Use the Floppy drive to do the bios update, much easier and you don't have to worry about anything messing up.
What version of the bios do you have? what cpu do you have now? and what cpu are you upgrading to?
1.From the DFI website it says i should be able to use the flash utility
AMI BIOS Update Guideline.
NOTE: users of Windows7 / XP / Vista 32/64bits can use Ez_flash3264 to update their BIOS & ABS II Profile. Click here to download Ez_flash3264 Ver 001 and Click here to view instructions for flashing bios using Ez_flash3264 Ver 001
2. I don't have a floppy drive to flash with.
3. according to the mobo and CPU-Z i'm using 6.00 PG which was released on 3/6/08. I haven't updated the bios before and should be stock from initial install. Right now the CPU is a AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000+ Black Edition. I'm upgrading to AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition. which is listed as a supported cpu with the latest bios update.
