I wished I had read this post before I purchased this motherboard as I have the same problem.
I chose this motherboard because of the WiFi, but now I have to buy another processor to flash the BIOS.
I did some research before I purchased this motherboard and assumed wrongly that REV 3 would work with an A10 7850K.
