Unfortunately it seems the Q-Flash utility for doing this doesn’t work properly (at least not for me).This should work by downloading the relevant files onto a FAT32 formatted USB drive, restarting the computer, launching Q-Flash by pressing the End key at startup, navigating to the files on the USB and loading them.Once inside the Q Flash utility, you find a simple GUI with two choices.Firstly ‘Save BIOS from Drive’ (this can be used to make a copy of your BIOS), or ‘Update BIOS from Drive’ which is the one we want to select.A group of motherboard enthusiasts working for GIGABYTE, sharing their insider knowledge and general ramblings of the motherboard business, the tech industry, latest technologies and trends, and other random odds and ends.

With Q-Flash you can update the system BIOS without having to enter operating systems like MS-DOS or Windows first.To open the file simple double-click on it, inside you’ll find three files (GIGABYTE also bundles some small, useful files to help you update your BIOS in a DOS environment, but we’ll leave that for another day).
