

So I went to The ASUS site and downloaded the Newest version. Well the thing is that it comes in a .BIN format. ASUS my logo doesn't accept anything but .ROM. any ideas?

PS
BIN is the one that's used for Easy flash right? and I don't really want to lose my logo
(which I do not know how to use yet)

I figured it out!

.Bin works for flashing the BIOS. Got the latest version from ASUS and extracted it to my flash drive. I went in the bios and undid my OC and then did an EZ flash. it was quite easy, although finding my thumb-drive wasn't so obvious but i had 3 options

Afterwards, the reboot, everything spun up at max speeds and stayed, which freaked me out cuz it did it for a whole minute until i hit the reset button. It actually went to post pretty quick and when i was in window's 7 window's for the first time recognized my 720 chip!

Once in windows I extracted the ROM from within ASUS update app and then used MyLogo. The reflash through windows was MUCH faster than the first time. In conclusion (feels like one of those High school assignments lol), my BIOS updated and got my custom splash screen back and tomorrow i shall see if i get cold start up probs

PS i was able to find all the info that gave me the courage into doing the update on the ASUS site and manual (read them people!)
who'd knew..
