Subject: Windows 10 with P67 Extreme6 RevB2 - BSODs
Date Posted: 06 Nov 2020 at 7:49pm
A proud owner of AsRock P67 Extreme6 Rev. B2, serial no# 0CM0X3053908

Purchased in 2011 and still going strong with Windows 7 64bit, except for the 4 SATA2 ports that no longer work. Wasn't aware of the rev B2 SATA2 port decay issue, missed the recall announcement/period altogether, had to find out the hard way when I thought some my HDDs have suddenly died 5-6 years ago. I have since installed 2 PCIe to SATA cards to cater for the HDDs.

So the problem arises when I tried to fresh install Windows 10 (tried both 2004 and 20H2, and each Windows version with all scenarios below) on a SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 500GB), tried on SATA port P0 and/or P1. I get constant BSODs, spontaneously, after booting into Windows.

TL;DR version
#1 - Would updating the BIOS get me out of the BSOD nightmare?
#2 - Has anyone who own the same motherboard and similar setup had any luck updating to Windows 10, successfully?
#3 - What is the mysterious device or driver that's causing all these BSOD?

Current setup:
Note: Everything running at stock, no O/C, stock BIOS v1.10
CPU: i5-2500K
RAM: 4 x 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL 1600MHz
(Running @ 1333MHz, cannot boot past POST/BIOS with 1600)
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC 6GB
PSU: Corsair HX750
PCIe#1 - ASM106X - 4 Ports SATA3
PCIe#2 - ASM1166 - 6 Ports SATA3

For the Windows 10 installation, there's only the ONE 500GB SSD connected to either P0 or P1 at any one time. All other SDDs and HDDs are disconnected. The 2 x PCIe to SATA cards were also disconnected. To rule out the chance of a faulty SSD, I've inserted this SSD (with Windows installed) onto another PC (Lenovo Tiny m93p), and it booted fine, no BSOD observed in 2 hours. Put this SSD back into AsRock P67 Extreme6, the constant BSODs came back. Then I tried with a brand new Crucial MX500 2TB in two of the iterations in those scenarios, got the same results - constant BSODs.

The long version
After installation of Windows 10, I get constant spontaneous BSODs when I get into Windows, giving the error "Kmode exception not handled", on all 3 scenarios below. And every time after booting into Windows, it won't last more than 30 minutes before it gets a BSOD.

Scenario #1 - Let Windows Update install all the required drivers.
     * Case#1 - Windows 10 ver 2004 on P0
     * Case#2 - Windows 10 ver 20H2 on P1
     * Case#3 - Windows 10 ver 2004 on P0
     * Case#4 - Windows 10 ver 20H2 on P1

Scenario #2 - Manually install the following Windows 10 drivers (with no Internet Connection)
     * AsRock P67 Extreme6 website:
        - Intel ME 11.0.0.1156
        - INF driver 10.1.1.8
        - 3TB+ Unlocker utility ver:1.1.1
     * 3rd Party:
        - Etron EJ168 USB 3.0 ver_0.119
        - Marvell SATA3_mv91xx_1.2.0.1049
        - Realtek LAN_Win10_10045_10232020
        - Realtek Audio R2.81
        - Nvidia Drivers 457.09, released 2020.10.29, for Win 10 64-bit

Scenario #3 - Connect to the internet after Scenario #2, and let Windows Update does its things. I noticed the following was updated,
     * Intel ME 11.0.0.1156 updated to 11.0.0.1157
     * INF driver 10.1.1.8 updated to 10.1.1.38

Also mentioned before, if I boot with Windows 7, everything is hunky dory.

Checking the Event Viewer, these event IDs are constantly popping up in a group, quite consistently:
     * Event 1001: Bugcheck...
     * Event 41: Kernel-Power
     * Event 56: Application Popup, with the following PCI codes
        - PCI 01000000684CE00000
        - PCI 010101010101010100

I've also run Windows Memory Diagnostics, no issues found.

Tried unplugging mouse and keyboard and leave the PC alone - still end up with BSOD.

Device Manager hasn't shown any drivers issues.

Then I was desperate enough to run "Verifier.exe".
1st round - No unsigned drivers have been found
2nd round - No drivers built for older versions of Windows have been found
3rd round - Verifying ALL drivers gave rise to a whole new problem, the dreaded "DRIVER VERIFIER DETECTED VIOLATION" reboot loop. I had to google on how to break the boot loop.
Then, event viewer shows a new Event ID 5, Kernel-General.

Having tried all the above, I think I have narrowed it down to 2 possible causes,
1.     A mysterious device or driver
2.     BIOS.

