I would say that works 100%, nice! Just need other people to try your other BIOS

And if I can ever find some cash to buy a gpu I will test too :-D

Could someone make one for my Sapphire 6870? It's running at stock 900/1050 if that helps.
I would really like to get Secure Boot fully working on my system. I think this is the only thing holding me back.

Here's my original BIOS
ORIGINALSapphire6870Barts.zip 40k .zip file

Specs:
GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (U1L), i7 2600K, Sapphire Radeon 6870 1GB

Got it flashed, now how do I know if it worked or not?

Secureboot works, but now I cannot access my UEFI settings! However, I imagine that is a problem for another thread...

Thats how it works, when you have ultra fast boot enabled you can't press delete to enter BIOS you need to restart to uefi from windows

Yeah, that's fine and dandy. After selecting Manage UEFI settings from Windows and rebooting, I am greeted with a sleepy monitor. I have to either power off or reset my computer in order to get it to a usable state. Even then, the first thing I see is my Windows Login Screen.

Ok do a quick troubleshoot first

Flash the very latest BIOS for your mobo, or even a beta BIOS if it's newer, then reset your mobo BIOS to default settings make sure there is no overclock or anything

Does it work now when setting ultra fast boot? If yes then good, reset the rest of your BIOS settings it may be a setting causing the problem

If no I would say the gop BIOS isn't working

Pull the BIOS from the gpu and compare it to the file you downloaded make sure it flashed correctly and if it has then maybe we need to edit your BIOS some more...

While I haven't reset and gone through the motions of getting my bios/uefi to a point where i can flash it (again), I did go ahead and compare the MD5's of my video card's current BIOS vs. the one offered here.

They are in fact, different.

What do I need to do to remedy this? Should GPU-Z be closed while flashing?

My modified stock bios sometimes gives me problems booting. This is not based off the bios you have provided but is in fact a newer bios that as far as I know was never released to the public so I can't guarantee that it will work. I believe it may even be based off a slightly different card. So it might make things better or worse.

Your motherboard also seems to support Touch bios which means you should be able to access the bios without ever leaving windows.

I'll give this one a shot, thanks!
About the touchbios thing - gigabyte tells you to remove that as it is not compatible with the new UEFI bios!

Any idea why my flashes have different hashes? I'm running the command prompt in admin mode and I'm using the "atiwinflash -f -p 0 name.rom" command to do it.
