Question Gigabyte Dualbios Corrupt

So my custom build here has a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P FX mobo with some ‘fancy n’ cool’ dualbios setup. Only problem is I am greeted with a blue screen proclaiming “Gigabyte- UEFI DualBIOS” and then a reboot, rinse and repeat. There is no mention of a switch for activating the DualBIOS, and shorting main BIOS pins 1 and 6 brings no avail. I’ve shorted the clear cmos jumpers, and removed the coincell, but I still have this issue. Any advice is appreciated.

For the future generations, I got it.

What I had to do to bypass this bootloop was to use a conductive paper clip and put one end on pin 1, the one with arrow, and pin 6, the pin the was 3 down and 1 over. I then turned on the pc, it told me my main bios was corrupt, and asked if I wanted to boot from secondary. I said yes, installed windows, and now I’m in business. Have a good summer.
