Hello All!! While updating the BIOS on an Intel Motherboard (DX48BT2), I have encountered a problem where it will not apply the new BIOS, “Flash Update failed!” Does anyone know what Technical Information (0x8000000000000007, 1301) error codes mean? I have Googled these codes with a few finds, but no solutions. I have put the motherboard into recovery mode and put the .bio file on CDs and Flash Drives. The computer will see the disc or drive and boot, but then stops with the error. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
What bios do you currently have? BTX3810J.86A.1521.2008.0318.1426
What bios are you trying to upgrade to? Numerous, but after reading that I shouldn't jump too many version, I am working on applying: BTX3810J.86A.1554.2008.0501.1628
From where did you acquire the .bio file? Internet file share
What is your processor model number? It is an Extreme processor, I don't remember the exact processor model. I could find out the specific processor if that is needed.
I have attached the latest BIOS (2006).
It is best if you use the BIOS Recovery process. For information on the BIOS Recovery process, consult Intel Desktop Boards Recovery BIOS Update Instructions.
To help you better, here are my step-by-step instructions for BIOS Recovery:
Hope this helps,
Something for you to try: Use F2 at power on (BIOS Splash screen) to get into BIOS Setup. Then, use F9 (followed by Y) to reset the BIOS configuration and F10 (followed by Y) to save this BIOS configuration and exit. If the issue is with the flash component as I suspected, then this operation will fail. You might have to go back into BIOS Setup and verify that the settings didn't save.
Unfortunately, I have tried numerous times hitting F2.
If I boot off a thumb drive or disc with just the .bio file on it, Hitting F2 when I see it flash up, keeps going right into attempting to flash the BIOS, then fails.
If I boot without a thumb drive or disc, I never get a splash screen that says hit F2.
When powering on, immediately begin pressing F2 over and over (once per second) until it is accepted. Do not wait for the BIOS POST splash screen to appear. When restarting, when Windows completes its shutdown and blanks the screen, begin pressing F2 then. Again, do not wait for the BIOS POST splash screen to appear.
Were you ever able to get into BIOS Setup? If so, try using F9 to reset the BIOS configuration and F10 to save it. If this succeeds, maybe flash isn't bad. If it fails, board is likely a goner.
Have you tried again pressing the F2 key over and over and over from the point where you power on until it is accepted at the BIOS POST Splash screen?
Well, F9 doesn't do anything related to BIOS entry, but yea, I get the message. I am not sure what to suggest at this point. I think the board's likely a goner at this point. RIP.
Let me ask this question:
When I try to apply a BIOS close to my version, I believe 1521, I get error message: (0x000000000000007, 1301).
When I try to apply BIOS 2006, I get error message (0x000000000000007, 1305).
When it tries to apply, it shows me my current BIOS, so I know the BIOS isn't that message up, but it won't just over right. Its doing some kind of check or backup. What could it be looking for?
