      Any chance of a ten year anniversary update since nobody has floppy drives any more dont think i even have a disk haha.

      Need a none floppy recovery option for my new brick a GA-F2A88X-D3H that looks like it has corrupted main and backup bios if there is no other hw fault on the board, have not attempted to flash bios at all the error came about after upgrading GPU's!

      Main bios will not post gets stuck at Q code 79

      Able to reach Qflash screen breifly using backup bios (power button and reset in ten seconds or link pins 1-6 on main chip) get bios intro screen nothing happens when press Del, End etc then into Qflash but cant flash anything as the Qflash screen stays blank apart from Qflash title header and a mouse curser appears briefly then the system power cycles back to no posting at Q code 79.

      Is there any other recovery option have a fat32 drive connected to sata with bios image on its root but nothing doing hate to see a decent mobo bricked....

      EDIT

      Q code 79 - CSM initialization started?


      According to info here FAQ - LED Error Codes | GIGABYTE USA Forum.

        • Hello,

          I have updated my Z97X-SLI-GA bios from F3 to F9 to get NVME support, after the update windows started freezing constantly that i cannot do anything, after 30 seconds or so i just get blue screens saying:  dpc watchdog violation.
          reinstalling windows did not help, i have tried downgrading to F7 with no luck using FPT program from DOS interface, i get an error message:  fpt.exe cannot be run on the current platform.
          please help!!!

            • Thank you so much, i did manage to reduce the bios to F7, worked like charm but sadly it did not help, windows still keeps freezing.
              dont know if it really related to bios now.

                • Hi All,

                  We have just had a customer drop a computer off to us. They have gone ahead and tried to do a bios update and installed the wrong bios! GRRRRR!! Coming up "ID CHECK ERROR" when we try and flash the correct bios update to the board in QFLASH

                  Can anyone assist me in how to get this board back to either its original BIOS or how to reformat it back to a Z390UD BIOS.

                  I have tried using a DOS FLASHING utility with Rufus but can not find a an option for flashing or forcing flash to update even on error.

                  Thanks!
