will the machine boot from USB?

if so set BIOS to boot from USB as first boot device and save and exit.

power up with USB in a port and it should load just follow the prompts to flash the BIOS if it doesn't do it automatically.

IF won't boot from USB the burn the ISO file to a CD and boot from the CD drive.

it does boot from usb, i can get the the awdflash exe but then the supposedly update for this board:click here shows in the file dir, but seems to be a problem with the file as it will not begin to update the bios. Ive downloaded it looks to be a winrar file extracted it then it seems to be a iso file so ive tried to mount it burn it but theres nothing inside the iso
