As title. I didn't read through the release note at first and flashed the bios with 0099 and 0120. I should start with 0048 first. Now it require to restart the computer twice to function normally. Any chance I can save this? Appreciate your help and advice.

It amazes me how many people do this...😣

 

If you are still able to boot and the ME is still operating properly (i.e. you can see a valid ME firmware version displayed in the Additional System Information scene in BIOS Setup), then the good news is that you haven't completely bricked your BIOS. In this case, I suggest that you do two things:

 

  1. Reinstall the latest BIOS (i.e. BE0120.BIO) using the BIOS Recovery process. See Intel Desktop Boards Recovery BIOS Update Instructions for more information.
  2. In BIOS Setup, use F9 to reset the BIOS configuration to defaults. Save this change and exit BIOS Setup. Reenter BIOS Setup to make any changes that you absolutely require.

 

Hope this helps,

Maybe we could embed the ,bio file(s) inside the release notes.

I want to address here my problem. I've started updating my bios from 0020 version, until the 0035 one, then I'm stuck. I can't update it anymore, will abort the operation every time.

My goal is to use the i5 3570, I need at least the 0041 version, currently it does not work with it, it throws 3 bip on boot. I use the F7 method, any help would be greatly helpful, thanks.
