New Updates for all Z490 Motherboards today.  Basically, a security fix for the Intel ME:
 
BIOS 1.08 (E499 DARK/DARK KPE) / BIOS 1.09 (E497 FTW)

  • Update ME FW 14.0.45.1389 for Intel security vulnerability
 


Windows Installation
  • Download the correct .zip file below for your motherboard:        
         131-CL-E499-KP - EVGA Z490 DARK KPE - v1.08
         131-CL-E499-KR - EVGA Z490 DARK - v1.08
         122-CL-E497-KR - EVGA Z490 FTW - v1.09
  • First go into your BIOS and load defaults, save and exit
  • Close all open programs.
  • Go into the folder where you unzipped this package and double-click update.bat
  • Press Y to start the flash process
  • DO NOT TURN OFF POWER OR RESET DURING THE FLASH PROCESS
  • After the flashing is finished, the system will automatically shut down. Then power on again and go into BIOS to setup.
  • NOTE: If flash box immediately closes after flash attempt, the flash may need to be ran from a CMD prompt with administrator privileges or DOS version.
  
BIOS Installation
  • Extract the contents of .zip file to USB flash drive (must be formatted as FAT32)
  • Reboot the machine and go into the system BIOS
  • From the BIOS, navigate to the Save & Exit tab and open "Select BIOS File."
  • Select the .bin file you wish to flash.
 
Please let me know if anyone runs into problems with this update.  Thanks!
