I recently tried to flash my BIOS. I downloaded the new BIOS from the Gigabyte website, the files I downloaded contained a .exe, a .bat, and a file named F22. When I ran the .exe it said that version of BIOS was incompatible with my system architecture, I run Windows 7 64 bit SP1. However I quickly forgot that it was incompatible and used @BIOS to install the F22 file. I successfully updated my BIOS, but now I get a blue screen whenever windows loads (the error message is just a lot of numbers and letters). I read through the "sticky" Gigabyte Guide and tried Google, but couldn't find a solution. So, how can I revert my BIOS version or at least change it to a compatible version without entering windows?

Just to make sure everything is clear:

    I run Windows 7 64-BIt SP1

    I can enter BIOS, the boot menu, system repair, or anything before windows loads

    I can not enter Windows in any form (No safe mode)

    My BIOS was successfully updated to version F22 (it says so in the BIOS menu), however it is incompatible with my version of Windows

Download the correct BIOS on some other PC, then flash it to the correct version.

Is it really that simple? Thank goodness. How would I go about flashing my BIOS from another PC? Could you explain the process?

Just do the downloading and extracting on some other PC.
