Hard time updating BIOS on DFI DK P35-t2rs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I do not have a floppy drive and I have no blank cds.

I tried to flash using a USB key but my bios does not allow USB booting. The only options are USB-FDD and USB-ZIP, neither of which worked.

I also tried EZ Flash 2 which i got from DFI's site but it says that the BIOS does not support it when I try to load the BIOS .BIN file.

Any suggestions other than "go buy a CD and boot from that" ?

all DFI Boards support USB flashing, your just doing it wrong.

Follow that instructional for making a bootable USB stick. when your finished, restart your computer, and hit F2 repeatedly until it brings up the boot menu then select USB-FDD, it then continue to boot and will bring up your bios, if at any point it seems to freeze up, do not turn off. it isnt frozen, its just that bootable USB's are very slow.

I never was able to get this to work. I just tried this guide to flash using a bootable USB stick and it didnt work. i even set all my boot devices to USB-FDD and it refused to boot from my flash drive.

i have some blank DVDs laying around, can i use one of those to make a bootable disk to flash my bios with?

With the USB Stick in enter bios then boot menu. Set order to boot hdd>cd-rom>w/e. A few lines above you will see HDD BOOT ORDER: go there and select your USB Stick on position 1. Press F10 et voila !
