ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 156

post #1551 of 3917
Guys, honestly, is there a real advantage or a good reason for someone to go from the 11.0.0.1339 OROM/11.7.0.1013 RST drivers (both official) to the 12.5.0.1066 OROM/12.0.0.1083 RST drivers combination?

Both combos support raid0 trim, but is there any advantage at all to this transition? I have already posted the numbers if i remember correctly (benchmarks) and i can't see any real benefits. BUT i didn't recreate my raid0 first in both of these cases.

Thanks in advance.

PS: forgot, talking about Z77 mobo

Benchmarks are not the basis on updating to the latest firmware or OROM or drivers.

Look here .

Read it carefully, especially the resolved issues.

Thanks for that, that's for the 12.x IRST driver though.

What about the 12.5 OROM?

EDIT: never mind it;s all in the link:

"2. The RAID OROM & UEFI version for this release is 12.0.0.1783, the driver version is 12.0.0.1082 and user interface version is 12.0.0.1083."


So i guess this would be the safest combination unless somebody know any real advantages of the 12.5 OROM compared to the 12.0 OROM...

Thanks!

@ oldcompgeek:
When you load an F6 driver at the beginning of the OS installation, you should make sure, that it is WHQL certified, suitable (32bit for a 32bit OS, 64bit for a 64bit OS) and from the same branch as the LEGACY/EFI RAID module of the BIOS.

So having a RAID 1 for DATA, after the update I should recreate the Array?

Yeah, from my understanding on the release notes, for example I have OROM v11.6.x.xxxx and I used the IRST driver v12.x.x.xxxx, still it cannot "utilize" the newer features of v12 if I didn't used the same branch.

This is probably a stupid question but I might as well ask it smile.gif If I were to use my system in AHCI mode, will inserting the EFI SataDriver benefit me in any way at all?

ASUS P8Z77-V

Works like a charm. Thank you very much!

Yes, I too am wondering if there is an easy method to redo the RAID array without totally reinstalling Windows. I have a RAID 0 array with two Samsung 830 Series 256GB SSDs and Windows 8 installed, and I'd rather not go through the arduous process of reinstalling Windows again if at all possible.

Also, is there a benefit for updating/installing the EFI SATA Module for a RAID 0 array on a Z77 board?
