    Hi
    I am trying to update the OEM medion mobo I have MS 7502 to 1.0R. The only problem is, I made a Boot CD to go into Dos and update it but I can't see the hard drive, I am not sure how I can access the flash tool/new bios version in DOS. I can't see the HDD or anything else when I am in Dos. Only the boot cd.
    Also booting from USB seems to be impossible even when enabling it through bios. It just goes strait to HDD.
    The mobo seems to have AHCI enabled, I am not sure if this is the problem but in the bios there's nothing to enable or touch it.

    Anyone has a clue how to update this bios?

    Thank you!

    unfortunately I can't make it run from USB, my motherboard is not allowing me.
    Does anyone else have AHCI enabled in their medion MS 7502 motherboard? I think it is the reason why i can't choose USB but i don't know.
    I found a way to run the flash from CD but now I am getting the following error: The program file's part number does not match with your system.

    Do I have to modify the bios before flashing? I am clueless on where to find answers for this. I never flashed the bios of this one before.

    That error means that you are trying to Flash the Wrong BIOS for your Motherboard.
    You need to open your PC and look at the MB and see EXACTLY what MB and revision you have and then download the correct BIOS from Medion.

    Hello NoJuan999
    Thanks for your answer. I opened up the pc and saw it is MS 7502 with ver 1.2, I can't find anything on Medion website. I thought medion MS 7502 is a version of MSI 7502 and should work the same. What do i do next?

    Hi Tito
    Thank you for this.
    I found out i have
    Bios Type: Phoenix AwardBIOS v6.00PG
    Bios message: W7502IM7 v1.0B 12/26/2007 MEDIONPC LN

    When I tried to update it with v1.0R i got the program file's part number does not match with your system.
    How come?

    I found on Medion website v1.0M with WinFlash.exe version 1.0.0.1 file that can update through Windows but I don't dare to touch it as I don't know if it's for my motherboard. (I bought the motherboard on ebay without knowing to which Medion PC it belongs)

    Hi Yihetuan
    I have already said I can't boot from USB, the mobo won't allow me even when i enable boot from USB and put it as no.1 boot drive.

    This mobo I bought from ebay,according to AIDA64 the bios version I have is v1.0B, I am trying to update it to v1.0R. Can I do that without bricking the board?
    I found on Medion website v1.0M with WinFlash.exe version 1.0.0.1 file that can update through Windows but I don't dare to touch it as I don't know if it's for my motherboard.
    When I tried to boot from CD with DOS and implement the 1.0R version i got the program file's part number does not match with your system.

    I have WIN7502IM7 v1.0B right now.
    Ok I managed to get a recognizable USB to flash it. I used the HP formatter tool to make it as boot disk as FAT and then I added the flash exe file including W7502IM7.10R files to it.
    Now the problem I get when I boot to USB is: Invalid system disk.

    How come?

    I noticed I have an ACHI bios revision 01.05.00 dated from 05.27.2007 stating AHCI BIOS installed.
    Does that have to do with why I am having problems updating?

    There's nowhere in the bios to disable AHCI as far as I know. Do you know where that option is?
    I am still not quiet sure what it means to have AHCI enabled.

    Thanks for the tip
    However when I disabled AHCI i still get the same error on the USB boot disk. It says Invalid System Disk. I guess I am doing something wrong with making the boot disk. I am using the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, making a FAT drive with start-up disk and then when it's finished I add the Exe and 10R files to it. I am not sure why it is still giving the errors.

    Also noticed, when I disabled AHCI, that my Windows goes to blue screen when it boots up and restarts continuously. When I enable AHCI back it boots up normal. Is that normal to happen? How do I remedy it?
    Tried to read the link but translation makes it hard to understand what I am supposed to do. Do you know more about this?

    Thank you for all the help.

    I am not sure, I am using HP USB Disk Storage format tool v2.0.6, it only has 3 files for making the boot disk, is that normal?
