    Hello!
    I've been fighting with broken BIOS for a while, and unfortunately i have to flash it by programmer. And now is the problem, I was unable to find .bin or .rom file cause Asrock deliver it only as .exe file. I've tried to extract it using 7+zip and universal extractor but I find myself unable to do that. Can anybody help me?

    Here is direct link to BIOS file: europe.asrock.com/downloadsite/bios/AM3+/970%20Pro3(1.60)WIN.zip

    Thanks!
    T.

    Thanks for help! Today I've tried hot flashing on another mobo, but all flashing programs says that rom file is bigger than capacity of the flash memory (which is 32 Mbit). I tried using 100% working flash, but problem stays the same. Does anybody have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
