    Default Can't update Gigabyte X58 UD5 BIOS in Q-flash problem!

    Hello,

    today i flashed my BIOS to F6D to test if I'd overclock better , but it didn't help. Then I wanted to flash my BIOS back to F7D again but Q-flash says the BIOS is not valid?!

    How can I update my BIOS again?

    Motherboard : Gigabyte X58 UD5
    CPU : i7 920
    Current BIOS F6D

    Well that was a bit late but thank you!

    I was looking for a good post on how to use Qflash because I am just using Gigabyte boards for the first time. I switched from Asus and Love this board. But I used to use their windows based utility and never had a problem.

    But it seems the consensus is that using those will brick your motherboard eventually so naturally I dont want to use @BIOS to update my Bios.


    The thing is that I will have an I9 6 core Gulftown that a friend has in testing right now and I need to update my BIOS to the F9m BIOS to support it and I am not ready to Flash it based on the posts I have read because it seems everyone is having issues with all the tools. I would like an actual step by step and cannot find one anywhere. I see there is one on this site but it has so much basic information on it and not enough detailed information for me to be comfortable that there is not another step in there somewhere. I mean...

    1. What if its supposed to take like 20 minutes to update and I am used to 1 minute updates with ASUS flash utilities and I think its done and stop it in the middle and brick my motherboard?

    2. There should be a literal, What your going to see. what to choose based on a USB stick flash, ( I already have my stick bootable and dont know if that will mess up the flash done without the stick being bootable)

    3. What about how long each process takes give or take a few minutes.

    See some of us have NEVER had to use DOS or a DOS application and would like to know what to expect when we flash a BIOS. I am certainly capable of following directions and i get anxious every time I flash a Bios because you never know when that 1 time will come when you brick your BIOS. I would like to aviod User error at all costs since that will cause me to have to RMA my board and I dont really want someones broken half repaired board because it is my understanding that they just fix these boards and resend them out to someone else. And if that is the case then why would I want someone elses problem....Example....

    Say I have a bad lan on my board and I RMA it.. They take my RMAed board and fix the LAN and send it to someone else. Now if some other issue caused that LAN to break then its just going to break again and now not under the warranty since GIGABYTES warranty is from the date of Manufacture and not from the purchase date. Now that person gets a board with a LAN that works for a week and then gets fried again by some volt of current from somewhere else. now hes stuck with a bad board. That is the #1 reason I do NOT want to EVER RMA My motherboard!!

    Anyway If someone could make a troubleshooting post with how to flash the BIOS without a floppy. ( I mean dont even put anything about a floopy in it!!!) that is the one thing that everyone still does and no one has a floppy drive anymore. So we have to look at new examples using antiquated equipment. It's just not right to even talk about a floppy anymore. Especially since the USB will work just like one. I think they should even take the option out of the BIOS totally and make it all USB. Just maybe make a setting for USB as a floppy. I would bet more people would appreciate that then some next great worthless feature. I know I would!


    Sorry so long. I just dont know any other way to say all that in one sentence!

    just use a usb stick formatted in fat32,or make a small 10mb hard drive partition again formatted in fat32 and download the bios from gigabyte,extract it and save it to the usb or hd partition it will be in bin file and then restart pc at splash screen press "end" key and follow onscreen prompts it will only take about 1 minute to flash and thats it
