Hi Everybody

I have a GA H110M-H DDR3 mobo with BIOS version F3. I need to use a Intel i5 7400, but i 'm having errors during the update to F20 BIOS version. I receive a message "Image BIOS Error", but i download the BIOS file in the Gigabyte page.

Anyone can help me?

Thanks a lot!

All hardware on the P67/Z68  boards are specific, based on AWARD BIOS (CPU and PWM controller,etc..).
So,to implement UEFI BIOS was been big ordeal.
Second limitation is BIOS chip size .

New Forum

as you said "BIOS Chip Size" but if look at board specification of two boards having z68 chipset but one is support and other is not support UEFI even after they both board have same size of BIOS chip.

GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3-rev 1.0 (According specification of Gigabyte website)
http://www.gigabyte.us/Motherboard/GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3-rev-10#sp

BIOS   
2 x 32 Mbit flash
Use of licensed AWARD BIOS
Support for DualBIOS™
PnP 1.0a, DMI 2.0, SM BIOS 2.4, ACPI 1.0b


GA-Z68X-UD7-B3-rev 1.0
http://www.gigabyte.us/Motherboard/GA-Z68X-UD7-B3-rev-10#sp

BIOS   
2 x 32 Mbit flash
Use of licensed AWARD BIOS
Support for DualBIOS™
PnP 1.0a, DMI 2.0, SM BIOS 2.4, ACPI 1.0b


may we know why this double standards with same size of bios and same chip set.

pardon (for words double standards)

Thanks

PS:- why i'm here because system need uefi bios according tech guy and i don't want to build new PC if my old PC can support my requirements but for i need 4TB of drive with UEFI(as per tech guy)

Hi Guys,
I managed to get my hands on a brand new Rev 1.0 P965-DQ6 for a retro build and was trying to find the beta bios F12j for it as it allows unofficial support for the 45nm cpu's . If anyone knows if any other biose's , even official bios allows the use of 45nm on this board i would be grateful for a link to them if possible. i have a X5470 Xeon i want to put in and push it to over 4ghz wwhich the chip is easily capable of.

many thanks

Gordy!

Greetings,
Good questions, simple answer. 

While hardware can always be a mitigating factor, the decision was likely due to which board was selling better or was anticipated to have more longevity.

Here is my modded bios for Gigabyte Z77-HD3 rev 1.0:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/sodbiqob5gp7szh/z77hd3-f3.zip
It's based on a unofficial F3 bios found on softpedia. Added NVME support from a newer Z79 bios. It's works like a charm with my Patriot Hellfire 240Gb M.2 SSD inserted on the fastest PCIe slot (moved video card to a slower one).
If Windows won't install you must safe erase SSD with software provided by manufacturer (in my case patriot toolbox).
Have fun!

The simple answer is no, you cannot use the BIOS for one motherboard on a different model with the same chipset.

This is because of the different components used on each different motherboard and the way that the BIOS has been configured to work with the basic chipset and other hardware.

If you try to flash the BIOS with a different model's BIOS it will usually fail and give a warning that the BIOS is the incorrect version.

Rather than flashing the BIOS have you tried to run the 3Tb+ unlock utility?
You can download it from here: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3-rev-10#support-dl and I would try this rather than attempting to flash the BIOS.

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.
