    Default BIOS issues after update / Gigabyte Z97-D3H / fpt Z97 Tool to downgrade

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a fpt.exe to downgrade my Bios Version from F9 on my Gigabyte Z97-D3H. The only one I found for my Board, was a fpt.exe I have to start in Windows, and since the current Bios update I did (F4 to F9), my Computer crashes every time in the loading screen of Win. And unfortunately I updated it with @BIOS in Windows, so I cant recover the older and running DualBios Version.

    I found a lot of threads about this but I just can't find a proper Version for a bootable usb stick with dos.

    Thanks for now and cheers! :)

    Hi Pacid,

    I know your pain, found this elsewhere on TT which got me most of the way there: fpt_z87_dos

    Only trouble with that was it was for z87 chipset, not z97.

    So I replaced the fpt.exe and fparts files with the DOS ones from here: Intel ME Tools v9.1 r1
    (check in the Flash Programming Tool/DOS folder)

    This worked for me on my z97p-d3 so I suspect it should work for you on your z97 board too.

    Hope that helps

    Yella! You saved my hours! Thank you. I have a z97X-Gaming 5 motherboard. I replaced the fpt.exe, and flashed old F3 version!
