I've been waiting on a new processor for two weeks now and figured that when I got it, updating my BIOS wouldn't be that difficult.
My MB is an Asus M2n-sli Deluxe and Asus' site lets me download the latest bios, but other than a version number, there's no further instructions. So the file is a .bat file, which I burned to disk and tried to boot off of, but to no avail.
I've been searching for the last two hours, but can't find anything on how to do this. I just have the file sitting there on my desktop, with no knowledge of how to run it.
There was a flash utility program also available, which I downloaded and it didn't seem to do anything.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
(I'm trying to update to BIOS version 5001)
Thanks,
Mike

Asus "ez flash 2" windows utility should work. Try checking your bios for any boot block or virus protection settings and disable them. Then disable windows firewall temporarily while you flash.
