Can you possibly create custom BIOSes for other Gigabyte mobos as well? Specifically, for the GA-970A-UD3P rev 1.0 in order to resolve GNU/Linux compatibility issues.

Thank you for your answer!

Hi, how do I flash this custom bios? Using qflash? But the custom bios is a *.bin file whereas the official bios are something like *.f4

I just wanted to say thank you for making this custom bios! It has let me hold off on buying a new machine while still getting a new drive that will be useful when I do.

I had some trouble installing Windows 10 because I didn't know anything about UEFI. If anyone else gets stuck with the installer telling you it can't install on the nvme drive you have to make a UEFI version of the Windows 10 installer USB with rufus and then it will let you install.

So confirmed working on Gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 rev4.0 with Samsung 970 EVO 250GB.

Thank you for letting us and I hope your PC performance is boosted with the new nvme drive... I am thinking about doing an upgrade too

I would like to ask if anyone is running this motherboard with 64GB of RAM? I bought recently 32GB (2x16GB) modules from ebay and tried to make them work... they didn't work with auto settings in the bios so I managed to make them work for a short period with tons of trial and error by tweaking the settings but I didn't have a stable setting and I was coupling them with some other sticks... still I think if they work then it will be great to have a motherboard from that generation run on 64GB stable... I am willing to give it another shot but right now I am skeptic that I can even make the 32GB sticks alone (I always have to add another stick to make it boot)...

This board can do max 32GB ram and the memory list shows 4GB per ram side is max hence 8 GB stick is the limit. In other words 8GB sticks in 4 slots = 32GB

Actually it's able to work up to 40GB, I used 2x16GB and 2x8GB and managed to make it work by tweaking the settings but for some other reasons my computer wasn't stable (overheating) then I removed them for fixing but I lost one of the 8GB (a pin was broken)... since then I am running with some other sticks but I only get 18GB recognized by windows (2GB reserved)

I did an update of the microcode of the bios for this motherboard and I will upload the file soon... I used NvmExpressDxe_Small instead since I've read some on the forums say that it's recommended because it's faster and obviously smaller than Fernando initial implantation...

I will do some testing and upload the files.

PS: posting captcha is annoying and hard to decipher

Hello everyone,

Thanks for custom BIOS. Works fine to me.

Can anyone tell me what causes an Ultra ATA CRC Errors on SATA SSD Samsung 860 PRO?
I hoped that after this update, everything would be ok with a drive but on occasions that errors come back again. I replaced SATA cable, even connect to the different power cable.
My setting is AHCI mode, but I think about changing 'On Chip SATA Type' to 'RAID' and see what happens. Anyone had the same problems?
