ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 109

post #1081 of 3917
Hi danielcascales, UEFI RST drivers have been around for some time and while it should be easy enough to replace I am not sure what effect there will be if using secure boot, do you have some reason to have secure boot enabled?

Did try with RAID EFI RST driver 11.5.0.1582 on my P67 but seems like the tech is still young (buggy) but maybe that is just because of the p67 BIOS, idk.


Would be easier if you provided links to those BIOS you would like checked wink.gif

clarity edit: you're not manually editing them, that version change is what happens when you disable/enable CSM.

Thanks for you answer,
but, it doesn't happen with stock UEFI, for this behaviour, I have to mod the UEFI with 11.6 OpROM? 11.5 UEFI OpROM supports TRIM on RAID 0 SSD?
Many thanks again.

Wow, are you creating/editing RAID under de UEFI instead of Ctrl + I Intel interface?

I want activate Secure Boot for two reasons: Security (no unsigned bootloader can boot), and speed (Ultra Fast Boot instead Fast Boot)
Secure Boot don't generate any special problem, but REQUIRES CSM disable, because with Secure Boot, no Legacy OpROM can boot, only UEFI Drivers.

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/P8Z77-M_PRO/P8Z77-M-PRO-ASUS-1805.zip (P8Z77-M Pro, that is suppossed to have 11.6.0.1702 UEFI RAID Driver)

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/P8Z77-V_PRO/P8Z77-V-PRO-ASUS-1805.zip (P8Z77-V Pro, mine, that only have 11.0.0.xxxx OpROM)

Many thanks again.

Both EFI are 11.5.0.1582, if you want 11.6 i think I have it somewhere or other.
post #1085 of 3917
Both? On P8Z77-V Pro BIOS too? I thought that ony have 11.0.0.xxxx Legacy, I check when arrive home.
The 11.5.0.1582 suppossed to support TRIM on SSD RAID, and it will be OK.
Then, the -M Pro BIOS Update, only have 11.6 Legacy and 11.5 UEFI?

Many thanks for your effort.

I did not bother checking the legacy OROM's. Be aware these BIOS can be a real mess and just having something in there does not mean it is functional. The EFI RAID drivers although 64bit vs OROM 16bit, are similar in that the EFI should be modifiable much the same way as it's legacy cousin to bring trim to 6 series as well.
post #1087 of 3917
OK, many thanks for all that useful information.
When arrive home, in 2 hours, I disable CSM, and try to find the UEFI Intel Rapid Storage Technology item, and try to create and boot from a RAID with HDD, if it works, i'll buy a second SDD, and then, try if TRIM works on RAID (it should work, it's a Z77 board).
I'll post the results.
Ucode, your help has been invaluable.
Many thanks for error-id10t, too. smile.gif

TRIM works just fine on your Z77 board.

Like earlier .. if you have or have inserted the 11.6.0.1702 OROM that's what runs in legacy mode. If you go into BIOS and disable CSM then it will show up as 11.5.0.1582.

Seeing as you're in this thread I assume you're using modded BIOS with the latest OROM - or have at least modded it yourself. I'm not sure why we're talking about EFI ROM this or that.

Above is what happens when you disable CSM.

  • Someone might want the latest 11.6 EFI RAID driver instead of 11.5, which means a BIOS mod might be needed.
  • Someone might want to use the EFI RAID driver on an earlier board than Z77 and want RAID0 trim support, a BIOS mod would be needed.

Really though, you answered the OP's question well enough IMO and maybe had I seen your original answer before posting mine I would not have bothered posting, so sorry about that.

Some advantages of using the BIOS RAID EFI driver over legacy RAID OROM.
  • RAID utility in BIOS setup
  • 64bit code vs 16bit code, faster execution?
  • Secure boot?
  • UltraFast Boot?

Some disadvantages
  • Need GPT
  • Bigger size
  • RSTe OS drivers needed? (RST drivers BSOD?)

Maybe there are advantages/disadvantages to be added/removed, I have not used it that much so can not comment on it very well.

I guess my question/point (that I didn't form correctly) was; is there a separate EFI OROM vs. Legacy OROM floating around anywhere? I've never seen them separated - it's obvious (though odd) that the 11.6.x OROM is not EFI capable seeing as it downgrades itself to 11.5.x automagically as soon as you disable CSM.

11.5.0.1582 is hybrid in that when it came out people could use it in legacy form also, similar to what some GPU vBIOS are, otherwise nobody could disable CSM completely to get the benefits you listed. Both OROMs work just fine with the 11.7 RST drivers.
