Need Help Updating UEFI BIOs

I have never updated Bios just left them stock but I'm building a new pc and everyone says to update to the newist Bios, well newist UEFI. What I am woundering is I was told back in the day that to update bios you need to update each update not just the most current, so I would have to update ver 1760, ver 1860, 1960 and so on. Is this true and if so does it still apply for UEFI? or can I just update to the newist? The MoBo im getting is the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z and there are a lot of updates on the ASUS site for this since it came out I'd like to update to the newist one the 2014 one.

Any help would be great, thank you.

  1. Hi pcgaming247 this is easy to do but in order to help you i need to know the make and model of your motherboard to
    provide you with a link to the latest bios for your motherboard
  2. I was going to get the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z, but I am going to get the
    MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2
    it match's the color of my IN-WIN Case and it has an Eazy Update Bio's/Drivers tool.

    Will I have to update all the bios or just the newest?
  3. Best answer
    when you get your new motherboard ,
    MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 ,
    download the latest bios from here , it will be version 13.5 and flash/update the bios before installing windows
    here is the download page
    http://au.msi.com/product/mb/990FXAGD80.html#/?div=BIOS
    then you will be good to go
  4. When I do a flash bios do I need to make my USB/stick Boot-able?

    Then put it in the usb port and press that button on back of the board?

    Does it button flash like the ASUS one does when doing a flash bios?

    Thank you by th way for all your help.
  5. no you don't need to make the usb drive bootable.,
    on that link i gave you for update 13.5 you will see at the bottom of that the following line
    About how to flash the BIOS, please refer to BIOS flash SOP
    that will tell you how to flash the bios with your motherboard
  6. OK I see it, but when I click on it it goes to here
    http://au.msi.com/%22/files/pdf/Bios_update_SOPAll.pdf/%22
    thank you again, you helped a lot, I was worried about the bios and now it don't sound hard, thank you.
