MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 (For EUP 2.2) MSI Slic 2.1 Mod
#1
Board = MSI K9N6PGM2-V2(FOR EUP v2.2)
Board Rev = 2.3
Model = MS-7309
BIOS Rev. = A.40

So apparently Fry's has been selling this version of the K9N6PGM2-V2 board, but there is really no a good way to tell which version you have (There is the vanilla K9N6PGM2-V2, K9N6PGM2-V2(FOR EUP), and K9N6PGM2-V2(FOR EUP v2.2). So most of you guys might be confused on which BIOS to submit/request. I had to save a copy of the BIOS to a USB Stick first and realize how the versions of the BIOS were setup.

The Fry's Electronics in Austin, TX is selling the K9N6PGM2-V2(FOR EUP v2.2) version (Item#6027288). The picture it shows is RED...but the mobo you get is Black...which is why I had the confusion.

After going through 3 different mobo's trying to figure out the correct BIOS, the LiveUpdate 5 program seems to be the only way to verify the BIOS version and update it in Windows (no download link).

Knowing this now, I had to make my own SLIC 2.1 of the BIOS using AMITool.

So I have made this SLIC with the MSI SLIC & Cert. Its a 2.1 SLIC and it works just fine in Win7!


* Backup your Current BIOS first!!! You can do this in BIOS in the M-Flash Menu *

Just copy this on a FAT32 USB Stick, rename the file to "A7309NMS.A50" and boot into BIOS (even though this is version A.40, I chose to rename it to A.50 so that the BIOS thinks its an updated BIOS)...Goto the M-Flash menu and first try the "Boot" option...choose the file...and make sure your download of this BIOS works first!

If it boots up, then go back into BIOS...M-Flash menu and choose to "Update BIOS".

Choose the File and flash!

Enjoy!

Check out this BIOS in AMIModTool and verify it yourself.

I just checked it. If you extract the ZIP file and load up the BIOS file from the BIOS folder using AMITOOL (AMI SLIC MOD Tool 1.62 is what I used) it will tell you the SLIC is already a 2.1 SLIC. See Pic below:

Thanks! I screwed up my board by flashing the incorrect bios, the correct bios was never available on the MSI site. Was able to recover with flashrom in Linux using rayer_spi using this bios dump. I got my board at Fry's in Austin as well Tongue

Sorry to bring up a 2yr old thread but I'm wanting to add SLIC 2.1 to this board BUT my bios version is currently A50, Will this still work? Just rename it to A60? I used the Live update and got the new BIOS but have not flashed yet. I can upload the BIOS and my RW report if it needs to updated with the latest BIOS.

I Uploaded the A60 BIOS and RW report In a single ZIP just in case...
