I mean... as owner of the MSI X58 Pro-E (MS 7522) board, I would like to see the Xeon support in bios working. So it is obvious, that I need help with bios microcode update to support for Xeon LGA 1366 CPU's, as least the X5650, X5670 and X5690. I posted a request (24.7.2015) there: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5863-Award-amp-AMI-Bios-mod-requests/page5875 But nothing happend... yet. MSI X58 Pro-E, AMI Bios 8.F - http://www.msi.com/support/mb/X58_ProE.html#down-bios These Xeons work in the mainboard ( http://postimg.org/image/f9ka2hnl9/ ), but they are not recognized as Xeons during post/bios. I believe this could have get better, if the bios is updatedwith the LGA 1366 Xeons microcode & support, nope? Alternative download links for the bios (unlocked options in AmiBCP 3.5, so pls use these links rather): https://mega.co.nz/#!bRNgiZhQ!0OEuaJUP8_nzSrw8XvYw1PTkznUWARAxGFLnqz1wNGk http://dfiles.eu/files/1plosw4r8 http://www.mediafire.com/?829zvb1m7bc70bg How hard this can be? As for the source donator of the bios, then a X58 chipset board that does support these Xeons are Supermicro X8SAX: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon3000/X58/X8SAX.cfm "Intel® Core™ i7 / i7 Extreme Edition, and Intel® Xeon® 5600/5500/3600/3500" So, "donator" bios is there: https://mega.co.nz/#!GJ1DRKgS!EmrT9RcSxmt1U56L_a1vn-SSh9Iog2b5Hq2blw79VR4 http://dfiles.eu/files/2d8mlj2t8 http://www.mediafire.com/?2hy8wmdeqm1d3ci ...and I can open it in AmiBCP, but... don't know what else to do. Pls help? PS: for Windows 7 activation I saw a SLIC v2.1 mod for this X58 Pro-E mobo there: But dunno, if that help anyone. I have legit Win7, so I don't need this. On top of that, I planing to use WinXP on this mobo PS2: looks like using the MMTool v3.26 is possible to extract modules / replace modules in the bios: However even extracting the bios logo is fun: ...I still have a hard time figuring out the CPU microcode support. It is the "P6 Micro Code"? And what about the CPU PATCH tab? And how to combine the P6 Micro Codes? I mean... the microcode on the MSI X58 Pro-E is bigger that the one on the Supermicro X8SAX... So even I can replace the MSI microcode with the Supermicro microcode, then I will actually remove some CPU support as the file from Supermicro is smaller... Hmmm, anyone can help me there?
