    Hi guys,
    I have tried the last 2 bios for Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 current being F7u. I am using awardtools 1.37 and I have tried all my old ones to the same result. I am trying to slic it to a dell and teh results are all the same, with the following error.

    Unable to perform an SSV3 mod as there is no EPA module.

    here is the bios link

    I then tested it with another Gigabyte board GA-X58A-UD3R bios F6m same result error message it appears that Gigabyte is doing something different now as this has happened for two bios updates in a row. here is a link for GA-X58A-UD3R

    I hope this is not the end

    kind regards

    Use the OEM7 Method (with ACPITBL at End Option) or 0+2 Method.
