I have an asus b250 plus I bought 3 years ago with the intention of slowly buying other components to build a pc . Unfortunately , I haven’t been having a lot of financial luck and cant buy new components. After browsing this sub I ran across a guide on how to run 8th gen cpus on 200 series motherboard . I did get my hands on an intel i5 8500 from a friend . I used the coffeetime tool to mod my bios . I ran into two problems:
1. You need a 6th gen cpu to flash the modded bios (Which I cant get).
2. The motherboard does not support USB Flashback .
Some websites https://www.flashrom.org/Flashrom and etherboot.org/wiki/romburning have guides on how to flash roms on networkcard .
I was thinking :
I am a beginner at electronics modding . I live in a small town in Africa . Gaming PC Parts , online shopping and ASUS and other major companies tech support is virtually non existent. What do you think ? Is it possible?
