"You will not find the BIOS on the hard drive.
It is stored on a chip directly on the motherboard."

You clearly have not researched this at all and pulled it out of your proverbial a$$!

Gigabyte uses this god forbidden technology to make it damn near impossible to recover from.

The motherboard indeed writes to the hard drive, but not in a user friendly manner, in fact it stores it in the hidden area of the hard drive where it finds it difficult to locate.

So far after 2 months of searching for an answer, I have concluded that gigabyte will receive no more money from me, ever again!

Does not answer your question I know, but I have failed to locate one after 2 months.

Ohh and replacement of bios chip is a no go as some brain dead technician gigabyte decided it be fun to solder it straight into the board!

You will not find the BIOS on the hard drive.
It is stored on a chip directly on the motherboard.

You can access the BIOS by pressing one or more keys during startup BEFORE your operating system loads. Which key(s) you have to press depends on your computer. You have to find that exact information in your manual, but you can look at this site and see if you can find the right one.

What do you want to do? - Why are you looking for the BIOS?

When i start my computer it show the following : " can not find bios image on hard drive or diskette "


Hi,
This error message means that the BIOS is corrupted on your PC. It is trying to find a duplicate copy from the Hard Drive of your PC. Each Motherboard stores a back-up copy of its BIOS settings on the Hard Drive. Do you still have the original Hard Drive that came with the PC? If you still has the original Motherboard CD that came with the PC you might want to use it but I honestly think it will not work. This is a known issue with a Gigabyte Motherboard. You might end up replacing the Motherboard on your PC.
Hope this help a bit. If you got any questions please feel free to shoot me a message
Thanks!

Scanning BIOS Image in Hard Drive


Your BIOS to your GA-8I848P-G Motherboard would be flashable to the BIOS chip on the Board it's self. Make sure you read Gigabytes BIOS flash instructions. If the board is up and running Windows, then Gigabyte has there LIVE BIOS update you can run from there website!

Good luck..

ACCESS A BIOS


Hi,
I'm not quite sure what it is you exactly want here but if you need to get into the BIOS utility then as the computer is starting up repeatedly tap the Del key or the Esc key.

Replaced battery, now goes to POST & unable to create RAID


BIOS needs set up again. Look @ hard drive setup in particular. If you have SATA drives the put them in IDE mode.

Gigabyte Motherboard wont flash bios


your bios has been corrupted.

The AWARD BIOS has a similar procedure to AMI. To recover an AWARD BIOS you will need to create a bootable floppy diskette and add the desired BIOS file (we recommend using the most recent). Award BIOS's generally are in .BIN format, where as AMI was .ROM format. You will also add an AWARD flash utility (usually awdflash.exe) and an AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the 'system block' like the AMI BIOS does. You will need to add the commands necessary to flash the BIOS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The system will run the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, which contains the flash instructions.

Note: 12345678.BIN represents the name of your BIOS.

Step by Step:
1. Create a bootable floppy diskette or bootable dos cd /usb drive
2. Copy the BIOS file and flash utility to the disk
3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines

@ECHO OFF
awdflash 12345678.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r

Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 12345678.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using. The parameters are explained here:

py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot

Remove disk and restart computer

PC won't boot if SATA drive connected, drive works fine if plugged afterward


Try Hirens Boot CD. It has a lot of programs on it to detect format etc.
I think your hard drive has a missing or corrupt MBR and it needs to be replaced.
When I have had a hard dive not recognized I hve used Super Fdisk to format and reset hard drive.
On the boot disk
