I have an Asus M5A97 mobo. I flashed to the newest 1102 bios through EZflash and it bricked my BIOS. I ordered a replacement chip on eBay and I received one for a M5A97 EVO board. The EVO chip will let me boot with memOK while the original will not POST at all nor reach the BIOS screen. I tried reflashing with EZflash and because the one is EVO and I'm flashing the nonEVO BIOS it fails. I got to the BIOS, pulled my EVO chip and put the original bricked chip back in and it verifies that the versions match but then it throws an error at me stating that there is not boot information included in the file. I'm guessing it is checking my bricked chip for something that apparently isn't there, hence why it’s bricked. I tried BUPDATER from DOS with both chips to no success. I also tried AMIFLASH which doesn’t work with the BIOS version. I tried AFUDOS also and it gave me another error that the BIOS does not support afu. I’m stuck ordering another chip because I need my computer back, but I do not wanna have a couple of extra worthless chips lying around. Does anyone know of something that will allow me to flash any BIOS to any MOBO?
