    Default Floppy disc required to update BIOS?

    ASRock - BIOS Upgrade Instruction

    Above link says to boot from floppy.

    Will it work from CD or USB-stick?

    Thanks.

    why dont you use the windows version? it work within windows, so no need to use floopy or usb,
    for the dos version,it will work with usb, as long you make the usb bootable

    for the board in my sig,
    Actually for all 3 boards in my sig u can use a usb stick for bios reflash.
    You must have the usb drive the bios download is on set as FAT32.

    No I dont know why the board manufacturers need a fat32 source, but its allways recommended to bios update outside of windows if u can.ie after posting to bios but before booting to windows.

    nb asrock p67 ex 6 has a floppy connect but no ide,must be for "im never gonna leave xp" fanatics.
    I must see if i can get an old 5 1/4" drive to work on it,"nostalgia aint what it used to be"

    1- Without any OS; Instructions inside your motherboard manual.
    2- By DOS program supplied when downloading the bios; Instructions inside the downloaded package.
    3- By Windows program supplied when downloading the bios (if available); Instructions inside the downloaded package.
    4- By "Uniflash" under DOS; Instructions in its readme or help.
    5- By "flashrom" under Linux; Instructions in its manual or help.
    My choise is in this order: 5 4 2 3 1 :-)

    well its depend on the motherboard type

    try go here ASRock > Products > Motherboard Series
    and select your motherboard
    go to download and select bios download
    and select which one you want (windows version , instant version or dos version)
    you can view the instructions by clicking the plus sign on the "How to update" column
