What am I doing wrong?
The problems have been caused by the BIOS and module file names you have used:
  1. The BIOS file name is "E77083.bin" and should not be changed the way you did it with a lot of dots.
    Why did you entered "E77083.12.7.0.1910.ROM"?
  2. The original name I gave the modded Intel RAID ROM with TRIM support for ICH10R (to prevent mixing the files) is too long and has to be renamed to a much shorter name without dots except for the extension, e.g. "INTEL_RAID_ROM.BIN".

Here is the picture I got after having opened the linked BIOS file:

Then I extracted the Intel RAID ROM to look for the version:

As next step I removed the Intel RAID ROM module, which was inside the BIOS:

Then I inserted the Intel RAID ROM, which has been modded by CPL0 (after having renamed it):

Don't worry about the percentage numbers. The modded OROM module has been completely inserted, which is confirmed by the next picture.
As last step I opened the modded BIOS to verify the successful OROM replacement. It now looked like this and should work:


Good luck!
Fernando

I followed your advice and shortened the file names.

That appears to have been the problem.

I flashed the BIOS, and ran trimcheck:

That is really good news - congratulations!
Please post the name and chipset of your mainboard/PC. This may encourage other users with a similar system to insert the TRIM modded Intel RAID ROM into their BIOS.

Hopefully CPL0 aka Dufus is still planning to see if he can fix issue with this modified
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM and motherboards that contain a Marvell controller.

I have both Intel and Marvell controllers, although I have disabled the Marvell in BIOS.

The only issue we've encountered with this modified Intel RST(e) RAID ROM
is that it causes issues with boards with a Marvell controller.

For me, my system won't work at all if I have both the Intel controller
enabled and in RAID mode and the Marvell controller also enabled,
and so I have to keep the Marvell controller disabled in order to be able
to use the Intel controller in RAID mode.

Same here, the computer will not boot with ICH10R as RAID0 and Marvell 9128 enabled.
I had to disable this crappy controller. And lose 2 sata port. Marvell should be sued for building such a lame chip. As well as companies who implemented it on their motherboards ! :)

For me, I much prefer the Intel controller than any other.

It's just a pity you can`t get a Intel PCI Express add on card that includes Intel SATA
III 6Gb/s ports for those of us that have x58 motherboard so we can upgrade to the
newer Intel SATA III ports like the newer motherboards have.

That would be sweet. Intel makes some of the very best NIC cards, etc so I do not see why they do not manufacturer add-on Sata cards, or add-on USB 3.0 cards or a mixture of the two. I wonder if its because that would reduce their sales of Motherboards with this newer technology?

Hi,

Will this work for my Evga x58 classified 3x sli (141-BL-E760) motherboard to enable trim?

Greetings,

There is no guarantee, but I am rather optimistic, that you will get TRIM into your Intel ICH10R RAID0 array, if you replace the original Intel RAID ROM of your mainboard BIOS by the modded one.

I have tried to apply the raid rom to my bios file but it seems that i can't open it in cbrom. The tuturial shows how to open a .bin file, my bios is an .iso, does that matter?

Link to my original bios: ftp://ftp.evga.com/bios/E760_83.iso

Thanks,

Maybe extract the iso first?

Sorry im quite new to all this, just got here because i googled for trim support on my motherboard. Did not read everything yet, will do tommorow :).
