just bought a new gigabyte board GA-880GM-UD2H (rev1) tried the usual method of bios update via award bios tool (147) award bios , same version as my other motherboards (all successfully modded) using SSV3 method, but the new bios ver:F8 would not modd using the above SSV3 method ,giving the error "unable to perform an SSV3 mod as there is no EPA module." not knowing that much about the other methods I tried SSV1 mothod and it appeared to work showing up as successful . I did ask if this would be ok on this forum but got no replies , so being an idiot I flashed the bios the same way I have allways done with Gigabyte boards ,and totally bricked it ,the only things working were the hard drive and system fans , no light from dvd or floppy no graphics . completely fu**ed. I phoned the place I got it from and told them it was dead as soon as I fitted it ,and a new board is on the way . I have today tried a different approach ,I downloaded all of the bios versions ,from f2 to f8 ,and tried to mod all of them using the normal (for gigabyte) ssv3 method . f2 to f6 all modded ok using ssv3 ,7 and 8 gave the above (no epa module) error ,but i find that if I choose SSV3 and advanced and select ACPIBTL at end ,f7and f8 will now mod . was I totally wrong using ssv1 and why .and what advice would you give ,try the earlier version bios(f6 ) modded with ssv3 .or the later F8 using ssv3/ ACPIBTL at end version.
