Thread: UEFI will not revert to AWARD

    Default UEFI will not revert to AWARD

    I have a GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 v1.0 and recently (and painfully) installed the latest U1D UEFI bios.

    Well I'm having some performance issues and the problems I wanted to solve with the new bios didn't change, so I'd like to revert back to F13.
    I've downloaded the files, unzipped, and have [autoexec, flashspi, Z68AD3H.F13] like I should.
    I have a bootable DOS prompt on my flash drive where I can browse to the files, 'flashspi.exe z68ad3h.f13' and get an error of "bios does not support flash interface".
    I try QFLASH and get "invalid bios image".
    I try 'EFI2AWD z68ad3h.f13' and get "bad bios image".
    I try @BIOS and get "the series number of the bios is not correct".
    I've also tried BACK_2_AWARD placed on my C:\ root and it locks up my system.

    I've run out of options, what could I be missing?

    So,you read instructions here:
    How to downgrade UEFI to previous Hybrid Bios - Gigabyte | TechPowerUp Forums

    Btw,many of them return to Award BIOS without much problem.
    If your Backup BIOS are still Award,try to kick BIOS recovery.

    Did you try UEFI back to AWARD
