Use 7-zip, Winrar or any other unarchiver on .exe file and files from it onto FAT32 USB stick.

Sure, I did try, also I extract the content of the E7680vS3.exe using B2MB and put the extracted files in a FAT32 USB 2.0 and I just hve a black screen
Do you still get?:
Updating bios.....File not found
If no, try another USB port of the mainboard, use USB 2.0 and the one for USB/Keyboard.
Try a different USB key if problem persist.

Are they the USB keys the same brand?
Try a different one, with smaller size, also try format them in FAT/FAT32 with Rufus 1st.

Hi Svet,

they are from different brands, all with FAT32 format with Rufus.

If I not insert any usb
"Bios update is not yet completed, please insert the USB pen drive and reset system"

Usb without file EIVB.BIN
I get the message in red "Updating BIOS ........ file not found"

Usb with EIVB.BIN
blanck screen no messages

I'm going to try with the ch341a usb programmer, I will post the result

thanks for your help
Hi Svet
Finally I recover my board using the ch341a usb programmer, just want to coment that the bios chip is of 4MB size, fortunately I have the EIVB.BIN generated the first time in the usb when the update fail, the EIVB.BIN file generated using the B2MB is of 8MB and Cannot be flashed due the size.

yes that's fine the 8MB is fine for software flashing it will auto trunk
else for manual flashing it need to be in the correct size