Since I have no luck discovering what this mysterious device or drive is, I turned my area of research to the BIOS, then I found this thread:
[URL=http://forum.asrock.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3922&title=help-needed-p67-extreme6-b2-revision-bios-problem]AsRock Forum Thread[/URL]

From what I understand, I should NOT need to update the BIOS if I?m on Sandy-bridge, the update is only required if you are using Ivy-Bridge. Difference between B2 and B3 revisions are the SATA2 ports issues are fixed. The OP in the forum also recommends BIOS v1.80, rather than the v2.10.

So the question now is, do I need to update the BIOS so that I can have a stable Windows 10 installation? If yes which BIOS version should I get?

Would the BIOS update perhaps enable the board to run the RAM at 1600MHz?

I've already looked up in eBay and found this seller: bios-store.

Hi AmberJEY, I have exact the same issue you have. Only slightly different motherboard: P67 Extreme4 Gen3

At some point windows update on an older build of Windows 10 would not update anymore, so I decided to install a fresh version of Windows 10 Pro (20H2), but now I wish I hadn't.

Every x min (could be 5min, or 15min) I encounter a BSOD and the system reboots. Device manager says all drivers are okay, but I think it's the RealTek Audio Driver that is causing this, but there is no newer driver available.

Did you figure it out?

Hi MichelvH, still no joy from my end I'm afraid. The other thing I've tried after posting this is installing Intel RST (Win 7 version downloaded from Asrock website). No notable improvements -- still getting constant BSOD.

I've already given up to be honest. I'll just stick to Windows 7 on this machine.

Did you have 1903 or 1909 before 20H2?

I might try with 1909 or 1903.

Hi AmberJEY,

That is unfortunate.. I think we have no option but to roll-back to an older version of Windows 10.
I hope I remember correct: My Windows tried to update to 1909 but failed, so I manually downloaded the 20H2 version. In that case the original (working) state must have been 1903.
I am going to try to revert back to that version.

Long time using Win 7 x64 Ult on Asrock P67 Extreme4 revB2 with no problems.
Few days also ago tried to install Win 10 x64 Pro 20H2 and... constant BSOD KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED!!!
Tried different 20H2 install source (official, non-official) - same BSOD.
Tried 2004 version - same BSOD.
"Out-Of-The-Box"! Constant BSOD! BTW, in safe mode (and it's very strange) OS works stable.
I've searched many forums, even MS site. Then in some thread on MS forum I've found message with information that last versions of Win10 can't be installed on older hardware configurations and decided to try lesser version.
Then I've tried to install 1909 version and it works! No BSOD. But ))
There is some strange thing... CPU load showing always 100% for all 4 cores (i have i5-2500k on MB) and CPU clock showing insane values, like 43567890 GHz, while system mainly is responsive.

So the Windows 10 installation problem on P67 chipset can be resolved with earlier versions - 1909 and earlier.
But fake 100% CPU load... for example, i have latest BIOS 2.10 for my M/B P67 Extreme4 revB2 and problem is still there...

I have the exact same thing and haven't found the solution yet. Seems to be an issue with one of the drivers. In this case I think it's the Intel chipset driver set, but there is no newer version than the one I have installed. I think it's time to sunset this motherboard and go look for a new one...

Looks like same problem happens with all P67 chipsets motherboards. Same issue on my AsRock P67 PRO3 SE and also didn't find a solution. But it all started, when I bought sh*ttiest Zalman VE350 external hard drive. Before that, there was not such a problem, but also something obv broke in my motherboard, cuz it wont start with the CMOS battery now. Could it be actual BIOS problem?

I had this problem and my minidump showed cfosspeed6.sys was the problem. I uninstalled the Asrock XFast LAN utility and my problem seems to have gone away.

I have a similar problem, and will attempt to detail as much as possible here:

HARDWARE
P67 Extreme4 - P1.60
i5-2500K
Samsung 850 EVO (original, still running Win10 1909)
Samsung 860 EVO (new, attempting clean install of Win10 20H2)
Corsair Vengeance Blue 16GB (2x8 GB) DDR3 1600MHz (PC3 12800) (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10B)
GTX 960
Corsair TX750 PSU

SOFTWARE
Windows 10 Pro version 1909 (10.0.18363) (This is what I'm currently using that doesn't bluescreen)
BIOS settings: Drives in IDE mode on 1909, attempted AHCI on 20H2 (explained below), no overclocks, mostly or entirely default config.

HISTORY
Originally built in the summer of 2011 with a disk instead of SSD. Upgraded to 850 EVO SSD originally and eventually upgraded to Windows 10, but remained on IDE mode because of problems switching to AHCI mode (may have been my own misconfiguration in the past).

