ASRock Adds Godavari CPU Support for FM2A78M-HD+ R2.0 and FM2A78M-ITX+ Boards

Just now, ASRock has rolled out two new BIOS packages developed for its FM2A78M-HD+ R2.0 and FM2A78M-ITX+ motherboards, namely versions 1.70 and 1.80, respectively, which only include support for AMD’s new Godavari CPU models.

When it comes to installing this release, first of all take into account that this task should be performed only when the newer version includes an additional change that you can really make use of. With this in mind, save and unzip the downloadable archive, transfer all content onto a FAT32-formatted memory drive, go into the board’s BIOS menu, and select “Instant Flash Utility” located under the “Tool” menu.

At this point, the board will automatically detect and list any found BIOS version that it supports. Simply select the desired build, and wait patiently for the device to perform the upgrade. However, if this method doesn’t work, then press F6 key to boot from the attached USB drive (prepared before), browse and select the BIOS version you want to flash, and wait for it to be applied. As for recommendations, since a failure can seriously damage your device, it would be a good idea to perform this task using a stable and continuous power source such as the one ensured by a UPS unit.
