    Glad to see you had no issues. There are many ways to flash of course, I just outlined some of the easier and safer methods

    I just got a GA-MA78GPM-UD2H and I am trying to update the bios using Q-Flash but it couldn't read either of the flash drives I tried. Also after making the flash drives bootable I could not get them to boot. What other options do I have to update my bios without a floppy drive?

    Bootable USB is not necessary, but If you think your USB Sticks may not be compatible with Qflash and want to use a bootable USB that is fine. Did you copy extra files onto the USB Stick, or just follow the guide word by word? I ask because if you copy files that seem to be missed when you create the USB Stick with the HP Program it will not work. You must use the program only, then copy over the BIOS .Fxx file and then boot to it.

    You must also be sure USB Storage Detect is enabled in the Integrated Peripherals BIOS section, and that you leave the USB Stick in when you reboot to Qflash. And you must have USB 1.1, and 2.0 enabled in the BIUOS as well of course.

    If you are having issues with just booting to the USB Stick, then on reboot Hit F12 to get to the Boot menu, then choose HDD+ and on the next screen you should see your USB Stick by name and be able to select it to boot from.

    If you still have issues with Qflash or Booting to your USB Please post me a image of all the files showing in your USB Stick so I can check to be sure you have not added anything that may be messing it up, or to be sure you have the correct files there.

    In the end, yes there are other ways to flash if you find your USB Devices just to be not compatible (Some are not). You can flash from Qflash with the BIOS files on a FAT32 partition and I can help you create one if need be, let me know

    The link to the boot files doesn't work so I used the windows98 boot files from bootdisk.com . I tried to format a partition of my hard drive to FAT32 and put the BIOS file on it but Q-Flash doesn't show anything besides 'Floppy A' and I don't even have a floppy drive. Does this FAT32 partition have to be a specific size and does it have to be on the primary hard drive?

    Edit: Nevermind I got. When I was choosing my boot device from the F12 menu i went to USB FDD instead of the HDD+. Thanks, I would have never figured it out myself.

    So you got in by going into HDD+ right, then on the next page you saw your USB Device correct? I always do that way myself as I have never spent the time to try other ways as that is pretty simple

    Thanks for letting me know about the Boot Files, the ones you grabbed elsewhere are likely not what is needed. I will update the link now

    *EDIT*

    What file are you saying does not work? The Boot Files link works just fine, so no edit was needed >>>
    http://www.mediafire.com/?dgkgymdtzzi

    Same link as page one "Boot Files" from Step # 2

    USB-Boot.zip

    I guess mediafire didn't like my firefox. I still got the USB to boot with the other boot files and I booted through the HDD+ option in the F12 menu. I don't know why Q-Flash doesn't like my flash drive. Thanks again for your help.

    Hmm, Odd for sure as I also use firefox?

    Ahh well, glitches happen. Thanks for letting me know anyway incase it did need updating!

    Did you try Qflash again? I find that odd that you could boot to your USB but not use Qflash

    Mediafire didn't like my firefox running with greasemonkey. Q-Flash still won't read the USB drive. It's a 8gb Corsair Voyager.
