Do you mean something like this:
cite: Jonathan Fallon How does ASUS Crash Free BIOS 3 Work?
To use asus's crash free bios 3 you must:
Insert the Support Disc into the optical drive or insert a usb with the bios file inside
You must use vga or dvi directly plugged in into the motherboard
After CrashFree BIOS 3 starts working, you will hear 2 short "beeps" sound indicating that the BIOS file is recognized. If you hear 5 short "beeps", it mean no BIOS file is found. Please check whether the Support Disc is the right one for your motherboard, or make sure your optical drive is fully functional.
After hearing 2 short beeps, please wait 4 minutes for the CrashFree BIOS 3 operation to complete.
Restart your system.
not sure what he means by directly plugged into the Mobo ( might be a clue to this mystery ), probably means not plugged into a 3rd party GPU. He indicates that both VGA and DVI are supported.
I don't think the dumber utilities check the firmware, they just flash the firmware.
Two other things I forgot:
Do you need / want to rename the extension BIOS file ?
.CAP is for the ROG Mobo flash (special USB port & FLBK button on Mobo)
.ROM is for other methods (I think)
Can someone confirm this for me ... I got turned around a few times.
The 2nd file on the flash drive has the abbreviated ~1 filename convention.
I'm not sure what the filename should be - H170P - seen in a previous post ???
