    Default GA-EX58-UD3R (rev 1.0) BIOS Flashing problem

    Hey! I have read your "how-to-flash" guide and this guide as well

    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/...ios_qflash.pdf

    When I enter Qflash utility and prepare to flash it says "BIOS ID Error" or something like that. What's up with that? I have the right update version (I'm trying to update from F2 to F3) I clicked "Keep DMI Data" to disabled and I think I'v done everything else right, but it wont work. Should I try with another Fxx version or what should I do? BIOS settings are at default also.

    EDIT: and I'm using USB flash drive

    Guys I figured it out all by myself, flashed to F3 version. I will post here if I end up having any problems related to this (hopefully not).

    It is printed in the corner of the PCB under the PCI Slots, more info and a link to an image showing this at Gigabyte's site in my Qflash Guide >>

    Or you can look on the box, it would say on the label.

    You likely need to use FlashSPI and flash from DOS. It is included with the downloads from Gigabyte's site. You will need a floppy or bootable USB, I made a guide for Qflash but it also has info on floppy flashing and or how to make a bootable USB Stick >>

    Yes , I was worry because on Asus mobos (which I used to use) sometimes it is not possible to downgrade bios version ... but on Gigabyte one's it's no problem .
    CPU Q6700@2.66 , Partiot ELK 2x2 Gb @800 Mhz , mobo GA-N680SLI-DQ6 rev.1.0 , bios F6b/ actually F4, cpu heatsing Ninja Plus rev.B, PSU Tacens Valeo Smart 550w + Gigabyte Radeon 4850 + Audigy 2 + TV tuner Gigabyte + 3 HDDs SATA I/II.
