Thread: EP45-UD3R F11 automatically flash backup bios?

  1. #1

    Default EP45-UD3R F11 automatically flash backup bios?

    Hey, I just got an EP45-UD3R, it came with F6 bios main and backup, so I flashed to latest F11 bios using the Q-Flash method, changed keep dmi data to disable, flashed, restarted, and loaded optmized default, save and exit, and then it gave me a message flashing the backup bios, so both main and backup are F11 now, is that normal with newer bios?

    The backup BIOS is not always flashed in this manner, it just happened to you this time around because you were flashing from a much older BIOS to a newer BIOS that has a new version of Qflash in it. So the backup BIOS had to be flashed as well, you will not see this every time you flash
