Q-Flash not working on my GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
When I get into the BIOS, I hit F8 to bring up the Q-Flash menu/program. When I hit enter on "Update BIOS from Drive," nothing happens. Just for kicks I also tried hitting enter on "Save BIOS to Drive" and nothing happened again. This is with a USB flash drive in the computer.

By the way, I don't even have Windows installed on this computer. It is a fresh build.

It all depends which bios you are trying to flash. I know that sounds nuts but it is not.

For most of the Gigabyte bios updates you will need to go into OS and install @Bios. The thing is with the dual bios that Giga have your system is basically brick proof so you can bios flash in OS with out much worry.

Here is the latest version of all the Giga utilities http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/utility.aspx

Hope that helps.

Did you plug in the flash drive before you power on? It needs to detect it before hand. Also some drive won't work it just the way it is. Gigabyte recommend not to use window to update bios idk where HiVizMan got his info from.........

Your flash drive needs yto be formatted in FAT32, and on one of the red USb ports ont eh back smile.gif

Just copy the BIOS file onto it only, its a .rom, or will say X79UD3.F7 or somthing.
