Maybe you misunderstood something somewhere because I screwed up or I am fundamentally missing the point here, but I was asking about switching which monitor was the default out of two that are plugged into the discrete graphics (in UEFI / POST / etc., not in an OS). How does doing anything related to the iGPU change this?

I'm saying that if you have an OS-based OC loading at start up, and it fouls or is not stable due to component drift or whatever, resulting in an inability to enter windows... how are you gonna undo it? just enable F8 if you run win10 so you can enter save mode BEFORE the bad OC attempts to load.

Again, what are you talking about? I have a modest OC set in UEFI tuned for relatively low noise more than pushing performance. I have a profile through AI Suite that activates only when certain programs are running (that are not running at startup) to downvolt/downclock the system further—around to stock speeds—for even lower noise. Both sets of settings are stable.

Are you saying that AI Suite being open at all overrides the UEFI setting, even if the profile is not engaged?

Right now, as it is, the damn Turbo App setting to switch states when a program on the list loads doesn't even persist from boot to boot (perhaps intentionally out of what you think are the concerns here?) so it's not even active anyway until I manually have to turn it on.

I confess. I completely misunderstood. When you mentioned UEFI I took it for granted that you were referring to the onboard graphics. Occasionally I run 2 monitors but I always boot to the main one. I have no clue as to how to select one over the other on boot as I've never attempted that. I will check it out though.

see the text I put in bold when quoting your post above. That's all I was referring to. You asked abouyt making the settings persist. Sorry if you are not getting what you want.

After loading optimised default settings, save & exit and reboot,
When I attempt to reload any of my saved oc profiles, the system freezes right after hitting enter
Need to do hard shutdown.

The saved settings were 1st created by manually entering them using current bios always
This time with 3401, I started saving my profiles as .CMO files
But same bug, after loading optimised defaults & restart, it freeze as soon as I click YES on choosing .CMO file on USB to load
Same freeze if I try loading any profile in UEFI
Shucks, have to manually enter & save all settings again frown.gif

Hey guys,

Just wanted to post my experience with Z170 Sabertooth Mark I with BIOS 3401 and the dreaded Creators Update.

I have the following configuration:
Z170 Sabertooth Mark I with BIOS 3401
980ti
2x8G Kingston Savage
950Pro NVMe on tne M.2 port (not the PCIe adapter) as system drive
2 x 850 Evo on sata ports 3 and 4
Forgot to add: UEFI with CSM compatibility disabled

At first, I tried installing the update normally. Received a notification that it was ready to install so I rebooted. During boot, I receieved this error.



A simple restart, and I got back to Windows but the update was not applied.

To keep the story as short as possible, I lost a day trying to figure it out:
- Clean installed Windows 1607, same thing
- Clean installed Windows 1607 without the 2 SSDs attached, same thing
- Clean installed Windows 1607 and not using any Asus drivers (only those which were installed through Windows update), same thing
- Clean installed Windows 1607, disconnected every peripheral, same thing
- Clean installed Windows 1607 with Secure Boot disabled, same thing
- Tried updating using an USB from Media Creation tool, same thing

Finally, my attention moved to BIOS settings. It seems that between v1702 and v3401, Asus added a menu for controlling Thunderbolt settings. Completely disabling Thunderbolt fixed my issue.

The error enclosed in the BSOD referred to winload.efi located on the recovery partition and not the C drive. I checked this with EasyBCD just before the restart and saw that it was set to boot from recovery once. Why it couldn't though, and how the thunderbolt option influenced it I can only speculate.

Hope this helps someone as nothing I found regarding this error and Creators update helped me.

One question guys:

How do you configure the bios for ubuntu installation?

Which parameters or options are the ones to deactivate / change?

It depends on what you are doing. Are you installing Ubuntu alone, or alongside windows, or other linuces? You can install UEFI or CSM(Legacy). With UEFI, you can install with secure boot or without, without is likely easier. If you are installing alongside a win 8.1 or 10 UEFI install you must also turn off fast boot within windows itself as well as secure boot. There are many parameters that you must determine to lead to the exact answer.

Can anyone disable onboard wifi properly on this BIOS? Since BIOS 3016, disabling it in bios still shows it in device manager. Never used to be the case with older BIOSes
