    Hey,


    I'm in trouble.
    I tried to update my MSI 970A-G45 BIOS but I don't know what happened, it failed.
    Now I can't boot my computer...
    I sent to a technician and he said I need to find the BIOS so he can write it directly in the Motherboard BIOS chip.
    I told him to download from MSI website, but he said it wouldn't work because its made to write via DOS with AFUD software, not via EPROM writer. How can I get this kind of ROM?
    Can someone extract me the ROM file? I can't post the MSI website link, but it's in the 910A-G45's download section.


    Kind regards,
    Tiago Dias Ferreira

    With this ROM you provided me will I be able to write it direct with EPROM/EEPROM writer?

    Can you do this to me? I'm not confident of my computer skills, I'm afraid of doing something wrong and screw up again my motherboard.

    i was looking for the address he mentions and i didnt see it.

    the way i figure it out is with a backup.bin from programmer then i compare with HxD or WinHex from bottom up.

    but im pretty sure its errased as most new users do and never made a backup of chip even if its not booting.

    No I never made a backup... I had no idea that this kind of error could ever occur to my motherboard.
    I just need a ROM to write via Hotflash with EPROM writer. But the technician can't find a proper ROM for this, we can only find ROMs to write via DOS or M-FLASH, not hotflash.

    I need a ROM to write via hotflash using a EPROM writer, write direct on the chip.
    The motherboard doesn't recognize any USB stick to use M-FLASH or AFUDE238.exe
