from what I can find DL the BIOS update you want and stick it on a USB flash drive then go into BIOS and sellect the MFlash function
Quote:
== BIOS Update or Boot 2nd BIOS From USB drive==
M-Flash function as
M-Flash function allows you to flash BIOS from USB drive/ storage drive (FAT/ FAT32
format only), or allows the system to boot from the BIOS file inside USB drive (FAT/
FAT32 format only).
[Disabled] Disable M-Flash function.
[BIOS Update] Flash BIOS via the USB/ Storage drive directly. Update BIOS ROM
chip data from selected file, which was be download from official
website and must be saved in the root directory of the USB/ Storage
drive. It only supports particular file name, which is the official
BIOS file name from us.
[Boot] After allocated particular BIOS file, system will boot from this BIOS
file which saved in the root directory of USB drive. System will skip
MB ROM chip data and boot with this particular BIOS inside USB
drive. Note: this option is for USB drive only.

If you use the MSI LiveUpdate it does all BIOS and driver updates automatically, that was how I did it back when I had my K9A2 Platinum, now with my 890GXM it comes with USB BIOS updating.

You should not use MSI Live and/or M-Flash to update BIOS-es !

Because the MSI Live may flash you the wrong BIOS or error during the flash and because M-Flash sucks.
M-Flash is not like the gigabyte utility ,it s some unfinished stuff that can give different results with different BIOS-es on different boards.
M-Flash will make your BIOS to get currupted in time and/or brick the motherboard once you do a Clear CMOS.

Use the MSI USB HQ Tool if you have the luck to have a MSI motherboard.
