Dual slot == dual BIOS, with a switch to select one or the other.
As for E3 versus E0 - the MSI X570 GODLIKE UEFI fw versions come in major version like follows: 7C34v1E. The 1E is the designation for the major revision, with a following number (1,2,3, etc.) for Beta and 0 for the final release.
Currently, for example, there is a new 7C34v1F1 (Beta version), but the last stable release is 7C34v1E, which, when extracted, has a name E7C34AMS.1E0.
The actual file names are as in my screenshot:
When I sent a message to MSI support, they automatically generated an RMA for the board, but want 15-30 days turnaround, and I don't have a backup system and cannot afford the downtime right now. So, I was hoping that your utility might offer some recourse to allow me to get both 'BIOS' working correctly.
The worst part is that I used the latest MSI Center 1.0.24 to download and apply the E7C34AMS.1E0 fw update over E7C34AMS.1E3, which rebooted the machine and ran the M-Flash utility as it is supposed to - but it froze for well over 3 hours, as mentioned, and I had no recourse but to reboot (I had some really bad thunderstorms moving into the area and I decided to take my chances with the UEFI fw update being incomplete versus leaving my computer on during the storms).
I hope that helps explain what I mean. If I need to provide more info, please let me know and I will.
