ASus motherboards come with a utility called "asus update" install it from the disc provided with the mothreboard.
there will not be any errors, as the motherboard does not automatically know that there is a new bios out there.
once you install the update utility, it will tell you which bios version you're running, then you can go to asus.com click on support and find the available bios for your motherboard, and see if you need to flash the bios.
