Nope just enable it in the csm section under the boot tab in the bios.



Enabling it in CSM and rebooting the system says it can't find the boot device....




Is it still set to to uefi for boot. If it is I 'am out of idea's.

Quote - Support UEFI RAID. The UEFI RAID configuration page will exist under Advanced page when user set to RAID mode and disable CSM function.
 
In order to set this you have to also modify the video to EUFI and reboot, I did all this, disabled CSM, rebooted, no UEFI raid configuration page in the Advanced page is available when set to RAID mode. Maybe I am missing something, I have clicked everywhere....
 
Also, with each new release, the system gets slower and the overclocks get worse.... I no longer am anxious waiting for a new BIOS to be released.
 
Also, why is it Corsair RGB mechanical keyboards refuse to work in these new X99 motherboards? I ask Corsair, they blame EVGA, I contacted EVGA, they blame Corsair. A damn near $4,000 system and I have to keep a cheap USB keyboard plugged in to make BIOS changes. 
 
Sorry to be a Debby Downer but nuts....


I cant get it working , it goes into bios after  reboot
 
same thing as you

Guys try leaving CSM enabled in bios and just switch from legacy to uefi for the option rom for the raid.

You have to post images of your Bios Settings, nice reason for EVGA to add this feature in the newer MB and Bios.

Did you test the CPU any at that speed? If so what temps were you seeing? I had to run a similar slightly lower voltage to get to 4799MHz and found that when I tested it I would spike to around 80c very quickly. But I didn't go much past maybe 81 or 82. But those were only while benching.

Is the vCore really 1.549 Volts and are you running that high of a voltage as well zophar

I got a full Passmark run and then after rebooting to do further testing it wouldn't post, the system would just click and flash BIOS codes. I had to master reset to get back in so while I did get some benchmarks it wasn't stable after that. I got almost that high with only 1.38volts before so this new version isn't impressing me much. Plus I still can't get UEFI RAID to work.

Mine when set that way says it can't find the boot device during post, where is EVGA on this? Proper instructions could help as well. Doing it as they posted my system wants me to set video as UEFI, reboot and then turn off CSM, turning off CSM and my system just posts into the BIOS screen.

It's not stable, it only ran once at that speed, long enough for Passmark, which was a final score of 7650, should have taken screen shots. My systems even at stock clocks with this BIOS version can sometimes just go through post code clicks, I then have to power off and back on to get a clean post.
 
1.14 is worse than 1.13, in my humble opinion.

I honestly thought I was losing it, I have tried what was initially posted by EVGA, going their route it just posts into the BIOS, plus there is an extra step of changing video to UEFI, then disabling CSM.
 
Doing it the CSM route for me just gets a can't find boot device error during post...
 
It would have been nice if this was vetted and documented prior to release.

ASUS is looking better by the day. I WANT to like EVGA, I bought 2 Classified GTX 980's and the 1300 watt PSU plus the Classified Mobo but their software compared to Asus, plus this BIOS... NOT IMPRESSED FOLKS.
 
I have over $2,000 in video, mobo and psu from EVGA and I'm getting spanked by systems with the Asus Rampage mobo.

Not quite that high, and only for a couple minutes. Not really worried about killing it, I have the replacement plan at Micro Center so if it dies I just walk in and they swap it out.

I don't see the Xeon E5-2680 V3 listed in the supported CPUs.  I see there is an E5-2685 and didn't know if that was a typo.

Yup it works fine.  Make sure your drives are in the proper slots for raid.  Boot in uefi, leave CSM enabled if you want, set storage oprom to uefi, then go in advanced and set sata ports to raid mode.  Restart computer and reenter bios.  Now go to normal advanced tab and intel storage manager.  Build your raid volume and then set as the top boot drive.  Now if your csm option for boot filter is set for uefi only, you must have your OS installed in uefi mode in order for your system to not boot back to bios again, it will only find volumes with the uefi boot partitions slapped on there.

I have 4 Intel 730 series SSD's in RAID0, per EVGA we don't need to rebuild, I followed their directions to do this and it doesn't work. I agree, you SHOULD have the system built in UEFI mode prior to this, but tell EVGA that. When set correctly, the system behaves as I would expect it to, it says it can't find the boot device, because the system was built using Legacy mode, however per EVGA, this is a simple switch without a rebuild, so if that's so, it would be nice if somebody from EVGA would chime in and say definitively but they have disappeared since they posted early on about 1.14.
 
I work too damn many hours for this run around crap where only forum members are chiming in on what they think will work. While I agree with you, if I want this to work, it's going to require a rebuild, it would be friggin nice if EVGA could answer some questions on a thread they started when this chit doesn't behave as they say it will.

Well it looks like the 12core 2680 works. We slapped it in today and it was running fine.

I have 4 Intel 730 series SSD's in RAID0, per EVGA we don't need to rebuild, I followed their directions to do this and it doesn't work. I agree, you SHOULD have the system built in UEFI mode prior to this, but tell EVGA that. When set correctly, the system behaves as I would expect it to, it says it can't find the boot device, because the system was built using Legacy mode, however per EVGA, this is a simple switch without a rebuild, so if that's so, it would be nice if somebody from EVGA would chime in and say definitively but they have disappeared since they posted early on about 1.14.
 
I work too damn many hours for this run around crap where only forum members are chiming in on what they think will work. While I agree with you, if I want this to work, it's going to require a rebuild, it would be friggin nice if EVGA could answer some questions on a thread they started when this chit doesn't behave as they say it will.
 


