    Well I got my new mobo ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe :) . Install went pretty good (still having some issues with XP as I didn't do a clean re-install). But I did run into 1 issue with the BIOS. My current version is 1010 and the latest is 1013. I looks like my floppy drive is toast as all it says that all my disks are not formated even though they have good data on them, it won't read them.

    Now since my floppy drive is out of commision, is there any other way for me to update the bios?

    Mine will try to flash from the cdrom, try looking in your manual for ways to flash and what keys to press. And some mobo companies have flash utilities that will do it inside of windows

    I have been reading posts on the net about win based flash util. but I can't find the utility. The utility that came on the driver CD requires me to DL the bios file and save it floppy. Anyone have a link? Not getting anywhere on the ASUS site.
