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

    unfortunately my friend ,in rev 1.0 mobo
    bios is inside Intel ICH7 chip, it is not a stand alone chip like the other versions.
    i think there is no solution.

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

    Thx for the guide.

    Two problems I found with this guide. There is no mention of Efiflash. I was about to use bios flash switch commands till I noticed the flashing program had a different name (presumably flashing bios not UEFI bios). Also I find Rufus tool a better method than HP USB tool and the page for flashing the bios by Stasio references this guide and direct link to rufus tool.

    The 2nd problem is the guide talks about floppy disks and I have one but the bios is 8Mb for Z97X-gaming 5, nForce 2 was 2Mb.

    For reference here is a guide on efiflash:

    http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.p....html#msg89013

    However it fails to mention that in order to create a DOS bootable USB u need to select Fat32 default (ignoring if fat16 works or not). I was stumped and thought I needed an earlier version till I figured it out.

    on my ga-z170x gaming 3, i need to let it make a reboot cycle, or else it reverts to old bios. So, i flash new bios, i get 3 restarts, then everything starts.

    first time i updated the bios i went immediately to settings, it got stucked and restored to older version, the i reflashed let the restart cycle and worked.
    Is it ok???
    thx

    My GA-Z170X-UD5 TH is stuck with F4, no matter how I flash F5d (Skylake bugfix). Is there something I need to setup first?
    I tried Q-Flash as well as Efiflash using FreeDOS. Both report a successfull flash, but after a reboot I am back on F4.
