[MOD] LGA775 Support For LGA771 Xeon CPUs - Page 1026

post #10251 of 12470
Yes, I know this already but thanks bud I appreciate you trying to help. I have been dual booting since the 1990's and building computers since the late 80's, I just don't want to do it on a single machine, hence why I built a second machine and using it in the same room on a second monitor. I want two machines, with one always on from now on (not counting my laptop or tablet). Lol, I got tired of firing up the laptop or trying to do research on the 8" tablet wink.gif

In regards to Linux, my only "new" issue is restarting or shutting down the Linux distro. The online searches and my 20 years of Linux use are not helping any, so today I am going to use a different SSD manufacturer (C300) to see if that Barefoot controller is what is causing the issue. Or maybe I should use Port1 for Linux and Port2 for Windows, who knows. I seriously doubt it had anything to do with the CPU change, but maybe it had something to do with the BIOS mod, which I also seriously doubt. I will let ya know soon.

Thanks @schuck6566 thumb.gif but I was hoping someone else with this Xeon mod had this same issue immediately following the modification, so no its not off topic as this issue didn't occur until immediately after I modified this system. Before the mod Linux was perfectly stable on it, so it is a perfectly natural start for me to question people in this thread (people with the same Xeon mod right?). Unfortunately Rich22, the only one with the same board has no experience with the matter. That's OK because I will no doubt solve it eventually, and it is probably not related to this mod at all. My guess is either the different ssd or something I broke in the BIOS. biggrin.gif

EDIT: OK, something interesting here. Now the live usb of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is not shutting down. This seems to point to the cpu or the bios now. Is it possible I didn't get the sticker perfectly situated or the bios mod correct? I did remove all the Pentium 4 microcodes because I didn't think they were needed. Going to download the bios again and modify it again I guess. Jeez man lol

Just remember they made these able to play with uefi so you have to use the right loader.<--- I just dable with linux,but it's great for some things!smile.gif

Thanks schuck, I figured it out sorta. I installed the Core 2 Duo and the unmodified BIOS and Linux is now working exactly as expected, so its the Xeon Mod, either the CPU or the BIOS. Going to now install the modified BIOS and see if it changes the way Linux works, lol. Don't you just love troubleshooting? If linux keeps working, then I might have the sticker incorrectly installed, but if not then I need to really mess around with BIOS settings or different versions maybe... will let ya know later today. Thanks again

P.S. Oh and I was using 16.04 ever since it was released, only the mod has changed things here, or maybe the different SSD. Nothing else has changed.

@schuck6566, all I need are the 45nm microcodes correct? The ONLY ones I modded in previously were these two below? I didnt see any reason for the 65nm xeon codes, or any other cpu for that matter. All I have here in the way of 775/771 is one E6700 and one E5450. So all I need are the 45nm codes I would assume. And that's what I did previously. Am I correct?

cpu0001067a_plat00000011_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin
cpu0001067a_plat00000044_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin

Going to mod some older BIOS's as well and do some testing while I have the time.

Right, you only NEED to add which ever code your specific cpu calls for. 45nm 1067a:thumb:

OK, looks like BIOS 1236 bricked the mobo for some reason. Followed the guide perfectly, and the flashing utility built into the BIOS seemed to flash it, verified it, and then it rebooted after 5 second normally. But after it came back up all I now have is the P5B Deluxe full screen logo. None of the keyboard buttons do anything any more. ALT+F2 is supposed to bring up the flashing utility, but it does not. Was fun while it lasted.

EDIT: By the way, ALWAYS use the engineering AFUDOS run from DOS if you want to downgrade your bios. I failed to remember this from so long ago.

Flashing this board with a new BIOS is a crapshoot- I twice thought I'd toasted the board, wouldn't boot, wouldn't even display an error message or logo, just deathly black. Unplugged everything and popped the battery and came back 20 mins later to restart and magically everything came back to life, and I have the new BIOS up and running merrily!

EDIT: A few times this board has given me keyboard issues, after clearing CMOS, things like that- I've had to ditch the USB mouse and keyboard and dig out old PS/2 peripherals to get things going again...

Yeah Rich22 I hope that happens here too. I already found my old DB25 based SPI flashing cable and created a DOS USB boot disk with the appropriate files, so if it does not come back to life "miraculously" I will just reflash it via my Laptops parallel port, which is the only thing I ever used that port for. Thank heavens I still have a old enough machine to flash these old BIOS chips. If that don't work, then I might be breaking out my old Asus A7N8X and using its parallel port. So long I can find a stupid floppy drive somewhere that works, assuming it wont boot from usb.

I vaguely remember something about NOT back flashing older BIOS versions without using the engineering sample of AFUDOS but can't remember if this P5B was one of those boards or not (I want to say it is). I found a thread with instructions on how to flash a dead BIOS that has a SPI port next to it, like our P5B does. I went through one of my dozen boxes of cables and luckily found a DB25 male to what looks to be IDC10 female, so once I figure out the pin outs I will just build a flashing cable and hope it works. If not this BIOS chip is only $13 and thankfully super easy to solder on/off. I hope I don't have to do that though, I really hate buying things I already have, so id rather just fix the dead bios I already have, lol.
