Leave the stick plugged in to your computer and then restart the system.

Upon restart, enter the BIOS again using the method above.

When I load the ASUS bios file onto my formatted USB drive and reboot, it just loads straight to Windows.

Short for "basic input and output system," the BIOS is the main program on your computer and it needs updating now and then to ensure that your machine functions correctly.

The update program will indicate when the process is complete.

Your computer will automatically restart itself with the new BIOS.

If the computer manufacturer releases an updated BIOS, you'll need to flash the BIOS on your PC to update it.

To update your BIOS via DOS, you will need a bootable USB. We’re using Rufus, but you can use any of the options listed above.

Your current BIOS version will be listed under “BIOS Version/Date”.

Now you can download your motherboard’s latest BIOS update and update utility from the manufacturer’s website.

Copy the BIOS update file on to the USB flash drive.

At the same time, make a note of the exact name and extension of the update file.

Rufus formats your USB into a FAT32 file format by default, targeting UEFI or DOS system types.
