Updating bios in ubuntu

Click on , and then futz with each of the four settings underneath it.

On this board, these were the default settings – although I have no idea why.

If you find yourself with a similar very new motherboard, the absolute first thing you should do is update the BIOS.

Especially with newer chipsets and motherboard, there will be many bugfixes released in the form of a BIOS update.

Furthermore, when I did finally manage to get Windows to boot, I was greeted with this Windows load screen: WTH?! CSM is a feature of UEFI BIOSes where the mobo will (hopefully automatically) detect whether it should use “legacy BIOS” or “new UEFI” features for setting up your puter and launching the OS. Well, don’t forget to set the proper OS drive as your 1st boot device. Finally, note that with newer motherboards, you sometimes have to attach your USB keyboard and mouse to USB 3 ports.

Yeah, it’s crazy, but that’s what happens when USB 2 ports start disappearing from the back of new motherboards!

Of course, you’ll have to copy the update to the USB drive as well.

Rufus settings should be set as following: Then, after booting from the USB drive, simply start the flash program: Then, follow the steps the flash program walks you through. I cant remember if there was another box confirming update but if there was I confirmed.

But, it’s pretty much guaranteed that your BIOS settings will be very similar. You’ll prolly want to go the Boot settings, like so: Notice that I have on if, say, you wanted to enable your ethernet ROM in order to boot over the network… Next, on the same screen, scroll down, and you’ll see this: Here we get to the really important part!

Note that the following screenshots are for the UEFI BIOS in an ASUS Z170-A motherboard.

This motherboard uses Intel’s new Z170 chipset, which is only a few months old.
