Default asus formula rampage motherboard bios update

I have an asus formula rampage motherboard and everytime I boot up the computer it tells me the CPU is unknown and I need a bios update. How do I update my Bios without destroying my computer?

What os do you have? 32bit or 64bit?

Do not use AsusUpdate to flash your bios if you are using 64bit windows, it will kill your m/board

I've had no trouble using AsusUpdate with 32bit os, it's simple to use and should be on your m/board support CD

EDIT: This is for your E8600???

Refer to your manual for the methodology on how to flash, if you don't have a manual d/load the .pdf copy from Asus

If you are using 64bit Windows then AFUDOS is probably the easiest to use, you'll need a bootable floppy and a floppy with your AFUDOS & bios.rom file on it

Boot into DOS with the bootable floppy, eject it, insert the AFUDOS & .rom floppy, run AFUDOS as per manuals instructions.

READ THESE:

Link one at Asus

Link two at Asus
