@Lost_N_BIOS

I did it with /GAN only. FD file attached below. I've already ordered programmer :)

Same Pinmod or programmer only.
Then we can test 3805 with old ME FW, or get you back onto older BIOS with added ES microcodes

I understand, I'm gonna write here as soon as I have programmer in my hands :-) I'd appreciate if You give me instructions what to do after I install it :)
Thanks a lot for your help so far!

Yes, once programmer arrives we'll get this sorted out for you. You're welcome!
Look on your chip, and give me the chip ID, so I can tell you what is best software/version to use so read and write does not fail.

Here is guide on how to use - [GUIDE] Flash BIOS with CH341A programmer
And here is software package - http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...213094641136166

First thing you will do is Read >> Verify >> Save (all manually, do not use Auto, it will erase!)

@Lost_N_BIOS

Finally got both chip extractor and CH341A programmer. Already extracted bios chip.

It's gd25b128cpig (e6g076 ah1622). I'm gonna read this guide atm.

EDIT1: Should I use the socket closer to USB connector marked as "4/4 25xx chip" if my chip's name starts at GD25b?
EDIT2: CH341PAR.EXE installed. I will wait now untill You confirm that the "red" socket is the right one. Also, please confirm which version of CH341A programm is the best for this chip (there are many of them in this folder).
It does not find anything when I search for "gd25b128" or "25b128" in the chip search option ver 1.34.

Thanks!

@pies666 - For GD25B128C use 1.34 and BIOS ID GD25Q128 Or Colibri with this same ID - or ASProgrammer 1.41 and exact chip ID
Yes, as the guide shows, you use the set of slots in the middle, closest to the USB, pin1 is on the lever side.

DO NOT use AUTO functions in any software. Do only >> Read >> Verify >> Save

@Lost_N_BIOS

Thanks a lot for answer and for your time. I did exacly what You asked for. I had a pop-up when verifying "Chip Main Memory with the contents are in disagreement". I uploaded compressed bios file in the link below:

https://gofile.io/d/7Ux5f0

Edit: I opened this bios in coffeetime and it looks ok. Newest 3805 ver with 11.8 ME, without microcodes. I'd download old bios ver + old ME + add microcodes, but I'm not 100% sure when it comes to bios modyfing so I will wait untill You check it :-)

Edit2: I'm 100% sure people are running oc'ed QHQD on the oldest 0311 bios version so that would be the best bios to mod.

Edit3: I did read chip via ASProgrammer 1.41 without errors so I upload this file too.

@Lost_N_BIOS Heya, sorry to hop on the BIOS request wagon, but I'm looking to get the HPET timer setting unhidden. So I can disable it. According to CPUz, my Z170 Pro Gaming BIOS is 3202, from 2017. I swear I updated it to the latest version when I got the PC in 2018, but apparently not. So, how do we approach this?

Appreciate the time and effort you put in here. By the looks of it, you're always busy on this forum.
