Updating bios using asus ez flash 2
I thought it may be a good idea for future reference to use my favourable Google status to tell the world about my experiences flashing the BIOS on my Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard. In an effort to make the computer as up to date as possible, I decided to upgrade the BIOS. Asus has a unique feature on their boards that will let you flash directly from floppy or cd, without booting into dos first. Having no access to my floppy drive because of the buggy beta bios, I decided to use the CD that came with the motherboard and flash the BIOS version that's on it. Flashing went as planned (I'ld even say it went surprisingly well), but unfortunately the machine would not boot, not beep, not do anything...
Note: this post is a bit long and windy, but there's an hilarious tech support reply in the end... Using Asus (ugly-as-sin) Windows based flash utility, I upgraded to the latest non-beta BIOS. That would be the safest, surest working option, right? I thought something must have gone wrong with the flashing, but some googling learned me the BIOS on the CD must have been too old for my processor, and instead of running the processor at a low speed, Asus decided it was best to just shut down to prevent damage.
