    Put windows 10 on an old hard drive and that did not work. It would not boot to it but found a solution that worked for me.

    Thanks for the advice AFRIKA just to let anyone else know I found and old hard drive slapped it in there and used the microsoft Create Windows 10 installation media tool. I created a USB Windows 10 installation media stick and that worked for me. put in the stick and installed a fresh copy of windows 10. I will repost when finished flashing and let people know if I was able to fix the problem and down grade from freakin forced windows flash.

    Thanks Again Credit AFRIKA for helping me start the process.

    So this solution worked for me please read the previous posts to get an idea but I will quickly run through what i did.

    Remember The final step to down grade the BIOS is to run win flash through command prompt. That way it wont block you with error bios is older than current version. Use link below for instructions on how to do this.

    downgrade bios

    If you were having trouble booting even after switching hard drives with a loaded version of windows use the step above to create a new windows install flash drive.

    I downgraded to version 305 and slapped the old ssd drive and my data drive back in. I had to find an old hard drive which was time consuming looking for it so its not an easy fix if you dont have one. You will prob have to buy one or if like me you had a data drive were you didnt want to lose everything find a way to back it up and use that for the clean install. It was BS that we had to even go through this SCREW YOU Micro Soft. What ever bone head decided to automatically flash a bios is a real smart cookie. I would not be surprised if some systems brick permanently. Good luck guys.

    I think we (PC users in general) can expect to see more UEFI updates via Windows Update - https://blogs.windows.com/buildingap...rmware-update/

    And here's what I found in ASUS FAQ about recent UEFI update - https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1040162
    BIOS updated to ensure more security when setting BIOS password
    Last Update : 2019/06/06 17:15

    ASUS has released a BIOS update for notebook PCs to ensure a more secure and convenient computing experience.
    This update only affects the users who currently have a password for their BIOS or hard drive.
    Concerned users with a password should install the new BIOS update via Windows Update or download it from https://www.asus.com/support/.

    search for an old hard drive (Non SSD) with windows and from there roll back to the bios 306 using the winflash app from asus, open the folder where winflash is installed, press shift + right click and press open a power shell window here.

    then use the following command: .\ winflash /nodate after pressing enter, the winflash app will open, select the 306 bios and flash it.

    Greetings, all. I love my GL702VM but the 310 Windows Update ruined my ability to use the keyboard and USB. The touchpad still works.
    Using the on-screen keyboard, I've tried:
    -Reverting to 305, still no keyboard
    -Reverting to 306, no keyboard but USB works sometimes
    -Upgrading to official 310, no good.

    I switched back to the stock mSATA SSD and unfortunately still no keyboard access.
    Reinstalled Windows 10 from USB DVD and it worked great... until Windows updated.
    Restored from an image so I'm at least still in an on-screen keyboard state.

    I don't know how to get back to a state where the keyboard works. Any clues? Asus chat unfortunately had no clues about rolling back BIOS changes.
    Thank you!

    Edit: what finally worked: Fresh Win10 install from USB DVD to the NVME using a USB keyboard, block updates, download only ASUS patches from GL702VM page- running the keyboard updater after the chipset driver. Keyboard and USB are back. Fingers crossed.

    hello.

    i tried to enter to the bios set up but it doesn’t, i just can turn it on or off, I think windows update flashed my laptop with a wrong bios version.

    what can i do? is there a way to reflash de bios with the correct one?

    Thanks for the help.
    removed 850 evo in D Drive position, reinstalled sata hdd in D drive. Boots fine. 850 works in usb in closure but no longer in gl702vm. go figure!
