Updating bios with a flash drive

6854933580_2c8b688306_z

I have an ASUS P7P55D-E-LX that allows me to set a "Removable DEV" device as bootable (I'm assuming that a USB drive is one).

When I load the ASUS bios file onto my formatted USB drive and reboot, it just loads straight to Windows.

* Note: To update your UEFI BIOS with the ‘BIOS updater for New 4th Gen Intel Core Processors’ tool you must boot your system with a current 4th generation Intel Core processor installed.

Copy the BIOS update file on to the USB flash drive.

Community Q&A A computer's Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) is embedded software on a motherboard.

It is the first software your PC loads so that it can use things like CD drives, mice, and keyboards practically from the moment you turn it on.

There are several ways to do this but we will show you two ways here.

One that’s fast, if you do this only once per year and one that’s faster if you do it more often (of if you flash other GIGABYTE motherboards when you produce PCs for friends).

Do you always get the message: ”The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running…” when you try to run the flash tool?
