    Default P35-S3G Q-Flash F5b Checksum=AC00 Are you sure to update Bios?

    I ran Q-Flash by F8 from BIOS screen.
    P35S3G.F5b file is in root of USB stick which I plugged into a USB front port directly off a mobo header.
    Progress bar ran to the end and then I get message saying:

    CHECKSUM = AC00
    Are you sure to update BIOS ?
    [Enter] to continue Or [Esc] to abort...

    Is this right? I can't find anything in the manual or searching the internet. It doesn't say BAD checksum, but it doesn't look good. Perhaps it's just reporting the checksum of the BIOS file, but I'm very not sure.

    Can anyone confirm whether this is OK or not? What should I do? Cheers.

    OK, I just found and read the Q-Flash manual on the Gigabyte website. Looks like this is normal operation and I can just hit [Enter] to accept and comtinue. Because I work in IT the mention of a checksum concerned me, as I couldn't find a value to check it against.

    Yes, as long as you see 4 characters you are good to go. Set Keep DMI Data to disabled and flash away

    If you ever see less then 4 characters do not flash
