If you are getting a warning that the BIOSes dont match then chances are that either you have downloaded the wrong one or the BIOS update file is corrupt. Check and download again.

Sometimes the file offered for download can be corrupt, so if you have the same problem again try using a different download site(eg china, or usa) rather than Europe.

I have just tried to check this out for you and from the Gigabyte Downloads section of the website it just doesn't work, nothing comes up even though it recognises the card number.
http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/download-center.aspx?kw=GA-R577UD-1GD&ck=

I tried another way and managed to get the right page.

The download for the BIOS is here but I don't know if it will work. It says the latest is F11

Actually I had problems downloading them. They would almost complete and then just hang for a minute or more but in the end would complete.

I understand what you are saying but there was only one firmware update available if you check. Also the updates follow the path of eg F1, F2, F3 and then F10, F11, and so on depending on the different memory installed. ;)
