    Hi Stasio,


    Just updated to GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 - F20 on my Gaming 7 (rev 1.0), seems fine but when you try to change settings to do with CPU dynamic speed management (Speedstep), the CPU drops to 800mhz !

    More worrying when I try to revert to an older stable (F8) bios I get the following warning in

    QFlash
    "The current BIOS image is outdated"
    "Please update your BIOS to the latest version!"

    @BIOS.
    "This motherboard is protected from using this BIOS"
    "Please download the latest BIOS from GIGABYTE website to update BIOS again"

    Efiflash (Ruffus)
    "The current BIOS image is outdated"
    "Ask your vendor or visit Gigabyte Website()
    for an updates one!"

    Any thoughts on how to downgrade?

    Kind regards,

    Peter.

    I have the same problem...

    After get a problem getting duplicate entries on my BIOS, I saw yesterday an update to my BIOS, so I update it, but after that I can't boot on my macOS SSD Partition and can't boot on my Windows 10 partition, I'm searching any way how to downgrade it

    Here are my specs:

    i5-6500
    GA-H170M-DS3H GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1151 - GA-H170M-DS3H (rev. 1.0)

    How I can downgrade to the past version(F4, the actual is F20)

    Finally I Boot into macOS but just with: cpus=1 but I can't boot yet in any OS, just macOS and can't downgrade via QFlash, I read on a forum about use FPT Tool but Tried it (I think is a old version) and said


    Error 201: [FPT.exe] cannot be run on the current platform. Please contact your vendor.

    Anyone know how to downgrade? Tried contacting the gigabyte support but doesnt reply, on twitter doesnt reply, on the gigabyte forum dont reply. I need help

    I have the same problem with my z170x gaming 7 updated to F20 unable to go back to F8o.

    Downloaded FPT tool copied all files to bootable usb stick renamed bios file f8o to bios.bin, booted from usb stick.

    Than i'm prompted to choise a keyboard, when I choise the programme does to automatically continue.

    I'm able to acces the files via DIR, but view my limited knowledge of dos i do not what to do?

    Would one of the persons who has been succesfull to use FPT tool kindly advise how I can get this tool to work.

    Tks kindly.

    With the kind help of Revod I managed to get my Usb Stick working and was able to Downgrade from F20
    back to F8o (this is the bios version with the new layout)

    My Windows 10 become very unable with F20, I did not correctly observe that this a bios for the new CPU.

    SO if you are not upgrading to Kaby Lake STAY FAR AWAY of F20.

    Question Re: GIGABYTE Latest Beta BIOS

    Hello Stasio and all others

    I have a new gigabyte Z170X gaming 7 (rev 1.0) and a 6700 non k that i whant to overclock, i have a water cooling kit on order.
    I have Win 10 Pro 64 bits in french
    I have not overclocked the cpu yet
    I tried with regular 2133 ram and it's ok, but a gskill overclockable f4-3000c15d-16gtz doesn't work, it keeps rebooting

    i read a lot and got a bit mixt up.

    I think i make a booboo updating to F20D even if I have a Skylark (it must also have updated the CPU code to non overcklable version ? )

    the board bios is updated to f20d, and it works fine with my used hyunday 2133 cas 15 ram, but not with my new gskill f4-3000c15d-16gtz 2*8 gig 3000 cas 15, that's why i updated to the newest bios i could fine. But it keeps rebooting. I returned it to newegg.ca and there are sending me a new kit.

    I've read some more and downloaded UBU 1.65 and added the f20d BIOS file, but I don't understand how to use it. Do I just update (or downgrade ) the cpu code to 74 (using option 7) so that a unlock bios (like ver F7A) will work ? DO I modify something else ?

    So please what should I do now ?
    · Use UBU (to install version 74) ?
    · Usde UBU to modify something else ?
    · Downgrade to BIOS F7A (with FTP DOS ?) once I have cpu code 74 ?
    · Will that BIOS work with overclocked ram ?
    · der8auer says to stay below 2800Mhz for the Ram in his GIGABYTE Z170 Non-K Overclocking Guide

    o But that date from january second, but no newer BIOS then F7A will overclock non K cpu on Gigabyte z170X gaming 7 ?

    Merci d’avance

    Report on bios upgrade to version F20 for the GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0): Initial boot after flash update via "@bios" was able to access the bios setup.
    Subsequent system boot gave a blank dark screen and no bios access or system boot. With power off, shorted the Clear CMOS pins, and again was able to access bios setup.
    Loaded "optimized default settings", rebooted and again accessed bios setup. This time, worked normally and system booted into Windows.
    So: prior to flashing to one of these KabyLake bioses, my advice would be to first load "optimized default settings", reboot system, then perform the bios flash update.
