Good afternoon! I am using a Gigabyte - GA-Z270X-Gaming K5 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard and it is known to have some voltage issue's and it comes stock with the F2 Bios. The most current BIOS is F6 or F7. I have been trying to update the BIOS with a USB stick that is formatted correctly but I am getting a "Cannot Read File" error when I select the file to use to update in Qflash. I have even wiped the USB for the most part and redownloaded the file just incase. I have 3 files once they are extracted. I see the file name in Qflash and I am able to select it but I still get that error. 

Here is my build if any other hardware information is needed: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/9JyXsY

 

 

Windows 10 64 OS btw

Never mind.  I was able to update the bios but the Qflash does not work as it should.  The "next" arrow causes the error apparently.  Out of frustration I started clicking on the file and with a double click it immediately started the update.
