I just bought anew msi z97 gaming 7 motherboard and i7 4790k . I have been trying to update the bios using the m-flash option in the msi uefi bios . I downloaded the latest bios to my usb flash drive and I extracted the bios in to a folder . I then booted back in to the uefi bios and clicked on m-flash I then clicked on update bios and chose my usb flash drive . I then get a message saying there is no bios file on the usb flash drive . what am I doing wrong ? I downloaded the updated bios to my usb flash drive and extracted it to a folder . can you please help ?

1.Connect a USB flash drive to your computer. Turn on the computer and press the key as shown on the screen to go to the CMOS Setup Utility.

2.Use the arrow keys to select "M-Flash." Press "Enter" to open the menu. Scroll to "Save File to Selected Device."

3.Use the "+" and "-" keys to choose a backup folder. Press "Enter." Scroll to "Start to save file." Press "Enter."

4.Highlight "OK" if the message "The filename already exist. Overwrite it?" appears. Press "Enter."

5.Highlight "OK" if the message "ROM Image has been saved to media successfully" appears. Press "Enter." Press "Esc" to exit from the BIOS.

6.Insert a flash drive into a USB port. Go to the MSI website. Click "Downloads."

7.Select your product information from the menus located beneath the heading "Manually Download."

8.Select "BIOS" from the options. Save the latest BIOS revision to your computer. Double-click the ZIP file to view its contents.

9.Drag-and-drop the files onto your flash drive. Restart your computer. Press the key as shown on the boot screen to go to the CMOS Setup Utility.

10.Use the arrow keys to highlight "M-Flash." Press "Enter" to open the menu. Go to "M-Flash function as."
