Can anyone give me an alternative site to get the latest BIOS. It has not been posted on the asus site for several days. I called them and they said they were updating the site but that was 3 days ago. Thanks.

Two tips for perfect working V4 xeons.

From Asus: "The board requires the latest version of BIOS and also an update of a chip on the board for correct functionality with v4 CPUs. The update of the chip can be done only in ASUS Service Center."

From PugetSystems: "The Z10PE-D8 WS works fine with the v4 processors... as long as it was manufactured after October of 2015. Regardless of the BIOS version installed, if the board is older than that it will not work with the new processors. We've run into this once, but Asus had warned us about it. I have been told that the only solution is to send the board back to them (Asus) to be updated."

Past week i sent my mb to Asus service center, this was repaired but i dont have yet, its travelling to Chile, will post the results .

How do we tell?

Is there a manufactured date on the motherboard some where?

"Motherboard Serial Number

ASUS products have serial numbers that are 10 - 15 digits long. They have the following format:

1st digit: Year Manufactured (last digit of the year) (0 may be represented. by "A")
2nd digit: Month Manufactured (1-9, A-C)
3rd digit: Product code ("N" for notebook, "M" for motherboard, etc.)
Examples:
Motherboard manufactured in year 2010 (0 or "A"), September (9):
Serial Number: 09Mxxxxxxxxx or A9Mxxxxxxxxx

Motherboard manufactured in year 2009 (9), December (12 is represented by "C"):
Serial Number: 9CMxxxxxxxxx

Note:
There are no letter "O" anywhere in the serial number. It is always the figure "0"."

Hi Guys, I have this motherboard in a workstation that ran in to an issue and I was hoping someone might know whats going on with it.


Current config:
Intel 2690v3 x2
64gb Kingston ECC mem
256gb samsgung 950 Pro m.2 (Boot drive)
Scoprion Deluxe 1TB PCIe SSD (PCIE_2)
Nvidia gtx 950 (PCIE_3)
9TB Raid 0 array( 3x 3tb Seagate enterprise drive, SATA_4, SATA_3, SATA_4)
4Tb WD (SSata_4)

Windows 10 Pro 64


Initially the scorpion ssd raid failed. Rebooted and the configuration menu indicated one of the 256 drives was non functional. Tried to reboot back in to windows and was present with this message:




Removed the scorpion drive thinking it was causing the issue but upon restarting it presented the same error message. Removed the 4tb and it booted in to windows

Then I tried to install a 1tb sata ssd in SSATA_3 but it presented the same error message again. I then moved the ssd to each different SSata port, same error. Tried the original 4tb again in each Ssata port, same error.

Reinstalled the scorpion in to PCIE_4 to check if it would present the same error but it did not, booted successfully in to windows, also raid array initialised successfully.



At first I thought it hardware problem with the scorpion, it is close to two years old and has life of excessive read/writes. But I have recreated the array and it appears to be operating correctly now.




So, does this appear to be a hardware fault or a software fault? It seems with any drive plugged in to SSATA_1 - 4 windows will not boot due to a boot error. When I boot from a start up disk and go to command prompt all the drives are there, the 4TB drive appears as C, the 256 950 pro appears as F.

I reason that if it was a hardware error with a drive connected to SSATA_1 - 4, then the 950 pro wouldnt be accessible at all?

I havent tried to mess with the bcdedit etc as I need to backup everything first. Checked the bios and the boot order is fine. Not sure what is going on, everything was working, scorpion raid fails, then windows wont boot with the extra drive in yet scopion works again?!


Thanks for any help

Hi,
I just acquired Asus Z10PE-D16 WS and other components tro build a new system. I am wondering if the onboard M.2 slot supports NVME drives? If it does, has anyone tried to boot from an NVME drive installed in the M.2 socket on the board? Has anyone tried to boot from an NVME drive installed in a PCIE adapter installed in a PCIE slot on the board?
