    Hello! I just updated to this bios! It seems I cannot overclock and change voltage settings in the BIOS (pressing enter or double clicking won't do anything)? Can you please help me.

    Also I can't flash the firmware it says

    "Error 8193: Intel (R) ME Interface : Cannot locate ME device driver"

    and when I use MeInfoWin64 (through cmd (admin mode) and through the .bat file (admin mode)) it says

    "Error 9458: Communication error between application and Intel(R) ME module (FW Update client)

    Error 9459: Internal error (Could not determine FW features information)"

    but I managed to open it when I restarted

    GIGABYTE Modified Bios-haha-png

    But I can't do it again anymore, it says the same error. Thanks!

    NOTE:

    I updated using DOS since I came from F12.

    Which OS and CPU...?
    As you came from AWARD to UEFI BIOS (in which some overclock functions didn't works),
    try also other UEFI BIOS's for your board, posted here:

    You can use Q-Flash now.

    Edit:
    Update your MEI driver also....latest is 10.x.xx.xxxx

    Windows 10 Technical Preview, i5 2500k. I needed to change bios to the latest one after changing CPU since the previous ones was giving me boot loops.

    Yep, I updated to the latest MEI driver by installing XTU. I can't run the MEInfo again, giving me the same errors.

    Is it really needed to flash the ME firmware after using your modded U1L? Also can't we really use overclock functions (even change voltage) with UEFI ones?

    In Windows 10 Technical Preview update ME firmware didn't work and ...yea is not need to update.
    For Z86 UEFI BIOS overclock functions,hope some other users we tell more then me....

    Station-drivers needs to improve their methodology. And as far as ME/MEI specifically: their best policy would seem to be: to not publish such undocumented MEI firmware "leakages" at all, and publicly recommend reliance on what the official manufacturer bios releases provide. Or at the least: only pass on "leaks" that include some kind of minimal documentation: "this firmware is for these specific chipsets: X, Y & Z" type of description. For MEI drivers: "this driver is for use with these specific chipset type of motherboards: A, B, & C". Or even simply: "We found these files at an undisclosed IP address. We don't know anything more than what you see inside the compressed file. Our best guess is that this firmware is designed for unreleased mobile chipsets with code names "Tamarand" & "Bluefield" (or whatever)". But simply passing on for public consumption, items that they know they don't know anything about is bad policy.
    If they have to write their own text file as their own kind of documentation, then go ahead and do that. If they need to then translate from French to English or other languages, then go ahead and do that.
    But they should not, in my opinion, be publishing on their web site such completely undocumented files.

    Stasio likes to post there practically on a daily basis, but never wants to help correct that web site's (what I consider as) bad behavior.
    I already told you how they occur. Noone is hacking anything, don't be silly. Intel creates hardware,firmware,tools & documentation. The various manufacturers (OEMs) receive the hardware to built their own systems. The software/firmware is updated regularly so it makes sense for there to be a place where these packages can be downloaded. Each OEM has certain credentials (username, password etc). Using these, they login to the Intel site where newer drivers,firmware,tools & documentation is located. All these come in one package. They use tools,documentation+firmware to update the BIOS of their systems and release the Drivers on their websites for people to manually download and update. They should upload just the drivers. Sometimes though they upload the whole package which includes the tools,documentation & firmware as well. Simple as that.

    Noone has to (must) explain to you how these work. Not me, not Stasio, not Station-Drivers. It's you who decide what to download and how to use it. It's your responsibility if you make any mistake while performing something meant for OEMs to do. Whether someone wants to help you by providing knowledge which comes from experience, confidential documentation etc, it's entirely up to him/her. Instead of asking & asking, read & read what you can find online from people who care to explain such things to others. This thread will explain to you what you seek:

    @ plutomaniac: I'm beginning to think that many of these Intel "leaked" ME firmwares were never intended by Intel for public release.
    They were, in my opinion, only meant for board manufacturer's consideration to be included in their official bios releases; not for end-users.
    With station-drivers.com lazy & undocumented postings, it's far too easy for someone "out there on the inter-tubes" to see an ME firmware that's only vaguely described, and perform a seemingly appropriate ME firmware upgrade. But only to later discover (due to poor documentation on station-drivers.com) that their system is not running the appropriate ME firmware.
    You & Stasio may have your opinions, but mine is the correct one.

    Hi Guys.

    I'm fixing up some of my older machines and was hoping for some info/help.
    Anyway, does anyone know of a modified and updated BIOS for the old GA-EP45-DQ6? It has the ICH10R chipset so I was hoping for a new intel rom with trim and >2Tb support.

    Any info would be awesome.
