    BIOS Flashback not working

    Not sure what's going on, but BIOS flashback on my Crosshair VI Hero is completely borked. It won't install any BIOS i throw at it. I've tried several, renamed it to C6H.CAP and nothing, get 3 flashes and then a steady on screen for the BIOS button every single time.

    Anybody having similar issues?

    Hold the button in until you see it start flashing fast.

    renamed it to C6H.CAP

    Rename to just "C6H" with out quotes.

    You maybe renaming to "C6H.CAP.CAP" . Your File Name Extensions might be hidden.

    I was googling this problem, and it seems GPT partitions are the issue, BIOS flashback can only work on MBR right?

    I use a USB stick formatted fat 32 with nothing else on it and found 8GB or less sticks more reliable for this purpose. Just make sure its inserted into the correct port.

    I have to ask. Is your MB a Crosshair VI Hero or a Crosshair VI Hero (WI-FI) ? If it is the WI-FI, you need to name the Bios file, C6HWIFI.CAP
