    It means you updated with wrong firmware (wrong boot.bin).
    Try to update again with original regional firmware (save to .rgn file with RGN_Tool and flash to nuvi with updater.exe)

    I have the same issue. Flashing the original region firmware and cure firmware did not help.
    Can't delete .gcd that is currently on the system.

    Any suggestion?

    Did you try to make cure firmware as I have described here:

    Yes, I did. Update.exe flashed cured .RGN successfully but still stuck at System Software Missing and try to update itself with bad .GCD

    ddabcd277,

    Thank you very much for your special rgn file.
    I really appreciated your help. The 765T is now working again.

    Now it's time to take down the eBay listing to sell it for parts... :P
