    Making a Bootable USB Flash Drive:
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ash-guide.html

    Code:
    8. Place FLASHEFI.exe and the BIOS .Uxx file onto the USB stick
    
    9. Plug in your USB drive and reboot to enter bios.
    
    10. Load Optimized Defaults, set the ram voltage to the specified Voltage for your ram
    
    11. Go into the Hard Disk Boot Priority Option In Advanced BIOS Features Page and select your USB drive as the first bootable drive.
    
    12. Reboot.
    
    13. Once it boots to the USB, you will see a Windows 98 screen, and then the DOS prompt. 
    
    14.After this run flash utility by typing "FLASHEFI Z68APD32.UA5" without the quotes at the DOS prompt.

    No He is tring to update to a UEFI bios from a EFI old school bios. So there is no easy just flash it method, well it is easy just cant use q-flash or @bios. Once he is flashed to the new bios he should be able to use q-flash afterwards to flash newer UEFI bios's.

    Ok, I was successfully able to flash the new UEFI bios in dos. Thanks everyone!
    Unfortunately, I have found this new UEFI bios to be less stable than the older bios, version FD...
    It does not seem to boot with my previous undervolt settings... How can I revert back?

    I already tried flash in dos by typing in "FLASHSPI Z68APD32.FD" but it says "bios does not support flash interface"

    I don't know if there is a way to flash back to a non-UEFI bios.
    With any new bios version, some bios tweaks are often required to run at your previous speed.
