Bios file too large for programmer
Hi All,

Long story cut short - got an ASUS A68HM-Plus motherboard and when I updated the bios using the ASUS tool the file did not load.

End result was Bricked Mobo.

I got a CH431a programmer and following the many tutorials tried to reflash the removable bios chip.

The problem is that the Bios chip is 8MB in capacity and when you download the Bios file from ASUS and unpack it, invariable the total size is 8.3MB. The programmer says that the file is too large for the chip.

I have used the UEFI tool program to extract the file but the size is still 8.3MB.

Can someone please advise how to reduce the overall size of the file?

EDIT - have reduced the file size but having issues verifying the data using CH341A mini programmer.

Thank you
