Windows 7: I screwed my BIOS -_- HELP!

I screwed my BIOS -_- HELP!

Alright, so i got the brilliant idea to use the intel integrator toolkit to customize intel motherboard (DH55TC) to allow for over clocking and fan control. needled to say, it screwed all my drivers related to the mobo. IE Video card, USB, ETC. I finally got it to work by reinstalling windows. However I want to go back to real stock BIOS. Simply flashing the update package doesnt work because once you use ITK those become the factory settings. Heres a link to how to undo it, however not knowing much about dos prompts and what not i cant get it to work. ANY help would be appreciated.

Scroll down to "Restoring original BIOS settings"

Hi! David welcome to 7F

Quote:
Restoring original BIOS settings
Once you have customized BIOS settings with ITK, those settings are considered to be the factory defaults. To change all customized BIOS settings back to the 'real' original settings:
  1. Create a bootable USB thumb drive or floppy disk and copy the file ITOOLKIT.EXE to it (from \program files\intel\intel integrator toolkit folder).
  2. With the bootable device inserted on the system, boot up the PC to the command prompt.
  3. At the command prompt from A:\, type itoolkit remove and press Enter.
Quote:
Using the toolkit on boards without a floppy interface
For Intel desktop boards that support ITK but do not include a floppy diskette interface, you can use either a USB thumb/key drive or a CD to install the customized BIOS settings to a target system.
You wouldn't need a floppy, unless you have one. Just follow the the advice in the inner quote.

Then boot into Safe Mode pick the option for Safe Mode with command prompt, and type:

A:\itoolkit remove and press Enter. If you have a floppy.

Or

D:\itoolkit remove and press Enter. If you have a DVD/CD.


Or

Whatever drive your Flash stick is in

E, F, G, H, I, J:\itoolkit remove and press Enter.


You can tell where your Flash stick is by going to Explorer, and seeing which removable disk it is in.

I believe all you have to do is go into your BIOS settings and make the CD/DVD device the first bootable device instead of the HDD.

You should be able to make one with your Image burning program.
Or:
Burn Disc Image - ISO or IMG file

Can you fit the file onto your USB?

Is the forward slash a typo? It should be backwards.

Guys, please read the instructions carefully. You need to make a bootable flash drive or CD first, how else will you boot from it?

1) To make a bootable flash drive, follow instructions here:

MS-DOS Bootable Flash Drive - Create

or here:

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

2) Now, copy the itoolkit.exe to the root of the flash drive.

3) Make sure your computer is set to boot from the usb flash drive first, you need to change this order in the bios. Alternatively, stick the thumb drive into the computer, reboot and keep tapping F12- that'll bring up the boot menu, select the thumb there.

4) Theres no such thing as safe mode with a thumb drive- when you boot from it, you'll get a DOS prompt, thats it. At the prompt, type itoolkit remove, then hit Enter. Let it do its thing.

5) The PC may reboot mautomatically or ask you to do it. Make sure you boot from the hard drive this time.

Bill, would creating a bootable MS DOS flash drive instructions hold true if I wanted to make it on a CD or DVD?

Thanks Steve.
