    Question Re: Gigabyte Latest BIOS

    Hi stasio,

    I see that you also have the GA-EP45-UD3P rev1.0. I have the same board and currently running on F6. Everything is working properly for me except sleeping which actually shut windows 7 down and the slow boot up due to AHCI 1.07. Are there any disadvantages in upgrading to F13f? Does it also replace my backup bios like some people have complained?

    Best Regards...

    Latest bios for the ep45-ud3p rev 1.0-1.1 is F10f. F10e will update the back up bios due to a update in q-flash. I would think going from F6 to F10f would update the back up bios. I would suggest either updating to F9 the latest official bios or F10e. If you have never flashed the bios before please read the stickie about flashing bios with q-flash.

    I have an ep45-ds5 board and I just upgraded from the f12 bios to the new f13a one, and I'm getting some strange and garbled text where the HPET option used to be.





    I hope it's fixed on some future release. everything else works fine, though. The AHCI 1.20 is a nice addition.

    Could someone please point the BIOS engineers to this Microsoft whitepaper please:
    Firmware Corruption of Memory During Sleep Transitions

    It details the HAL errors that occur during sleep transitions, and mentions that it is up to the BIOS/Firmware engineers to fix

    During Windows development, we observed some systems that corrupt the lowest 1*MB of physical memory during a sleep transition. We traced the memory corruption to code defects in platform firmware. Because of the pervasiveness of the problem in the industry and the desire for reliable sleep transitions, Windows no longer stores operating system code and data in the lowest 1*MB of physical memory.
    To help detect and prevent this firmware code defect, Windows*7 and Windows Server*2008 R2 automatically checksum the contents of the lowest 1*MB of physical memory and log an error event to the system event channel if the memory is corrupted. The event enables system manufacturers and firmware developers to identify the code defect and develop updated firmware. This helps to ensure that future versions of Windows can use all available physical memory for user applications and experiences.
    This paper describes the diagnostic event for detecting firmware corruption of memory across sleep transitions. System manufacturers who find this event on their systems must partner with the platform firmware developer to develop updated firmware that resolves the issue. End users who find this event on their system should check with the system manufacturer for updated firmware.
    < SNIP >
    Resolution Steps
    System manufacturers or firmware developers must investigate and resolve corruption across a sleep transition. In many cases, the resolution of the issue requires a more recent BIOS update for the platform.
    System manufacturers should cycle all new Windows-based platforms through sleep transitions and check for the HAL event. If the HAL detects and logs the event, engage the firmware developer to resolve the issue.
    Firmware developers can use the event details, including the number of corrupted pages and the first corrupted page, to determine the exact code defect that caused the memory corruption.
    Thanks in advance

    Yeah,BIOS F13a for GA-EP45-DS5 is a bit buggy,GBT already know.

    Has anyone found anything new in the EP45-DS3 F10a BIOS? I can't find a changelog anywhere.
