X79-UD7 BIOS UPGRADE TO F12 - Now I can't boot!

Hi,

I have the Gigabyte X79-UD7 and I upgraded to the F12 BIOS, and now my system will not boot at all. It goes through all the startup sequence looking at the LED display, and it freezes on error code "0E". I don't even see the gigabyte splash on my monitor. I tried resetting the CMOS by pressing the button on the back of the mobo, and shorting the pins and no luck.

It so seems I may need to RMA my mobo.

Has this happened to anyone before?

I'm using a Sandy Bridge-E 3930k.

Thanks.

    Pull the Bios battery. disconnect the power on the power supply. Hold in your power button for about 20 odd seconds and then leave the system like that for about 10 to 20 minutes. Then just put everything back and try and boot. If your motherboard has a dual bios then it should revert to the backup bios
