Updating asrock bios without floppy post dating checks in texas
In the minimal DOS environment that appears after the reboot, you run the appropriate command—often something like BIOS3245.bin—and the tool flashes the new version of the BIOS onto the firmware.
The DOS-based flashing tool is often provided in the BIOS archive you download from the manufacturer’s website, although you may have to download it separately. In the past, this process was performed with bootable floppy disks and CDs.
You copy the BIOS file to a USB drive, reboot your computer, and then enter the BIOS or UEFI screen.
From there, you choose the BIOS-updating option, select the BIOS file you placed on the USB drive, and the BIOS updates to the new version.
However, you’ll perform the same basic process on all motherboards.If you purchased a pre-built computer instead of building your own, head to the computer manufacturer’s website, look up the computer model, and look at its downloads page. Your BIOS download probably comes in an archive—usually a ZIP file. Inside, you’ll find some sort of BIOS file—in the screenshot below, it’s the E7887IMS.140 file.The archive should also contain a README file that will walk you through updating to the new BIOS.We don’t recommend using these, and even many manufacturers who provide these tools caution against using them.For example, MSI “strongly recommends” using their BIOS-based menu option instead of their Windows-based utility in the README file of the sample BIOS update we downloaded.
