    Qflash is not download-able, it is a Gigabyte specific program and is part of the actual BIOS.

    If you own a Gigabyte board you can enter Qflash by pressing the "END" key at bootup or by pressing F8 on the MAIN BIOS Page

    Yep, like Lsdmeasap said. That's the great thing about QFlash. Everyone has it, and it's supremely safe because it is run form the BIOS in a low level way. No disk cache or OS instability to worry about etc, it's brilliant as a tool.

    Ok guys.I never used that b4 my other question is if you DL your lastest Bios from the Gigabyte web site and you wanna update to them how you do that what's the steps? you DL the bios to a flash drive usb or is it ok to pull them from the Hard drive cause DL my bios to a specify name Bios folder...

    I just order the EP45-UD3P from newegg friday it should hopefully have the latest bios already installed depends on how they had the board in there warehouse on the shielf.I gotta check and make sure when the board arrivals via UPS which bios it does have slapping that Q9550 on it for a side machine to have

    To use QFlash,either hit the [END] key at post or hit [F8] if you're already in the BIOS. You will be prompted to navigate to the BIOS file using the menu with the keyboard (no mouse support in QFlash as more basic = safer).

    The BIOS must be stored on a volume that is formatted to FAT32/FAT16(floppy= FAT16. Any NTFS volumes or Linux specific file systems eg EXT2,EXT3,EXT4 will not be visible to QFlash. If your HDD is using FAT32/16 then you can flash from a file stored there. If it's NTFS (which it should be) then you must use a floppy, USB or create a small partition on your HDD using the Windows Disk Management Console and format it FAT32 with the default allocation size (4KB clusters).

    To flash,follow the easy steps that QFlash will guide you through. One thing to do is make sure "Keep DMI Data us disabled. This makes the board re-detect all settings needed to compile the DMI Pool database. This avoids any crossover problems from old BIOS hidden settings effecting the new BIOS.

    For an illustrated QFlash guide, read this thread which is stickied to the top of this forum : http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Hope that clears things up.

    I use that board on my second machine.
    Well actually its the S2 but ,it is really just a good value multimedia board with built in nvidia gx.

    On the origianal q,if it posts ok you may be able to change the bios if you have the new bios dloaded to a usb stick.The steps are in the manual,dont use an os based bios upgrade utility if you can avoid it.Use a standard direct wired keyboard and mouse while updating bios if u can.

    nb the board doesnt allow you to change memory voltage away from standard 1.8v and has isues with running memory in ddr2 format but many are happy because of its built in multimedia options.

    I dont mess around with the board much anymore but it will run my 820D(2 pentiums piggybacked) cpu happilly at 3.5Ghz (standard 2.8Ghz)
