I have just updated my BIOS to the latest version from ASUS website using EZ Flash 2. The computer is running ok but the boot time has increased after this update. Since I had no issues with the old BIOS version, I would like to revert to it. Unfortunately EZ Flash keeps telling me that the version is older then the current one and denies update (or downgrade so to say).
Is there any posibility to revert to the older BIOS?
I have tried to find anything on the web and even on ASUS forums but unfortunately there was nothing.
I have seen that one but on the other hand I've seen a lot of people having problems after flashing with AFUDOS. Aparently the safest way to flash is with the built in flash utility (Alt + F2 and so on) but this one won't let you downgrade.
Related to your question. It is not a lot but it "looks" strange. Let me explain.
When I power up my PC:
1. Express Gate shows up with 3 sec. timer
2. Full logo shows up for 2sec.
3. Screen goes black and shows in the upper left corner a flashing cursor for 2-3 sec. which then jumps aproximate 2-3 lines below and stays there for 1 sec.
4. Screen goes completely dark for 2 sec. and Windows 7 logo shows up and PC boots up normaly after this step
