      Anyone know if Intel fixed the issue where the disks do not spin down after activity timeout has expires? In all of the 14. drivers I have tried they don't spin down, so I am still at 13.6.3.1001 on windows 10 because of this (maybe that isn't a bad thing for Z87).
      It seems it does ! I think !
      On my laptop
      Was using 12.9.4 to have APM disabled. it is still disabled now.
      It seems only for laptop it fixed not raid drivers
      Thanks, I am trying to spin down a raid set.

      ^^^^ That is also my setup and would be worth a try, the version I have of this tool only contains the 1D. Is there a link to past versions that may contain the 1C? PM would be great.
      No official UEFI BIOS Updater v1.28 BETA 4
      Replaced: - EFI Intel LAN PRO/1000 UNDI to new EFI Intel LAN Gigabit UNDI v0.0.07
      Does anyone have a bit of an explanation as to the lan replacement above? (Lan Intel I217-V)
      As far as I know, there are no links to older versions. I archive older versions for this purpose.

      ^^^ Since knowledge has been deleted to save space, was this directed to my post and if so can you please tell me what mainboard and CPU combo you are referring to, if you modded to upgrade to 1C and if so using what procedure.
      It appears from reading this forum so far nobody really has a good feel for what CPU Microcode is let alone what version would be the best for certain CPU/boards. I believe that ASUS has a blank module that makes it troublesome. I understand that this tools strips modules that are not for the particular set up and hence some are missing after insertion. I like to be an educated guinea pig when it comes to my toy. I enjoy learning and playing with the machine I can however my office IT not so much. If it works don't mess with it .
      Asus Hero VI, 4470k UBU to update the microcode

    • Just a data point. On my Z87 system I updated the UEFI driver and ROM to v14.0.0.2234 and the Windows 7 driver to v14.0.0.1143. I have two Samsung 840 pro in raid0 for the system. I started getting system freezes immediately and both my system and boot drive ended up corrupted and I couldn't boot. I restored the system partition from backup and did a chkdsk on the boot partition and got back up, but in the end, didn't trust it. I had a few day old image backup so it was no big deal. I am pretty sure I was this combo on my hardware that caused the freezing and disk corruption (note I also had write-back enabled) - first time anything like this happened to me.

      I reverted back to UEFI/BIOS driver 14.0.0.2209 and windows driver 13.6.0.1002.

      You misunderstood.

      Installing from a normal boot, the Intel controller installs correctly and I get the same result as your included image. However, the 4k performance is not up to snuff, it is about 1/2 of what I get on windows 7.

      I tried doing the same ll in safe mode, and I get this:

      Here is what I get: Two 128GB 840 Pro in Raid0:

      [[File:asssd-w10.PNG]]

      What I get for Windows 7 is 36 MB/s 4k reads, 112 MB/s 4k writes. The access times are also pretty terrible. Here is windows 7:

      OK. And if I try the install in safe mode I get an error that the OSS isn't supported. It doesn't give an error in normal boot.
      Which Intel chipset has your system?
      All Intel RST drivers since v13.2.x.xxxx natively do only support Intel 8- and 9-Series Chipsets.



      Z87
      Looking at the logs the eerror comes from not finding an inf section ssince the inf are explicitly forkernel 5.x and 6.2 (not 6.4), so it finds no matching OS.

      in any case, running AS-SSD, the 4k random are about 1/2 of what they are in Windows 7. Write-back seems to work, but still way below the windows 7 performance. I'll post comparative results later.

      I have tried to install the 13.5 drivers. While the Intel controller installs properly, the disks still have the Microsoft drivers and no Intel iastorf filter driver.
      If I look at the .inf for the Intel drivers, it explicitly has nt 6.2 for Windows 8 and above.

      The performance I s the low MS performance.

    • Wanted to drop a thanks for giving line to this site, this forum in particular - it has been a great resource for me and wanted to thank you all for your time in providing these BIOS mods!

      No, I installed them from the device manager with update driver (from disk). I used the version posted here that contains only the drivers. Like I said no services were installed.
      Ok, this verifies, that it really was the Intel MEI driver, which prolongated the boot time.
      Please check (right click onto the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface > "Properties" > "Driver" > "Driver Details"), whether the device is using the Intel ME driver named HECI(x64).sys or TEEDriver(x64).sys.


      Just got back from the holiday. I reinstalled the 10.0.30.1054 driver to see what driver it was using and it was the TeeDriver, which was what I thought I remembered. But now the reboot cycle is back to 17s. Go figure.

      Thanks

      How did you install the drivers (manually from within the Device Manager or by running the installer)?
      The Intel MEI Software (Services etc.) will be automaticly installed, if you run the SetupME.exe file.

      This would make some sense if you installed the drivers & software set because this also includes some services and startup processes that can slow down the computer initially. These are mostly useful for 5MB firmware systems which have additional capabilities and can take advantage of such services. You system uses 1.5MB ME firmware so all you really need is just the MEI driver which is manually installable using Device Manager (Have Disk Method). I suggest you download Intel MEI Drivers v10.0.30.1054 WHQL and use the Have Disk Method to manually update the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface device. This won't affect your boot time.

      Here is a data point. I have an Asus Z87 (Hero VI) and have been running IME 9.0.30.1482 firmware and 9.5.15.1730 drivers as supplied by Asus. My full reboot cycle time was 17s.

      I updated to the latest 9.0.31.1487 firmware at this site and the latest 10.x driver. My boot times went into the 30s consistently. So I downgraded to the 9.5.24.1790 drivers from here and my reboot times went back to 17s.

      So this is something I wasn't expecting - boot time strongly dependent on IME driver version.
