We used an ASUS Crosshair V in this guide, but the steps apply to any other E-Z Flash-equipped board.Note that some modern board manufacturers (MSI and ASRock both included) will also allow BIOS flashing over ethernet or wireless connection, though USB is still the easiest and safest method.
Note: if this option is used, the HBA can’t be used as a bootable device.
Go to Advanced BIOS Features, select the 1st/2nd/3rd boot device as hard disk.
Then go to the Hard Disk Boot Priority option, and select the hard drive you want to boot from, and then save and exit out of the bios.
what's the deal with updating the bios on asrock motherboards supporting raid?
It's a brand new system so it's not that big a deal i just have to reload windows but i want to know for future reference what the ramifications are.
