Hi :)

I am trying to install a modded bios onto an ASUS MB from 2013, outfitted with UEFI BIOS. The BIOS that exists is the original BIOS vers, and is the latest avail.

It's not working, tho :/

I have the CAP file in the root dir. of a 4GB FAT32 USB FD, plugged it into the BIOS FB port. I pressed the BIOS FB button for three sec, it flashed a few times, and then went solid. And stayed solid for a long time.

Then I tried the current BIOS which I got form the ASUS site, making sure that the filename is what is in the manual. Same thing. It flashes a few times, and then goes solid. At least nothing bad is happening, as I can still boot.

I have tried reformatting the FD to FAT, but no go.

So first, can I do a flashback with the same vers that already exists? And secondly, any idea as to anything else I can try?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for moving this; sorry I initially posted in the wrong place.

New info - the behavior listed above is the same behavior when no FD is plugged in to the port. So, it appears as tho the MB is not seeing the FD, and/or the CAP file. Not sure how to proceed.

USB FD like in Floppy Disk VIA USB adapter ? Why not just a normal USB stick/dongle ?
