    Default Qflash

    Can I do this with a Burnable CD?

    I burned it as your normal CD so it would boot up but it only sees my floppy drive (which I don't have) and wont run from a CD. I really don't want to format my USB stick as the few times I have done this it seems to die a few weeks later while taking out my USB slots.

    I don't have either....I would have thought you could do this with a CD as all my past bios updates have been via burned CD.

    Well I have never used qflash I just did the normal bios update method. The thing is doing it that way doesn't appear to work unless there is a special way to do this via Nero.

    QFlash is built into the BIOS. You do not need a bootable device. Just place the file on a USB stick. You might want to read the sticky about QFlash to familiarize yourself with it before you try it.

    Oh nice I didn't have to format my flash drive to do it thanks. I did read the Qflash FAQ but it said FAT32 which my current flashdrive is not but it worked so no issues there.

    Though one snag I went a head and did it...it rebooted then I went and "optimized defaults" then I hit ok...it rebooted and then I went in and set my overclock settings back to original and when it rebooted it said "auto recovering bios.............................................. ...................."

    I am assuming something went wrong? Do I have to let it do a full boot to windows before overclocking again?


    *edit*
    Well CPU-z shows F11 but it seems it reset my overclock....rather odd makes me wonder what that error message was.


    *edit*
    Well nothing looks wrong here...if there is anything I should know let me know please. I appreciate the help I guess it was user stupidity in the end :)

    The Auto recover message was maybe informing you that it's flashing the backup BIOS to match the current version of QFlash and essentials used by F11.

    Any time a BIOS update requires this, one must flash, load optimized defaults, reboot, let the PC boot to windows, IE to the DMI Pool screen first, where it will then flash the backup. Loading of Windows isn't necessary, just saying that as toon as you've let the board go far enough to flash the backup BIOS, you're beyond the point of no return and Windows will start right after any way.

    When all this is complete, you can set your OC just fine. If you try setting your OC before then, without letting the backup BIOS flash, it'll disallow your changes until you leave it to do what it needs to. I asume this is because it needs to flash the backup from the main and doesn't want even the slightest bit of user interference for safety sake.

    Ya that is normal with some BIOSes as Qflash needs updating so the backup Chip is flashed with the same BIOS as well.
