      Why don't you dump the BIOS, change the microcode and flash it?

      Best regards,

    • If there are only Intel and Microsoft SATA AHCI/RAID drivers, you do not use the ASmedia drivers and should be safe.

    • Please tell us if your CPU or RAM is overclocked.

      Your mainboard also has ASmedia SATA controllers.
      What driver and version do you use? Are there any drives connected to those controllers?
      The ports connected to the ASmedia controllers are SATA6G_E5 (lowest of the brown ports, next to the system panel connector)
      and the eSATAp ports on the back of your computer.

      I had bluescreens because of the ASmedia drivers. I updated them to version 3.2 and everything works fine.
      AFAIR I had version which caused the bluescreens, but I could be wrong regarding the buggy version...

      If you are on Win10 then have you tried MS own AHCI drivers? They can have more performance.

      I can't use the MS AHCI drivers, because I use 2x Samsung SSD 840 Pro in RAID 0.

    • You can't use a driver that supports device ID 8086:2822 on a device that has ID 8086:2822.
      There are internal IDs you have to use. You better ask @Fernando how to retrieve them.

      I had very bad issues using driver v14 on my ASRock X79 Extreme4. Version 13 work fine, but the performance is lower.
      v15 will not install (unless modded), but I do not recommend it. I stay on v12.9.4.1000 and I have better performance than v13.

      PS: DPC_WATCHDOG indicates issues during overclocking. Tell us more, please...

      PPS: Damn, I am slow... Should not post during work...

      The reason why ther are no standalone Intel USB 3.0 drivers out there is very simple:
      Intel is a kernel contributor. The drivers are in the Linux kernel. And the kernel is open source.

      Don't say NO just because you don't know it. Inform yourself before talking nonsense.

      PS: it is not possible to port linux drivers to windows. Linux and Windows are totally different solutions to different requierements with different approaches.

    • mr_nuub has written a new post "Fastboot and Hardware Fastboot on NVME chips " 06.07.2017


      Where did you read that?
      I think you mean the "fast startup" feature of Windows 8/8.1/10, is a totally different thing.

      Windows Feature:
      Programs and services are all closed, but the drivers and the kernel are hibernated.
      The next boot is waking kernel and drivers from hibernation and starting all programs and services.

      UEFI Feature:
      Only the necessary hardware is initianlized (SATA/NVMe, RAM, CPU, GPU, sometimes USB and ethernet too),
      so the BIOS time is lower and the OS initializes the rest.
      If you enable this feature, you will not be able to enter the BIOS setup with a simple keypress.
      You have to use a "reboot to UEFI" feature of your OS or an appropriate program that does this.
      Windows 8/10: hold shift and click reboot, then you will find recovery options including reboot to UEFI.

    • mr_nuub has written a new post "Dell Inspiron 7559 M.2 / NVMe Mystery" 05.24.2017

      Dell is known to use whitelists for Wifi/BT (PCIe/USB), so I'm pretty sure they also have a whitelist for PCIe-based SSDs.
      I have seen notebooks with SATA whitelists, too. Really horrible things...

    • mr_nuub has written a new post "[SOLVED] Unable to install the Samsung NVMe driver" 05.22.2017

      Have you tried installing the drivers using their installer?
      Only inf files can be installed through device manager.
      The Samsung exe file is pretty complex, I failed to extract it.
      Just run the exe file and it should install the drivers.

    • mr_nuub has written a new post "Intel 600p SSD - NVMe Drivers Comparison" 05.05.2017

      You are right, the title could be better.
      It's good that there is a new sub-forum for NVMe driver related questions and discussions.

      BTW: I rolled back to the Microsoft driver, because the performance gain is negligible for a small office PC where everything is stored on a network server.
      Boot performance is pretty much the same...

      Can not. We have application software that is licensed to XP. It's a few tens of thousands of dollars. That's why I'm trying to find a way for XP.

      And where is the problem with XP in a virtual machine? It's still XP inside Windows 7/8/10.
      Your "tens of thousands of dollars" worth application software would still run on XP.

      Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #39
      Thanks for your explanations and advices, but I neither have the time nor the interest to correct the code of any SYS file.
      That is the task of the driver development team (here: OpenFabrics).

      As I stated before, you don't have to correct anything. The deveoplers only have to provide the code, there is no must to comple the code.
      It's the spirit of open source to let everyone decide and participate. In the process of compiling code, you can enable certain features,
      enable debug or performance optimizations, optimizing the code for different CPUs and architectures),...
      So there is no binary "that fits all", as the needs greatly differ.
      If you decide to not participate it's perfectly fine, but then don't complain about bad performance or missing features.

      What do you mean with "build the driver from source"? I will never touch the real driver, which is the *.sys file.

      This means, that you should download Visual Studio and other requiered software (like Windows AIK).
      Then download the sources of the driver (Visual Studio Project and countless .h and .c files).
      Then open the VS project and compile it, which should result in one or more .sys files.
      Compiling a piece of software does not requiere code modification, it is just the translation from human readable code to machine executable code.

      Programs and libraries are not directly written in binary format. You know, there are programming languages, like C, C++, C#, Java, Rust, Cobol, Pascal, Swift,...

      Please, for the love of god, stop using this outdated OS!
      Newer hardware is not supported and the OS will not be updated because it is EOL.
      Now install Win7/8/8.1/10 and use XP in a virtual machine like VMware Player, Oracle VirtualBox or Microsoft Hyper-V (Hyper-V lacks 3D support).

    • mr_nuub has written a new post "[HOT] Win10 Update makes nForce RAID arrays unaccessable" 04.14.2017

      nVidia advertised some chipsets with integrated graphics directly with the model number of the graphics core.

      All information taken from wikipedia:
      - nForce 400 / GeForce 6000
      - nForce 600 / GeForce 7000
      - nForce 700 / GeForce 8000

      So the chipset "GeForce 8300" is a MCP78 with GeForce 8300 graphics core.

      Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #403
      I totally agree with you.
      What we currently not know is, whether a clean install of the "Creator's Update" onto an nForce RAID array will work. I just have compared the content of the scsidev.inf files v10.0.14393.0 (v1607) and v10.0.15063 (v1703). Both are dated 06/21/2006 and their content is identical.
      So it seems to me, that problems are foreseeable.

      Fernando, ALL Microsoft drivers are dated 06/21/2006 in case a driver update occures the newer driver of the manufacturer is installed.
      If Microsoft would push their own driver dates, Windows Update and the driver installer routines would always pick the Microsoft drivers in case of a Windows Update/Upgrade and not the manufacturer ones.
      You should compare the SYS and DLL files.

      You could also try to disable power saving features in your BIOS, like PCIe ASPM or CPU C-states.
      Also try adjusting PCIe latency in BIOS. Try different values like 32, 96 or 128. The default should be 64.

    • mr_nuub has written a new post "Intel SATA - unused ports are disabled" 12.19.2016

      I can confirm that the drive is hot-pluggable, but the drive must be connected before the PC is powered on.
      If I remove the drive, the drive letter is freed up and the Intel RST console shows the balloon tip "drive removed".
      If I plug it pack in, the drive is recognized properly and usable again.

      I really don't know why IBM decided to disable the ports during POST.
