Anyone own a Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 7, need help with BIOS.

So this mobo has 2 bios; primary and backup. All of a sudden, the primary bios just died. It won't post. If you force it to use the primary bios via the hard switch, it turns on but won't post (just blinking cursor). If you force backup bios, it posts fine and no issues thereafter. If you force auto, it will detect the primary as "dead" and failover to the backup, post fine and no issues thereafter.

I've scoured the internet on different ways to flash the bios back from the backup to the primary to no avail. Some mentioned playing with the bios chip pins.

Has anyone here experienced this and was able to bring back the primary bios? If so, can you elaborate in detail what you did so i can copy it? Or am i just stuck with running on the backup bios until that dies too?

Thanks in advance!
