Cannot update BIOS MSI Z87 GD65

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I recently put together a new system with the MSI Z87 GD65 board. I have been trying to update the bios from V1.4 to the newest V1.9 but have never had so much trouble updating a BIOS before!

I have tried the m flash option from the bios using a usb in FAT32 however the bios just freezes up and is unresponsive. I left it for 20 mins but nothing. After trying that I downloaded and tried the MSI HQ USB Bootable Tool and Bios Helper running through several of the different options but still no luck.
I want to stay away from Live Update 5 so haven't used that.

The current BIOS is running fine and nothing has had any adverse affects, yet.

Im wondering if anyone has encountered this issue with MSI boards or this particular board before?

Thanks

Have you tried clearing the CMOS(clear RTC)? This may fix the problem with being unable to update the bios.
