Firmware updating succeeded
You can flash the bios with the implemented recovery method, I did that myself on a Aspire E5-572G.
Here's a link that shows you how to prepare a usb stick for bios recovery and here I uploaded two files you can try (renamed original bios 1.37).
If the filename is right, the power led should blink shortly after that.
Also that's strange, you used replace as I did on mine, or just deleted the current microcode (1F) and added the 24 one.
So that clears my confusion why the size of the BIOS is still the same.
Any help from other members would be glad, once again thank you plutomaniac EDIT: Also attached information about CPUID with AIDA64I don't really understand what you mean by the microcode header size being "256K" at the BIOS. The "microcode details" shown at H2OEZE is just the first bytes of the detected/replaced MC, I suppose for a quick visual verification.
From My Digital Life forum I found link to the official Insyde H2OEZE tool for updating the BIOS modules/microcode/logo and etc..
(don't know if it's the latest one) and with the help of Code Rush's Insyde BIOS Extractor I extracted the BIOS from the latest update provided from Acer.
Hello fellow forumers, Currently I have Acer Aspire E5-573G (i5 5200U & Nvidia 940M 2GB variant) and as you probably know Acer provides BIOSes for their laptops from Insyde.
