When i start flashing my Z68XP-UD4 to U1B, it says he clear, he writes, he verifies the new bios then it show me this: fixture is not removed or switch is not set to "on" Press any key to exit, but my sistem is frozen so i tured it off and then on but im still stuck to award bios... any solution pls ?

Hi there,

for some reason, still as yet unknown, Gigabyte removed all of the AMI BIOSes for the 6 series boards. So the best advice I can offer is to stick with the award BIOS for now and wait until Gigabyte re-releases them.

I did update to the U1a AMI BIOS for my own motherboard (GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3) and have had lots of reboot, shutdown and other issues with it. So far, I have been able to struggle through and I am quite prepared to beta test but, with hindsight, I wish I hadn't switched to the AMI BIOS so quickly.
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.

Likewise I did the same on the motherboard that I am now in the middle of testing/reviewing. It is the G1.Sniper M3 a microATX board. So far I haven't had any problems with it as far as the UEFI BIOS is concerned but as Gigabyte pulled all the AMI BIOSes I was expecting more problems. Certain boards seem to be suffering more than others.

The reason it did not work for you is because you did it incorrectly!! Which is a good thing because that (AMI) Bios is not fully functioning and has caused a lot of issues for those who have successfully flashed to it.

I know I have flashed to it and wish I could go back and undo it, but alas I cannot. So be greatful you are 'stuck' with the award Bios for now.

from tweaktown - yes, but not from here :)
maybe stasio has different relation with gigabyte than runn3r

I think that stasio actually writes some of the BIOS code. I am not sure but that would explain why the fast availablity of it from his end.

It would be really nice of you if you would explain me how to flash. I booted in to DOS via USB STICK, then executed flasheufi and he automatically started doing stuff. SO please tell me how to.

I agree and am please to hear that your flash upgrade went well. Personally I too like mine but I probably wouldn't feel quite the same if I had a lot of problems due to it. I am sure that al these issues will be ironed out as things move along anyway. Glad to be able to help.  8)

The latest version for your motherboard on the Gigabyte website is F8A. It is a beta IOS but that shouldn't stop you from using it. They are normally stable if they make it to the manufacturer's website.
