    Tried to get the vBios installed, no luck yet.
    Some strange way my laptop does not want boot from my SanDisk U3 Cruser Micro 4GB. Tried defining it as Boot device, let it be detected by bios (UFIU option in boot, or whatever its called). But no boot. HP Boot disk worked fine, see the hidden DOS files on the USB stick.

    As I have no other USB stick I will get a new one tomorrow, hope that one will boot.

    I did however succeed in updating the Bios to 211, tho my fans make slightly more noise, is it me or is this true... Sucks a bit, cause I liked the real silence ;)

    Try hitting ESC at post and selecting it there, instead of DEL (bios menu). Also try reformatting stick, don't use quick format.

    Its probably the software that SanDisk puts on there usb drivers. Try getting rid of it. Then when booting hit esc and see if your usb shows up.

    Chastity, Hellcry or anyone?

    Does anyone know if you are currently running the MSI/Clevo VBIOS if you have to first revert back to factory vbios and factory ATI drivers, then flash to new vbios or can I go directly to new vbios without reverting anything. Just want to know if there are any gotchas when bouncing versions.

    Thanks

    I figured out my issue. It was due to a C++ redistributable update from Windows. I did an over ride on it since it was due to that by using the command line.

    Open up your command prompt
    Change your directory to the location of the 64bin\atisetup.exe and run the parameters -install -output screen.

    LOL. That was the first thing I did when I got the SanDisk, get rid of the software :)

    The escape method worked, gonna update the Display Drivers now.

    Have you flashed to MSI vbios then to new vbios or did you just hear it was fine for others... it goes without saying.. no one likes bricking.

    So I take it that I can keep my 10.8 ati drivers then just flash directly to chastity new overdrive vbios.

    Yes, I have not done it but my friend who has the same laptop has flashed his like 20 times. Everytime he wanted hdmi he would flash back to asus vbios then when he played a game he would flash back to msi. Hes crazy i know :)
