ROM modules (not AHCI/RAID related)



Introduction: This is the place to find any ROM module that is not AHCI/RAID related.

Last update in the list: 2021-04-01

Important: The big majority of the Option ROM modules offered below are designed for a specific Controller model with a certain DeviceID and can only be used unmodified with on-board Controllers, which have exactly the named DeviceID.

Consequence: If your related on-board Ethernet Controller has another DeviceID (can be checked from within the Device Manager), the related Option ROM module has to be customized by:

a) replacing the DeviceID code and
b) correcting the Checksum8

before it can be successfully inserted into the BIOS file.

Good news: Since SoniX has developed and released a special tool named "SetDevID", this procedure can be done automaticly by using this specific command (no need to do it manually with an Hex Editor):

1
 
setdevid <devid> <infile> <outfile>
 


The "SetDevID" tool can be found within UBU in >this< post.

Here are the download links to some actual PCI ROM modules, which have nothing to do with AHCI and RAID:

Asus ROM:



- >ASUSTeK EZ Flash 2 BIOS ROM Utility v4.24<
Notes: Warning: Update only a v4.xx with this module. This is the latest currently available Asus EZ Flash 2 module for an older Legacy Bios. Said simply, EZ Flash 2 is the flasher in a Asus Legacy Bios. No SetDevID required.


Atheros PCI ROM modules:



Atheros AR815x LAN ROM



- >Atheros LAN ROM v2.0.6.6<
Note: This LAN ROM module is dated 05/16/2012 and the latest for the Atheros AR8152 LAN Controller DEV_2060. It will be usable with other Atheros AR815x LAN Controllers after having changed the related hex code entry from "69 19 60 20" to "69 19 xx xx", where xx xx means the 2 vice versa digit pairs of the special on-board DeviceID.

Intel VGA ROM (vBios)



Since the manufacturers of mainboards with an Intel Chipset from 6-Series up put slightly different Intel VGA ROM modules into the mainboard BIOS (look >here<), I do not offer here any VGA ROM modules for Intel iGPUs.
Nevertheless you can build a suitable Intel VGA ROM module yourself. The related guide is >here<.
If you are searching for a special Intel VGA ROM version, you should download the package, which has been linked by SoniX at the end of the start post of >this< thread.

Notes for Intel LAN ROM: Intel has a tons of differrent LAN controllers ID and support on some controllers have been splitted between GE and CL. Also, the difference between XE and XE (550) is another confusing matter to name a few. How to know which one is for your PC? The usual method of simply looking into the original Bios to see what was there and put back the same updated version is not a guarantee of doing the best or even the right thing anymore. So how to do it?

The easiest way i found is to download UBU and go into the /Files/intel/LAN folder and open the .txt files that are there. Each .txt file has a list of all the controllers Device ID that this version (New GE, Old GE, CL, XE or XE (X550)) should be used for. As an exemple: If you can't find your Device ID in the OBAGE.txt file then it was probably switched from GE to the CL line of development by Intel and you should maybe find it in the OBACL.txt instead. This means that even if you had a GE ROM originally, you should replace it with a CL ROM instead. Big credits goes to SoniX for giving us a way that is easier to find out what is needed.

For precisions about the GE split (the way i understand it): Some times ago, there was just the GE branch of development by Intel but, one day, they decided to split it. This happened around the time of the GE v1.5.62. Two things happened:

- Controllers that were too old to develop anymore (or at least more rarely) were taken from the version GE v1.5.62 and were branched out to the new CL line.
- Controllers that Intel could and wanted to continue to develop in the same direction continued to remain in the GE line and are now GE v1.5.62+ (ex.: GE v1.5.89)

Since then and in more recent times, completely new lines of development like the XE line made their appearances.

If i am wrong somewhere, please feel free to correct me.


Notes for Realtek LAN ROM: Realtek seems to have done like Intel did and made new lines of development. Take note that, to my knowledge, contrary to Intel, there was no split in the lines. There was only the development of completely new lines. So no need to knock your head on the wall like you could do with Intel. For example: If your original Bios had a GBE module, you should still need to replace it by an updated GBE modules. Here are the lines known with some examples of LAN controllers in each line of development:


Fast Ethernet (Should not be confused with FE but can also be considered as the PCI branch of FE. This one is the oldest line and is different from FE by using the older PCI (not PCIe) and is able to do 10/100Mbps)
10EC 810X
10EC 8130
10EC 8139

FE (FE for Fast Ethernet. Could be considered as the PCIe branch of FE. Those are older PCIe LAN controllers capable of 10/100Mbps. If your controller is not capable of doing faster than 100Mbps, it is probably in the FE line)
10EC 8136

GBE (GBE for Gigabit Ethernet. Those are newer controllers capable of 10/100/1000Mbps. This means that if your controller is not capable of doing faster than 1000Mbps, it is in the GBE line)
10EC 8167
10EC 8168
10EC 8169

2.5GBE (2.5GBE for 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet. Those are the most recent controllers capable of a top speed of 2.5Gbps. This means that if your controller is capable of doing faster than 1000Mbps, it is probably in the 2.5GBE line)
10EC 8125

Gaming (Gaming seems to be a special line for the Killer controllers)
10EC 2502 (Killer E2500V2)
10EC 2600 (Killer E2600)

Some additional infos can be found by reading the discussion related to post #8.

@SoniX

Ok, now i am puzzled... I see in the ROM a DEV-ID: 2600 which should not exist (should be E0B1 or E0C1 instead). I see a VEN-ID: 10EC which is Realtek. And i see it with the date (08/15/18) which is not old for a ROM. I also see it is v2.66 which is consistent with the latest Realtek version.

