I don't have an answer, but I'm having the same problem. I have windows 7 64bit
If your going to use the EXPRESS BIOS , download it , Save it to your desktop , go off line than disable all of your security software ALL of IT, Than run the update , some antivirous can interfer with BIOS up dates.
No joy on disabling the security software first. Prompt still appears following the boot.
Have the same problem, also Win7 64-bit, also the DX58SO.
Is there a solution for this? It seems like there ought to be a simple one, I just don't have the know-how.
I wish I could figure this one out. I was ready to pull the plug on Vista and jump to 7, but now I'm not so sure.
INTEL should have a fix for this. Their engineers are all probably on vacation... or shaking their heads wondering why we're fussing about something so minor.
Let's see who else weighs in on this.
Have you tried doing a BIOS Recovery , and starting over from scratch???
Greetings to everyone following this post...
I've been looking around and someone else posted a similar BIOS problem, with the same friendly screen informing them that the BIOS update successfully completed.
Here's the solution, thanks to a post at one of these other sites.
In the search window above the start button, type MSCONFIG and hit return
Click on the startup tab
Scroll down the list and deselect expressbios
Later, and thanks for following this post.
After doing what you did , Did the BIOS install correctly and works like it should ??
I put the system through its paces and everything seems normal. I actually have two systems, both running Vista 64 (tuned somewhat) and the fix worked on both machines. No bootup issues, no blue screens, no abnormalities in the applications.
It seems that the prompt initialized by the BIOS update somehow ended up getting posted in the startup. I have no idea why, but a little examination reveals that the ExpressBIOS link I've turned off in the msconfig/startup tab points to the (temporary) directory where the BIOS files were stored when pulled and extracted from INTEL. The specific file called up when the ExpressBIOS feature is turned on is EBIOSPost.exe
Interesting. My gut says that there is a routine that was supposed to pop this window once and then either disable or delete the reference to this post. Why it didn't or hasn't yet I'll let INTEL figure out (if they decide this is worth their time...)
