    Great, glad that worked for you! Apparently this F6 BIOS recovery procedure is available on more ASRock boards than we know. It might be an AMI feature, AMI is the source of the UEFI/BIOS code used in most ASRock boards.

    None of the USB 2.0 ports on my ASRock boards have a red tint... do you have some lighting that might cause that?

    Shoot, we should have told bischop to use the 1.10 BIOS file, but no big deal. I bet you could flash to BIOS 1.10 using Instant flash with the 1.10 file on your USB flash drive, without any trouble at all.

    IMO, no one is forcing anyone to use the Windows BIOS update method, beyond it being available. My ASRock Z77 board had over ten BIOS updates, and every one of them had a Windows BIOS update file. I applied every BIOS update that ASRock added, but I never used any method but Instant Flash.

    Sometimes ASRock only provides one method to update to a new version, or when they provide beta BIOS updates. They all only use Instant Flash.

    The description/instructions for the ASRock Windows update method states you must close ALL other programs while running the update, which is normal. For Windows 7 and 8, it must be run as Administrator. Also, you did not say that you were prompted to restart the PC, as should happen when this update method is complete. Actually, none of the description in the instructions matched at all what you described happened while you ran the update, so clearly something was wrong.

    I did bios update on many, many other motherboard as well (never under Windows).
    Well i think i will try that v1.10 bios, but im little scared now :D

    I tried that Windows-flashing but just like i said: its logged me out after process and thats it. But i red your post right now, and ... i launched that toold on my account. That account got "administrator" privilages, but i didnt launched toold as "Run as administrator".

    Anyway im not going to use Windows-flashing-tool ever again.

    About that forcing - maybe not, but manufacturers deliberately introduced the method of update under MS Windows, because in my opinion Microsoft somehow is affecting software vendors that they are developing that kind of Windows-flashing tools to make in the eyes of users, Windows more user friendly.


    p.s.
    i got hope my english is understandable

    Yes I would be a bit scared too, but instant flash should be ok, I flashed my Laptop a few years ago with windows flash because that was all Dell offered and it bricked but lucky just like you I found a guide and brought it back from the dead.
    Well good luck if you try the latest bios, and you English is perfect..
    regards

    ASRock Instant Flash
    ASRock Instant Flash is a BIOS flash utility embedded in Flash ROM. This convenient
    BIOS update tool allows you to update the system BIOS in a few clicks without
    preparing an additional floppy diskette or other complicated flash utility. Just save
    the new BIOS file to your USB storage and launch this tool by pressing <F6> or
    <F2> during POST to enter the BIOS setup menu to access ASRock Instant Flash.
    Please be noted that the USB flash drive or hard drive must use FAT32/16/12 file
    system.
    And it might, IIRC, be on the ASRock POST splash screen too.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Well I'll be darned, your USB 2.0 ports on that board are red! Sorry to question that, just seemed odd IMO.

    Actually, at one time (Z77 days) I think red was used on some USB 2.0 ports to identify them as providing power even when the PC was shutdown. That was a new feature at the time, IIRC. But they did not stick with that, and went back to black.

    Of course Instant Flash works fine, was there ever any doubt?

    That's ok, I see there is no such markings on the killer board, I thought it was a good idea the colour coding....
    sorry i didn't resize the pic, it was huge lol
