"WARNING! ROM file information does not match system BIOS."

I have an asus z370 extreme 4 motherboard. I searched for the program manually and it said this so I didn't continue with installation. I then used the included app that will download all drivers and BIOS update, and it says the same thing.

Is this normal? Should I continue to flash?

No!!! Don’t flash!!!!

It will brick your motherboard. Somehow you don’t have the proper BIOS file, try looking at the official Asus website, be sure you select exactly your board and not a slightly different one.

yes, i meant to say asrock board. And the app I used says the same thing as when I download it from the website. Very bizarre, but I can go without the update i believe.

Have you tried with instant flash?

So update the BIOS manually.

The latest BIOS is this:

http://asrock.pc.cdn.bitgravity.com/BIOS/1151/Z370%20Extreme4(3.30)ROM.zip

Follow the instructions of the Video above.

And use a USB 2.0 port instead of an USB 3.0

much appreciated. If I brick my motherboard, is there a way to recover it. I need to research that before moving forward otherwise I'll be SOL.

If it's not the proper BIOS, the board will not let you to upgrade it.

But the link i posted is the latest BIOS available for your board.

Now at the worse case scenario that something really bad happens to the board (most unlikely unless you get a power outage), the board has 3 years warranty,

So, you get a new one.

Sorry if that sounds a bit weird to you, but if you don't get over with this, you will most probably never update a BIOS on any board, and that shouldn't work that way. lol

However if you think you can't follow up the update procedure that the video shows, then just forget the update and leave it as it is. :)
