    I try to upgrade the motherboard BIOS (the model is the MSI GF615M-P33)

    but when I go to flash and write me the command(mode with automatic update does not exist since the model is very old) it gives me the following message:

    "Flash part is not supported"

    How can I fix it ?

    Have you had a good look through the bios? Perhaps flashing can be enabled? Just a thought. Jumper on the board??

    should I remove the jumper from the MB ?

    Is the jumper labelled? Could be like a clear cmos. Do you have the user manual?

    Yeah .. I read the mobo's manual..the jumper is in the right position (2-3) (saves data in cmos)

    Try the command below and compare the version with the one you are trying to upgrade with.

    Code:
    wmic bios get smbiosbiosversion

    That's a good idea. What version is on there? Sometimes there are different revision boards. ie, v1, v2, same model but with 3 audio, 6 audio, etc...
    They all have a different bios.

    I have installed the latest version which is 7597v2A but I want to flash a modificated BIOS with SLIC_table.

    which method should I select from rufus to create a bootable usb ? MS-DOS or Free-DOS ???

    Compare with jumper position on your machine. I don't see why you should clear CMOS for flashing bios. :cool:
