Oops sorry, only read your last two posts and missed the first. I'll let SimpleTech continue to help you as he very likely knows better what he's doing than I do. GL getting it sorted.

This might seem like a silly question, but have you booted with your USB stick in that contains a different BIOS and pressed F5 (sets default BIOS options)? The deluxe is supposed to have a "CrashFree" backup feature that restores corrupted/damaged BIOS files when one is present and the device fails to boot.

I would make sure that ONLY the USB stick is plugged in (or dvd/cd) aside from your mouse/keyboard. The blinking cursor could also be that it reset your boot priorities (if you can get into your BIOS) which would make it point to a random device. Make sure that your OS drive is #1.

Good luck!

Thanks for the input. Hopefully this doesn't come off as me being a dick because that's not my intentions. However, in my posts on the previous page i stated i flashed the bios via the ai suite in windows, and then tried to revert back to an old bios via the USB after it wouldn't boot. So the USB did contain a different version bios (the version that was shipped with my board cd that i downloaded from asus's website - v.1606). I also stated i already tried looking at the boot priorities to see if it switched them around. I was reading on the web that the AE error seems to sometimes switch the boot priorities around. They didn't change. So i even manually tried to boot from my windows installation HD from the BIOS via the boot manager and it still acted the same way as i described. In this case, a blank black screen with an underscore blinking cursor about 5 or so lines from the top of my screen. It seems to act this way no matter how i try to boot the system, whether it's USB or my HD.

I wasn't aware of the crash free feature. That's nice. However the AI suite when flashing the new bios told me it was successful, and if it was corrupted it probably would of already restored it right? So i'm assuming the bios is not corrupted, but something is preventing it from booting the system. I don't know.

So like i said, I hope i don't sound like a dick but i did try those options already. I appreciate the quick feedback I'm recieving if anyone has another other ideas on what to do I'd appreciate input. I don't know if ASUS customer support is open tomorrow, but I'm going to call them. Even though i know they probably won't help me much. I've heard their support is one of the worst of any company out there.

This sucks

You're not being a jerk as it is understandable when 90% of today's readers just skim through a post/article and formulate an answer that may or may not be based on what the actual question is. In my defense however, I did not see that you had put in the bit about boot order in your OP, so that is either an edit I missed while tabbed out eating my dinner, or a good ol' case of PEBKAC on my part. (FYI - the Q CODE: AE refers to legacy boot error, which usually means you have something wrong with your boot order.)

I had seen that you have put in media with a BIOS ROM on it, but you did not mention if A) You are able to actually get into the BIOS still or B) Had hit F5 to restore default values; this is why I mentioned putting in the USB/DVD/CD and doing so. I would definitely contact ASUS, but you will need to be persistent. They have either 100% AMAZING service, or they have 100% complete crap service - it all depends on who you get.

All that being said, if this were my board (we have the same model) I would still investigate not only boot order, but also to make sure that it did not revert you to IDE/AHCI, causing an issue. AHCI is default, but for folks that don't feel like installing a fresh copy of windows, and have had a mechanical HDD, IDE is default.

Sorry to hear I was unable to help, but I do wish you good luck in resolving your problem.

Yes I am able to get into bios, and yes i had already restored defaults.

I've already checked the boot order and I keep checking it, and i've even forced the boot order a few times to my windows install regardless the order I had them in. Right now order is DVD/windows HD/USB/blank HD.

The IDE point is good to bring up I hadn't thought of that. Embarrassing to say, but I actually can't remember what i installed my system as whether being IDE or AHCI. I'm about 90% sure it was IDE. It was set to AHCI. So that probably means I will have to reinstall windows right? Because I've heard you can't switch the setup after it's been installed or else you will mess things up and have to install a fresh copy. Although if the drivers for IDE/AHCI is already installed on the device switching back to the setting that it was set to, in my case probably IDE, it should boot right? Neither setting would boot.

