But have you formatted your USB drive to FAT32? I take it that you have tried TweakTown already?
No I haven't tried TweakTown. Not really familiar with the site to be perfectly honest. I did poke around a bit just now however, but haven't found any references to the GA-785GMT-USB3. In fact the "Latest BIOS" thread on the GIGABYTE forum appears to be exclusively for Intel based GIGABYTE motherboards as far as I've seen. I'll keep poking around though. I also haven't found any references to the GA-785GMT-USB3 in the GIGABYTE forum as of yet.Sorry, I thought the implication of accessing files from Q-Flash indicated the drives were formatted as FAT. Specifically FAT16 (formatted under Linux) for the 64MB drive and FAT32 (formatted under Windows XP) for the 2GB drive.
You should be able to find the latest drivers on the TweakTown Forum. I know they have a driver archive for older drivers too which can be handy aty times.Regarding the formatting of the USB drives you are of couse correct it's just that I didn't think anyone used FAT16 any more
Just out of interest what did you set in your boot order option?
Your USB drive must be inserted into the port before booting and the boot from USB option needs to be selected in the BIOS first. You will need the drive inserted for this option to appear.
Would that be in the "Advanced BIOS Features" or the "Integrated Peripherals" menu? Or perhaps in some other menu entirely?
Hi there,what are you attempting to BOOT from the USB Drive?Are you trying to install an OS from the USB Drive if yes which OS is it?Do you have any hard drives installed on the motherboard and if yes, is the controller set to IDE/AHCI or RAID? Also what are the make and model of the HDD's?I have successfully installed Windows 7 and Linux from a USB stick onto a couple of these boards using the F3 BIOS and the only time I have encountered the "Boot error" message appearing after the "Loading Operating System" message has been due to the HDD I was trying to install onto, not being recognised by the Windows 7 OS. I had to initialise the disk on another PC before I could go any further.
From memory the Advanced BIOS Features.

I also tried fiddling with the "Hard Disk Boot Priority" option. Same deal, "Boot Error" each and every time. Pressing the "Boot Menu" hotkey ("F12" in my case) and selecting any of the USB options also fails.
