I upgraded my i5 2500K to an I7 3770. I downloaded the bios (7672VB0) and unzipped it to a folder, which I then pasted it to my freshly formatted flash drive (4 GB).
When I rebooted and got into the bios, I went to the "M-Flash" section. I moved down to "Select UEFI file to flash" and hit <enter>. What showed up next on my screen was "FS0: Sandisk Cruzer 7.01. I hit <enter> again and the message popped up "There isn't any bios file in this USB key (Root folder) - Please copy bios file to this USB key (Root folder)"
Can anyone help, please?

Since everyone seems to be stumped on this, could I send it to MSI and have them update the bios (if they can/would), or just get another motherboard?

Just put the BIOS file into the root folder. Not the whole extracted folder.

That is not intended for M-Flash flashing...
Also what you used B0 and not B2?
And what is your current BIOS version installed?

You need special archive for this, [to switch between different BIOS bases]
you can use this one with valcheck.com:

Use it with >>Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<<
with msihq tool, mode1 and pointing to valcheck_E7672IMS.B20.rar

I guess it's a moot point now.
Once again I was doing an online chat with a MSI tech. He told me to download, unzip, and run the file while in Windows.
I now have a bricked motherboard. Nothing but a blinking cursor on the screen.
