Hello,
 
I have a FTW K X99 and I updated the BIOS 1 from 2.02 to 2.06 in Windows but after the update it wont post any more and shows code 95. BIOS 2 with 2.01 works fine. I tried to reflash BIOS 1 from bios 2 but that has no effect. When I switch to BIOS 1 the board wont post and shows code 95. Clear cmos for BIOS 1 doesn´t change anything. It stays in code 95. Is it possible that I damaged the BIOS chip with the update? 
The CPU was not overclocked. When I activate XMP in BIOS 2 I also get code 95 but with BIOS 2 a cmos clear works fine. It seems like I could not clear the cmos for BIOS 1.
Does someone have an clue how I could get BIOS 1 back to work?

The slot listings below are counting ALL slots of 1x, 4x, and 16x from top to bottom, this is not only for the full size slots.
 
Note: PCI-E 1 is ALWAYS the slot closest to the CPU, and the numbers count up as you move down the board.

    Just reflash the old bios from within windows. Make sure you move the bios selector switch to bios 1 before flashing.

    Hey Guys,
     
    thank you for your fast replies.

    Just reflash the old bios from within windows. Make sure you move the bios selector switch to bios 1 before flashing.




    I did this with all available releases of the BIOS but this has no effect. BIOS 1 get stuck with Code 95.

    Try AMI BIOS Recovery from the Boot Block sector in BIOS 1 and see if that works or not..Then try flashing it again.
     
    Most BIOS manufacturers (Award, Phoenix, AMI and Insyde) now include an option known as Boot Block protection. The Boot Block sector is write protected, thus it can only be damaged if the flash utility is explicitly directed by a command line switch to overwrite this EEPROM memory range. The Boot Block can load the most basic BIOS functions for the simple I/O operation of ISA video, floppy drive transfers, and keyboard input. Luckily these features are all that is generally required to rebuild the entire working BIOS.
     
    POST Code 95 is PCI Bus Request Resources if that helps any.
     
    You can also Contact EVGA Customer Service about sending you another BIOS chip..The (carefully) replaceable BIOS chip is in the clamshell holder beside the BIOS switch..If you get one from EVGA, it will have the latest BIOS installed in it.
     
     
    Good luck.
