    Hi guys, just recently picked this up! Trying to update to the latest BIOS, however it seems there is no BIOS update option in the BIOS menu? When I go to the advanced tab I don't have any option to update the BIOS? I have all the files on a FAT32 formatted flash drive. Hopefully this is something stupid that I'm doing wrong!

    you must have USB + DOS ,.,,.boot this device
    ,.,.inside is .BAT "auto command" this you must load

    for this notebook exist to many bios !!! .,,WIN7 /win8 up //RAID or AHCI
    select correct bios "read all on MSI page" for correct update

    any update is RISK --possitible BRICK
    good luck

    Thank you very much for this. I'll try booting to DOS and see if that works. The BIOS files I found from MSI don't come with a .bat file, but they do have a flash.nsh file, which I think is similar? Seems really strange that all of MSI's guides on updating the BIOS on these laptops shows them doing it from within the BIOS menu
