    Hidden and system files, there should be at least files there.

    To boot from a USB stick using the [F12] menu you need to select "HDD" from the menu. You will notice that "HDD" has a "+" symbol next to it, signifying that there is (as far as the BIOS is concerned) more than one drive to choose from. All USB sticks are classed by the award BIOS as Hard Drives for some reason.

    You should be able to ID your USB drive as all the available boot devices in the HDD menu will have some sort of drscription. If the USB drive has a crappy discription, it's the device that isn't your HDD if you know what I mean. Process of elimination.

    Yes, use F12 key at bootup to get to the boot menu, then choose HDD + and then you will see your USB Stick on the next screen. If you have done this already and failed, then your USB Stick is not properly setup

    Here an image of what a cleanly setup bootable USB contains, not much you can see normally but there is more to it. DO NOT COPY Extra files into there manually you think the creation process missed, it did not miss anything if you followed directions >>



    You can add anything you like after it is created though, just don't copy files you think are missing from the "Boot Files" download to create the bootable USB, into the USB stick or it will not boot

    I got the original FB version of the BIOS loaded now. The video issues don't occur when I startup now. They still happen after I go to standby mode, but that's something I can live with.

    What I am still having issues with is the reason I tried to upgrade the BIOS version in the first place. The system lags for no reason.

    It's running at factory settings (no overclocking) and only running 1 activity at a time, it's stuttering. I've tried installing both Win XP and Win 7 and have the same exact problem. The stuttering occurs once every minute and lasts for about 5 seconds. Video and sound are affected.

    I've also run Memtest and everything checked out fine.

    I have the same board, and the FC BIOS was only available very briefly. You might want to switch to the new FD BIOS.

    I also tried the FC, and didn't run into a video problem, but it wouldn't support both enet ports. I reported the issue to Gigabyte and they pointed me to the FD version. They also said that the Taiwanese version of their website was generally a little more up-to-date than the US version, so I've been going there exclusively ever since. It is in English, so it isn't really any more difficult to use.

    I do suggest FD BIOS as well, and even if not overclocked you may need some settings manually set.

    Please update to FD, then give me your full settings and specs in a template and I will advise back optimal ones

    I had all the previous video issues with the FD version, but I'll try again and let you know if they persist.

    I've successfully upgraded to the FD version of the BIOS. The stutters are still very prevalent. I don't know what else to do.
