Hi, appreciate you uploading these, but please link the site as I'd like to get the latest when possible. It doesn't need to be in English, as Chrome can translate it with a click. :)

New firmware version 210906_00_76_01 from 11/2021.
The above post is for ASMedia 1062 cards (Rev 2) not ASMedia 1061 (Rev 1) - which this post is about!
• Both ASMedia 1061 and ASMedia 1062 cards are referred to as 'ASMedia 106x SATA Controllers' (which causes the confusion) - I have fixed that problem below! :D
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Firmware Update for Asmedia 1061.
----------------------------------------
Device Name: Asmedia 1061 SATA Controller Ver 5.00 AHCI Mode.
• Have amended the 'String Name' with a Hex Editor to avoid confusion and renamed Ver 4.27 as Ver 5.00.
• The default 'Asmedia 1061 SATA Controller BIOS' did not integrate with my 'motherboard BIOSes' correctly!
• NOTE: This package is for a v1 card. v2 firmware DOES NOT work with it! Think of it as Asmedia 1061 and >>NOT<< Asmedia 1062!

Device Manager.
------------------
Device Manager\Storage controllers\Microsoft Storage Spaces Controller.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Driver Name: Microsoft Storage Spaces Controller
Hardware ID: Root\Spaceport
• This driver should be installed via Windows 10 Professional 21H2! Nothing else is needed!
• I have also backed up this driver! It is 64 bit.

WARNING!
------------
Asmedia ASM-106x Sata 6G controller Drivers Version 3.3.3.0
Asmedia ASM-106x Sata 6G controller Drivers Version 3.3.3.5
• These seem to install and appear fine alongside the above driver, but I had a year of the BSOD as a result!
• Uninstall these if installed in Device Manager, and remove permanently!

Very nice, but is there a changelog, and also how does one flash this firmware?

Pretty much what I said in my original post. I renamed 4.27 as 5.00 and tweaked a string in order to make sure that it is clear that this is the last BIOS for v1 and that this one is the v4.27 that works!!! Changed 106x to 1061 and v4.27 to v5.00.

Build two was because it is not ASMedia as I’d used, but actually spelt Asmedia. Fixed that now...

This is a nice firmware. Some flash with DOS and some used Windows. I used the Windows flash program as it works fine.

You obviously haven’t looked in the zip - is as clear as I could make it. Has rid me of BSOD associated with this card using Asmedia 1062 drivers, plus fixed issues in previous BIOSes where the main board BIOS showed garbled information.

The driver is found by Windows 10, but I read it from Device Manager and backed it up.

There is a screenshot of the flashing in the previous post!

If you have a v2 card, ie Asmedia 1062 then, you’ll need a different BIOS. Asmedia 106x is NOT what my card is, my posts are for Asmedia 1061. The Asmedia 1062 drivers seem to crash and BSOD on my Asmedia 1061 although it took me a year to work this out!!!

I have 1064, do you have the bios for that? as it turns out I do have a bug that when using the card it messes up the drives shown on my board bios.

1064 is 4 ports gen 3 card.

No. Just the solution I found for my Asm1061. Maybe Asm106x applies to Asm1062 upward?

Try a later BIOS for Asm1062 and see if it goes. Either will flash and work, flash and die or do nothing!

I think it will be ok. When I tried Asm1062 on my Asm1061 I was told it would not work and nothing happened.

That’s how I realised it needed to be called Asm1061 and NOT Asm106x.

I suspect Asm1062 BIOS works on Asm1062 and above. Unless there is a dedicated Asm1064 BIOS somewhere. But it is labeled as Asm106x...

Just bought some DH61CR boards off eBay. These are a sod to get to BIOS 0120 (SPECIFIC METHOD) but once done, they then support i7 Gen 3.

I might remove my Asm1061 card and motherboard/Quad Core and update my work PC to an i5. I would get 4x Sata that way.

because I connect a 20-port controller and they all work fine but I connect the second controller and it doesn't start because the image freezes when the computer starts

I see that it shows me the 2 cards and takes the disks but after that the image is frozen, just in case I ask, do I have to update the driver and firmware?

Some flash with DOS
Can you please help me with the "how"? Your ZIP file does unfortunately only include windows files. I do have linux installed. So I would like to ask for advice: which .exe file would I need to put on my (free-dos) USB stick to upgrade? Thank's in advance for your help :)

I upgraded from Windows 7. The easiest way would be a Windows 7 PE CD to give you a temporary environment. I suspect this may work...

The last firmware (210906_00_76_01) is seems buggy.

I couldn't install Windows because of it. The controller locked up during reformat and partitioning.

Reverting to 201105_00_76_00 fixed it for me.

I have 2 10x sata extension cards with asm106x installed for a home video server currently running under windows 10 on a Asus B550 board. I want to switch to Win11.
I have this problem:

Booting Windows UEFI without TPM Secure mode with CSM enabled works okay, the two controllers show their messages and the disks coming up and after 40 seconds windows login screen appears.

In UEFI TPM Secure mode ( no CSM possible ) I get a black screen, no controller messages, but after 5-10 MINUTES the windows login screen appears.
I tried flashing the newest 3 versions of the asm106x but nothing helps.
The disks are usable, but the boot delay is just too long.

I could work wit Win11 installed with TPM disabled, but who knows which problems I would get from Microsoft in the future ?

Does anybody know where to find a firmware which works with UEFI Secure mode ?
Or new cards which work with Win11 ?

Hi,
just registered here as it is the only place that you can find references and advice for the asm 106x.

I have a such PCI-E x1 card with four sata connectors and it is marked as "SU-SA3004.V2" with a lot of issues on win7 and win10 platforms on different computers. Symptoms varying from blue screen, frozen pc to gapping perfomance (if on IDE mode from selection switch).

Mainly, I'm trying to setup a home NAS using the mobo Biostar A68-2100K with this asm controller but dealing withe impossible.

From one side Biostar is advising to use this particular controller with firmware ver 3.7, see link. From the other side, I'm unable to load any other firmware except ver 5.0 from the user The_Mole_UK in this thread.

All of my efforts with dos boot disk were failed and I get a message "do not detect ASM 2106B" as the user jas0ndotc0m was mentioned on this thread. I have try with various versions of spiupd.exe and various ROM files, everyrhing is failing.

So far I'm looking for a effective method of flashing the pci-e card and the correct version of 3.7 firmware, as what I can find around is the bersion of 32KB and I'm assuming the this is a shortened version of built in BIOS version.

Any help is welcomed!

Thanks

@navigatoras For the firmware asm1061
1)create a bootable usb disk (for example rufus)
2)unzip the folder i attached and put the four files in the usb stick root folder.
3)boot the pc from usb and write this command: AHCI.bat (please disable secure boot as we need to run in dos environment)
5) the firmware will updated to the new 4.27 (is the same that The_Mole_UK attached without his mod as not needed)
