I just finished building my first pc (Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite wifi/Ryzen 5 5600x) I tried doing the bios update (By using q flash) but when I put my usb into the bios slot nothing happend. The flash drive had a red light for a split second and then went away. I then clicked the q flash button and then I didnt see a light on the board. I then thought I will do the bios update at the end. When I was done building my pc The first thing I saw was Reboot and select proper boot device. I tried clicking the delete button ,f10,and f2 but nothing happend. I was not able to get into the bios. What should I do?
Hello @Ishan Which bios version are you currently on and which bios version were you downloading? The earliest supported bios version supported for 5000 series CPUs is the F30 which you can grab from here: https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-ELITE-rev-10/support#support-dl-bios. Make sure when you are attempting to flash the bios, that you format the flash drive in FAT32 file system. You may also have to rename the actual image file for the bios version that you are wanting to download. It's not stated if that's required in the manual but I would try reformatting the drive to start and proceed from there. Let me know if you if this works out!
Below is the link to the manual: https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_x570-aorus-elite-wifi_1002_e_v1.pdf Pg. 24 Has a listed breakdown for the advanced mode function key descriptions.
@TS_EmileC Do I install the F30 bios version. Also Can I do the bios with the cpu and everything installed. My problem is that I get the reboot and select proper boot device. I cant get past that.
Yes I would start with the F30 version. I'm not sure if this is for all manufacturer motherboards, but you will want to remove the processor, RAM and the graphics card when doing the Q-Flash method.
Is there any way I can do the bios at the end?
@Ishan I'm not sure if I'm understanding what you are asking. Can you elaborate?
