    The BIOS listed below, from the first page:

    Updated with...
    Intel RAID for SATA 11.6.0.1702
    Realtek LAN 2.50
    Jmicron RAID SATA 1.07.28

    With this RAID ROM: http://www.smartredirect.de/redir/cl...M-Modules.html

    Taken from Section B.1 here: BIOS modules (PCI ROM, EFI and others) AHCI & RAID ROM Modules

    This is the same version ROM that is already in the BIOS listed on the first page, but has been modified to allow TRIM to pass through on RAID 0 configurations on X58 chipsets

    Thanks,

    Jason.
    Let me reiterate the above request (despite being months old).

    X58 boards are very usable to this day. If they're updated with true Raid support (TRIM capable), then they have "nowhere to go" and will stay on our pcs for years to come. I tried my hand with Bios modding but I ran on checksum errors of some sort. Given how limited my time is I expect that I will be able to produce a working modified bios, but it will take me quite some times (weeks certainly)...

    Given that there are people in here who already have a good grasp of the concept I would expect that modifying the above bios (to include Trim support) would be a relatively easy exercise. So if anyone sees this, I (and those still owning this old board) would be very grateful if the above request is granted.

    Thanks.

    MEI firmware versions 8.0xx are only designed for Z77/X79 chipsets and compatible driver versions are X, Y, & Z.
    MEI firmware versions 9.0xx are only designed for H81, H85, Z87, etc. chipsets, and compatible driver versions are X, Y, & Z.
    MEI firmware versions 9.1xx through 9.xxx are designed only for chipsets H97, Z97, etc. and compatible driver versions are X, Y, & Z.
    MEI firmware versions 9.5xx are only for X99 chipsets, and compatible driver versions are X, Y, & Z."
    Specific documentation of that nature.
    ...................................
    Edit:
    Also: which chipset boards get the 1.5M vs. the 5M varieties of MEI firmwares.
    ^^

    Based on what specific documentation?

    OK, now what about: "Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) Version 10.0.30.1060 (1.5M)"
    Description:

    Subject: Windows 20xx / 7/8 / 8.1 (32/64)

    Date & Version Drivers: 09/23 / 2014,10.0.30.1054

    To: Z68 / X79 / Z77 / Z87 / Z97 / H81 / H77 / H87 / H97 / X99 / ... (Firmware 1.5MB)

    Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) Version 10.0.30.1060 (1.5M)

    That site (where I've also seen your forum contributions) is absolutely clearly stating that firmware version 10.x is for Ivy Bridge and Haswell chipset boards.
    If you have a different opinion, then please provide some kind of a second source verification.

    No: that is what station-drivers.com published (seems to be in error).
    Still looking for some kind of official documentation about the Intel ME [driver] and MEI [firmware] that Stasio unfortunately doesn't seem to be interested in sharing.

    station-drivers.com publish correct.....driver (if not I'll jump first).
    Even now is posted 10.0.30.1072 WHQL driver.
    These drivers seem to support all Intel chipsets from 6-Series up.

    Btw,
    this has nothing with my objection that 9.5xx firmware is NOT for X99 chipsets....as you posted in #4064 post.
    Then,you answered me with driver version......

    For your info X99 chipsets using MEI firmware versions 9.1.xx.xxxx

    Is there a modded version of the newest beta bios of the Z97MX-Gaming 5 out? If not I would be thankful if someone could do that for me.
