Last couple of questions before bios update

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a ASUS sabertooth x58 MB.I was told I needed a USB flash drive to use to update the BIOS with. I have one now.The 3 questions left are.

1> I have the 0802 bios now,and there are 2 others a 0902 and a 1006 bios.
The 1006 bios is the latest. Do I need to install both 0902 and 1006 or just the 1006.

2>Do I use the folder that I downloaded or just the file thats in the folder.

3>Do I need to do anything to the flash drive befor adding the folder/file bios.

Thanks

1. Just use the latest
2. Just need the bios file not the whole folder
3. Not sure if it matters what it's formatted for.

1) Flash with one file in BIOS EZ flash2
2) just 1006.rom
3) format


edit>If you aren't having any issues with current bios, don't flash.

If flash is done incorrectly, BIOS chip is toast!
