ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 125

post #1241 of 3922
In theory at least you don't need to mod because your BIOS comes with satadriver: 11.5.0.1582, so if you install using EFI and force Storage to use the EFI driver then it's set to use that.

However, if you don't do the above then I think (from memory - can't confirm) you do need 11.2 ROM at least and like you said, the legacy ROM for your board is 11.0.x

Some months ago I have used the combination Intel RST RAID ROM v11.0.0.1339 / RST driver v11.2.0.1006 on my Z77 system with an 2x128 GB Crucial M4 RAID0 array and have done the "Easy TRIM Test" by using a hex editor. Result: TRIM was working. So any RAID ROM v11.x.x.xxxx will support TRIM in RAID0 feature, provided it will be used with an RST driver from v11.x.x.xxxx up..
Nevertheless I recommend to use a BIOS with an updated Intel RAID ROM (v11.6.0.1702 or v12.0.0.1783), because these more actual ROM modules are really better than the older ones.
By the way: The PCI ROM modules are within the BIOS, but not developed or made by the mainboard manufacturer. ASUS is doing nothing else than any user, who is going to update the Intel RAID ROM themself. That is no "modding", but simply a replacement of an officially available PCI ROM module by another one.

Anyone test the 12.0.0.xxxx orom for working trim in raid support? I heard that release comes with multiple bug fixes so it would be fantastic news if trim mod still works..

Thanks

TRIM in RAID0 definitively works with the Intel RAID ROM and the EFI "SataDriver" v12.0.0.1783.

What about the non efi rom module? For Z68?

I have already published a modified version of the Intel RAID ROM v12.0.0.1783, which will support P67 and Z68 chipsets. You can download this version from >here<</a>.

Thank you error-id10t, i was not aware of that. I will check it out.

Thank you Fernando 1. I did do a lot of reading this past week about it but there is so much clutter online when you come to forums that it was overwhelming. I do agree with you that an updated ROM module will (or at least should) perform better than the previous one, that is just the way it is meant to be in most cases when a piece of software matures.

That was the second reason I went and checked the Intel website for Z77 mobos bios (specifically the one from the anandtech.com article), I wanted to check the if they were releasing new Bios version with the new oroms for extraction purposes, that's until I came to this forum after further poking around on the interwebs.

If that is all you have done to bios that you have listed then I would have no problem in saving myself a few (or more) minutes doing all that myself. By the amount of users positive responses to this threat I am sure you have done an amazing work. I did not read all of it BUT I did notice as I was scanning for what I was looking for personally how many users have liked this bios and also, I think they mentioned you and another user in anandtech.com. That's enough for me to go on a leap here.

I should get my mobo today, I have not used anythign but EZ Flash in years. I take it USB Flashback is like the long gone method of using a floppy to flash your Bios? Either way I am going to start reading on that and again, ty for all your replies.

I wondered what you meant, so I went to the rog website to download the latest Bios file for my Gene V, the 1604. I noticed when I opened the Zip that it comes with the RST Driver for 11.5. I've only seen that happen when the orom version is updated in the bios file itself to 11.5. Am I mistaken ?

I downloaded my latest bios 1604 and extracted the orom to check it with the hex editor and this is what I got: 'Intel(R) RAID for SATA - v11.2.0.1527.I'

11.2 from an 'official' Bios update doesn't sound horrible, better than 11.0.

I am still not current about EFI OS installations, just heard a little here and there about win8 so I do not think I will head on that route. I am still interested in learning about it. Sounds... interesting.

Thank you Fernando but was wondering what driver are you using with that orom? I heard the 12.0.0.xxxx RST driver is a beta. Is this true? Can you post a dl link please?

Thank you

Also: Are these RST 12.0.0.1083 beta drivers compatible with a C600 controller on a P8Z68 Deluxe (gen 1) ?

Thread Starter 
Its a Production Candidate version, Usually the "PC" versions end up being the same as the Production Versions (PV)

So technically its not a BETA its a Release Candidate version

I've been using it since it came out and has been running fine for me wink.gif

You can download it from this link below, The version is actually 12.0.0.1082
