I'm trying to update the BIOS on my Aorus Master X570S and it doesn't seem to be working.
My current version is F3 and I'm trying to get to F5.
Using the AppCenter I can download the file through a server and it all goes well until it's time to reboot.
Letting the app reboot for me will shut down the PC and it won't actually come back on its own.
Choosing the restart with windows as the app is counting down just simply restarts the computer as if nothing happened.
I do not have a 32gig flash drive laying around so that's not really an option at the moment.
Placing the file to an easy to get to spot on a hard drive, I can see it, select it, but the Q-Flash says it can not read the file I downloaded straight from Gigabyte's website designated for this board.

I have a box full of USB sticks and for some reason, I can only update the BIOS using a few of the sticks. They are all formatted the same and I save the BIOS file in the same way. I've never understood why this happens. It seems that some of the more expensive sticks are fine, but any cheaper sticks even well known makes like Sandisk (those I have the most of) just don't want to know. Gigabyte does seem to be very fussy. Just don't know what causes it.

Maybe is stupid but try to delete this USB, create new one FAT32 partition of 500mb example and try put BIOS there.

That actually worked! It's updating now.