For the past few years in Win10 I have had the CPU utilization bug (pictured):



In 2020, I decided to purchase a new SSD (860 EVO) and attempt AHCI again, this time with a clean install of Win10. However, I would get unpredictable reboots and/or bluescreens on the system after installing and logging in. Can't remember the error anymore. Ditched this attempt for awhile and remained on Win10 1909 with my previous configuration (850 EVO), which is stable and doesn't bluescreen on me.

In 2021, I repeated this previous attempt at a clean install on the 860 EVO with AHCI, this time using Win10 20H2. After the initial install process, after the first reboot while configuring the system, windows bluescreens with the dreaded KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. However, after that it somehow manages to boot and I am able to log in. Once in it's only a matter of time before it bluescreens on the same error again, though (the longest I've seen it go is about 15 minutes).

If I'm quick enough, I can reconfigure windows to boot into safe mode, which seems able to run indefinitely. However, parsing the memory dumps as suggested in various other forums has turned up nothing specific - no particular driver is identified as the problem, it's always one of two kernel executables.

There was one thread, somewhere (maybe MScommunity help), where a user indicated that they updated their BIOS to fix this problem - however at the moment I cannot find it.

If I dig up any promising resources on this problem or make any progress I will share it here.

Hi,

I havent such a BSOD issue with my AsusTek board. Neither do I see CPU at 100%, and CPU speed looks correct on my side.

But I get high system interupt usage + CPU at 14% after cold boot. I need a further warm boot to get things Ok.

That box was initially running Win8, then was updated to 10 (up to the most recent version). It worked fine until last summer, then after a Windows update, interrupts went high...

I assume I have a driver issue, but didn't find which one, or how I could tweak that box. So I'm booting (cold initial), then rebooting (warm boot) to solve that interrupt usage issue.

My HW is ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8P67-M (RAID) plus i7-2600K. It may be a rev 3.0 mother board (I would need to open the box to check this). With a BIOS of 16/07/2013.

Just registered on forum to let you know that I figured it out on my P67 Pro3 B3 and i5-2500K. Also had values like 3879465GHz in task manager.

I've installed latest BETA BIOS for motherboard. It looks like it was intended for this purpose because it's flashable through UEFI Instant Flash, not from Windows OS where you get BSOD's and probably you won't be able to successfully flash.

Now the values in task manager are normal and I don't get any BSOD's

Hi MichelvH, The fake 100% CPU load, was this on 1903 or 1909?

Unfortunately there's no "Instant Flash" or "CPU monocode update" for the p67 Extreme6.

I also just registered to let you know, that this solved all of my problems!

I've been experiencing random BSODs since January when I installed Win10 updates.
Same as some of you: in the safe mode everything was fine.

For the past 6 months I have been unhurriedly trying to figure out what might be wrong - I tried a fresh install of Win10, tested all possible components together and separately - nothing helped. And now, the BIOS flash to version 3.40 finally stabilized the machine.

Thanks! :)

Sorry my control of English language is not good
Hi I also just registered to let you know.
ASRock p67 pro3 B2 (with fail in sata port)
Bios 2.0.2L custom.
The same problem: bsod in Windows version superior to 1909.
1909 working well.
Next I installed Windows system to superior at 1909 and update bios to the last beta 3.40 work well stable system about 48 hours on, but ¡In bios I lost 2 socket of ram! The total of 12gb= 2x4gb and 2x2gb only appears 2x4gb in slot A1 and B1, I can choose between 1066 or 1333, in other program as cpu-z appear 12gb, in system and games only 8gb.

The next step to test downgraded bios 2.40beta to 2.30stable = the pc don't work... press button on 1 second restart, 3 second... restart restart restart...

In the past in all versions of Windows 10 this pc have CPU 100% fake in task manager.

If you need download a specified version of Windows 1909 there to ways:

By other hand I contact with support of ASRock via mail about what is the correct version to update bios and the answer was:
Hello,
sorry no Spanish speaking. I reply in English.
You can ??based on serial number
Purchase Date:
20 Feb, 2011
Serial Number:
11MOX1052811
??only go to BIOS 2.xx ??because of B2 stepping of chipset.
BIOS 3.xx is only for B3 stepping chipset mainboards.
In answer to shop other main board to test
We do not have this mainboard anymore on stock (since many years).
You might find it on platforms like eBay, Amazon or local used part platforms?

Sorry for the intrusion in this post since I wrote about a different one than the one in the first post, both motherboards share similar problems
