I gotcha on the heavy medion. Since you are now using Gigabyte BIOS it is suggested to update that backup BIOS, if not it can cause issues, especially now since it's not same BIOS at all.
This is suggested by me with any all BIOS updates, once you are sure the BIOS you are using is stable and you like it. You can always backflash, and then backflash the backup BIOS too.
Or, if you do not want to do that, worried until your programmer arrives, I suggest switching on the SB Switch (Single BIOS)

Yes, Qflash should be there and working since you are now on all official Gigabyte BIOS. And yes, please go ahead and order a CH341A programmer and SOIC8 Test clip cable now, or a kit (EZP2010 or EZP2013).
It's too cheap not to order and it will save you sometime in the future for sure, if not from a bad BIOS flash then from flashing BIOS problems like this where you can't flash easily.

CH341A and SOIC8 cable - on the way. I will not be scared by the black screen ;-)

Great, once it arrives you'll ready for anything! You did get the cable set with clip on one end correct? Sorry if not, I should have linked some examples!

I attached the picture of this cable

I have the same problem.
Thank you.

@kruchydik - all BIOS in this thread were user specific (has his board details, serial, LAN MAC etc)
Please send FPT backup from your board and I will make new one for you, use FPT from ME System Tools V11 in section C in this thread
Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools

Inside you will find Flash Programming Tool folder, and inside that a Windows or Win32 folder. Select that Win32 folder, hold shift and press right click, choose open command prompt here (not power shell)

Here is command to backup entire BIOS from the command prompt you opened above

FPTw.exe -d bios.bin

Which type of BIOS do you want, that I described on page one? Also, what is the issue you are having?

Hello.
I have motherboards GIGABYTE (medion) z170x Gaming 7 (bios GAZ170W0X.121 06/17/2016)
I can not upload the latest bios for the motherboard to Support 7th generation CPU.
When I try to upload the bios from the gigabyte page, I get this message.

I can upload bios via EZP2010 but I need a version that will support most processors and memory
Medion support does not have this motherboard update.
I have several of these motherboards.

#24 RE: [Help] Medion (gigabyte) Board z170x Gaming 7 bios update problems by kruchydik 23.01.2019 13:54

I did backup, can you now update the bios of my motherboard.
What do I need to do to update my bios on other Medion GA Z170X 7 motherboards.
Thank you.

@kruchydik - thanks, I will work on this for you tonight. You said you have many of these boards correct, how many? If only a few, send me dump from each and name them so you and I will know which are which, each will need it's own mod BIOS.

*Edit - @kruchydik - here is Gigabyte F22m BIOS modified with Medion BIOS ID Tag, first BIOS initially linked in post #6 - To other users, this is not board specific, this is stock BIOS modified, DO NOT flash this via FPT, you will loose all board specific details.
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...619596580252644

Flash via EFIFlash from DOS using following command >> EFIFlash.exe Z170XG7.22m /X

#26 RE: [Help] Medion (gigabyte) Board z170x Gaming 7 bios update problems by Pawellos 09.04.2019 14:09

@Lost_N_BIOS bios in your last post include F22m only with modified board id? so can i use it for stock medion board without dumping bios for you?

and also as i se you can read versions, can you compare last bios from Medion to GA bios?
Medion - https://www.medion.com/pl/_lightbox/trei...s.php?did=18007
GA - http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/BIO...aming7_f22m.zip

maybe it dodnt have sense to update it by GA bios..

EDIT:
i attach those bioses
GZ170W0X - Medion
Z170XG7 - GA

Hello,
is it possible to get this Medion modified "GENERAL" BIOS? tinyupload link has expired in 2021!

My board is a GA-Z170X-Gaming 7-OC with BIOS GAZ170WOX.228

TIA

@Joho: Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
Our BIOS modding Guru Lost_N_BIOS hasn't been online since January. That is why I recommend to ask kruchydik via PM for the modded stock BIOS and to attach it here again by using a not expiring link.
Good luck!
Dieter (alias Fernando)

P.S.: Since it doesn't make much sense to start a new thread about the same topic, I have deleted the thread you have started.

#29 RE: [Request] Modded BIOS for Medion PCGA-Z170X-Gaming 7-OC by Joho 17.09.2021 12:55

I am not able to write neither kruchydik nor Lost_N_BIOS a PM.
