2. Select your MSI BIOS File ["Load MSI BIOS File]
load_1a.png

3. Select your USB key drive [from drop down menu, if the USB key is not listed click "Refresh" button]

4. Click "Create USB Flash key" and wait to finish.

Next reboot computer,
and ensure in BIOS Setup:
UEFI Boot is allowed,
and Secure Boot disabled.

After exit from BIOS Setup while computer is booting:
You can press F11 during BIOS post/logo screen, then when BBS popup after a while,
choose the prepared USB key with UEFI in front as name.
i.e: choose to boot from:
UEFI USB your drive

then wait, and you will see the BIOS version shown that is going to be flashed.
and you can press a key to proceed with flashing.
If you don't want to proceed with flashing,
you can press "q" to abort at that point.

when flashing starts,
wait patiently to finish,
ensure successfully message on the screen then reboot or power off the computer.


Optional feature: [Patch AMD BIOS for CP_Flash]
This will allow cross-platform flashing to 32MB BIOS from 16MB BIOS for boards with 256Mbit BIOS chip.
The tool will auto detect if the BIOS support such feature and then will Enable that option.
[in a case when board was flashed to the wrong BIOS to help, restore correct BIOS]

Or use special version for Blind Flashing only:
(It's useful when need to flash BIOS without display [but the PC can still boot and works fine] and performs auto flashing)
For Blind Flashing only: Forum UEFI Shell Flash tool [V1.32]

Short instructions for for Blind Flashing:
[prepare the USB key for flashing,[use the same steps to prepare it as above] then shutdown the PC,
and disconnect temporary any other storages except that USB key that will be used for flashing]
Then turn on PC and wait auto flashing to start and finish automatically.
[when blind flashing is complete the PC will auto shutdown,
then you can remove the USB key and reconnect the rest of your storages and turn it on]


Note1: Be sure to place only one BIOS file on the USB key at the time, before proceed with flashing.
Note2: Due BIOS flashing nature, (which consider every flashing as potential dangerous)
Flash and use at own risk as usual.

Note3: You can use it to downgrade the BIOS too.
Note4: You can cross-platform flash back to correct BIOS 32MB bios. (if the board been flashed to the wrong BIOS by mistake)

EDIT: A video how to use guide made by user efmled:

I wanted to Thank you Svet very much! You saved many nerves to lot of people! Tool is great! I managed to downgrade my A.90 BIOS on X470 Gaming Plus MB to A.60.

E0? E3? Those are unknown to me
Can you tell full BIOS ID of those?



You mean dual BIOS?



I'm confused what is E0 , E3 and what you call "slot. Can you clarify better?
Dual slot == dual BIOS, with a switch to select one or the other.

As for E3 versus E0 - the MSI X570 GODLIKE UEFI fw versions come in major version like follows: 7C34v1E. The 1E is the designation for the major revision, with a following number (1,2,3, etc.) for Beta and 0 for the final release.

Currently, for example, there is a new 7C34v1F1 (Beta version), but the last stable release is 7C34v1E, which, when extracted, has a name E7C34AMS.1E0.

The actual file names are as in my screenshot:

01.png

When I sent a message to MSI support, they automatically generated an RMA for the board, but want 15-30 days turnaround, and I don't have a backup system and cannot afford the downtime right now. So, I was hoping that your utility might offer some recourse to allow me to get both 'BIOS' working correctly.

The worst part is that I used the latest MSI Center 1.0.24 to download and apply the E7C34AMS.1E0 fw update over E7C34AMS.1E3, which rebooted the machine and ran the M-Flash utility as it is supposed to - but it froze for well over 3 hours, as mentioned, and I had no recourse but to reboot (I had some really bad thunderstorms moving into the area and I decided to take my chances with the UEFI fw update being incomplete versus leaving my computer on during the storms).

I hope that helps explain what I mean. If I need to provide more info, please let me know and I will.
 
Hello dear SVET and thanks for all the help. I have purchased your tool for set up EC parameters. Now i got some problems with mainboard. I got B450 bios on X470 board and its max version. Is there some tool to apply it to X470? I have purchased the board with this bios. Board is MS-7B79 and its X470 gaming plus max. Thanks and sorry for my english.

You can use the tool in this topic to cross-flash and re-flash to correct BIOS if that's what you mean,
direct link:
and instructions are in the 1st post.

How is that on h110 mobo when using afudos there is an error when /me command is issued ?

It says somthing like "this bios does not support entire me flashing"

I have no problems flashing me region as well as bios one using m-flash or FPT tool or even Flashrom under linux but afudos always fails with me region. Why is that?
 
This tool is a lifesaver for me and it works on MSI Z370 Gaming M5 (7B58) like a charm. Did manage to flash my mobo with latest beta bios (7B58v1B2). The genuine M-flash tool stops working and don't know why. Just a black screen after reboot and so on. Stupid boot loop black screen restart crap thing... only Cmos reset helped but no flash then. This little software did the trick an reminded me the times when the easiest, best and simplest way that always works was the DOS method :).

Big thanks!
 
Hi there,
I have a Medion PC with an MSI z490 gaming edge wifi mainboard (MS-7C79 ver.1.1) with an OEM firmware from Medion (E7C79W0X.205) can I replace this version with the UEFI v1.16 tool to the retail version? The new BIOS version supports Win11 according to the homepage. (Version E7C79IMS.1A0) Thank you very much !!

If you want to cross-flash at own risk, yes you can. Else check with your OEM vendor for updates.

If you plan to use the tool for cross-flashing,
for this particular case to match the ME-FW version,
do a step update as follows:
1st Update with the forum flasher tool to BIOS version 1.3:

and when its done, do a 2nd flashing this time with M-Flash to the latest version 1.A:
 
Hello Svet!

Thank you for your reply! Can I also use the version https://download.msi.com/bos_exe/mb/7C79v16.zip with the MSI UEFI Flashtool V1.16? I have installed an 11th Gen Intel Processor (11900KF). My concerns are that afterwards with version 1.3 the CPU is no longer recognized. I will give my OEM vendor another chance to make improvements. But if that doesn't help, then I have to install this retail bios myself! Is the MAC address WLAN + LAN saved on another chip? Best regards Mario
 
That tool works for laptop @Svet
I need to upgrade to 60H version for support EFI

Thanks

Hello Mario,

I have the same pc like you, with the same problem. Can you tell me if the cross flash works with the tool?

thanks!
 
@Svet

Can you please help me what to do? I have the same problem as Mario, above here.
I have a pre installed mpg z490 gaming edge wifi. But im missing a lot of features on this MB. So I want It to flash like its an normal board with the original MSI bios software.

If I want to update the bios like the normal way, the files wont show up, wich is a common problem because of the pre installed bios/medion software.
Thanks in advance
 
You can flash/cross-flash to desired BIOS [at own risk]
just make sure the new BIOS will support your hardware.

Alright thanks @Svet

So from (z490 gaming edge wifi) current bios E7C79W0X.205 to newer version 7C79v18 (for z490 gaming edge wifi), should be possible with the flashtool v1.16? ''yes at my own risk.''
z490 bios driver
or should i first cross flash to v13? (as you mentioned above to supermario), and from there on to the newer ones? The latest one, version 1A is not relevant for me, because i dont use win11.
 
Check if your CPU used will be supported by that new BIOS.

Thanks for you fast reply @Svet! Really appreciate that!

according to this page from MSI, my i9 11900K is supported from version 7C79v16. That means that it minimal requires this version, and the later ones are also working (i.e v18) i guess?

So do i need to perform a crossflash to v16 first, and after that a normal flash to V18?
