Asus GL702VM BIOS rescue

Never mind, yes, this is proper BIOS dump, and only chip for the main BIOS.  Any other may contain EC FW but that shouldn't have been messed up during this issue happening.  This BIOS however is corrupt too much for me to check a few things I needed to see (Not due to your dump, due to what happened)  So before I do anything, I need to know your exact model VM or VMK etc, or you can link me to your exact BIOS download page that you know you've used previously.

the model is GL702VM, heres the bios download page link
im glad i picked the right chip
but i didnt realize it was that corrupt :c not surprised tho

Sweet bud, thanks for quick report back and I'm happy to have helped you revive your system again!! Big Grin

You're very welcome! In some thread, if you want me to find I can try, anyway in some thread here not long ago we ran into this and it caused a recovery/fix case too (I think), and after that user was able to reflash the same old BIOS again and windows updates them didn't push new BIOS to him. I am not sure if it was maybe how he flashed that time vs the previous, or maybe possibly due to windows update already registered that specific BIOS update as installed even though it could scan the now old BIOS version still. I'm not certain what happened, but I think he was able to not let windows reapply the BIOS again, at least for that BIOS round. Let me know if you want me to hunt it down.

I highly suggest you make a few threads about how to stop this on the Microsoft forums
This guy, and the guys in the two threads linked at post #2 will probably join you in protest if you send them all PM here and let them know you made a thread at Microsoft's forum

Even though it may not help next time around, if you see this happening again, let it finish the update. Sometimes it's going to brick anyway, just because windows updates shouldn't be installing a BIOS, and sometimes stock BIOS simply can brick too, but at least there is a chance it will be OK if you let it finish. Virus would never look anything like that process, at least not anything currently out there that I've seen/heard about.

i let the laptop update the bios and i let it do its thing and its doing ok! ik ppl on asus forums talked abt it but i cant bother myself to dig to find them as of right now but u dont have to look for it for me tho!
i would like to post on the asus forums but thats a nightmare of a site :C it doesnt work at all, i will try to make some threads about this, i did first post to reddit about this so i might make an updated thread there
but i will keep in mind next time to let updates happen and to not interrupt them but thanks again!

So you mean Windows updates reflashed new BIOS again? I know what you mean about the Asus site, I've posted there a few times and never got replies too, so seems not too active for help either.

I meant to scream about Windows Updates pushing BIOS Updates = Terrible idea - on the Microsoft forums, maybe eventually with enough complaints and threats of lawsuits for bricked systems they'll stop it but I doubt it.
