Re: Asus F1A75-M EFI Flashing

I was trying to boot to DOS to DOS using a flash drive which I wrote an image of Caldera Dr.-DOS to, but I was unable to boot to the flash device (though, I was able to boot to it from my other computers without issue). After examining the Asus F1A75-M manual regarding booting to DOS, it recommended...

Re: Asus F1A75-M EFI Flashing

After communicating with Asus, it looks like the crossflash (from OEM to retail firmware) should be possible. Asus has the BUPDATER utility to flash under DOS. However it is not obvious what some of the parameters do. The utility may be found: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/misc/utils/Bupdater_V12...

Re: Asus F1A75-M EFI Flashing

I think flashing the official Asus update for this board will work better... http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=CM1740&os=8 That has the update for the EFI already on the motherboard (version 0901). The EFI 0901 has some major shortcomings (such as no interface to set RAM timings)...

Re: Asus F1A75-M EFI Flashing

What OEM and what is the OEM model number? That way we can compare how much it differs and how the chance (if any) is you can use the retail efi firmware...
