Updating gigabyte bios 64 bit
If i do have to get a specific one, where do I find it?Cos the Gigabyte website doesnt have differing versions.ANyway, one thing I can't remember is does it have to be a specific version for 32 bit windows, or 64 bit windows?I have 64 bit Windows 7 and my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5.In the consumer/prosumer landscape there has been a shift toward UEFI-based systems for desktops and laptops, and along the way many manufacturers appear to have removed the option for the BIOS to update from a USB Stick.
if you have one of the "DUAL BIOS" machines, you have a way to boot and select the OTHER BIOS, should the flashing go badly. First with the Windows Technical Preview-x64and then with my MSDN en_windows_technical_preview_for_enterprise_x64_dvd_5554079
: Forth PCIe Slot So if you have 4 Cards you will have to enter those commands (No need to reboot between each flash, but very important to reboot at the end of the last flashed card) atiwinflash -f -p 0 7970atiwinflash -f -p 1 7970atiwinflash -f -p 2 7970atiwinflash -f -p 3 7970If you are flashing BIOS #1, you need to put the BIOS switch at #1. Lets say your borked your BIOS flashing and the BIOS #1 is now corrupted and you can't boot into windows using that BIOS -Turn Off PC -Put the swtich back to BIOS #2 -You restart PC running "Locked" BIOS (#2) -Under Windows: You flip the GPU Bios switch back to #1 -Proceed to a normal flashing of the BIOS -BIOS#1 is now repaired Bookmarked and repped. Are there any BIOS for 7970 that allow you to increase voltage above 1.3?
Does anybody have any recommendations for different ones to try?
Win 10 is the only OS on this PC, and I have allready screwed 1 mobo with the "Flashback" function and an USB-pen (Think it was a defect USBpen).
I guess I'll have to wait for Windows 10 to become final, before flashing my BIOS?
