Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 11

post #101 of 810
negative, i gave them a lot of feedback, it goes through a few channels and then i usually get a beta to test that fixes the issues, or i get more questions from them. it takes a bit of time as i am not the only person testing and reviewing their boards. They are well aware of this issue though.

I ended up delaying returning the board, mainly due to the fact I haven't had the boot-cycle problem happen in days. Ever since I flashed back to BIOS F6 from F7d I've been rock solid stable and trust me, I've been abusing the board more than usual. I turn it off/on randomly, I always turn it off when I leave the house or go to bed, etc. It has probably been switched off/on dozens of times by now and not a single time has it even looped once.

I'm now seriously debating just keeping the board. thinking.gif

yes its fine, there are BIOSes for the UD4 that work just fine, plus i think the Z68 BIOSes are more immature than the P67 ones b/c of the touch BIOS.

Anyways i told yo flash back if you have trouble with the current BIOS, Dont be afraid to flash the BIOS on the GB boards as all of them have dual BIOS, and it works perfect.

It's funny that you've mentioned the Touch Bios. I have not experienced any boot-loop problem so far but I had wondered also if there's a possible chance that the Touch Bios or the EZ Smart utility is part of the problem. It is explained clearly that after you install the EZ Smart utility, your pc will boot 2 to 3 times before posting normally. That might be normal but what if that really does not suppose to happen. I'm thinking that sometimes when apps are created, there is always a possible chance that it's not fully mature and updates will fix it later. It's not like manufacturers will tell you this unless they are forced to. Just a thought thinking.gif

Here's the video explaining the EZ Smart utility process (w/double or triple-boot before posting):

yea what he means it that it will restart fully 3-4 times i have no idea why it takes more than 1 reboot tho. Smart response tech is very immature in general, its a pain to work with to be honest, but once intel gets their crap together and fixes their BIOS/driver incompatibility issues, that should be alright.

Just type google smart response no boot disk found or something like that, some guy posts with a GB board another posts with an asus making him feel better its not the GB board, and then it just goes on, Intel needs to start getting their crap together with all these new techs that suck. Virtu even worse, but that is lucid.

This thread is scaring the eek.gif out of me. I went with Gigabyte this time around for my Z68 upgrades and I don't like what I'm seeing here. I haven't had a Gigabyte since my EP45-UD3P so these boards have big shoes to fill. After reading some user reviews I am almost regretting having bought a Z68X UD5 and a Z68MX UD2H.

I'm changing to ASUS, plenty of people there who responded that they had the same issue's like I did with Gigabyte, so ...

Has the boot cycling issue happened with any of Z68XP boards? I've only seen people with Z68X boards in their sig posting problems in this thread. I'm ready to pounce on the 2500k/GA-Z68XP-UD4 combo from newegg if there are no problems.

Pretty well fixed up for the p67, I don't see it anymore on the ud4, but the z68 are newer again with new bios & I don't know if it's all ironed out yet (& I don't have z68).
