    Default P67A-UD7 Renesas Firmware Flash Failure

    When I try to update the firmware it locks up with CPU usage at 30%+. It just keeps spawning cmd.exes indefinitely (if I left it, it would fill up all my 16GB of RAM). When I end task, the updater goes away, but the cmd.exes keep multiplying.




    - I disabled one controller before attempting to update.
    - I tried it with drivers installed, and without.
    - Nothing attached to USB 3.0 ports. Mouse and keyboard are in the yellow 2.0/ESATA hybrid ports.

    Sorry, my mistake. It was a case of RTFM! The release notes said you have to run the updater in XP SP2 compatibility mode to prevent the loop, and that worked. In my defense, the notes were in French, and what kind of crappy updater does locks up the whole system? The previous updaters didn't do that...
