DH55TC Motherboard installed with wrong BIOS?

I have a DH55TC motherboard, this board is supposed to have BIOS of [TCIBX10H.86A] but when I checked my BIOS version it says [TCIBX10H.44T].0010.2010.0628.1443, 6/28/2010. Express BIOS update isn't working because of this and I'm worried that if I update through DOS by booting with a flashdrive, I might end up with a paperweight. I need some help. I've been trying to upgrade my RAm for the past 2 weeks, this is the only thing that's preventing my PC from booting up.

The 44T is an indicator that this board has an OEM-specific custom BIOS installed. You cannot upgrade this BIOS with standard BIOS (86A) releases.

Thanks for replying and pointing that out. Will I still be able to reflash it with the standard BIOS? If so, can you provide me the methods on how to flash it properly, the guide on the support page is a bit confusing.

No, you can not. You must go through the OEM for BIOS updates (though I rather doubt there will be any)...

Sorry,
