    Very odd!!

    And you said you have Cleared the CMOS fully and also flashed different BIOS versions right? Odd if so!

    Can you please try clearing the CMOS Fully using my method outlined in post #2 here, just to be sure
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Do you still see that message if you disable C1E and EIST?

    The latest DES Version supports windows 7 I do believe, you just may need to install it in Vista mode. If you do not know how to do that, you right click the installer file and choose properties and then compatibility tab and choose Vista SP1 or SP2. Then once installed also do the same to the program .exe file in the programs folder (Check x86 and normal programs if using x64 Windows 7)

    Here is the latest
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Utility

    If you need, I can test in windows 7 RC, let me know.

    Yes, I cleared the bios fully, because it displays the message that the bios is cleared and asks if I want to load a saved version (i choose no ofcourse).

    And yes, that is the procedure i followed to update the bios version. (using a usb-stick and the qflash utility)

    I haven't tried to disable C1E and EIST yet. I'll try that this evening. If that fails, I'll try to install the des utility in compatibility mode.

    I'll keep posting

    Well good luck and keep us posted on your testing progress.

    One thing you can try is flashing from DOS with AWDflash and some switch modifiers to be sure the old BIOS, DMI, and CMOS get fully removed. If your further tests don't help you get this sorted out let me know and I can advise you on how to go about the flashing with AWDFlash I mentioned

    Hi,
    ok, so first I tried to disable C1E and EIST in the advanced bios settings. Unfortunatly, no luck, the message was still there.
    So I re-enabled C1E and EIST again.

    Then I downloaded the DES utility from your suggested location and ran the setup as administrator in Vista SP2 compatibility mode. The installation went well. I rebooted as suggested.

    Then I set the ges.exe application to run in vista sp2 compatibility mode as well and launced it. It gave a security warning about changing computer settings but I proceeded. The des utility seems to run fine. Then I clicked on the X and the stealth mode question came up. I tried to answer yes and that generated following error :

    "UpdateBiosSetting function value=85 failure!! Mapping 1"

    Rebooted => still the message.

    I also tried answering "no" and tried Vista SP1 compatibility mode. That changed the error value in "87" and "80", but did not solve it either.

    So... will you guide me through the AWDflash method ?

    Hmm, this is very odd. Maybe this program just isn't made to fully be compatible with windows 7 yet, looks like I may need to test. That or it is not liking your board, ?

    Here is AWDflash
    awd873.zip

    You will need to flash from DOS using this command >>>
    awdflash.exe biosfilename.Fxx /cc /cd /cp /py /sn /r

    An example of this here with BIOS F8
    awdflash.exe E7AUMDS2H.F8 /cc /cd /cp /py /sn /r

    I just realized neither DES nor Easytune is listed as compatible for your board, did DES Come on the CD for your board or did you just download and install it trying to see if it worked? I do see DES listed on the overview page for your board so it may be fine though.

    If we don't get it rest assured after the 31st of August I will get a report on this thread sent in for you and see if I can get an answer from the BIOS engineers for you about this.

    Hi,

    Yes, the program came with the cd.
    I'll create a dos disk tonight and will try the flash utility.

    e7aumd2h.f3a is the latest i could find on the gigabyte support site.
    (f3a is my current version btw)

    You were talking about e7aumds2h.f8 ?

    I just used that (F8) as an example without looking at any of the current BIOS's for your board. Use the one you mention, just edit the file name to that,

    Sorry to confuse you on this.

    Flash from DOS, or are you? I mean DOS by booting directly to dos, not a command window in windows. You are booting to DOS Right?

    If you still have issues are you are in DOS, please add a /f to the switch list I gave you and try again
