    *Note to future readers*
    Please try your board with NO Hard drives connected, and the motherboard Driver CD in a CD Drive ONLY connected to SATA2_0 slot before using the above methods. This sometimes will pull the BIOS off the CD

    OK, well it works and has saved MANY users from having to wait for a RMA. If you need the links for RMA let me know.

    Good luck with the RMA, usually 2-3 weeks most of the time

    You were already at the right forum, the UK Gigabyte forum has the info I have saved for RMA UK. Here is the thread >>
    How do I start an RMA?

    You just send an email to the address listed on the Last post and then they will email you a RMA Number and the rest of the info you need

    Additional info also posted here
