    Was the guy sniffing glue? that's for @BIOS (Intel 6/7 & X79 series)

    (Note) Support Intel 6/7 & X79 series motherboards (support may vary by model).]
    I think we should be using Version B11.1004.1

    (Note) Support Intel 5 series & earlier MB(support may vary by model)
    (Note) Support AMD 800/700 series & earlier MB(support may vary by model)

    Hi CDS,

    No news about this, we are both stuck. We have tried everything and still won't go to FFB. I am thinking of trying @BIOS just because that's what Gigabyte tech support is telling me to do and it's the only thing that we've have not done yet. If that doesn't work, I am thinking of buying a pre-flashed FFb BIOS chip from ebay and have vinster install it for me.

    EP45-UD3P (v1.6) - Unable to update Bios to FFB from FD-bios_error-jpg

    Well I just wanted to advise everyone that I finally had a chance to try @BIOS like Gigabyte technical support requested I did and I get the same results... I cannot erase the CMOS. @BIOS reads the new BIOS file but when it comes to deleting the BIOS it just fails right away at 0%, it does not even go up 1%.

    I just wanted to add that I was able to save my current BIOS to file and then I was able to flash my backup BIOS file from the HDD no issue at all. One thing I notice is that it does not erase the BIOS when doing this, it just reads the file and then writes the file to BIOS.

    Has anyone figured out how to unlock my BIOS it's almost like there is a lock and I cannot erase it.

    Here is another thing I just realized. My Main BIOS and backup BIOS are both FD? How is this possible? How did the previous owner flash the backup BIOS? I am pretty sure that when he got this board the BIOS level is before FD? Or am I wrong?

    That kinda makes sense that when I by pass the main BIOS I still get BIOS version FD. Is there a way to by-pass the backup BIOS or possibly flash the backup BIOS back to FB or FFb?

    the backup bios usually holds the previous bios, so if the board came with FB, both were FB... if you upgrade to FD then you end up with FD on the main and FB on the backup. but if you flash to FD again, then you end up with both Bios's being at FD.

    that's what I've noticed on all my dual bios boards.

    bit not being able to flash really blows... I don't know how the bios can be locked down like that. maybe we can try swapping the main and the backup chips otherwise this is another option but will cost more money; BIOS CHIP:GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P rev 1.0 rev 1.1 rev 1.6 | eBay

    Just to let everyone know that I have decided to order 2 new pre-flash BIOS chips from ebay. I used the link that Vinster provided. I really hope this will fix my issue. I will post an update once the new chips are installed.

    the board is looped now anyway (endless boot loop) so it is worth a shot... we'll see if we can pump a little more life in to her...
