I am having trouble upgrading to Windows 8 from win 7 and MS is suggesting, after two days of trouble shooting the problem that I update to the latest bios.

Systems specs- see sig...
windows 7 ver.6.1.7601 service pack 1
CPU- E8500
MB Gigabyte X48-DQ6 F6

I have never flashed my bios before and Am not sure which bios is most current given the MB is discontinued.
I am not overclocking.

Choices form Gigabyte web site are F7 and F8D-beta.

all suggestions appreciated.
