    I accidentally flash wrong bios of my TA790GXE v6.1 and already try to recover its BIOS but no sucess.
    Steps as follows:
    - Format USB Flash with MiniDOS
    - Copy BIOS file into USB as AMIBOOT.ROM
    - Plug USB into mainboard, power on (with or without press Ctrl + Home) and the Flash Recovery say update failed.

    - I try some more with autoexec.bat (Afudos.exe /iamiboot.rom /pbnc /n) and afudos.exe or amif895.exe. Still no sucess, same screen as above.

    Any other method?
    Many THX.

    Many THX for your help but I just try with old, readable FDD and PS/2 keyboard Ctrl+home with no success. Same above screen.
    Before, I acidentally flash it with TA790GXE 128MB :(

    I found that if there is no AMIBOOT.ROM file in USB Flash/USB FDD/FDD, the system did not start Recovery (black screen only). If AMIBOOT.ROM file exist, it start Flash Recovery but no success.

    I had a very similar experience with a gigabyte motherboard sometime ago. The motherboard was manufactured with different version numbers. I was trying to recover the bios using version 1.0 on a version 2.0 motherboard. Once i had realised my mistake and downloaded the corect version 2.0 bios the recovery process worked.

    Are you sure you are using the correct bios for your motherboard eg TA790GXE 128 version xx
