    • Kbird has written a new post "ASUS X99A Problems!" 08.02.2017

      I am seeing something similar on the Asus X99A-II but have not found a remedy for this or my HD's seen as SSD's yet ,

      did you solve this yet ?...

    • Kbird has written a new post "Which are the "best" Intel AHCI/RAID drivers?" 07.17.2017

      Hi , i guess nobody is seeing the other thread so I will ask here about the Best Driver for my Asus X99A-II MB with EFI RAID BIOS module v14.8.0.2397 and Win10.

      Unfortunately nothing has changed for me in regards to the WD 640GB Hard Drives in Raid being seen as SSD's but I recently discovered that the 12.9.4.1000 Drivers crash in Win10 on Long, multi GB File transfers , causing the Computer to Crash.

      Most recently a 106GB transfer caused the crash so I am using the Best Drivers as suggest for the X99 platform, which are RST(e) Driver 14.8.16.1063. This Driver when installed however, also changes the Driver for the Secondary controller to a C200+/C600, which causes the RST Software to lock up and you can't open it off the taskbar or elsewhere. Changing the Secondary Controller back to a Standard AHCI Controller and rebooting, fixed both these issues and the 106GB transferred fine.

      However it appears I am wrong about 14.8.16.1063 , transferring 103 GB from Disk to Disk went ok ...just lucky?
      Tonight I was transferring about 100GB from my old computer (X58A) to the new one (X99) , it lasted about 3-4 mins and the X99 computer crashed again , so now I am getting worried I will damaged the Raid Array.

      Perhaps I will try transferring smaller amount in one operation and see if it helps.....if anyone has any other ideas please let me know , Thanks.

    • Kbird has written a new post "Problems with an Intel X58/ICH10R RAID array" 06.26.2017

      I am using 11.7.4.1001 on my X58A-UD3R system but 12.9.4.1000 is stable too, but since I have an 11.6 series OROM in the Bios, I decided to use the 11.x Driver too.

      I am using 12.9.4.1000 on my X99 system too actually as any driver above 13.x.x.x. makes my Raid 0 arrays look like SSD's when in fact they are WD Black HD's.

      Win10 did not like the 13.x series Drivers provided for the ICH10R when I upgraded to Win10 and since 11.7.4.1001 works in Win 10 I have not changed it again and turned off Driver Updates, so it isn't updated automatically to avoid corruption issues again, using a reg file from Ten Forums

      Thanks Ferrous

      Had I realised at the time what the issue was I may have tried using the Dual Bios myself, the computer would not even boot to the bios after the power surge , so I kept turning it off ...that was wrong thing to do , eventually I just left it running to see what would happen as I thought the MB was dead by then but about 20 mins later I heard the familiar post beep and rushed back into the room to see a message about Dual Boot doing it's thing...It was good to see the MB was not dead but I was unable to access my RAID Disks due to the old 1mb Bios being using to replace the 2mb modded version.

      I ended up using a Win10 WinPe Boot Disk (Kyhi Disk) to run @bios as I needed Windows for that. I couldn't boot to Windows due to the old bios being installed by Dual-Bios, and it not allowing access to my Raid 0 arrays

      On the OROM - I'll look into it. I included a photo in my original post - my ROM is back at v8.9.1002. Is there a good guide to updating?
      Hi Loxlie.... you have an older X58A board like me and for a lot of Gigabyte MB's there is a Page on Tweaktown with Modified Bios's with updated Roms already done for for us, it's how I got mine upto 11.6 on my X58a_UD3R,.... scroll down to about the 4th Post for the X58A boards, just make sure you get the correct revision for your Board.
      https://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/48...ified-bios.html

      Edit ....I forgot to mention you may need to use the windows based @Bios Utility to do the Modified Bios , at least with mine it was the only way to go from a 1mb Bios file to a 2mb Bios file, once it is done once you can then use the Bios Ez-Flash method. I ran into this recently , a power surge corrupted the Bios an after many attempted reboots the Bios finally used the onboard Dual-Bios to repair itself , BUT the Dual bios was an original 1mb Bios so I had to use atbios to upgrade to the newer 2mb file. Apparently there is no way to update the Dual-bios to a newer version , though it maybe possible with a programming clip ? as it is write protected.

      After further testing, the best driver for me is 15.0.4.1048 (06/09/16)
      This is the last driver in the 15 series before it goes to 15.2.

      If I use any of the 15.2 series and up lots of problems, and performance issues are introduced.
      These drivers are great, smooth mouse movement, fast boot speed, and no problems waking from sleep state.
      Highly recommend them. I'm using Intel H110 chipset with Windows 10 x64 Creators Update


      I am trying these Drivers on this recommendation on my Asus X99 MB , it has also just been Upgraded to Creators Edition
      and I noticed the RST software was indicating it was not running after installing v14.8.16.1063 WHQL , which isn't unusual right after booting,
      but yesterday after the computer was on for several hours it was still not running and after trying to open the Software ,
      the Computer became unstable , so I rebooted only to see the Bios Boot screen tell me my Raid Array was "Disabled" and indeed once into Win10
      all my HDs in the Array were gone along with most of my files as my Libraries, desktop etc are not on C:\ since it is a smaller SSD.
      I got the suggested Driver off Station Drivers since I had just seen Sam1-2's post about them and thankfully on the next reboot my Raid Array
      was enabled and accelerated again ....Phew....

      On a side Note I am not sure if it was Creators Edition OR 14.8.16.1063 installation but the secondary AHCI Controller was using a C600+/C200 sSata Driver
      not the Standard AHCI Driver ,my Asus X99 A-II usually uses , so I also switched that back to the Standard AHCI Driver since I am not using an Enterprise
      (RSTe) ORom on this MB , this Board does not have that option , it is using 14.8.0.2377. I am however not sure if that was the cause of the instability,
      and the Raid Array being disabled or the Drivers or Creators Edition is the underlying cause.

      (my Raid 0 Array is still seen as 3 SSD disks with either Driver though, not the (3) 640gb WD Blacks it is comprised of , only drivers below 12.9.4.1000 show them Correctly still )

      Hello! I found this modified version of the P8Z77-V Deluxe since it had many options, which I used as a base to add NVMe support and it has been working like a charm so far (yeah, it's a mod of a mod). However, I can't seem to find the WOL option on the BIOS anywhere and I think the original editor removed it by accident and I can't seem to find a way to add it back in. Does anyone know how you can unlock the function again? It used to be working on the original unmodified BIOS just fine.
      On my Asus MB (X99A-II) in the Bios PCI devices power On must be Enabled , their is no mention of WOL in the Bios but have a look at this thread on Ten Forums for more info on how I set it up...

      Today we upgraded to latest Win10-version, and my new Intel-drivers are all 10.1.1.38 .
      In previous Win10 I could , with Fernandos signed drivers, these files updaten to latest ; 10.1.1.42 , so I tried to update from 10.1.1.38 to 10.1.1.42 ( with Fernando signed), it did not work !
      This new 1703-version of Win10 ( latest) , did not take these newer drivers , I would like to know why not , Fernando.
      Previous version of Win10 is not a problem with drivers signed by you, what can we do............?
      According to Intel there are some issues with 10.1.1.38 , with certain Hardware IDs only , see the post on their Forums here from Jan:

      just an update incase anyone else has this issue and sees this thread....

      I am in Raid so I installed the latest 15.5.0.1051 to see if they helped with my Raid 0 Array HD Disks seen as SSD's , it does not unfortunately , so far only drivers before the 13 Series identify them properly eg 12.9.4.1000 even though the RAID BIOS is v14.8.0.2377

      These installed fine and the RST Software seems to be working correctly

    • @wasisdn:
      I am using version 2 of the same Motherboard as wasisdn and use a Modified Bios from TweakTown with an updated Intel Rom Module with TRIM (version FH Mod.2) , and have no issues with it either .

      Thanks for the info..I got the 11.7.4.1001 Drivers installed.Wonder how I can check for the latest Bios now.The last bios was installed in 2010 ver A11.
      check the motherboard manufacturers website ( it's not an Alienware I assume ) and see if there was anything after A11...... note why it was updated....
      Of course Fernando is correct about AHCI Mode... I am using Raid on all my systems so I try to match the driver to the Raid Bios Module if possible.
