You'll need a Sandy to access and update the BIOS. Then you can put in your Ivy. Unless your board was made recently and it might have the correct bios....
So there is no way to update and acces bios without sandy bridge cpu becaose i only have mine 3570k and that is ivy bridge cpu.
So i will have to barrow sandy bridge cpu first and there is no way to acces bios with ivy bridge cpu?
