[solved] help modding uefi bios with [x79] or [C602] Chipset lga2011 - all need to know for using UBU with sabertooth x79

i read the “help” [[Tool Guide+News] “UEFI BIOS Updater” (UBU)] while using the tool but i find that the info is not very clear for the C602 chipset : what rom are the best ? i say “are” for the trim and non trim versions
[ same question for the x79 8"]

here is the opening screen :

reading the topic :
AHCI & RAID ROM Modules
2. Intel RSTe RAID ROMs (only for Intel X79/X99 chipsets running in RSTe mode):

i see nothing about c602 and my board has an sas

reading the topic about the drivers :
Which are the “best” Intel AHCI/RAID drivers?

that talks about the c600 …

Intel RST(e) drivers v13.1.0.1058 WHQL dated 05/28/2014
Recommended for Intel 7-Series Chipset Desktop systems and for X79/X99 Chipset systems, usable with all Windows Operating Systems from Win7 (32/64bit) up.
Best matching Intel RAID ROM resp. EFI “RaidDriver” BIOS modules: v13.1.0.2126

Download links: Look >here<.

Comments:

These are the latest Intel AHCI/RAID drivers, which natively do fully support 7-Series. Additionally these drivers do support C600/C600+ Series Chipsets (only in AHCI mode unless having set the BIOS to “RST” mode).
Like the later released v13.2.4.1000 ones these Intel RST(e) drivers v13.1.0.1058 are well developed and have a quite similar performance and stability.
Contrary to the “classical” Intel RST drivers the RST(e) drivers have an additional SCSI filter driver named iaStorF.sys.
“TRIM in RAID0” is supported (Precondition: An actual Intel RAID ROM or EFI “RaidDriver” from v11 up is present within the BIOS).

@grml4d :
The Intel C602 Chipset belongs to the Intel C600+ Chipset Series like the X99 Chipset. So you can use the same Intel AHCI/RAID drivers and Intel RAID EFI/OROM modules as I have recommended for X99 Chipsets.
Correction: The Intel C602 Chipset belongs to the Intel C600 Series Chipsets like the X79 Chipset. So you can use the same Intel AHCI/RAID drivers and Intel RAID EFI/OROM modules as I have recommended for X79 Chipsets.

No, you have to do it manually by using the matching Intel ME FirmwareUpdate Utility. For details please look into the start post of >this< thread.

for the x79 : sata efi/orom with trim : 12.9.0.2006 or the v13.1.0.2126
plus the advised OROM IRSTe RAID for SATA - 3.8.0.1029

for the c602 : sata efi/orom with trim : 14.8.2.2397
plus the advised v4.5.0.1012 SATA and sSATA/v4.3.0.1018 SCU for x99 when i used 13.1 and 13.2 firmware

for lan : automatic

for cpu : normal and es cpus

do i have to reflash the updated me firmware after a bios flash ?
i mean that i already updated the me firmware month ago , i reuse UBU because it has rom updates .

here is full log for x79:

i checked the cpu microcode …i feel it still does not work with the sabertooth x79 and the SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DAi-O .
with the x79 there are duplicates and with the other some cpus are removed …

here are two screen capture



today i “played” a little with MCE . thinking it would solve my troubles with the microcode updates…
but it added some…

i used MCE with the original bios and the one made by ubu
for the x79 board MCE_DB_INTEL.txt

the microcodes in the x79 and the c602 are having the same names and the same size . both are lga 2011 but the x79 should contain the firmware of the i7 and some of the xeons while the c602 should only have xeons . so the size and numbers of files should be different …No ?

i had a look in the folders for the microcodes and found that all others cpu than the lga 2011 have individual files made by a tool like MCE , may be the bugs come from that files …
i think @plutomaniac should update its MCE a bit so it would use the Linux databases made to update the cpu firmware after boot
here are few good links about that , plus a driver from vmware to update the microcode of the cpu under windows
https://wiki.debian.org/Microcode
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/microcode
with links to these page having “databases” for amd & intel products
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?name=intel-ucode
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?name=linux-firmware
here is the intel 's database : https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloa…e-Data-File?v=t

the driver : https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vmware-cp…er#instructions

then MCE would be able to get the correct files to update the bios and its microcodes
[ i do not say UBU does not work correctly , i search to be sure about it ]

As the name indicates, MCE only extracts. It does not update and will not update in the future either. Obviously it extracts 5 files because the list you showed has only 5 unique lines (microcodes), everything else are duplicates.

so you think that both bios are correct ?
how can i check the list of cpus supported by these bios ?
i hope you have plans to create a tool that uses databases from intel and debian ;’]

There are no other microcode databases, just some containers from Intel and AMD which can be extracted via MCE with -cont parameter. That’s all MCE does, extraction. And yes it does support extraction of Intel/AMD containers in text or binary form.

i searched with google about the cpu updates… it showed old first message i posted last year :

the log shows the same updates and that bios was “bad-flash” so i made one without cpu update that still works ;’]

