When to Flash

Please only consider flashing this motherboard if you have a specific issue that is resolved by an update, for example the need to support Windows 8.

BIOS 0116 Recommended

The recommended BIOS version for these two motherboards is version 0116. We do not recommend the use of BIOS version 0120, which is the latest available at this time.

Known Problems with BIOS 0120

BIOS Update Order

Depending on which version of BIOS you have installed you may need to do up to three BIOS flashes to get to version 0116.

  • If you have a BIOS version less than 0048, update to 0048 first.
  • If you have a BIOS version greater than 0048 but less than 0099, update to 0099. BIOS 0099 has initial support for Windows 8 features such as Secure Boot.
  • Finally, if you have a BIOS version greater than 0099 but less than 0116, update to 0116.

Please note: If you are in BIOS version 0040 or below, and 0048 refuses to flash with an "Invalid Header" message, you may need to flash to version 0041 before then going to 0048, although this is not stipulated in the official Intel documentation. Alternatively, perform a recovery flash.

Applies to:

  • Intel desktop boards DH61CR (BOAMOT-410), DH61WW (BOAMOT-411) and DH61DL (BOAMOT-419 / BOAMOT-423)
