    Couple a days ago I download this release for my mobo and as is usually a mod it with ISA method manually. I never had a problem modding this board this way. I use CBROM182. It break my mobo.I though I have made something wrong and I do it once againg the samething. So I decide to mod it with Awardtool020 SSV3 method. It works without problem. This tool uses CBROM32 so I mod manually ISA method. Once more break my mobo. So I mod it with awardtool020 ISA method said successfully. I flash the bios. Once more break the mobo.I replace the bios I mod manually with the one awardtool has made and verify it,a said succesfully. ISA method don't work for me or maybe for this release. SSV3 without problem.
    I have flash the bios all time with FLASHSPI.
    My question is that, there are somewhere in this forum, this release with the ISA method mod with Awardtool020. Does they really make it work?
    I am not an expert, so I hope someone with experience can answer me, why don't work?:confused:

    Does ISA method work with BIOS version lower than F11? I think any new Gigabyte-Award mainboard BIOS needed to use SSV3 method.

    And if SSV3 method work flawlessly, why do you want to mod it with the ISA method.

    You should try the lastest version of award mod tool, and if the problem still occure, you should try to contact andyp and send him the information. Although now I think F11 is more or less different than F9 and any early versions because of its new feature such as ACHI1.20 and auto-backup to backup BIOS that might change how things work.

    I am using EP45-UD3R, too.

    Yes, that is another thing, when you flash the bios, the backupbios flashes too, so is not easy to fix the problem, the only way is to shortcut two pins in the main bios and this forces to flash the bios once more from a USB Key.

    Gigabyte boards are always using method SSV3 in the tool. If SSV3 gives a error about EPA Module you need to use ISA.

    Do you have Q-flash? Gigabyte boards usually do. This should allow you to individually flash the main or the backup bios, select to boot from the main or backup bios and copy the main to the backup and backup to main.

    I have this motherboard with the F5 bios.

    Would I be better off flashing the newest bios before I try the SSV3?
