      I think you misunderstood what I meant.

      In RAID mode you can install the driver without modding.
      AHCI mode does not work without modded driver for v15 branch.

      That's the artificial limitation as RAID is very similar to AHCI

      No it's not a misconception as newer branches can provide bug fixes over previous branches.

      Example, v13 branch will surely have some minor bugs that the latest v14 does not as v13 is ancient by now.
      v13 branch has an issue with power link management on some hard drives which latest V14 will fix, this is an example where 'best suited branch recommendation' is not actually the best driver.

      Force installing newer drivers has never caused any performance issues or other problems so for me I'd rather stick with the latest.
      Especially considering X99 isn't even old.

      Thanks for your help.

      System specs are below.
      In AHCI . Raid mode Supports this driver natively, AHCI does not.

      Again as I've said before this is an artificial limitation made by intel for absolutely no reason.
      I've never had issues with modded RST, it's nice to have them because intel fixes minor bugs.
      I don't use them expecting huge performance gains or anything like that.

      I've used modded on ancient 5/6 series chipsets and never had any issues with them either. Nor have i had performance loss but have seen minor gains around 5-10% in AS-SSD

      Many thanks!

      What lets you think, that your system may benefit from this brandnew driver, which natively doesn't support any older Intel chipset up to 9-Series?
      Which chipset has your mainboard and what is the SATA mode of your on-board Intel SATA Controller?
      It is known that intel artificially limits older platforms from newer drivers when there have been little to no changes at a hardware level.
      Example 6 series > 7 series. No change at hardware level yet 7 series would install much newer drivers.

      Regardless, even my old 6 series laptop has seen noticeable gains from installing the latest 15.x series over the 'recommended' v11 branch.
      Updates can provide bug fixes or add better compatibility with new software, example windows 10 creator edition.

      Can you add the latest 15.5 RST?

      Thank you

      @SoniX:
      Any chance you can upgrade the NVMe driver?
      I noticed the body sizes are different comparing X99 to Z270 asus boards.
      Is there any version number to report?

      @PhatAgent:
      Earlier than expected I was able to modify and digitally sign the requested newest Intel RST(e) drivers v15.2.1.1028.
      Thank you.

      But now there is 15.2.2.1030 out. Do you mind? :)

      @ Fernando
      Thanks!

      Better performance and windows welcome screen(logging in) is instant now compared to 14.8.1 modded. That set took a good 10secs to get past the welcome screen loading.
      This is on a MBP 6 series AHCI controller

    • PhatAgent has written a new post "Modded Intel AHCI and RAID Drivers (digitally signed)" 04.04.2016

      Any chance you will add modded 14.8.4/5 to the list?

      Thanks

      @ PhatAgent:

      Apple has a special SKU, what I call 1.5MB_MAC, so you cannot update to anything other than that. The latest in that case, as provided by Apple's latest EFI images, is 7.0.1.1205. It seems that Apple follows their own versioning based on the firmware's date. For example the seemingly newer 7.0.2.1164 firmware has a date of 20/12/2010 compared to Apple's 7.0.1.1205 which has a date of 17/05/2011. So you are not as outdated as you think and unless Apple releases a new 1.5MB_MAC firmware, you cannot update to something newer.
      .


      Gotcha.

      I figured that part of the ME firmware would be what intel provides and the manufacturer adds their custom bits to it, ie you can update the base of the firmware but leave what is specifically modified for the device.

      Thanks for the info

      Hi

      Try updating to v13.1.0.2126 using have disk method and selecting 7 series.

      it fully supports 6 series AHCI controllers since 7 series are the same.

      If that doesn't fix it, try the modded 14.8.1xx here

    • PhatAgent has written a new post "Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools" 04.02.2016

      Reinstalling windows in MBR mode fixed the meinfo and other issues withv7 tools. Many errors under uefi due to the chipset not being UEFI compliant.

      Anyways, i was successfully able to update the ME firmware with your provided download.

      Is it possible to update to 7.1x me, or are systems with 7.0 firmware stuck with 7.0xx

      Thanks!

      @plutomaniac

      Update on MBP.

      I found the issue from those errors, i installed windows 10 in UEFI mode whereas the 2011 MBP does not support it, only EFI. So reinstalled in MBR mode and it fixed the issue.

      Now the FWUPDLCL tells me Error 8706: firmware update not initiated due to integrity failure or invalid FW image. (same under dos)

      Maybe you can use the fw i sent you and update the contents to the latest?

    • PhatAgent has written a new post "Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools" 03.09.2016

      Ive tried twice on 2 separate clean installs on Windows 10 pro. Only some drivers are installed, nothing else has been installed.

      I read that only EFI booting is supported via USB, will try installing a dos bootable onto a CD and give that a shot.

      If that doesn't work, we can try the last option.
