    Hi, I must say that I should have read more about this before I flashed my P67A-UD4-B3 bio from F3 to F4. I used Q-flash, and did not go through all the process illustrated on page 1 regarding the following steps:

    "Once you have flashed and rebooted back into the BIOS choose Load Optimized defaults and save and apply. This is a required step for the flash process to complete, and for the new BIOS to be properly loaded into the chip.

    Then reboot Back into the BIOS again before you go into windows. You will need to set your hard drive settings again in the Advanced BIOS page. MOST IMPORTANTLY do not try to load Windows if you are using a RAID setup without setting these disk settings again or you will corrupt your RAID Array.

    Please do not skip the above steps and try to load windows, this is for anyone who is reading this who is using RAID, which alot of us do.

    These are the steps needed using the
    Intel
    Controller to assure your Array will not be lost post flash. PM if image is missing"

    I was wondering if there is anything I can do to redo those steps. I am not sure and don't understand what it means by corrupt RAID array, and what kind of problem it will create. The computer runs fine in general with occasional freeze in game that will force restart. I read in the event log regarding the freeze, it says can't find file for power management etc etc. Please assist.

    Thank you very much.

    Just re flash the bios again as you did. This time follow the correct steps. When in q-flash make sure you change cheek dmi pool data from enabled to disabled.

    If you are using AHCI mode or raid when you installed windows you need to reset then before booting as the default mode is IDE. This is for SATA drives.

    Also once you have successfully flashed the bios and are in windows for the first time. Restart the computer at start up hold down "ALT" key + "F12" key this will flash the back up with the main bios so both are up to date and match. Having them not match can have stability or boot issues.

    Dumb question, but how do I know what mode my hard disk is running on? Also, for the Alt + F12 thing, do I do it the way I do it when I try to boot in safe mode, like press F8 before windows load? or do I do it right away at the very beginning?

    Using AHCI or Raid is something you would have set in the bios your self. If you did not make this change the defualts is IDE mode. Look under Integrated Peripherals. Once windows is installed you cant changes this setting with out getting a bsod unless you make changes the registry when you can google or search hear for.

    Alt +f12 at start up when you hear the start up beep if you have a system speaker attached to the motherboard.

    Understood, I will do that tonight.

    What will be the best way to see if my RAMs are having the correct voltage etc? and is there a good way to take screenshot of the settings in the BIO?

    ET6 can show you voltages.

    So I have X58A UD7 motherboard. I never updated BIOS before. I tried now to QBios for FC (DMI DATA DISABLED), but got BIOS ID Cheksum error.

    Why?

    How safe is to use @bios? (Win 7 64 bit - any issues?)

    Will there be any improvements in SSD speed?

    I had NO idea of this, and while I think it maybe is a very good idea, perhaps it should for sure be noted not only on the BIOS download page also added into the Manuals. I will forward this information/suggestion to Gigabyte

    Question Re: BIOS Flashing - A "How To ~ Qflash Guide"

    Hello,
    If I need update bios for X58A-UD7 (rev. 1) from F7t (1MB) to F9d (2MB) I must use @Bios or may use Q-flash?
    I have RAID 0 array and I don't want loose data from disk ...

    What do I need special attention?

    THX for help.

    Regards,
    Tom
