    You are right actually. This is a surprise to me but true after triple check.
    I ordered what says to be rev 1.0: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128846&_ga=1.252883983.727752906.1478311695

    But I looked at the box that it was in and sure enough its rev 1.1.

    However the underlying issue is still there, the exe cannot be extracted and I cannot re-flash using option 1 to attempt to resolve the boot issue as mention here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...boot-entries-prevent-further-problems.175274/

    If you want to upgrade to F20b BIOS, just put the Z170NG5.F20b file on a FAT formatted thumb drive and use Q-flash...

    Ah that did it. Guess the USB format matters. Thank you!

    Hey Guys,

    I'm glad this Thread is still active. I have a problem with my Bios. I recently (ca. four months ago) updated my GA-Z87X-D3H from Bios Version F7 to F9. As I did some research, it seems that F9 can't run SLI, which is unfortunate, because now I got two graphic cards and can only use one. F7 should work for SLI (two years ago I had two Gtx660's working fine on the same Mobo). The only method I found to get back to F7 (since Q-Flash won't let me go to an older Bios version) is with Eliflash and the bootable USB-drive. Can someone confirm that this works for downgrading?

    Any help is highly apprecciated. Cheers :)

    So how would you go about downgrading your bios then? I'm using the Gigabyte z87x-ud3h and for some reason, I ended up flashing it with 10b, but it made things really unstable. I've been trying to use the backup bios for a while and all the tips to reflash with f9 bios, but it just seems to loop, show the gigabyte splash with the f keys etc. when I flip the bios switch. Any advice would be appreciated
