    Cool Managed to revert back to bios 1201

    Managed to revert back by removing the Graphic cards, then pressed clear cmos (while booting) ....

    then flashbios button worked.... how bizarre

    Back with bios 1201, will go up in versions to see when did it start to not work....since this bios version is lame with my 4 dimm set of ram.

    edit:So stay with 1201 if you use virtualisation and dedicated CGs.

    I guess it is not asus related but AMD related since I've seen other posts about the same issue with MSIs and gigabyte (only they were easier to downgrade).

    Yet it is a big flaw

    you should be able to rollback to any BIOS you wish using a usb pen formatted to fat32 and renaming the BIOS file to C7H.cap , ensure the .cap file is on the root of the USB such as D:\C7H.cap not in a folder , put it in the USB BIOS Flashback port on the back and press the button on your MB IO back plate.

    you also need to do a BIOS reset back to default before flashing as settings cannot be carried across,

    Just so you know this is a user to user forum and there is little to no interaction with ASUS here, unless they deem it worthy

    Good Luck
    Thank you for the instructions on how to roll back the firmware. I think I am going to give that a shot now.

    Since my last post I hit the wall after lots of tweaking at 2866MHz. If I step up one more step I just cannot get the memory stable at any voltage. I haven't even started tightening up the timings yet and I for sure lost 334MHz in the memory speed. I just don't understand how Asus could claim improved memory support and then I see worse performance.

    At least I know the firmware I had and a general idea of what my machine was dialed in at but I will still have to tweak it again to get it there because I didn't write it down on paper. Lesson learned, the hard way, profiles are not saved when updating the bios.

    In all honesty I don't know what I'm going to do now. I was looking forward to the better processor but would it be an overall gain when losing 10.5% of the memory speed in the BIOS update required to run the new processors.

    also it caused a hicup that untied my nvm raid , but most of all, it prevented my second graphic card to be powered on for virtualisation and GPU passthrough (card stays in D3 mode, can't be powered on, whereas it as working flawlessly previously -but there were ram stability issue-.....


    so I tried to rollback and....surprise, NO MORE FLASHBACK.... so beware and ASUS, please, fix it...


    I'm open to suggestions, and need these functionnalities
    This makes me want to cry.

    It didn’t amount to anything. The guy said he was looking into it and to wait 24 to 48 hours then today I got a survey because they closed the ticket. I would hope understandably so I nuked them in the survey.

    If the issue with the memory was AMD this issue with reverting and the lack of service is ASUS. I’m done with both companies. AMD won’t have the crown for long anyways.*
