Tried on my z77-Ds3h and so far working OK, with corresponding IRST 13.1.0 driver (latest supported). I am not big fan of these mods but this one seems to me reasonably "conservative" and at the level of manufacturers updates available (e.g. IRST - 14.x or 15.x is not supported by intel on z77). Not sure if I keep it or return to standard F11a, however.

UPDATE: Disabled Intel Anti-Theft Technology by following this guide
The attached BIOS is updated.
You should use command fpt -greset after flash to apply changes immediately.

UPDATE: Reset NVRAM volume

Just for information after some time, I have kept the modified version on my system. I have kept the original mod as posted earlier, not the subsequent updates version.

Just for information after some time, I have kept the modified version on my system. I have kept the original mod as posted earlier, not the subsequent updates version.

The previous version was an SPI dump from my PC, it has leftovers inside the ME Region and NVRAM volume.
I managed to clean the ME Region and manually replace the NVRAM volume with stock one.
For some reason the BIOS with stock Flash Descriptor cannot be rebuilt by FITC, I have fixed the problem following this reply from plutomaniac. Afterwards Gigabyte atBIOS utility has trouble flashing my rebuilt BIOS (stucks at Erasing/Writing 0%), while Intel FPT works fine.

Still the original version is stable on my system.

Hi Ferrous,
I flashed your modded BIOS on my Z77-DS3H rev 1.0 but I can't find my Samsung 960 Evo among the drives that could boot. The ssd is mounted using an Asus HYPER M.2 X4 MINI Card M.2 adapter. Can you help me?
Thanks

Have you set OS Type to Windows 8 WHQL?

#11 RE: Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H NVMe Mod by jumpingjackflash5 17.12.2017 06:28
