    I've re-updated the BIOS to FC. During the QFlash, there's an option to keep DMI data. It was enabled so I've disabled it during this most recent flash. Still having the same issues, unfortunately.

    Please try flashing back from DOS this time, using FlashSPI

    Add these switches to your command line like so:
    Code:
    flashspi.exe gaep45ud3p.FB /c /d /e /r
    Do note in the above command line the motherboard/BIOS name may not be exact as to what you are using, just change to match the file you have.

    Going back to the old BIOS that worked before should correct this without issue. Can or have you tested your card since this started on another PC yet? Just wondering

    Whenever I set the boot priority to the USB drive, after I reboot it the machine doesn't stay on longer than 30 seconds. No video, just an endless reboot cycle. I have to flash CMOS just to get to the BIOS again. This is beyond frustrating. At what point is an RMA issued for this clunker?

    Then don't set any boot order in the BIOS. Use the F12 boot menu. Your USB stick is located under "Hard Drives" in this menu.

    Hope this helps stop the annoyance. IMO people should always use F12. Nopoint having to mess with boot order all the time. Set boot order to HDD, CD-ROM, Disabled for priorities 1, 2 and 3. You can then boot from any other media you want by hitting F12.

    Yes, please use F12 Boot menu to choose your USB Stick by name. First in this menu select +Hard Disk HDD, then a new screen will appear and you should see your USB Stick by name or some generic name that is obviously not your Hard Drives, choose it and it will boot to USB.

    If you are trying to boot to USB bootable DOS stick and failing using this method then you likely did not make your USB Stick bootable correctly. If you need help with that let us know

    I'm following the instructions located here to create the USB boot disk:
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    After formatting the drive as a boot drive (no files appear in the newly formatted USB drive). I drop the 3 BIOS driver files onto it, but can't get the system to boot. The three files are:

    autoexec.bat
    flashspi.exe
    P45UD3P2.FC

    There is no BIOS.exe file to extract using winrar as described in the instructional.

    The ONLY file you need to manually copy to the USB Stick is the actual BIOS file, please redo the disk stick starting from scratch and copy only the P45UD3P2.FC file onto the disk.

    The reason you are not seeing what the program copies onto it to make it bootable is because you have not enabled viewing hidden and hidden system files in folder options. If you do enable this, do not look/compare the files and copy over ones that appear to have been skipped or it will not work. They are left out for a reason.

    Set it up with the bootable USB Program as guide mentions, and do only those steps. Then copy the P45UD3P2.FC file and reboot your machine. Then hit F12 to get to the boot menu, and then choose Hard Disk Drive HDD+ and then on the next screen you will see your USB Stick by name or generic name that does not look like your HDD. Choose that and it will boot to DOS

    BIOS.exe? Not sure what you are refering to, but I likely meant that as a generic term in regards to the BIOS downloaded exe (SFX) file from Gigabyte that contains the three BIOS flashing files.

    I realized they may be hidden files, but when I set the folder options to show hidden files, nothing is in there.

    I try to boot from the USB drive anyways and am presented with the list of options:

    Floppy
    HDD
    CD-ROM
    USB-FDD
    USB-ZIP
    USB-CDROM
    USB-HDD

    No matter which of the USB options I choose, it boots straight into windows.
