    I am expecting delivery of new computer it has ASRock H61M-DGS motherboard with 32Mb AMI UEFI BIOS
    I noticed there was already Asus slic 2.1 bios mod for this model. Member flashed via ASRock instant flash i loaded unmodded bios file into AndyP's Phoenix tool it says

    Code:
    EFI / Insyde BIOS
    Finished Extracting
    LZMA and Tiano module compression methods used
    Recovery filenames are: 
    
    H61MDGS*.*
    AS621.ROM
    Does anyone know if ASRock motherboards now have bios recovery I know it was removed on older models (Found out to my Peril :( ) And if they do what is correct name for bios recovery file H61MDGS*.*AS621.ROM doesn't seem correct.

    AFAIK, current ASROck mods are very stable. And they now support AMI EFI recovery (AS621.ROM is a valid choice).

    So I would just format usb thumb drive to fat32 and rename original H61MDGS1.50 file to AS621.ROM power on machine and it should recover bios.
    I read a supermicro pdf document on UEFI BIOS Recovery Instructions they mention While powering on the system, keep pressing <Ctrl> and <Home> simultaneously on your PS2 or USB keyboard until your hear two short beeps.

    Exactly. Pressing Ctrl and Home is a mandatory step for AMI EFI recovery.
