First, do you have a USB flash drive to use?

The safest option, if you can't use instant flash, due to the bios revision being too old, is to use a bootable USB to do a DOS based bios flash. 

If you need help making a bootable USB flash drive just ask.

I do not recommend the Windows based update, it is the least safe method. Any instability or issue during the process and your board will be bricked.

The DOS method is your best bet if your BIOS version does not support instant flash. Once you have updated then instant flash will become available (it has been added) and will make things easier the next time you need to update.

ASRock made a video here that shows the basic steps for all the different methods. The one you want is either instant flash or DOS.
