    Done, but i got two errors saying that something is missing/my config.sys is corrupted, and it says that the program cannot be run in DOS mode, using rufus i've done a disk bootable with FreeDOS (the default option) maybe is because of that? i tried to redownload everything but it keeps giving that problem

    I followed this guide and the bootable works with the gigabyte bios files efiflash.exe and z87xd3h.F8 downloaded from the official website (but it says that i have a newer version in my bios and i can't do nothing) the problem is using FPT, i move all the FPT folder+bios file in the bootable usb and i get an error, i should move only FPT.exe and the z87xd3h.F8 file like i'm flashing normally?
    Thank you for your patience, but i'm pretty scared to do things because i think that an error here would be a problem.

    Normally,all files should be in (except "How to use" and Autoexe.bat if you prefer to type command) and you are withwin rare one who having problem with fpt.

    Btw,
    what is your Backup BIOS?
    You can "kick" (use) that to overflash Main BIOS.

    Now i'll try again, but i'm pretty sure i'm doing everything in the right way.
    I have no idea about my backup bios, i heard that updating to f9 you overwrite even the backup bios (not sure if true) how can i check?
    Edit: I tried again but i still get the same errors, i don't remeber exactly what it says but something like "file corrupted on /boot/drivers/filename" and it says that my config.sys have error/errors.
    (and that i can't run the program in DOS)

    That's the pic without config.sys (i enabled the option to view hidden system files)
    using HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool to format, it doesn't create a config.sys like rufus does but even if i don't need to replace it i have the problem anyways.
    Anyway now i'll try without config.sys

    Okay without config.sys i don't get the errors related to it anymore but the main error that says "fptw64.exe -f Z87XD3H.F8 you cannot run this program in DOS mode" remains...
    The .dll files were in the .rar

    HUH....fptw64....?

    Seems you use windows ftp instead of DOS files....

    Only for DOS flashing:
