I need some help related to updating the BIOS on my Asus Rampage Extreme IV motherboard. Their web-site instructions make it seem very simple however it's been anything but for me.
I have the version that has the white USB port on the back next to the ROG Connect button (chain symbol - default seems to be light off)
Next to that is a CMOS CLR button (circular arrow- default seems to be light on).
I downloaded the latest file per the instructions, renamed it RE4.CAP and copied it to a USB stick that is FAT32, and has no partitions or other files on it. I plug it into the white port and push the ROG Connect button for 3 seconds and the light flashes a couple of times and then...nothing happens.
I also tried plugging the USB stick into a different port and trying to use the EZ Flash utility in the BIOS, but that utility does not recognize the RE4.CAP file so I can't do anything from there either.
Does anyone know what might be going on or if I'm doing something wrong?
*If your BIOS version is 1404 or older: Go to BIOS-Utilities to download and install the BIOS Converter utility before updating the BIOS".
Have you tried it? And is there a reason for updating the BIOS?
What's the BIOS version now?
Thanks...I'll try that. I used the renamer utility, but not the converter utility. I have version 0604, dated 11/28/2011. I have a Maingear that is having problems getting stuck at "Starting Windows" and not recognizing drives, so the customer support rep advised updating the BIOS.
