First time here . I have a Gigabyte Ga-x58a ud3r rev 1 which i would like to upgrade the bios to F6 . F4 and F5 work but only recognise 4 GB of memory , whereas F6 recognises all 4 modules totalling 8GB . The problem is I cannot get past the "starting windows" screen where is hangs . Cannot use safe mode or any other option . Any ideas on how to rectify this problem would be appreciated . F7 and F8 throw up a incorrect file size error .

Thank you! I'll try that! I just checked, as I thought I'd double checked whether I'd bricked the MB by reinstalling the i7 930 that was in it, but no, I'd put a x5670 in it that I'd bought for it... So, I'll give this a go.
Hoping it works, as then, I'll have a 930 to try to sell for $10 or more on ebay, and the 5670, which should be 20-25....

|albio5||I just wanted to drop a note here that on my GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1.0, I was able to install a Xeon 5680 after updating the bios to F8A. It would not work with bios F1.|

Haven't visited here in ages. Had a house fire over a year ago, so the upgrade to my 2nd X58 was on hold It's the UDR3 2.0--or was..as I think I bricked it while installing the fan on a hyper 212 which was now mated to a new to me x5680. Dropped a long screw on the mb and forgot about it. It powers up, lights on, fans work but no signal to monitor, keyboard, mouse. Tried all the normal diagnostics, reseating everything, just 1 ramstick, no luck, even tried the old CPU. Anyone have any ideas? No si9ng of smoke, or damage to the MB. The circuit area near the CMOS batter is where the screw took up residence...Poop on me for forgetting about it!
Anyhow, there's a few on ebay.. mostly UDR3's, one is Rev 1.0 rather than 2.0 and currently bidding way low. If there's no hope for the one I bricked, should I bid on that one?
My old PC is a P6T, which I built in 2010, then added an x5670 a few years ago, and, of course, newer GPU's..and an SSD boot drive,of course. Handles 3 more HDD's, and a couple 8tb USB3 drives via an add-on USB 3 card. I'm a photographer so have gobs of big HDD's!
I also have a Rzen 1600x PC, which also survived the fire, which makes 3..till I bricked the 2nd X58 box.... While I was "homeless", I built a 2700x PC, which purrs like a baby, but the old X58's do the job....
Hope some of you gurus read this whining treatise, and can offer some advice!!!

I managed to find a way to force flash the bios, F7 works just fine with the X5680 now. Although it still complains if you change too much stuff at once, if you change stuff like one or two things at a time it'll allow it. Can see why it's not on the official support list now.
Did you try F8 bios? They changed the bios file size from F7 to F8 and higher, so trying to roll back past F8 will give an error on bios file size, so you have to manually flash it. Since these mobos are way past EOL, you won’t see any official support list updates.

Hey, been trying to look around with no luck. But I have an X58A-UD7 Rev 1.0 and an X5680 on the latest bios (was bought this way so F9A), it boots and all but whenever I try to change any settings the system just kicks in the "OC fail" protection. Trying to flash to an older bios but the board says the file size is incompatible, tried in windows on windows 7 (64 bit) and the software says it is also incompatible even though I got the flashing tool from the windows 7 64bit section. Was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of which bios would be best, and how to flash it.
