Updating bios with flash drive
One that’s fast, if you do this only once per year and one that’s faster if you do it more often (of if you flash other GIGABYTE motherboards when you produce PCs for friends).Do you always get the message: ”The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running…” when you try to run the flash tool?
Short for "basic input and output system," the BIOS is the main program on your computer and it needs updating now and then to ensure that your machine functions correctly.

Here's everything you need to know about how to update a PC BIOS, whether traditional or the newer UEFI standard.
In most cases, nothing will go wrong at all, but it's important to know that there's an associated risk and not to treat the process too lightly.
It's good to have a spare copy of all important files from your PC before you start.
