    Re: GIGABYTE Modified Bios

    Hi, I'm pretty new to this scene and would like to ask one thing - is it possible to force enable XMP on a H170 motherboard with a custom BIOS?
    I have a GA-H170-Gaming 3 board with me, and kinda sad to not be able to enable XMP for my 3000MHz kit RAMs.

    Re: GIGABYTE Modified Bios: ga-h55-ud3h microcodes

    Hello,

    I hope this is correct thread for updating bioses microcodes...

    Could you guys help me to update Gigabyte ga-h55-ud3h rev. 1.0 mobos bios microcodes, so I could get xeon x3470 working.

    What I have done so far:
    1. Downloaded intel microcode date file from here https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...code-Data-File
    2. Created .bin files from microcode dat with command
    Code:
    c:\temp\microdecode\microdecode.exe microcode.dat
    3. Compined my current cpus microcode .bin file and xeon x3470 microcode file to one binary with
    Code:
    copy /b cpu00020652_plat00000012_ver0000000e_date20130626.bin +cpu000106e5_plat00000013_ver00000007_date20130820.bin NCPUCODE.BIN
    4. Downloaded F10 bios from Gigabytes site (GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1156 - GA-H55-UD3H (rev. 1.3))
    5. Flashed downloaded bios to mobo with Q-flash to ensure that it works and is correct bios (and it did work)
    6. Cleared nc_cpucode from bios file with command
    Code:
    cbrom.exe h55ud3h.f10 /nc_cpucode release
    7. Setted read-only attribute to NCPUCODE.BIN file so cbrom won't write to it
    Code:
    attrib +R NCPUCODE.BIN
    8. Written new microcodes to bios file with command
    Code:
    cbrom195.exe h55ud3h.f10 /nc_cpucode NCPUCODE.BIN
    9. Tried to flash modified bios to mobo ---> INVALID BIOS from Q-Flash

    So the problem is that Q-Flash does not accept modified bios and just tells that it is invalid. What do I do wrong or is there some kind of checksum check to validate bios??

    More info about bios:
    Code:
    cbrom195.exe h55ud3.f10 /d

    I did also wonder what are those crcinit.bin and test.bin roms?
    And of course I have not done this never earlier.

    Thank you already for help!

    You should ask GB Technical Support.

    Not yet, the board is a v1.0 with the original BIOS so will not post with the 2609 Xeon in, I don't have a original BIOS supported CPU to hand to update the BIOS with, without memory and the 2609 in it beeps continuously, with memory in and 2609 in it does not beep at all, it just never outputs anything to display, tried multiple known working GPUs and multiple known working sticks of ram.

    I have an ezp2010 along with a sop8 clip coming in the mail that will let me, hopefully, flash the BIOS without desoldering it from the board, just asking whether I should be getting my hopes up or not about it working with the 2609 when official CPU support list only states 2609v2

    Re: GIGABYTE Modified Bios

    Sorry, really new to all of this so hopefully I'm not being too anouying in asking!What I'd like to know is, does the modified bios add support for cpu's that official bioses don't support?
    I have a GA-X79-UD3, the F16 bios supports a Xeon 2609v2, but I have a Xeon 2609v1, would the modified bios for this board allow the 2609v1 to work in this board?

    Re: GIGABYTE Modified Bios

    I had the same problem with a LSI 9260 8i...
    Try the following

    On systems that do not have the PS/2 port, you must enable port 60/64 emulation in the System BIOS to emulate USB as PS2

    It works for me

    It took me a while, but I think I've found the right people to help me! Glad you guys exist.

    I'm running my GA-Z77X-UD5H with one of your BIOS mods. This to be exact:

    GA-Z77X-UD5H BIOS F16 mod11

    With this BIOS mod running, the board is absolutely fantastic. Without it, not so great...

    Anyway, I'm seeking an answer to a PCI-E card support issue. My LSI SAS Gen3 HBA simply won't post on this board. It just locks the entire POST process. Through a little bit of reading I've realised that this is due to the BIOS having a lack of support for int19h or interrupt 19 capture, allowing other cards to dump then jump their own BIOS in pre-boot environments.

    So I'm desperately seeking a way to make the board support said int19h functionality.

    Is this something you could help me with?

    Thank you for your time and work. It has made my board far better than originally intended...

    Original UEFI BIOS U1G has ME fw 8.0.0.1351.

    Other ROM's you can update easy with UBU 1.45.8

    I have GA-Z68XP-UD3P with F7 BIOS. Can I flash this BIOS to my board or first need flash U1G(UEFI BIOS) thеn this modified BIOS?
    To flash by @BIOS or other?
    My board come with ME 7.1.20.1119, now I update to 7.1.80.1214, and this BIOS have ME 8.x. Is this normal? Will my board work good?
