    • grml4d has written a new post "NVIDIA: Optimized nForce Driverpacks for Vista/Win7-10" 01.29.2017

      driver packs >Latest 32bit nForce Driverpack for Win7-10 x86 v10.4< works well with latest windows_10_version_1607_updated_jul_2016_x86 iso .
      it also has two others drivers that are not installed : the smu that has no driver with w10 [ named coprocessor with a ? ] and the driver for pci bus in smbus [ that w10 "drives" ]...

      $150 burned.....?
      bios updating is quite dangerous...with boards having a safe reflash : no troubles but with others it is better to ask [ may be not here ? ] the mainboard manufacturer or in its forum...
      i did asked msi france support ...but they are dumbs...so i made a topic at msi forum where they discuss a lot about bios modding overvolting .....but not yet TESTING... i made a topic here that has no reply from bios-gurus....[or free-killers...]..[ those whom give advice are not those who refund mobos-dead..]

    • last thing for modding : a little tool that is able to list the cpuid in a bios file : intelmicrocodelist.exe
      that works with rom or cap bios
      it is at : http://www.delidded.com/how-to-update-cp...r-phoenix-bios/

    • the me firmware that i flashed last year is still in the mainboard x79 despite i reflashed the bios...
      i had this message :
      Error 8772: Invalid usage, -allowsv switch required to update the same version firmware

      i use the updater to check file and bios : same answer

      having the latest microcode means that the cpu will function at best...
      The latest BIOS modules or drivers are not automatically the best, especially not for older systems.


      as a good example you can quote your topic about chipsets and roms for AHCI... but microcodes are not the same piece of software : they are specifics to a cpu serials
      the r4be bios has
      cpu000306E4_platED_ver00000428_date29-05-2014.bin
      mine has
      cpu000306E4_platED_ver00000416_date09-07-2013.bin

      if i look at that page searching cpuid 306E4 :
      http://www.cpu-world.com/cgi-bin/CPUID.p...ilter&STEPPING=

      this is the list for all cpus concerned by the microcode .... i tested my cpu with the vmware driver and in the firmware 416 it already has the infos for my model... but others models not...

      if bios does not have a microcode for a cpu.... then the mainboard does not start at all...so when UBU deletes them ... it KILLS computers...
      having the latest microcode means that the cpu will function at best...
      n.b. : i am not so surprised "the bios gurus" do not post here....


      Why do you think that mainboard will not start without microcode update? Microcode update is completely optional thing, as I understand it.. Wrong BIOS image kills computer. If UBU prepares correct BIOS image then flashing it will not kill anything.

      Edit: I searched the Inet and found that only one case could be for microcode update to be mandatory - when user plugs newer stepping of CPU which is not fully compatible with motherboard (not supported yet).

      Edit: Anyway, have you stated your concerns in UBU thread(s)? There you will receive attention of BIOS gurus sooner.


      if i use ubu microcode update : it delete all microcode of my bios and only add few for xeons , i used ubu on others bios like the mainboard i will get that has a dual cpu : this bios like the r4be , has all microcodes up2date... ubu delete the same as for my x79 : both have same socket ...
      i reported bug in 2016 in page 161 and 162...in the 187 pages topic ... 25 page in a year : that is not so much...
      help modding uefi bios with C602 Chipset lga2011
      and when i re-used UBU these days , i was hoping this killer-bug was removed by bios-gurus... or the option to update microcodes because it kills mainboards that have no usb flashback or dual-bios and also because newbies have few chances to find my post in the page 162... that is why i prefered to ask for help in a separate topic..and now i have a very cool pc..with good ROMS Inside

      here is the monster..waiting hard-drive...

      here are few image of the pc : i play latest D00M and watch Avatar bluray [ with a GTX 570 by VLC] http://postimg.org/gallery/1pfe9z788/
      i can not imagine that in VR 8"] lol

    • grml4d has written a new post "Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools" 01.20.2017

      i used MEA with two bios : the one with chipset x79 reported

      for the tools i use : Intel ME 8 Firmware Repository Pack r14.rar
      and firmware 8.1.65.1586_1.5MB_PRD_RGN.bin

      the second mainboard uses chipset C602

      what tools i use : Intel ME System Tools v7 or v8 ?
      and firmware : 02.04.00.043_PRD_OPR.bin & 02.04.00.043_PRD_REC.bin .

      what exe and command line options i should use ?

