Alright i need to flash my bios back to a previous version. I currently have an Asus Maximus Formula motherboard. Ive tried EZflash and the windows flash utility and neither one will let me flash my bios back to an OLDER version. Ive made an ms dos startup disk and copied the AFUDOS flash utlity to the disk but the asus bios files are to big for floppies! The bios 802 is 2,000kb. How do i flash my bios from a floppy when the bios files are so big?
You're not going to get it on a floppy. You could use USB flash drive, recordable CD, or create a small FAT partition on a HDD connected to the chipset-integrated IDE controller or SATA controller configured in IDE compatibility mode.
Besides, AFUDOS is not necessarily going to let you flash to an older version, either. AFUDOS has the same feature to prevent BIOS down-versioning, even when using switches to bypass it. From the discussions I've seen on ASUS Forums, you'll probably need to use a much older version of AFUDOS.
thanks for your fast answer, i tried also in the EZflash menu in the bios. There I just see the drive letters, but they where empty, I can't see the *.rom files regardeless of which medium I tried (CD,fat disk or USB Device), I don't know what I'm doing wrong....
