    P5sd2-vm asus


    Hi guys, Havent been here in awhile so please bear with me. I am trying to do a Bios upgrade to this mobo but the EZflash cannot find my flash drive. Instructions call for floppy but they are gone, then it asks to insert a CD but that did not work so i tried a 8 gb. flash drive and that did not work either. Is there any way to upgrade this board some other way. It is old but a good board otherwise. Thanks

    What version of windows are you running?

    You'll have to do it manually.

    The Windows version doesn't matter seeing you're trying to flash a BIOS so the real question is what board are you referring to?

    Well, yeah, that board is certainly too old since it's requiring a floppy disk to update the BIOS. You could try the internet route as described in chapter 2 (page 2-10) of the owners manual. You can download your manual at Asus's site here.

    Honestly I wonder if it's even worth updating after all this time seeing the last BIOS update for that board was July of 2009. Additionally I don't even see Windows 10 support (doesn't matter for BIOS, but does for drivers).

    Anyway, why are you trying to update the BIOS?

    Thanks, It was a great board. I dug it up a couple of weeks ago and installed w10. It is telling me to do an update. Just seeing if there was a workaround.

    I'm 99.999.99 percent sure the it's "telling me to do an update" has nothing to do with the BIOS, but rather the motherboard drivers itself... which of course can't be done seeing there are no "Windows 10" drivers for the board. You might try the 8.1 drivers and see how that goes.

    Good luck.

    BTW did you try the Internet option for the BIOS update?

    Anyway I'm somewhat surprised you were able to get Windows to install on that board. Would be interested to know how it's performing?

    Good luck.
