Yes, they are separate.

Your BIOS is actually switching to the EFI RAID driver when you disable CSM, the fact that it is 11.5 is not because of downgrading but because that is the version ASUS put in the BIOS, they could just as easily used the 11.6.0.1702 EFI driver, if they did that then you would have one legacy OROM ver 11.6.0.1702 and one EFI Driver (legacy OROM replacement) ver 11.6.0.1702.

Sorry, not sure what you mean here.

Yep, maybe my using RSTe / RST is not a good way to differentiate versions. RSTe in my case meaning versions from 11.5 and upwards (including 3.x) while RST meaning versions 11.2 and downwards (excluding 3.x). 11.5+ is IMO very similar to the real RSTe (3.x drivers). Unfortunately all 11 series are lumped under RST. Any suggestions to better differentiate between the two without being ambiguous by using RSTe and RST would be welcome.

In my case, ASUS has nothing to do with my OROMs because I check what they have updated and then update them myself before I update my BIOS (the latest 1805 BIOS is still full of old OROMs and old ME firmware). ASUS still remain at 11.2 for this on my board.

Now that said, there is something odd and I'm now thinking it's just a reporting problem. I've just modded my BIOS with both ROM versions: 11.0.0.1339 and 11.5.0.1347. Guess what it shows as the ROM version once you disable CSM or force UEFI driver for SATA .. version 11.5.0.1582.

How is that possible unless it's being reported incorrectly. This combined with the RST driver read-me file stating the below (add for those who can't bother reading back, even 11.6.0.1702 shows the above):

RST OROM/UEFI version is 11.6.0.1702

I can't see how there are 2 different ROMs floating around, unless you can show me?

Ouch!, sounds like I hit a sensitive spot there lol.

I guess you only updated with legacy OROM's, not the EFI equivalent. If you're familiar with EFI BIOS then look for GUID 90c8d394-4e04-439c-ba55-2d8cfcb414ed, that should be your EFI RAID driver (11.5.0.1582).

I guess now you'll have one more thing you can update from ASUS lol. wink.gif

Thanks for the above hint, I can find it there and have now spent few hours going through various BIOS files to see if anyone has it updated.

The Z68 don't have it, all of the Z77 boards I checked run this version and while X79 have the updated version, the string is satadriver11 with different GUID (there is a satadriver but that points to the old RSTe still).

I did try and put the satadriver11 into my BIOS, it does boot but complains it's not EFI capable anymore - assume it's because of the string/GUID mismatch/difference. Modding the ROM itself so it appears as satadriver fails due to size mismatch (well.. had to try).

I then tried to troll through the Intel BIOSes using Phoenix tool and found nothing useful from there either!

Thanks for picking up on this, hopefully someone else out there has found it and sees these posts and provides a link - updating is easy enough, finding it is the hard part!

+Rep for you.

Some of the latest Intel BIOS have it, DZ77GA-70K IIRC and some others. Which BIOS are you trying to update, do you have a link?
post #1096 of 3916
I now see that there's even a newer iGPU GOP. The one on my board is 2.0.34.106 while I can find at least 2.0.36.1019 (maybe also .1020). This being totally different from the iGPU vBIOS which I have updated already.

I'm trying to get these EFI versions to the Z77-V board. If you have the know-how to extract from the Intel BIOS I'm happy to check them out and test on my BIOS here. I'm failing to get any ROMs from the Intel boards, the output files don't seem to be included.

Okay, have to go but have rushed a EFI ROM and Sandy Gop to ya, hope they are what you want. I'll try to catch up in a week or so.

What's a GOP? How do you update the vBIOS of the iGPU?

Thanks very much! I've updated the EFI ROM and it works perfectly. Having some kind of an issue with the GOP as the drive/driver remained the same afterwards but I'll spent some more time on it.

Graphics Output Protocol used by EFI.

You can update the iGPU (legacy if that's what it should be called now as it's different from the GOP) using the latest driver release (Intel HD Graphics Driver 15.28.12.2932), they included the ZIP files in there for the firmware/bios update. Then you just use mmtool to update it as normal.

Hmmm ok.

Can you post a summary of which OROM/firmwares are updatable for our boards? Things like ME, LAN OROM/firmware, etc.?
