Great news then, good it's working again now! Stop there, no need to program anymore until I make another BIOS.
In order to make another BIOS, I will need to try and enable those settings I showed you on page one from the Intel BIOS Integrator Toolkit.
Then you will need to flash that BIOS from windows, then make a new dump with that BIOS, for me to edit back in microcodes again. ONce you verify the VT and VT-d show up in BIOS.
You never did reply to me about that post and these settings (in post #3) are those VT settings already visible to you in the BIOS, just disabled by default?
I need to know wether "Disable" in that app is a disable by default setting or disabled means invisible to the user. I can adjust those two shown settings, that's the only ones related to what you asked about initially.

It appears to be the same before the update. Maybe I should try installing Windows 10 again and see what happens.
I assumed this would happen. The stock BIOS is made only for flashing from windows, or DOS, using Intel's flash update tools. It's not a BIOS you can program with the programmer like your backup or any made from your backup.
CPU-z does not show microcodes in use. To see that you will need to either find in BIOS if you see CPUID info anywhere, or in windows with app like AIDA64 (In motherboard, CPUID section, then microcode update revision) - https://www.aida64.com/downloads
Freeware HWInfo will also show you - https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php
I do not see compareexchange or compareexchange128 mentioned on your Intel CPU link, not sure what this error is I'll have to dig around in google and see if I can find what causes that.
Clearing CMOS might help, but I am not sure the cause, have to read more first. If you do clear CMOS, be sure once you're done go into the BIOS and load optimal or optimized defaults, whatever the terminology is, then make any needed changes you want and save.
I found this at microsoft, it's old, but seems some CPU's may not support installing x64 Win10 no matter what???? What the heck I say to that!
I kenw they initially tried to say Win10 would only work with latest CPU's, but that was quickly squashed out I thought.
See also, about CPU instruction, and see if that mentioned instruction is shown for your CPU in HWinfo
And see here too, it shows how to check the exact instruction with AIDA64 (Scroll down in AIDA64 from where you see image above, to see all instructions supported), and covers some BIOS settings may need changed or set
Then, finally lets verify the microcode update is being applied, show me image of HWinfo so I can see and check the version and date compared to what's in the ucodes.
Tonight I will make you new BIOS with those VT settings changed, so you can flash from windows, make a new backup with programmer, and send over so I can update.
Before you do the backup though, verify the VT settings show up in BIOS after I change the settings.
