    all i did was swap the raid rom for the 8.8.0.1009 version
    exelent !

    it worked just fine (i was able to use qflash, something i couldnt do even with the default 7b :p

    would it be too much to ask you to add this:
    ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/jmb36x/O..._raid_card.zip

    to the bios you just moded for me ? :p

    i tried again, but i just end up with an invalid biod file when i add stuff (i found some guides that said to first remove the rom you wanted to replace, using the release option, and others tu just replace, both methods end up bad for me :( )

    pd: one of the guides said to always use the same driver version as the raid bios.. is that true ? i had the raid bios 8.0.0.something for a LONG time, with the 8.8.0.1009 drivers, and now i have the 8.9.0.1023... does that mean that there is a raid bios with that version number available ?

    i can try, but not sure it will work.
    the bin files are slightly different sizes and not sure if it may need customizing by GB.

    here you go, hope it works

    works just fine !!

    could you pm me the procedure you follow to do this things ? and a download location for the cbrom.exe you are using ? (maybe mine is broken somehow ?)

    also, do you use a 32 bit windows ? maybe using windows xp in a virtual machine is what is causing my problems ?

    and.. i dont want to be a pushover, but:

    Download Intel Desktop Board DX58SO Bios 4158 Driver for Windows 9X/ME/NT/2K/XP/2003/Vista/XP X64/2008 - Softpedia

    there it says that the bios that can be downloaded there, has the 8.9.0.1023 raid bios, if you can put it into the last bios you moded for me, i will gladly test it xD

    wow

    i have cbrom215, and that doesnt want to work on windows 7 x64.

    with cbrom215 at least (i would guess that an older version would be the same?)

    cbrom.exe "bios names" /pci extract

    works for extracting

    pd: i think i understand now, i downloaded the file, and its a lot of files, none of which seem like the bios file :P

    Just put the X58 extreme f8f bios on my computer and all seemed ok at first but within a half an hour lota of problems. Ran memtest 86+ and because I have 3 computers on a kvm switch went to another computer. Last time I checked it was on test 7 no errors. Went away again then the computer shut off by itself. Ok... so restarted and went into OS (win 7 RC x64) and after it booted I clicked the firefox icon the computer froze then shut off. Restarted and went into bios to change a few settings, froze in bios, then shut off. Tried numeros things still freezing and shutoff. No bsod's. Flashed back to F7 havnt had a problem since. Definatly a problem with that bios (at least for me). Interesting to see if any one else has had problems as well.

    yeah, i know how to extract, replace etc, but cbrom, mmtool and other apps i have don't work with intel bio files :(
    i don't think i've seen anyone modding intel ones

    yeah, i was about to do a 2nd edit, this time saying i had googled arround a little, and there was no known tool for extracting from the .bio file in the package :(

    edit: i found a newer (1.7.04) jmicron rom when searching (i didnt want to give up, but i have now) for the latest raid bios, or a way to extract it from the intel bios, and, using cbrom195 i was able to mod the bios correctly XD

    edit2: it worked, but i had to revert to the one you made with 1.7.00 cause there were roms for 3 diferent controllers (mine being 2363, or so i think), with the "correct" one, in ahci mode, i had no DVDRW. With the other 2, i had, in one, no hdd, and in the other, nothing at all :P

    @nforce, any particular bios, or just F7 official?
    and yes the extreme bios can be flashed to the ud5 if you use spiflash in dos
    @GHz , Yes the F7 official BIOS , I also did try the extreme F8f bios and ran into the same Overclocking issues , hence reverted back to official F7 BIOS. F7 BIOS + The new AHCI rom will be the best combination for me !
