ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 102

post #1011 of 3914
About Splash logo modding on the Asus Z68 Deluxe. I experimented with a number of jpg images of various sizes and had no problem inserting (NOT FLASHING) jpgs from 30kb - 1300kb size. Even with the 1300kb image the rom file was still 8192 kb large but I didn't want to risk going with even a 130 kb file size I saw in another bios for a motherboard from another vendor. Thought there must have been a reason Asus processed they're splash image to 29kb. So I used the AMI ChangeLogo utility and had success updating the splash image though it doesn't stay on for long before the OS loads but cool non the less. Really personalizes your machine. Recommend this as a fun mod others should try!

Garik, I placed the 3602 BIOS I got from you on MMTool, I replaced Realtek OPROM 2.38 with 2.52, along with Marvell 91xx AHCI ROM 1029 to 1033 ( x4 ) and I flashed it with AI Suite II within Windows.

Is there any way to check whether everything has been properly updated?

The Realtek OROM is only for BOOT LAN, you wont see the version unless you use that feature.

As for the Marvell doesnt it have a splash screen that comes up ? If it doesnt go into Device Manager and click properties on the Marvell Controller and on the far right tab pick Details, Then choose Hardware Ids, It should list the OROM version

I've got a silly question. Since there seems to be a problem with Win 8 RAID and TRIM, can I boot Windows 7 from another drive and TRIM the RAID from there? I've got Win 7 installed on another drive anyway for some other testing. I dont see an issue accessing the RAID from another boot. But will it TRIM?

My setup is:
ASUS P8P57 Pro: 3602 BIOS modded by garikfox

Windows 8 booting from 2x Agility 3 240GB in RAID 0

Windows 7 booting from a separate 500GB HDD

If I boot from Windows 7, install the latest RST, will it TRIM my RAID?

note: i've already gone through many of the trouble shooting and verification steps in this forum. Like many others, Win 8 doesnt trim for me.

Thanks!

I dont see a way how Win7 can TRIM it, Win8 is the one with the Optimize Utility

But you don't necessarily need to run the utility for TRIM to work, no? Otherwise how are all the other folks here with Win 7 achieving TRIM on their arrays?

Thanks, yes, that helped, installing v11.6.2.1002 did bring me back the TRIM. thumb.gif

I haven't touched the BIOS.

These driver related differences regarding TRIM support are not easy to understand.
TRIM should either work with all 3 Intel RST(e) driver versions (11.6.0.1030, 11.6.2.1002 and v11.7.0.1013) or with none of them.

Now that I have 11.6.0.1702 raid rom installed I can't get my Windows 7 DVD to install on a freshly created array despite the f6 floppy usb raid drivers. Got a 0x08030001 error before the Windows setup program could take its first step. Had to reinstall an old back up using Acronis. In the future do I need a more recent copy of Windows 7?

Thanks.
