I flashed the modded bios with flashback. How can I tell if the modded bios is actually flashed?

@Musashi - P8Z77-V PRO - NVME + Microcode updates to latest
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...649565980218267

@bfc_xxx - If USB Flashback functioned normally (ie ran for a minute plus flashing LED, then stopped) BIOS is flashed in

I wans't sure if flashback was working because everything else was the same so I changed the logo with mylogo app and I see it is working.

Hi Lost_N_BIOS

I have P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT with i7-3770K and NVME Intel SSD 750 Series 400GB.
Can i use mod bios in #122 for flash this mainboard. (the latest BIOS v2104.)

Thank you.

@Lost_N_BIOS

Would you be prepared to create a modded BIOs for the Asus P8Z77-M board?

I'd be happy to send a Gift Card your way for your efforts!

Ideally I'd like two versions of this BIOS:
1) . NvME support, all modules update WITH Meltdown / Spectre mitigations
and
2) . NvME support, all modules update WITHOUT Meltdown / Spectre mitigations

Thank you :)

@Lost_N_BIOS
Iíve been using the Asus-P8Z77-V-PRO-2104-NVME-Mod+uCodeUPD Bios you made and it Works Great. Many Thanks.

I was wondering you could please release an updated Ultimate Version of it. Possibly with all the updated module features you did for some variants of the board (like the Deluxe Bios) in earlier posts.

Asus-P8Z77-V-PRO-2104 with Unlocked FD, MSR unlocked, Latest ME FW, EFI GOP / oRom vBIOS, EFI/oRom PXE/LAN All, Intel & ASMedia SATA etc, All uCodes, NVME & the latest Meltdown / Spectre mitigation's.

Thank you for your hard work and maintaining this forum thread. I wish I could make the changes myself, But I canít afford to brick my PC.

@tonz22 - No, I would not use that BIOS, it's a different model, different BIOS, BIOS ID's etc (it probably wouldn't even let you if you tried).
Here is BIOS for P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT w/ NVME + All microcodes updated to latest, flash via USB Flashback only
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...255014088957052

@donaldjboyer - Sure, no problem, shoot me a PM about the gift if you want, and thank you I really appreciate it
Same as below, you need to tell me what versions you want used for Intel RST

Do you want ME FW updated to latest in both, or only in the "With Spectre/Meltdown" microcode version?

@hiska - Thanks for report back, good to hear it's been treating you well
Unlocked FD I can do no problem, and usually do in BIOS anyway, but I don't think flashback writes to the FD so you'd have to program in with programmer or unlock FD first via pinmod then flash FD with FPT.
I just checked, FD is unlocked in the BIOS you mentioned. MSR unlocked?? What does this mean to you, what MSR #?

orom vBIOS and EFI I can do, PXE + ASMedia too + ME FW yes, I can do for you

Intel RST, you need to research threads below and tell me what versions you want used (latest is not an answer here )
Sometimes you may find a matching version for both, other times you can't, it's OK and does not have to match
Intel EFI "RaidDriver" BIOS Modules
AHCI & RAID ROM Modules

You're welcome, and thank you for taking the time to offer your appreciation

#128 RE: [OFFER] ASUS P8Z77-V PRO (and its non-PRO and DELUXE variants) BIOSes modded with all the latest modules by donaldjboyer 05.01.2020 09:59

ME updated in both please. It'd be awesome if you could update all parts of the frimware, logos, NvME etc. Like an "Ultimate" version I guess.

Would appreciate two versions, one with Meltdown and Spectre protection, and one without.

Will PM you now

@donaldjboyer - Thanks, OK, will do! You need to tell me what RST versions you want used though, I can't decide that, it's up to you as the end user.
Links to both threads for those are in above post, in those threads you will find info on which are compatible with your board/chipset, which are suggested, which are latest etc

Logo's?? I don't have any logo images, you'd have to make something or find something you want in there, then I could replace default logo with your image of choice.

I will make one BIOS with NVME mod + Updated ME FW + all updated modules that we decide on, then make a copy of that and update microcode in it and leave the other one with original microcode (This where you get spectre/meltdown protection or not)

Thanks, I found the RST versions a bit confusing, but just leave them as the defaults or whatever you recommend for a Z77 board? How soon do you think you'd have a chance to take a look at this? :)

@donaldjboyer - How about RST >> v13.1.0.2126
You do know, this is only used if you actually use RAID, otherwise never used at all. So, if you don't use RAID we can leave default << Let me know

I can do this right now, and I would have done by now, but I was waiting for you to decide about what RST you wanted The time consuming part, aside from collecting all the needed updates, is updating the vBIOS.
While I do it all by hand manually, I'm used to doing all the other edits quickly as it's just a swap out, but the vBIOS is an actual edit which takes some time, then swap... ME FW too, but not nearly as much

13.1.0.2126 sounds perfect thank you very much!! Yes I do use RAID.

Thank you! Where can I look in bios to check the flash has worked correctly? Is there a version number somewhere I can check?

@donaldjboyer - If USB Flashback proceeded normally (flashing for 1+ minute before stopping), then it worked. You would be able to see the new RAID rom version in the Intel RAID manager, or maybe with the RAID software in windows (not sure)
With either BIOS, you could check ME FW version via HWINFO64 to see if ME FW was updated or not (I'm not sure if USB Flashback always or ever flashes ME FW)
With the microcode updated version, you would be able to see current/in-use microcode with HWINFO64 in the little CPU-z like window that shows up when you first run it.
If you need images of where to see either of those things I mentioned to check in HWFINO64 let me know and I will post you some examples.
