Thank for the modded BIOS. NVME support works but there were several issues that took me hours to figure out and I would like to share the experience to help others. The first is that initially (at least for me) the drive would not show up in the BIOS despite the update. Formatting it in Windows and marking the volume as "active" in disk management had no effect on this behavior. Doing a fresh install of Windows 10 was impossible, it gives a warning that "the system might not support booting from the drive and to enable it in the BIOS" but it still let me continue, when it goes to reboot after copying files from the DVD/flash drive it fails to continue and gives error 0xc000000e, that Windows/system32/winload.exe is missing or contains errors. Startup repair can't fix this error and the drive still didn't show up in the BIOS. After hours, multiple flashes, searching for fixes, and Windows install attempts I found a method that worked. I had to install Windows 10 on a SATA drive and then clone that drive to the NVME SSD, only this resulted in being able to actually see the NVME drive as a boot device and successfully boot from it. After that everything seems good but I wish I had known what I needed to do beforehand, it would have avoided a lot of hassle. If there another easier way to do this then feel free to let me know. Also, for some reason I now have a "PATA SM:" boot option in the BIOS despite the board not having any IDE connections though really, I'm just glad that the drive and adapter I spent $73 on is working.

@madmatt2024 - That is normal, you can't see drive or any evidence of NVME drive until you install OS (win8-10 bootloader onto it)
To install Win10, you need to install from GPT initialized USB to GPT Or RAW disk - follow all steps at #4 here in the "This is what you should do" section - [Guide] How to get full NVMe support for all Systems with an AMI UEFI BIOS

PATA SM = normal, some BIOS show UEFI Bootloader,others something else, all BIOS vary here.

Unknown command or option : /GAN

Hello! Thank you so much for the work done! I want to update the BIOS on my Asus Z87-A rev1.02, but I ran into a problem. When updating using "Asus EZ Flash 2" it gives me the error "Security verification failed." Could you help me with this problem by explaining what I'm doing wrong. I have a CH341A-based programmer to flash SPI EEPROM, maybe you have an image.bin of a modified bios? I will be very grateful! I apologize for my English =)

#22 RE: [OFFER] ASUS Z87-A Bios/UEFI_v2103_complete_mods by Avadon58 19.01.2020 06:42

I solved my problem by converting the image.cap to the image.bin using "ASUS_BIOS_CAP_to_BIN". Maybe my experience will help someone =)

#23 RE: [OFFER] ASUS Z87-A Bios/UEFI_v2103_complete_mods by GennadyK 27.05.2020 22:43

Hi! A have the same problem as @Avadon58 - Asus EZ Flash utility says "Security verification failed" when i tried to update BIOS with new image from the first post.
Can anyone help me?

#24 RE: [OFFER] ASUS Z87-A Bios/UEFI_v2103_complete_mods by hancor 28.05.2020 18:14

@GennadyK

All you have to do is carefully take some time and read post #6 in this thread and follow the links for the procedure to the letter.

Cheers

I tried my self-edited BIOS and yours but i see no change. Do I need something else aswell when in-windows(it doesnt show up in there either) or am I missing something? Its an adata xpg sx8200 pro with an axagon nvme adapter.

#26 RE: [OFFER] ASUS Z87-A Bios/UEFI_v2103_complete_mods by hancor 28.06.2020 01:58

@konrad1374

In the bios try disabling CSM (Compatibility Support Mode) = DISABLED

Unhook all your existing drives and you should see "Windows Boot Manager" in the boot tab of your bios.
This is where you install your new UEFI enabled system via your USB stick.

Also when running in UEFI mode you have to convert all your existing drive from MBR (Master Boot Record) drives to GPT (Gui Partition Table) drives as MBR and GPT drives cannot coexist on the same platform.


You should then experience something like found in post #14.

Cheers
