    ALiveNF6G-VSTA

    Dear customer,
    Thanks for contacting ASRock via TweakTown Forum.

    About the question of using AM3 CPU, please kindly update the latest BIOS L2.26 from the attached file to try.
    Due to the resource limitation, we couldn't help you to scan all AM3 CPU.
    But we test below CPU with L2.26, these CPU can be supported by L2.26.
    The CPU list is as below for your referance.
    1. AthlonII X2 245 (ADX245OCK23GQ)
    2. AthlonII X2 240 (ADX240OCK23GQ)
    3. AthlonII X4 620 (ADX620WFK42GI)
    4. AthlonII X4 630 (ADX630WFK42GI)
    5. PhenomII X4 955 (HDZ955FBK4DGI)

    Thanks for your support and TT message.


    Have a nice day

    So it looks like YES it s gonna support am3 procesors even 4x.

    I will try use one x3 procesor and will let know if it work.

    But now i have a problem because i don t know how i should update BIOS.
    According to page i should have SMART page in my BIOS setup i dont have such thing.
    However i find video Asrock alive nf6g-vsta bios 2.26 - YouTube. But i dont know if it will work. And i have that file on the USB DISK.

    So what i should do ? Should i put 1st boot from USB and then just write UPDATE ??? Please help me how to flash my BIOS.

    Thank you for help.

    BIG THANKS TO ASSROCK SUPPORT FOR TRYING PROCESORS JUST BECAUSE OF ME.

    P.S: Do you think that it will AMD ATHLON II x4 640 work when 630 working ???

    When you download the ALiveNF6G-VSTA(L2.26).zip bios file it will be in zip compressed file format and you need to unzip this file and copy the unzipped file to your usb drive for flashing. The unzipped file name is ALVN6VT2.26

    The video that you linked to uses a different method of bios flashing.
    It looks like he created a bootable CD that has a bios flashing program named Update on the CD.
    You can't use this method if you don't know know exactly what you are doing.

    On the Beta download page, the How To Update icon displays the following Instant Flash instructions:
    Method 1:
    1. Save the BIOS files on a device such as USB disk (FAT32 format), hard disk (FAT32 format) and floppy drive.
    2. Press < F2 > during POST to get into BIOS setup menu.
    3. Select the utility under [Smart] menu to execute it.

    Do you see Smart menu option near the upper left corner on your bios screen after pressing F2?

    When i was in Bios i try to pres every F buton from F1 to F12 but i still didn t get SMART option.

    How much speed would i lost if x4 procesor would work ? It is even worthy paying 70euros(about 90dollars) for athlon x4 640 or performance will be almost same as on am3 mobo ? I hope you understand me with my english. :)

    BTW thank you for moving thread. It much easier to follow answers on one place.

    Thank you BIG for helping me.

    You're welcome.

    According to the flashing instructions when you Press F2 during POST, this will bring you to the BIOS setup menu.
    From the BIOS setup menu you should select the Instant Flash utility in the Smart menu portion of the window to run it.

    Look at the attached picture on the left.
    The red box on the top left is for the SMART menu.
    The red box on the bottom left is for the ASRock INSTANT FLASH UTILITY and this what you want to run to flash your bios.
    The only way I could barely read this information was by viewing the window on the left in full screen mode in my image editing program.

    note to ASRock:
    1. These pictures need to have much higher resolution and the bios flashing instructions should be available as a high quality PDF file that can be downloaded!!
    2. The bios flashing instructions should also say the the downloaded bios file is in the ZIP file format and that this file needs to be unzipped where the unzipped bios file needs to be copied to the usb flash drive or another drive that is formatted using FAT32.



    Low resolution bios flashing instructions from the ASRock web page from the How To Update instructions.


    ** edit **
    Someone else will need to advise you on AMD cpu performance.
    My only AMD experience was many years ago with an AMD K6 cpu.

    From ASRock > ALiveNF6G-VSTA - Beta Bios Download try Method 2 from the How To Update instructions for the L2.26 beta bios:

    Method 2:
    1. Save the BIOS files on a device such as USB disk (FAT32 format), hard disk (FAT32 format) and floppy drive.
    2. Press <F6> when you see this (or similar) page.

    No at all.
    I don t have such screen when i starting my PC but anyway i try pressing f6 nothing happen.
    I have only pres f2 to get to BIOS.
    Or f11 to get to boot menu.

    Maybe i will contact Emilly again what do you think ?

    And on the pictures from first method on the first picture on the bottom there is v02.61

    In my BIOS i have v02.59.

    Send a PM to Emily and be sure to include a link to this thread.

    Is there any way that you can take a digital photo of your F2 bios main screen and post the picture?

    You can use the rectangular Insert Image icon to include one photo per post from your PC and you can include multiple photos only if they are accessible from a website, such as a file sharing site where each photo has its own web address.
