Normally on "traditional" Flash Bios update applications dos when booting from a floppy, you would be presented with the loaded Flash Bios Update application screen and would have to manually select the bios image and initiate the flash by "OK". Also some of these Flash Bios Update applications would allow you to save a copy of the current bios image file.

Both will work as I see the autoexec. How are "New To Flashing" users supposed to know how long it takes, and when it is done with the new method being silent and unattended? The Flash process information is shown just at the top left of the screen and consists of something like this: The moment you boot the PC with new bios media ready to be flashed, the whole operation is out of your hands - so basically don't touch that media until it is finished.
In the past you booted straight to the Bios Flashing utility, where you choose the bios image, initiate the flash or if you wish, simply abort the Utility and exit - you had choices. Now when you boot with the flash utility, you have no choices which could be seen as ok. My concern is people like myself where normally expecting to interact with the Flash utility software screen, might have a peer over the screen think it's locked up or not booted properly into the flash utility and inadvertently halt the Flash procedure.
Update bios with q-flash?Join Date Aug Posts I could not find anything in the manual apart from the floppy technique. I find they fill up with dust and fluff and dirt and then don't work on the rare times you need them - such as a flash.

It is much better to do it this way: Remove the power cable from the mains supply and then press the power switch on the case for a few seconds just to drain any residual energy in the PSU capacitors.
Once done remove the motherboard battery for at least ten minutes before replacing it. Next plug back into the mains supply and boot.

Removing the battery was the method prior to CMOS clear jumpers being on the board and overnight isn't necessary Overclocking would take a month!
Sometimes that's just how it works? I know I've pulled the CMOS battery out of a P67 board, cleared the CMOS for minutes with jumper and drained remaining onboard power with the power button First , put battery back in and all settings still there time never reset, ect.
Sometimes when you are having problems, not overclocking really but it can apply too, a extended clearing of the CMOS can help more than anything else. It's not often needed, but when nothing else works it's always worth a shot!
