UHhh What ? Ok. . . .I think I get it, try that. I did notice the option to disable DMI but, it was enabled and was not highlighted to make a change.
Not sure why . If it was highlighted I could have just made the change and been done with it. Anyway, here is a link to the video. Best I could do...

At the end of the video I slowed it down and duplicated it so you could see it better

NO success getting into the DualBoot Mode, If I take it in somewhere do you think they could get
it to work if I give them all the details ? Not giving up yet, if you think there is another way I would
be willing to continue to try. Thanks again !

Firstly please don't multiple post. You may not realise but until the four hour deadline you can edit your posts and so just add another bit of information or link to the original.

I am fairly sure that I am correct there as if you stop your video on the screenshot near the end as it is trying to boot it gets as far as verifying DMI Pool Data........... before giving up.

I have sent you a PM so please check your messages.

I have decided to answer your PM on the forum because it could help others in the future when they have a similar problem.

Gigabyte's motherboards are normally under warranty from the manufacturer for a period of three years from the date of manufacture. So as long as your board complies there and you haven't done anything to customise/alter/damage it you should be able to arrange an RMA. This is usually done through your retailer especially during the first year.

I would say that your BIOS has got corrupted badkly and that is the failure to boot at all. It could well be that it is a hardware fault of the actual BIOS chip and that is why you can't get around it by flashing the Backup BIOS file over to the Main BIOS chip.

Please let me know what you plan to do in this instance.

I don't normally condone multiple posting but I haven't much option here.
The OP has just PMed me and said that the reflash of the Main BIOS from the Backup BIOS has worked....at last. Now he is just doing a fresh install of Windows etc. So good news in the end. ;)
