I'm trying to update my bios. It's currently in version 0063 (the new version is 0129). I tried the Express BIOS Update but when I start the process it reboots like it should do and then goes way to fast (normal boot time). At logon it tells me that the process was successful. But when I reboot and go back to the bios I see that the vesion hasn't change....
I would suggest you to place the memory in the Channel A, DIMM 0 slot and also to remove external components before updating the BIOS with the latest version.
I hope the above information is useful.
