Updating asrock bios without floppy
There are several ways to see your BIOS version from within Windows, and they work the same on PCs with a traditional BIOS or a newer UEFI firmware.To check your BIOS version from the Command Prompt, hit Start, type “cmd” in the search box, and then click the “Command Prompt” result—no need to run it as an administrator.Any system crashes or freezes might also result in a corrupted BIOS.It’s better to be safe than sorry, so we recommend using a BIOS-based flashing tool or booting to a minimal DOS environment to flash your BIOS.If you purchased a pre-built computer instead of building your own, head to the computer manufacturer’s website, look up the computer model, and look at its downloads page. Your BIOS download probably comes in an archive—usually a ZIP file. Inside, you’ll find some sort of BIOS file—in the screenshot below, it’s the E7887IMS.140 file.
From there, you choose the BIOS-updating option, select the BIOS file you placed on the USB drive, and the BIOS updates to the new version.The BIOS update’s included README file should recommend the ideal option for your hardware.Some manufacturers offer a BIOS-flashing option directly in their BIOS, or as a special key-press option when you boot the computer.We don’t recommend using these, and even many manufacturers who provide these tools caution against using them.For example, MSI “strongly recommends” using their BIOS-based menu option instead of their Windows-based utility in the README file of the sample BIOS update we downloaded.
