Need help with a X99-E WS motherboard

Hi,

Linked some instabilities, I changed two options in the bios (MemTest to enable and enhanced training to enable). Now the machine don't start at all ...
I tried to reset the BIOS without success ..... Any way to recovery or update the bios ?

zlpw0ker I'm not entirely sure this has been answered before in this thread,but is ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card V2 supported on this motherboard in uefi?
I dont want to use the VROC.
Also does our motherboard support bifurcation?
I really need 1 AIC that can hold 2x m.2 NVME drives, since I have plan to get an 970 pro besides my already 950 Pro and I need something that doesnt take up 2 pcie slots. I mean I can use the onboard m.2 slot,but using that slot really gives out alot of heat and therefore thermal throttles the m.2 drive and whatever runs so slowly that it feels like my os drive is a hdd that runs on the IDE interface.

DungeonKeeper1 Hi all,

now updated from 1302 to 4001.

After flash 2009, i have a bleck screen and PC didnt start. What a shockmoment!
Then i pull out the power cable and take out CMOS battery. After CMOS reset, the system starts and i flashed 4001.
The Firmware flashed 4 times. 1. Normal flash, then after restart another flash and a restart again it flashes the third time.
I think it flashed the controllers maybe?

But now, system is running very well and fast.

DocYoda I have the WS/USB3.1. I had my mobo RMAed together with the CPU due to qcode 00. New CPU and new MOBO replacement. Now was able to boot and experienced freezing in windows. I get error 6F (bF) then changed RAM which worked flawlessly in other machines. Able to boot but had freezing issues. Updated BIOS to 4001. Same issue. Did all troubleshooting including reseating CPU (no bents upon checking). I get either 6F (bF) or 76. Any solution?

z3razerviper Hello everyone I just wanted to document an issue I was having after the Win10 1903 update. Apparently windows reverted me back to the stock SATA drivers after the update. Which on nearly every cold boot failed to completely detect my extra drives . Basically windows said it saw them but you could not access them. After a reboot you could see/use them...most of the time. I was also getting a lot of "The IO operation at logical block address for Disk was retried" in the Event Viewer . Note this was not for just 1 disk it was for 3. After installing the 10.1.2.19 intel chipset drivers off the Asus X99-E WS product page both controllers are now listed correctly and the issue has gone away plus disk performance is back to where it should be.

Intel(R) C610 series/X99 chipset 6-Port SATA AHCI Controller - 8D02
Intel(R) C610 series/X99 chipset sSATA AHCI Controller 1 - 8D62

Is it just me or is trying to find drivers on the Intel website maddening? Am I do something wrong?

I also wanted to note I am using hardware bitlocker on all my sata drives and software bitlocker on my 1 8TB backup disk

Thanks

ThrashZone Hi,
Bios rarely if ever address Intel security flaws it's all Intel micro code updates for one and like I said MS is handling them plus any other os security flaws to workaround other flaws
New bios may have a micro code installed in it or new management engine but that's about it other than performance improvements usually related to memory.

It's just a game of whack a mole of threats one is so unlikely to get hit by it's silly to even entertain any worries over.
