Re: MSI Z68A-GD65 wonít boot after updating Bios to 7681vP1
I donít know if there is any specific reason behind people having issues after updating their bios by windows flashing method but as far as a safe flashing is concerned, DOS USB method is the safest. I know it has not been return anywhere that window flashing method is not a safe method and so but I personally donít recommend it as I have come across people having such issues after using it. In reflashing you just can flash the bios with the same 7681vP1 again or with the updated version available at the manufacturer side. For that you need to have the system booting, I mean if it is booting but not loading windows after that, then you can try out reflashing method but if it is not booting at all or posting to the screen then you wonít be able to fix it out and you will have to contact the manufacturer. They might reflash it with some means if possible or will replace the bios chip after which you should not have any such issues. If you want to know about the reflashing method then I will like to inform you that it can be done by the below two methods after downloading the bios update executable from the manufacturer website. Reflashing BIOS Using a Floppy Disk:
Reflashing BIOS with a Bootable CD:
- First insert a blank floppy disk into some other computers floppy drive and format it, after that copy the BIOS update executable on the same. Once you are ready with it then just insert the same in to the targeted system and boot to the floppy drive.
- After booting just run the BIOS update executable, actually you donít have to interact with the process and it should reflash BIOS automatically.
- Once it is reflashed you can take out the floppy reboot the system and check out if it is booting properly or not.
- Here you just have to download the bootable BIOS update ISO file from manufacturer website and burn it to a CD using some CD burning program. When you are ready with the cd then just boot the system from this cd and then allow the BIOS update to proceed.
- I will also like to inform you that some manufacturers donít provide ISO file rather they provide BIOS update executable file. In that case you will have to create a bootable CD image with that file. For creating a bootable CD you can use CD burning program and just add the BIOS update file to the image which will be created. After creating bootable CD you can boot from it and Run the executable file.
