I think Gigabyte already realized that those files aren't supposed to be available for the general public? I still have the files though, I can upload a compressed file if you like?

Try updating the BIOS that came out today. Not sure if that help anything.
It could be that your SATA configuration isn't set up correctly. Make sure AHCI .

What do you mean by the "BIOS that came out today" ? I have the P8Z68-V/GEN3 as well and the updated BIOS version for it is the initial release 0301, right?

What you updated is the BIOS for the P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 and not for my motherboard (P8Z68-V/GEN3). They're not supposed to have the same firmware, right?

My bad, I misread the board model #. doh.gif

They'll have the same BIOS number. Just have to wait until Asus releases it.

Same BIOS number but the files are different and not interchangeable?

Shows how to update the OROM to 11.x, I first updated to 11.0 and afterwards to 11.5 successfully (didn't see the 11.5 there initially!).

Exactly. In the past you could force flash different model numbers, I'm not entirely sure if it were to be possible now considering all of the differences in controllers and I/O each board has. I wouldn't try it.

Thanks, will update the OP. smile.gif

I can't get it to MEI firmware to update. I get this error message in the command prompt: "fwupdlcl.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." Any suggestions?

Edit: Also tried updating the raid rom firmware. Used the bios mod tool and it worked (a few values had diferent sizes compared to what the guide showed though). However, it saves the bios as a P67 bios. Not comfortable loading it.

I don't feel comfortable doing either one, so I'll pass for now. Hopefully ASUS will get on the ball and release updates for us.
