Vendor and exact Name of the mainboard/pc/notebook: ASRock X79 Extreme4
System Type (MB=mainboard, PC=personal computer, NB=notebook, BB=barbone): MB
Chipset and Southbridge of the system: X79
Vendor, Sort and Version of the inserted PCI ROM or EFI module: Intel RST v13.5.0.2164 + Intel RSTe 4.1.0.1026 + ASMedia 0.951 + Broadcom PXE 16.8.0/16.8.5 + all microcodes for IB-E and SB-E.
Success: Yes
optional: see this post

The microcode updates add 2 processors (CPUID 6E7 and 6E0, if I remember correct).

PS: Intel MEI update seems to be impossible. Everything says that it wenk good, but in the end, it's the same version as before (8.1.40.XXXX 1.5Mb).
Intel MEI is integrated in the BIOS ROM, but I am afraid that something goes terribly wrong if I change the image there...

PPS: I have updated the ASMedia ROM to v3.80 (supplied by UBU). v0.951 does show a screen with detected drives before booting, v3.80 does not.
However, SATA hotplug is now working withing a couple of seconds with 2TB drives. With v0.93 (ASRock default) I had to reboot for a proper detection.

@ KRyouCK, @ mr_nuub:

Thanks for your reports, which I have already transfered into the BIOS Update Success/Failure table.

I have flashed my HTPC with the newly modded BIOS. Here are the results:

Vendor and exact Name of the mainboard/pc/notebook: ASUS E45M1-I Deluxe
System Type (MB=mainboard, PC=personal computer, NB=notebook, BB=barbone): MB
Chipset and Southbridge of the system: AMD FCH A50M (Hudson M1)
Vendor, Sort and Version of the inserted PCI ROM or EFI module: OROM AMD RAID MISC 4392 3.3.1540.19 + OROM Realtek Boot Agent 2.61
Success: Yes

This mainboard has an AMD E-450 APU soldered to it. It boots a few seconds faster now.
BTW: it only supports IDE and AHCI configuration, but there is no AHCI ROM. There is only a RAID OROM.

BIOS version 0504, default AMD RAID OROM 3.2.

@ mr_nuub:

Thanks for your report, but I will not put it into the "BIOS Modding Success/Failure" table. Due to the missing RAID option of your system you obviously were not able to verify the "success" of the AMD RAID ROM update.

Updated bios motherboard Asus P8H77-M PRO.

The details of the update on the screen shots:





* SLIC v2.1 added certificate

Asus P8H77-M PRO modified - download

** how to flash - see here

Vendor and exact Name of the mainboard/pc/notebook: ASUS M2N-MX
System Type (MB=mainboard, PC=personal computer, NB=notebook, BB=barbone): MB
Chipset and Southbridge of the system: nVidia GeForce 6100/nForce 430 (MCP61)
Vendor, Sort and Version of the inserted PCI ROM or EFI module: nVidia MediaShield 10.0.0.35
Success: Yes

The download page states Award BIOS, but it is an AMI BIOS.
I had to edit the OROM with device ID 10DE:03EF, but MMTool stated 10DE:03F6 (or something else with a 6).
To use a HDD as single drive, you have to set it to stripe and make it bootable in the OROM utility.
Otherwise it would not show up in BIOS.

BTW: The modded drivers v11 loaded in Windows setup (load drivers from removable media).
And the whole driver pack installed without problems.
After installing a nVidia graphics driver, you have to run the raidtool setup again.
Otherwise the nVidia Control Panel would crash everytime you click one of the storage pages.

PS: I used BIOS version 1004 and installed Windows7 32bit.

@ k.bomb81, @ mr_nuub:

Thanks for your reports, which are now put into the "BIOS Modding Success/Failure" table.
Due to the limited space I have only inserted the most important BIOS modding details.

@ scotter77:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum and thanks for your report!

Please let us know, which Option ROM/EFI modules and which version you have inserted and successfully tested or used. Otherwise the "success" message does not really help other users with a Z87 system, who will look into the "BIOS Modding Success/Failure Table" next year (the UBU tool modules are very often updated!).

I'm sorry to tell you, that ASMedia OROM 3.70 does NOT work on my ASRocj X79 Extreme4. I reverted back to 0.9.5.1.

That is no surprise for me.
Only a very few exotic ASMedia SATA3 AHCI Controllers may be able to use any ASMedia ROM from the v2.xx or v3.vxx series.
That is why I do not offer them within the start post of >this< thread.

Thanks for the info. My mistake is already corrected.

#165 RE: BIOS modding success/failure overview by mr_nuub 22.07.2015 09:44

Vendor and exact Name of the mainboard/pc/notebook: Dell Dimension 9200
System Type (MB=mainboard, PC=personal computer, NB=notebook, BB=barbone): PC
Chipset and Southbridge of the system: Intel P965 + ICH8DH
Vendor, Sort and Version of the inserted PCI ROM or EFI module: Intel MSM RAID ROM 8.5.0.1030
Success: Yes
optional: other AHCI and RAID ROMs tested. BIOS freezes after drive detection. There are only IDE and RAID settings in the BIOS. The RAID ROM should be able to hande optical drives as well, but Dell decided to use an AHCI ROM for them and a RAID ROM for the HDDs/SSDs.

Additional information: >here<

EDIT: Please update the ASRock X79 Extreme4 in the success/failure table. ASMedia AHCI 3.80 does not work as I wrote before. I am using 0.951 now.
