I talked with Elmor over at OCN, and it looks like ASUS is having BIOS issues with their Crosshair VI Hero REV: 1.03. The original bios file for that board that it was purchased and ran with the first time, is on the Motherboard disk that came in the box. It bypasses even the CPU and deals directly with the BIOS chip.
Reddit Ref thread: https:// Possible Fix: My board has experienced this, and I will attempt the USB BIOS fix posted above. You should be able to post from disk if you can post from USB. If you can get power then you can get the flashback feature to function.... as I said to cdawall yesterday I have had BN ASUS boards where this option never functioned right out of the box.
But I check it on every board since it has saved me numerous times Thank Johan! I've been pretty busy so I haven't been able to keep up with the Ry Zen threads as much.
Figured this could use its own thread as I bet there will be more issues soon.
Reddit Ref thread: https:// Possible Fix: My board has experienced this, and I will attempt the USB BIOS fix posted above. It's pretty much standard recovery procedure for all ROG boards for couple of years now but it just proves that something isn't right as nearly all users of CHVI that I know had issue with BIOS ( and it was also mentioned in some reviews after pushing memory above 3200 ). Now the board has the VGA LED lit and a Q-Code of C6. The q-code list published in the manual does not have any codes starting with C. More importantly, how do I get the motherboard to work, at this point I can't get to BIOS settings or anything.| I would contact ASUS technical support on this subject.At their direction I returned the motherboard and got a replacement.Throughout there's even more sub sections that let you control the boards power properties and adjust the timings on the RAM.Of course, you can also use the mouse if you want as that's indeed a feature, but I think most will find themselves sticking to the trusty keyboard.The 32GB bug in Award BIOS prevents many users from using HDD larger than 32GB as the BIOS hangs at detection.
