Hi..rookie here....building a new one...planning to buy the new KabyLake i5 7500.....with the 100 series motherboard(no z270....low budget).....so the manufacturers have already released the bios update......please tell me, how will I update the bios without installing the OS?.....also suggest a good motherboard (100 series....which won't bottleneck the performance).....

100 series doesn't have the option of updating without CPU , a few select Z170 boards do. Purchase a Z270 , B250 or H270 to guarantee a compatible BIOS.
Boards aren't a bottleneck.
No 100 series 200 series your asking for problems unless you find a 100 series you can update the BIOS without a processor. For about 15 more bucks buy the i5 6600 same performance.
