    Go to https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ROG-...Desk_Download/ and select OS and download Bios 314 which seems to be the latest.

    Then go to Manual & Document and go to page 68 - 69 and very carefully follow the instructions. Failure to do so could brick the PC.

    Thanks for the screenshots, but they do not show any USB drive is recognized by the system, so you want to look into solving that.

    If you haven't already, check the user manual page 68 as xyzbird mentioned and follow steps 1, 2, and 3 to download the latest bios, unzip it, copy to a USB flash drive, connect to your notebook, and re-enter the bios to flash.

    Feel free to discuss more, but if you have any interest in talking or chatting with ASUS support in the U.S., check the support page below.
    https://www.asus.com/us/support/callus

    Also, if you didn't already know, there is a small chance you can kill your system if something goes very wrong with the bios flash (the system would need to be sent back for repair in this case and make sure you're still under warranty, otherwise, you may want to reconsider if it's worth taking that chance), so you may want to reconsider flashing the bios or wait to try it another time if better.

    ====================

    Although some people don't like the idea of flashing the bios through Windows, if you're having any problems with the bios EZ Flash 3 Utility, consider trying the ASUS Winflash utility inside Windows which should be a little easier to use and will restart Windows to flash the bios.

    I poured the BIOS file into the bootloader of Windows 10 Pro and it was well updated with Flash and BIOS

    Okay, great and thanks for the update.

    Probably will not make much difference if you are flashing from a recent bios version, but usually a good idea to reload the bios default settings after flashing, change what you need to, and save and exit if you haven't already.
    Every once in a while you can see some strange issues if you do not load the bios defaults after flashing the bios, so something that I'll always do on my end.
