Yes, its the same thing.
Yes existing hot links are dead, because of forum changed to a different core where new naming link rules are used.

Thanks a lot. I downloaded a bios and it says vAB, and checked that older version has vA and vB, whats the difference?
Does updating vAB means i just have to flash it in one BIOS and both will be updated? or i have to flash it each BIOS(switch)?

z77a GD65, im trying to update both bios (A and B) to latest version of it.

A boots every after 4th boot.
B boots like 1 out 50.
But once booted, all works fine, no bsod or whatsoever, til i turn off.

CMOS batter is new and checked ram, 100% healthy.

Got it.
If you planning flashing, [flash 1 of the BIOS chip at the time, not both one after another, to make sure that you will have at least 1 working BIOS chip]
you can flash to the latest one .AC3: (by proper way to include ME flashing, by following the instructions here):

I don't know if the new BIOS can helps with your issue
if you are looking for troubleshooting, best open new own topic in proper forum area.

I checked some with same issue, they updated their BIOS and works.
Anyways, my bios isnt at its latest version so i think, no harm updating the bios ( i guess?) even if its the cause or not.

So ill flash this .AC3 instead of this : https://download.msi.com/bos_exe/mb/7751vAB.zip
Correct?

Thanks a lot!!

Successfully flashed BIOS 1, problem gone (seems), tested it out restarting, unplugging it for some hours and turning it on, unplugging it for a day an turning it on, all scenarios one power on and works, no boot loops.

Successfully flashed BIOS 2, cpu fan spins, and boot code just keeps changing.
No post on monitor, not powering off, just boot code loop.

Should i try flashing old bios in BIOS 2?
Is it possible to flash older BIOS with this method?

Thanks a lot btw, 1 bios working is a good result, but i still hope to make both working. :crying: :-)

if bios 1 is working fine now,
then you can try to reflash the bios 2
if bios 1 works fine with that bios, then the bios 2 should works too.

Hi,

I am trying to upgrade my P67A-GD65 (B3) with teh E7681V43 bios, both I get a message that the ROMID is not right.
I Downloaded the forums Tools94.rar and the E7681V430.rar file but winrar says they are corrupt.
I think I also bricked my primary Bios but the card has a secondary bios but I don't know how I am going to get that to kick in.
In worst case I was thinking of flash via SPI port but I want to know that the BIOS works first.

Hello I have an MSI H67MA-E45 B3 motherboard that I'm trying to upgrade from the original bios version to the most up to date version that supports a Sandy Bridge CPU. The bios on the computer doesn't see the bios update file when I try to do it from the bios update utility built into the bios itself. I downloaded the tool94 file from this thread but I want to make sure I'm using the right tool version etc. before I build the thumb drive and boot from it to run the bios update using this great tool.

Thanks!

Can you tell the link to this file E7681V430.rar?
Have you tried to re-download it?

Yes, the tool is right, but you also need the proper archive file to use it,
Do you have such too? or are you looking for it?
If so, what is the current installed BIOS version?

Svet,

I have the same issue (and motherboard) as jorge above. I've been able to download the MSI update for my P67A-GD65 (B3) but the update tool says the USB isn't bootable. Fast forward to me finding this forum and I'm trying to download the USB tool from the first post in this thread and WinRAR is telling me it's corrupt and can't open it. Is there a mirror link for it?
