This bios don’t have tpm 2.0 support only 1.2 and dont support HDD security Configuration (ATA/HDD password) and as a result the fast boot works quicker (3sec with six hard drives vs 8 sec with last bios version).

P2.16 with more fixes.

1)Fixed the code when the deep sleep usb s4,s5 enabled in bios (motherboard no longer stuck at shutdown).
2)The PECI operating frequency has been set to 750 KHz from default 1500 khz to fix the eratta from Intel. (platforms attempting to run peci above 1mhz may not behave as expected)
3)Provides selectable: @ option for echi hand off @ option for xchi hand off @ option for Link Training Timeout @ option for boot performance mode(4 new options)
4)Better compatibility with pci cards (CLKRUN# Logic from enabled to disable ,Serial IRQ Mode from quiet to continuous )
5)Changed native pcie for pch to disabled for better compatibility with pci bridge asm1083.
6)Changed default usb function from smart auto and usb 3.0 legacy enabled, to both auto (usb keyboard now works in safe mode)
7)Changed pcie clock gating from enabled to disabled(on asus it is disabled, better card detection because of eratta).
8)Downgrade haswell and broadwell microcode to 25 and 1E respectively ( because the microcode 28 for haswell is big and it destroys the pad before memory section. The space for the microcodes is limited in bios). The windows 10 and 11 provide the last microcode so its not a problem.
9)It has the latest intel gop (5.5.1034)
10)It has the latest intel nic orom and efi firmware
11)It has the latest raid for z97 platform orom and efi firmware (14.8.2.2397)

13)Bios has serial HDD security Configuration (ATA/HDD password) support.
14) Enabled com port by default and changed ps/2 support back to auto(revert this option back to fix a problem with an old ps/2 keyboard).
15) This bios and settings are compatible with xp ,win7,win10,win11 without the need to change any bios settings(best for users without experience).
