Red face Noobish question (mobo Bios flashing)

Hi guys, i have a small question, i have this motherboard, >> Asus P5N-E SLI 650i i am wanting to flash the bios to the latest version using a floppy disc, how would i do this? ... with my older P5B i would just use a program called asus update that and i could flash the biso through windows, have never flashed with a floppy before.


Would i just copy the bios file onto a floppy and select boot from floppy?

Thanks.

Default Re: Noobish question (mobo Bios flashing)

the motherboard's manual should tell you how.....with my Asus P5B-Deluxe I just have to put the new bios on my USB drive, reboot and goto the bios flashing utility (built into mobo) and pick the new bios......

EDIT: Yup, just checked and that mobo has it too. Asus EZ Flash 2 it's called. Here's the manual if you don't have it. Page 47 is what you're looking for. http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/..._p5n-e_sli.zip
