Need help, with update to bios/fixing graphics card issue.


So I have a DH61CR, i cant update the bios (current version 0020), says "legacy mode" went into bios and selected the option to try at booting ueif, but i guess that it was legacy when windows 10 was installed, im at my ends wits with this one, the reason i was trying to update bios was due to a new graphics card that i just paid for along with new ddr3 ram i installed. Heres a stat sheet of my computers guts, in the attachment. the graphics card im trying to install is a RADEON RX560 4gb gddr5.

ANY OTHER information, from msinfo32 ect i can provide as well if needed.

First of all, in order to do a full and proper UEFI install, you need,


  1. UEFI enabled in the BIOS.
  2. Windows 10 installation media set up for UEFI install. I do this using Rufus to format the media and telling it to specifically use GPT partitioning.
  3. Boot from this media using F10 and selecting the UEFI entry in the list of possible boot devices.
  4. When you get to the scene where you pick the partition to install to,
    1. Delete *all* partitions on the target device (necessary to ensure that a new GPT partition table is created).
    2. Tell the installer to install to the free space on the drive (which now encompasses the entire drive).


Ok, that said, if by "BIOS 20", you mean BIOS BEH6110H.86A.0020.2011.0218.1538, then this will never work. You need to update to the latest available BIOS, namely BIOS 120 (BEH6110H.86A.0120.2013.1112.1412).


To get there, there are special instructions in the BIOS Release Notes file (here: ).


For information on BIOS installation, consult these files:


  1. BIOS update instructions:
  2. BIOS recovery instructions:
  3. BIOS update instructions to support 3rd generation Core processors:


Since updating to the latest BIOS is also updating your board to support 3rd generation Core processors, this third document is very important to read.


Finally, let me add that you need to follow the instructions to the letter. Any deviation from the process could result in a permanently dead board. No shortcuts, follow the instructions exactly.


Hope this helps,
