    What's up my friend? i hope you're in good form.

    F21e is still in beta, you can use the modded one if you want, but for stability i will recommand the Final F20 modded Bios, until there is a new finalized one (maybe never or a big suprise).


    Cheers

    Hey, you guys running the F21e BIOS on your GA-x79-UD3, can any of you comment on Vt-d functionality, is it still there/working for passing graphics card to a VM? I've hesitated on upgrading from F14 for this reason, I've never found an answer, thanks!

    Intel(R) RST/RSTe Drivers (newest: v14.0.0.1081/v4.1.0.1046 WHQL) (Read Part C)
    BIOS modules (PCI ROM, EFI and others) » AHCI & RAID ROM Modules (Read Part 2)

    For those using this board the best is to stick with 13.1.0.1026 ROM and 13.1.0.1058 driver.

    I've Re-Modded the Bios with 3.8.0.1029 ROM (use the 3.8.1029 RSTe driver).
    f21 mod2

    For the rest follow stasio's instruction on previous post.

    Ghostearth.

    PS:

    I've deleted F20 MOD BIOS on my mediafire account because of ROM 4.X Branches (post #4039)

    And Re-upload them with all correct stable Firmware and stuff (Same as F21e), but thought that this F21e mod bios is still in beta (IMHO, i will not use this beta or beta modded bios on a production machine).

    New F20 mod :

    f20 mod sandy rev2
    f20 mod Ivy rev2

    Ok Ghost, i have just flashed whit your f21e moded bios and i see my MEI firmware allready on 8.1.51.1471. right?

    Now i follow your instruction and i install --> 13.1.0.1026 ROM and 13.1.0.1058 driver.
    $
    right?

    EDIT: Ok then, i use 13.1.0.1058 driver and not the latest one. Right?

    For intel management engine interface can i use the latest one? 10.x.xxxxxx ?

    1 -Latest MEI Firmware is 8.1.52.1496, you'll have to flash it yourself after flashing to f21e modded bios.

    Intel ME Firmware v8.1.52.1496 (1.5MB)

    2- Yes 13.1.0.1058 AHCI driver is the best for this board (performance and stability).

    3-For the MEI driver, Uhm, of course you can install the latest Driver 10.0.30.1054, but the most suitable for the X79-UD3 is the 9.5.24.1790, and i always install only the driver directly via Device manager (manual have disk)
    Intel MEI Drivers v9.5.24.1790 WHQL
    Intel MEI Drivers v10.0.30.1054 WHQL

    Ghostearth.

    PS: Never install MEI Firmware 9.x Branches, it is not compatible.

    Both 3.x or 13.1 are Rst(e) driver the only difference is the 3.x is real entreprise edition with an additional SCSI filter driver. (apparently this is for analysing the usage of certain inquiry commands sent to SCSI devices).

    I've tested both and like i said before 13.1 give me better performance on Windows 7 x64, i don't tested on 8, 8.1 or 10.

    Rules.

    Use RST (v13.1.0.1058 WHQL is latest) when using AHCI, unless your device is in RAID mode then use RSTE (Enterprise).

    When you select RAID mode in BIOS for the X79 it actually changes the SATA Controller card DEV's ID where the RSTE (Enterprise) will be needed.
