ASRock Instant Flash
ASRock Instant Flash is an exclusive and the most user-friendly BIOS flash utility
developed by ASRock. It is embedded in Flash ROM which is used to update the
system BIOS without having to enter operating systems like MS-DOS or Windows.
Features
Once executing ASRock Instant Flash, the utility will automatically detect all devices such as USB, hard disk or even floppy drive to
find the exact BIOS for your system. Instead of giving you all BIOS in your devices, the Instant Flash just list BIOS versions that
apply to your motherboard model only. For example, if you have many different BIOS of different motherboards saved in your
devices, but you just need to flash your P45 motherboard, the Instant Flash will just list the P45 BIOS versions for you. This unique
function allows you to easily select the suitable BIOS version instead of browsing through all data.
Instant Flash just list
BIOS versions that
apply to your
motherboard model.
Click and start
Flashing!
