    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Would be nice to know if this is possible. Anyone with an X58 motherboard managed to get Application Guard to work, mine gets to 30% and fails. Not sure if its because we have to disable vt-d.

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    I see the latest insider builds of Windows 10 is suppose to limit the impact of these microcode fixes, has anyone tried this to see if the impact is indeed less with the latest 19H1 build?

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Even the 19h1 builds still have this issue, doubt Microsoft will do anything to fix this, they seem to ignore most insider feedback anyway.

    Don't use RAID but at least these drivers install and Windows boots without any issues.

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Installed the 12.9.4.1000 drivers, no issues, also nice how these drivers don't list all my hard drives as removable as the default drivers did. Thanks for the help, will see if the drives seem more responsive.

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    I dont' get a BSOD, Windows just boots to the Logo and restarts and this loop continues until Windows does an automatic repair, even trying to go into Safe Mode results in the same problem, went back to the default Windows drivers and all works again. Very strange. Wonder in the Samsung Magician...

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Windows was installed with SATA AHCI, and the driver was installed via Device Manager, I didn't want any unnecessary Intel apps installed.

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Installed only the RST drivers, and now Windows 10 refuses to boot, gets top logo and then pc restarts continues in this loop, and eventually the repair options appear. Even trying Safe Mode does not work. Had to do System Restore. Hard drivers are set to AHCI mode in the bios. So I am back to...

    Thanks, is the RST driver still required if you don't use RAID?

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Is it better to use the built in Windows 10 chipset drivers, or the official Intel version?

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Thanks, are these just the default bios with the fix, or are there any other updates included?

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Thanks for making these modified BIOS files, does this support fixes for the i7 990x? I have an ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard. If I am not happy with any performance loss, can I reflash to the official BIOS with no side effects?
