Asus P8Z68-V Pro & P8Z68-V Pro / Gen3 & P8Z68-V / Gen3 Bios Mods with updated Oproms - Page 3

You dont have to click the CSMCORE, i.e: In MMTool (Aptio) "Load Image" (original BIOS ROM/CAP file) Then click "Replace" from the top tab, browse for the "BIN/OROM" you want to add/replace, Then tick the box "For Option ROM only" this will let you choose which device ID's OROM you want to update/replace. Then Click "Replace" then click "Save Image".

So, I should load Azus Original bios file, select CSMCORE and Insert one by one, right? After that I saved a modded bios and them flash within the bios program.
Is all that correct?
Because the first thing I did before those understanding was trying to upgrade the bios within the bios program like an Asus original bios file, that was not the way I understand afer.


Sorry, i lost you somewhere ?

Updating a moded bios is just like updating a normal bios (no need to do anything other then run asus ez bios from within the bios, load the new bios and flash).

You shouldn't mess with the CSMCORE of the bios file unless you want to update something and know what you are doing, anyhow in the case of this mod its irrelevant because the csmcore already contains the new oproms (that's the idea behind the bios mod).

What is the size of the file that you are trying to flash to your bios chip ? have you verified that it is not corrupted.

Note that the flashing of the bios is very simple while the mod of it is done before flashing, on the bios file, using tools like MMTool.

I had a big issue installing probably one of those modules/roms. It was Intel rom. I have one Corsair_CSSD-F602.1b.

I have my system installed on him and also for backup two seagates in raid 0.

The problem was, after updating, it does not occurred with Asus original bios. A

fter a cold boot system hangs showing a blue screen of windows 8 saying that a problem occurred. The most interesting that after a reboot, not a cold boot windows loaded normally. I tested it several times with the same result.

Needless to say that all drivers were updated after and before flashing the room. I even formatted the PC to check that behavior without the raid, and after cold boot the the same problem and sometimes Corsair got vanished from system. Just rebooting he gets back and load everything normal.

Into the bios I have selected RAid for the discs and not AHCI because the Raid of seagate.

Now I am back to the Asus official bios.

Any further suggestions?

I did it first of everything. I downloaded p8z68-v-pro-gen3-asus-3402__mod5.rom and run azus ez bios within the bios for that modded rom but Asus said it was not a valid UEF rom Bios and stopped the process. I checked the size and downloaded again to recheck with no different answer.

Just in case, my mobo is this one: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z68VGEN3/#specifications

His BIOS is for the PRO version you have the Non-PRO version thats why it wont let you flash it.

I'm still losing you, get from the start, which mb do you have, what are you trying to do?

The Corsair_CSSD-F602.1b is firmware for corsair SSD drives! not a module related to bios files in any way, it's a firmware (not an oprom!) that is made for the firmware chip on the SSD drive, you need corsair's firmware tool to update it.

I think that you are mixing few things and i wouldn't recommend playing with mmtool unless you know what are you doing. You can EASILY mess your board - bring it to a state of wrong firmware's on the chips so it wont power up, in that case you will need a chip burner to put the right firmware on the chip again, to revive the mb.

Anyhow, in order for trim to work properly with some SSDs you need to do several things that are unrelated:

1. Update the firmware of the SSD itself (in your case probably the Corsair_CSSD-F602.1b file).
2. Update the Oprom of intel raid in the bios to the new version 1702 and flash the bios with updated rom, so the software of the chip will be current.
3. Install updated drivers in windows that are suitable for your hardware settings.

Note that you CAN'T replace an oprom in the bios file with a different one from a different vendor/software/whatever, you only update to the same oprom in newer version, exactly you need to be very precise about the oprom that you are replacing because if you put a wrong piece of code there, then your whole mb wont work (as in the case you have described).

If you need help with your mod then post accurate description of what you are trying to do and system specs obviously, without these i cant help, sorry.

But i give you a thumb up for trying! thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

I lost him completely ..., do you think that he's mixing bios versions of two models?

Ps: when you write 'HIS' you mean mine or cybersm's haha ? MINE is pro , like in the title of this post.

Well, here you go, thats your problem.

Your mb is P8Z68-V/GEN3 --> http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z68VGEN3 ,
Mine is P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 --> http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z68V_PROGEN3/#specifications

You are trying to flash a bios of the wrong mb model on your system, ofcourse it doesn't work.

You didn't brick your mb only because its a close model and the bios is very similar.

You need to download latest bios 3402 (it is the same bios version for two different model, it's a bit confusing...) , and mod the bios file for your mb model.

If you need more help then post your questions, or you can just ask for a modded bios from garikfox , it shouldn't take him more then 2mins to make it and he probably already have all the files sorted on his computer ready for requests like this smile.gif

Anyhow just begin from the start, using the right bios .. and it should work with no problem.

I wrote wrongly - my SSD is Corsair CSSD-F60GB2-A and F602.1b is the firmware of course.


I get wrongly a misunderstanding about my Mobo's models.

So does your new modded bios works well now ?
