Trying to update bios ECS P4M800PRO V2.0. Got file 070830 from ECS site. Using command AFUDOS 070830s.ROM I get
Boot checksums.......OK
Module checksums.....OK

Anyone know if this is correct file or if there is another file to use? Trying to update to use core2duo cpu.

The BIOS revision your trying to flash is for the ECS P4M800PRO-M V2.0, There is a very similar version of this board ECS P4M800PRO-M2 V2.0 with a completely different BIOS update. You should first verify you are not running the "M2" because if you are the correct download will be located on this page.

If the Id is wrong it`s likely you are using the wrong bios firmware for the board.
You need to double check the revision of the motherboard, as the bios can differ from revision. It most likely did you a favor there as it would of trashed the motherboard.
So have a check if there are bios firmware updates for the exact revision of the board, they may of used for example a different type of bios chip from a rev 1.0 board to a 2.0 ver board. So double check it. The revison no should be stamped on the motherboard if you look.

Thanks for the response guys.The number on the board is P4M800PRO-MV2.0. ECS website has the 070830 file as the last bios available. I even have the box it came in. Tag on box has chipset P4M800PRO&8237R+.May be time to leave it alone while it's still working.
Thanks for the help.

Hi, I had the same problem as you, I got the answer from this website http://forums.mydigitallife.info/archive/index.php/t-23...

from the command line, i ran "afudos myfile.rom /x". this bypassed the romid check and successfully updated the bios.
it appears that afudos was looking in the wrong location inside the romfile on the disk for the ROMID. afudos still reports the romid is P4M800PR after the bios update.
