I have tried this method already, i am trying to upgrade to an i5-3570k.
I have also tried it on different USB drives of varying sizes

I used the live installer to upgrade to 1.j0 but this does not allow me to use 3rd gen CPUs.

specs:
CPU: i5-2400
Mobo: P67A-GD65 (B3)
16gb ddr3 ram
1tb toshiba HDD
asus GTX 1060
windows 10 64bit

When I get the message ''bios update is complete'' i will still be at v1.j0 and not v43

For Flashing use the exact archive linked here (nothing you downloaded earlier) with the instructions here:

  A.) Download the >>linked archive<< and place it on your desktop. Do not decompress.
  B.) Download and install the >>MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<<.
  C.) Insert your FAT32 formatted usb stick.
  D.) Make sure that all win 8 options are disabled. (Fast Boot etc) Also make sure the legacy USB is enabled.
  E.) Start the forum flash tool and select option 1. Then point the tool at the compressed archive we downloaded earlier. Then to your USB Flash Drive.
  F.) Boot to the USB  
  G.) Now follow the directions and let the tool flash
