ROM" no matter what FS-type, partition-size, USB-stick and USB-port you use, there is another method to flash the BIOS.
Click "Start" in Windows, and then click "Computer" to start Windows Explorer.
Right-click the USB drive icon and choose "Format."Select the option "FAT32" from the "File System" drop-down menu and click "Format." Then click "Yes" to start USB drive formatting.

Wait for a message that indicates formatting is complete.
Use a web browser to navigate to the ASUS download page (see Resources).
