Hello again all. I just wanted to add some information in hopes that one of you fine gentlemen could help me to proceed. I am using the F7 feature to apply my bios updates, and did so successfully until I reached 0083. As well I stated in the 1st post this is brand new, from Newegg Canada, But it is end of life. I did not know this at the time of purchase. So Intel support is completely unavailable to me. All I really want to know is the safest way to apply bios updates, and possibly which updates to skip over. I appreciate any and all input. Thanks
Hi again. So, although no one here chimed in, I would like to update this post.. I successfully updated the bios to 0100 from 0083. For those folks who get this board (because Newegg has stock still) here is the best way for updating to most recent bios on a DZ77BH-55K
1. If you have 0057 bios.you should download 0070 bio, 0083 bio and 0100 boi , and save them to PC.
2. use a non boot usb and put the 3 bio files on it
3 restart your pc and press F2 to enter bios. load bios defaults and exit saving changes *note(you may want to save your profile before loading defaults)
4 on restart press F7 which opens the flash utility, select your usb device and start flash using 0070 1st,
5.if this has worked repeat F7 flash method until you reach 0100.
If you should have the same error I did reset your bios to defaults and try again.
Thanks to the community, I hope someone finds this helpful.
