Where-ever you have this file: FWUpdLcl64.exe. This is also where you want the .BIN file to be at.

The you simply run the executable pointing to the .bin file. ie:

FWUpdLcl64.exe -f ME8_1.5M_Production.BIN

Run that via command line as admin. If you're trying to execute the .bat file by double-clicking it via GUI, I wouldn't do it that way..

I reflashed the factory bios.. 0607.. bluethoot controller problem is solved..


but the original problem was the ram (teamgroup 16gb kit)..


I had sporadic bsod, i try a memtest.. after few seconds memtest detected some hundreds errors..

I tested the same ram on other mobo.. 5 hour of memtest (4 pass completed) without error..

so probabily it's a compatibility problem..

so i decided to try to upgrade bios.. but I had a problem with bluethoot..

now I use factory bios.. and temporarily I'm using 2 module of 3channel kit g.skill for x58.. for now the system is stable and never bsod.. and bluethoot controller problem is solved..


now what do you suggest me to do for the ram?


thnx

Thanks, I got it now.

Can anyone say exactly what the Intel Management Engine actually even does and what updating the firmware accomplishes?

Rma the ram asap.
If it failed on your system and if it was on stock, then it shouldn't fail. Memtest isn't really testing compatibility but more so reliability.
On some systems it won't show the problem.

I had a ram problem myself, memtest after 11hrs didn't fail. But caused prime problems. As soon as I sent it in for rma, the company got the memtest problems within minutes.

Well I stated in this thread awhile back about BIOS 1617.
I have the P8Z77-V Deluxe and had the same issue with the Bluetooth enable, On ASUS forum you see threads stating that too.
To make things even worst BIOS 1709 after 7 -8 reboots you will loose all settings they will revert to default.
Any BIOS after 1504 is buggy

I honestly feel sorry for the hardware engineers at asus.

I recently completed a new build using an Asus P8Z77-V Pro motherboard and I am having an unusual problem with one of the USB 3.0 ports. My case is a Lian Li PC-7HX which has a front 2 port USB 3.0, mic, and headphone in header.

The problem is: when plugging in a Seagate GoFlex Desk USB 3.0 external hard drive in the left USB 3.0 port, it does not recognize the drive and keeps making the USB connect/disconnect sound. The "safely remove hardware" icon seems to keep flashing on and off like it is trying to connect, but then keeps disconnecting. The odd thing is, the drive works in the other port (the right one) with no problem. This header is connected to the mid-board USB 3.0 connector on the right side of the board near the SATA connectors.

In an attempt to trouble shoot, I tried the drive in every other USB 3.0 port on the back of the board and it worked without a problem. Thinking the header might be busted, I then opened the case and plugged in the header to the other mid-board USB 3.0 connector (the one at the bottom of the board near the front panel audio connector). Here, the drive worked fine in both the right and left port so it doesn't look like the header is at fault.

I then plugged the header back into the original mid-board port- still didn't work in the left USB port. However, my SanDisk USB flash drive and WD Passport Drive both work in the left USB port...? These two items are both USB 2.0, so maybe the USB 3.0 portion of the port is broke?

But, get this- at one point after unplugging the GoFlex from the left USB port and then quickly plugging it back in- the drive was recognized and working? WTH?

Can ports within USB hubs become broken like this, or is something else the culprit?

As far as drivers and System I am running Windows 8 Pro so it has the built in USB drivers. I also have:
BIOS 1708
Intel INF 9.3.0.1025
Intel Management Engine Driver 8.1.2.1318
Management Engine Firmware 8.1.0.1248
Rapid Storage Technology 11.7.0.1013

I know from the first post that I can update some of these drivers if you think that is the problem. I would also like to know if the USB 3.0 drivers can be installed since it's my understanding they are only for Windows 7? According to the Asus manual it says there is one mid-board ASMedia USB 3.0 connector and one Intel Z77, but at another point in the manual it says they are both Intel Z77- not sure which is correct of if either can be updated with drivers.

If you think drivers are the problem, is there a reason why most of the drivers linked to on the front page are not offered through Intel's site? Are they not "official" drivers yet?

Thank you for any help in this frustrating matter!

I just attempted to install the newest (3 December 2012 11.7.0.1013) RST package and the system freezes on boot.

I managed to squeak out of the lockup by running system repair/restore.
