DH61BR BIOS 0028 to 0034 update problem

Jump to solution

Current specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

CPU: i5 2310

MEM: 8GB ddr3 1333mhz

GPU: GTX 660 ti

My bios now: BEH6110H.86A.0028

My bios before any update: BEH6110H.86A.0018

First of all: I have already read this page: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-033076.htm Desktop Boards — Updating the BIOS to support 3rd Generation Intel� Core� Processors

and it did not work for me.

Hello, i recently purchased a i5 3570k, which i wish to use in my DH61BR (socket 1155). In order to do so, i must update my bios and unfortunately, im having issues.

The model is the DH61BR (with a i5 2310), which i couldn't find any information in the intel website, and very little over the internet, so I decided to uptade my bios folowing the H61CR intructions (which was very similar to others H61xx boards).

My starting BIOS was the BEH6110H.86A.0018, which i updated to 20 -> 23 -> 28. All went fine.

When trying to update the 28 to the 34 (coudn't find any other versions betwenn them) i got stuck, and couldn't continue to update. The error message was the same as the one given when we try to update to a "distant" version (18 -> 35, for example).

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Im using the .EXE files to update the bios, such as this one: BEH6110H.86A.0034.EB.EXE.

Heard something about a transition version of the BIOS, but coudnt find out what it really was, if it helps solving my problem.

Thanks, for your attention.

Hello, thanks for the help, again.

I tried the Express and the Recovery methods, and both did not work for me.

Then I tried the F7 BIOS Flash method (http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-030144.htm Desktop Boards — Instructions for F7 BIOS Flash update)

First it did not recognize the USB drive, so i changed it and then updated with no further problems.

Maybe the cause of the problem when trying the Recovery method was this bad USB drive (although it did work fine in Windows 7).

Thank you very much Diego_Intel, for trying to help me!

And thanks very much for Jenny, from the support staff, who stood more than an hour trying to help me (I hope she sees this)!

Im very grateful.

The message is: "The Express BIOS Update was unsucessful. Your system's BIOS has not been updated. Restart the application and use the VIew Readme button for troubleshooting your BIOS update"

Also, when looking at my MOBO, I noticed that it had written in it: DH61CR, so the DH61BR is the same as the DH61CR.

Try clearing the CMOS of the system before attempting to update. To clear the CMOS remove the CMOS battery and all power cables from the power supply to the motherboard, leaving the system without power for 20 minutes at least. Then reconnect the cables and try the update again, however this time, as a BIOS recovery update.

The steps for the BIOS recovery process are provided in this article:

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-023360.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-023360.htm

Be sure to disconnect all peripherals not required for the update, even the mouse, keyboard, hard drives and any other CD/DVD ROM, this may take up to 15 minutes even if there is no display on the system

The file you need to use is posted here:

Version 0034

0034 BIO File

You can also try with the 0035 version posted on the following site:
