Windows 10 Creators update breaks SIV
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:45:56 am »
EasyTune SIV abruptly stopped working when the Windows 10 Creators update came out. I have a GA z170 Gaming 7 motherboard with Windows 10. It has been working great for months with SIV controlling my water pump speed. Then the creators update came out and now the pump runs at max rpm. I tried upgrading Easytune and SIV, but I get "SIV EasyTune engine is re-starting. Please wait" forever. I have to end task to kill it. Can anyone give advice on this? My ears are ringing from the pump drone.

I would just add that the system event log shows Error 7034 The EasyTune Engine Service terminated unexpectedly.

Can you revert?  Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Go Back To an earlier build...

Or Advanced Start Up > Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Go Back To Previous Build

Nothing magical about this update from what I've read.

You should also open a ticket with Gigabyte Support...  But ATM, you are the only user I've seen mention this issue.

Going back to the previous build works. I've seen someone else mention the same problem with this motherboard, Windows 10 Creators update, and SIV, although I don't think it was crashing the same way as mine is. There was some recommendation to install .Net 4.5, but that is already included with Windows 10, so .Net is not the problem. I'll get an external PWM controller so I don't have to worry about this in the future.

By the way, the F21 BIOS and the Windows 10 Creators update weren't compatible either. When the BIOS was upgraded, I was not longer able to boot Windows at all.

Glad you could roll back and regain function. 

I think we are looking at 30-90 days (from 4/11) before the creators update is actually pushed to machines via windows update.  Its optional (manual) for now unless you are 'insider"

Sounds like it should be avoided for now until more vendors can test their software with it.
