I'm using this BIOS modded by Alpharevx (great work!) and I leave you some recommendations:

Turn on the HPET and let the Windows (10) manage it. Windows 10 no longer uses HPET by default (it uses TSC, Time Stamp Counter). If a program requests HPET instead of TSC, W10 will provide.

Your LAN card MAC adress was reset to 88:88:88:88:87:88. Please use below to fix

Tip: The original MAC address is on a sticker on the MB 24 pin connector.

Thanks Alpharevx for this bios mod ...
and thanks jrmpt for Mac editor ...
As jrmpt, HPET OFF = slow performance, HPET ON = better performance (GTA 5 testing)

Hello

Hello! Sorry to ressurect this old thread but it's the only place on the internet I can find anything about turning OFF HPET on my Z97 PRO GAMER motherboard. (no option in BIOS by default)

I downloaded your modded BIOS Alpharevx, however it's in .ROM format. As far as I know you need .CAP format to be able to flash the Z97 PRO GAMER. So I'm very confused, also why is the modded BIOS named 9901? The latest official BIOS version from ASUS is 2203?

Anyway, can anyone help me? I'd like to try out this BIOS but I need it in .CAP format!

Thanks x

Hi.

Create a Bootable DOS USB Drive: here

Download the BIOS and rename it for example to AsusZ97PROG.rom
Copy that file to the USB pen

Download AFUDOS.EXE here
Copy the file to the USB pen

Inside the pen create a file named update.txt. Open that file and paste:
AFUDOS AsusZ97PROG.rom /GAN
Save, exit. rename the file from update.txt to update.bat

Boot the pc from the pen. run the update.bat
Done

Inside the BIOS, load the optimized defaults and turn the HPET ON. You may want to correct the mac address here

@hancor - thank you for this bios, i will try it as soon as possible.

I see your file is .cap and the file in this topic is .rom, what is the difference, please ?

I think i don't need AFUDOS.EXE to flash it ?

Thank you very much for your help.

Edit : See this

#24 RE: [OFFER] ASUS Z97-PRO GAMER by hancor 04.07.2019 20:05

You now have your choice of .CAP or .ROM extension (attached in previous post above) ; whichever flashing option works for you.

Also did the microcode update to v27 & v20 respectively on the bios in the start post, if you like the snazzy splash screen etc. Enjoy..

As usual make back ups of your drives and existing bios!


Cheers

@hancor

Hi, it's based on the official Asus Bios 2203 and updated with the latest components/microcode? If I flash the CAP, will my MAC address change?

For last, any customizations that we should be aware?


Thanks!

I added the following to the first two bios files in post # 22

NVMe functionality via ------> NVMe mod to run UEFI NVMe SSDs using module NvmExpressDxe_4.ffs dated 04/18/2018 inserted after CSMCORE for this Aptio IV UEFI/BIOS

all based on UEFI/BIOS v2203 from a clean ASUS website download.

The third is microcode update ONLY without the NVMe mod as per the author of the start post.

As usual make back ups of your drives and existing bios!

@hancor

Thank you for your work, it works !

Did you also update Intel Management Interface in your ROM ?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.


Your intel management driver you can find here:

Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) Version 11.7.0.1057 driver (MEI) date: 11/19/2017 Good for Z87 Z97 chipset among others...
https://www.station-drivers.com/index.ph...id=3435&lang=en

Didn't do an update on the Intel Management Interface mainly because the request was for microcode update.

PER: Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools

Users of 9 & 8-series Haswell desktop/mobile systems, meaning ME 9, must use the latest v11.7 drivers instead.

@plutomaniac has all the info you need to those updates should you find the need...

Cheers

#29 RE: [OFFER] ASUS Z97-PRO GAMER by Dams7 06.07.2019 00:45

Thank you for your reply.

In this bios, ME version is 9.1.25.1005.
I see in your link the last one is 9.1.37.1002.

I will try to see how to update this.

Thank you. :)
