Updating bios through cd

Press Window Key R to access the “RUN” command window.

I don't want to brick the borad trying to do it.

I have a bad Hardrive and don't want to have to reinstall an os just to do it. I don't suggest updating a BIOS from within Windows even under the best of circumstances.

Asus BIOS Updating Procedure Edited by DJBPace07, 17 April 2009 - PM. You can try running the exe from within the Live CD environment, but there are no guarantees. Updating the BIOS is a bit risky under the best conditions.

If the BIOS updating program is a stand alone application and the BIOS update itself are both included in the executable, it is possible that the Live CD can work. Why would you want to add to the risk by even trying to update from a "live CD" ???

The simplest way to update a BIOS is via USB, and today in the Ge Force Garage we'll show you how. To update your BIOS, first check your currently installed BIOS version.

It’s easy to determine your currently installed BIOS.

Remember to back up your existing BIOS before beginning.

This will be handy if you run into issues during the update or if you do not like the performance or features that come with the updated BIOS. Ultimately it will be up to you to decide if your system will benefit from an updated BIOS.

Like most things, a strong foundation is key to the efficiency of any system and updating your motherboard’s basic input/output system (BIOS) can do everything from adding new features and functions, support for new CPUs, squashing bugs, refreshing a corrupted UEFI environment, and much more.

The update utility is often part of the download package from the manufacturer. If one is not available, you can still use the USB stick to update your BIOS in an UEFI environment, if such is a feature of your motherboard.
