Hi,

I tried and tried again to install the EFI BIOS for the P5Q Deluxe board using LEPRG.exe but couldn't get it to work.
I don't have a floppy drive and cannot seem to figure out how to install from a USB drive.
I have Windows 7 64 bit installed.
If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Here's what I did (assuming you know Linux):
- Boot into Ubuntu (or some other Linux)
- download a windows 98 se floppy image
http://www.allbootdisks.com/downloads/Disks/Windows_98_Boot_Disk_Download49/Diskette%20Images/Windows98_No_Ramdrive.img
- insert USB drive
- unmount USB drive
- install qemu
- load qemu with the Win 98 image as Floppy and usb drive as hard drive
- use fdisk to partition and format usb drive (in qemu)
- copy over contents of floppy image to usb drive
- quit qemu
- refresh devices and mount usb drive
- copy over the LEPRG.exe and the ROM file
- reboot and boot from usb
- you should be in windows 98 (DOS) boot disk
I have no Windows XP/Vista/7 instructions. If you don't know Linux, the above will look difficult, but it's just a lot of steps. I suggest you don't play around [with EFI] if you don't have high skills. Wait a few versions (until a stable release).

Hi Steve,

I was able to install it.
I only changed very basic settings for now.
Thank you very much for your help.
