Thread: i7 & x58 boot times

    You shouldn't need to install a new driver, just flash to the latest bios for your motherboard and it should hopefully be a newer ahci version.

    If not the latest beta should be, and if still not you could modify the latest to have a newer version ahci and raid rom, but thats strongly not recommended.

    I have just downloaded beta f9d and saved to file but @bois update wont "update bois from file"

    Can not load ROM image from BIN file. Maybe BIN size not match.

    What else can i do to update to version F9D ?

    It's strongly suggested by many on this forum, including our resident moderator Lsdmeasap that one avoids using @BIOS. To flash, use QFlash. Load the BIOS file onto a USB stick, boot and enter the BIOS. Hit the relevant [F] button to enter QFlash and follow the prompts. Note that Legacy USB Storage Detect must be enabled in the BIOS to flash from USB.

    As qwertylesh rightly says, hopefully the latest beta will have an updated version of the AHCI BIOS. If not, then I personally would not worry. How long it takes to clear the BIOS/AHCI detection is in no way a measure of PC performance. The delay is simply because of BIOS and AHCI ROMdetection and diagnostic routines that do not engage any higher level functions of the PC. You could runa slow AHCI on IBM's Deep Blue and it wiould take just as long Certainly not worth buying another Mobo over.

    If it is annoying you, consider using Hybernate or S3 Sleep, maybe even Hybridsleep (S4) if the board supports it.

    Also qwertylesh was on the money RE drivers. No re-install or driver update is needed. AHCI RoM is part of the low level detection and diagnostic routines and mobo to OS hand-off. Windows has no need for drivers or a reinstall regarding its change.
