    might be that the previous owner of that board had the same problem and eventually managed to get the LE R2.0 bios to go in.

    seeing similar on tinternet:
    I'm trying to flash my P8P67 PRO Rev 3.1 (southbridge B3 Stepping) and I keep getting this nonsense about integrity check failing. I'm trying to flash the P8P67-PRO-REV31-ASUS-3602 ROM and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

    ....

    Okay so I tried the 3602 (NON REV 3.1 B3 STEPPING) which is NOT what board I have and it seems to work just fine...?

    Go figure.
    I would be tempted try the latest bios from the LE R2.0 - the earlier version from it must have worked

    It could be that your present bios supports the i5-3xxx just fine. Dont know till you try.

    IGNORE MY LAST POST - UPDATE - AND MYSTERY SOLVED
    Was going to remove last post, but then I thought it may help someone else so I will leave it up

    Despite my motherboard being a P8H61-M PRO, it seems that bios on this system is linked to the system name, which is a Essentio CM6730, and the bios has to be flashed from this link P8H61-M-PRO-ASUS-CM6630-8 BIOS 0904, and as you see bios version his 0904, which why the old one, yes I said the old one was 0704.
    I now have a newer bios 0904, newer in the fact this was is dated 2014, were the 0704 was 2013. It states Windows 8 Only, but it seems to be running fine.

    Did throw up a warning when system first booted "The VGA Card is Not Supported by UEFI Driver" This is a new one on me, so any help would be appreciated

    So tomorrow I go in for the big one, and that is swap over the CPU, (sorry a bit dramatic... But I love a bit of drama)

    0904 If your Desktop current BIOS file is XXXX.ROM, please do notupgrade your BIOS to this version .

    you might have to go back to avoid that graphics card problem, presumably you made a backup ? Fortunately it is still linked for download.

    From my previous post
    It could be that your present bios supports the i5-3xxx just fine. Dont know till you try.
    Though now you could go back, you might try going back to the 0902 first and see if that helps with the uefi graphics card business.

    the 0704 is a .cap interestingly P8H61-M-LE-R2-ASUS-0704.CAP

    Thanks, SIW2 for your input, P8H61-M LE R2.0 was a no go "Security Failed" so I have reverted back to 0902, but still get the same issue. To be honest it might have been like this since I got the system, as I just wanted to run twin screens.

    I might however take the card out and work with the onboard graphics, as this allows me to run one HDMI and one VGA, so I will if I notice ant difference when I upgrade the CPU tomorrow.

    If the CPU fails I may have to look for a cheap board bundle

    Not sure what you mean by "the 0704 is a .cap interestingly P8H61-M-LE-R2-ASUS-0704.CAP"

    using the graphics on the cpu is probably the sensible way.

    Wait one minute. It thought you had a Asus P8H61-M PRO motherboard? Why are you trying a BIOS from a different motherboard. At best it won't work and at worst you will brick your motherboard.

    Why don't you update your BIOS from inside the BIOS itself? From there it doesn't care which O/S you are using.
    Inside the BIOS use EZ Flash 2:
    1. Select Advanced Mode
    2. Go to the Tool menu
    3. Select ASUS EZ Flash Utility
    4. Select the BIOS file on the flash drive
    5. Press the Enter key


    I don't know what problem you are having with your graphics card.

    I have a couple old computer with Windows 10. One of them used to have a GPU of the same series as yours. It has never had a problem with any computer or O/S I used it with.

    BTW, for testing purposes for a short time I ran the Nvidia GTS 250 GPU in a modern computer with a UEFI BIOS and a Ryzen CPU. No problems at all.

    By the Nvidia GTS 250 GPU uses the same driver as your Nvidia GT 210 which is version 342.01 (December 14, 2016).

    Because they have Essentio CM6730 which must of been a flagship model for 1155 this was never established initially which is why there was confusion in the thread as to why they had a LE bios on the motherboard
    (same revision numbers), turns out its removed one step further again and its another bios all together.

    There is not much info online about the system really outside of generic stuff and it looks like Asus's way of proprietarizing the h61 line of motherboards, in that regard its a bit of a step down but it shouldn't matter.

    That explains it. Somehow I missed where this was revealed. It is a custom motherboard. It may be similar to the Asus P8H61-M PRO but it is not.

    For BIOSs for the Essentio CM6730 you go to this web page:

    Essentio CM6730 BIOS downloads
    Essentio CM6730 - Support

    Here is a picture of the Asus Essentio CM6630 motherboard which may be similar to the Essentio CM6730 one.

    oof yeah its a step down alright its missing all the VRM heat sinks and other stuff that the other models have, expected this to be the case.

    Flagship was the wrong term but they would of used these probably to repurpose stock seeing as they never had heatsinks.

    Ok, so it looks like adding this CPU upgrade will be a waste of time... As you guys clearly state this will be going back wards, so open to any suggestions.
    Please before anyone advises me that this system is EOF, I know that but sadly this is all I can afford, after losing everything due to Covid-19.

    So I am open to suggestion other than scarp it... Have been looking at motherboard bundles on eBay, but again out of financial reach, and the cheaper ones, not sure if I will have the same issues.

    Sorry about our Wayne story, just wanted to explain.
