BIOS Update

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to update the BUOS without a cd just on a usb drive?

Yes, there are several tools that can make a bootable USB from a bootable CD (ISO) image. Rufus is one such tool.

Assuming you already have the bootable ISO with the BIOS image, you launch the application and it's rather straightforward. I believe the website even has a tutorial.
