    My first attempt was the @BIOS method but it still gave me an error saying the bios file size was incorrect. :(

    Ok I finally got to update my BIOS to F7 (GA-X58A-UD7 rev.1) using FlashSPI method, I still couldn't type anything after booting off the USB so I just put the autoexec.bat in there and it worked fine.
    So I want to update my BIOS all the way to F9A, what would you suggest is the best course of action here?
    Can I still use FlashSPI method or do I HAVE to use @BIOS (I've read several horror stories) utility?
    Finally do I have to update my BIOS to F8M first or can I update straight to F9A?
    All inputs are welcomed!! Thanks!

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

    Hi,

    Thanks but I'm taken aback by:

    a) How slow and full of adds this site is (it crashes a lot in IE 8, Win 7)

    b) How the sticky post as to how to fush the BIOS have not been updated to reflect the latest file format (i.e. exe and not .fxx)

    c) How that utility to make a bootable USB HP USB Tool, hanged mid way in WIn 7 on two USB drives that I had to use Diskpart to reformat again afterwards. Is that utility damaged or infected? HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool - v2.1.8? HPUSBFW

    d) Lastly I'm teribbil disappointed at Gigabyte for the mobo: it is unaccetable for it not to recognize in BIOS a WD HD, nor an SSD or not to boot Win & from a DVD drive, using their SATA ports!

    Any ideas?
    Happy New Year!
