Hi Orville,

Your problem is all about your motherboard you need to updated to BIOS firmware to solve your problem.

Go to the gigabyte website then go to your motherboard page and download and updated to the latest firmware for your bios.

Steps in flashing BIOS
How to Reflash Motherboard BIOS About updating BIOS... The whole BIOS updating procedure should be treated with extreme caution. If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it. If you determine to flash BIOS, you are taking a personal risk of BIOS flash failure. Please contact your supplier or our distributors/resellers for further remedy in case system crashes unfortunately because of BIOS flash failure. Before you begin... 1. Please make sure the BIOS version you want to flash matches your motherboard model. 2. If your BIOS is flash protected, please do not enable BIOS Flash Protection under Advanced CMOS Setup (AMI BIOS) or Advanced BIOS Features (AWARD BIOS) in BIOS menu. 3. Never interrupt when you BIOS is being updated. 4. Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction. Three BIOS Flash Utilities... We provide three BIOS flash utilities at our website. Below are the overviews. 1 : flashbios_qflash.gif A BIOS flash utility embedded in Flash ROM. Not all motherboards have the Q-Flash, please use @BIOS or DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not have Q-Flash. Features-- With this utility, you only have to stay in the BIOS menu when you want to update BIOS. No need to enter DOS or O.S. mode. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional floppy disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 2 : flashbios_atbios.gif A Windows-based BIOS live update utility. Features-- @BIOS helps you search for, download, and then update the latest BIOS in Windows operating system. Caution-- Make sure your O.S. environment is stable. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 3 : DOS Flash utility Features-- The flash utility is a combination of AMI and AWARD BIOS flash utility. You can use it with both AMI and AWARD BIOS. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional DOS boot disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard.

I hope my solution may help you.
Thanks for using Fixya...;-)

Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"


Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

Wont accept bios update that was sent from packard bell after total failure keeps asking for bios file. also clear cmos feature on board three pins one with white square which i assume is pin 1 but header...


Ga-8SIML is a generic gigabyte mobo and does not need a packard bell bios. you could goto the gigabyte site and get latest from there. If your PB displays a logo at the start then its likely that you will lose that logo as the generic bios will not know it was fitted to a PB machine but thats no hardship.
Be sure to check the board version. version 1.0 takes one type of bios ver 3.2 another and they wont load into the wrong versions of the board. F12 is the latest non beta. I just did two of these recently so i know F12 is ok.
suggest you visit gigabyte site anyway just to check how the bios should be blasted and which version supports which mobo model no..

Flashed bios wont boot ga-ep43-ud3l


Hi,
Seems like your bios update failed, was corrupt, wrong version or was interrupted.

It's very difficult to recover from a failed bios flash , but if you are lucky you can try clearing cmos then take the battery out overnight. Then reinstall battery and do a HARD BOOT.

If that does not work try this site and read recent comments.

Good luck,

Failure of both (dual) bios after updating


Sorry bud, when you flashed the BIOS it obviously did not like it..Nine long continuous beeps is ROM BIOS checksum error. Another words you need a new CMOS chip as you cannot backdate a flash BIOS. You can't boot from any disk because the boot process never even gets to the part where you can use your system. BIOS is first when you start up and if you can't get by it then nothing will work. The only advice is use this as a good learning experience and make a backup of your BIOS in the future. Good luck..don't shoot the messenger. Please rate this solution before you log out.

BIOS update (motherboard GA-6BX7+)


Please disable "BIOS Flash Protection" function in the BIOS or by Jumper. About the details, please refer to your motherboard manual.

refer to page 22 of THIS manual

If you "search" the word "flash" there are many references that may be of assistance if the jumper does not resolve issue for you

Bios update


Hi ber2zo,
As long as you follow the directions there should not be a problem. Gigabyte does explain how to flash & back up the bios with Introduction site.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Utility_Model.aspx?ProductID=2427
Read the warning & get bios file here.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=2427
Never update a bios if the new bios file does not fix an issue.

Good Luck!

Windows 200o pinstallation problem on intel 945 motherboard


I think that this can be bypassed on a per boot basis (press F7) on the boot where it asks you to press f8 if there is any problems. (before win2k flash screen)

you can get round this by updating your motherboard's BIOS

To upgrade your bios you need to follow the online instructions carefully.  (mis flashing your BIOS  can stop your board from loading at all)


FOR BOARD D945GCZ!!! WARNING  IF THIS IS NOT YOUR BOARD DO NOT CONTINUE AS THE FILES WILL BE WRONG!!!!

To upgrade to the latest bios  you first need to upgrade to ver 1788 (you cannot go direct to the latest version.. if your current BIOS Version is already 1788 you can skip this

please read and follow the instructions on this page http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&Inst=Yes&ProductID=2063&DwnldID=9165&strOSs=19&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=eng
one this is completed you can upgrade to the latest version here
