Lite BIOS version, however there is a no way in advance to tell would be fine or not to flash it.
Because of this the general advice is to do not use it for those series.
But if you want to risk, you can have a try it, there are many positive feedbacks as well.

Ok, thanks. I'm have a ticket from support open and I'll see in the coming days if it leads somewhere or not. If not I may try force flashing to downgrade. Pray for me :LOL:

Let me know the result if you decide to try it. [and details like from which BIOS version to which BIOS version you are flashing]

P.S: Tool version been updated again to V1.18_V2 with minor changes related to Z670 boards flashing.

Update:
- Added separated version of V1.18_V2 intended for Blind Flashing.
[useful when need to fully auto flash BIOS, but there is no display and computer can still boot fine]

Can i use the UEFI Shell Flash tool [V1.18] to solve the issue i am having as mentioned here : https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?...setup-and-machine-only-boots-with-usb.376802/
The Motherboard is H170A PC MATE . Thanks for any help.
Nope, that too old BIOS class not supported by the tool,
if you want to flash it instead >>Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<<

No, you need a working computer to able to flash the BIOS.

Thanks for this tool.
I used this for MSI B350 PC Mate mobo.
I downgraded from latest bios to E7A34AMS.ALQ version with this tool and it worked flawlessly.
ALQ version allows you to downgrade to AJ0 version with M-Flash method. I did that and finally I have successfully downgraded to Click BIOS 5.

Note :
ALQ version is not available at Support page of MSI.
I used this link :

Hi I’m hoping someone can help me I have MSI z390 Mortar board that I got with my medion computer. I have tried the tool and it just shows me a series of commands does not load any bios and at the end of the list it says bios successful but it hasn’t updated. Pics below hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

It's issue with the latest update 1.18 V3

Both now are updated to V1.19 to fix this issue + other minor improvements.
Retry with the latest one V1.19

Hi Svet thank you so much for your help the updated version worked however I am getting a new error "error: secure flash function is not supported on this file." I am trying to flash with the retail version bios and have tried a few different combinations including the first version and have formatted the usb between each try. Thanks again for your help.

That's because your current OEM BIOS and retail BIOS that you trying to flash,
are build via different security mechanisms and your current BIOS do not allow flashing to non - secure/signed BIOS files.

You have to use the correct BIOS file for your board, check it with your OEM vendor.

Or are you intentionally trying to do a cross-flash to retail BIOS?
