    Default Update BIOS with an unsupported CPU

    Hi everyone, I purchased an Asrock N68-S3 UCC mainboard and an AMD Athlon II X3 455 CPU, wich is supported only from 1.30 Bios version.

    Since I'm waiting for shipping I have a doubt, if the mainboard has a Bios under 1.30 can I upgrade it even if the CPU is not yet supported?
    And which method have I to use, DOS or Instant flash?
    Thanks for the reply

    It should post enough, so that you can update the bios. Update using instant flash.

    Dear kuabba82,

    N68-S3 UCC with CPU Athlon II X3 455 can normally boot the system when BIOS version is P1.00.
    Please kindly update BIOS P1.50 from below link.
    Link: ASRock > Products > Motherboard > N68-S3 UCC > Download

    And you can click "How to update" to get the procedure of updating BIOS.

    Thanks~

    Have a nice day

    Ok, thanks.
    I'm still waiting for the delivery of my pc components and I have another trouble.
    I've also purchased an amd graphic adapter even if in this motherboard there's already an onboard graphic adapter and my trouble is: there are possibilities that the 2 cards cause conflicts?
    Because I would like to disable the onboard vga but the only thing I've found in the Bios is in Advanced, Chipset configuration, Primary graphic adapter, which I will set on PCI Express to enable my amd, but I don't know if in this way in windows the onboard graphic adapter is still seen...
