    Refer to read me included in each package. For ECs:
    Code:
    How to flash EC firmware:
    1. Plug in AC adaptor.
    2. Run ECFlash.bat under pure DOS to start EC flash procedure, the system will shut down automatically when the procedure is finished.
    3. Plug off AC adapter for 5 seconds then plug in AC adapter.
    4. Power on system and enter CMOS setup to check EC firmware version.

    The ECU should always be flashed with the BIOS, some packages may flash both at the same time.

    And iirc the EC is flashed before the BIOS, if not done at the same time.

    Usually the safest way if you can yes.

    Took me a while to figure out how to flash using DOS, but now that I've done it, the problem persists.
    I flashed the main EC first, then the 2nd EC, but I can't finish the BIOS because it auto shuts down before it can finish.


    Is there any way to prevent the system from shutting down?

    No, it's a hard wired safety feature.

    Looks like you might have to manually flash the BIOS again with an SPI since the EC part of the program seems to have worked.

    Can't flash the BIOS provided in artpra's link using an SPI programmer, since it's not a .bin or .rom file.
    At least the P870DM-G is heavy enough to be a paperweight :p

    Ouch, I did say back in June in your initial 870DM thread when you started this path:

    "As Meaker said, you want to be exacting in your BIOS upgrade if you take that path and the BIOS naming conventions associated with their respective models.

    WARNING: Dsanke can be finicky and I've had to crack open every machine I encountered that was flashed (8 and counting) and bricked and manually flash them to get them back to life again. One machine wouldn't work regardless of how many times it was manually flashed (some odd incompatibility), and I ended up regressing to the stock BIOS to get it to work. But when it works, it works well enough. I'm running DSANKE to get an 8086k going and it works great. I'm @ 4.5 all cores, all stress tests passed in my sig and it is seriously quiet during gaming and whisper quiet for normal use."

    It could have been that missed step when you initially flashed the system, Dsanke BIOS itself or a combination of both.

    @Prema had posted in another troubled 870DM thread that many who have problems with Dsanke don't go public but either reach out to him (or others) or just eat it. :oops: Even with his help, some machines are never quite right again.

    You could always order a new system board if it comes to that, since everything else is working as intended.
