    Default Re: Gigabyte Latest BIOS

    To re-iterate what Octopuss said in post 1484:

    On first boot after flashing and loading optimized defaults, just before "Loading DMI Pool Data" usually shows up, a message saying "Copying BIOS to backup BIOS, please wait appears.

    The issue I encountered was the following:

    After a BIOS flash I ALWAYS load optimized defaults, save and exit, then go right back into the BIOS to manually re-enter my overclock (I don't use a profile from a previous version for obvious reasons). Upon doing this with F10e, the system would continuously re-boot before the DMI Pool Data part of the POST. To procede, I had to allow the PC to boot at stock. This was the point where I got the "Copying BIOS to backup BIOS" message. After leaving it to load windows and then restart, I was able to enter my overclock and boot as normal.

    I must admit, at first the idea of doing a complete boot on optimized defaults didn't occur to me. Thinking the BIOS was bugged in some way, I tried to flash back to F9. On QFlash reading the BIOS image F9 (the image is not corrupt, works fine) from my USB stick, QFlash stated "Bios Version Incorrect". This must have something to do with the fact that the board hadn't finished the update completely, as it was before the backup BIOS was updated.

    To clarify stasio, the BIOS functions fine. It's just that on initial flash there's a message about updating the backup BIOS.

    That happened to me when i updated from bios "x" to f6c (wich now seems to be 6 final) for the DS4.

    now if i flash a buggy bios (baddly modded by me :P) or if something goes TERRIBLY wrong, the backup bios flashes the version wich did that thing, back.

    i never bothered to learn how to update the backup bios tho, it would be nice :P

    New beta bios for GA-EX58-UD4P is F9D, testing it today to see if it gets rid of the freezing on windows bootup screen. Got the beta from William at Gigabyte. Will let you all know how it goes :P

I thought this wasnt supposed to happen unless you held down Alt+F12. So far everthing is working great. Is there a way to verify what version is on the back up bios?

    F5b is older than F5.
    New beta BIOS will start with F6(a,b,c....)