    • bios modding is very old , at the time of pentium 2 - 3 it started to be popular ...UBU is very good but from what i know works like softwares from the beginning . the guid system is very good for bios modding and prevents errors in rom choice :] that is the main thing of UBU to have a stock of rom : the good thing of this tool . sadly , for CPU microcodes , they use hand made files [...while there are very good officials "databases" available for free...] , and even when choice is wisely "made by hand" and the bios file created with bios-maker AMI : i mean MMTOOL [ like i tried with the sabertooth ] that can break motherboards...[ there should exist rules for microcodes , one of them being the reason why they are duplicated ] so UBU stays a dangerous tool :] . once again we fallback on the back of those that have to update BIOS...and that are really not "hard worker" ...
      BIOS is the final touch of mobo and increase performances with less wastes of electricity ...
      as "Coder-Rousky" aka Coderush now works to create bios , may be some new tools will come and make UBU error free .
      for easy handling of bios , motherboards designers could switch to a new dual system with the use of SD*C cards for rescue/backup/updated bios .
      these cards are very small , very cheap with very large size [ 30 euros for 64 Go... while bios is only 8 or 16 Mo...] , plus can be wrote on any usb port using a little adapter ...

      for the bios solution of asus bios-usb-flashback , at end of video at this link : http://event.asus.com/2012/mb/USB_BIOS_Flashback_GUIDE/ the guy talks about a security ... [ the main reason why some have trouble is that entering bios is very very very hard when in mode fast..because pc is too fast.. so a lot of user change that option ..and that explains the new reboot option "re-boot to bios" of vmware or latest mainboards..]

    • i found this update when reading some forums...but it is not updated and old....i like the driver from vmware , it is more easy to update it and it says what it does :]
      i used it on two pc : the sabertooth x79 with its microcodes and a hp touchsmart 600-1160 ...both were not needing it ;']
      i am very happy with my new bios ...and i think i found why some have it impossible to start usb bios auto flashing
      : it only works when pc is in quick-boot mode and with an usb key that is not power-hungry
      to load optimized default setting in bios before flashing makes all things right

      for the c602 i think the bios can be unplug ...so i am making my mind if i will ask supermicro to flash the bios in a chipset ...
      as there is no edition of microcode , i want to do it ...
      let us hope that bios updating will become easier soon...

    • in 2016 ...i had already reported the bug i re-found with latest version.... but it passed without being seen [ if you have time to read my previous post talking about my first posts on ubu....
      i would be pleased if you answered my questions .. latest being : how can i replace the microcode files by the one from bios r4be that i have extracted with MCE ?
      i search the solution ....thanks even if you can not give a solution...

    • @Fernando @plutomaniac @SoniX @CodeRush i do a big Call because of bugs i found above
      i had a closer look at files i extrated with MCE , the bios made by supermicro has all microcodes up to date [ i compared with the bios of the evga sr-x ]
      the bios of the r4be either , the sabertooth has the same microcode definition files but all are out-dated

      so my objective is to inject the microcodes of the r4be... i tried with the file selection of UBU but the software freezed.. i also tried with the mmtool of UBU : i deleted all files and added the files in vol 03 04 05 06
      when i saved the file then a mbox saying the info [ of capsule] were lost
      i wonder if i can use it ?
      or i would prefer to make UBU replace files...but instead of selecting a file i would prefer a folder

    • i searched with google about the cpu updates... it showed old first message i posted last year :

      [Discussion] UBU Tool related Questions, Reports and Suggestions (161)


      7 - Update Intel CPU MicroCode SandyBridge-E/IvyBridge-E

      6E3-308, 6E0-008, 6D3-304, 6D2-20C, 6D1-106


      the log shows the same updates and that bios was "bad-flash" so i made one without cpu update that still works ;']

      [Discussion] UBU Tool related Questions, Reports and Suggestions (162)

      google also offered a link :
      https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.ph...VBE-driver-pack

      that topic has "an up to date" BIOS ...
      "Updated BIOS with:
      -CPU MicroCode IvyBridge-E and SandyBridge-E 6E4-428, 6E2-20D, 6D7-710, 6D6-619, 6D5-513"

      so i opened the bios made by ubu on the x79 and the moded r4be , plus opened ubu with that bios :
      here is a picture



      that is clear the r4be has latest microcode ...but UBU does not see them...and offers to update the cpu microcode...

      here is the UBU windows text :

      now it is certain that UBU has a bug with LGA2011 ...

    • so you think that both bios are correct ?
      how can i check the list of cpus supported by these bios ?
      i hope you have plans to create a tool that uses databases from intel and debian ;']

    • today i "played" a little with MCE . thinking it would solve my troubles with the microcode updates...
      but it added some...

      i used MCE with the original bios and the one made by ubu
      for the x79 board MCE_DB_INTEL.txt

      for original bios

      and it extracts : 5 files 66.0 KB (67,584 bytes)


      the microcodes in the x79 and the c602 are having the same names and the same size . both are lga 2011 but the x79 should contain the firmware of the i7 and some of the xeons while the c602 should only have xeons . so the size and numbers of files should be different ...No ?

      i had a look in the folders for the microcodes and found that all others cpu than the lga 2011 have individual files made by a tool like MCE , may be the bugs come from that files ...
      i think @plutomaniac should update its MCE a bit so it would use the Linux databases made to update the cpu firmware after boot
      here are few good links about that , plus a driver from vmware to update the microcode of the cpu under windows
      https://wiki.debian.org/Microcode
      https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/microcode
      with links to these page having "databases" for amd & intel products
      https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?name=intel-ucode
      https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?name=linux-firmware
      here is the intel 's database : https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloa...e-Data-File?v=t

      the driver : https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vmware-cp...er#instructions

      then MCE would be able to get the correct files to update the bios and its microcodes
      [ i do not say UBU does not work correctly , i search to be sure about it ]
