    Unhappy Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 rev.1 UEFI Bios help

    Hi there. I wonder how some of you experts, managed to install UEFI BIOS on Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 rev.1 motherboard. I've tried everything, and always got error "Invalid ROM image" or "bios id mismatch". I've tried also to install the latest version of BIOS from the GA-Z68AP-D3 rev.2 but again got the same bios ID mismatch.


    On this forum I found these two files, which should be for mentioned motherboard.


    GA-Z68AP-D3 - U1a
    rev.2.0 = Z68AP-D3_1.0_U1A


    I've tried to flash bios with q-fash, @BIOS, FLASHSPI / Efiflash and none of it works.


    Is UEFI BIOS on this board stable?

    I desperately want to install uefi bios on that board, because I don't have money for newer one. Please Help

    You need a bootable USB Stick/floppy and use the flash program that comes with your uefi bios.

    Never mind. I have managed to flash it to UEFI. The problem was in bios rom file. I have used another I think it was a rom file for z68ap-d3 rev. 2. File name was Z68APD32.Ua9. Everything works ultra fast now. To full boot in less then 10 seconds. But the problem with sleep persist. When I mouse a mouse or press a key on keyboard or press a power button, PC turns on but no video on monitor. I have 2x samsung 24" lcd and one is on linksys DVI kvm swith but I do not think that is a problem. In event viewer there is not any error except critical power after hard reset with the reset button. Vga and chipset drivers are updated. What else could it be? PSU, motherboard maybe? How to determine?

    Sorry for my English I'm from sLOVEenija :)
