Question about Computers & Internet
I don't have a floppy disk reader and the asus P4S800 only uses afudos to flash bios... but it detects for boot usb disks
I have got a solution this day for an other member.
Fist select in the BIOS SETUP the BOOT SEQUENCE and place in the firt place the USB drive to the secon your HDD ou CD-ROOM drive ans so one.
Be sure you have format your USB device as SYSTEM and have the system on it. Thats all.
You can download a light version of WINDOWS XP and put it on the USB flash drive or external USB disk.

1. No POST
1.1 Please clear CMOS to have a try (refer to motherboard manual for details)
1.2 If the problem still persists, please contact your retailer for a check
2. There is error message during POST: BIOS ROM checksum error. Detecting floppy drive A media... Insert system disk and press enter
2.1 If the support CD supplied with motherboard is available
2.1.1 Please restart system and put support CD into optical drive, then the system will recover BIOS automatically using CrashFree utility
2.2 If the support CD supplied with motherboard is not available
2.2.1 Prepare a formated floppy disk, then unzip the BIOS file downloaded from ASUS website into the floppy disk.
2.2.2 Please restart system and insert the floppy disk into floppy drive, then the system will recover BIOS automatically using CrashFree utility
2.3 If it is not helpful after the troubleshooting as the steps 2.1 or 2.2, please clear CMOS( referring to the manual introduction)
Please try the latest BIOS. I recommend you to use AFUDOS to update BIOS. You need to unzip it to get the ROM file.
You should use the command as follows:
or, afudos /i A:\BIOSNAME.rom(if the BIOS file is in the floppy disk)
You can store your BIOS into a floppy disk or a hard disk with FAT format. Then, you will be able to use AFUDOS to access the BIOS ROM file.
If it is not convenient for you to use DOS and AFUDOS, you can try to use EZ Flash. You can save the BIOS file into a flash disk then boot the system and enter BIOS, then you can update your BIOS by EZ Flash which is in the BIOS Tools page. Please load the default settings in BIOS after you have succeeded updating BIOS.
