They either require an old-fashioned operating system (Windows) or museum hardware (floppy drives) to update a BIOS.
I want to write this image to a usb and then boot from it, for updating bios. My system is E430, though the question is quite generic.
Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default."Reboot. If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility.
You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu.
Since I had 2 USB 3.0 Ports, I plugged it in to the other one it it worked after plugging in and out several times..
Now there was a sec power surge and the same thing is happening again on the 2nd port!
Is the drive recognized somewhere when connected to the USB 3.0 port?
