Have you tried using gigabyte's bios updating utility "@bios"? Thats what I've used without problems in the past.
I read a thread a moderator made on a gigabyte forum that said something like "90% of RMA's are due to flashing with @BIOS" I have no idea what truth that holds, but I don't feel comfortable flashing in windows. (neighbours might see me )
Can anyone suggest a memory stick that they know works when flashing ?? I'm thinking about buying a memory stick, but don't want to buy one and find out it also doesn't work with flashing.
Well I have had no issues with @bios and have used it at least 10-15 times on several gigabyte models ranging from a g31 to a ex58. Maybe I'm just lucky. Also what about gigabytes dual bios's doesn't that just revert any issues to the main bios?
