I just bought asus a8v deluxe With amd 3800 /x2
but the mobo wont boot say the cpu no recognized
i can t acces the bios to upgrade the curent bios is 1.09
any clue :?:
HELP I NEED SOM.... HELP !!!!!!!

If you have access to another computer, download the latest bios and put it on a floppy or CD, changing the name of the file to \"A8V.ROM\".

Then boot up your computer and press shift+F2 (with the disk in of course) and the BIOS should flash to the version you downloaded.



does not work
i see the bios check
then the raid check
then all stops say cpu not recognized
and nothing
i have no floppy chek at all

The SATA driver is on the ASUS CD. On the CD, there is a utility to make a floppy that contains the SATA driver, and you’ll need that floppy after you press F6 during Windows install.
