How to update bios for p67 / z68 chipsets

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering how to update bios for p67/z68 chipsets for the coming ivy bridge cpu. I had a bunch of threads that said that you would need to update bios for it(MOBO) to be compatible with the ivy bridge processors
here is my question:how will i update a newly bought motherboard's bios for the ivy bridge cpu if i don't have any other 1155 socket cpu
question #2: will i be able to log in windows w/o updating bios?

Well if you have a z68/p67 mobo but no processor to boot it the only way i can think of for sure is to send the board in to get the bios updated i think.... I am not sure if you can just slide in ivy and update the bios.

and question number 2 no you wont be able to bypass bios if your cpu isnt recognized.
Small wonder.
