Could you possibly help me with a few other questions regarding the IPDT? (If not that's totally okay.)
- I was wondering what this meant, because I don't understand it, maybe you could explain it better if you know?...
"It is essential that the motherboards BIOS is at the minimum BIOS revision specified to support your Intel® processor. Consult your motherboard manufacturer’s support to ensure the BIOS revision is at the correct revision."
- Also, how can I find out if my motherboard is built using Intel Architecture? Does that mean an Intel motherboard?
Here's some info that may or may not help..
Motherboard: MSI B75MA-E33 (MS-7808) - 1.0
Chipset: Intel - Ivy Bridge - Rev. 09
Southbridge: Intel - P75/B75 - Rev. 04
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. - v1.7 - 09/30/2013
Intel Core i5-3550 @ 3.30GHz (Family 6) (Ext. Family 6) (Model A) (Ext. Model 3A) (Stepping 9) (Revision: E1/L1)
IGPU: Intel HD Graphics 2500 - Revision 9

We regularly see cases where a particular version of the BIOS is necessary before support is provided for a particular processor or family of processors. The best way to avoid this being a question is to ensure that you have the latest available BIOS for a motherboard installed.
In my mind, an "Intel motherboard" is a motherboard that is produced by Intel. No one else should be claiming that they make an Intel motherboard (unfortunately, they do). They should be claiming that they make a motherboard for Intel processors.
What you want to look for in a motherboard is that it has a socket for a particular family of Intel processors. You could also look for the motherboard having an Intel chipset.
Hope this helps,
