Because of the number of steps between 37 and 48, I would recommend installing this via the BIOS Recovery method.
For information on the BIOS Update process, consult Intel Desktop Boards BIOS Update Instructions and, for this case, Intel Desktop Boards Recovery BIOS Update Instructions.
To help you better, here are my step-by-step instructions for BIOS Recovery:
Hope this helps,
Hi, thank you for this long answer and steps but i have allready updated the BIOS by Intel instructions and it was successful.
Can i still do the proces you wrote? Will there be any diferences?
Hi, My DH55TC board has been very reliable over the years. Windows 10 worked for years, but stopped booting after a routine Windows update. I installed a new hard drive and everything worked again. Recently problems began to return, so I followed your instructions precisely and updated the BIOS and went from ver. 37 to 48. The boot now goes straight to the windows repair mode and nothing I do gets much beyond that point, even attempts to format the newer drive.
However, if I put in one of my old Windows 7 Ultimate hard drives it boots perfectly.
Can I assume that the problem is with Windows 10? Is this motherboard no longer compatible with Windows 10?
This process ensures that all components in the firmware update package are properly and completely installed. We hope that this is the case anyway; this process just makes sure. If you believe that everything is ok at it stands right now, you don't have to do this. You can come back to it if you see anything strange happening in the upcoming weeks.
Do you know if you are booting legacy or UEFI? What were you booting with the old bios?
Look in your bios. If it is legacy, change to UEFI, and vice-versa.
