Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 195

post #1941 of 3000
Yeah, I saw where the ASUS rep posting at [H] said the P67 update would follow the Z68 release, with the next BIOS version for us.

(I found the post....)

I am hoping that this next BIOS ver. 17xx (which IIRC he said in another post would be within a few weeks hopefully) will be the one that solves most if not all of the common complaints folks are running into. (My new build is like 95% done, and I figure I'll hold out and until then and get lucky with only doing the one BIOS flash) HA !

i do it all the time, its fine.

unless you are the unluckeyest person in the world and get a BSOD/full lockup during the flash itself, nothing can really go wrong...

just make sure you reset everything to default in the bios before flashing in windows, and again right after, and do a full shutdown and boot to OS after each..

its a bit annoying to see all the oprom messages during POST, but its safer...

Can't you use the utility inside bios? EZ flash or what it was called...

Sounds like you're using the update software bundled with AI Suite. IIRC you can tell it where to get the file from, so you would download the file from the first page of this thread, put it on your desktop and point the software to that file. I do recommend just getting another USB stick and doing it that way though, while the odds are slim that you will brick your computer, it's a hassle you don't want to go through.

you don't need a stick, u can flash from your hard drive. the bios utility has full NTFS support. Some people have claimed flashing from NTFS can cause errors, IMO its nonsense. NTFS is a journaled file system, its not possible withought a corrupted file to start with.

the windows update program is part of AI2 suite, youll need at least the suite on the CD that came with your board, or download the newest from Asus. It sounds like you might have installed an old stand alone version, or the original AI1 suite that doesn't support P67 by accident.

youll need the actual AI2 suite installed to access the flash program. You don't have to install all the components though, just the ones you want. Its accessed through the suite executable, not as an individual utility.

if u flash from bios, youll need to rename the file, the default is .rom which is only for the windows program. i believe .bin is for the bios flasher.

The BIOS only reads .ROM.

... updated to Bios 1702 ... not using a mega terabite HDD, or any HDD for that matter, but am getting improved readspeeds on my 2 Crucial SSD's in RAID0, and that's even without TRIM (not supported), but just the goodold garbage collection at work, never seen it go 10 x above 700Mb/s before, so that's MEGA
