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.
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?
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.'
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:
