Problem updating bios

The boot order also shows the names of devices it sees by each option; optical drive shows the name of my optical drive, network boot shows the ethernet port. In the boot order I have sata set as the first option.The boot order also shows the names of devices it sees by each option; optical drive shows the name of my optical drive, network boot shows the ethernet port. So it sounds like BIOS isn't recognizing the drive.There's yet another recovery partition after that on the drive too. So after the W10 upgrade's first reboot, the laptop started showing the white square cursor which indicates hard drive not recognized.Wouldn't even respond if I put in a CD or told the BIOS specifically to use the recovery utility or boot to an Arch Linux USB stick, just straight to the white square cursor of death.I went into setup and told it to restore default settings. I powered off, removed the power cord and battery, hit the power button, removed the hard drive, replaced the power cord and battery, powered on. I powered off, replaced the hard drive and powered on. Edit: Forgot to mention, I used gparted through a linux live usb to do partition editing, and forgot to explicitly state that only my BIOS has any trouble reading the hard drive Update: I borrowed a friend's hard drive to test in the computer just to make absolutely sure it wasn't the hard drive, and his hard drive booted. My system was dual booting Windows 10 Technical Preview and Arch Linux.So now I'm thinking the problem is with the hard drive. A few days ago there was an unfortunate occurrence that caused a problem which I have run out of ideas to attempt to solve. I was using Windows and it wanted to update but I was in the middle of something so I told it to wait.A few minutes later the system froze, as experimental systems sometimes do.

If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it. Not all motherboards have the Q-Flash, please use @BIOS or DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not have Q-Flash.
