EFI BIOS - No longer loads any OS

brandon roszkowiak, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: I ran this motherboard with Server 2012 for the last year. After some recent windows updates, the computer shutoff and restarted w/"Windows location is missing". I tried to reinstall the OS with no success and the install would not start because of the error that there were some recent hardware changes and the setup could not find the Ntoskrnl.exe. I updated the BIOS to latest, tried different HDD, tried different OS (Win7, Win 8.1, Server 2012, Server 2008).

Amazing! a very worthy motherboard for gaming!!

2 March 2014
  • Summary: the performance on this motherboard is very fast! and affordable! the features are amazing, it's very easy to overclock! I tried its cheaper counterpart with the single PCI-E it was not worth it! This board has a bunch of USB ports which include 2.0 and 3.0 It's great for a gaming build! it has multiple fan plugins on the motherboard which you can view the speeds of since they are connected to the motherboard. runs very cool too, I love this board and recommend it!

This may help those experiencing locking / crashes in Windows

Charles R., Newegg
28 January 2014
  • Pros: Decent price, good solid board.. once you flash the bios to V2202, and get the correct drivers (see below)
  • Cons: Not really a con with the board, but was experiencing seemingly random hard locks (several per day, requiring a power down and restart) in Vista, win 7 , and win 8.1. After weeding though windows logs, forums, etc. And, after a month and a half of headaches, finally chased down the problem to the LAN driver. The driver on the Asus website is NOT for the LAN on this board. The drivers provided by Asus install for Realtek LAN 8169 (under Win 7 x64, at least). The Lan on...
