My P5K currently has the latest bios. I want to crossflash it with P5KR (0703, latest bios).

What to loose functionality in P5k & what to gain after the crossflash? (aside from AHCI).


And... Is it Worth to do it?

Thanks!

You loose jmicron IDE support for what i know, and you can do it also on a P5KC but you loose the ddr3 slot plus jmicron IDE support.
And if not done well also the Attansic L1 could stop working

You "MUST" only use this flag "/n"

afudos /n /ip5kr.rom

Yes don't use other flag only /n is needed, there are some wrong information that use also anther set of /xyz tha will reset your MAc address so be very careful

just to be clear:

afudos /n /iNAME_OF_THE_BIOS.rom

don't forget the 'i' before the name of the bios file

Thank you. And is it possible to flash the P5KR-0703.ROM, because I have read somewhere, that this also erases the mac address.

Yes. Thats the last version. Should be Ok as long you only use the "/n" flag.

Hi,Happy New Year!!!!

I´ve been reading a lot about crossflashing My P5K-SE with the P5KR bios to get AHCI.

I did boot USB flash drive, copy both afudos and afu236u with the p5kr0605 and 0703 roms.

I tested every combination of command and roms:

afu236u /n /ip5kr0703.rom (/x; /nr; /pbnc; etc) but I´m stuck with this message:

"rom file romid is not compatible with existing romid"

I also used the /o to save a copy of my current bios, and tested to use afudos with it , it said something like: bit block not right.

Could you help please, I want so bad to install Snow leo....

You have to use afudos 2.11 not 2.36
