VMWare is a company that has a large catalog of products. Can you please clarify what product you installed and what version of that product you installed

I dont think its a VMware problem. It installed right just showed me this error
so i enabled the intel virtualization on my BIOS saved and reboot and computer never rebooted... or at least i dont see it...

Okay. That's a little strange. Try using Asus's Flashback utility to update your firmware from a USB stick. This will also reset the settings. You can find out how to do this in your motherboard manual

Unfortunately my motherboard doesnt have this utility ... :(

All Asus motherboards have either CrashFree BIOS or Flashback, yours should at least have CrashFree.

Yes indeed it has crashfree utility i downloaded latest bios update from here

I extracted the ROM file ( Version 3608 ) to my formatted USB key, plugged it on my computer and nothing happens at all , tried to boot on my Windows 7 / UBCD (ultimate boot cd) nothing works, i tried also to unplug both of my hard ( one is SSD ) one at a time and both still no video input , i'm desperate now lol

Well ***, if crashfree failed you may have to call Asus

Did you try just getting back into Bios and resetting defaults, Start, then spam press DEL key, Then F5 and save and reboot? And the safest way to flash Asus Bios is with EZ flash 2, reached through the tools section of your Bios. That's where board will read the bios Rom. Be sure it's the only thing on the stick that's fat32 formatted and rename to a max 8 char name. P867.ROM. Stick needs to be inserted before you start computer and hit DEL key. Go to tools and wait for ROM to appear may take a min.

i can not get into the BIOS i get no video input message so i dont see anything on my screen and yeah for the EZ flash i did rename the .ROM to a fat 32 formatted name but still no video input so it doesnt solve my problem unfortunately :(
