    [WARNING] BIOS 213 not for T100TA

    On the Asus downloads page for T100TA there is a BIOS update Version 213 (2015.03.05). However the previous version which I'm running is Version 313 dated 2014.09.14. I can't find any release notes for the updates and I don't understand why the most recent update has a lower number than the previous update.

    Any clues?

    Asus has quite a few t100 models on different bios numbers. Our resident BIOS expert Castor should be able to take a look and say for sure but I think you might be looking at the wrong t100 variant.

    I'm really getting disturbed by the growing incompetent support at Asus.com...

    If you read that BIOS 213 info, it's for the TAS model which shouldn't even show up on the TA driver & tools download page.

    People from these forums are working behind the scenes to try and get Asus to clean and correct their support website.

    Everyone here that sees these blatant errors should be contacting Asus and asking for corrections... that's the only way these things are going to get corrected.

    HEY ASUS_USA ARE YOU LISTENING?

    They don't listen - they just post the same phrases in 95%+ of their replies. Just canned stuff that has no substance or depth. Better that they didn't even come here as I think the members do a far better job at assisting others than that organisation.

    I've got the T100TA and here is the download page...

    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download T100TA


    The new BIOS is labelled for T100TAS and I was assuming anything on the T100TA page would be good for my computer. I hope the resident expert can tell me what all this means and whether the BIOS update is OK or not for T100TA.

    thanks

    Read the 3 posts above yours. This is a big mistake on the part of Asus. We are trying to bring it to their attention but they don't seem to listen.

    Strange thing though, there is no T100TAS model support page, the T100 models with support pages are CHI, TA, TAF, TAM and TAR.

    Myself and many others have explained this previously, but for the record 'Do not install the new BIOS 213 either by WINFLASH on your T100TA or force it by anyway thinking it's the latest, and going forward don't assume anything on the T100TA page especially related to BIOS updates will work on your T100, this is a poor organizing effort by Asus, there should be separate pages for all T100 models, like the T100TAM, T100TAL, etc has. Yes this is the latest update currently but ONLY for the T100TAS not T100TA, nor T100TAM, nor T100TAL, T100TAF etc'.


    If you want to be sure which BIOS version is running on your T100 model or your confused, make sure you check the current BIOS already installed on your T100. To do that, simply do one of the following through Windows, no need to restart and see BIOS, and remember this for future references for any upcoming BIOS releases,

    1- Right-Click Start > Control Panel

    2015-03-08 13_47_21-.png

    2- Administrative Tools > System Information

    2015-03-08 13_48_08-Administrative Tools.png

    or if you want to access it easier/quicker,

    1- Press WIN Key + R to Open 'Run Command'
    2- Type 'msinfo32.exe' & Press 'Enter'

    2015-03-08 14_18_46-Bios Version 213 (2015.03.05 Update).png

    Once you have accessed, System Information, read on the right side under 'System Summary' for something like the below highlighted screen, it should clear all your doubts and tell you exactly which model you have and which BIOS is installed, TA, TAF, TAL, TAS, TAM, TAR etc.

    2015-03-08 13_45_00-System Information.png

    Do not by any means use, EASY FLASH method, or force BIOS by any method on the T100 unit except WINFLASH which works, any other way/method/wrong BIOS you are likely going to brick your T100.

    If you know your T100 exact Model and want to upgrade BIOS now, make sure to update your User Profile on these forums here as well, and refer to the sequence of the T100 Latest Model BIOS List for that particular T100 model here.

    You can download the BIOS relevant updates from the official Asus Support & Drivers page for that T100 model, which can be found below.

    Do Note, On the the below first page which is for T100TA, you will notice alot of BIOS Updates, since there is no separate T100TAS page, you will see it's BIOS updates stacked there too, however T100TA's current latest known BIOS is 313 dated 2014.09.23.


    For T100TA & T100TAS (Why Asus Why??),
    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download T100TA

    For T100TAM,
    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download T100TAM

    For T100TAL,
    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download T100TAL

    For T100TAF,
    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download T100TAF

    For T100TAR,
    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download T100TAR



    If you have any other questions/queries, please comment here or any other BIOS discussions thread accordingly in the respective 'T100 General Discussion forum section' or search the forums for BIOS discussions to find relevant threads.


    This post is also added to the T100 Latest Model BIOS List for future references. Hope this clears out any confusion going forward, until Asus organizes the Support Pages properly, if you are really reading this then, organize properly by adding separate support pages for all T100 Models especially the T100TAS it should not be under T100TA. Goodluck & All the best on upgrading BIOS!
