1. Download the 125 BIOS file with the BIO extension to a clean USB key or CD.
2. Turn off all power to your PC and remove power cord.
3. Remove BIOS jumper completely.
4. Boot up PC with USB or CD installed or in place in the PC.
5. Watch the bios revert to 125
Had to do this myself, 128 is a BAD BIOS!
I was "lucky" to download and install this bios to a new PC just after taking it from a shop. And almost every cold (after a first power up) OS boot have lead to a freeze if a PCI WIFI card was not disabled. So, I have tried about 10 different drivers for the card without any positive result. Finally, I have decided to try to downgrade the BIOS and came across this thread which completely justified the idea. Now swtiched to 125 and have no freezes anymore.
Since the 0125 firmware that Intel can not do any more better firmware, it's a shame that a company like Intel is only doing crap firmware and can not seem to get out of this. For me still with the 0125 and just get out of there only after spending several months with no problems, I am tired of doing backtracked when a new firmware is out, perhaps I change firmware towards the end of the year if there is no problems.
Ist´s a shame, Intel.
