Asus bios flash failed


Jan 12, 2012

i have a computer of my sisters for uni work that she wants to upgrade. it currently runs windows xp no problems.

i have a hard drive with windows 7 on it from my good computer and it boots perfect and loads into windows 7 etc.

cloned it. with bootsuite2011

tested the clone in the computer i cloned it from and it works sweet.

i put it in the other PC and no such luck, drops out at the windows loading screen.
i tried all all bootsuite tools to fix the problem with no luck

is the problem that windows 7 will not load on an older bios?

so i thought that might be the problem anyway so i tried updating bios with another dead end.

bios will not update no matter which bios i use it says its not compatible.

current bios is:
model: P5L-VM-1394
version: 0405
chipset: 945G
date : 1/10/2007
Bios Type: AMI
Bios Size: 512k

i tried using EZ Flash 2 that is built into my system and it says that the bios ID is incompatible or something (and i tried all bios available for that board from ASUS site)

i also tried running the XP HDD and using the AFUWIN with no luck either and a couple other flash programs.

is there something i have missed and I'm focusing on the wrong area???

sorry:your motherboard is not compatibile with windows7.
is time to think about new computer system.
IMO - install the OS clean and don't clone.

As far as BIOS, only use ASUS EZ Flash 2 and never through the OS - ever.

ASUS P5L-VM 1394 -

How to use ASUS EZ Flash 2:
EZ Flash 2 is a built-in App to allow the BIOS to be upgraded and USB Flash Drive is the storage for the BIOS ROM file to be stored/accessed from with BIOS EZ Flash 2. The USB Flash drive must be formatted in FAT-32.
