Hi folks! Thanks to all of you. I am glad to tell you BIOS Update was successful. My motherboard recognized 16 gb (16384 MB) with 2 sticks of 8gb after final bios update (build 2105). I wanted to confirm this for everyone who could be going through the same.
Not sure if you'll be able to see this reply since I don't have an account here.. But thank you for asking this question and thank you to those who answered.. I was in the same position till now