[Discussion] UBU Tool related Questions, Reports and Suggestions (162)

google also offered a link :
https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.ph…VBE-driver-pack

that topic has “an up to date” BIOS …
"Updated BIOS with:
-CPU MicroCode IvyBridge-E and SandyBridge-E 6E4-428, 6E2-20D, 6D7-710, 6D6-619, 6D5-513"

so i opened the bios made by ubu on the x79 and the moded r4be , plus opened ubu with that bios :
here is a picture



that is clear the r4be has latest microcode …but UBU does not see them…and offers to update the cpu microcode…

here is the UBU windows text :

now it is certain that UBU has a bug with LGA2011 …

@Fernando @plutomaniac @SoniX @CodeRush i do a big Call because of bugs i found above
i had a closer look at files i extrated with MCE , the bios made by supermicro has all microcodes up to date [ i compared with the bios of the evga sr-x ]
the bios of the r4be either , the sabertooth has the same microcode definition files but all are out-dated

so my objective is to inject the microcodes of the r4be… i tried with the file selection of UBU but the software freezed… i also tried with the mmtool of UBU : i deleted all files and added the files in vol 03 04 05 06
when i saved the file then a mbox saying the info [ of capsule] were lost
i wonder if i can use it ?
or i would prefer to make UBU replace files…but instead of selecting a file i would prefer a folder

@grml4d :
Why didn’t you post your questions/problems regarding the UBU tool into >this< already existing thread?
This way you may have better chances, that SoniX and the other BIOS Gurus (I personally do not belong to that group) will read your reports and give you an answer.

in 2016 …i had already reported the bug i re-found with latest version… but it passed without being seen [ if you have time to read my previous post talking about my first posts on ubu…
i would be pleased if you answered my questions … latest being : how can i replace the microcode files by the one from bios r4be that i have extracted with MCE ?
i search the solution …thanks even if you can not give a solution…

Since I am not an expert regarding the CPU Microcode update, I cannot answer this question.
The UBU tool offers a big variety of different Microcodes for an automaticly done update, but not the replacement of certain microcodes by other codes, which had been extracted from any other BIOS. You probably have to do it manually by using a tool like CodeRush’s UEFITool.



If you use Win10 or Win8 then it probably has microcode update installed from WU. Have you checked version of microcode update from Windows?

i found this update when reading some forums…but it is not updated and old…i like the driver from vmware , it is more easy to update it and it says what it does :]
i used it on two pc : the sabertooth x79 with its microcodes and a hp touchsmart 600-1160 …both were not needing it ;’]
i am very happy with my new bios …and i think i found why some have it impossible to start usb bios auto flashing
: it only works when pc is in quick-boot mode and with an usb key that is not power-hungry
to load optimized default setting in bios before flashing makes all things right

for the c602 i think the bios can be unplug …so i am making my mind if i will ask supermicro to flash the bios in a chipset …
as there is no edition of microcode , i want to do it …
let us hope that bios updating will become easier soon…

Updating of BIOS modules has never been as easy as today (since the publication of the UBU tool).

bios modding is very old , at the time of pentium 2 - 3 it started to be popular …UBU is very good but from what i know works like softwares from the beginning . the guid system is very good for bios modding and prevents errors in rom choice :] that is the main thing of UBU to have a stock of rom : the good thing of this tool . sadly , for CPU microcodes , they use hand made files […while there are very good officials “databases” available for free…] , and even when choice is wisely “made by hand” and the bios file created with bios-maker AMI : i mean MMTOOL [ like i tried with the sabertooth ] that can break motherboards…[ there should exist rules for microcodes , one of them being the reason why they are duplicated ] so UBU stays a dangerous tool :] . once again we fallback on the back of those that have to update BIOS…and that are really not “hard worker” …
BIOS is the final touch of mobo and increase performances with less wastes of electricity …
as “Coder-Rousky” aka Coderush now works to create bios , may be some new tools will come and make UBU error free .
for easy handling of bios , motherboards designers could switch to a new dual system with the use of SD*C cards for rescue/backup/updated bios .
these cards are very small , very cheap with very large size [ 30 euros for 64 Go… while bios is only 8 or 16 Mo…] , plus can be wrote on any usb port using a little adapter …

for the bios solution of asus bios-usb-flashback , at end of video at this link : http://event.asus.com/2012/mb/USB_BIOS_Flashback_GUIDE/ the guy talks about a security … [ the main reason why some have trouble is that entering bios is very very very hard when in mode fast…because pc is too fast… so a lot of user change that option …and that explains the new reboot option “re-boot to bios” of vmware or latest mainboards…]

CPU microcode updates are no big deal. And most of times we even don`t know whether we use any programs with CPU instructions fixed by those microcode updates. It is not like each update covers 50% of instructions - just one or two.

if bios does not have a microcode for a cpu… then the mainboard does not start at all…so when UBU deletes them … it KILLS computers…
having the latest microcode means that the cpu will function at best…
n.b. : i am not so surprised "the bios gurus" do not post here…

The latest BIOS modules or drivers are not automaticly the best, especially not for older systems.
