Our colleagues at Maximum PC have compiled a helpful list of motherboards with available Windows 10-ready driver and BIOS updates.
They're continuously updating the list with links as new updates become available.
But if you haven't updated your BIOS in years, now's a good time to do it.
Flashing a new BIOS could help you avoid bugs, make your new Windows install more stable, and support new hardware.
If your USB is not initially detected, you can find it using the map –r command.
Once mapped, the USB is typically under fs0 or fs1 and can be accessed by typing fs0: or fs1: respectively.
Restart the system once complete using the front panel and verify the changes have taken effect.* the file names will vary with and BIOS version, but the format will be the same.Before loading the files on to a USB open up the file and search for the following lines: This signals the part of the file that deals with updating FRU fields on the system including product part number, product serial number, & asset tag.If you intend to update the FRU fields you will need to modify the FRUAREA line as shown below: The easiest method to update a BIOS is to connect a USB with the package files and boot into the EFI shell.I like to keep my software, utilities, anti-virus, and so on, up-to-date; generally when a new update/version is issued. Since my computer is fairly new and appears to be operating normally, is it necessary to update the BIOS, motherboard chip-sets, and so forth? I mean, I know that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"!But I just want to be alright with either keeping what I've got or update it.
