BIOS question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just was wondering how you can update the BIOS to make sure you have it up to date even before you instal The OS. I was told u could by a flashdrive, but I am not sure how to go about doing that?? Do you download the updated BIOS software on a computer you have already and then just plug in the flash drive to the new computer or...... Lol I'm just real confused!

Thanks for all the help!!!!

you need a second computer and a flash drive. download and save the bios to the flash drive, then insert the flash drive into the new computer and access the file from the flash drive (through the Asus EZ flash utility in the bios).

If it were me, then I would just install the OS, download the BIOS file, reboot, and then flash the BIOS. I mean, it won't require you to format and start over, so there shouldn't be any problem.

^^this
That is exactly what I've done before
Or you can use a different computer, download the file, extract it to your thumb drive and Proceed
