The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 is an auto recovery tool that allows you to restore 

the BIOS file when it fails or gets corrupted during the updating process. You can 

update a corrupted BIOS file using the motherboard Support DVD , the floppy disk 

or the USB flash disk that contains the updated BIOS file.

Recovering the BIOS from a floppy disk

To recover the BIOS from a floppy disk:

1.  Turn on the system.
2.  Insert the floppy disk with the original or updated BIOS file to the floppy disk 

drive.

3.  The utility displays the following message and automatically checks the 

floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.

4.  Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.

 

When found, the utility reads the BIOS file and starts flashing the corrupted 

BIOS file.

•  Prepare the motherboard Support DVD,

 

the floppy disk or the USB flash 

disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.

•  Ensure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the floppy disk 

or the USB flash disk to M3A78EM.ROM.
