I'm trying to upgrade the BIOS after the 1009 version,which hangs on boot. However, even with all drives disconnected the system still hangs. Any ideas how to get the computer to boot from floppy so I can install 1010.004?
: December 10, 2003: I got a P2L97 rev. 1.05 board off eBay. BIOS version was 1005. Tried to upgrade to 1009 with AFLASH.EXE, but it would not recognize the flash memory. Tried PFLASH.EXE; upgraded, but the boot would hang if a hard drive was connected. Disconnected all HDD, got it to boot, but BIOS would hang if I tried to change the HDD BIOS settings. Downloaded version 1010.004 beta. Loaded with PFLASH. System works fine. Good luck!
: : I "was" just about to upgrade mine but you all have me too nervous to try it.
: : : I've got the same problem !!! damn Asus
: : : : I was searching the knowledge base on asus, since i had the same problem. there I found a newer bios you can download... well, I can't boot, so i will have to go to a technician who can burn this or the old bios on the EPROM...
: : : : you can download it here:
: : : : ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/beta/mb/bios/lx10104.zip
: : : : it at least has a newer date... and regarding to the knowledge base, it will support HD bigger than 65GB..

In bios I can�t find anything wrong and it finds the 40GB drive i put in but it dosn�t boot from any of the devices.
