You must first unzip the Instant Flash(my preferred method) file "N3000-NUC(P1.50)ROM.zip" and extract the file "N300NUC1.50"

It is the N300NUC1.50 file that you want on the root of a formatted FAT32 USB stick. Place the stick in a native to the processor USB port and reboot into Instant Flash or enter the BIOS and use instant Flash from within.

Then Instant Flash will recognize, read, and then write/flash the N300NUC1.50 file.

I have tried several USB drives from different manufacturer and of different size with no success.  The bios was downloaded through the ASRock Live Update Ap by specifying the USB as the temp directory and also downloading via the bios Internet Flash utility.  I made copies of both of these files before re-booting since they get automatically erased.  Is there a source to download the bios directly?

Post a link to the file _you_ are downloading from please.

Also, some USB sticks are flaky when using Instant Flash. If you lay your hands on another, try with that one. Not the same manufacturer and size, preferably.

Barry, I have to ask as it happens too many times. And this has been a contention of mine with the instructions ASRock provide on their BIOS download pages.

You must first unzip the Instant Flash(my preferred method) file "N3000-NUC(P1.50)ROM.zip" and extract the file "N300NUC1.50"

It is the N300NUC1.50 file that you want on the root of a formatted FAT32 USB stick. Place the stick in a native to the processor USB port and reboot into Instant Flash or enter the BIOS and use instant Flash from within.

Hi,
I just registered to ask one thing about last Bios update release 1.50

I tried in any way to update my bios but it was not successful in any way.
I tried Internet Flash from UEFI : the procedure stopped suddenly by itseff
I tried Instant Flash from UEFI and it came back to 1.30
I tried also DOS way using a USB pendrive but also this way even if it semmed to finish the flashing procedure then it came back to 1.30
Today I tried from Windows with ASRock AppShop and afetr the file was downloaded and the computer restarted there was just a black screen.
So I had to open the Beebox and short the Clear cmos pad.
Fortunately the computer restarted after clearing Cmos but again I have 1.30 version.

I don't think I will try again without any suggestion here.


Thank you
