    Yes, what about adding the new UI that replaces the 3d bios?, surely its possible?.

    Hello,

    can anyone please update the latest Award-BIOS F12 for the GA-Z68X-UD3H ?

    http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList...d3h-b3_f12.exe

    I know that there is an updated UEFI-Version already, but I want to stick with the Award-BIOS because I use this BIOS extension that allows me to enter ATA-passwords for my harddisks, use ATA secure erase and so on (added by myself to F12). AFAIK there is no similar extension for UEFI.

    In the latest AWARD-BIOS from Gigabyte, the VGA-ROM ist very old and the ME-Firmware has V7. I already tried to flash to V8 as administrator, but the flash-tools gave me errors. It was only possible to update to a slightly newer Version of V7, and this worked only if the flash tool had also V7:

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...%20(Win32).zip

    There are some recent modules and VGA-BIOS-files posted here:

    Actual PCI ROM modules (not AHCI/RAID related)
    BIOS modules (PCI ROM, EFI and others) ╗ AHCI & RAID ROM Modules

    The most important changes to me would be the new Intel VGA ROM v2158 for Ivy-Bridge, newer CPU microcode (if available) and the ME firmware V8.
    However, there are rumors that Gigabyte's Award-BIOS would not work with ME V8, which is the reason why the did not include a V8 ME in newer versions of the Award-BIOS and released an AMI UEFI with ME V8 instead later. But I do not know if this is true.

    But if it turns out to be true, then it might even be necessary to have an F12-BIOS with everything updated but ME-Firmware left at the latest V7 in case a version with everything updated and ME-Version at the latest V8 does not work.

    Maybe I would have tried it by myself, but the problem is that the VGA ROM ist above MINIT module and I read in a tutorial that you have to be very careful what you are doing when this is the case. Integration of newer ME firmware into the BIOS looks even more difficult to me.

    Thank you for any help!

    @VirtualFred,

    Sorry to ask if this common Knowledge for the modded bios. If I apply a modded bios say f8b mod2 to my z87x-ud4h and later apply a regular official release from Gigabyte, will it over write everything(modded additions). Nothing left behind. I know on Asus and Intel some info remains like whitelist instructions and slic etc.

    I don't think so, Z87 BIOS file are 16MB while Z77 are 8MB... it needs a complete new BIOS but i don't think there's enough space for it.

    Sorry but I'm much more comfortable with UEFI and i don't know if VGA ROM can be replaced in Award BIOS... also i suppose UEFI BIOS is necessary to support ME FW 8****.

    Yes if you flash BIOS F7 over a modded F8b, every Ácode, ROM and ME FW revert back to version from F7 BIOS.
    It is really useful to complete and keep your PC Specs or Signature up to date in Settings /My Profile (motherboard, CPU, BIOS version modified or not ...) - Thank you all .

    Sorry to ask this here but how on earth do I unsubscribe from getting emails from TT forums? Everything that is posted here and in another thread is emailed to me regardless of settings and unsubscribing just redirects me to the home page. I don't want to put this in spam but I've gotten 10 emails today and yesterday. I have no idea where else to ask this either (off topic, sooooryyy)

    X79-UP4 F5e disables SLI support, rolled back to F5b no problems.

    The bios for Z87X-UD5H F7 MOD3 is the same one as that of F8C. All these bios are versions beta?

    Welcome to the forum.

    While power off, power cord unplugged:
    Reset CMOS (little black button in the corner of the motherboard next to power yellow button). Hold it for 30 seconds.
    Boot
    In BIOS load optimized settings (F7) ...save and reboot
    In BIOS...make your adjustments
    CSM Support at "Always"
    In "Boot mode selection" set it at "UEFI and Legacy"
    Is your windows is installed in UEFI mode (GPT partition)?

    ...save... Reboot

    Should work ...if not ...tell us back.
