Hello,I have a Powerspec PC that I have upgraded but I was wondering how to go about updating the BIOS. The computer has a B360M Pro-VH system board from MSI, but seems to have a custom BIOS not from MSI. Just wondering how to keep the board current with an updated BIOS.
Hello Michael,Yes that is the correct model but there are upgrades to 32 gigs of ram, solid state hard drives, 700 watt power supplies, and 8 gig radeon video card. I did give your suggestion a try but I get the same result. In the bios it says the version is E7B53IZ1.1M1 Looking forward to any news from your end thanks again!Best Regards
Just wanted to add to this after taking a look at the tool. It's an AMI flasher. Double check you have the correct BIOS file on there. It'll work, but it's going to do exactly what you tell it to. Looks like AFUEFI. It's going to find that file and execute whatever syntax is in that EFI file, no safety net.
Hello Michael and Mike,The BIOS upgrade that I have is from MSI, this page specifically https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B360M-PRO-VHI would say it is directly applicable to the board that I have. I understand the warnings and thank you so much for investigating this issue. Out of curiosity is there some reason why Powerspec made it so difficult to upgrade this particular BIOS? Best Regards
Hello Michael,I'm more inclined to believe most people have not tried flashing the BIOS. I'm happy to let you know though that everything worked wonderfully updating the BIOS on the test computer. I did have to make a few changes in the BIOS with the boot drive but afterwards all is working well. I believe this is the only time I will have to use that BIOS flasher because I can now see the BIOS update files from the BIOS whereas I could not see them before. Once again many thanks for your assistance I truly appreciate it. By the way, the only reason I thought Powerspec may have done this is because every single machine in the lab has this issue so it is not confined to just one computer. I will go through all of them following this procedure and check again to see if any can see the BIOS update file.Best Regards
