Default Need help to flash older BIOS on ASUS P5B-E

I updated the BIOS on my ASUS P5B-E and would like to flash it back to the old BIOS. But the program, AsusUpdate, told me to use the DOS version. So I downloaded the DOS version AFUDOS v232 and tried it but it said the BIOS was an older version too and wouldn't flash it to the old version. Does anyone know a way to flash an older version of the BIOS than what's installed on the motherboard?

The reason I want to go back to the old version is the CPU Temp reads very different on the new version and I think the old version was closer to what CoreTemp shows.

Thanks for any help.

I downgraded the bios on my motherboard using the newest awdflash. Copy it onto e.g. USB stick, boot from it and type and in the DOS type awdflash /f "bios name"

Thanks for the info. But after I looked into it I found out that awdflash is only for an Award BIOS and my motherboard has an AMI BIOS.

Thanks for the info but I'm affraid to try that version since the ASUS Website has this warning in RED for the BIOS I want to downgrade to.

**Please update AsusUpdate to V7.09.02 or later prior making this update.**
