Thing is, i wanted earlier to put NVMe in 3.3 bios...
It says file size exceeds the volume size.
Please attach the pure BIOS file version you want to use.

@Christophy:
Attached is a modded BIOS file, which should work with your system (after having renamed it to "P67P33.30").
You can use it at own risk.

This is what I have done:
1. Opening of the BIOS file named P67P33.30 by using the AMI Aptio IV UEFI MMTool
2. Removal of the BIOS module named "HDAudioDxe" (has been located in Volume 2:01-02 Index 04, uncompressed size: 8KB)
3. Insertion of the pre-compressed file named "NvmExpressDxE_2-compr.ffs"
4. Storage of the modified BIOS file as "P67P33_mod.30"

The problematic part of my work was the decision, which one of the original BIOS modules within the Volume 02:01-02 I can safely remove to get the required space within the BIOS for the insertion of the 16 KB sized pre-compressed NVMe module.
Unfortunately the original BIOS doesn't contain any of the usually dispensable modules (EFI RAID and EFI LAN). So I removed as first try the 3KB sized ASRock Logo module named ASRLOGODXE, hoping, that this would give me enough free space for the insertion of the NVMe module, but it didn't.
Since I do not really know, which one of the Volume 02:01-02 modules (besides the very important CSMCORE one) are absolutely necessary for your special hardware configuration, I decided finally to remove a module, which is definitively not essential for being able to boot into your currentlly running OS.

I am pretty sure, that you will be able to get the attached modded BIOS properly flashed, but I am unsure about the consequences on your on-board HDAudio device. If you should recognize any sound problems, I recommend to ask a BIOS Guru like CodeRush for an advice, which module should be removed from the BIOS instead.

Good luck!

Hi @Fernando

Thank you for all of your hard work on this. I am trying to modify the bios using the 11kb module but it says the file size has been exceeded. I have attached the BIOS. Would you please be so kind as to have a look?

Thank you

P.S. The file extension is .U1E but it opens just fine in MMTool.

@pappy:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

According to CodeRush you can remove any of the various network EFI modules (listed by the MMTool within the Volume 02:01-00 having the Index 91 up to 9A), because they only will be used, if you want to use the "Wake-on-LAN" feature.
I recommend to remove the module named "Ip6Dxe" (Index 98), because it has the biggest size and its removal gives you a lot of free space.

Good luck!

@Fir3DragoN Any luck modding your AMD MB to boot from your 960 EVO? I plan to attempt a similar configuration on my Asus Crosshair V Formula 990FX board. Any feedback would be much appreciated

@Fernando Hi Fernando, new to your forum, but I have been reading your advice for a few weeks. Great stuff, man! Any advice on modding an AMD MB would be much appreciated.

MB: Asus Crosshair V Formula (not z)
CPU: AMD FX8350
GPU: Asus 470 4GB
RAM: 4x4GB G.Skill 2133
SSD: Samsung SM961 (soon, maybe)
Case: Thermaltake Core P3
PSU: be quiet! 650w DPP 11
Cooling: Corsair H80

@AntiBear:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

Although I didn't yet get any feedback from an AMD chipset user, who had tested it, I am pretty sure, that it is possible to get full NVMe support for UEFI capable AMD chipset systems as well.
Since I don't have an AMD chipset mainboard myself, I haven't been able to test it myself.

The procedure should be rather similar to what I have written within the start post.
As soon as it has been verified, that the guide is valid for AMD chipset systems as well, I will rename the title of this thread to "[Guide] How to get full NVMe support for all systems with an AMI UEFI BIOS".

Greetings!
Tell me, for my DQ67SW NVMe can be supported?

Thank you
Sorry for my english

The BIOS of your Intel mainboard with a Q67 Chipset may be suitable for a modification according to the start post of this thread, but due to the specifications of all Intel UEFI BIOSes I doubt, that you will be able to open, to modify and to successfully flash the modified BIOS into the BIOS chip of your Intel mainboard.
I am sorry, but I cannot help you with this.

@Fernando Thank you for the quick response.

I think I will pull the trigger and buy the SM961 256GB. I understand the risk is mine. My configuration will be to use the NVMe as my boot, with an ASUS Hyper card as an adapter to one of my free PCIe slots. I will use a clean install of win10 with no RAID configurations. My PCIe slots are 2.0, but even maxing out the bandwidth will be a significant improvement over SATA. This last point mostly comes down to the fact that I found a really good deal on the NVMe. . .

I will post the results - hopefully good.

@AntiBear:
It is fine, that you are going to buy and to insert an NVMe SSD into your AMD chipset system. This way you will find out, whether and how you can use it as bootable system drive.
As I already told you, I am very optimistic, that you will succeed.

Good luck (fingers crossed)!

That is interesting, but which is the relationship to the topic of this thread?

Answer to Paulos7 in topic 1437:

''Through all this, I considered CSM options, but my motherboard only has "Enabled" and "Disabled". I tried it "Disabled", but quickly discovered my 560Ti can not be flashed with a GOP capable VBIOS (it's pre-600 series). And I don't know if it's possible to "upgrade" CSM modules from a newer series of ASRock motherboard (I doubt it), or if the added CSM options would even be useful in my case''

Windows 7 installation with UEFI mode: CSM Enabled even if Graphics card has Gop Bios

#1470 960 pro shows up at Pata ss? by dngrwill 11.02.2017 23:57

After modifying/flashing an asus z87 bios to boot a 1t 960 pro the drive shows up in bios as "Pata ss" with no size but shows up during the win 10 install as a 960 evo - is this normal?

Thanks
Will

Ps - I was unsuccessful in getting a win 7 clone to boot this drive - just kept looping back to the bios
