    Hi,

    Same problem here... I have been able to apply the Thunderbolt firmware but it is impossible for the HDMI one.
    My computer has a 950Pro just as polypenko in it with the Samsung Driver installed, I think that it is possible that this device can bring problems but I don't know how...

    Just another question maybe relative to this issue. I have a Nvidia Graphic card installed but have activated the iGPU just in order to be able to install the drivers relative to it. All went good but it is impossible to open the Intel Control Panel (even with the non-shortcut application). Is it normal or definitely an issue with all the Intel Graphics line (is there anything between the HDMI FW update and the Intel Graphics support?).

    I contacted Gigabyte support this morning and am waiting for an answer.

    I have Samsung 850 Pro and have this problem, so I wouldn't say your SSD is the culprit.
    I cannot answer to your second question as I don't have external graphics.

    All of you who contacted gigabyte support, please let know here what they answered about this issue.

    Hi,

    The Gigabyte support told me to remove the Nvidia Graphics from my computer and plug the HDMI directly to the motherboard in order to update the FW.

    Have you tried this? My display is not HDMI so I cannot do it now.

    I also don't have HDMI display but I used DVI to HDMI adapter so I had display connected to HDMI port on motherboard and it didn't change anything, error was the same.

    Just finished talking to Gigabyte. They're telling me i have to send my motherboard and allow them to do the update.
    I've tried every step that that they've suggested.

    1. Check to see if my motherboard has the firmware already updated with the BOM being I/C/F7A177 00540
    2. Just plug the hdmi motherboard to one hdmi monitor and update.
    3. Try a different version of Windows and try the update. (I dont have any other version besides win 10.)

    I'm currently running Windows 10 64bit
    My primary graphics card is an r9 390 but i have windows boot into IGFX first
    a samsung 850 evo and a Dell monitor with a hdmi 2.0 input.

    Im wondering if i need a monitor or tv with the capability to receive a 2.0 hdmi with hdcp 2.2 signal already.

    I might wait to see if they update their utility soon instead of sending my motherboard over.

    There was update recently but haven't changed anything.

    What is BOM and how to use it?

    How your Config.ini looks like? Mine is:

    Code:
    [Firmware Update]
    //DeviceID=0x0d
    //IntelLegacyDeviceId=0x100
    
    
    ESMFilePath="bin\EsmFirmware2.1_signed.bin"
    DriverFilePath="bin\BobcatIsp_v1.01_cut2.1_aux_SA_signed.bin"
    
    
    FWFilePath="bin\MCDP2800_C2_1_V1.42_LSPCON_MP_signed.bin"
    Also check your log file, what is there? Mine says something about initializing AMD, even though I don't have AMD graphics anymore connected:

    Code:
    DDC2biAddr = 0x6E
    RamWriteAddr = 0x1800
    RunAtAddr = 0x1800
    FlashStartAddr = 0x400000
    Gfx Selection = 0
    Graphics adapter initialization - NVIDIA: failed! (-2)
    Graphics adapter initialization - AMD: done!
    AMD Adapter num#= 3
     Active Adapter# 0:
       Num of Disp = 13
         Disp# 0: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(03) , Conn(3)
         Disp# 1: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(10) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 2: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 3: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 4: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(10) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 5: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(10) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 6: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 7: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 8: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 9: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 10: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 11: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
         Disp# 12: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
    Anyone got any useful help from Gigabyte? Incredible they're not able to reproduce such problem at their lab...

    Yes, I've done it before and I've done it just a moment ago. New VGA drivers are available on Gigabyte site:

    1) Updated BIOS to F7g
    2) Uninstalled older VGA drivers 15.40.12.64.4326 and installed new ones 15.40.16.64.4364
    3) Rebooted
    4) Installed HDMI 2.0 FW Update Tool B16.0115.1
    5) Run BobcatAuxISPTool.exe normally got: 'Firmware updating can't be started! Please shut down system for a while and restart it!'
    6) Run BobcatAuxISPTool.exe as administrator got: 'Firmware updating can't be started! Please shut down system for a while and restart it!' but log file has been created:

    BobcatAuxISPTool.log
    Code:
    DDC2biAddr = 0x6E
    RamWriteAddr = 0x1800
    RunAtAddr = 0x1800
    FlashStartAddr = 0x400000
    Gfx Selection = 0

         Disp# 12: LogicId=0xFFFFFFFF , Type(15) , Conn(1)
    UPDATE:
    I gave it another try by installing completely fresh Windows 10 64bit on spare HDD.
    Installed all the newest drivers:
    mb_driver_chipset_intel_100series
    mb_driver_intel_irst_100series
    mb_driver_sata_asm
    mb_driver_thunderbolt_x64
    mb_driver_vga_intel_64_100series
    mb_driver_audio_creative_100series_w10
    mb_driver_lan_intel_100series
    mb_utility_megachips

    Still getting 'Firmware updating can't be started! Please shut down system for a while and restart it!'
    Log file haven't indicated that I have AMD graphics now:

    Code:
    DDC2biAddr = 0x6E
    RamWriteAddr = 0x1800
    RunAtAddr = 0x1800
    FlashStartAddr = 0x400000
    Gfx Selection = 0

    Maybe it's an off topic (and sorry for my bad English) but i have a problem with HDMI connection with my TV. When i connect pc using motherboard HDMI to Dell u2410 monitor system picks it up instantly (shows bios post screen and windows loading). But when i try to connect it to my Toshiba Tv (it's an old model but has HDMI 1.3) it does not show anything... not bios post screen not system loading... So any one knows a solution ...
