Perhaps your older driver doesn't have this issue. I have tried testing @ complete stock BIOS with optimized defaults loaded with the same issue.

    It doesn't really matter a whole lot since Quick Boot doesn't really quicken the pace for me anyways but thanks for the testing!

    P.S, LSD F10J bios still doesn't have the option to control a system fan in the "PC Health Status" bios menu, it only has the cpus. :(


    Just to update again, for some wierd reason, after imaging back to Windows 7 about 5 minutes ago, I loaded up and sure enough I had no internet connection. Looked in Connection Settings and one of my NIC's was missing!

    Seems that the "bug" you discovered isn't just isolated to XP but is a BIOS problem again. I rebooted several times, forced a check for new Hardware, disabled the NIC's, booted, shut down then re-enabled them to see if that would revive the dead port but it didn't sadly. Upon flashing back to official F9 (only BIOS I have at hand) my NIC's were both back and working perfectly.

    I would from this testing conclude it is another bug in the F10 QuickBoot BIOS's. Probably as you say, down to QuickBoot (which isn't really that "quick").

    Just to add, in F10i, after 5 boots, it no longer bothered verifying DMI Pool Data. In F10j it does, no matter how many clean boots the PC experiences, making QuickBoot almost pointless. When it checks DMI Pool (which it skipped in F10i) it does so right after the AHCI ROM screen on a black screen with the message on its own in the top left.

    Lsdmeasap: I hope you get to read this mate. If possible could you offer any input to these strange problems. I thought seeing as you have an X58 you may have more experience with QuickBoot (if your board has it that is). Thanks.

    quick boot really is a moot thing so far.
    Other than NOT seeing dmi pooling table theres still a delay anyway.
    well here
    have tried a few of the 10's bios as well
    bios 10f is pretty fair.
    I have been using bios f9 last few hours because it was very good previously and am back there for now.
    Thou 10f is fair game here.
    the newest bios for 10i,g has/had some issues still here.
    Strangely with my situation,YMMV.. ram latencies and activation of vista.
    Hopefully they can get it sorted out eventually, thou this 'board will be reaching the end of its sales life cycle if it hasn't all ready due to its platform.

    Very wierd on the subject of latencies. Can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong there. Although it seems confined to your config, obviously if all other BIOS work just fine then F10i/j are definitely to blame. I think the BIOS programmers are having a bad couple of days.

    I'm not thrilled with QuickBoot either, as in I don't think it's a must have. It is nice that Gigabyte are trying to improve our now defunct Socket 775 boards though, so I thank them for that.

    I'm going to try and find F10e if I can. that BIOS seemed the best of the F10 bunch as F10f upward all needed me to tweak my MCH Ref down even more to be stable. The only annoyance with using F9 final is that it has AHCI 1.07, which is a bit slow to detect drives, by maybe 4-5 seconds. As everyone knows, a couple of seconds when waiting for a PC to boot can seem like a lifetime.

    Yes that latencies thing was a knockout.

    As far as 10 bios I can't disagree with you there.
    10e was good.
    it is available in the previous bios lists for the board http://forums.tweaktown.com/277052-post204.html
    I had it on today and it worked good.
    In the end scheme of things after I play with 9(want to research it a bit here) I may well go 10e or 10f.

    Thanks for reminding me of the link to get F10e. I'll flash to it soon.

    Thanks for that testing, glad I'm not the only one with NICs that stealthily ninja their way out of my OS.

    According to Andressergio XtremeSystems Forums - View Single Post - ** Official ** Gigabyte UD3 P45 Series -- EP45-UD3 / EP45-UD3R / EP45-UD3P along with some others they say if you want the lowest latencies in everest etc. you want to use F10B.

    Ditto on that old AHCI rom being annoying to use. I'll never use them thar old bios's due to that, too spoiled with the new ones (and the fact that I've got more ram detected in XP with F10F+)

    That's a useful bit of info. Might get a hold of F10B then if it has the 1.20E AHCI ROM (which I'm almost sure it does).

    The improved latencies sounds like a nice little bonus too. Cheers!

    I just tried to download and extract GA-EX58-UD3R (1.6) - FD8 bios only to have Winzip (and WinRar) say that the archive is corrupt.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    Did it previously have system fan control? Some models do not offer this. If yours used to please let me know what model, then what BIOS used to have it and now which does not (Just to remind me)

    Next time I speak with Colin I will let him know about these quickboot issues, but of course you guys should expect this for a few more versions anyway with this being "New Tech" for Gigabyte.

    Send me a PM, I can fix you up with proper F9 if you like

    Extracts fine here, please try re-downloading it. If you still have issues let me know and I can upload it for you to some other site. If you want me to do that, please tell me which site you would prefer (If it matters)
