    Hi,

    This problem affect also:
    - Z68XP-UD3-iSSD U1A, U1B and U1C bios.
    - Z68XP-UD3 board U1J bios.
    - Z8MX-UD2H board unknown bios version.
    - Z68MA-D2-HB3 board U1C bios.

    I try to mod the bios of my GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD and i've face a problem when i insert modules.
    I use the method from XpamAmadeus (thanks to him), deleting modules and insert somes.
    I applied this method on GA-H77n-wifi board without a problem.

    But for My Z68XP, it seems that this bios behave strangely. under a certain amount of free space (~1660 kB), insert fails because "insufficient space remains to add the file"

    I use MMTOOL (4.50.023) for inserting, gui and command line.
    Original rom U1C (Firmware Volume 02) have 8kB free space.
    I extract COREDXE as uncompressed (1 495 kB) and delete filesystem.
    It givess me 1534 KB of freespace on Vol 2.

    When i try to insert with "insert compressed" COREDXE

    Mmtool Gui gives me "error getting firmware info".

    MMtool Command line:
    MMTool.exe u1c-ssdxe-ssfs.rom /i /y 5AE3F37E-4EAE-41AE-8240-35465B5E81EB coredxe-u1c-uncomp 02

    I have to made room up to 1661 kb of free space to get the insert of COREDXE module.
    Result after insert : Bytes Free : 1693E3 (1444 KB)

    If i try then to insert another module 7, 14, 107, 153, 262 or 308 kB uncompressed files.

    Same problem again with GUI or command line.
    MMTool.exe u1c-ssdxe-ssfs-sstcpdhcpip4ip4-cdxe.rom /i /y AAE65279-0761-41D1-BA13-4A3C1383603F .\Ozmosis\ozmosis.ffs 02

    I also tried with phoenixtool219 and it reports "no free space to manage modules".

    Could someone take a look at this Z68 bios and help me to fix it?

    Couldn't post a link !!! it's on : (http or ftp ) download.gigabyte.ru/bios/mb_bios_ga-z68xp-ud3-issd_u1c.exe
