    Unhappy ASUS live update: Bios update 304 keeps failing

    Hello! Just got a new T100A today. I was performing updates with the ASUS live update manager and most of the updates worked fine without a hitch. However, it says that bios 304 failed.

    I tried again and it would say that it is downloading, then a screen pops up saying if you have at least 20% battery to update. I did, and continued. It then said update complete and checked for updates again but the 1 optional update (bios 304) was still available and not installed. The first time I installed it it said that the program may not be running correctly, and thinking it did, I said it was fine instead of troubleshooting it.

    Now every time I try updating the bios 304 with ASUS live manager, it does the same thing of downloading it, giving me the 20% battery message, and then checks fr updates and doesn't install it.

    I tried rebooting but that hasn't helped. Can someone please help me? Thanks!

    Are you updating with your charger connected? You should be.

    I wasn't. However, all the updates before worked fine without the charger even though I had 35-37% power. When I was updating the bios 304, it was around 25%. Should I try updating it plugged in?

    I looked at the asus website and it shows you can download and update the bios manually, but I'd prefer using the live update instead.

    Is the bios 304 update recommended? There hasn't really been any issues with my t100 other than losing 1% of charge every hour with the non-HDD dock in, and the occasional keyboard not responding when opening it from sleep.

    Yes... plug it in... then run the bios update.

    I had this same issue yesterday with BIOS 304. I went to the Asus website, downloaded BIOS 306 and saved it to a USB drive and manually installed with no trouble from the BIOS.

    You dodged quite a bullet. People have reported that updating BIOS through that method caused a bricked T100.

    Generik did you use Winflash?

    I've updated BIOS several times using the download and Winflash method with one exception... I had the BIOS file on my C drive, not a USB drive.
