Default bios updates

Why are there so many bios update problems with Asus? Why don't they
figure out what works and post it and quit posting stuff that doesn't
work. Do you use EZbios update, do you boot in dos, do you update from
windows. Just pick one and fix it. I've read so many complaints that
there should be a class action lawsuit against Asus if they are
posting something that destroys the board.

I myself didn't have a problem updating the bios in my A7N8X-X mobo. I used
the windows based AsusUpdate, worked like a charm, and now, my bios will
accept upto 600mhz FSB, and my 1gb of Geil pc3200 ram runs at 200mhz 400
actual. Perhaps there are alot of amature's or wanna B's trying to flash
the bios ehy?

Anyone trusting Windoze to a BIOS update is a real amateur or dumb.

What are the odds of a Windoze abend, blue screen, or worse as apposed
to KISS DOS? Asus is doing users a real disservice IMO promoting a
less secure and reliable BIOS update program for the sake of glitz,
laziness, and incompetent users who should not be updating a BIOS if
they can not deal with DOS..

That's Keep It Simple, Stupid in case you don't know.

Can you substantiate the "less... reliable" bit of your rant, this "amatuer"
would like to know if there is an issue, or if your post is just a rant.

Windows is not verry reliable..
now I dont know HOW They do it BUT they could modify the MBR and point to
the flash program (so when the pc reboots then it reboots in dos, attempts
to flash, then modify's the MBR back for the windows boot) but I dont know
if they do that, if they are flashing from within windows then I would have
to say that I dont think it's a verry wise thing but compared to pre W2k (or
XP) systems then it would have been a complete mistake..
Even NT wasnt stable at some stuff, 98 and below would be horrid.

beats me, did I say something sub standard to you? I think I have a pretty
decent system, as a matter of fact, every system I've built has never had
any technical problems..... Perhaps you're confused?
