After bios reset the backup bios determined that the amin bios is corrupted and triggered the main bios recovery but is constantly stuck on 0%. Boot is also screwed as the board bios has been reset, so I cannot enter the boot menu and it does not boot into the second windows to try to flash the bios, as I cannot get Qflash to reflash normally.
    I wonder if there is keyboard combination to trigger/force the bios upgrade from the USB stick plugged in the Intel USB ports that get initialized during the boot.
    Please help, as I am stuck and on the end of my tether with corrupted Z77 bios.
    Please advise, how can I proceed to recover/reflash the bios in this specific scenario?
    How can I boot from the USB bios recovery stick and how to create the one for my Gigabyte board?
    Disconnecting everything (sata cables, drives, etc, did not make any changes, as well as removing all the ram sticks but one, although the board correctly detects if there is no ram sticks in the slot? Attached is the screenshot of the stuck bios recovery screen!
    When both BIOS's are corrupted, you need "CH341A Programmer" (complet with cables....less then 10 USD).
    Go to https://www.win-raid.com and read about.
    It's happen to me with Z79X (MX25L12873F BIOS chip), now all OK.

    Update: I edited the name with the DMI tab in AMIBCP and saved the bios. It doesn't seem to make any changes after I flashed the mod bios. The bios menu still shows P67A-UD3R (without B3).

    Thanks again stasio

    One more question... Gigabyte seems messed up the product name of the U1C BIOS of P67A-UD3R-B3. I found the name in the BIOS is for P67A-UD3R (without B3) and I cannot flash the BIOS when Q-FLASH is checking for the id. Hence, in order to bypass the Q-FLASH check, I change the HEX string in the BIOS from
    38 41 32 31 41 47 30 51
    to
    38 41 32 31 41 47 30 57

    This successfully allows me to flash the U1C BIOS.

    However, I wonder how can I change the name in the BIOS from P67A-UD3R to P67A-UD3R-B3? Do I need to use AMIBCP to make the name change? Thanks again!
