    Default Updating P8Z77-M PRO BIOS!

    First of all, let me say how thankful I am to find this forum. The ASUS specific (for my motherboard) forum is essentially inactive. There are dozens of months to years posts on it that have never been replied to.
    I'm just an old retired guy, with no technical background but pretty mechanical, that wanted a new and fast PC, so I built one memorial day weekend 2012. Besides the ASUS board, Intel Ivy Bridge 3547K CPU and a Kingston 120 GB SSD. The Intel integrated 4000 graphics have been all I've needed.
    I flashed my BIOS to v1780 quite a while ago, it is now up to v2105. Do you subscribe to the recommendation that if everything is working, don't update? My second request is if someone could/would explain the procedure to copy my motherboards settings and how to restore them if I had to.
    Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum.

    From page 69 in your motherboard user manual:
    2.8.2 ASUS O.C. Profile
    This item allows you to store or load multiple BIOS settings.
    The Setup Profile Status items show Not Installed if no profile is created.

    Allows you to input the label of the setup profile.
    Save to Profile
    Allows you to save the current BIOS settings to the BIOS Flash, and create a profile. Key in a profile number from one to eight, press <Enter>, and then select Yes
    Load from Profile
    Allows you to load the previous BIOS settings saved in the BIOS Flash. Key in the profile number that saved your CMOS settings, press <Enter>, and then select Yes

    • DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS to prevent the system boot failure!
    • We recommend that you update the BIOS file only coming from the same memory/CPU configuration and BIOS version
    Section 2.1.2 ASUS EZ Flash 2 might have information about saving your bios to an external flash drive.
