Soooo...

I have an MSI H110M pro VH mobo
I have the latest BIOS files copied to USB
Mflash just won't recognise any files.
I've tried
  • 16GB and 4GB USB
  • formatting to FAT
  • renaming the file to MSI.ROM
  • using Live Update 6 - which says the BIOS is already the latest, but really it's several versions out of date
I challenge you to solve this for me !

You should challenge MSI to solve it... https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?forums/msi-intel-boards.54/ , you might get an answer there :)

Did you try a few different ones? How many are you behind?
You know what I tried to post on MSI forums but the page wouldn't work.

Anyway I half solved this. I got the latest UFADOS from the AMI website.
First I got the next BIOS version from the one I had.
Upgrade installed.
Rebooted.
Works fine. Hurrah.

Then I got the latest update.
Upgrade installed.
Rebooted.
Brick.

Killed my motherboard.

If MSI Mflash worked this wouldn't have happened, so no more MSI boards for me.

If there are a lot of BIOS upgrades should they be written one at a time or is it generally OK to go for the latest and skip the intermediaries ?

I ask out of general public interest.
