    Default 890FX Deluxe4 will not boot USB 3.0 ADATA S102 flash drive

    I use my 890FX Deluxe4 as a media server because it has so many SATA ports. The O/S is unRAID 5.0 beta6a. The O/S boots off of a flash drive. I have been using an older 1 GB USB 2.0 flash drive with no problems. It will boot using any of the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports. When I tried a newer ADATA S102 8G USB 3.0 flash drive, it will not boot. I tried F11 and my 890FX Deluxe4 does not recognize it as being bootable. It does appear to read it after I boot using my old flash drive. I tried the ADATA flash drive in my Dell Latitude E6300 (usb 2.0) and it boots fine. The ADATA is suppose to work in USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Before OS, port drivers are not loaded; BIOS procedure is responsible for recognizing the flash drive and boot from it. Is there newer bios versions for your board? Or maybe a firmware update be effective?
    I have 890GX which has NEC D720200 USB 3.0 chip, but unfortunately no USB 3.0 flash to test! Someone with both (MB and flash) in hand please make a favor of test.

    I had checked ASRock's site and 1.50 from 11/26/2010 is the latest for the 890FX Deluxe4. I had also searched for a beta firmware but could not find one for this motherboard.

    From this forum (firmware and driver):
    NEC/RENESAS USB3 Controller

    I haven't tested though myself!

    Installed Windows Vista x64 on a spare HD so I could install the driver/firmware. It says "Plural host controllers detected". I tried Disabling one of them in Device Manager. Same error message. Tried Disabling USB 3.0 in bios, it did not find the controller. Tried Disabling USB Legacy support in bios, same "Plural host controllers detected". I found some info on a Russian site listed here:
    Russian USB 3.0 info

    This is translated by Google:

    At random, tried everything decided to try to set the path to the firmware, copy the folder 64 in the root of drive C, then from the command line, run proshivalschik W200FW23
    with keys / srom 4 / write C: / 64/F302508.mem C: / 64/cfg.ini/address 02-00-00 (this is the address of my first controller USB 3.0) and everything was flashing, and then I repeated the procedure for second controller with address 03-00-00, rebutnul comp, went to the USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility and looked at the firmware version, it changed to 302 in May , but the latter has been 3.0.2.7.0.8, so I've found the one that downloaded from here: www.station-drivers.com/page/nec.htm unzipped into a folder, took out UPDATE.mem (this is the firmware the latest version) and copied it to the C drive in folder 64 and repeated the firmware on both heads again, reboot again - -> USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility and voila, the 3027 firmware anywhere. Here are just a poser with a complete shutdown companies remained, yusbishniki did not plow when you first start, but after reboot, probably all a matter of bios version ...


    I trying to interpret. I extracted the F302708FWUP1.exe and there is a program named W200FWUP_x64.exe, w200fwup.ini, Update.mem.

    It should be so:
    W200FW23.exe___/srom___4___/write___C:/64/F302508.mem___C:/64/cfg.ini___/address___02-00-00
    or:
    W200FW23.exe___/srom___4___/write___C:/64/UPDATE.mem___C:/64/cfg.ini___/address___02-00-00
    (replace underlines with spaces)

    I emailed ASRock support and they said "Unfortunately ASrock does not have driver nor support for Any Linux OS.". I replied with I think it is a bios issue since I cannot boot a USB 3.0 flash drive. I have not heard back from ASRock. I also emailed NEC and did not hear back from them also.

    Wonder what motherboard he was using and where did he find the address 02-00-00? What is SROM 4? Would my address be f9-ef-e0 and f9-ff-e0 based off the info below?

    This is my PCI info from Linux:
