It was very important to read the following before attempting a BIOS flash. You *might* have bricked your board if you did it the wrong way:
Quote:
P67/Z68 32** Ivy Bridge BIOS Update procedure
To update to UEFI build 3202:

Ensure system is 100% stable before flashing! Do not perform this update on an overclocked system, set defaults and ensure 100% stability before commencing.


1) Flash from EZ Flash 2 (this is important, do not use any other method of flashing!) using a FAT32 formatted USB drive. Make sure you flash from EZ Flash 2 only and NOT Windows!


2) You will need to let the system flash twice. Flash the first time, when the flash completes follow the onscreen prompt to reboot.


3) Second flash will commence when the board re-BOOTs, should find the file automatically and flash it (this flash wil update the ME fw while the first flash updates UEFI).


4) After the second flash completes, follow the onscreen prompts, power down the system at mains (AC) and clear CMOS (Clear RTC) for 5 seconds before using the system again.

this looks to be the procedure for any 32xx series bios flash .

We have come to the conclusion that the A0 code is normal, dont worry about it. Not sure about the ez menu though.

I just got the Asus Maximus IV Extreme. I hooked everything up and made sure all the connections are tight and there is nothing lose. I turn the computer on and there is no video, and the debug display show "2E" with according to the manual is "memory initialization". This is the memory that I have http://gskill.com/products.php?index=355. I called tech support and they told me that I needed new ram that was on the QVL. as seen on the gskill website, my RAM should work. Any help is appreciated.

Okay, the guy over the phone said to swap my RAM for one in the QVL vendor list. Should I do this? And which one should I get?

The tech support guy told me the same thing. I just ordered more ram from the QVL and it should be here tomorrow. I was just reading the manual there is a "MemOK" feature on the board. It is the "go button" hit that button before post and see what happens. I would guess, turn it on and hit that button as fast as possible. I am going to test that when I get home. I will keep everyone posted.
