X99 DELUXE II + SAMSUNG 960 PRO can't update firmware nor Magician

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
There is an issue with ASUS Deluxe II BIOS 1504 and Samsung 960 Pro when connected to m.2 slot directly (NOT M2 PCIE KIT).

If I install Magician 5 and reboot it throws error on Windows saying Magician has encountered an error and can't be open.
With Magician 4.97 it opens but it doesn't recognise the drive.
If I download ISO 2B7QCXE7 and reboot to update the firmware, it doesn't recognise the drive.
I have sent emails back and forth with Samsung support, I have done everything they say but they stop replying my emails because they ran out of options.

Does anyone have a similar experience?

Thanks

Hello,

Interesting. In an other thread I explain that I can't upgrade my 950 Pro because it's not seen by Magician 5.0 on an Asus X99 motherboard (RVe) like you. I haven't found a solution... but where did you grab ISO to upgrade FW of your drive ? They don't seem to be online neither for 950 Pro or 960 Pro ?

Thanks !

I think I screwed up my drive. Somehow I managed to install 960 EVO upgrade on my 960 PRO!!

I'm emailing Samsung tech support to see if I can get a copy of the original firmware so I can flash my drive back again!

I have an Asus RVE with a 950 Pro and I just upgraded the firmware with Magician 5.0 yesterday, it worked perfectly. R5E bios version 3009, 950 Pro's 2B0QBXX7.

edit: Magician 5.0 automatically flashed it, I didn't download anything specific.

Lucky you smile.gif Magician 5.0 just doesn't see my 950 Pro. As soon as NVMe 2.2 drivers are installed, the drive vanishes from Magician. With Microsoft drivers it's listed as Samsung 950 with absolutely no information/control/whatsoever.
