My Asus Z97-Pro (WiFi ac) have bios v2303:
So I load the new bios (all the more recent bioses anyway) on USA flash:
I picked up the latest one (v2702) and tried…
…to upload it, then I get "not a proper BIOS" message:
NONE of the bioses I tested (v2401, v2501, v2601 and v2702) worked. All I download directly from Asus site:
…so could SOMEBODY tell me, what is going on?!
Next thing - let's try the mainboard function of USB BIOS Flashback - I put into the proper port (page 2-14 "bottom port supports USB BIOS Flashback") USB drive with file in the root directory, renamed by the BRenamerl.exe utility to "Z97P.CAP")
After power up, I hold the BIOS_FLBK button for 3+ seconds and I expected to see 3 blinks of the LED and beggining of the flash proces, but ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPEND.
The last attempt to flash bios update on Asus Z97-Pro (WiFi ac) was my attempt to boot from USB flash. Formated as DOS bootable device (or DrDOS) and in both attempts failed. Even afer disconnecting both SATA devices (HDD + DVD).
So the mainboard works, but it did not see the Samsung SM951 (MZ - HPV1280) M.2 128G SSD is not seen as device in bios or HDD prep programs like Mini Tool Partition Wizard Pro. Any help is need:
…perhaps it is just me, doing something wrong?
