[OFFER] Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 updated BIOS with NVMe support

I have to offer moded BIOS for M5A97 EVO R2.0.
Features :
- Added NVMe Booting
- Fully Updated using UBU

Bios is semi-tested :
It was flashed and working - motherboard booted, without issues, to existing Windows installation on sata drive, later i was able to install fedora into NVMe and boot from NVMe directly, no further testing was done because i killed the mainboard in the meantime :frowning:

I flashed it through USB Flashback

Edit by Fernando: Thread title shortened

@markon - There is no BIOS here??

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS
Yes by know there is none, i don’t have right to post a file or link (due to the my low overall post count) so link had been removed :frowning:

Hi! Could you please share the link somehow?

Here is the mod for the ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 2603, for USB BFB ONLY, not EZ or Windows environment.

Hi @MeatWar

I thought clicking the reply button on the particular post was sufficient. Good to know I was wrong.

Thanks for the file!

@MeatWar Thank you for providing the modded bios for my Asus M5A97 Evo r2.0 motherboard with NVMe boot support.

Dear @MeatWar

I have flashed the moded BIOS which you provided and I can confirm that the computer boots after the update. I am yet to test the NVMe boot functionality. So, is there an option which needs to be changed in the BIOS for NVMe?

Thank you once again @MeatWar
