ROG STRIX B550-i - EzUpdate bios killed system

Morning guys,

This morning the EZUpdater in the systray notified me I had a bios update available. I followed the prompts and it said it was installed and would I like to restart? Clicked ok and it rebooted to the red LED of death on the MB. Fans going wild, nothing on screen.

Managed to find a youtube vid to use the bios flasher and uploaded the latest (only available) bios from the asus site, and its back up and going again.

Just beware of the EXupdater - anyone else have any issues?

Sounds like a bad flash. Could be due to a number of things, including system instability. Glad you were able to use flashback.

Yeah of course. Would like to remove ezUpdate now if I can.

I think EZUpdate is part of the AI Suite 3 installer. Run the installer from download or go via Programs and Settings and select removal of EZUpdate.

Download for AI Suite 3 installer available here from ASUS Support site. If you have any trouble let me know and I can be more detailed in my directions.
