MSI 970a G46 - Bios issues
« on: 07-December-13, 22:39:13 »

After recently replacing my ssd (had the same on before old one died from physical damage) and psu I cannot install windows 8.

I get to the prepairing devices phase and it stops close to 100% and goes to a black screen. I'm assuming this is the phase where the boards peripheral controllers ect are prepped and something is not finishing.
So I tried to use the live update feature via the utility disc the board came with, it begins checking and fails at the second phase;
"Warning: could not find suitable bios rom"

I thought maybe this was because it has the most current version. I looked up my board on the site, and the only thin I get for a download is the live update 5 program, which is meant to run in the windows enviroment not pre installation.

I downloaded the live update program onto another computer and went through the program files and to no avail....cannot find a bios revision file name or anything in the program.

The bios appears to no be obtainable other than through live update which is failing.....

Anyone here know where I can pull just the bios from to put it on a stick and use the m-flash utility?

Thanks

It is E7693AMF V2.0
I'm just not seeing where I can pull that from to use in the utility in the current bios to get it going on the install. or at least isolate that it is not the bios rev.
