Zitat von Davin im Beitrag #3BTW, your notes had mentioned that many versions of these driver sets contained known serious problems. Do you have a list anywhere of which versions are problematic and/or what kind of problems they present?
No, I don't have such list, but on the other hand I do not offer download links to drivers, which are generally problematic. By the way: Each system is different and it is impossible to find out for each system, which driver is or may be problematic for it.
Zitat von Hyperion im Beitrag #1684do you think it is possible to install a Win 10 on a Samsung SM961 with an ASUS x4 Adapter Card on a FUJITSU D3161-A1 (SOCKET 0)
I don't know, whether it is possible, but I am pretty sure, that you will not succeed by following the start post of this thread. Reason: According to CodeRush's UEFITool the BIOS of your mainboard is not an UEFI one.
Zitat von Hyperion im Beitrag #1684If not, do you think a Samsung 950 will work as bootable device?
Yes, the Samsung 950 Pro SSD will work, because it has its own Legacy mode NVMe Option ROM module. By the way: According to your attached PDF files the chipset of your mainboard is an Intel Q75 Express one.
Zitat von Davin im Beitrag #1I'm running a two-year-old ASUS X99-A with Intel RST v188.8.131.528 drivers & software (haven't checked the BIOS version yet). I'm using it to run RAID5 on a set of four 2TB WD hard drives. But it seems like whenever I run a "verify and fix" I almost always get a random number (dozens to hundreds) of verification errors (that it says it fixes).
Since I have never created or used a RAID5 array, I am not absolutely sure regarding the reason for this behaviour. The synchronization of the RAID5 data is much more complicated than to do the same with a simple RAID0 or RAID1 array and may take more time. Questions: 1. What is the reason to run so often the "Verify and fix" option of the Intel RAID Software? Have you realized any problems while working? 2. Which is the version of the Intel RAID ROM/EFI "RaidDriver" resp. of the Intel RAID Utility you are using?
ZitatSo, do you think that I've got a real problem and I need to dive into the deep end and figure out my best course of action?
As long as you don't have real problems (instability of the system, degrading of the RAID array or data loss), I don't see any reason to change anything. According to my knowledge the "Verify and fix" option should only be used in case of a real problem and not permanently.
Zitat von aletib im Beitrag #1Any suggestion for me super-expert BIOS-modders? :)
Unfortunately there are not so many "super-expert-BIOS-modders" available, who may be able to help you to solve your special Dell BIOS problem (I certainly do not belong to this group). Nevertheless I hope, that you will get some advices how to proceed.
Zitat von drizzler im Beitrag #1023i have a X58a OC with a Marvel 9182 Sata Controller with a modded Bios. I want to replace the Marvel-Rom with the special one provided in the module section. So i extracted the PCI Rom C with bin 91a2b25.bin that should be the right one (hex look). But the huge difference in filesize is holding me from replacing the rom (131 vs 31) and i am wondering if i am something missing like bootloader, firmware etc. ???
Yes, you probably will have to replace the Marvell Option ROM, the Marvell Bootloader and the Marvell Firmware. Since this is rather complicated and I am not an expert regarding this sort of BIOS modding, I recommend to have a deeper look into >this< special Marvell BIOS modding thread. Hopefully anyone among our Marvell BIOS module Gurus can help you. By the way - I have deleted within the other thread your second post, which had the same content.
@FirstEver: Welcome at Win-RAID Forum, congratulations for your success and thanks for your feedback!
Zitat von FirstEver im Beitrag #1682BTW Samsung NVMe driver v2.1 sucks (Windows 10 Standard NVMe driver is better!)
Yes, who know that. Samsung is obviously working on a better (more stable) NVMe driver without the unexpected shutdown events. Enjoy your Samsung NVMe SSD with your X79 chipset system! Dieter (alias Fernando)
Zitat von epassaro im Beitrag #737I'm trying to run Windows XP on this machine, so i understood i need these modded drivers.
In this case you should better look into the start post of >this< thread. If you want to get Windows XP installed, you will have to use a modded Intel RST driver, but none of the Intel RST drivers v12/13/14/15 will work, because the absolutely requred file named TXTSETUP.OEM is missing. The latest Intel RST driver, which contains the TXTSETUP.OEM file is the v184.108.40.2066 one.
updated: Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v15.5 series for DEV_2822 SATA RAID Controllers (now v220.127.116.1113) The Intel RAID ROM platfom v15 has been designed by Intel for the latest Intel Chipsets from 100-Series up. Thanks to Pacman for the source file.
@epassaro: Welcome at Win-RAID Forum! 1. To find out the matching AHCI driver, I need to know the DeviceID (DEV_XXXX) of your on-board Intel SATA AHCI Controller (Device Manager > "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" > "Properties" > "Details" > "Property" > "HardwareIDs"). 2. If your system has an Intel 100-Series Chipset, you can install any original (not modded) Intel RST driver from the v15 platform. So I don't see any reason why you posted your request into this thread.
@MagneticStuff: Thanks again for your efforts to get this "Pale Moon" display problems for Desktop users solved.
@all "Pale Moon" users: Encouraged by the statements given by our Forum member MagneticStuff, I re-contacted today Ingmar (chief of the Xobor Support Team) regarding the "Pale Moon" display problem for Desktop users. Finally Ingmar promised to solve the problem very soon. Here are the good news for you: 1. According to Ingmar's statement the "Pale Moon" problem for Desktop users will be solved with the next upcoming Xobor Forum Software update. 2. Until the next Forum Software update I have temporarily disabled the "Mobile Template" for this Forum. As a consequence you should now be able to use browsers like "Pale Moon" without any display problems. If the problem should not been fixed, please let me know it.
Enjoy the Forum (whichever browser you may use)! Dieter
