Updating the BIOS with the Flash BIOS Button method is described in the mainboard manual, or see here,

Check if you really went by the book:

1) Download the newest BIOS (top one).
2) Extract the file, it contains the BIOS file and a text file
3) Rename the BIOS file to MSI.ROM
4) Prepare a USB stick, it needs to be formatted as FAT32, for example with the help of https://rufus.ie/en/
In case of problems, try different sticks.
5) Put the MSI.ROM on there (directly in the root folder, not in a subfolder)
Then proceed according to the manual/video.
