    No I agree wait for Asus , though I am not sure how long that might take ?

    Most bios's on older computers default to booting from a floppy drive 1st , if attached , so I thought that might work?

    I use WinRaid for alot of information and Drivers , but alot of that information is way above the average Home User , in it's most basic form FPT just takes you provided renamed bios File ( see below) and reprograms the bios if it can find it , which may require a version for your board/chipset ( or not ) as can be seen at TweakTown.

    ie this is the how to file in the FPT Tool I have

    - add the BIOS file you want to flash and rename it "bios.bin"
    - start AUTOEXEC.BAT
    - flash started ... wait for "FPT Operation Passed"
    - restart with CTRL+ALT+DEL

    My new Asus Board with Flashback does not even require a CPU to be installed to Flash a Bios ....as long as it sees the USB Drive in the Flashback port of course , which is your big issue now.

    Might be worth while buying one of those $6 SPI programmers and trying that on your laptop.......

    *** Funny just saw your post on WinRaid and Pluto said the same thing :)

    I am not sure it is an option now but I just read that since your board does not have Flashback capability you can also use AMI's AFUDOS Flash utility too , it is available from AMI at the bottom of this page and is AMIBIOS8 Firmware Utility.

    there is a text file and PDF in the zip Package below

    *** Note ...I am not sure which AMI UEFI Bios you actually have AMI8, Aptio 4 or Aptio 5 . you would n eed to do more research.

    Here's hoping Asus just sends you a new Chip :)

    Thank you for you complete posts :)
    Yea, At first I thought that it will be pretty easy to roll back the previous version of the Bios or something then, getting deeper into this subject I've realized that the process is pretty complex. FTP, AMI, a specific programmer (not every cheap programmer like CH341 supports my chip) preserving the chip ID's into the new bios sequence, the header capsule which should be removed in .CAP file, taking in consideration the fact that as I've said above I have to erase/ write only a specific part of the bios not the whole thing ...this is to much, that's why I've opened the ticket; meanwhile, I just have to wait

    Solved, details here. Thank you all.
