Updating bios asus ez flash
Can anyone explain how to prepare your bios folder for flashing.
I've tried using the usb flash,but it ends with 'this is not a proper bios folder'.
Remember all that "Create a DOS boot CD, run the flasher" rubbish? The Asus EZ-Flash system lets you flash directly from a USB stick (or, possibly, other media - but as the 1215N only has a USB port, it's the one we're using).
The trick is that if you try it, it probably won't work. EZ-Flash seems to require a hideous FAT16 filesystem to function.
Skill DDR4 -3400 DRAMNVidia GTX 9800TI GPUSamsung 840 Pro 256 SSDDownloaded latest Asus BIOS update, extracted file to blank/formatted USB flash drive. UEFI recognized USB flash drive present, went to Tool, EZ Flash, selected drive option. Can someone, PLEASE assist me in solving this problem?I could not find this setting anywhere in my M2N68-AM Plus v0210 BIOS.After some further research I figured that I should perhaps upgrade my BIOS, so I searched and managed to download the latest version (v1804) as a ROM file.If this is enough for you to succeed, awesome, otherwise read on... Delete the partitions, create a new one (or just use the RAW partition - this works too), and then create a "FAT" filesystem. Copy the ROM from the Asus download site to the USB key as "1215N. After rebooting, in the BIOS, press Alt-F2 repeatedly.Creating a FAT16 filesystem is relatively easy under Windows. The system should recognize the USB key and flash the BIOS, opening up your full amount of RAM! However, it might be worth trying if you're doing something RAM-heavy and CPU-light...
Asus Update is for 32-bit only, AFUDOS doesn't appear to work on my Windows 7 64-bit system (I think it's supposed to run in DOS or something - but that just sounds confusing since I know nothing about DOS). Remember to use a flash drive that is formatted FAT/FAT32 and also rename the file to a short file name such as 1804. ROM file from the file the BIOS downloads from, EZ-Flash does not support ZIP files. (At least for some older BIOS versions.) You must have a FAT/FAT32 (not ex FAT) filesystem.
