It is much safer to update the BIOS from MS-DOS.
I only do it from Windows if there is no other choice.
And Asrock does have the BIOS still on their website so you don't need a third party website:
https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/775Dual-915GL/#BIOS

If you need help just ask if there is anything you are unsure about.

thank you very much for the answer sir
yes i would like to ask something because i have not done the procedure again
from floppy disk will I do it through dos?
because the disk driver has a problem
In addition, the old version that I have and is P 1.20 works normally, it just does not give me the option to run the graphics card that I have installed via pci express first
has only vga option on board enable and auto
If i do vga enable at the start of a system that says start windows 7 and the windows icon is formed, the process is performed normally, I enter and in the screen adapters I see two graphics cards, the one that is on board and the one that I put in pci express
I turn off the on board it turns off normally I make a stop and start to see from pci express but it does not show anything I still see from the on board blow even though I have turned it off
when I select auto I see normally from the nature of the card that I have installed in pci express but when it starts the system starts windows 7 where it goes to form the shape of windows only three dots appear as if it sticks does not form the symbol of windows at all although continues normally and goes in and works normally
That's why I want to update the bios whether the version P1.30 has the option of starting vga from PCI because the version P 1.20 has the option of only vga on board (Enabled or auto)

If the floppy is bad you can use Rufus to make a bootable USB flash stick with either MS-DOS or FreeDOS if you don't have a copy of the former.
Then just copy the files from the Asus website to that, try to boot from it and see how it goes.
You will need to start the flash tool manually but it's not hard, Asus describes it on this page here:
https://www.asrock.com/support/BIOSIG.asp?cat=DOS

But let's try to get it booting first.
P.S: Of course I have no idea if it will fix your issue.
