That's my problem, i have downloaded latest Bios version, and put it on my USB, Yes i have unzipped it, and when i went to M-Flash to update my Bios, nothing happen, i can see the Bios Version folder, but still can't update it.. I have tried to google it, even tried MSI support, so far no help.. And to be hones i am 90% i will put the new processor and not update Bios, a bios that can't be updated at all
 
MSI User Forums admin Svet has prepared a UEFI shell tool that will absolutely flash your BIOS. You can find find the whole thread at:

https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=302638.0

This tool will allow flashing your MSI's mainboard UEFI BIOS from UEFI Shell.

Prepare an USB key and format it in FAT32
Download the tool from the link:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hqEM8AUOEFIkJx9Ct-AFTwCyo0HLIiB5/view?usp=sharing

and extract all contents over the USB key, [FAT32 formatted]
copy/extract the folder structure As Is to the USB key.
Do not omit the folders and sub-folders.

then also add/copy/extract desire MSI UEFI BIOS that you want flash,
on USB key main/root (\) folder.
for example i want to flash a E7A34AMS.M90 BIOS,
and copied the BIOS file on USB key main/root folder

Next reboot computer,
and ensure in BIOS Setup:
UEFI Boot is allowed,
and Secure Boot disabled.

Then boot from USB key,
in UEFI Mode,
You can press F11 during BIOS post/logo screen, then when BBS popup after a while,
choose the prepared USB key with UEFI in front as name.
i.e: choose to boot from:
UEFI USB your drive

then wait, and you will see the BIOS version shown that is going to be flashed.
and you can press a key to proceed with flashing.
If you don't want to proceed with flashing,
you can press "q" to abort at that point.

when flashing starts,
if asked for force flashing answer with "Y",
and wait patiently to finish,
ensure successfuly message on the screen then reboot or power off the computer.

Note1: Be sure to place only one BIOS file on the USB key at the time, before proceed with flashing.
Note2: Due BIOS flashing nature, (which consider every flashing as potential dangerous)
Flash and use at own risk as usual.
Note3: FYI: You can also flash your Ryzen X370/B350 boards back to an older BIOS using this tool

My Bios ver: E7A32AKB.170 and the newest version is 7A32v1I
 


Are you extracting the ROM file - E7A32AMS.1I0 - from the archive first?

But if your 2700X works in your board then the BIOS version in it isn't what you think it is if you're thinking it's version 1.70.

Are you sure you have an X370 Gaming Pro Carbon? or might it be the X370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC?

It's X370 Gaming Pro Carbon - i have extracting files to usb so all is open and went to M-Flash.

And when i am in M-Flash i can't see nothing.. I am very tempting to put the new processor when i get it tomorrow
