Follow these steps:
- If your existing BIOS version is less than 41, update to BIOS 41. Use the BIOS Recovery method.
- If your existing BIOS version is less than 48, update to BIOS 48. Use the BIOS Recovery method.
- If your existing BIOS version is less than 99, update to BIOS 99. Use the normal F7 method.
- If your existing BIOS version is less than 120, update to BIOS 120. Use the normal F7 method.
See the following documents for more guidance on BIOS update methods:
Here is some additional guidance that I usually provide. There are very good reasons for the do's and don't's, so read them carefully and follow them closely.
- Use a USB 2.0 flash disk. Do not use USB 3.0 flash disks!
- From a separate Windows-based PC or laptop, format (or reformat, as the case may be) this USB 2.0 flash disk using the FAT32 file system. Do not do this on a Linux-based PC or a Mac! Do not use the Quick option! Do not skip this step!
- Repeat these steps for each update operation. Do them on the separate Windows-based PC.
- Copy the appropriate .BIO file for this step onto the USB flash disk.
- Delete any other files on the USB flash disk (especially .BIO files from previous operations).
- Properly eject the USB flash disk before removing it. Don't just yank it out.
- Plug the flash stick into one of the (black) USB 2.0 ports on the back I/O panel of the board. Do not use (blue) USB 3.0 ports! Do not use front panel USB ports!
Hope this helps,
