BlueRaiderI can't install Intel Management Engine after updating to this bios. Any attempt to install leads to a bsod (page fault in non paged area). I've run Windows memory diagnostic tool and memtest and the ram isn't showing any errors. I'm using an i5-5675C/Z97 FTW/8GB DDR3 1600
erikbrownI am doing a clean install, only Windows 10 Pro on the drive at this point. When I follow the BIOS update instructions for Z97 Classified, I get the error: "The system cannot find the path specified.'fptw64' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.==========================================================. Finish update! Please press any key for restart==========================================================Press any key to continue... " I looked at the batch file, and I see the section with the cd command and variable, but I don't remember enough DOS to edit it properly, but I know it's simple. Can you advise. Thx. Erik Brown
Sajin I fixed the issue. The above file has the commands fixed so you won't get the "'fptw64' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." error.
al2jzgeIs it automatically set to "6 Pin" if power connector is attached? I just want to make sure my PCIE devices are getting the additional power.
118KillBillI think iv hit a wall.hey guys. Got a EVGA Z97 classified.Downloaded BIOS update from EVGA website, ran it from desktop. Bios Update completed fine. asked to reboot. Hit restart.... (done this before without issues - this time it was on new updated W10 install) Started to get error beeps from the mother board and all the VD1-VD5 started to blink red. PC will then reboot and again black screen. Tried to troubleshoot and fix, could not access BIOS etc after a few hours and going through the manual came across the BIOS switch, decided to push it and - Great. It posted, switching the BIOS back to 1.02 and allowed me to boot to windows.Anyway thinking that download might have got corrupted... re-downloaded the BIOS update and once again ran the update from the desktop installer.... Same issue! damn, Dropped the BIOS switch to the last slot and it booted up again and I guess im on my last life. Once it goes into that stage I have ZERO access to BIOS screen. screens just black, tried different monitors, etc etc. What led to doing an BIOS update was a new install of windows, new SSDs which led to booting up fine on some occasions and on some the BIOS cant be accessed. So I thought a BIOS update will hopefully fix it.... (long story short) What do you guys think? Am I on my last life?Can the BIOS 1 and 2 that have been nuked be re-flashed?My rigs fully water cooled with 2, 980 tis so not easy to dismantle...... I can boot fine and access the BIOS fine now... thoughts? anyone else been through the same.
118KillBillI wish if life could be that easy Sajin :) When Iv got the bios switch in any other location I get zero boot to windows or even a bios screen. I just get black screens on my monitors. Tried hdmi Display port Only connecting one. Removing hard drives Removing MB battery. Doing the rain dance :) You name it man. If the switch is in any other position I get black screens. If it’s in the one that’s working I get boot to windows and even access to bios. Wondering now if my mother board is throwing in the towel. Iv never had an issue where I couldn’t get into the bios ever before....
erikbrownWhen you talk of faulty BIOS chips, they're replaceable by the end user, right?
