My home PC has an Asus motherboard, a Z97-Pro. The UEFI BIOS is V.1304 and I was going to update it.
With our Dell machines at work I simply download and run an exe. Quick and easy.
The Asus requires a .cap file being copied to USB and then using the BIOS to install it – no problem with that, but having watched a couple of vids and reading about it the update will reset all the settings. I did not setup the BIOS so have no idea what the settings are and there are a LOT of configuration options in the UEFI BIOS. I don’t use RAID, so don’t think there are any settings that I really need to worry about, but the problem, of course, is that I really don’t know if flashing the BIOS might render the machine inoperable or affect it in some other way. One thing I am aware of is that a Corsair CPU liquid cooler is installed so don’t know if compatibility issues might be introduced.
Anyone know if there is a simpler, user-friendly way to do this, please?
