ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 66

Zeraan: It really sounds like one of your SSD's went bad, OCZ is well known for very poor quality NAND, Not sure who makes your other SSD, And if your RAID'ing two different brands of SSD thats never a good idea.

Nope, it was definitely a BIOS issue. I'd recommend taking the download off of your page because it seriously ruined my motherboard. The SSDs work flawlessly prior to and afterwards on a different motherboard. Was definitely running 11.6.0 as well, unfortunately. Anything may have gone wrong but this is just a warning to others out there, this bios can seriously wreck your stuff.

and the "OCZ is unreliable" bandwagon is hilariously silly. Had them for years and nothing has failed on me, work great at insane speeds for stupidly low costs. Their rebates always come back quick and I'm sure their CS would be fine if I ever needed it

You said yourself you still had the problem even with the original ASRock BIOS's and also with different versions. And no my BIOS didnt break your board, even if somehow the RAID OROM didnt get placed right inside the BIOS (unlikely) and you flashed it and it doesnt work all you do is re-flash the original BIOS back into the board and the problem will be fixed. If it still doesnt work after you flashed the original BIOS back into the board then something else is wrong with your hardware. Very possible your board did die but not because of my BIOS.

I have over 10,000+ people that use my BIOS's and your the first one that has reported a problem. I've even had ASRock users themselves that have posted in this thread that have said my BIOS's are working fine for them..

While I appreciate your lack of concern, whatever I ended up with after installing your bios did seriously ruin my board. I swapped every piece of hardware onto the motherboard leaving it the only one not working. It sucks for me because now I have to RMA, but again I suggest confirming the integrity of the z77 extreme4 bios, as there is definitely something wrong with it.

Trim does not erase anything instead it unmaps the LBA that was assigned to a page on the flash. Once that happens any read to that LBA should not be mapped to physical data on the flash so the controller will return some fictitious data such as all zero's or all ones or conceivably something else but not the old data that was previously mapped. Erasure is done at a block level and since a block contains many pages then the firmware will decide when it is beneficial to actually carry out erasures.

Writing all zero's is generally a bad idea except maybe in the case of drives that use compression when trim is not possible. A better way would be to allocate LBA's to a file without actually writing data to them then erasing the file but this still needs the OS trim command or software trim to work with the drivers and SSD.

The Windows trim command is different from the actual trim command that is finally sent to the SSD.

You may find Intel toolbox uses a different command for trim than the windows command so while trim may be possible from the toolbox, the OS trim command can still be rejected.

Yeah updating the Marvell ROM can be tricky, The Marvell ROMs are usually flashed without a BIOS mod.

Try this below and look at the bottom of the page.

It's quite easy, I did it myself in a few steps:

1) Make a bootable USB / other DOS drive.
2) Copy the .exe file and the bios image to it.
3) Boot from it.
4) Load the .exe and follow the instructions smile.gif
