    Default Z170 gaming K4-DOS Bios file name more than 8 characters

    Downloaded the DOS file to update the BIOS on my Gaming K4 from 1.40 to 1.90 before I do my Win 10 upgrade. Booted the DOS usb stick only to find the exe file name truncated. The file name is Z17GK4190.EXE which is 9 characters before the extension, dos allows only 8, file will not run.

    After booting to DOS, type DIR, to see how the 8.3 character name is (probably Z17GK4~1.EXE). Or, rename the Z17GK4190.EXE to a 8 character name before copying it to the stick.
