So I've decided to jump into the world of 6 cores seeing as Gigabyte have updated the BIOS on this board to allow such frivolities. Only trouble being: My PC won't boot with the new CPU!
I still have my old 840 which is handy because if I didn't then I wouldn't be talking to you now. I've been trying to update to F8I and the first time failed, but then I got it working in @BIOS. Once from file, then again from t'internet. Both times the PC failed to boot and I had to put the old CPU back in.
Any clues as to why this is happening? The 1055T is listed as working with this board since the F8I update here
. Before you ask, yes I have downloaded the correct revision BIOS (2.1).
Any help is appreciated
EDIT: Just tried it again and this time I got a "MAIN BIOS CHECKSUM ERROR!" message and it started to write the BIOS from recovery. 1055T still not working.
EDIT 2: Tried it AGAIN and this time it worked! Got another "MAIN BIOS CHECKSUM ERROR!" but after rebooting and trying the 1055T again it actually posted. So all is dandy. Seems this BIOS update is either a bitch or I'm just unlucky. I'll leave this thread here just in case someone else has troubles.
