Instructions for Express BIOS Update

[printable .PDF version] [watch the video]

With the Intel® Express BIOS Update utility, you can update your system's BIOS from within Windows*.

See other BIOS update methods.

All BIOS update files for Intel® Desktop Boards are available on Intel Download Center.

  1. Download and save the Express BIOS update file to a temporary directory on the target computer.

  2. Double-click the *.EXE file to run the Express BIOS update.

  3. Press Next on the Welcome screen.

  4. Click Yes on the License Agreement screen if you agree with the terms. Click No if you want to cancel the BIOS update.

  5. Press Finish. Windows closes to begin BIOS update process. Do not power off your computer for the next three minutes.

  6. On restart, the BIOS update process status window displays. Do not at any time power off the computer at this stage. When the BIOS update is complete, the computer boots back into Windows.

  7. When Windows restarts, a status window indicates the BIOS update was successful.

Note
  • Update the BIOS only if the newer BIOS version specifically solves a problem on your computer. Intel does not recommend BIOS updates for computers that do not need it. You can view all BIOS changes in the Release Notes included on the BIOS download page in the Intel Download Center.
  • Downgrading the BIOS to an earlier version is not recommended and cannot be supported. An earlier BIOS version cannot contain the support for the latest processors, bug fixes, critical security updates, or support the latest board revisions currently being manufactured.
  • Before initiating a BIOS update, be sure to read and precisely follow the instructions included in this document. You can print the instructions for easy reference.
  • If a BIOS update process is interrupted, your computer can not function properly. We recommend the process be done in an environment with a steady power supply (preferably with UPS).
  • Before updating the BIOS on the Intel® Desktop Board, manually record all BIOS settings that have been changed (from default) so they can be restored after completing the BIOS update.
  • All images in this example are for illustration purposes only. You should select the correct BIOS files for your desktop board.