Here is my guess and theory: Someone took a Realtek ROM (Maybe Realtek themselves?) and customized it for the Killer E2500V2 / E2600, both being explicitely named in the ROM. Because it is custom made, they renamed the DEV_ID to 2600. Unless it is an upgraded version that was needed for the E2500V2 and it was renamed because it was needed for the V2 and it happens to work also with the E2600 so it was named 2600?

I can understand the need to customize it but i am not sure to see the point of renaming the DEV_ID...

What do you think?

@SoniX

I just noticed that the ROM was made for "Rivet Networks" which is the parent company that owns "Killer Networking" that produce the Killer cards. This is another clue to solve this puzzle...

After thinking about it, i think it was renamed to 2600 because the ROM falls under the vendor Realtek (10EC) and, for some reasons i don't know (probably some shady copyrights), it could not be named under the usual Killer vendor ID 1969 with the usual product ID.

Atheros -> BitFoot-Atheros -> Qualcomm-Atheros -> Rivet -> Who next?? ;))

It is possible that Realtek bought a license or rights to some Killer chips.

If we go to the download Realtek site, we will see the following heading:
Realtek PCIe FE / GBE / 2.5G / Gaming Ethernet Family Controller Software
As we see 4 directions.

  • FE
    - 10EC 8136
  • GbE
    - 10EC 8167
    - 10EC 8168
    - 10EC 8169
  • 2.5G
    10EC 8125
  • Gaming
    - 10EC 2502 ->> (v2, 2500 - v1)
    - 10EC 2600

- 10EC 3000 this ID is not yet clear to 2.5 or Gaming.

Yes, i think we are right. Very interresting to see now more clearly in your list how Realtek seems to be slowly doing a move like Intel did by splitting his LAN lines of drivers and ROM.

I will post your ROM in the first post as soon as i have the time. Thanks for sharing your finding.

#10 RE: [Updated] Actual PCI ROM Modules (Not AHCI/RAID related) by SoniX 28.09.2019 09:44

In general, the list is much wider in terms of Vendor ID from EFI Realtek UNDI.
There may be such an option: 1A56 2502 and 1A56 2600
Also 10EC 3000 can be like 10EC 8125.

Therefore, it will be necessary to observe the Realtek download page.
Since the Rivet Networks site has nothing, only drivers for OS.

Hello,

I have a GA-Z77X-UD3H (rev. 1.0) and I want to use the Atheros AR815x LAN ROM to 2.0.6.6 update.
I looked into the F18 and F20e BIOS images from Gigabyte's website for my revision and it seems I have the AR8151 (v1.0) 1969-1073 --same for the GA-Z77X-UD3H (rev. 1.1)-- but under the Windows 10 device manager I have 1969-1083.
I have read that the modification and update procedure concerns the AR8151 (v2.0) 1969-1083 and not the AR8151 (v1.0) 1969-1073.
[OUTDATED] PCI ROM modules (not AHCI/RAID related) (15)
Also I found some bios mods for my motherboard and people use the 2.0.6.6.
Any idea ? AR8151 (v1.0) 1969-1073 and AR8151 (v2.0) 1969-1083 are the same products with no major differences ?
Have I to change the DeviceID with 1073 or 1083 with the SetDevID tool ?

Thanks for your interest.

@SkyBenoit

Ok, let me explain in details what to do and why.

The hardware ID reported in Windows, or any usual hardware identification software for that matter, is what is set in the LAN module (usually .LOM) in the Bios. It does NOT read it on the LAN chip itself.

Unfortunately, it sometimes happen that some companies just cut corners installing the .LOM and put there not the right hardware ID because the LAN chip on the motherboard is not even that. Sometimes it is because the stocks for the original chip that was supposed to be there is depleted and they put the closest thing instead and forgot to change the ID accordingly. Other times it is just being lazy... Anyway, does it work? Yes, no problems because they choose one that is very close to it and it is compatible. But is it reporting the right thing? Never, because it is not even that piece of hardware that is on the motherboard.

It happened to me once. I had a motherboard that was reporting for years that i had a chip 8086-10CD (Intel 82567LF) but one day i decided to upgrade the .LOM and something didn't add up (i don't even remember what anymore in my case) just like you and i decided to verify directly on the chip and looked at the specs sheet from Intel, then i realised that it was definitely without any doubt instead a 8086-10CE (82567V-2). So i changed the .LOM ID to 10CE and Windows was reporting the right thing.

So my recommendation is this: Find your motherboard user manual on the internet and look at the diagram showing where the LAN chip should be located. Then open your PC and look at the chip yourself. If it is an AR8151 v1.0 it may be written only "AR8151". But if it is an AR8151 v2.0, the "v2.0" part should definitely be there. It may also be possible that Atheros use their own internal piece number system on the chip (like AR8151-BL1A-RL or something like that). In that case, use google to find out it correspond to which one. Then set the dev_ID accordingly in the .LOM.

AR8151 v1.0 = 1969-1073
AR8151 v2.0 = 1969-1083

As for your question about the differences between the two, you will have to find the specs sheet or datasheet or product brief (or whatever Atheros call it) of each one and compare them to find what are thoses.

Hope this help.

It's funny :)) I saw the same OROM version 0.9.04.

We must wait for the official package from Intel, then the version will be clearly understood.

Since the creation of the SetDevID and OROMReplace utilities, I have come across strange things. As a result, what I know does not match what I see.
