    Exclamation G752VS - Can't flash BIOS

    So Windows 10 decide to update firmware drivers to new G752VS bios 312... It didn't even ask me do I want it but, never mind.
    After reboot, it tried to update the bios and it just stuck:



    No bar that it should erase and install new bios at all. Just looking at that screen and nothing happens.

    Anyway, I was like ok I will just download it myself and run Asus Easy Flash update from BIOS, but turns out I have same problem and I can't update the bios from BIOS?!?!

    I have downloaded correct BIOS version from https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ROG-G75...Desk_Download/
    And I have also try to use Asus WinFlash util but even that don't helps me out instlaling new BIOS.

    Is there any other way to force install bios, because now when I do reboot my laptop every second time system tries to update BIOS, and I can't stop windows from doing that...

    Correct model: asus g752vs-gc118t

    And here is the video what is going on :/

    Are your BIOS files on your C drive or do you have them on a USB drive?

    I think you will want them on a USB drive. I put mine on USB and my BIOS identifies the USB drive as FS1.

    Scroll through all the storage areas (FS0, FS1, FS2, FS3) and check if another copy of the 312 BIOS file is present. If you find it then use that copy to upgrade.

    Why do you have all those storage areas?

    Did you abort the Windows Update BIOS Upgrade attempt? Could your BIOS still looking for upgrade in memory? Unplug your laptop, take off back and remove your memory sticks, then reinstall. It would be better to remove your CMOS battery but that is a lot work.

    Perhaps you need to use WinFlash?

    Your Easy Flash is in loop. Probably happened when you aborted the Windows Update. I know when it happened to my G752VSK, I was puzzled but I let it do it's thing, rebooting into BIOS and doing the update by itself. Mine worked out but I worried because at the time ASUS had not identified the BIOS update.

    I looked throughout my laptop for a copy of the BIOS and found none. I think the Windows Update placed a copy in RAM and launched from there.

    Good Luck

    Best way for laptop is using winflash. Done within the OS then it will reboot and finish it up. Always had issues with any ASUS laptop trying to flash from the BIOS.

    So I have send the laptop to Asus Service in my country, they told me motherboard needs to be replaced. Kind a odd but, also kind a happy because device is out of warrenty and they will replace it for free because it's software problem with BIOS and they understand the problem it is causing.
