Booting from USB is allowed, not limited with latest bios:)

Please connect your USB device, like a USB flash disk to the board USB ports,
power on, when you see the board LOGO shown,
press F8 key, after a while there will be a boot device selection menu shown,
this list should includes your USB device, please choose USB device to continue booting.

It seems as though this new beta bios 0805 has been released specifically to get the P DXXX rev D0 to run satisfactorily on this motherboard.  Selected correspondance from the ASUS tech is included below.

I bought my D935 back in April and after installing had all sorts of problems eventually often ending in BSOD.  What did become apparent over the last few months was that large files and/or intense CPU activity seemed to be the problem and it has been noted by me and others on the forum that the files were being corrupted (2 bytes missing on file downloads and large file saves in my case).

On another thread this same problem was reported in July, which ironically coincided with the beta release.  Maybe the penny dropped then??  But as you can see from the following correspondance there was not much hope held back in May.

""Dear Friend :

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.

My name is ZYC, and I would be assisting you today.

Yes, yes, that 0805 is specially to fix your problem.
I still remember you case, after i got the latest bios i want to send a copy to you,
but i lost all my personal email due to system reformat:(
Please download that bios and update.


ZYC

 

ZYC

Can you tell me what the new beta BIOS 0805 has updated? Is there any help for my Pentium D
935?

Thanks

Dear Friend :

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.

Intel also knows their Costa Rica CPU has problems with some chipset boards,
but i am not sure if they will replace CPU for you, but i think it is worthy to a try.
Not only ASUS, but also many other brands motherboards, also have similiar problems...

ZYC

 

Dear Friend :

Thank you fo! r contacting ASUS Customer Service.

My name is ZYC, and I would be assisting you today.

Sir, the designer verified the board has problem with Costa rica P-D 9xx CPU after they tested it
yestoday.
And it can not be fixed by bios update. also Intel has stopped such CPU for sale.
I will contact designer to check if it need motherboard rework to support such CPU or there is no way
to do so:(
For vista32, you don't need update bios at all, the current bios for P5P800-SE allow you finish Vista
installation (with a whole compatible CPU).

Dear Friend :

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.

My name is ZYC, and I would be assisting you today.

Sir, once the our designers finish the test with D0 core P-D! 9xx CPU on P5P800-SE,
I will feedback you with the result.


ZYC

 


Dear Friend :

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.

My name is ZYC, and I would be assisting you today.

Sir, it is not a board bios problem.
This problem only can be fixed by motherboard re-work.
But, till now there is not rework program released:(
What is the manufacturer of your CPU?


ZYC

 


Dear Friend :

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.

My name is ZYC, and I would be assisting you today.

Sir, i think your P-D 935 must be latest D0 core step one,
only among the D0 core P-D cpus have difference between different manufacturer.
If possible, you can contact CPU vendor to replace with a CPU from Malaysia,
or replace with an earlier C1 core P-D cpu to fix your problem....


ZYC

 


Dear Friend :

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.

My name is ZYC, and I would be assisting you today.

Sir, i heard of there are 2 kinds of P-D 935 CPU,
one is made in Malaysia, it is OK on P5P800-SE,
another kind is made in Costa Rica, it can not run stable on P5P800-SE,
i suggest you check your CPU manfacturer pla! ce, if it is from Costa Rica, i suggest you replace with
the one from Malaysia.
You should can find the manfacturer place information on CPU surface,.

hi !
[appologize my english, i'm french)
After update my bios to the 0805 beta my problem has been solved.
It was the same as you : corrupted filed and also blue boot screen under Windows XP PRO (but not under Linux, nor XP64, neither Win2003).
My CPU was a Pentium D960 revD.

I updated the bios in a morning and once done, all is running perfectly under XP Pro.
In the evening, i discovred one my hard drive crash, not the newest, ,neither the older so i think it cause by the bios update.
The next day, when i switched on the computer : no beep !
i switched on again : no beep !
it was stranged because the hard drive and DVD drive are initializing correctling and the power led on the mother board is rightly on.

so i disconned every IDE and SATA peripherals : no beep too !

so i changed the power supply : no beep yet !

so i changed the RAM dimm : no beep !

so i disconnected every PCI cards : no beep !

so i change the video card AGP : no beep !

so i finally decided to changed the CPU by installed a Celeron D346 : no beep again !!!

so i clear the cmos (get off the battey and alt switches) : no beep again !!!!!!!

then, i swept (black french humor).

i concluded my motherboard P5P800SE had been crash, and the BETA bios 0805 was certainly guilty !
Thanks ASUS for distributed a BIOS without information ! was it be test longly ?

So , this morning, i changed my motherboard for a ASUS P5V-VM-SE DH.
The CPU seems to work on this MB (that was the shop told me).

But i had to changed my RAM (old DDR modules, not DDR2), (old video AGP, not PCIe) !
at the end it was a very expensive evolution of my hardware !
At the beginning, i wanted to only changed the celeron D CPU for a powerful newone 150€ Pentium D960 !

I had to pay 450 € (300+cpu) to upgrade my configuration because ASUS have really test the newest beta BIOS with my "pretented and noticed" supported CPU !

i hope my new motherboard will not give me the same surprise in one year when i will change the CPU...

so, for this BETA bios, be VERY "prudent (french), precotionnous"

not my best regards ASUS !
