That's how they're doing it now. Download the BIOS update along with all the other updates. Surprised the hell out of me.
Hmmm.... I've never seen/heard of an "auto
" update for a motherboard BIOS. That can be dangerous and costly if a user didn't know they were updating a BIOS and shut down the PC
Anyway a BIOS update will always warn about shutting the PC/item down before the flash is finished, or else trouble awaits. In addition there are warnings that you have to acknowledge before proceeding.
While it's generally not recommended to flash through Windows, it's actually the easiest way to do so, and the way I've done mine for awhile now.
