    quick look in the manual says the file should be called H170P.CAP

    Pulling the battery may help , worth a try , usually that sets all the options to defaults

    Look for an old case in the back alley an swipe the speaker :) i'd be surprised if local computer didn't have one lying around you could have too.

    ** not sure what the LE: paragraph is about?

    Yes I'll try the DVD rescue option and after that the battery removal method. Hope that will solve somehow; meanwhile I saw a pretty close situation here. (hope is not illegal to post other external forums links).

    ahhhh .....I missed the link to the table , that is just a generic help file I found on Asus Site , each and ever MB has a special file name you have to use for Flashback or CrashFree to work.

    His issue was the file was on a NTFS disk not a Fat 32 disk ....

    Did you try updating from windows the 1st time or with EZ-Update3 in the Bios ? (I always use the bios option)

    In the bios look under USB or CSM (storage) and see if that it is set to Legacy , perhaps the bios can't see your USB stick in UEFI Mode?

    Indeed a bit different the scenario but the same result "To finish update, you have to select the same BIOS file (.cap file) blah blah blah"
    Nope, not in Windows, I was trying to update from UEFI and as far as I remember was EZ update 2 now it's 3 (kind of updated); Unfortunately there is no other available option in order to change other parameters like Legacy for USB and so on.

    It could be the fact that at first I've used the bios file .cap with the original name and according to manual could be necessarily to be renamed; I suppose. In the same time, in the dialog message the file should be with the same name as it was at the beginning of the update process.

    in your 3rd pic did you click on the storage device or use the up down left right arrows to select it ? , try that if you didn't, fooled me the 1st time too , it seems to say fs:0 so it sees something.... I think

    Yes I've tried to access the storage section where it should be the USB stick using the mouse and the keyboard arrows. It's inactive that's kind of strange. I also have tried to enter first to that section and after that to plug the USB stick (different cases formated as FAT/ FAT32 / with original filename/ renamed bios file). unfortunately no result.

    Please let me try the DVD rescue and the battery "scam" and I'll come back with some news.
    For the moment, thank you all for your time and interest, in trying to solve my issue.

    Ok, here we go again. I've tried to use bupdater in DOS with FAT/ FAT32 formatted sticks using Rufus according to this (MBR partition UEFI/DOS, also creating bootable disk with FreeDOS), new downloaded BIOS files in different versions; After the file is checked, the next step is Loading updating module. The sequence is initialized and I receive "unknown result!".

    The archives are not corrupted, I've tested the zip files and as I've said I've tried different BIOS version files.
    Any thoughts ?

    After that I'll apply the final solution removing the battery but I'm a little bit scared about using this. Thanks,

    I've remove the battery, put that back in place and this is—I suppose—the end(?!)
    In other words, I can't even go to the boot choosing device screen pressing F8, If I press F1 I receive the good old screen that telling me to continue the updating process, the DVD or the USB stick it's not working in recovery mode or something like this, at this point I'm pretty stuck. Any ideas?

    kbird referenced a different Mobo in post# 2

    Be certain of the Mobo -> I found a different link based on H170-PRO
    The rest of this post is based on the H170-PRO site, not the H170-PRO/CSM site.
    Note: a quick check of the BIOS versions ... both sites list v 1803 - so it might be a moot point
