    What exact X58A motherbaord do you have????

    What Revision of the board do you have???

    What is your current bios???

    What bios are trying to flash to???

    Most likely you need to use @bios to update the bios to the new larger 2mb bios file. For this to work you need to use the latest version of @bios for your motherboard.

    You have to use @bios or Falshpi.exe. Uninstall the version of @bios you have and install this version. http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList...gbt_atbios.exe

    To use Flashpi.exe you need to make a bootable cd or flash drive and boot to dos and then flash the bios with flashpi.exe. This is not to be used in windows.

    Nice. Updated.

    Trouble was that I reinstall @BIOS not uninstall and install.

    Thank you very much.

    Now I hope my GTX 460 will work in SLI mode..
