Is possible to add NVME support for X79TO to bios? I'm using refind now, so I can load driver from software, but this process is slow. If there's space in the rom image(6kb), adding NVME FFS into the DXE driver section would be quite easier. thanks

Possible? Probably. Will it happen? No.

The answer is No, this cannot happen. The source code package for the Siler BIOS, which supported the DX79SI (Siler), DX79TO (Thorsby) and DX79SR (Stormville) boards, was lost. Per notification Intel-SA-00115 for Intel® Desktop Boards (available here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000028718/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards.ht...):

 

  • Intel branded desktop motherboards were discontinued in 2013. We no longer have the motherboard-specific BIOS source code, build environment, and tools to build new BIOS releases with the microcode update for some discontinued products.

 

Sorry,

I understand.

Well, I only have to say that NVme behaves normally at full speed in this board. Despite motherboard and cpu are not PCIe3 certified, they run at nominal speed (my R9 Fury also works at PCIE3.0 without any problems). The "slowness" is just for booting.

I will leave this link to refind site, so you can advice other users. Also the refind drivers can enable UEFI GOP, and filesystem support.
