Did you try to run the .exe file in compatibility mode?
Yes I did same result, sadly.
Have you tried the different bios update method?
There are 3 other methods:
All the best,
I have not tried that yet. I will do the USB bios upgrade via the BIOS (done that before) but I just find it odd that Intel recommended upgrade methode fails even to load, let alone upgrade the BIOS and was wondering if any one else has the same problem (probably windows 7 64 bit issue?) or that Intel is aware of the problem?
Hi, i've just install win 7 64b and i'm expecting the same issue.
In the event log, i've found that it's the driver EBIOS32.sys that it's not compatible and shut the Express BIOS Update.
"Le chargement de \SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\EBIOS32.SYS a été bloqué en raison d’une incompatibilité avec ce système. Contactez l’éditeur de votre logiciel pour obtenir une version compatible du pilote."
So i've chosen to update with Iflash, but I'm expecting new issues with the bios, i'll post a topic if i don't find answers here.
I see the same error on a Vista64 machine.
Tried to upgrade the chipset drivers, does not help.
I typically unzip these executables into their own separate directory and then run the setup.exe file. I have not had any issues with installing this file on Window 7 Ultimate 64-bit. What was the original BIOS that you are upgrading from?
Hum good idea, I didn't try in this way. I'll try and I could recheck for BT in bios
But you have the same OS as me and you don't have an error with the launching of EBIOS32.sys ?? Can you use the Intel DCC ? And could you try to help me with this error ? See my thread for precisions.
Edit : I've just tested in this way but still same the error message !
Yes, I can use the Intel DCC version 188.8.131.52. And I did not have any errors running the BIOS update.
BTW, are you running windows in a virtual machine mode with hardware virtualization? I do not see the file that you are referring to in my C:\Windows\SysWOW64\drivers directory.
No, I don't run win on a virtual machine but I have both Intel Vt-x and Vt-d enabled in Bios...
I have enabled them because I'll use VMware.
That is probably the big difference between your setup and mine. Please provide the specs for your machine including BIOS setting. I will provide mine later and we can compare.
Ok, I'll do it for tomorrow.
I've just tried to disable Intel both VT's in the bios but I still have the error.
Could you look in your registery in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\EBIOS32" if you have a key named WOW64 (dword) with the value 1 ????
I do not have this entry in my registry or any mention of EBIOS32.
