Last response: in Overclocking

I have seen people mention Fat32 file system to format the usb drive to then unzip the BIOS and pass file by file to the usb drive. In windows when I click Fat32 File system it automatically goes to Allocation unit size "4096" bytes. Is that normal? Do I keep it that way? It has other options that that is the default allocation unit size for Fat32. Help Please

Should be fine with the 4096 allocation size, as long as its fat32 it will be recognizable. Want to post the motherboard model so I can verify it can be updated by USB and what file system it uses?

Thanks, I gave your post a quick read and proceeded to flash my BIOS. So far so good ;) . Going to install Windows 8 on it tomorrow.
