I checked my boot drive and put everything to default and reset the CMOS and nothing worked. So I went back to F4 and I was back in business.

Fortunately, I had F4 on the same flash drive I had F5a on, so it wasn't a big deal. I strongly suggest you do keep F4 handy, as you might not be able to boot your computer until you flash back.

I actually wouldn't suggest updating the BIOS until you're ready to slap a BD in there, unless there's a specific reason.

Thats my worry, i am getting a AMD FX, but what Gigabyte is telling me is you basically need to reformat to load those BIOs, i dont want to have a BD in my UD3 and i cant even bootup from it.

well i would flash right before you put in the BD
flash go into the BIOS, and load optimized defaults
restart, then shutdown
unplug the PSU and put in BD and boot up

Yeah i guess that will be my only option.

Just had a thought i wonder if flashing via @bios the in windows program would do any justice?

Eeeh..flashing from Windows. Never a good idea.
I havent had any issues flashing bioses using a thumb drive. Just make sure its formated in FAT, not ntfs, and nothing else on the drive. Just the Bios file.

I don't understand the reformat suggestion I read earlier. If you install F5a and it won't let you boot, you can't format, or reformat, or install, or anything else past the Loading OS screen. If you can reboot, why would you need to reformat?

Is this a suggestion that you reformat when you go from PII to BD, or when you go from F4 to F5a? If F5a only works with BD, it would have been nice if they mentioned that somewhere.

Okay so a bit of news i got here from a Gigabyte rep responce.
Quote:
With F5A bios, 990FXA-UD3 could works with AMD FX or Penom II x6 processors.

So this is leading me to believe it is a CPU issue, as i have an Phenom II x4 955. Can anyone confirm using an x6 with F5A bios for UD3 boot up fine? and/or x4 users using UD5/7 with latest bios (AGESA 1.1.0.0 code) also get the "Loading Operating System" hang?

I am using F6e with my UD7, however, yes I have a 1090t.
