    @ ICit2lol
    This procedure is a lot easier than it seems . Make note of any BIOS settings you previously changed from default .
    On the file you renamed change the name to Z77VB.CAP , according this Renaming Rule pdf .
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...S_Renaming.pdf
    Copy this file on an EMPTY USB flash drive . Make sure the flash drive is formatted Fat32 .
    On page 3-39 of your manual ( 3.10.2 ASUS EZ Flash 2 utility ) follow the steps listed for EZ Flash 2 to flash the BIOS .
    When prompted to restart the pc do it .
    When the the computer is restarting go back to the BIOS and load Optimized Defaults . Restart the computer .
    Go back to the BIOS and make any changes from default you had noted from before .
    Boot to windowz your done ☺

    1. Unzip the BRenamer.zip file.
    2. Unzip the P8Z77-V-ASUS-2104.zip file.
    3. Copy or cut the file in the P8Z77-V-ASUS folder
    4. Paste the file into the BRenamer folder.
    5. Follow the instructions 2 and 3 in the readme file.

    @Winuser ,
    You can do either , right click the unzipped bios file and select rename or use the utility . Both accomplish the same thing .
    I just flashed a couple of ASUS bios's and I did not use the utility .

    As long as the update works, all is good! I don't like messing with the bios unless I have to.

    @Winuser ,
    I agree . Although I've flashed a lot of bios's ,I still am very cautious when doing it . On the z77 , z87 and x79 chipset boards there have been a lot of improvements in the code . So I think ( IMHO ) it is worth keeping them up to date .
    Some of the ASUS boards do not have the Renaming Rules listed and you have to use the utility . Why ASUS can not just put the properly named bios file in their bios zip files I have no idea / clue . But they do not , oh well .

    Ok I am back at home and am going to try again - to be honest I don't remember it being so hard to do this the first time

    I have deleted all other downloads and re downloaded the BIOS and the REname files and "extracted"them now I just renamed the BIOS file to what was in that ref by jetroho and copied it to the stick and in the pic is what I get .

    I still do not understand what the REname file does?? as opening it just gives me a black command window with "press any key to continue" - doing that makes the thing disappear hence me just right clicking and renaming the BIOS file.
    What I thought was going to be so easy has turned into a bad dream as there seems to be so many different angles on how to do this.

    Well all worked out in the end I redone the whole process and the same thing except that this time the rename automatically did the BIOS file to that one quoted before.
    A few hiccoughs later and the machine is up and running so thanks to all for the time and patience

    Glad it worked out for you .
    It is kind of odd how they do it , but what it is what it is .

    Yep I know mate why the thing just cannot come as it is - renamed and just as a download and preferably not a zip is beyond me.
    But at least the machine is running better now mind you I ran the Samsung Magician on the drive and it certainly lifted it's game too.
