Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"


Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

How to Reflash Motherboard BIOS About updating BIOS... The whole BIOS updating procedure should be treated with extreme caution. If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it. If you determine to flash BIOS, you are taking a personal risk of BIOS flash failure. Please contact your supplier or our distributors/resellers for further remedy in case system crashes unfortunately because of BIOS flash failure. Before you begin... 1. Please make sure the BIOS version you want to flash matches your motherboard model. 2. If your BIOS is flash protected, please do not enable BIOS Flash Protection under Advanced CMOS Setup (AMI BIOS) or Advanced BIOS Features (AWARD BIOS) in BIOS menu. 3. Never interrupt when you BIOS is being updated. 4. Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction. Three BIOS Flash Utilities... We provide three BIOS flash utilities at our website. Below are the overviews. 1 : flashbios_qflash.gif A BIOS flash utility embedded in Flash ROM. Not all motherboards have the Q-Flash, please use @BIOS or DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not have Q-Flash. Features-- With this utility, you only have to stay in the BIOS menu when you want to update BIOS. No need to enter DOS or O.S. mode. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional floppy disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 2 : flashbios_atbios.gif A Windows-based BIOS live update utility. Features-- @BIOS helps you search for, download, and then update the latest BIOS in Windows operating system. Caution-- Make sure your O.S. environment is stable. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 3 : DOS Flash utility Features-- The flash utility is a combination of AMI and AWARD BIOS flash utility. You can use it with both AMI and AWARD BIOS. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional DOS boot disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard.

Hi, I would like to update my GA-8I848P-G motherboard's BIOS. But I don't know how I can do it. Could you send to a soft to flash the new BIOS?! Kind regards, Grafi


You can get the BIOS flash utility at the Gigabyte website. As far as the actual flashing is concerned, it is a fairly simple and straight forward process. The specifics will depend on the utility that you download. You will need TWO things. The flash utility and the firmware you wish to install. Just a bit of warning, improper flashing of the mobo's BIOS can lead to catastrophic failure of the motherboard, so take care and follow the instructions to the letter.

The BIOS has been corrupted. Machine will not boot. Message says Bad Checksum. The only way to rewrite the Bios would appear to be using the Award Bios flash utility. Problem is this demands a DOS file...


call tech support for the asus mb.. explain that the bios is corrupted..

or just turn off the power .. at the wall outlet

and jumper the board to reset the factory defaults for the bios

...

if this fails.. then asus may be able to provide a dos .bin file

renaming the windows file.. will not work!

it is program all contained in a single file and must have windows operational to execute

so... i hate when they write bios update software to operate under windows only



you can ship the board to asus for the bios to be flashed as the last resort

I always have failure to boot and have beep sounds. Already installed asus update v6.10.02, still shows overclocking failed on start up and requests to configure BIOS. My system includes: inno3D-FX5500...


1-Does your computer show any sign of response after power button press?
2-Is your power cable properly connected and have main power switched on both your power supply unit and the wall plug?
3-Is the 20/24-pin ATX power connector has been connected between your motherboard and power supply?
4-Can The standby power LED (Green blue) light up continuously after the mains power is connected? (Note: Both flashing and off are no good here)

Fix 1

(1) Isolate The power going into your system ( i.e. connect your system to the wall plug directly, without sharing the power with any other devices via power extension cable.)
(2) Check if the power supply and power cable functions correctly, and have the input of your power supply set to the correct position (either 100/110V or 220/240V, depending on your country)
(3) Please try replacing your power supply.

Fix 2

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)

Fix 3

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:

AFUDOS /i[biosname]

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.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

How to flash the bios i have a intel core 2 duo cpu 2.8ghz


you can flash ur Bios using flash drives.Following is the article how to do this:

Floppy disks have definitely gone out of fashion. This makes sense given their low capacity. But computer users have become accustomed to flashing BIOS with floppy diskettes; moreover, lacking them, a dilemma arises. This article will be a brief guide to setting up and creating a bootable USB flash drive and hooking it up with the flashing utility and new BIOS files.
In fact, this is the second segment of a four-part article series. In the first part we explained the foundations of USB flash drive booting. We saw different ways to do it that may appear through a great deal of motherboard variety of models and manufacturers. Ultimately, it can all be narrowed down to somehow picking and setting, as the first device, your USB thumb drive in the boot order. This may take a few tries.
Therefore, this article presumes a sound knowledge of what the previous article covers. If you missed that article, please do take your time to search for it and read it. You can find it published here on Dev Hardware too; it’s titled Fundamentals of Flash Drive Booting.
Even though we do our best to make each article easily understandable, straightforward and independent enough to stand alone, this article won’t get into the depths of BIOS settings related to booting up via an USB flash drive. We are going to begin with creating a bootable flash drive from scratch again, so if you want to continue working with the one you’ve already created, you can skip that part of this article.
Once we have done that, then we’ll move on the real stuff—hooking up your USB flash drive with the BIOS flashing utility that is appropriate for your motherboard; that is, of course, if we don’t choose to take the universal flasher route.

Problem with my Asus p5pe-vm motherbord.When i start it,the message CPU uCode loading error appears.What to do...HELPPPPPPP


If your over clocking your CPU settings reset to default. See if you still get the error. If you still get the error than update your bios. There are a couple of way to do this. You can use the software on your Asus CD or you can down load the latest BIOS-Utilities, Afudos BIOS update tool V2.36. Than download the bios file, P5PE-VM BIOS 1501.
http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=k3h0ZFVu9Lo1dUvk&content=download
Using built-in EZ Flash to flash BIOS Please be informed that not all motherboards support EZ Flash,
please use DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not support EZ Flash; http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?no=960&SLanguage=en-us

Happy holidays!

BIOS 1004 cpu not support


I got it :-)

Damn Asus , it was a hard session ;-)

1. Make an ISO from your original Asus CD denn insert (with isobuster or something) the Bios Firmware 1004 in the main Dir name the file M2N-MX.ROM

2.Burn a Second disc with the 0804 Bios ROM also rename the 0804 Rom to M2N-MX.ROM

3. Go to EZ FLASH with ALT + F2 and then insert the 1004 CD wait till Erasing is ready Then Turn OFF your PC :-) so you crashed the bios thats what you need to run the embeded CrashFRee Tool

4 After you turn your PC on insert the 0804 CD then it flashes the this Rom and we are Happy :-)
