Notes: This BIOS should be available on Asus Download page on October 12,2011.
=================================================================
Quick Guide on how to go from Bios #0902 to Bios #0706;

- Completely close the Asus AI suite and any security programs (A/V, anti-malware, etc).
- If your overclock isn't 110% stable, reboot and set stock settings in the BIOS.
- Then download Aptio, unzip it, and run "AFUWINx64.exe". It's in /amiflash/aptio/afuwin64.
- Point Aptio to your #0706 rom and hit flash. You shouldn't need to adjust any of the other options available.
- Your computer will appear to freeze/lag and you may see crazy temperature/voltage readings and/or hear corrupted audio coming from the speakers; this is normal.
- When it's done, you can power down and reboot to be running Bios #0706 again.

Confused about what to download? 

- Automatically detect and update your Intel drivers and software with the Intel Driver Update UtilityNot sure this functions properly for our MoBo ?

- Automatically detect and update your Asus drivers and software with the Asus Driver Update Utility. = $29.95  NOT an official Asus Program, Not something I would use, but if you're an idiot and need help.

Beginers Guide to Getting your Newly Built System actually Up and Running ;
- Assemble just the BASIC / Minimal System to TEST that your new MotherBoard will POST / Boot Up, before doing a complete assembly.
(This means just the MoBo, CPU, PSU, and 1 stick of RAM, we just want to see it POST and show AA in the DeBug LED Code, some even do this OutSide of the Case)
- Assemble your complete system, at this time only conecting up 1 SDD/HDD for your BOOT / OS drvie, and leave the Internet disconected for now.
- Turn ON / Boot Up your system, and Enter the BIOS (Delete Key) and make sure you can Boot from Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Rom Drive.
- While in BIOS, make sure you Update the DATE and TIME, otherwise you will get a Windows Activation period expired ERROR Code.
- We ONLY do 100% CLEAN FRESH Installations of WIN 7 (or OS of your choice), DO NOT COPY over OLD OS from another HDD/SSD.
- install the Intel NIC / LAN drivers from Asus Support CD
- Plug in and NOW Connect to the INTERNET & run ALL Windows (OS) updates as needed.
- Review and decide about which BIOS / driver / Apps you want to install from the Asus Support CD, or get the more recent updates off the Asus Support Website
- Review MY >>> DOWNLOADS = Bios, Drivers, Utilities, Manual, QVL <<< section for the MOST UP TO DATE BIOS & DRIVERS LIST and Installation LINKS
- NOTE: IF you'll be using the ONBOARD Sound ... Install the RealTek HD Audio Driver first, and then the SoundBlaster X-Fi Software Emulation Audio Driver.

BIOS / ME / GbE - Upgrade/Downgrade/ReFlashing Utility Tool & Guide, Thanks to CodeRush

CodeRush 's BIOS/ME/GbE - upgrading/downgrading/reflashing Utility tool   thumb.gif

There are three new command files, that make things simple:
upd_all.bat makes BIOS backup, transfers individual board data from backup to supplied BIOS file and updates all BIOS regions including BIOS, ME and GbE.
upd_me.bat updates ME region only.
upd_gbe.bat updates GbE region only.
To use this command files under Windows, you need BIOS file of any version downloaded from your board page under asus.com, unpack it from the archive, rename to bios.bin and copy into FTK/Win32 or FTK/Win64 folder, depending on your Windows version.
Now launch the command file as administrator by clicking right mouse button on them and selecting "Run as Administrator".

Please wait a while, if you see green "FPT Operation Passed" status - it's good. If not - post the error message or screenshot here, I will help to solve the issue.
 
updallok.png
Power the PC off, remove power completelly for about 30 seconds to reset Management Engine and power the PC back on.
Go to BIOS, look at BIOS version and ME version on Main tab. Both mustn't be N/A.
Now you have updated/reflashed/downgraded BIOS.
Flashing with this method can solve numerous problems such as missing Turbo-ratios in BIOS, ME version N/A, NVRAM issues, bugs with OC profiles and many more.
All above has been tested by forums.overclockers.ru community and works only on ASUS P67/Z68/Z77-based boards.
The latest version of all tools you can find here in my Google-translated forum post.
If you have any questions, meanings, results or something - I'm ready to listen it here.
It isn't only a proper way to downgrade, but a proper way to upgrade too.
Our boards doesn't have BIOSes with updated ME and GbE for now on, which Z77-based boards already have.
Funny thing about it, that there are no ASUS utility able to flash ME and GbE from BIOS image to flash chip!
To address that issue, ASUS have just released ME Update Software for Z77-based boards (that is actually only a .NET-GUI to Intel MEUpdate Utility aka FwUpdLcl).
It works and the ability to update ME with ASUS tools is somehow restored.
But GbE update can only be installed with Intel Flash Programming Tool manually or using FTK, that uses Intel FPT internally.

New Build, Can't get System to Post / Boot Up ? , Thanks to Raja@Asus

=================================================================
Having difficulties getting your New Rig up and Running ? ;
- check to be sure your CPU Chip is seated properly.
- check to be sure your memory modules are seated properly.
- memory modules shopuld be 1.5v max (voltage above that CAN potentially cause issues with Sandy-Bridge)
- check to be sure your GPU card is seated properly and/or the PCI-E power cables are securly plugged in TIGHT to the card.
- check to be sure ALL your Sata power Cable connections to HDD, Optical Drive, etc. are secure.
- Double check ALL PSU power connections.
IF ALL ELSE FAILS ...
- Remove the CPU from the socket and clear CMOS (must do with the CPU out)
- Place a single memory module in the slot furthest from the CPU
- Remove all USB devices (Mouse, Drives, etc.) apart from the keyboard also.
- See if the board will at least POST. 
- IF Board will not POST, contact Asus about RMA'ing your Board.

- NOTE:  IF you'll be using the ONBOARD Sound ... Install the RealTek HD Audio Driver first, and then the SoundBlaster X-Fi Software Emulation Audio Driver.

Slow POST / BOOT Times, Thanks to LA_Kings_Fan

=================================================================
The POST/BOOT TIME Issue has been talked about SEVERAL times before ...
- a search back in the thread and some reading might find some answers.
- you can also try some of these SUGGESTIONS from GaryKeys@Asus, thou for P67 boards, they still apply on our Z68 as well
- If during boot up of system, ASUS logo screen pops up twice ... go to the Boot menu under BIOS, manually set Option ROM Messages to "Keep Current".
- If you're experiencing a double POST on your Gene-Z68 motherboard whereupon after powering on the system from a cold boot, the board will power on and then immediately reset itself before it actually POSTs and shows any display on the screen, then To fix the most common additional reset (double POST when powering on from off state), enter UEFI BIOS -> go to ‘Advanced’ tab -> go down to ‘APM’, press Enter -> enable the “Power on by PCIe.” function. Then press F10 to save & exit. After save & exit, let the system boot into Windows or other OS, then perform a proper shutdown: Start button -> Shut down. You will no longer have the double POST.
- Disable any controllers {Jmicron, JMB, Marvell} you're not using, for unused USB ports (example the JMB Storage controller {for the e-Sata} will cause system to double Post)
- check that your SSD firmware is current
- check that your Gene-Z MoBo BIOS is current, version #0902 as of this date
- Make sure BCLK is set to 100
 
In general most of us seem to be getting between 20-30 seconds give or take, before you reach windows.

Debuging Error Code 34, Thanks to LA_Kings_Fan

=================================================================
Debuging Error Code 34, post codes 32-36: CPU post-memory initialization;
- check to be sure your CPU Chip is seated properly.
- check to be sure your memory modules are seated properly.
- memory modules shopuld be 1.5v max (voltage above that CAN potentially cause issues with Sandy-Bridge)
- check to be sure your GPU card is seated properly and/or the PCI-E power cables are securly plugged in TIGHT to the card.
- check to be sure ALL your Sata power Cable connections to HDD, Optical Drive, etc. are secure.

Quick Guide on how to go from Bios #0902 BACKWARDS to Bios #0706, Thanks to MrLinky

=================================================================
Quick Guide on how to go from Bios #0902 to Bios #0706;
- Completely close the Asus AI suite and any security programs (A/V, anti-malware, etc).
- If your overclock isn't 110% stable, reboot and set stock settings in the BIOS.
- Then download Aptio, unzip it, and run "AFUWINx64.exe". It's in /amiflash/aptio/afuwin64.
- Point Aptio to your #0706 rom and hit flash. You shouldn't need to adjust any of the other options available.
- Your computer will appear to freeze/lag and you may see crazy temperature/voltage readings and/or hear corrupted audio coming from the speakers; this is normal.
- When it's done, you can power down and reboot to be running Bios #0706 again.

Quick Guide on how to downgrade BIOS, FULL instructions, Thanks to Tyreal

=================================================================
Quick Instructional Guide on how to do a Bios Downgrade ;
How-To properly downgrade aka force flash your bios after upgrading/inducing failure to the newer "ivy microcode" bios updates.
Symptoms of a bad flash:
  • Check the "Main" tab in bios and look at the "ME" version. (0 or N/A means its buggered)
  • Computer doesnt Post.
  • Erroneous post codes and reboots.
  • Unable to change any bios settings without being greeted by "Overclock Failed... Press F1"
  • AO post code
  • Sluggish system
  • Unusually high Vcore
  • Other random weirdness, instabilities and BSOD's

Ok so I used Linux Mint 12 full 64bit because I had that burnt to dvd already, worked flawlessly and is pretty dang noob friendly, so i'll be giving instructions for Linux Mint 12 full 64bit.
You can grab Linux Mint 12 here.


Burn that to a dvd then boot from it (Press F8 repeatedly while computer is posting which will bring up the Asus boot menu, choose the dvd drive and boot Linux Mint).
note: clear cmos for 20 seconds before booting Linux Mint to flash.
In Linux Mint open terminal. (there is the main menu sort of like the windows start menu tongue.gif its right there, click Terminal icon)
Type sudo apt-get install flashrom (this will download and install Flashrom for you)
Test flashrom to see if it properly detects your chipset (Z68)
Type sudo flashrom (shows deteced platform and help options)
Working? Great! (Might say un-tested platform, this is OK)
Now open up Firefox (main menu like in windows) and grab the appropriate bios for the motherboard, when complete click extract, and extract it to desktop.
Go to destop and rename the downloaded and extraced Bios file to something easy. ex: 0402.rom (right click re-name. Note: when typing to Flashrom in terminal it case sensitive)
Open terminal again and type cd Desktop (case sensitive)
Type sudo flashrom --read backupbios.rom (This will save a backup as backupbios.rom and is a good test if Flashrom can read the image from the flash chip)
Time to flash. smile.gif
Type sudo flashrom --write 0402.rom (this will do a full erase and write of the new bios image to bios chip)
In terminal, hopefully it says successful, you should be good to power down via the upper right menu on the desktop of linux mint, remove cd and restart the computer.
NOTE: If it says failed take note of the message, and DO NOT POWER DOWN SYSTEM OR RESTART.
If failed ask for assistance via Flashrom IRC chat or email them
NOTE: On next power up if the screen greets you with a "Press F1..." (not overclock failed press F1, just the normal Press F1 to configure) the flash was successful, Grats!
Go in and load optimized defaults, also check out the "Main" tab and check ME version, if it shows a string of numbers you flashed successfully and you will now have a fully functional mobo, that doesnt freak when you change ram speed or try to overclock lol
NOTE: Generally when it says press F1 overclock failed, it wasnt successful, and you have to try it again.

Please dont heckle me if you failed to do this successfully, it is the method I personally used when I flashed those damn new double hybrid Ivy bios' IT WORKS
If you dont understand anything ask here or at Flashrom.org thumb.gif

BIOS / ME / GbE - Upgrade/Downgrade/ReFlashing Utility Tool & Guide, Thanks to CodeRush

=================================================================

CodeRush 's BIOS/ME/GbE - upgrading/downgrading/reflashing Utility tool thumb.gif

There are three new command files, that make things simple:
upd_all.bat makes BIOS backup, transfers individual board data from backup to supplied BIOS file and updates all BIOS regions including BIOS, ME and GbE.
upd_me.bat updates ME region only.
upd_gbe.bat updates GbE region only.
To use this command files under Windows, you need BIOS file of any version downloaded from your board page under asus.com, unpack it from the archive, rename to bios.bin and copy into FTK/Win32 or FTK/Win64 folder, depending on your Windows version.
Now launch the command file as administrator by clicking right mouse button on them and selecting "Run as Administrator".
runupdall.png
Please wait a while, if you see green "FPT Operation Passed" status - it's good. If not - post the error message or screenshot here, I will help to solve the issue.
updallok.png
Power the PC off, remove power completelly for about 30 seconds to reset Management Engine and power the PC back on.
Go to BIOS, look at BIOS version and ME version on Main tab. Both mustn't be N/A.
Now you have updated/reflashed/downgraded BIOS.
Flashing with this method can solve numerous problems such as missing Turbo-ratios in BIOS, ME version N/A, NVRAM issues, bugs with OC profiles and many more.
All above has been tested by forums.overclockers.ru community and works only on ASUS P67/Z68/Z77-based boards.
The latest version of all tools you can find here in my Google-translated forum post.
If you have any questions, meanings, results or something - I'm ready to listen it here.
It isn't only a proper way to downgrade, but a proper way to upgrade too.
Our boards doesn't have BIOSes with updated ME and GbE for now on, which Z77-based boards already have.
Funny thing about it, that there are no ASUS utility able to flash ME and GbE from BIOS image to flash chip!
To address that issue, ASUS have just released ME Update Software for Z77-based boards (that is actually only a .NET-GUI to Intel MEUpdate Utility aka FwUpdLcl).
It works and the ability to update ME with ASUS tools is somehow restored.
But GbE update can only be installed with Intel Flash Programming Tool manually or using FTK, that uses Intel FPT internally.

GUIDE: Mac OSX install on your Asus Maximus IV Gene Z, Thanks to jonboyuk

Jonboyuk's MAC OSX installation Guide (Click to show)
Originally Posted by jonboyuk;15461810
Okay some of you might want to boot Lion as your main/secondary OS and I can confirm it's rock solid with this motherboard. Some of these instructions are from my own experiences and others I have pinched from insanelymac. Without further ado, here are the instructions:

To boot MacOS, you need an EFI loader (like iBoot) and a genuine OSX disc - or you can make use of a 'distro' like iAtkos L1. However, the latter is indeed illegal so for obvious reasons I will not be discussing that matter in this forum.

Steps

1. Update your BIOS settings.

Extreme Tweaker

AI Overclock Tuner = Manual
Turbo ratio = By number of active cores mode
For i7 2600K (you'll need to get the correct settings for your CPU):
1-Core Ratio Limit = 38
2-Core Ratio Limit = 37
3-Core Ratio Limit = 36
4-Core Ratio Limit = 35
Internal PLL Overvoltage = Disabled

Advanced\CPU Configuration

CPU Ratio = Auto
CPU C1E=Enabled
C3 Report=Enabled
C6 Report=Enabled
Package C State Limit=No Limit

Advanced\USB Configuration

EHCI Hand-Off=Enabled

2. Burn EFI to disk, so download iBoot as it's one of the newest and has Sandybridge support.

3. Boot your machine and ensure that the optical device is your primary boot, it will load a splash screen for iBoot. Stick your OSX disc in and press F5, and when the OSX install disc appears, move over it and press enter.

4. In theory, OSX install menu should load and you can install OSX. Make sure you format your drive or partition into MacOS Journaled. Install, reboot and boom!

Additional installation notes
  • If at step 4 the install doesn't load properly, go back to step 3, and before you press return to load the menu, enter -x then press return. This is a version of safe mode for MacOS and should help the install to go through.
  • After you've installed it, you will still need the iBootDVD to load the OS. You will need to install Chamelon R2 to the HDD to load it without the CD (do this in MacOS). The easiest option is to use a seperate HDD, but you can partition it if you need.
  • When you've loaded MacOS, it will not have all the drivers you need (or Kexts as they are called in MacOS). Your job is to find them and add them to the system. Most things work out of the box, but things like Sleep, Sound etc need some help.
 
Now, to ensure power management works properly, you need to flash the BIOS which has been tweaked. Use Revoboot as the boot loader with the attached miniSSDT in /Extra/ACPI. Please read the Revoboot thread to find out how to compile this for your system, everyone's will be different according to their CPU/graphics card combo. You'll need to make sure:

You have correct efi-injection for sound to work.

You are using MacMini5,3 as model identifier

Have also attached ethernet kext (64-bit only) and sound kext.

DOWNLOAD from insanelymac

I take no thanks for this BIOS as it was compiled by DGSGA of InsanelyMac and I also take no responsibility for you flashing this - it is completely at your own risk.

As it happens I have Lion running fine and I haven't flashed this BIOS, but I know that power management will not be working 100%. It depends how perfect you want your install to be.

I think that's all - so good luck smile.gif
