Hi there

Z97 Extreme6

I am on MB with 2.30 BIOS. I have upgraded BIOS once before...so it did work once upon a time.

I wish move from 'old' samsung SSD to new Adata NVMe M.2
Your Forums suggest that 2.70 is best supported drivers for migration to NVMe.

I follow your website instructions to the letter. I tried every method but nothing works

Flash ROM at F6 - fails x4. When I use the Instant Flash utility from the BIOS, it finds the BIOS on the key, I select it. It goes straight into dark screen. Reboot.
Flash from Rufus Bootable DOS via USB - fail x2. It sees the file, when it reboots to commence the Flash routine - nothing happens.
Internet Flash, I am not able to get a connection - MS update curruption. .
I tried the USB2 ports, USB3 ports, my key is in FAT32 format.

Reset CMOS to get machine back.

I do not wish to try Windows 10 for obvious reasons.

There appears to be a fault in the ASROCK flash utility. I do not wish to use 3rd Party tool. Do you have an alternative tool ?

There are other post(s) on this very same issue with same MB. See Fitfit post of May 24th 2017, almost identical.

Please tell me how to get to 2.70/2.80 so i can use ADATA NVMe to reinstall windows 10 pro x64.

Thank you
