    Default Bios id error (ex58-ud5).......

    From my failed attempted Hijack with some edits.(RED) Mods i guess you can remove my Post from the Main BIOS Checksum thread.......
    I'm trying to flash my Older EX58-UD5 to f13t but it says BIOS ID Error and i pressed (esc to Reset).While i was in the Bios i checked an saw that my backup bios was F7 so i flashed ("ALT" key + "F12" key) it to the Main F12 an now both are insync so to speak.Now if i try to flash it to F13t/j or even F12 (the main/Back Up) it still says Bios ID Error just as before
    As it was suggested to me via pm
    If q-flash has been giving you this error no matter what bios you use; I would suggest using either Flashspi or @bios and try flashing. If you use @bios make sure you check the box to clear dmi pool data.
    Two question though,Should i have Pressed F10 (Shut off i believe) instead of ESC (Reset) when i got the ID ERROR ? When using the Flashspi i need to...........

    A.Follow the Guide on making a Bootable USB Stick
    B.Extract the BIOS (3 Files) to the Stick
    C.Load Optimized Defaults,Set Mem voltages,Set AHCI & Set the First boot as Floppy (Not quite sure here,cause if i leave it as Floppy wont it reboot into the ''Silent'' process again)
    D.Reboot and let it do it's thing
    E.When it's finished,Re-enter bios an set HD as First boot,save & quit.....
    F. All should be well
    I've never used either @bios nor FlashSPI So i'm just trying to make sure i get the sequence......

    Since i'm doing this i figured i might as well make changes to my X58A-UD5 (rev.1).Upon looking at the Bios i see that the Back up is F1 & the Main is F6. I'll like to make F6 the Back up before i try any other versions so what will you guys suggest? Should i use the ("ALT" key + "F12" key) to get F6 as the Back up or go the Flashspi route since F7 Requires you to use Either Flash or @Bios then future updates can use Qflash ? I hope i have provided clear info,looking forward to suggestion before i proceed on both systems...........Blessout

    Just boot with optimized defaults and press F12, select +Hard disk and the USB drive, or USB HDD.
    I believe it will give you the same error.
    Does POST report the board as it should be, GA-EX58-UD5?

    Both systems report the correct Bios & they boot up fine.The issue is if i try to flash the EX58 with the Original F12 it gives out that ID code.I have not done anything as yet to the X58A

    Great that exludes the posibility to flash the backup to main.
    Have you tried flashspi yet?

    Well after reading that Flashing the Main>BackUp may solve the ID issue, it's what i did.I have not used flashspi as yet as i detailed in my first post cause i'm unsure of C.Load Optimized Defaults,Set Mem voltages,Set AHCI & Set the First boot as Floppy (Not quite sure here,cause if i leave it as Floppy wont it reboot into the ''Silent'' process again).........

    I think I answered that in the second post.
    You can set VTT if you know it needs to be changed for stability, or DRAM Voltage, and disable XMP if it's enabled by default.
    For flashing you need no other changes.
    I don't see what AHCI or floppy has to do with this, you are using USB flash drive.
    After you flash sucessfully, reload optimized defaults and make all changes you need. If you have a RAID you need to rebuild it before booting windows.

    I know i'm using a USB flash drive but doesn the flashspi require you to do things differently than if u're using Qflash? Normally i'd format the stick,Double click the Dl file from Giga's site ,point it to the usb an that's it for preparation.Once i boot i enter Qflash ,disable dmipool,select the bios file etc.....
    Somehow we're not on the same Page here........

    Sure if you want to complicate things you can.
    Just follow your own steps just skip C.
    The idea is that you need to boot with safe settings as possible, that's all. So you can set VTT and DRAM Voltage if u know they need to be changed for stability.

    If you wish you can add any of the following switches to the autoexec.bat
    * FYI FlashSPI Switches *
    /C - Clear DMI pool data
    /D - Load CMOS defaults
    /E - Clear CMOS
    /R - Reboot System
    /S - Save Original
