    More than likely you need a BIOS update. Here is the page to download the
    latest version:

    Definitely need a BIOS upgrade for Barton core support. You BIOS needs to be
    version 1.11 or newer.

    Here is the BIOS page for the AK77-8X

    Version 1.14 is the latest, so you might as well flash to that right away.
