i downloaded the bios update for my Asus Sabertooth X79 motherboard and want to update it with the usb stick,but do i have to unzip it?
i know to stick it in the back and hold the button for 3 seconds but how to use the usb stick? with FAT? and what do i rename the stick or the file? and how?or just unzip it (cause than it is also a rom-file?
please help me as it keeps on freezing with the first bios.
If using the 'USB BIOS Flashback' method then correct you must rename the (.ROM) file = SABERX79.ROM
However, if you're having problems when you're (IN) the BIOS then you need to resolve that issue first; Clear CMOS (if you don't have a RAID array) use the Jumper method, unplug the PSU first for 5 minutes to allow it to discharge then watch this video -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdHH9KrceR0 afterwards go into the BIOS and press (F5) to Load Optimized Defaults.
I have that exact MOBO so it's easy to help you here.
