BIOS simply won't update... -

My board is an MSI GD65 Z87 GAMING board.
I am stuck on BIOS v1.4 what the board came with. I noticed that there has been multiple versions and its now up to v1.8 so I decided best to update it.
I reset everything back to stock settings in BIOS, formatted a part of my 1TB external HDD to FAT32 and extracted the BIOS version above mine v1.5 which updates the ME firmware on my board as well.
I went into BIOS and selected "Update BIOS & ME from USB" it showed my HDD drive and it shows the file name v1.5 I select that and nothing.
The BIOS just freezes. I waited twenty minutes before reluctantly hitting the reset button. The system booted up fine but I am still on v1.4
I tried just updating the BIOS it self and not ME and still nothing. I tried updating straight to the latest v1.8 and nothing.
Simply my BIOS just freezes, cant move the mouse and use the keyboard.
What am I doing wrong here?
