    Hi all,

    I am happy that my story helped someone and sorry for late answer but I didn't receive any email.

    So I downloaded zip file from gigabyte page. Inside is a exe file which is in fact a self executed archive. If you extract it you get couple of folders and files. Inside you will find folder bios where is a batch file called p.bat. This batch file needs one command line argument. I dont remember it know but I took SmartFlash.exe in folder above and dissasemble it in dotPeek. This showed me the source code how this p.bat is executed (you need to understand c#). So I ran it and viola bios updated :-)

    P.S. Sorry I don't remember the command line and have not a time to do this again right now.
    P.S.S Actually when I am thinking about it I tried it without parameter and it worked. I think you can try it if it needs something it will not execute update. But I cannot guarantee :-)

    yepp, just unpack exe,
    open cmd as administrator, go to BIOS folder, and execute p.bat,
    also, if your EC version outdated(have no idea what is it), you can go to EC folder and execute bat file to update it.

    I updated only bios. but be aware, if there will be issues with electricity, your bios will probably die

    Hello! I am experiencing the same issue with my gigabyte p2542g. I updated to Win 10 some time ago, but I had to uninstall nvidia driver and turn off the automatic updates, as the latest nvidia driver version would prevent windows from starting. I have a few questions about updating my BIOS to the latest version (F30DA). I still have a functioning battery, so I would like to do the updating from a USB drive instead of poking individual files. Can you help me with these questions:

    1) Should the USB drive be in FAT32 format?
    2) Should I keep the computer connected to internet as I update BIOS?
    3) And then just follow this guy's instructions on the video: How To Update Your Bios - Windows 10 (Every Computer) 2016! - YouTube

    Please reply!

    Any time you work with files at the BIOS level, the USB flash drive should indeed be formatted FAT32. Most BIOSes won't work with anything except FAT32, period.
