Intel CPU uCode loading error


While I was setting up this machine for a Trixbox project, I've encountered an error during the first bootup of the machine. My machine was an ASUS P5PE-VM motherboard,socket 775 with a Core 2 Duo processor and 2 Gigs of memory.

Solution:


UPDATE BIOS.


Go get the latest BIOS update from support.asus.com.


1. Download the latest BIOS Update. ( It is important that you download the BIOS update that matches your motherboard's model.)




2. Save the downloaded file on a floppy disk.


3. Boot from the boards Support Cd. Browse the floppy disk.


4. To obtain a backup of your latest Bios settings, type:


afudos /0filename


5. Finally to update the BIOS, type:


afudos /ifilename <-- Type here the filename of the BIOS Update. It ends with a .rom file.


Important: The machine should not be restarted while the update is running.


After the update, restart. You should now boot with no problem.
