    Default [Solved!] 970 Extreme4 - BIOS Flash froze up!

    Hey there!

    I decided to update my 970 Extreme4's BIOS to 2.60 since I might be making some changes to my hardware and OS soon, including a 3TB HDD.

    Much to my surprise, the update froze up during the Programming Main BIOS phase and after 30 minutes of unresponsiveness I started freaking out, as this is my main Audio Workstation and I can't work without it.

    All my previous BIOS updates had gone perfectly until today (the motherboard came with 2.00, I did the 2.20, 2.40 and 2.50 updates meanwhile).

    Is there any recovery procedure I can use? I know some Motherboards support recovering from a USB thumb drive, floppy or CD, but I can't find any information regarding mine and often enough a specific file name is necessary.

    Thanks in advance for any help in solving this!

    UPDATE: Solved! See reply below!

    Issue solved! Contacted ASRock Europe support and a new chip is on the way.

    Fast and simple way to solve this headache. Other companies should take a lesson here. Awesome support staff makes for an awesome company.

    Cheers!
