    FAQ

    Does this thread apply to me?

    The Intel RAID option ROM is typically only active when Intel RAID Technology is enabled in the system BIOS setup. If you are running in IDE or AHCI then you should disregard an out-dated ROM as the cause of any problems.
    If your board has trouble recognising your SSDs, booting from them, hanging or corrupting the serial number; updating your BIOS will most likely fix any problems.
    The Intel RAID ROM version is shown on the screen just after the POST. v7.5.0.1017 seems to be the most common version which includes the problems. The screenshot below gives an example, serial number corruption can be seen on ports 3 and 4 and the SSD isn't detected (credit to nsa666 for the screenshot):



    My motherboard isn't listed

    Simply PM me, preferably with a link to the latest current BIOS and I’ll mod it for you.

    My RAID ROM splash screen shows ICH10R instead of ICH9R?!

    I’ve used a ROM which is compatible with both, nothing to worry about. If it really bothers you PM me and I'll edit it out.

    How do I flash?

    It’s best to first consult the motherboard manual or manufacturer’s website as the process is no different to using an official BIOS. I can personally recommend NEVER flashing in Windows (SPI cables are a pain to make). DOS is best with AWDFLASH for Award BIOS files or AFUDOS for AMI. Some of the files listed include flashing tools; if they’re included you should use them. Lots of motherboards have tools built into the BIOS setup for flashing; ASUS for example has EZFlash which seems to work consistently.

    The option ROM isn't the most recent!

    I am aware that the RAID ROM included in most of these BIOS files is not the most up to date. I originally choose to stick with a version which I knew worked across all motherboards. Drop me a PM if you'd like to try a newer ROM (obviously putting yourself at a higher risk!) or if you have anything newer you'd like to share with the community.

    Please keep all your self-made BIOS files to yourself or use PM. This is only due to the risk they pose to people who just want their SSD(s) to work without having to buy a new motherboard. Once files have been tested we can safely list them with credit.

    The latest and greatest RAID ROM is v10.1.0.1008 (thanks to errevi). So far this has been confirmed working on both a skt1366 and a skt775 board (both AMI BIOS), although the only improvement appears to be a recovery option. The only official guidance from Intel I can find regarding which versions work can be found here.

    I flashed and now my PC won't boot!!

    If your PC refuses to boot or just beeps at you angrily like mine, switch off and clear the CMOS.

    Do these BIOS file include SL...?

    No. Please do not PM me or discuss anything regarding this subject.

    Please respect cd0nc is doing this as a gesture of good will to the forum, he is not employed by OCZ so when asking for files be nice, and make sure to say please

    Also ocz staff can not and will not give you support for these bios files, they are used at your own risk....

    On the whole cd0nc has helped many people, his files have proven safe to use.

    If you have one of cd0nc's bios files please post experiences in this thread, so others can be assured the files are ok, if you require a file modifying you can post in this thread also...

    If/when I update to a new future ASUS BIOS what will happen to the new RAID ROM assuming ASUS doesn't include a RAID ROM update in the new BIOS?

    Will a new BIOS reinstall the old RAID ROM or will it leave it as is?

    I doubt that Asus will provide proper support or proper updated bios for our chipsets. If they do update the Raid Rom driver its an important change to mention it.

    Thanks cd0nc for updating mine, Asus Rampage Extreme. It works perfectly so far and i could see the change on post because serial numbers of my SSD's are correct and so far the Raid0 did not failed to boot not even once. (Serials before they had some chinese letters in them)

    Hello cd0nc, I'm impressed by your efforts. Can you please modify the following BIOS for Asus IPIBL-LB 5.43. If possible, can you make two versions, one with the stable v8.5 and another with v10.1.0.1008?

    Thank you!

    hello SSD Users!
    I'm from Austria but I effort to speak english :-)

    I have installed a Vertex 2 with 120GB and v1.25 (factory defaults) in my HP computer with an ASUS IPIBL-LB Mobo. (the same like Regy)
    On this Board run's the Intel Matrix Storage ICH9R 7.5.0.1017 ROM, so i must reset the PC 2-3 times on cold start because my SSD is not in the Bios.
    After this the PC starts normally and fast.

    Will be there a update for the Sata Controller ROM up to 8.5 or so?
    I'm a little bit frustrated and want not buy a new Mainbaord.

    best regards from Austria

    EDIT:
    here the lastest Bios Update: KLICK

    Hi, I have been having issues with my SSD getting random blue screens. Would love to try the new ROM.

    http://members.iinet.net.au/~remlweb...-ASUS-0405.zip

    I have a Asus P6X58D-E, very similar to the premium version, so I am guessing that v10.1 ROM will work for me? Let me know. Thanks

    EDIT: I updated the Option ROM myself. Works quite well. For those who are interested, the 10.1 IRST ROM works fine with the P6X58D-E 405 bios. However it does NOT work with the 10.1.0.1008 driver. Windows will not load with it, just sits at the boot screen. Have to use the 9.6 driver. No BSOD for two days now tho. This IRST 10.1 driver issue seems to be unqiue to the P6X58D-E board.

    I would greatly appreciate an updated ROM for a Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS4. The current firmware (F5) can be found here.

    I'd also like to second the idea (from the original thread) of a tip jar. As I see it, you have a unique and _extremenly_ useful ability that benefits OCZ's customers (and thus indirectly, benefits OCZ). I expect the forum rules might not allow it, but maybe an exception could be made?!?! Moderator?!?!

    Just found the Beta F6D BIOS in the Gigabyte thread. I'm trying that one now, will report back soon.

    Worked perfectly; updated the RAID BIOS from v7.5.0.1017 to v8.9.1.1002, which cured my cold boot problem.

    FYI, Gigabyte beta BIOSes are here.

    Still think you should have a tip jar, cd0nc, FWIW.

    Happy Holidays Y'all!!!

    The BIOS for ASUS P5K Deluxe is not working. BIOS it self wont let you flash with that firmware.

    Here is a newer BIOS with ROM 8.7
