    May b, I've tried 1803 and earlier versions too H 170 Pro for sure. The problem now is that I can't go through the F1 phase. I am redirected to the " please continue the updating process" or black screen ;

    Do you have an option to continue the " please continue the updating process"?

    yes I have but using the internet (which is not the case because if I hit this option being unable to load the LAN drivers—I suppose—I am sent back to the F1 sequence) OR to use the USB, BUT in this screen the USB are not shown; I've tried 3 different sticks FAT 16/32 visible once in Boot choosing device section and able to run from these bupdater.exe / Free-dos.

    By the way folks in your opinion this is out on warranty? I just read a line in the warranty certificate that makes me "smile" regarding the BIOS update procedure and the possibility to return the mobo.

    Hi SB , strange , I did notice the /CSM on the Name but when I searched motherboards with the H170 Chip, Asus's Website only shows 3 H170 Boards and only one with Pro in the Name, the two websites look identical too. Maybe it is only showing current models when I search that way?

    when I Search H170 another way I still don't see a Plain H170 Pro

    The link to both bios's is also Identical , so hopefully Sara is Ok.

    Have you tried this?

    Also, knowing Asus, yes, they will want to charge you. But, other than the hassle, them replacing the BIOS chip is not expensive. I think they quoted me something like $30 once. I didn't do it. But....

    do you have the RJ45 Lan cable plugged into the MB and Router ?

    bupdater in your pic is from 2011 so I am wondering if it is too old/incompatible with the bios file?

    Pic seems to indicate 1803 is half way done .... I have not seen that before

    do you have anymore info on the exact MB model ? I can't find a H170 Pro , what is written on the board? is there a Revision No#

    there is a H170L-Pro/CSM , a H170-Pro /CSM ,H170 Pro Gaming, etc SB maybe right , it may not be the correct Bios....

    @Kbird this is the H170 Pro and I have the RJ45 Lan cable plugged into the MB of the laptop that I am using of course with different MAC address . First I should configure the LAN (in Windows) and talk to the provider to switch me to the Desk and after that to use the connection which is impossible. More than that, It wont work, just tried after the hard reset to access that section and I am sent back to the F1 sequence. Regarding the bupdater, that was the only version that I've find on other mobo's section. But i don't think that could be a problem being from 2011 because it's working in DOS.

    @essenbe good to know, great guys :) yep I've tried that and receive this. some details in post #19.
    The only thing left untested (I'll do that tomorrow I hope) is to find a small USB stick ~64-512MB format FAT 16/32 prepared and see what's happen.

    The size of the USB stick won't matter.

    I don't think it is the stick size either as I can use 16mb (SD card) to 16gb sticks with no problem

    Most Providers allow 2 Mac No#s , but if you have a Router , they only see the Router's mac# , so you don't need to tell them whether it is the laptop or desktop , you could have 10 computers all hooked to the router , the ISP still only sees the Router Mac#....

    Yes I know ... unfortunately I don't have a router just the cable plugged directly.
