Default Haveing trouble flashing the GA-965P-DS3?

I have the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 mobo with the dual BIOS. My manual says I need to download the new updated BIOS file from their website, save it to a 3.5” floppy and upload it in the BIOS. Well I downloaded version F6 from here:

The file in the red circle is the file I downloaded. The files in the green circle is the files I got when I extracted the file I got. Being that both the autoexe and FLASH895 are .exe files the file I need was obviously the top one. So I loaded it on the 3.5” floppy and restarted into the BIOS. When I got into the BIOS I choose the load from floppy option. Once it started reading the file it just quit after about 15%. It would only read about 15% of the file then it would just go back to the normal menu. Why? The BIOS is still not updated.

download @BIOS:

its a gigabyte utility that will let you update your BIOS in windows once installed open it and check the 2 boxes 1 says DMI pool and i forget the other. Choose internet update and let it get the latest BIOS for your motherboard, its worked every time for me, just don't run anything else while its doing it .
