    Default Problem with Updating BIOS

    My motherboard is H97M Pro4. I was trying to update the BIOS from version 1.20 to version 2.00.
    However, after I download the latest version from the ASRock website and click on the Windows executable
    file that is supposed to install the new version of the BIOS, the warning says that the file has an unknown
    publisher. Since BIOS is such an important component of a computer, I decided to contact somebody knowledgeable
    first before installing the file from an unknown publisher.

    Hence my question is: should I install the executable even though the publisher is not specified as
    ASRock. How can I make sure that the BIOS version that I am about to install is valid and legitimate.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Before you go ahead I would advise you to do the Instant flash method instead it's much safer
    ASRock - BIOS Upgrade Instruction

    As long as you download it from asrock wesite it's going to be safe, don't remove the flash drive until windows has rebooted
    Hope it goes well
