great helping forum :slight_smile:

Wot problems do u got… the mod is easy to do, MMtool or UEFItool methods.
Share it here and some one will check it for u before the flashing.

Thank you !
first question is, should I wait tomorrow to see what driver this card uses
if you have taken a look at the specs of this card, this card is not some shitty bifurcation card
the card manages all the M.2’s onboard and build the raid I wish there
So I wonder if a regular NMVMe driver is required …

CPU4 Slot 2 (Alternative Slot4) is the recommend for the HighPoint SSD7104.
The card itself has BI and its manage doesnt care about the C602 chipset BI, the only point here that matters is available CPU lanes to it, if it needs drivers, only in OS.
Never used this card and dont know wot OPTION ROM is present that can be loaded by ur default bios (PCI ROM Priority) upon boot, so is there a need of a NVMe mod in ur case?
Better test available features and RAID setup in the HP (RAID in chipset primary only cares about SATA devices setup, does the chipset sees any other than SATA…!!!) before flash any NVMe mod.
The NVMe mod presented by Fernando, is a simple DXE EFI driver that its loaded upon standard OS configurations setup, not visible in BIOS (PATA device or boot manager entry) until it has a valid OS on it.
Only a user with same card can give more details/info upon setting up RAID on older boards/chipset.


It says in the specs: "Windows Boot RAID: Not supported"?

You have a legacy boot system and wish to get an UEFI non-RAID module inserted into your firmware?

this is strange, thats what it says yes

now, before driver install:


So, the idea is to get the OS win 10 on it of course and my music software
but also have the max speed

after creating the raid in the Highpoint interface:

from your point of view, is there a difference in having the card in slot one or 3 ?

now its like this:

reason was having it in first for boot previously
worth swapping to try ?

I just install win 10 by UEFI or is there a better option with custom Bios ?
sorry for so many questions

I swapped them
got 6700 / 6700 speeds

I’ll buy also the HighPoint SSD7505 as that one is supposed to boot from raid

I would still be interested in getting my bios fully updated
I see donate buttons everywhere I go on this quite forum but none of those who published the buttons needs money
I can’t affort doing something wrong and test, I use this machine evry day for work, not for playing stupid games and wank of on youporn eating chips
so if I would get a offer we might be able to agree

If u cant afford stay put, bc no one can assure u a zero tolerance bios mod that can break ur or any other system.
Thats Bios MOD always with risks and has nothing to do with “stupid” games or wotever.
I wouldn’t risk it if it was my only and main work machine.

I understand didn’t mean being mean
thank you anyway

I just hired a pro on freelancer for 180$
pro service on their risk

I will post the bios here as I am a share person, and that way you guys can check if correctly done ok ?

Sry… i really…really, have no comments on that PRO service and never will. Good luck, OverNout.

What changes/ updates did you negotiate/ expect?

everything from microcode to drivers to NVMe and custom boot

Pro service is engineer level.

That’s OK, nobody is required on this world, always remember. we are nothing
if you disappear from this forum tomorrow, someone else will replace you. people will talk about you for less than a year.
then, after that, it will be like you have never existed.
This is my philosophy, that is why I am successful in life, happy and share with nice people

other members here will probably enjoy my share. passionate members

Thank you for sharing ur wisdom and remind us that we r "bugs" just passing through.
Thank you for sharing with us ur way of life and ur huge success in sharing with others, im sure whoever needs it will appreciate it from u.
As u may not understand… no one likes to be in the position of sharing a bios mod that can wreck other person system, specially to unskilled regular users.

Would be interesting to see what you were able to get changed in your bios and what solution for NVME boot this engineer did choose!

yes but this one will be made by a pro
might help someone
