I have GA-Z77X-UD3H (rev. 1.1) I updated from F20d to F20e and now the bios will not detect P0 (Where my Windows7 OS is located). It will only detect P1 (Windows 8 Drive). Since F20d is no longer available on the Gigabyte site, I had to downgrade to F19e and everything is working again. I have 2 SSD's installed (1 for Windows7 (P0) and 1 for Windows8 (UEFI P1)) and will set the bios to boot to which ever system that I am using, but again, once I updated to F20e, the bios will not show P0 as an available boot option.

I have just got a B85M-D3H motherboard and notice the BIOS version is F8. I looked for any updates and there is F9 which has support for new Haswell processors. Since I have a Haswell i7 4770 should I update?

Hi there,

this is a regular question and the best advice is to tell you that, if everything is working OK with your system then you don't need to update the BIOS. As the old adage goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

Thanks, good advice. But then my mobo has the DualBIOS feature which would rescue me even if I screwed up, right?
As for the notes of F9 saying "Support for new Haswell CPus" it COULD mean i7 4790 not i7 4770.]

Probably wishful thinking with regard to the 4790 as, looking at the CPU support list: http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=4567 the F9 is for a couple of the Celeron processors.

Well thanks a lot - saved me from an unnecessary and risky update for nothing.
I thought it might fix my mouse being slow (even when set to full speed) in the BIOS.
My last mobo allowed the mouse to be far speedier (B85M-D2V).

Well with having DualBIOS protection I thought I'd just go ahead and transition from F8 - F9. Used @BIOS and it was a breeze!
Still have a slow mouse in BIOS though.
