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!
Mike

How to Update Your BIOS


By Patrick Miller, PCWorld

  • Check your BIOS version, without restarting your PC, by using msinfo32.exe (as described in the text).187437-versioncheck_original.jpgThe easiest way to find your BIOS version is to open up the System Information app in Windows--just type msinfo32 into the search bar (for Windows 7/Vista) or the Run box (XP), and clickSystem Summary; your BIOS version should now show up on the right under your processor speed. Record your version number (and the date that appears afterwards, if applicable).

    Step 2: Check your PC/motherboard manufacturer\'s Website for BIOS updates.


    Most PC manufacturers handle BIOS updates based on your specific line and model, so head over to your manufacturer\'s support page and check its listings for your PC, because if you download and install a BIOS intended for a different model, your PC probably won\'t work (although most BIOS updaters are smart enough to notice if you try to install them on the wrong hardware). If there is a BIOS update file available, grab it--along with any documentation it comes with, because often warnings and specific instructions are contained in the Read Me docs.

    Those of you who assembled your PC yourself will need to look for BIOS updates from your motherboard manufacturer\'s Website. If you don\'t remember your motherboard\'s model number, you can look it up without opening up the case by downloading and running CPU-Z and clicking on the Mainboard tab.


    Step 3: Read the included documentation.


    Your PC\'s BIOS handles a lot of the nuts and bolts ISO Recorder for Windows XP or the version for Windows 7/Vista) to create a BIOS update CD.Other systems will have you copy a few files to your bootable disk, restart, and open up the BIOS during startup (typically by pressing a specified key for setup options), and change the boot order so your system looks for a bootable USB drive or CD before loading the OS from your hard drive.

The BIOS has been erased, I do not have floppy, but i want to write the bios


In order to write a BIOS, you would have to have acess to very expensive equipment as well as be amazingly good at whatever programming language they use to write BIOS (something like Assemly or some other hardware-level language). In short, you can't do it.
See the motherboard drivers section for a listing of computer motherboard manufacturer driver and BIOS update pages or our support section for computer manufactures.
Unlike earlier computers that date before 1996, new computers have a Flash BIOS which enables users to update the BIOS chip on motherboard using a software program. These programs have the capability of correcting issues that may be occurring with your computer hardware. These issues can include, but are not limited to, the below corrections.
  • Add the capability of adding new hardware into the computer.
  • Additional options or corrections to the BIOS setup screen.
  • Correcting issues with incompatibility with hardware.
  • Update hardware capacity and capabilities.
  • Missing information or instructions.
  • Update a startup logo.
Older computers who need an update for the Year 2000 issue

Only obtain the BIOS update from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer, unless the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer is no longer in business.

Do not shut off or reboot the computer until the BIOS instructs you to do so.

Verify that the BIOS you have been instructed to use or the one that you are downloading will resolve the issue you are attempting to fix. Remember that BIOS updates will only fix hardware issues and will not fix software issues, unless that software is directly related to the hardware.

Verify the BIOS version and make sure that the BIOS update you plan on using is the next version. For example, if your BIOS is 1.0a, and the manufacturer has 1.0b, 1.0c, 1.0d, etc. You should be updating to 1.0b. If you need 1.0d, update to 1.0b, 1.0c and then 1.0d unless otherwise instructed by your computer or motherboard manufacturer.

Verify that the computer has been scanned for viruses, viruses that may reside in the write-able portion of the BIOS may cause the BIOS to abort or fail, possibly causing the computer to encounter additional issues.

If you are updating a laptop or portable computers BIOS ensure that it has AC power and is not running off the battery.

Finally, when upgrading a BIOS, it is important that your read the disclaimer and any other information or instructions included with the download. Many computer manufactures will not support a BIOS if done by the user of the computer without the instructions of a technician or company representative. If the BIOS causes any difficulty with the computer you may be held responsible.

How do I download a BIOS update without a working computer?

If you are unable to get to the Internet in order to download a BIOS update we suggest downloading and creating a BIOS diskette on a different computer. For example, a friends computer or a computer at your work.

Hi,

Your not going to be able to update the BIOS without having XP installed on the computer.
I had the same problem myself as a motherboard i had would not update with Win 7 installed.
If you have a spare hard drive and an XP install disk then i recommend installing XP on that and then download the exe BIOS update file and run it from within Windows to update the BIOS.
After that just turn the PC off, put back your Win 7 hard drive and your good to go.


Regards.

After installing 2 EVGA geForcw 7600GT graphic cards and srtting bios for dual card, only one card recognized. I believe it's a bios problem but am having toubles getting upate.


I suspect you are using Windows Vista. Apparently, even though the motherboard was marketted as "Vista-ready", it wasn't quite ready. Numerous people have reported no problems with a single video card, but an inability to get two to work.

I could not find any reports to confirm what I suspect to be a solution. However, here it is: A BIOS update (shudder) may be inevitable. Don't panic! First, give driver updates a try. You might get lucky. You never know. The driver's are available direct from the manufacturer at this link: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-E SLI

I further suspect the problem has something to do with the fact that a single card going into either PCI-E 16x slot runs at 16x (duh!), but that two of the same only run at 8x (huh?). This fact could have been easily overlooked with adjusting timing in the drivers specific to vista and is exactly why I suspect a driver update may be a possible fix.

Motherboard BIOS softwere for update


The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.

On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.

On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.

This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.

Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.

Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.

Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
possibilities:

1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.

2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.

3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.

This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.

===
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
with it.

1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!

2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!

N.B.
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.

If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,

the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.

(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

Good luck,

Regarding the hdd size and bios update


The issue with your board is that it can't see drives above a certain size. This does require a BIOS update, usually involving a floppy drive. Look in your BIOS - there may be an option for you to be able to boot from other devices. Check to see if "USB Floppy" is one, as it means you could potentially use an external floppy drive, which are cheap at most electronics stores.

Alternatively, if you or a friend has another computer, you might try borrowing a floppy drive to do the update.

Alternatively, you could go to the manufacturer's website and check the information they have for your particular board. Many now let you download an executable file with the recent BIOS updates that you can use without having to use a floppy drive. Some also have methods that you can burn to a CD.
