    Modify old BIOS to boot from NVMe drives?

    My P9X79 Pro motherboard was released on 1 November 2011 (it is 6 years old today).
    I modified the BIOS (added NVMe 1.2 support) and now can use the latest/fastest M.2 drives like Samsung M.2 SSD 960.

    Attachment 70246 Attachment 70247 Attachment 70248

    Someone can say that it (M.2) is not the most important thing in your PC - you need a new CPU or DDR4 memory...
    My answer is - NO!

    I'm using overclocked Intel Core i7-3930K (from Q4 2011) and Quad DDR3-2400 CL10.
    Please check my benchmarks - my 6 years old PC vs I7-8700K







    I do not see any progress!!!
    That is really interesting! How did you modify the BIOS to accept a PCIe-M.2 adapter card with an NVMe drive? I have an old ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 with X79 chipset, and wondered if I can get it to boot with an NVMe drive installed in one of those PCIe-M.2 adapter cards. The current BIOS was written long before NVMe drives even existed.

    The only thing I could do is revert back to saved point and lock out Update. I hope Asus can come up with a answer that works.

    MAYBE BEFORE ALL OF US GET HACKED THRU THE INTEL MELTDOWN ..

    Agreed the Beta is utterly useless on my Z97 Sabertooth MK1 one fan tells me I need a ASUS Fan Extension Card?? WTF?? Regardless I can't tie any fans to any sensors so defeats the whole purpose...Not too mention the whole programs hangs after you make any adjustments(the ones that don't do anything...)
    Right now all I can do is turn my fans(all of them)all the way up or all the way down...USELESS!!!

    Wrong - ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 has an X59 chipset and you don't have UEFI BIOS.
    I can't mod the BIOS for you, but you can boot from M.2 drive: check this tutorial

    This is off-topic...
    Anyone who needs a modified BIOS (with NVMe 1.2 support) please visit my Facebook profile and send me a PM with your motherboard model.





    It took me (one guy) only 3 hours to prepare modified BIOS with M.2 NVMe v1.2 support for all ASUS motherboards - SHAME ON YOU ASUS !!!

    I did not have time to put everything on my website, because I'm very busy building mining rigs :P

    Sorry, that's right. The P6T Deluxe has an X58 chipset. I know it uses legacy BIOS with MBR partitioned HD, running Win 7 right now. Still you say it can boot from an M.2 drive? Would that be the B-key or M-key? My understanding is that B-key m.2 use a SATA interface, but M-key use the PCIe interface. Correct me if I am wrong please.

    You can use ANY NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive!
    But you will be limited to PCIe 2.0 x4 speed = 16 Gbit/s = 2000 MB/s

    I looked at the tutorial about DUET: it looks like some kind of virtual UEFI boot within a legacy boot. It is pretty a complex but amazing procedure. My old P6T/X58 is for a Linux learning lab, but I might just chicken out and buy a new mobo But again, DUET looks very interesting.

    Same problem with a B250-PLUS

    I use AI Suite 3 to control 2 fans and GPU Tweak so my STRIX can control 2 other fans. Right now although I can't open AI Suite 3, the 2 fans controlled by my CPU temperature are ok, but the 2 fans controlled by my GPU aren't (they don't turn on).
