Zitat von Sleinous im Beitrag #45
Unfortunately even after retrying I couldn't get that method to work on my end

So weird, maybe you have odd MMTool file, or you don't have mod version, or something odd going on?
I can send you the file I test edited that day if you want to see it?

Nice to see success ^^

Thanks DeathBringer!!

@DeathBringer I may try & update CPU Microcode just for practice later on :)
Turbo boost isn't enabled yet on that motherboard (it is just a spare board for testing for now)
Will enable it on my 65w tdp board though when ready :)

@Lost_N_BIOS Wouldn't mind the test file - maybe I can reopen in MMTool & see if it's my version that's no good ? I tried your version though, no dice - I might have just made a mistake somewhere in the add/remove process though

@Sleinous
Do Load Defailts in BIOS, save and reboot.
Make a screenshot of ThrottleStop (main window) with running TS Bench.

@DeathBringer Will do, just waiting on 65w tdp heatsink & cooler for 7060M first - don't have one for my 65w board so can't power it up yet.

Here is the MMTool (.0024 mod version) I used and the edited BIOS I made to test. I did not see any issues, opened your dumped BIOS (FULLDUMP.BIN) and at CPU patch tab add/removed in my normal way (extract all but last uCode, insert my target first ucode, then remove last original, and then insert all the rest I want to insert)
Maybe using 5.02.0025 was the issue? I never tested that, if you want me to try with .0025 let me know and I will see if I find anything funky Actually, I just tested before posting this, also no issues with .0025 version either! So not sure, maybe something you are doing?

@Lost_N_BIOS "(extract all but last uCode, insert my target first ucode, then remove last original, and then insert all the rest I want to insert)"
I think I just realised my error, when I did this I deleted all but FIRST uCode in the list, then I added ALL uCode and THEN deleted FIRST (original) uCode

I think I made a right mess of things !
What i'll do is try this out when I dump the 7060M 65w TDP BIOS (the 2nd board) and will report back - heatsink & fan arrives in about 2 weeks from now.

That shouldn't mess things up either, but I guess maybe it could, and that may be why I've ingrained into my process over the years to make myself do it the way I do?
Nope, just tested that. Delete "second" one, since there is only two, add all four I wanted, then delete first one at top to remove all original, no issues?

I do think now that we're discussing this, in some older BIOS and or maybe just older MMTool, this would happen if not done same way I normally do
Causing wrong dates, file sizes, ucode version info etc, or blank stuff - But none of that here, no matter what I do with 0024 or 0025, no matter how I delete or add etc.

I've made new mod with updated microcode - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Un4F_k...W5gOLwaFhWu7_pI
The command to flash:
fptw64 -a 0x1D20000 -l 0xF0000 -f ucode_2020_04.bin

Will this work for the Optiplex 7060 SFF or is it for the 7060 Micro?

#58 RE: Help adding CPU Microcode to Dell 7060 BIOS? by Sleinous 28.05.2020 12:16

@thewkong Yes, unlike some of the older Optiplex series (3020/9020 for example) this BIOS is common across ALL form factors of 7060. Same bios for Micro/SFF/full size
Older models such as 9020 have different BIOS per form factor 'group' - if memory serves me correctly 9020M had different bios to 9020SFF

For 7060 you can proceed :)
Thanks

Just tried this on my 7060 micro with i9-9900t, it works like a charm, thanks so much.

I got this error when I tried to flash my optiplex 7060 SFF.
