DQ77MK Desktop board Drivers and BIOS


Hello All!

Does anyone have the last available bio and drivers for the intel DQ77MK motherboard? 


Looking mainly for the latest bios and tools to reflash as an modified BIOS is currently installed and also the Integrators assistant to customise the boot screen.  


Any support would be great as the desktop board drivers etc has been removed from the website

I have attached the latest bios and release notes.

If you are using windows 10, you already have all the drivers needed.



Your a legend thanks for that!!

Also having trouble getting a new logo and system information into the board - Do you know what's the best route - The Integrator Toolkit that is available claims it only now supports NUCs/ compute sticks and Integrator Assistant can only found on untrustworthy sites 

I have tried booting the EFI ITK but maybe user error or it's not really compatible

Nearest I can find is attached.  I cannot guarantee the integrity of the package, nor can I say that it will work.   @n_scott_pearson  may be able to provide more information.



Thanks for that got it installed without any Red Alerts from windows defender hopefully it works a treat. 

It works for 100% of the things I need it to do!!

Many thanks again!!

Glad it works for you.



I ve just build a new system with a brand new mobo like this and it has Bios version 0054 is it safe to go directly to the latest version 0074? OS is win 10 is there any exe file to run it from windows?

What is the model number of your motherboard?  Also, there are no brand new boards like this, unless you got lucky and found a NOS board.

Model is DQ77MK and i found her brandnew. I build this system yesterday and it works fine with win10 16gigs of ram ssd and stock Bios 0054. I have the files IFLASH2.EXE and MK0074.BIO and i saw i can update by pressing F7 at startup. Should i update it or leave it as it is? (regarding performance drop due to the latest Bios as far as i know) thanks.

You can go from 54 to 74 if you use the BIOS Recovery process. Do not attempt to do this using the F7, (DOS-based) iFlash2 or (Windows-based) EBU methods as this is too big of a jump in BIOS releases.

For information on the BIOS Recovery process, consult Intel Desktop Boards Recovery BIOS Update Instructions.

To help you better, here are my step-by-step instructions for BIOS Recovery:

  1. NOTE: Read these instructions completely before starting. Follow all instructions EXACTLY.
  2. On some other Windows-based PC, make sure that you have the .BIO file for the BIOS release you wish to install.
  3. Insert a 32GB or smaller (the smaller the better) USB 2.0 flash drive into the PC. Do not use USB 3.0 flash drives (most are not compatible). It is also best if you use a flash drive that has an access LED that you can watch.
  4. Format this USB flash drive using the Windows Format applet. Select to install the FAT32 file system (NOT vFAT, NOT exFAT; FAT32 only). You must also specify that the Quick Format option be Disabled (unchecked).
  5. NOTE: If FAT32 is not offered as a choice by the Format applet, your flash drive is too big; use another.
  6. Copy the .BIO file into the root folder of this USB flash drive. This should be the only .BIO file in the root folder of the USB flash drive.
  7. Properly eject the USB flash drive. Do not just yank it out. Do this from File Explorer or using the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media System Tray applet.
  8. Power off the Desktop Board system.
  9. Remove the yellow BIOS Configuration jumper from the board. It will be the only yellow jumper; the rest will usually be black.
  10. NOTE: Remember the pins that this jumper was plugged onto; you will need this information later.
  11. Plug the USB flash drive into one of the black USB 2.0 ports on the back panel of the board. Do not use blue or yellow USB 3.0 port. Do not use any front panel USB ports.
  12. Power on the system.
  13. The BIOS Recovery process should start automatically. You should see a progress report on your main monitor.
  14. NOTE: If you do not see a progress report displayed on a monitor, do not power off the system for at least 15 minutes. While it is rare, it is possible for the process to proceed without an onscreen display; you must give it ample time to complete, just in case.
  15. When the BIOS Recovery process is complete, you will be asked to power off the system. Do so.
  16. Restore the yellow BIOS Configuration jumper to the pins it was on previously. This should be across pins 1 and 2 of this (three pin) header.
  17. Remove the USB flash drive from the back panel of the board.
  18. Power on the board.
  19. Immediately begin pressing the F2 key, over and over (approx. once per second) until you see the BIOS Setup (or Visual BIOS) screen displayed.
  20. Verify, using the BIOS version string, that the BIOS installed properly. Stop if it isn't.
  21. Verify, using the ME version string, that the ME is operational (it isn't if the version string is blank or displayed as This is in the Advanced System Information screen.
  22. Press the F9 key (followed by the Y key) to reset of the BIOS configuration.
  23. Press the F10 key (followed by the Y key) to save the BIOS Configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
  24. Once screen is cleared (goes black), begin pressing the F2 key, over and over, until you see the BIOS Setup screen displayed.
  25. Make any changes to the BIOS configuration that you desire (for example, disabling NUMLOCK) or that you require (for example, setting Boot Order, enabling UEFI, etc.).
  26. Press the F10 key (followed by the Y key) to save the BIOS Configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
  27. Test.

Hope this helps,
