          I ran into the same thing this morning.  My board is DZ77BH-55k, but the confusion is the same.

           

          I tried the first one first, the EB.EXE one.  The computer shutdown and rebooted quickly into Win7.  I got the message that the update failed.  I checked and I still had the old BIOS.

           

          Then I tried the second file (the WINPE64 one) and I read the instructions.  It said to kill all other programs before beginning.  I did so and it worked. It shut down, then I got a screen telling me of all the things it was installing. This took several minutes.  Then it rebooted Win7. Mission success.

           

          I don't know if killing the other programs first made it work.  I would guess using the second file made it work.  Any way it worked and I didn't screw up the computer.

           

          My suggestion is use the second one and kill any other programs first.
