BIOS v1720 Compulsory Update Mega Thread

Hi all,

ASUS is aware of the recent 1720 BIOS that was pushed by Windows Update as well as the complaints of voltage regulation.

ASUS provided this update as optional but if you had a different experience please post here in as much detail as possible:
-Whether you clicked check for updates or Windows updated automatically
-Exact name of the update as it appears on your system
-Date you got the update
-Country or region
-Windows version and product level (ie Windows 11 Home)
-Any update related settings you have chosen such as the Windows Insider Program
-Screenshots if you see Windows listing this update as anything other than optional

Thank you

This thread will be updated as more information is available.

Update ME first, then BIOS.

2004 is so far so good on my Apex.

Updated both ME and the BIOS 2004. However, encountered a number of BSOD after updating. Not sure if it was due to updating of ME or BIOS. Ended up rolling back the ME installation using a backup Windows image. Seems stable so far. Think better to stay off the ME updates for now.

After updating to 2004, the 1720 is still showing in optional updates in Windows 11. Is there any way to remove this?

Edit: Here is a tool to hide updates

The latest 2004 version does not allow users to roll back this time to ensure compatibility with next gen CPUs, many ME updates and optimizations are included. The description for the update should've been clearer, the team has been made aware. Thanks for reporting it, sorry it was not made clear.

I have installed 2103 bios on my z690 hetro board but my widowsm2h22 offers me as optional updatem1720 update ..i am ignoring this optional update but it is strange 2103 is much newer update which supposadly does not allow roll back to 1720


Yes, exactly the same here and I have seen other people mention it as well. Just ignore it, it won't do any harm. There are tools to hide optional updates, although I haven't bothered to do so.
