I want to update my bios version from f60e to f60 (cause I've found that every bios version with a letter at the end is a beta version), and I'm scared to do it because I know that there's a chance to fail the update. I've searched the internet, and I've found that all GIGABYTE Motherboards have Dual-BIOS technology. After that i searched my motherboard model on gigabyte website and i don't saw any Dual-BIOS feature include. I don't know what to do :(

Motherboard model: GIGABYTE B450M DS3H (v1)

Edit:
Anyway i updated to the latest bios version (F61c), and the process went normally

dont worry about it, flash it to the latest bios (F61c) which got the agesa 1.2.0.2
 
Simply even if they didn't advertise it, Dual bios always indicated by the ammount of bios chips, there is and written as M_Bios and B_Bios. 2 bios chip is present and sitting next each other, Thats, how you indicate a Dual Bios setup on gigabyte mobos.

Another tip:
When watching board specs at Gigabyte page, check the Specification section and look for BIOS entry. First line will be something like (that's from your board)

or (that's my board)

See the difference? Upper quote describes single BIOS board, lower one is from dual BIOS board.
Ok, I got it. Thanks for clarifying me
 
... I'm scared to do it because I know that there's a chance to fail the update....
FWIW...BIOS updating is much less risky today than days of yore since the update utility won't let you update with the wrong BIOS. But to make it safest: do it from the BIOS/UEFI update utility, not from a Windows utility. Also start it only when there are no thunderstorms in the area so you can be confident of no power interruptions in the middle; many people do it only on an UPS.

And finally: if you're getting a brand-new board (or it's still new enough) most mfr's will help you out under warranty if the update goes bad. So you have that for worst-case backup if you need that kind of help.

Ok, I will keep that in mind
