    Angry ASRock Z97 Extreme6 - Cannot update to latest BIOS?

    When I try to upgrade my BIOS to 1.33 (currently 1.30) through A-Tuning Software.

    This is what happens:
    I go into A-Tuning, select to update to latest BIOS; the software downloads the BIOS, restarts the computer automatically, goes into BIOS, updates it and says everything went successfully. Then it tells me to press Enter to reboot. When I hit Enter it tries to boot into Windows but fails, restarts (I know cause I see the ASRock logo on my monitor) like 3 times and at the 4th try, it seems to reload the latest stable BIOS and it boots to Windows.. So to confirm I am still running the same BIOS I open A-Tuning again and it says its still on 1.30 and that there is an update available to 1.33. So, it fails.


    Have tried this two times, no luck.

    Any clues? is this normal? Kinda lost here.

    If you really want to update try Instant flash method, read the instructions on preparing the usb flash drive first
    Probably the safest method IMO, do it in one of the usb 2 ports also
