This was my fist time updating the BIOS using the msi forum flasher tool rather then m-flash. The forum flasher from the Msi forums claims a 100% success rate. Flash went smooth..so after it turned back on for a reboot I flipped my psu off. I then used the clear cmos button on the I/o pannel and turned the system back on after a few min. Went directly to BIOS and checked the system clock. It was still on time so I shut the psu off again, hit clear cmos button, got my grounding strap on and popped the battery out. Waited a few min, put battery back in, and power up. Boots up and says the bios had been reset. Press f1 for set up and f2 to continue. Anyways my keyboard was not powered on for some reason but I hit f1 as I didn't realize it yet. Before I got to unplug it from the ps2 ports BIOS setup loaded.Set up the options, save and reboot. Normal boot up shows the pci card silicon image BIOS, and 2 HDDs and optical drive attached, then shows the RAID screen plus attached HDDs. Now normally it shows the MSI boot logo then shows b2 and one or two other letter number combos and then the windows loading screen. However since the BIOS update it gets past the raid screen for the Msi BIOS and just goes off beeping non stop. Any idea what's wrong? Small Update: tried reseating the battery. On startup it said BIOS was reset, and said f1 for setup or f2 continue. So I hit f2 and got a windows boot error since raid was not turned on and I got no beeps. So I reboot go in to BIOS and set data mode to RAID and left everything else alone. Save and exit and once again I was met with continuous beeps at the same point." The BIOS update included an update to the raid Tom, so I question if the update broke RAID. Is it safe to downgrade BIOS? The flasher tool claims to make a backup but yet the tool can no longer find it for some odd reason.
