Asus P5W DH + Retail Conroe BIOS Issues

As many of you know, there is a slight problem when using the Asus P5W DH with a retail conroe.

Overclock3D have spoken to Asus, and as a result have created our very own P5W BIOS flashing boot CD-ROM.

Read about it here

Thats the BIOS on this boot-cd mate - it flashes the P5W for full compatability.

There is a beta bios floating around i believe that adds some extra features, like a DFI style BIOS saving profile thingy.

Hi guys !

I don't know if I'm the only one to have this problem, but I can't download the whole file. The download stops at 1.4Mo and that's all...

Is the link broken ?

Interesting, download is working fine here. Try clearing your cache perhaps?

Hi,

Really good news. I bought the board with the old bios version. And were i bought it they said well we can flash it for you, but there is always a certain risk. And for that amount of money i thought..... my question when i boot with that cd is it 100% save?? And can i also make an boot dvd?? Sorry if this sounds stupid, but well im a newbie to hardware!

Thanks very much in advance!

I've downloaded the zipped file but after opening with WinRAR I found that the folder is empty.

Anybody downloaded successfully this file.

Thanks.
