Updating bios via EZ update in AI Suite 3

Hey guys i tried to update my bios to 3402 using the EZ update feature inside AI Suite 3. All seemed fine and i even changed the logo but when i accepted the restart it just shutdown?? I left it for a while and restarted and it took an age to post plus it hadn't changed the logo and on checking when i eventually got into my desktop i was still on 1701??

I can't use the usb feature on the back due to disability and being on my own. The last time i updated my bios i had no problems and i am sure it was thru the software?

Am i missing something ........... RAMPAGE-V-EXTREME-ASUS-3402.CAP is the file i am using.


TIA
All replies to my posts are really appreciated, thank you 🙂

Never do an online Bios update, Never, to many things can go wrong, you experienced one, throw it on a stick and do it that way.

hi You can follow the instruction about how to USB BIOS Flashback

If you cannot use the Flashback method I'd recommend the EZ Flash method from inside the UEFI - you don't even need any kind of USB-Stick, a (non-raid) partition formatted with NTFS/FAT32 will do just fine.

The inside OS updating, as Detleg stated, is just ... bad ... really really bad, and most of the times not even working.
