    Default Gigabyte bios rollback question

    Hi, i just updated my bios with the @bios utility to f9 (i already updated to f8 some time ago and all worked perfectly) but now the f9 seems a little bit laggy (first time i'm entered in it was very laggy but the lag decreased a lot saving random settings) and sometimes doesn't load properly (black screen when pressing del, doesn't happen anymore since i switched to "old interface") but most important thing, since i've updated the bios, my gpu keeps having massive performance drops and i should reboot the pc serveral times to fix it, then if i reboot or turn off the pc again, there's chance that the problem returns.. my mobo is a z87x-d3h..
    That's a very strange problem so i would rollback to F8, but how can i do? i saw BIOS downgrade this post, but i don't understand the fact of the mac address, what should i do exactly? it seems a bit risky to me and i'd like to understand every step.
    Uh, if there is another way to do it, i'm glad to hear it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Already tried, @bios says that "the motherboars is protected" because i'm trying to load an older version
    Q-Flash gives me an error as well (i don't remember what is says exactly but something related to a wrong version)
    It isn't normal? I thought that the only way to do a rollback was using FPT
    Thank you.

    I've done a bootable usb with rufus, when i tried to copy the FPT files in the main folder i saw that there were already 2 files (created by rufus for the bootable usb) autoexec.bat and config.sys.. i should overwrite these two?
    Sorry but i never mess with these things, and thanks again for the precious help, I can't wait to get rid of this f9 bios.
