Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: ACHI G1.Sniper B7 rev 1.0 BIOS question
« Last post by absic on Yesterday at 04:47:27 pm »
You should find this setting under: Peripherals/SATA Configuration/SATA Mode Selection. By default it should be set to AHCI

If you have lost your Users Manual, you might ant to download the PDF version from here:

It might not reflect all the changes to the BIOS in the F20 revision but, it should help point you in the right direction.

Big Problem

Upgraded from GA-Z97X SOC to GA-Z97X Gaming G1 BK to enjoy more PCI lane with PLX chip.

It has been a nightmare.

Keep getting graphic card error with my 2 GTX 980 in SLI. Error 43, BSOD, ....

Tried everything. New NVDIA drivers, Older NVDIA drivers, DDU, even a clean install of Windows 10. Nothing works! Andeven after the clean install, machine is super unstable, its not usable because keeps freezing, crashing or going BSOD: always related to graphic cards

More info for you guys,

Followed the basic steps for clean install.
1-Installed on SSD array using usb windows 10 install
2-installed latest mobo drivers for windows 10 x64 (pulled          from gigabyte website)
3-Installed latest drivers fron NVDIA web site

after that all its hell....

Tried to troubleshoot,
1- like mentionned above, change NVDIA drivers using DDU in safe mode: fails, (redid this with dofferent version of drivers with same results
2- Tried new clean install with disabling automatic driver update in windows prior to installing GTX 980 and using NVDIA drivers: same tesults. So retried step 2 with all version of NVDIA drivers: fails

Everything was fine before mobo upgrade.

Beside the new mobo, kept everythingelsethe same (same hardware see list at bottom of post). Same CPU, same Dual GTX 980, Same SSD, HD, ...

Only difference,my old rig was a Windows 10 upgrade. Initially was windows 7 that was upgraded through win upgrade abour a year ago.

Going insane with this. Please help!

Motherboards with Intel processors / ACHI G1.Sniper B7 rev 1.0 BIOS question
« Last post by jcuster06 on Yesterday at 02:44:06 pm »
I have BIOS revision F20 on a G1.Sniper B7 rev 1.0 and all works great.  though I want to ensure in the BIOS that ACHI is enabled.

Does anyone know where the setting is I can't seem to find it anywhere?

Hey folks, I'm working on troubleshooting my 16 month old P34. I've had a few issues since I bought it, first my speakers stopped working after 3 months then the wireless card died after 8 months but that was an easy replacement, but now it seems that my battery might be going. At first it would just shut off on me automatically when I started a game and it wasn't plugged in (drawing too much power?) but now it won't every get to the initial windows boot screen before it turns off. Works fine right now when plugged in. Am I correct in thinking that this is a fixable battery issue?
it works now  :)

What is the website link?
it works now  :)
F7 BIOS is up on the UK gigabyte site now for the gaming K7. The only problem is the link is broken lol.

UEFI mode, the windows loader will use the motherboards BIOS logo
Legacy mode, the windows loader will use its own flag.

Regardless of the above, it means both times your setup is freezing at the same point so changing this mode is irrelevant. Freezes during the install may occur due to memory related errors, what are you using / how many memory modules?

Try just 1 stick in dimm slot 2?

Hardware details might help too.

#1 - Use a Windows PC to generate the USB Boot Drive - even if the app says you can use it on a mac

#2 - Use a wired keyboard and mouse (for install)

#3 - Don't enable CSM in BIOS (for me anyway)

Did Gigabyte Support send F7 Firmware to you via email?

Because the last update we have on the site is 2017/05/03 ?
