I find it best to stay away from a new OS for a month or two minimum after it comes out so companies can get their drivers out and the initial bugs dealt with.

Depends. Are you flashing an original BIOS or a modded one? If its the original then you have a few options, from the Tools menu in the BIOS or in Windows you can do it from the AI Suite via Update or EZ Flash. Also you can update from a flash drive via the flash button on the back of the computer next to the USB ports

If its a modded BIOS you need to put the BIOS on a flash drive, shutdown the PC, put the flash drive in the proper USB port next to the flash button at the back of the PC. Then hold down the flash button until it starts blinking. When the light goes off just start up your computer again

Sorry for the noob question, but are the drivers for the z77-v pro the same as the ones on the asus website? I'm a bit confused as to which ones I should download.

The only difference between what is on the Asus website and what I have listed here are that mine are more up-to-date. You'll need:

  1. Intel INF Driver
  2. Intel Management Engine Driver
  3. Realtek High Definition Audio Driver
  4. Intel Gigabit Ethernet Driver
  5. Atheros Wireless Driver
  6. Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver
  7. ASMedia USB 3.0 Driver
  8. ASMedia SATA Controller Driver


A lot of those you can disable in the BIOS if you're not using them and you won't need the driver for it.

EZ Flash 2 or USB BIOS Flashback. Never use the Windows BIOS utility, way too risky.
