ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 158

post #1571 of 3914
Can anyone insert Fernando's modded 12.5 orom in my bios (it already has the unmodded 11.6 SataDriver). When I try to do it I get a checksum error (Invalid FFS file).
Thanks!

@ feniks:
Which chipset has your mainboard and which EFI Raid SataDriver module are you using resp. where did you get it?

Fernando, I am running Maximus V Extreme board, Z77 chipset, flashed with BIOS 1707 + OROM 12.5 from this thread. raid array was re-created after OROM update.

I am thinking that maybe my Windows EFI installation is the problem, it's not a fresh install, I restored it from backup. That Windows was initially installed in EFI mode but for AHCI controller mode (was running a single SSD back then). I just toggled registry keys to enable iastorv boot and toggled BIOS to that mode, it worked, so I restored that working windows onto raid0 array... I think this can be it.

@Fernando
Gigabyte Z68, and the EFI Raid SataDriver is inside the bios, I didn't add it. It's V11.6.0.1702.
I want to change it with v12.5.0.1815, but the one you modded for Z68 trim.
But I can't do it using Aptio, because of a"Invalid FFS file" error.

I have linked the bios I want to edit in my previous post.

@ feniks:
TRIM should work with your system, if you do not install the v12.5 RST(e) drivers.

@ John-117:
Since garikfox has inserted the original SataDriver into the BIOS, it will not support the TRIM in RAID0 feature for Z68 systems. What you need is the SataDriver, which has been modified by me recently to get the TRIM in RAID feature for your chipset.

@Fernando, I'm surprised myself that it doesn't work now LOL.
I do have an image of fresh win8 EFI RAID0 installation with F6 drivers (did it when troubleshooting something earlier this week). I will restore it and compare if the TRIM works over there.
For sure the SSD RAID0 write speeds looked better in benchmarks on that one than on my current/old one, wondering if TRIM functionality has anything to do with that difference as all the rest was exactly same (minus my documents and installed progs and games). either way, weird.

I have 6 units Z68 systems, 5 units cache mode settings is Write Back and 1 unit had problem like yours regarding TRIM, my solution, TURNING OFF THE CACHE MODE. Please note that this problem only exist on IRST driver earlier than v12. I really don't know why but I think something "breaks" with how v12 coded.

last night tried that already with disabled write-back cache, same thing. it is running IRST 12.0, problem persisted ... wondering if TRIM ever worked on this system when it was running a single SSD for the last year LOL, actually never checked before.
I might go hard way about it tonight, meaning, delete raid0 array, boot to Parted Magic CD and nuke both SSDs to erase them completely, then try again and with a clean win8 EFI install including IRST 12.0 F6x64 drivers... oh boy it will be long night ...

I forgot to tell you the 2 needed settings...

Write-cache buffer flashing: Enabled
Cache mode: Off

You need to verify also, "Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flashing on this device" . You must "unchecked" it.
