I did it, at the beginning it didn't boot because the windows was LEGACY converting it to UEFI and everything started !!! thanks!!

Just finished the tutorial on my quite old Asus P8M75-m-LE mobo and it works fine with my new Adata XPG SX8200 pro NVM.

Thanks for sharing this tutorial!

Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum and thanks for your feedback!
It is fine, that you succeeded and now can enjoy the performance of an NVMe SSD with your old system.
Enjoy it!

Hello i'm very interested in youre guide i have a sabertooth z77 and i have found a modded bios on the forum for nvme support.

I have read a lots of differents things so i'm a little bit confused how to proced, maybe you can give me the good way to do it.

In you guide you use NvmExpressDxe_4.ffs or NvmExpressDxe_Small.ffs for custom the bios.
In the custom rom avaible for my MB there is : Nvme.ffs NVMEINT13.ffs NvmeSmm.ffs

Is there any difference between this? which way should i go ? does it make any differences ?


thanks.

@Legend8575:
Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
It is your decision, which way you want to go.
The NVMe module (as normal or "small sized" variant) we are offering within the start post supports the currently latest NVMe v1.3 specification and is suitable for all systems with an AMI UEFI mainboard.
The 3 modules of the already modded BIOS had been extracted from another mainboard model with full NVMe support. So you can neither be sure whether they are 100% compatible with your specific mainboard model nor whether they support the NVMe v1.3 specification.
By the way: The BIOS modules named NVMEINT13 and NvmeSmm are only usable by mainboards whose system BIOS modules natively do fully support NVMe. Consequence for your mainboard: They need space within the BIOS, but are useless due to the missing interconnection with the system BIOS modules.
Good luck!

So i have done both of it i have extract the 3 ffs from a z97 sabertooth and put them in one original 2104 sabertooth bios and use the NvmeexpressDxe_4 in another one (original 2104 bios) either way this should work.
I will try soon cause my brother will probably gift me a nvme ssd for my birthday :D and i already order a pci to m.2 nvme adapter card.
i'll join you the 2 Bios mod's that i have made.

Thank very much for your quick answer.

@Legend8575:
I have only checked your modded BIOS named Z77NVMEMODNvmexpressDxe_4.cap.
Result: The insertion of the Nvme module has been done correctly, but I recommend to check whether you have really used the original BIOS named SABERTOOTH-Z77-ASUS-2104.CAP as source.
The GUID header code (= first bytes) of your 2 modded BIOSes start with 90 BB EE 14, whereas the original BIOS starts with 8B A6 3C 4A.
Good luck!

#5738 RE: [Guide] How to get full NVMe support for all Systems with an AMI UEFI BIOS by Legend8575 25.05.2020 20:32

i have used this one from the asus website.
checked again and i have done the modification to the bios again but it still as you say the GUID from the asus 2104 is

Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #5737
8B A6 3C 4A
and the bios that is save are
Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #5737
90 BB EE 14,

Did do somthing wrong ? the GUID should not change ?

edit: i think i got this -_- its because i was saving the cap as a new file isnt it ?
edit 2: nop saved as the same file GUID is 90 BB EE 14
Edit 3: >_< is was on MMtool v5.0.0.7 i found mmtool 4.50.0.23 and it doesnt change the guid now you can check with attachment

@Legend8575:
Yes, the GUID should not and will not change, if you do nothing else than the insertion of an additional module.
Even if you give the *.CAP file a new name, the GUID Header code will not be touched.
There must be another reason for the altered code.
I recommend to redo the BIOS modding by using the original BIOS as source. Don't do anything else than the insertion of the NVMe module.

EDIT: Your freshly modded BIOS with the NvmExpressDxe_4.ffs module is identical with the one I got here.

This verifies, that it is sometimes a good idea to follow my guide. Where have I recommended to use the AMI MMTool v5.0.0.7?

@Fernando
you can find my mistake in my edited post above thank you very much =)

EDIT by Fernando: I have seen it and already answered (look into my last post).

I was following your guide but at some point i have dowloaded a pack with multiple tools including MMtool but i didnt check the version then i recheck your guide to find out you are using the 4.50.0.23 so sorry dont hit me please
Again thank you very much for your support
i'll keep you posted when i'll do the change an upgrade for my nvme ssd

Hi,

i have asus p8h61-m lx r2.0 motherboard.
and tried to insert NVME boot support into it using the guide on the fiorst thread post (using UEFI tool) but with not much success.
actually insert the driver was OK but once i tried to flash it - utility said - bad security check and did nothing.

i tried with the latest BIOS from: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/P8H.../HelpDesk_BIOS/ (Version 1204)

can somebody help/guide?

thanks
P.S. i searchd this thread and found asus p8h61-m le motherboard, but it looks like a different one and bios doesnt match.

Hello, really thx u for this insane guide. i must test in my MB. i like this type of "hack".

i post because for moment my test failled :

my plateform : msi z77a-g45
pci m2 adaptater : https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B07H32H...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
M2 SSD : https://www.intenso.de/en/products/solid...h%20Performance

So i read carrefully this guide.
Take my last pure last bios on msi : 7752v2C (E7752IMS.2C0)
open with MMTool 4.50.0.23
find CSMCORE and insert NvmExpressDxe_4 (full version no error message)
save in bios mod repertory.
check the bios mod with MMTool 4.50.0.23 i see correctly NvmExpressDxe_4 in same volume.


so i use Aptio_4_AMI_Firmware_Update_Utility in command prompt under windows
I think flash is correct, i see read / write and verify no error.

after reboot, i make a full restore in bios. I see Nothing :(

I join a movie of my bios if you have an idea : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwagdY6BhJQ

i check in offer bios mod section but didn't see for my MB

In my windows 10, this adapter+m2 is in unkown peripherical...normaly? if windows 10 is installed on another disk, m2 not should be detected like just a storage disk?

I you have an idea?

thank you a lot

I dont think u read it carefully...try again.
U wont see any device until full UEFI boot installation, not CSM ou Legacy+UEFI.
MSI MFlash can be used to flash the mod bios.
But u have a bigger problem, ur INTENSO SSD is SATA not NVMe...
Also the unknown device is not good...cheap adapters or miscommunication in slot used.
