Ok I'm bringing this up because I want to know if if anyone knows what I might have done wrong and right from this... I basicly updated my bios from v1.8 to v1.9 using USB flashdrive by selecting update bios plus me but when I rebooted my computer would give me error bootmgr is missing please press ctr alt delete to restart, but I then decided to reflash my bios with just the update bios setting that doesn't include me and when my computer rebooted windows would load up fine and everything seemed to work without issues... does anyone know what this means and what I might have done wrong or if my ME was corrupted or not I'm not sure what I just did but it worked I just want to understand what happened and if updated ME is necassary at this point? I should also note that i only added the bios file on my USB no other file such as the text file and exe which I thought were unnecessary

What is ME?


Do you have more than one drive installed?


The one that didn't work may have just been pointing to the wrong boot device.

Corrupted downloads of flash BIOS upgrades are a real headache but for most. a reset to factory default will force the BIOS to be loaded from firmware and not the flash chip.  That gets you back to the original BIOS and the upgrade/update can be tried again.
