    Looks like I near(?)bricked my GA-X79-UD5

    I had a lot of problems with F13w bios, and followed this thread (and other forum specifically on X79-UD5) on downgrading with AFUDOS (Afuwinx64)

    It flashed F12 bios without error and then failed to boot. Instead of F12 I got crippled Intel PXE boot environment.
    Q-flash by [END] key does not work
    DualBios failed to restore (I suspect, there was backup corruption).

    The only hope - PXE accesses SATA, but fails booting windows (probably because of core SYS drivers, like AHCI etc.)

    Is there a way to restore the mobo? Any fail-safe boot mode?
    At least bringing back F13w...

    gigabyte motherboards with 270 chipset are getting new beta bios with ht issue fixed with new cpu microcode. I hope gigabyte dont forget 170 chipset users...

    BIOS for at least one 170 chipset is now released supposedly: GA-Z170M-D3H (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE

    All links however are broken at the moment.

    Yep, its true, my z170 gaming 7 just get F22f bios with new cpu microcode and link works.

    EDIT: flashed and working without problems.

    So, no one replied.
    I am telling How I fixed the issue.
    When killing GA-X79-UD5 BIOS F13w with earlier bios, it is possible that PXE environment is still working.
    That is prerequisite. If you don't see Intel PXE message, if the screen is black, than only unsoldering and hard-reflashing your bios would help (some people say, it is easier to order preflashed ROM IC from Aliexpress).
    So, PXE supposes booting by LAN from BOOTP server. It is a hard way, but you can still do it by configuring your unix/linux server on external machine and bringing a link between them. Never tried this.

    But particularly this PXE tries accessing IDE after LAN failure.
    You can see Windows booting, and then failing. That is normal, because there are too many advanced drivers in Windows.

    So you need a DOS formatted SATA disk. Just because it has simplest loader and OS/shell code. And because there is a DOS compatible tool in bios distribution.

    Doing that is tricky, since USB boot is impossible, and you need a DOS/Windows9x PC in order to format a bootable IDE disk. I used Virtual Machine, where installed DOS6.22 copy. Please, keep in mind, that you have to attach the HDD for direct RAW access in order to write to boot correct data. VirtualBox can not offer this even when using command-line control extension. The raw access is somewhat crippled. So you would try VMWare, for example.

    Then, boot, and flash it once. Push "DUAL" button to switch BIOS, reboot and flash again. That's all.

    The link to the GA-X99-SLI F23 bios incorrectly points to the F23 bios for the GA-X99P-SLI.

    F22f on my Z170X-Gaming7 is HORRIBLE

    Offset voltage bug is back and feeding me 1.45V when the offset from 1.245 is only 0.135

    I cannot enter BIOS anymore. WIndows 10's restart to UEFI no longer works on this bios. Doesn't matter if its fast boot or normal boot, will NOT enter bios withour a CMOS clear.

    Now I have to do all that aggravating **** with that utility (name escapes me) so I manually enter my MAC address so I can go back to F8.

    God damn it Gigabyte, get your **** together.

    What offset bug are you talking about, I don't understand?

    You can either set a manual voltage for your CPU or offset it from the VID. If I choose offset, it doesn't apply a proper one as it should be 1.38 from the values I listed but instead was 1.45V

    I manually changed it to 1.38 and it stays that now, but the offset functionality is not working properly with Skylake

    Sorry if this has been asked but this thread is kinda long!

    I saw that for my GA-Z170X (Rev 1.0) that a new BIOS v22d was released June 30th on the Gigabyte site.
    I'm assuming this has something to do with fixing the errata issue?

    I previously had to downgrade my BIOS from v21 back to v6 as v21 was very unstable when trying to do even modest OC's. v6 has been very stable in comparison, minus the occasional issue when using the Gigabyte automatic 4.5ghz OC on my 6700k - yeah I know that I should do manula OC but despite all the stuff about voltages running too high, the automatic version actually runs better than most of the OC setups I've tried, so go figure.

    Is it crucial that I update to this new v22d BIOS version, or is this errata issue blown out of proportion?

    I have a full system image on a thumb drive so can have my system restored within 5 minutes if the worst happened.

    Appreciate any feedback on whether v22d is stable and worth upgrading?

    Thanks.