Your OS isn't formatted in uefi, that's likely your problem.  You need your OS installed so that you see three partitions on your drive/volume.  See if there is indeed three partitions in disk management, should be system recovery, efi, and your ntfs partition.  Your system will boot back to bios if it isn't set up that way.  Make sure the main directory of your install media has the bootmgr.efi file instead of the bootmgr.exe file to ensure it's installing correctly.
 
Edit:  meant to mention that I used to set up my raid in legacy mode during the intel rom appearance (didn't see another way of doing it before), but would restart and switch to uefi before installing the OS.  It doesn't work otherwise, your OS must be installed in the correct format unfortunately, you can't transition.  EVGA was right about your volume being able to transition on the raid controller (like a raid5 storage), but the problem lies with the boot data on the volume in your case.

CSM,
UEFI Firmware https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824898.aspx
    Compatibility with legacy BIOS. Some UEFI-based PCs contain a Compatibility Support Module (CSM) that emulates earlier BIOS, providing more flexibility and compatibility for end users. To use the CSM, Secure Boot must be disabled.

Boxlid and bcannaugh,
 
I agree with both of you, however EVGA is silent, they start a thread all excited about 1.14 and give WRONG instructions and all we do is guess after because it worked one way for one person and another way for another person.
 
I am going to rebuild this weekend with the system configured for all UEFI after creating a new image of the current config because I believe as Boxlid does that this isn't just a switch, considering their instructions are to turn CSM off which seems to affirm our understanding.

Remember that EVGA cannot give us instructions on how to Overclock our Motherboards.
Forum Members and some of the Techs do help out in this endeavor.
It is really up to the owner of the Motherboard to learn how to overclock and set your bios up.
If you keep your Motherboard at the Default or Optimized Settings then you should not have any issues with any Motherboard.
As soon as you start you are on your own so to speak.
Your Partner to assist in this endeavor are the Members of this Forum.
 
My X99 Motherboard will be the first Motherboard I will use only UEFI Settings so for me it will all be new.
I got this board to Overclock and Have Fun with Games and Folding and Crunching so I will have all none used items in the Bios Disabled. This Includes Raid of any Kind.
Remember that Microsoft also throws out UFEI Settings from their OS, so we also will need to learn all of this.
 
I hope to have my X99 Classified Motherboard up by the end of today, less the GTX 980 HC Graphics Cards.
Using Windows 7U I will most likely install the OS 5 or 6 Times to see what makes this Motherboard Tick.

Sweet Booted up my new X99 Classified Motherboard on Bios 1.06 all came up with now issues at all.
Updating the Bios now through Bios interface, so glad this now part of the EVGA Bios.

I don't remember asking them for help overclocking? I have no problems with that aspect. I asked them to explain their UEFI RAID that they started this thread with when telling us about the 1.14 BIOS update. What irks me is they gave the wrong instructions and have not followed up for those of us who followed the instructions only to be met with problems. Seems the least they could do, is follow up.
 
Were you meaning your comments for somebody else?

Think it was kmarch that said the array could be migrated over, but he wasn't specific as to whether it was storage or a boot volume.  EVGA just said uefi raid manager could be activated by disabling csm (everything in uefi mode), not that your specific volume could migrate over, or the other option of csm on and storage oprom in uefi

Mine is my boot array. I am using 4 Samsung 850 pros in a raid 0 config. I had mine done originally thought the raid option rom and then just moved it over to uefi. 
Also I am running windows 8.1 that I installed for uefi.

Re: BIOS 1.14 released! 2015/01/25 15:24:52 (permalink)
I have some questions for all of you who have recently set up an EVGA Classified X-99 Board.
Although I do not yet have my board, it should be here this week. It looks like I'm going with the Corsair Dominator Platinum 4X4 kit for memory (CAS Latency16 version), and a 5930k CPU. Lots of power with 1300 EVGA PSU and the new GTX 970 FTW GPU. (No SLI) OK, I'm coming from an ASUS Formula Maximus Sata II that runs great, but after numerous BIOS revisions and a CPU upgrade circa '08.
Now my questions are:
(1.)  Can I boot directly into the Windows7 Ultimate that is the OS that is being used for the above? Just hook into that same disk, or do I have to do a fresh re-install? I have full retail version of OS but going thru all the updates will be a PITA.
(2.)Should I try to update BIOS/UEFI first or wait till I can get a fully stable post into OS or Windows7 disk? Or not connect SDD (Samsung 850 Pro 512GB) at all and just post into oblivion? Can you do this? I have no clue what BIOS revision I'll be getting and the Manual for this board is very vague re a new setup. It just discusses the way how to bolt things up. The obvious stuff. I truly have no idea what the heck to expect.
(3.)Can anyone run me through their 1-2-3 procedure? It would be highly appreciated.
BTW: I've never had a hardware installation problem (Knock on Wood). It's always about software. It really takes the suppliers a while to get this part right. As well, they are reluctant to admit there are problems. We should all be compensated for being their lab rats, instead of paying the premium for being the first ones.$$$

Update the bios to at least 1.14 first, the early bios was buggy.  To update the bios, there is instructions in the bios update thread at the top.  You'll then want to either set memory to xmp profile or manual timings/voltage/frequency.  Save profile.  Now set uefi boot mode, csm's to uefi (except disabled one), and reset again.  If your hardware all accepts uefi and you make it to the bios again, set your boot device order.  If your hardware is incompatible, just hit reset cmos again, and reload that profile you just created.  Just change that csm item back to legacy that created the problem.  If your old install is legacy, it won't work in uefi mode, so a reformat will be required for sure.  You'll have 3 system partitions if it is (including the efi partition).  You don't absolutely need to run in uefi, but you won't be able to take advantage of all the goodness that it brings (example is raid volume manager right in the bios)
