Updating motherboard bios
A formatted USB disk First thing to do is to go to the MSI Support webpage and search for your motherboard model in the “Find Product” box.When your product is displayed, click the “Download” button.* Note: To update your UEFI BIOS with the ‘BIOS updater for New 4th Gen Intel Core Processors’ tool you must boot your system with a current 4th generation Intel Core processor installed.When the update is complete, you can replace the current processor with a new 4th generation Intel Core processor.Ignore in the screenshot that it says your BIOS is already the latest version, because that’s a screenshot from my own computer.Basically just click “I agree” and OK and the updater will go through the process, then it will reboot your computer. Windows won’t boot / the computer keeps restarting after the motherboard logo!It’s the other 2% of the time that can cause horrible motherboard bricks, so you’ve been warned.
If it isn’t, you’ll see the upper-right screenshot.A: Okay so what’s basically happened is that after updating the BIOS, all of the BIOS settings you had were reset back to the default, or changed in some way.The most likely culprit here is that the hard drive mode was changed to AHCI, IDE, or RAID.Now press and hold USB BIOS Flashback button/ROG Connect button/onboard BIOS FLBK/Reset button for three seconds until the LED begins to blink, then release.
Download the ‘BIOS updater for New 4th Gen Intel Core Processors’ and relevant BIOS file for your motherboard from ASUS official website at com/support.The whole BIOS updating procedure should be treated with extreme caution.
