Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions." - Could someone tell me: A. What is wrong with the motherboard. B. Why can't I use an Asus - PRIME Z270-A ATX LGA1151 with the i7 and 1080? (The motherboard I was going to buy when I saw it wasn't compatible with my original motherboard) C. What is a good motherboard I can buy to use for my upgrade.
