The CPU comes in the mail tomorrow. I haven't used the MB yet but I bought in Sept before the Vishera line came out. My question is should I hook up my current athlon am3 core 2 to the mb to update the bios? I read that the current bios the MB has on it wont support Vishera until I flash the bios update.
Another key point is my new SSD arrives same time tomorrow as well as my new OS, so it will be a fresh install of everything. I also do not have a USB drive although I have been able to load by Android phone as a flash drive in the past so maybe that is an option to flash the bios as well.
I have never flashed bios in the past so this all new to me, sorry if these are noob questions
IM having trouble flashing from windows. the software i dl from the asrock website has an application that i dl and extract. once i run the app as admin it just pops up for a split second then dissapears. then nothing happens. i restart the computer and the bios has not updated.
So I got everything up and working, looks to be running ok. Only question I had is when I dl the all in one driver and utility instaler from asrock webpage it gives me some ati catalyst software. nothing i can run to install all the drivers.
