While upgrading my bios to the latest (v2.8), it said successful and then rebooted but the motherboard is now bricked. I purchased a bios programmer off ebay but the only bios files I can find to download are the 7693v2x.exe files which require to be run in windows. Since the motherboard won't post, I can't re-flash the bios with this file and I don't know if it's possible to extract the bios data out of the exe. I tried using 7zip to open the file but it can't. So... Does anyone have a ".bin" file of any 2.x version for this motherboard??? or know where I can find one?
