      As Magician V5.0 is fully buggy and does not always start on W10 x64 PC I recommend to use the ISO file method to produce a bootable USB Samsung Firmware Update media.
      A specific ISO file is available on Samsung site for each device, one for 960 PRO, one for 960 EVO, etc..
      The USB booted media should be selected in BIOS Menu with CSM enabled exclusively.

      I have installed, may by mistake, MEI driver v11.7.0.1013 to replace v11.7.0.1011 on my PC X99 consumer (MEI firmware size is 1.5 MB).
      All is working correctly.
      Does v11.7.0.1013 drivers for Consumer (1.5MB) and Corporate (5MB) are identical ?

    • @e.v.o, @m1from
      I agree totally with Fernando, I am pretty sure your USB Flash drive(s) is (are) not correctly prepared: USB 2 only, small size (4 GB recommended), never previously used with a multi partionning, never used previously on a MAC (no exFAT), no GPT schema, only pure MBR, FAT32 exclusively fresh fully formatted.
      On my ASUS X99 the flash backing operation is > 6 minutes, never less.
      You should check and prepare the detailed structure of your USB2 keys you are using with tools such as AOMEI Partition Assistant v6.3 Wizard Tool or MiniTool Partition v10.2.1 Tool.
      You also can check the exact structrure after copying your correctly named BIOS file on via Rufus v2.15 Tool (log option).

      With W10 x64 To get successfull SM960 family (PRO and EVO) on ASUS Z77 I have mandatory inserted NvmExpressDxE_2 module into BIOS.
      This is what I have done for my P8Z77-V Deluxe. I assume for ASUS Z77 Sabertooth model it is the same thing. For sure NvmExpressDxE_1 never works with a Z77 platform.

      @Fernando,
      Some other updates:
      Kingston Tool: v1.0.1.8 (02/09/2017)
      Corsair Tool: v1.2.5.5 (03/23/2017)
      SK hynix Easy Kit (SSD Manager) v1.3.2 (04/03/2017) (useful to observe Samsung SM951 AHCI SATA device)

      @Fernando,
      I confirm for P8Z77-V Deluxe the ASMedia USB 3.0/3.1 driver v1.16.45.1 does not work (no USB detection) under W10 64 bits V1703.
      DPinst 64 bits does install the driver without any error.
      Driver v1.16.41.3 (DPinst 64 bit) does work perfectly.

    • @beavis
      Yes, I suggest you should test without Magician installed and active full time.
      However, i am very surprise you succeed to "start" Magician !
      What exact W10 version and build do you have ?
      On my side I succeed to "install", but not to "start" Magician:
      [[File:MAGICIAN_installed_but_not_launching_ERROR.PNG|none|auto]]

    • @beavis,
      At the moment the only way to update 960 PRO firmware to new '2B6QCXP7' version is via Magician v5.0 software.
      Unfortunatly Magician can't start on any of my W10 x64 v1703 PC's. (Magician internal error).
      The Firmware iso file will be proposed very soon.
      Do you have uninstalled Magician after your 960 PRO firmware update ?
      On my side, I wait for iso file method availibility to update 960 PRO firmware.
      On my side, (NVMe driver v2.2) with 960 EVO new firmware (2B7QCXE7) i no longer observe 'unsafe shutdowns' progression, nor W10 x64 'unexpected shutdown', nor 960 EVO disconnected (lost) after a PC Restart required under a WinPE v10.0.15063 application.
      With 960 PRO old firmware I do observe all of these problems.

      @Fernando,
      Post #965 you write "new: 32/64bit DPInst Sets with Intel USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers v5.0.1.38 mod+signed by me at 04/19/2017"

    • 100PIER has written a new post "USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers (original and modded)" 04.19.2017

      @Fernando,
      Last red line typo : v5.0.3.42 for the modded version.
      After the W10 'upgrade' (via "Windows10Upgrade9252" application) from 'RS1' to 'RS2' do we have again to apply Certification ?

    • @Fernando
      I see now v14.8.12.1059 is obsoleted by v14.8.14.1061 WHQL.

    • @Fernando
      I have successfully installed the Software package v15.5.0.1051 WHQL:
      [[File:drivecontrollerinfoX99_Sabertooth.PNG|none|auto]]
      Drivers works fine and are performant.
      However, the problem I got is when launching the Graphic Interface (to check the RAID infos).
      I got this alert (unknown error) and application does crash as reported into W10 Reliability Screen:
      [[File:ERREUR_RST.PNG|none|auto]]
      [[File:ERREUR_RST_and_CRASH.PNG|none|auto]]
      Any idea ? Any potential conflict somewhere ?
