    Hi all, I have a maximus formula motherboard, when i bought this board from ebay, it had the 403 rampage formula bios installed, i had a e6600 cpu installed and he same set up as in my profile and it worked great. i bought a new q9550 cpu. once installed i boot up, loaded defaults and was met with, bios update ect to get full potenial ect, i went to asus and downloaded latest bios for maximus formula and rampage formula. i first tried to flash with maximus latest bios , with ezflash 2, only to get the message wrong image ect, so then i flashed with 902 rampage bios, this installed, boot up loaded defaults. ran stable played games ect ok. the problems started when i shut dow. upon restart, i got cmos err message. shut down rebooted ,message f1 or f2 (load defaults). i tied f1, booted into vista 30 secs later, crashed. booted up loaded f2 ran all day stable. shutdown, in the morning had to hit f2 now i have to hit f2 every time and clear cmos.

    Welcome to PUREOC!

    Darm, you should ask the guy about the bios on the board before you purchase it. People cross flashed Max board with Rampage a lot, when they do this which is mean you are on your own the the support for Asus. They won't even want to touch you with 10' pole.

    The good thing is you still abble to boot into Windows.
    Use AsusUpdate or AFUDOS to flash back to Maximus bios, you have to do this in Windows enviroment. EZFlash won't allows you to down grade bios version.

    Load AsusUpdate, locate bios file and don't forget to select downgrade the option.

    Good luck!

    No problem with Vista 32bit.
    Well, when you do flashing via Windows you much make sure the system rock solid stable first, if it's overclocked. Second no other programs running at the same time, limit background programs if you can. That's the risk you have to take when you do it in the Windows and that's the only way you can down grade bios version.

    I used to do it with EZFlash too but when I tried it with AsusUpdate and haven't have any issue thought. Oh btw, I download the bios file first, save it on HDD or mem stick then I flash it. I NEVER flash it via Asus site (internet), if your downloading interrupting then you are screw. Perhaps this is what happened to you?

    this is what you have to do:

    1: Download the HP Bootable USB Utility from here:

    2: Download the Boot Files from here:

    3: Download the bios of your choice

    4: Download AFUDOS Engineering Version here:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/107282453/AFUDOS229ES.zip
    http://rapidshare.com/files/107282483/AFUDOS236ES.zip

    5: Run the HP Bootable USB Utility and tick the "Create a DOS Startup Disk" option. Now navigate to the Boot Files (extract them first) and select the Folder you extracted them to.

    6: Click "Start" within the HP Bootable USB Utility and it will make your USB Stick bootable.

    7: Extract the AFUDOS of your choice (I personally used v2.29ES) to the USB Stick along with the bios you wish to flash and a backup bios for your board (located on the Asus Support site) so you can flash back if the need arises.

    8: Reboot your system and press F8 when the splash screen appears to select the boot menu. Once the boot menu has loaded navigate to the USB Stick and hit Enter.

    9: Once the DOS Prompt is ready, type the following to flash to the Rampage Bios (Example uses Bios 0219):

    Code:
    AFUDOS /iRF0219.rom /pbnc /n

    sounds a bit tricky,using widows based utility, proberbly have to replace bios chip.

    I read the as afudos engineering version will flash bios back to maximus bios, problem is i either have to press f1 or f2 on boot up. if i choose f1 to enter set up, it will go to the bios and after a couple of seconds it will just shut down, if i load f2 it will boot to default settings and load windows. run all day until shutdown then samething. on my usbstick there is extrcted version of afudos and rampage formula bios 902 bios rom, and maximus formula 1403 bios rom. cant get into f8 after pressing f2 on reboot.
