    Default Re: How to tell which BIOS version is backup BIOS?

    I know that this is an old thread ... but on my GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 Motherboard BIOS, pressing F9 shows the system information ... but I only see the BIOS version (i.e., F12) but I do not see any Backup BIOS version ...

    Can anyone clarify what I need to do to see the Backup BIOS version?

    Thanks in advance?

    Look at the date on the window that pops up when you press F9 while in BIOS. I'm pretty sure, but not 100% positive, that the date shown is the backup BIOS date.

    Flash the backup BIOS to the same version as the main, then you will know for sure!

    When I recently updated my EP45-UD3R for the first time in about 5 years upon restart there was a popup that the backup bios is being updated. I did not press any keys so it was automatic.
    Was not aware that was to happen.'
    So apparently my backup is also a modified bios that I did not want it to do that but have the backup be official in case of issues.
