BIOS 80 BETA Updates:
  • Updates Intel RAID Rom to 10.5.0.744
  • Updates CPU Microcode to version 13
  • Updates Intel AHCI Rom to 1.07.10
  • Updates JMicron ROM to 1.07.25
  • Updates Realtek PXE Rom to 2.39
snip... 

Few observations...

1. RAID ROM initializes inline with the JMicron ROM.  It would be nice to either put it on its own screen or at least have a couple of new lines (blank lines) before the RAID ROM initialization.  It is difficult to distinguish it when it is inline.
2. AHCI ROM is not from Intel.  It is from Phoenix, but it is an updated version it seems from the 1.06.70 to 1.07.10.  A list of changes would be nice.
3. It would be nice to get more details on how to use some of the updated features in the Intel RAID ROM, particularly the Acceleration and Recovery options (or inform us that they cannot be used if specific to P67 and newer).

I'm seeing faster boot times (POST and boot to Windows), and everything else seems to be working as expected.  I ran a quick benchmark and had a few MB/s gain in read and write speeds almost across the board.  This is nice to see.  Overall, works pretty good and with the above changes/information/corrections I think that it would be pretty solid.

I also compared this 10.5 RAID option ROM to the 10.1.0.1008 and prior and noticed that 10.5 compresses smaller than previous releases.  Did you guys strip anything down or is the ROM just like this now (shrunk in size again)?

Acceleration feature is a feature in Intel RAID ROM 10, but not usable on X58 chipset.

The RAID Rom needed to be customized to fit into the Award BIOS.

I will check with the RAID/ROM inline with JMicron.

Good, thanks.  One last question for now...I just want to make sure that "The RAID Rom needed to be customized to fit into the Award BIOS" does not mean "had features stripped off".
 
What was done in terms of "customization"?

Been awhile since I have updated my bios.(don't fix it if it aint broken). After all this RAID-ROM talk, figured I would give it a shot with Bios 80. Flash went fine, no problems with any of my overclock settings. Runs just fine. Performance increase everyone was ranting about? All me benchmarks are the SAME as they were before. Oh well, go figure, LOL.

That's what I would like to know too. What was "customized" to make it fit?

Items that are not particular or supported on the X58 chipset were removed.

My Board will not update and in fact I could not update the last bios either,
 
Mine just sits there at the bios screen blinking "Please Input File Name" and the file name is there allready {e770_80 .bin} 
I  have been sitting for 10 minutes thinking it will take but guess not..
Anybody have a clue as to why and how I can get this bios 80 working..?

All I know is the filename at first didn't include a slash (ex: E77080.bin)
 
*shrug*
 
Good luck though

I did a quick test on the memory bandwidth, can I cannot see any difference in memory latency or bandwidth from v78 to v80 using Sisoft.

Just did a quick test on E770 and it completed ok, any chance you can burn it again or perhaps burn a CD this time?

Jacob, are you guys going to add Intel AHCI instead of the current one? Thanks.

If you guys can't because of space could we get one that removes realtek rom and adds Intel AHCI instead? Thanks.

Flashed my SLI LE 757 board and now it won't boot to my RAID array and BIOS is full of weird symbals. It doesn't recognize any of my optical drives either. The menu for Hard disk boot priority only says Bootable add-in cards too. No option for my RAID array. 
 
Please help!

I can give me a minute. The symbols look like little OHM symbols all over. Sometimes they appear and sometimes its normal. I have lost the ability to boot to anything apparently. It no longer recognizes any optical drive. 
 
Any help you can be would be great...my life is on that RAID array and all my school work (college) is too. Its going to be a long night.

Kaimelar

Getting couple entries in Eventviewer.

10 entries of

Event ID: 10
Source: WMI

Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

Also there were 8 entries of

Source: Disk
Event ID: 11

The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\DR1

 
Try to Install latest Intel Raid drivers version 10.0.1008 i believe. For those other errors, i have seen those after SP1 install. I had them too. I did research with MS and they said you can ignore or run a script they gave me to disable those so they are not annoying
