So I was an idiot and used Asus Ez update to update a few things, and by mistake selected a new bios. Now the problem is that Ez Update isnt really good for bios updates. Right, so I didn't cancel it in time and it just got stuck on 99%. Now I was really afraid of cancelling the update, because you know, I might brick my bios. After like half an hour of staying 99%, I just restarted and crossed my fingers. Luckily it actually somehow updated the bios without any errors.

Just... don't use Ez update for bios stuff... Its a nightmare...
Thats all!

Yikes. I have a Asus Z97 board and in the one time I used its Bios flashing tool it didn't have this problem of progress stuck at 99%. Good thing your board wasn't bricked. I was using the EZ Flash utility where you load the new Bios from a flash drive.

I've got the Z97-pro, lucky you! Although if it did brick that one bios, isnt the z97 a dual bios? Hopefully I dont need to go there.

Yes, I have an ASUS board as well and steer well clear of those "advanced", "automated" options. Unpredictable, too easy to screw up, and not something I have time to fix or double-check.
