Re: [SOLVED] Frequent freezes on "Loading initial ramdisk ..."

I have exactly the same laptop (Asus N752VX) with exactly the same problem (freeze at restart).

By reading dmesg output, I've noticed a BIOS firmware bug from quite a while, but I didn't expect that a DOWNGRADE to the oldest version would solve this issue!

Can you let me know how did you manage to downgrade the BIOS version ? When I try to downgrade with EZ-Flash utility from the BIOS, it fails and tells me
"Build date is too old!!".

If I remember correctly I've run in windows the WinFlash utilty from a command window run as administrator adding the /nodate parameter as explained in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-NB2JkTCd8

You're welcome!
It's nice to know that someone else is using the n752vx with archlinux.
