This how-to guide will show you how you can flash/update your BIOS on GIGABYTE motherboards. There are several ways to do this but we will show you two ways here. One that’s fast, if you do this only once per year and one that’s faster if you do it more often (of if you flash other GIGABYTE motherboards when you produce PCs for friends).
Do you always get the message: ”The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running…” when you try to run the flash tool?
Its not so strange, since you always should try to avoid flash/update BIOS from Windows environment. Our software that comes along with the BIOS, when you download from our homepage, needs to be execute from ”DOS” and not Windows. So, this is how you should do…
(fastest way if you do it one time per year).
You will need one file, the BIOS file for your motherboard.
(fastest way if you have several computers to flash, or you just like to flash. This includes to create bootable USB flash drive)
Next time you need to change the BIOS on any GIGABYTE motherboard, you just have to follow step 11-18 since you have already prepared the USB flash drive.
