Trying to recover from massive lightning strike in Aug. Killed much electronics in the house including three PCs. Have been assembling the nessessary part to rebuild and now find that the BIOS I need has been removed. Anyone have the file I need?
As the announcement on the Desktop Boards forum says, drivers and bios for these discontinued/unsupported boards have been removed.
Unless a forum member has the file(s) you need, you are on your own. You may want to explore some site (although I do not recommend it) like softpedia.
It is *supposed* to reboot. The installation of the BIOS update actually occurs after this reboot. Once the update starts, you should see an onscreen display of its progress. Once it is complete, the system will be rebooted again.
If you have run this, it is possible that the upgrade is already done. Reboot and use the F2 key to enter BIOS Setup. From there, you can see the BIOS version. If the upgrade is not installing, run it again and watch the progress screen while the upgrade is again being attempted to see if an error message is being displayed.
One known issue with the BIOS Upgrade process is that it can fail if there is a problem with the memory installed in the system. If the BIOS requires multiple attempts to successfully initialize the memory, it could lose track of the BIOS upgrade in progress. If what you are seeing is you select the .BIO file, the system reboots and then goes straight into Windows (or Linux) without appearing to do anything, this is likely the result of problematic memory.
Hope this helps,
Try installing this file using the BIOS Recovery process. I provided step-by-step instructions for doing so in this conversation: https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P00004VhEOFSA3/how-to-upgrade-dz75ml45k-bios-from-0006-to-00....
Hope this helps,
