    The WinFlash Utility is placed and identified on their website as the BIOS Utility for BIOS updates.

    It is unfortunately that perhaps a few folks circumvented the process.

    For something as significant as BIOS, I agree that perhaps a Release Notes document should be in the BIOS update ZIP file with the statement to make sure and use WinFlash only to avoid even a single mishap...but it seems nearly everyone figured out the process without such Notes.

    I recently did a clean install of Windows 8.1 on my 64GB T100. I installed most of the Asus tools and utilities, but I cannot install WinFlash. It tells me it is only for Asus notebooks. Of course I am on an Asus notebook - anyone else have this problem?

    There we are. Finally!

    I still don't get why you are so reluctant to make this a sticky.

    This simply has not be an issue for most users.

    As posters post, it is elevated to a more current thread status and position in the thread list.

    Yeah, but usually people start digging after bricking their devices, right?

    To be honest I still don't get your point but I am not going to bother any further. You are the boss. Do whatever you deem appropriate.

    Hey thelostsoul... welcome... just so your post doesn't get lost in the previous bickering... hehe...
    Do you know what version BIOS you are currently at?
    And what version BIOS are you trying to get to?
    Did you use the recovery partition to do your clean install or?
    Did you download the current WinFlash Version V2.42.0 from Asus' website when you downloaded the BIOS of choice?
    Did you unzip both the BIOS and WinFlash into a known file location and run WinFlash from there?
    If you provide a bit more detail, I'm sure someone will help you.

    It's simple.

    If you brick your device, the chances of recovery are slim - with executing an RMA.

    It can be done, but most folks don't have the time or patience to go through the steps.

    Since the thread topic is BIOS...let's circle back to that.

    Oh god, that's why I want to make sure poeple don't brick their device in the first place. And that's why I suggest a sticky.

    Not exactly. The thread title is more like "How to turn a T100 into a useless brick". That's what I'm talking about the whole time. Dont you agree?
