I've had some problems trying out the new 2.3 bios with my older TR-1950x chip.  Are there any problems with rolling the bios back?  Unsure because of the new "Bridge Bios" procedure.

I have been informed that the 2.3 bios update is for Threadripper 2 ONLY.  If you have flashed to 2.3, you can safely do a FlashBack to version 2.0.

It is definitely NOT for Threadripper2 only. My 1950X is working perfectly fine with the 3.20 BIOS.

I figured as much, because I had no problems with it in safe mode... Win-7.  I was going to try a fresh Win-10 install but I needed to get back to 7 proper for a few things.  Just wanted some specifics on safely rolling back past that "update" bios.  

thanks

The one obvious problem I found with the p3.20 uefi bios was that my onboard sata m.2 ss 850 evo raid 0 array went offline, so I reverted back to the p2.10 bios. I would very much like to use the 3.20, but have not had time to try deleting and recreating my raid array. Anyone have info or experience with this problem? I read some post that said you can't use both sata and nvme raid with this bios???

Hi,

I was finally able to get All of my raid0 arrays recognized with the 3.20 bios. It was necessary to go to uefi advanced tab and under cbs options, fch common options, enable both sata mode and sata raid (I also enabled the two sata port options), and this was for my m.2 sata array. I also enabled sata raid at the top of advanced->storage options, as well as nvme raid under pbs options.

However, I am still not able to boot off these arrays now, so I will be doing some more investigating.

The reason you're having problems with your raid array is because flashing BIOS overwrites your board's CMOS memory.. if you boot from a raid array you should never flash BIOS without first backing up your BIOS config to a basic volume or USB drive. Then you can flash and restore and should be fine but you may need to run latest raidxpert2 so put that oprom on a USB, turn CSM on and enable booting storage oproms

Hi, thanks for the reply, but I do have my bios backed up and can flash-back anytime I deem necessary, which is what I had to do with this 3.20 (backed out to 2.10). Also, there is a problem with the RaidXpert module in the p3.20 and p3.22b bios as it disappears from the uefi when raid is enabled for all options. Confusing. And I found that when I tried the p3.22b bios, I lost two of my arrays and had to restore them from backups.

Thanks,

Bryan
