ASRock X79 Extreme 4 BIOS upgrade

Hi,

I want to buy an ASRock X79 Extreme 4 motherboard and use it with Intel Core i7-3820 @ 3.60GHz CPU.

I have read on comments on various online shops that certain BIOS versions may not work and you may need to do an upgrade.

I have never done a BIOS upgrade and all guides I found mention floppy disks.

Is it possible to do it some other way from CD or USB stick ?
Is there a step by step beginner guide ?

Please let me know.
Thank you.

  1. I did find an official ASRock guide , but i am unsure whether any old USB stick will do :

    Also , I seem unable to edit and/or delete this thread.
  2. You can upgrade the bios through USB. There should be multiple guides @ the manufacturer website to show you how.
  3. Yes , the USB thing worked like a charm.
    Went step by step just like the official guide.
    Guess i wasn't sure if FAT32 was the appropriate format , since a lot of guides make reference to floppy disks.
