Radeon VII v106 vBIOS not automatically updating

I have downloaded the v106 (64 bit) Radeon VII vBIOS from AMD and run the .exe as administrator, but it is not updating my vBIOS. A command prompt opens after I click through two Win 10 warnings, but there is no indication in the command prompt that anything was run and it closes virtually straight away. When I restart and check my BIOS in Radeon settings, it still shows the original v105 (non UEFI) BIOS. I suspect it is an issue with Win 10 (1809) rather than the BIOS .exe file, but I would in interested if anyone else had this problem, or knew how to solve it.

What do the two Windows 10 warnings you have to click through say ?  

Have you tried using the x86 executable?

I had the same issue using the 64 bit exe , I downloaded the 32 bit also called  x86  and it works just like ray_m mention.

You need to restart your PC,when finished THE VBIOS update.

Re: Radeon VII v106 vBIOS not automatically updating

Hi ray_m,

I enabled Record Desktop in Relive and used it to capture what is occurring. I only am now seeing one Windows 10 warning. Please have a look at the attached .mp4 file.

I noticed that just before the Command Prompt closes the text 'Invalid Package.' appears.

I haven't tried the x86 executable. I would guess that I need the 64-bit version - otherwise why post two versions?

Hi odin_74 - thanks for the tip, but I already did this.

You can use the 32 bit package, it installs the exact same VBIOS, just using a 32 bit installer.

Interesting. I didn't check this after running the bios software, but I too still show v105 instead of 106.

Re: Radeon VII v106 vBIOS not automatically updating

Thanks for the tip ray_m. I tried the 32 bit .exe, but got the same 'Invalid package.' result. I did see the second Windows Warning, see below. I clicked on 'More info' and then 'Run Anyway.'

Re: Radeon VII v106 vBIOS not automatically updating

I took a look at Event Viewer and found the following:

The description for Event ID 1060 from source Application Popup cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

The following information was included with the event: \??\F:\AMD RADEON\Radeon VII BIOS\amd_radeon_vii_bios_v106_x86\

And also (perhaps more importantly):

The atidgllk service failed to start due to the following error:
This driver has been blocked from loading
