Updating Asus Z97-A/USB 3.1 with newer Intel RSO ROM

I just want to say you have some great information posted here. I also successfully updated the MEI ROM on my brand new motherboard with your fantastic instructions and now I want to update the Intel Rapid Storage Option ROM.

I was wondering if any of you could help me as I am a bit confused (I wish the instructions were as clear as the MEI ones!) :slight_smile:

I have the current specifications:

Asus Z97-A/USB 3.1 with BIOS ver 2501

Current Intel Rapid Storage Option ROM installed (from factory):

Win7 64-Bit installed

What would be the best/latest Option ROM to select to upgrade/be compatible with the current Intel RSO ROM that the Asus board has as noted above and how do I go about it in the best/easiest way possible?

Please let me know and sorry if it sounds academic - I am new to this stuff!



On behalf of the ME Thread, I’d like to say thank you for the nice comments.

Regarding the RST questions, I’ll let Fernando answer these as he has the appropriate knowledge.
