    What is the Proper way to use usb flashback

    I would like try to update my Maximus viii Hero Alpha using the USB flashback to bios 2202.

    After I extract the cab file do i need to rename it?
    Do I need to turn the power on to the computer?

    I am downloading and getting the USB stick prepared on a different computer since my Hero board boot code is 00

    Hi vidguys

    Have the psu switch on but don't start your pc.

    Format a USB Flash drive to FAT32 and rename the bios file to M8H.CAP

    Here is a guide you can follow.

    Highly dependent on the mobo, M8H covers the maximus VIII Hero, dont think it differentiates with the alpha. If it doest take try renaming to M8HA.CAP

    The file name is also specified in the manual for the mobo. In my manual there is a section specifically about the BIOS Flashback Utility.

    Thank you everyone for your help. The mother board took the new bios. This gives me hope that only the cpu is bad. Yeah I know bummer.
