I have just updated my BIOS (or tried to-I think I managed it in the end...) with the Asus Update tool, for a planned upgrade to an AMD Phenom 9850 quad core. It is supposed to work in windows. There are however a few things you need to know if you do this.
1. Dig out the floppy drive from the bottom of the box of unused computer parts and connect it to your computer.
2. All ways save your current BIOS to floppy in case things go Pete Tong (wrong).
3. Asus Update didnt work as intended :evil: . I tried to do a quick update from the internet, but due to Asus's site being utter garbage I had to download the BIOS from Softpedia (of all places!!! :roll: ) and "update from file."
4. When your computer re-starts, switch off and unplug all other drives apart from your Boot drive otherwise you will get this lovely little message on a BLACK screen "Disk boot faiure, insert system disk and press enter." 8O
Luckily I managed to work out that all my other flash cards and HDD's were getting in the way of a boot, I switched off and un-plugged the lot apart from the boot drive, floppy (still wasnt sure!! :roll: ) drive, and DVD drive. Switched back on, and all was normal (with the computer, not me. I'm still getting therapy from flashing my BIOS!!)
Hope this helps, if not I know a good head doctor!!
P.S. I'm not mad, but my other personality is a bit of a psycho!! :lol: :? :lol: :twisted: :lol: :roll: :evil:
