How to update the BIOS?

There are 2 methods for updating the BIOS using Instant Flash.

Method 1:

  1. Save the BIOS files on a device such as USB disk (FAT32 format), hard disk (FAT32 format) and floppy drive.
  2. Press during POST to get into BIOS setup menu.
  3. Select the utility under [Smart] menu to execute it.
  4. ASRock Instant Flash will automatically detect all devices and only list those BIOS versions which are suitable for your motherboard.
  5. Select the suitable BIOS version and flash.

Method 2:

  1. Save the BIOS files on a device such as USB disk (FAT32 format), hard disk (FAT32 format) and floppy drive.
  2. Press when you see this (or similar) page.
  3. Select the suitable BIOS version and flash.

Notice: If you encounter problems while updating the new BIOS, DO NOT turn off your system since this corrupt BIOS might cause your system failed to boot up. Just repeat the process, and if the problem still persists, update the original BIOS file. If the Flash Memory Writer utility was not able to successfully update a complete BIOS file, your system may not be able to boot up. If this happens, your system will need service.

Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
