    Lsd, I found a bug.

    When I run @BIOS, DES2 automatically turned off.
    Would you like to check this issue?

    I believe that would be by design, if not it should be anyway!

    You don't want power saving features in action while @BIOS is open trying to flash the BIOS, so they probably made it do that on purpose.

    Windows flashing isn't ideal to begin with, so saving energy while trying to do so would be even worse. Are you saying that didn't happen before, or you just noticed only now with new BIOS?

    Either way, I'd suggest you don't use DES while using @BIOS to flash the BIOS, and I'd actually suggest you only use @BIOS to save a BIOS or as a last resort for flashing if that is all you can get to work.

    I know it isn't ideal to begin with.

    But when I try to Qflash in CMOS, DES2 is always working well. LED is alway on!

    By the way, did engineer find Pablo's issue exactly? I'm looking forward to revised F8 BIOS.

    The fix did seem to work for me ok,

    However its turned out the ssd had failed after 8 months (ssd reliable.... hmmmm not for me).

    Bought myself the M4 512g and all is good so far. (touch wood)

    Currently running the pulled F5 bios without issues.

    Thanks for remembring.

    When you flash from Qflash all the onboard LED's are on full blast, same as in DOS, this doesn't mean that feature is working.

    Like the phase LED's for example, they are all fully lit when in DOS/Qflash, and the phases are not fully loaded that's just how the LED's act while in those modes.

    I tested the issue, and could reproduce it on the older BIOSes, then could not on the fixed BIOSes, so yes I do believe they found and corrected the issue for sure!

    Lsd, I want to know the status of process.

    I'm waiting revised F8 BIOS, but too long.

    If you know something about that, please let me know.

    By the way, Intel will release Core i7 980 processor upcoming 26th.

    Is it need to additional BIOS update?
