    Default Updating BIOS OROMs on my GA-X79-UP4

    Hi folks,

    I'm here to request some help or advice regarding the options available when updating OROMs. I have done some probing into my current BIOS (F3P) with Aptio MMTool, below is what I found:

    Can you help me verify the versions please? Or tell me how I can do this myself?

    Marvel 88SE91xx Adapter - BIOS Version .1.0.1.0025 - 1b4b,9192
    Appears current

    Intel (R) RAID for SATA - v10.0.0.1032 - 8086,282a
    Probably Intel RST RAID ROM? Possibly superseded by v11.2.0.1527?

    Intel LAN ROM v1.3.72.IBA GE Slot 0000 v1372 - 8086,1502
    Probably Intel LAN ROM? Possibly superseded by v1.5.13?

    Intel RST(e) RAID for SATA - v11.6.0.1702 - 8086,2822
    Superseded by v12.6.0.1867

    Intel RSTe RAID ROM - v3.5.0.1005 - 8086,
    Superseded by v3.6.0.1023

    Thanks all.

    Hi,

    8086,282a can be deleted cause it's useless... you can read lastest ROM in my X79-UP4 F3u mod... and Stasio maintains a great thread with drivers and ROM updated.

    Have fun with modding

    Thanks,

    Well your modified bios certainly looks to be the way forward! Do you happen to know if I can update the Intel Management Engine Firmware? To Intel® Management Engine Interface(MEI) 9.0.13.1402 (Firmware) for example?

    Intel ME Firmware 9**** is only for 8 series (Z87), ME firmware 8.1.40.1416 is for 7 series (X79, Z77...) : How to .

    Thanks virtualfred,

    I forgot to ask you, what about the GBE update and MEI in your bios? With the GBE do I have to edit the OROM for my MAC ID?

    As I understand it the Gigabyte flasher won't write these regions of the bios. What is the recommended procedure for flashing? Since I need current MEI drivers also, is that the 8.x series or 9.x, does it have to correspond to the F/W version?

    You have to follow Amurtigress's How to to update GBe with MAC adress insertion... after this you'll can apply ME firmware update.
    Yes you can use Management Engine Interface 9.5.10.* with ME firmware 8.1.40.1416.
