hello, i want to upgrade my P5QD Turbo, is it compatible with this ahci rom? what should i do?
Which AHCI ROM do you mean? An Intel AHCI ROM is only usable with old Intel chipset systems, which are running in AHCI mode.

Zitat
i have already "installed" the "Intel RST RAID ROM v10.1.0.1008" successfully... (and installed latest cpu microcodes but thats totally irrelevant).

Please look into >this< BIOS modding success/failure table for reports about your special mainboard.

i am talking about "installing" the one here AHCI & RAID ROM Modules , because from what i understand, the raid rom and the ahci rom are different.?


yes thats where i looked and decided to "install" (mod the bios with) the "Intel RST RAID ROM v10.1.0.1008".

This was a good decision, because this Intel RAID ROM version seems to be the last one, which will work with your special mainboard.
Nevertheless you should keep in mind, that the Intel RAID ROM will not be used as long as you are running your on-board Intel SATA Controller in AHCI mode.
By the way: Even if you will change the SATA mode to AHCI one day, there is no need to insert an Intel AHCI ROM module into your mainboard BIOS, because your on-board Intel SATA AHCI Controller will not use it.

thanks :p , but you have already welcomed me ;) Intel RST/RSTe Drivers (newest: v15.2.5.1035 WHQL/v5.0.0.2192 Beta) (63)


so if i understand correctly, the only way to use the updated rom i "installed", is to change my mode to "RAID", correct? but then what happens?
right now i am using AHCI mode, i have 1 ssd and 3 hdd. if i change the mode to "RAID" what will happen? will everything work fine? in what mode will my drives work? (i am guessing AHCI?).

will i benefit from using RAID mode? (even though i will not create a RAID array). any chance i will loose Trim?

thank you for your help and time :)

Correct.

You will not be able to boot into your currenly running OS, because your Intel SATA Controller is then running in RAID mode instead of the current AHCI mode.

No. You should better stick to the current AHCI mode.

#982 maximus v extreme raid 0 efi rom to be used for the z77 by Kamiccolo 10.01.2017 02:46

Hi Fernando,

I was going to ask you for some advice on which efi raid rom I should use for my system.

I'm running the Maximus V extreme motherboard with the i7 3770k.

I'm doing a full bios update since I just got my build fully done. 2x 1080s :P but needed some advice for my 2x Samsung 850 pro in raid 0.
I have done the bios updating a lot with UBU tool so that's not the problem just the specific rom I should be using with my z77 chipset.
On the first page of this forum it says that the v13.1.0.2126 rom are originally created for the 8/9 series (not the 7 series) but after that you state that 7 series users should opt for the v13.1.0.2126 rom.
I just wanted to make sure that from your advice that I should be installing the v13.1.0.2126 rom.
My bios origionally has the 11.5.0.1582 efi rom and 11.0.0.1339 orom.

I know I shouldn't be updating the efi rom past a certain version since they do not natively support the 7 series chipset but you kinda state otherwise so just want to make sure.
Once again thank you for your time Fernando! Keep up the amazing work!

I have now read your other thread Which are the "best" Intel AHCI/RAID drivers?.
You do state there that the 13.1.0.2126 are the best for the z77 chipset but let me know what you think as well. Want the system to be operating as best as possible.

Sincerely,
Kamiccolo

Hey, I try to update the option roms in the BIOS of a AsRock 880G Extreme Bios. ( ftp://europe.asrock.com//BIOS/AM3+/880G%...e3(2.10)ROM.zip )
I get from the support a customized rom, but it didn't solve the issue (with activated write cache Windows runs into BSoD in use of a RAID5). The positive side effect is, they had to remove unnecessary parts like the boot logo, dr. lan and AMD EZOC, but also removed Instant Boot, AXTU and other stuff.
so far they have intergrated these Versions: . AHCI: 3.2.1.0, RAID: 3.3.1540.17

It is easy to find the options roms, I was missing the misc.bin. There is also a rom hole at the beginning. And voila, there is the 'MISC.SIG' pattern.
Maybe it is useful for some people.

I just have corrected this misleading statement.
By the way: Only Intel 7-Series Chipset Desktop systems, but not the 7-Series Chipset Mobile ones, are natively fully supported by the Intel RST(e) v13.1 series drivers and OROMs.

This would be a very good option, if you want to boot in UEFI mode.
Note: For LEGACY mode bootings the driver/ROM combination v11.2.0.1006/v11.2.0.1527 would be the best, but requires a fresh OS installation by using a modified ISO file (look >here<) .

Fernando, do you think it is possible to modify the Jmicron option rom to force ahci mode on motherboards that only expose IDE like the Rampage III Extreme and Black?


nvm, i found one provided by jmicron

#986 RE: AHCI & RAID ROM Modules by 100PIER 31.01.2017 10:42

@Fernando,
I come back to RAID0 destruction after BIOS Flashbacking operation I observed with ASUS mboards such as P8Z77-V Deluxe and Sabertooth X99.
In both case I observed the problem with the EFI IRST RAID Bios module v14.8.2.2397.
All different RAID volumes I had are for pure datas only, and do use exclusively SATA 6G Samsung SSDs members (840 PRO, 850 EVO, 850 PRO).
You said you never observed such problem.
What EFI IRST RAID Bios module do you use when you observe no RAID destruction after a flashback operation ?

@100PIER:
It was a mistake to update the Intel RAID BIOS module of a Z77 mainboard to v14.8.2.2397. As you surely know, none of the IRST drivers/modules of the v14 platform do support Intel 7-Series chipsets (they are installable/insertable, but they do not work stable).

Zitat von 100PIER im Beitrag #986

The only mainboard with USB Flashback support I have ever used was my ASUS P8Z77-V. Since the Intel RST RAID driver v11.2.0.1006 is the by far best performing RAID driver, I always used the Intel RAID driver/OROM combo v11.2.0.1006/v11.2.0.1527 with my Z77 system (unfortunately there is no EFI module of the v11.2 series available).
My advice: Use the Intel RST(e) RAID driver/EFI module, which belong to the v13.1 or v13.2 series.

A commenter on http://blog.stuffedcow.net/2012/08/jmicr...card-ahci-mode/ posted them.
https://onedrive.live.com/?id=4F7BE65BF6...F7BE65BF6B6294F

I replaced the jmb363_1.07.28.bin with jmb363_1.07.28_ahci.bin in the 1607_17 ZioMod and now the controller is in AHCI mode once windows starts instead of being stuck in IDE/PATA mode.

#990 RE: AHCI & RAID ROM Modules by 100PIER 31.01.2017 17:45

@Fernando,
Thanks for your comments (#987).
In effect I had some doubt about this version for this Z77 device.
I"ll come back to the v13.1 or v13.2 to keep the EFI feature.

But for X99 BIOS , with EFI module v14.8.2.2397 is it also a mistake which should explain the RAID destruction after a flashback operation ?
