    hm, thats an idea, theres a bunch of em free, and most likely to be dusty, the unused ones .. or is this a USB legacy setting in BIOS? Was this Q-Flash made for floppy-read?

    Make sure your usb stick is formatted in fat32 and not ntfs. Try all usb ports.

    If you have some unused free space on a hard drive, you can create and format a new partition using FAT32 for your extracted bios file.
    A standard flopsy drive is an option for motherboards that have a flopsy drive header.
    With win2K, I frequently used QFlash to save copies of my installed bios to a small FAT32 partition and could use QFlash to restore any of the saved bios files from the FAT32 partition.

    actually, i have several Fat32 partitions, on separate HDs, all with a BIOS folder containing the extracted files, as well as the USB-stick, which i plugged directly into the mobo .. and this mobo's Q-Flash saw the files on HD previously at least once

    i use Fat32 for easy file-tranfer between Linux/Win/Macosx86 ... my default boot is to 64-bit Linux

    the trick here was to reboot to 'Optimised Defaults' BEFORE hitting the 'end' key

    THEN i could see, and navigate to, all 3 bios-file-locations fine with Q-Flash .. now im on the desired f13 [instead of f13u]

    Q-Flash is actually coded to look for a floppy in the first instance .. i DO have a floppy drive but a cable wont reach it easily in this nice Lian-Li case

    thats if i could still find one, NEVERMIND finding a workin FLOPPY these days

    this GA-EX58-UD5 is a replacement off da bay for a GA-EX58-UD3R that had a failed ethernet chip, it just died one day

    i have never bin able get this OCZ ram + v early Core i7 920 to clock reliably, nevermind OVERCLOCK, like it shoulda/coulda

    got my eye on a Core i7 960, but im replacing the RAM with Corsair Dominator-GT next .. w/XMP profile n all
