I have a DH77KC that has not been updated for many years. I have a USB SSD for Veeam backups and having it connected at startup sometimes causes confusion that I sought to resolve with a newer BIOS. I looked and saw that the files had been taken down and got a download that user Al.Hill was kind enough to post. I attempted the upgrade and got the following message "Capsule Header Invalid, System will reset..." From reading online it seems there may be a mid point upgrade needed instead of bounding from the current revision (not seeing my note right now or I'd tell you what I have) all the way to 112?
@SRose That is incorrect. The current bios is 0112 (KC0112.bio) for the DH77KC, which I have attached. Please verify your motherboard model number and bios.
Also, here is a link to the release notes:
Put the .bio file on a FAT32 formatted usb stick and use the F7 method to update. If that fails, use the bios recovery to install 0112.
The current BIOS that is running on my motherboard now is BLH6710H.86A.0146.2011.1222.1415 and I realize the 112 is the newest for the DH77KC.
Strangely enough I am seeing DH67GD as the tag on this motherboard so apparently it was swapped out over the years and I forgot that detail. Guess it's lucky I didn't brick my board.
So, do you need a bios for the DH67GD? You have 0146. The latest/last bios for that board is 0163, and I have attached it.
Also, here are the release notes:
Hello @AlHill , is there any chance to get earlier version of that BIOS for DH77KC, the one that does not exceed 8MB in size? The latest one attached here is 9.5MB after unzipping, I have a damaged board that needs BIOS reinstall but it must have the same BIOS version as previously installed. Is there any repository with old BIOS versions?
I'm unable to tell the exact rev, it's probably rev.1 (xxx). The board is not showing any BIOS screens, so F2 doesn't work, recovery doesn't help either... The board bricked after power shutdown (UPS didn't keep the power long enough). If there is any BIOS archive with older versions I can check which one would work.
There were a couple dozen bios updates to this board. If you are not seeing any bios screen, and recovery did not work, it is unlikely you will be successful. And, depending on what bios you had, you may not be able to go back to just any version.

You really should be using the latest available BIOS. Just because a BIO file is bigger than 8MB does not mean that the BIOS will not fit in the flash component. You also do not need the same BIOS version that you had previously - but, if you can identify which version that is, I will see if I can get it for you.
What versions I have are in the attached ZIP file, along with the release notes.
