So, I'm trying to put together a PC. I have an AMD 1090T (6 cores), and a gigabyte UD5 motherboard (the 890FX one). When I go to "Advanced BIOS Features", it only shows cores 2, 3, 4, 5. Where are the other 2?

Have you updated the BIOS to the latest version? That chip was released after the motherboard, so you will likely need to update to be able to properly use the newer CPU.

No, I haven't updated anything. I downloaded the lastest bios just now. There are 3 update files, however. Do I need to install each one separately, or will the latest one just do everything? –  CromTheDestroyer Jun 22 '10 at 1:10
    
@CromTheDestroyer - The latest is usually fine. If you are unsure, you can read the release notes for it and it will tell you if you need a certain intermediate version, but this usually isn't the case. –  MDMarra Jun 22 '10 at 1:37
    
I'm trying to install it from a USB. I got the .exe on the FAT32 usb stick, ran the autoextraction, plugged it into the motherboard, but the Q-Flash program doesn't see the USB. It just sees "Floppy A" and "Floppy B", which is strange because I have no floppy drives. –  CromTheDestroyer Jun 22 '10 at 1:52

Heh, I got it. It does see the USB after all, but the USB is "Floppy B". This is so stupid. –  CromTheDestroyer Jun 22 '10 at 1:53
    
Why the downvote on this? It was accepted as the answer to the problem! –  MDMarra Jun 25 '10 at 20:26