I was able to boot into free dos mode via the asus original CD. Once there i switched to my USB device and was finally able to boot from the usb into the bios dos updater tool. Once there i navigated to my old rom file and tried to install it.

As said here a few posts back...

I cannot revert back because the bios will not allow you to roll back to an older bios now! See the screenshot i took of what it looks like when you try to do it. If you take a second to look to the top left of the screen you will see what bios it currently recognizes, which is the 2001 i installed. So it clearly knows that 2001 is there and running so that would leave me to believe that it definitely isn't corrupted or wasn't corrupted during my flashing process last night.

A thought to maybe trying to install windows 7 on my second HD and trying to boot from that install to see what happens? Or does anyone think that's just a waste of time.

I called ASUS support, after being hung up on 3 times, I finally got what appeared to be someone on the other end. He was speaking fast and repeating himself twice saying there are currently no technicians around (i think he said call back in a few hours). When I said hello ... hello ... the line was quite, but the line was still connected. It was like they were on the other end listening to me, but not responding!?

make sure your sata devices are set to hotplug, there is some weirdness in the new bios for SSDs.

I had the line as well on 1st boot after update, i sat there and waited for 5 mins or so, then it booted normally. All reboots have been fine since.

I didnt check the q-code though when it happened.
post #2457 of 3000
I don't think the BIOS update bricked your board. If the board were bricked, you wouldn't get into the EUFI, or run any type of utility like the DOS BIOS updater.

The blinking curser/black screen I would take an educated guess is the point where the EUFI hands control of the system to the OS (actually Win7's bootloader). I tend to believe that the problem does in fact reside with something that happened in either the bootloader (BCD) files (my first guess), or the HDD, or the code in the EUFI that makes this handoff (pointing to an incorrect BCD location). You haven't gotten a "No Operating system" error, which is why I believe this.

There is a very good chance that your BCD files are actually on the spinner, and not your SSD if both drives were attached to the system during your windows install. I seen some crazy things happen with windows... Try setting your spinner as the first boot device. I have actually seen this correct the issue you are experiencing on other systems.

You can also try to repair your windows 7 installation by booting to the install DVD. selecting a BCD repair or an OS repair from the utilities on the disk.

I don't think this is the problem/or the answer but I'll throw it out there anyway;

Another alternative might be to try a reinstall BIOS 2001 from the DOS utility, just in case something did in fact mess up during the install. EUFI is software driven, so it is not impossible for one small piece of code to have gotten corrupt, and the EUFI still seem to operate correctly.

They are not on hotplug at least the last time i checked they weren't. I'll double check.
I don't have SSD yet unfortunately.

I reinstalled the 2001 bios via the USB method and bupdater as suggested.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1053401/pc/biosUpdate.jpg

Restarted and same problem - AE error.
Tried the windows CD repair process, restarted and same problem - AE error.

Now I am noticing something that might seem odd during boot when it shows my hard drives on screen. On the far right it says unconfigured for both of them. Is that a problem? I don't ever remember seeing those words there.

I feel like I've tried everything (at least that I know to do). This is not good

Ok so sorry for multiple posts on this issue, but you guys seem very helpful, and maybe this will help someone else with the same issue some day.

I was able to get ahold of an asus support guy and we discussed some options. After telling him everything I've done he said I pretty much did everything possible to recover the system. He also believes the board itself is fine because I'm able to get into the bios utility to modify settings.

The only suggestions he was able to give me based on what I had already done through everyone's help here was to switch the hard drive ports and try a boot. If that didn't work he suggests just a clean install of windows because he thinks it somehow was corrupted.

As an FYI he also said they recommend all consumers update their bios via the USB method with the bupdater instead of the AI suite or doing it any other way.

Where are you seeing the Unconfigured tag? On the initial AMI BIOS screen that flashes up when you first power on? This tends to coroborate that the HDD/SATA controller may not be in the right mode (IDE, ACHI, RAID). Your not seeing the Intel RAID ROM are you? 'cause you shouldn't.
