Hi,

 

Would anyone who upgrade there dh67cf  to bios 0151 would please let me know how the upgrade went. The reason for the question I tried an older version and it bricked my motherboard and intel replaced it under warr.

 

Thank you

 

Steve

    Hello steveconn,

     

    We have tested the BIOS version 0151 and we know it is working properly.

     

    Please note that Intel(R) does not recommend you to update the BIOS unless it will fix a problem that you are experiencing.

     

    Regards

    Thanks Victor,

     

    Can you tell me why intel had so many problems with the older bios was posted on the web site that bricked the motherboard?

     

    I have a bad taste in my mouth and would like to be 110% prior to upgrading.

     

    Thanks

    Don't you mean "Our customers have tested ... " instead?

    Warning:

    BIOS version 0151 includes support for future 22nm processors.  Due to structural changes in this BIOS version, once a board has been converted to this version or later, it will no longer be possible to downgrade the BIOS to version 0132 or earlier. Attempting a BIOS downgrade to a previous version may fail – the board BIOS will remain at its current version.

     

    It could be that you didn't follow the directions as the update 0151 is for specific AA numbers or above. Applying the update to older AA numbers could toast the BIOS. I have an early DH67BL and it's not compatible with the update. But who cares? I wouldn't make the upgrade to a new processor for 100Mhz any way.

    I share your pain with bricked boards.  I had two DH67CF bricked by an update in late summer/early fall (pre 0132, if I remember right).

     

    I upgraded both of my systems with DH67CF board to 0151 without problems.  Went from 0125 to 0151 using EB update (Windows EXE).

     

    In addition, I upgraded the following other systems:

     

    DH67GD: Used EB upate to go from 0132 to 0151.

    DH67BL: Two different systems both from 0132 to 0151.  Both failed update using EB update, but F7 update with .BIO file worked just fine.

     

    All systems are operating nicely.
