ASUS M2N32 WS Professional - BIOS upgrade
I should have listened to my own advice yesterday and just gone out the backyard to dig a hole and then drop myself into it.
First a Vista installation fails....driver corruption...
Then being very brave (well i thought i was!!!) i decided it was about time to upgrade my BIOS on my desktop.
I look through the ASUS website and find version 1401 which is the newest release and of course the manual.
So armed with this i head off into re-boot-land to locate EzyFlash 2 under the BIOS.
Now, first off, many have told me to upgrade my BIOS if i want to run BitLocker or if i wanted to install Windows 2008 but i was rather nervous about touching the BIOS..but people kept telling me nonsense..they've never had problems with it.
Thinking its just myself i locate the 1401.bin file on my USB stick from the BIOS flash utility - it scans the file and confirms it's the right version..then a message appears not to shut down because it's doing a BIOS flash..i can live with that...i look at the small status bar...pls pls pls..work!!!!
"BIOS Flash completed, press any key to restart"
NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man, this is just NOT my week...my PC restarts, i see a lil' blue flashing light..and then the fans start, all 5 of them..and then...
n o t h i n g . . . . .
I can hear the fans still working...but n o t h i n g happens....n o t h i n g at all..it just sits there, gloating, snickering "I MADE YOU DO IT!!!! HA!!!! SUCKER!!!!"...
i read through the manual again...and nothing else has to be done...wtf?!?!?! i now have a very very pretty footrest in the shape of a CoolerMaster 810 Stacker under my desk..at least till i figure out how to get another BIOS onto it...
