When i try to update with one of thse bios updates i recieve an error, ,, this is not an AWARD bios,,,, or System was not new AWARD BIOS version, please update rom BIOS first

I want to update my bios because my pc is doing strange things, and in the device manager there is an error, no mass storage controler.
And i can not find drivers for this, so i tougt maybe it is my bios.
HD is western digital

I already did a full system scan. No virus.

I made a new installation, so my pc has only a clean windows installation and the problen is not solved.

Mass Storage Controller is the extra Highpont UDMA66 OnBoard IDE-Controller which needs drivers or disabling in Bios .

Try a newer Award Flash program
