FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT NEED UPDATE INTEL MANAGEMENT ENGINE.
Accordingly, there is no need to flash the ME region.
You do not have a bios bug.
And you just want to flash the BIOS with NVME and updated processor microcodes.


Throughout the 6th series, asus in EZ Flash has no write protection for modified .rom
You can simply flash these modified BIOS directly from EZ Flash, like the original


But if the items for overclocking settings are missing or half of the RAM is not used, then ME region flashing with FTK will help you. (Click)

I will repeat what CodeRush has already said:

Zitat
You make anything described below on your own risk, there is no perfect bug-free software and flashing the BIOS is dangerous. Be prepared and don't blame me, if anything goes wrong.
In addition: using this flashing methods and modifying your motherboard data is not supported by ASUS in any way and it could void your warranty, if spotted.
Please use normal ASUS solutions like EZ Flash or USB BIOS Flashback for performing updates of fully-functional BIOS.

Also, forgive me for my English, I partially use Google Translator, but I check the reverse translation.

"nvme" - "NvmExpressDxe_4" module (bigger sized, but completely optimized for the purpose of this thread)
"nvmesmall" - "NvmExpressDxe_Small" module (much smaller sized, but with full functionality)
"mod_" - microcode updated, if not, then they did not fit :с

Zitat
Both sorts of NVMe modules have been compiled and optimized by our Forum member Ethaniel on the basis of the currently latest source code UDK2018, which had been built by the EDK2/Clover Team for rather different purposes regarding the NVMe usage.
The file named "NvmExpress_Small.ffs" contains just the required code to support booting off an NVMe SSD and should be taken, if there is not enough space available within the BIOS (resp. its DXE Driver Volume) for the insertion of the bigger sized "NvmExpressDxe_4" module.
Both NVMe modules have been successfully tested.


And if your board is not in the list, then even a small one did not fit into it ...

Are these safe to use?

I updated the MC(updated all CPUID) in my Z68-VGEN3 via UBU and it has bricked my board.
Apparently it changes the offsets which causes a no boot situation.

I guess it's only safe to update 1 MC and remove the rest via UBU.

Did you clear the CMOS with the jumper? Mine appeared to brick but clearing the CMOS brought it back. Still won't boot to NVMe though...

#4 RE: [OFFER] 21 Modified BIOS for all Asus motherboards with Z68 and P67 (NVME, updated microcodes) by fenderjaguar 28.09.2020 20:30

I have bravely updated my motherboards BIOS with this (P8P67-M Pro).

Can confirm it works, I mean it didn't brick the board or anything. Everything in the bios looks normal. I don't have a PCIe nvme drive (not sure if I'll ever get one). Just for the microcode (I'm assuming that means it's for spectre and meltdown etc?)

to be honest, I just did it for the hell of it, and I like that "hope it don't brick" excitement kick. nothing like it, when updating a GPU or motherboard bios

#5 RE: [OFFER] 21 Modified BIOS for all Asus motherboards with Z68 and P67 (NVME, updated microcodes) by fenderjaguar 08.10.2020 19:06

ok, so I decided to buy an NVME m.2 SSD and a PCI-e adaptor. I can honestly say it all works perfectly. Booting from this drive now, no problems:

Thanks, SKyRo, great bios :)

No P8P67 LE, did the driver not fit?

Hello,
I need Nvme Modded ROM for Asus P8P67 LE (Bios officiel 38.01), When I going to Patch it's said error 'file size exceed the volume size). Please can someone provide modified Rom for this Motherboard.

Thank you very much.

i confirm P8Z68 DELUXE working fine with this mod. Boot normally Win10x64 from a WD Black 1TB SN750 NVME on a PCI-E card.

Just be careful with the installation media, it must be Uefi on GPT otherwise it refuses to install to the NVME disk.

#9 RE: [OFFER] 21 Modified BIOS for all Asus motherboards with Z68 and P67 (NVME, updated microcodes) by mastermind 23.12.2020 08:33

P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 flashed and POST fine. Overclock settings and 4 ram DIMMs still showing. Before and after BIOS 3603 x64 (11/09/2012) & ME 8.0.2.1410

Update: Tested Crucial P1 1TB in ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 V2 card (slot #1 of 4). Installed in middle (white) PCIE slot and bottom (dark grey) slot and in either slot the motherboard detects "PATA: SS" drive. Then did UEFI Windows 10 2004 x64 usb install and installer detected drive and installed fine. Boots Win 10 fine from nvme. Installed Crucial Storage Executive Tool which detected the Crucial P1 nvme drive no problem.

Note to anyone else using this "/GEN3"board: The bottom (dark grey) PCIe physical x16 slot really only functions as a PCIe 2.0 @ x4 slot. If you use the middle (white) slot it will make the top (blue) physical x16 slot and middle (white) physical x16 slot both run PCIe 3.0 @ x8. With my Crucial P1 installed in bottom (dark grey) slot it runs PCIe 2.0 @ x4 and showed over 1600MB/sec read and over 1400MB/sec write (SEQ1M Q8T1) which I am happy with and feel is best option to leave full PCIe 3.0 x16 for discreet GPU and allow that GPU more space for cooling.

Thanks to SKyRo and those who helped created this excellent bios.

Z68: 8 - Gives integrity error :(

Board:
P8P67-M Pro
Already flashed. Is it important at which PCIe port the ssd is plugged in? After installing Windows 10 and reboot there is just a blackscreen with a blinking curser. Its plugged in in a x16 Adapter in the upper slot.

Upgraded my P8Z68-V LX to boot from a NVMe successfully - I can provide a step by step guide if there's any demand.

Thanks to SKyRo for the mod.

Hi,

I'll gladly appriciate such a guide. I've downloaded the bios but not 100% sure what I should do with it. Looking forward to boot a MVNE SSD. :)

Hello kkloath, can you help me? I have the Asus p8z68 Deluxe, too.
You wrote you installed the modded bios.
So i tried it view times but it don't work right.
I tried it at least simply with the firmware option in the original bios.
Now, the nvme will start but everytime i have shut down the pc complete and start the boot partiton with the F8 boot manager.
On reebooting the nvme will not found because the pc dosn't shut down complete.

Can you help me with a detailed instruction and the tools you used?

OK, I've been working on a comprehensive step by step guide for my P8Z 68-V LX board and I should have it up by the weekend.
