Okay thanks a lot for you all input....I was able to update successfully..using a simple method from a dude on another thread..For those in the same boat as me here are what worked for me
install Windows 10/7 x64bit
My bios revision was 17.5 for MSI Z68A-GD80 B3
After version 17.5 there is version 20..I put Bios version 20 onto the USB stick and double clicked and run it from there and just follow the prompts..It started updating right away...When finished it will ask to restart
After restart I then went back into windows then Downloaded bios revision 20.1 which is the latest and last version...Put it on the usb stick and opened it up from there..And let it do it's thing..Same procedure and prompts you would see..When it's done it will restart
And thats all... am into the latest bios version and also added in my i7 Ivy Bridge processor..And it booted up first time without even trying to hard...lol..Thanks a lot admins for the tips..Hope it helps anyone out there..

So the simplest way is to execute the bios file on a usb flash drive, as per the instruction in the bios note?
