Thanks for the super prompt reply. Just had one lingering doubt that was more of a “general” BIOS modding related question for which you may have experience- during the flashing procedure itself, will the flashing program let me know for sure whether the procedure (just the flashing part itself) was a) a success; or b) a failure (perhaps causing an immediately bricked BIOS) ?
The reason I ask this is lets say the flashing was a failure, but did not immediately “brick” the laptop, I could then immediately reflash the original BIOS back…but if the “bricking” is only evident on restarting the computer, then perhaps there is more risk I can’t boot into a USB recovery, etc. to reflash the BIOS with the original rom file.
Lastly, I am getting an option to flash the main BIOS region or all regions and there are some other minor options too (AFUWIN_flashing_options.jpg - Google Drive) …which is better ? Also, are there some options seen here that I should be careful to enable/unable before starting the flashing ?
Read the links to understand the procedures and perform as admin CMD: FPT.exe -d SPI.bin (a full backup to store safelly)
and FPT.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin, if successful reading, in this one only a bios region only backup will be created.
Then this file if FPT.exe -bios -f biosreg.bin can be flashed, it means that its unlocked and you may use it to flash a mod bios region.
If you had read the links Fernando provided, then you already have know that AMI tools will not work as the ASUS bios security prevents modified files from being flashed, if it was possible all this guides and the alternatives i posted weren’t needed right…
Same situation prevents it in bios with EZ Flash… welcome to the mod world…
Hello! It seems that the /GAN command is missing…even though i’ve downloaded the 64bit version of the afuwin. Is there another version that the GAN command will work? When I try, it feels like nothing work. The only message there was, “Press any key bla bla bla” The description on the text was “AMI Firmware Update utility(APTIO) for pure 64bits WINDOWS.”
Did I use the wrong version?
Yes, you obviously used a not working AFUWIN version, because you haven’t read the related part of the start post.
Bad consequence for MeatWar and me: We both wasted our free time unnecessarily for you.
Don’t expect any further support from my side.
I followed the instructions created by the oldguy user with the same H87 mobo but stopped at those last instructions. I can’t run afuwin64.exe in the command line windows 10.could you show me where and how to insert exactly please?
