Hi, don't get me wrong. 1.1 is the only one i can use F6 (load setup defaults) and then hit F10 (save en reboot).

If i use this in the 1.2 , 3 and 4 it freezes the computer.

I CAN save in 1.4 the nor mal way in the save and exit menu.

Okay, that was not quite clear to me from your other postings. That is why I asked.

@Jack: Like I said, my Board shipped with 1.4 and I can save on this bios, which I cannot on everything after 1.4, but I can reproduce the save-bug on 1.4 if I clear the cmos (without flashing anything), restart, enter the bios, hit F6 and then F10. The difference to other versions is, that a single reset solves the problem. Thus, the freeze-bug is not limited to everything but the bios the board shipped with, although it is possible to solve it on 1.4.

Hi Brattak,

tnx, it shouldn't make a difference. The HQ one is also dos based. Plus you CAN save in all the previous bios versions i read. This we cannot.
I have packed it in and created a RMA. Also for my memory. If i have the new stuff will assemble and report here the findings.

Thanks all for the help. Appreciate it  :biggthumbsup:

Hi all,

Sorry to report but my patience ran out, so I have RMAed the board and gotten an ASUS P8P67 Pro instead from my retailer. Cost a bit extra (10 euros) but probably worth it in my opinion.

Good luck to everyone with this issue and thanks for the help so far.

Hi Mike, no need to be snarky.

Anyway for the benefit of everyone here, I did get this message from MSI last night, although I don't think it helps (I think it is the same 1.7 bios). PS, I did get an issue with my new asus (the cold boot issue when OCing), but it is fixed with a cmos clear AND I can save my bios settings now. So I have happily hit 4.5 ghz without any issues. Anyway here is the message from MSI:

Dear xyz,

Thanks for getting back to us and sorry for the late response!
Regarding your concern, we would suggest you visit following link to download and update to the latest BIOS 7681 V1.7 for a try:

BIOS http://www.msi.com/service/download/bios-15498.html

Note: Kindly please read the SOP on how to flash BIOS under DOS step by step;

Have a nice day & a good mood!

Thanks & Best Regards,
MSI Technical Support Team!

Hi Charismo,

thanks for the help (even now you don't own a MSi board anymore  :biggthumbsup: ).

I have also RMA-ed my board but decided to stick with the same brand/type. I will let know when i have all set up again. In the meanwhile what does it mean that all P67 boards have problems?

If you flash, use the Forums flasher.  >>Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<<

Make sure you remove any overclocking before flashing.  It's best to flash in a stock setting.


@charismo, I was being genuine.  I hope you do have good luck.  I also wanted to let users reading this that the issue has been affecting many manufacturers of the P67 boards.

This archive has been re updated by MSI to include the ME,
in a last few days or from today.
So M-Flash is not an option if we want to flash the ME too.
SOP.doc is included for those who gonna and want to flash it manually.

Else:

In those new conditions, since method added its not longer compatible with MSIHQ Tool
[Normally its not a problem to be proceed a new unknown or customized archives,
but this ME by that way added is altered too much and its exception like the 186+ME]


Instead:
Adjusted image compatible with MSIHQ Tool: [To flash 170+ME],
also can be pointed from "AIR Mode": [Point directly to BIOS Link/Url ]



Then Copy and Paste the link to adjusted/fixed image: https://forum-en.msi.com/moderator/pics/svet/V170_ME1164_MSIHQ_Tool.rar
[Note: This image is for >>MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<< only,
its NOT usable if you use it with SOP.doc MSI's instructions,
similar like MSI's official 1.7 image is NOT usable with MSIHQ Tool
]

when Tool ask for source archive[to locate your BIOS archive],
here:



E.g.: Give him the link/url to the fixed BIOS archive directly,
by copy and paste the link to the fixed BIOS archive

Then click Open and Tool will do the rest.

P.S:
Checked 186's ME vs 170's ME,
and its the same version.
[E.g. nothing is new:
1.7 was already flashed before
and the same ME was flashed already with 186+ME]

Hi Svet,

2 questions:

do we use 186 +ME or the one you provide (1.7 +ME)?
What is best way to flash, your tutorial or use the manual way (create a dos boot USB and typ in the *.bat).

Or doesn't matter?

thanks, will recieve my second board within a few days. Hope all will be fine with this one.

Use the one that works fine/well for you.
[1.7 is the latest one official, 1.86 is newer than 1.7, but Beta, the ME version is the same on both]
1.70 + ME1164: https://forum-en.msi.com/moderator/pics/svet/V170_ME1164_MSIHQ_Tool.rar
1.86 + ME1164: https://forum-en.msi.com/moderator/pics/186_ME1164_MSIHQ_Tool.rar
[Those images are for >>MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<< only, they are not usable if you use them with SOP.doc instructions]

With >>MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<< would be best.
As it does extra security checks, to ensure that target images are not corrupted or modified or damaged by anyway.
E.g. to ensure that's they are authentic before flash them
and also ensuring that they are correctly written over the USB key,
and that they can be read-ed fine from the USB key,
before flash them automatically.[If something is not correctly done, or Tool doesn't like something, he will make a notice abort the process]
Example if trouble is detected:




Quote
Or doesn't matter?

With >>MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<<
is ensuring that everything will be done properly and flashed correctly.
Any kind of user's errors are also dismissed[not possible], since everything is fully automated


Else both ways should works. [E.g. SOP.doc MSI's instruction or with MSIHQ Tool]

And yeah, with the MSIHQ Tool is also very easy,
cause all that you need to do is to copy and paste the either link:  [in a Tool]
1.70 + ME1164: https://forum-en.msi.com/moderator/pics/svet/V170_ME1164_MSIHQ_Tool.rar
1.86 + ME1164: https://forum-en.msi.com/moderator/pics/186_ME1164_MSIHQ_Tool.rar

Tool will make the USB key bootable and everything else automatically,
and will flash desired things

I've make differents test on my board for them and I hope they fix it right now

Can someone update only the bios without the ME and see if the error still occurs?

And if it's the intel firmware that's causing the problem, then why only few people have reported this sofar. It should happen with all the boards, shouldn't it?!

Hello everyone, i just wanted to share my experience. My stock bios is 1.4 so i went on MSI website to look for newer version and i found ver. 1.6. I flashed the new bios via mFlash tool in UEFI bios. It worked great even saving bios worked until i had to reset CMOS. No matter what i did i couldnt save new settings with 1.6 bios anymore. Went back to original 1.4 which is the only bios that allows me save settings. I even tried to flash ver 1.7 via MSIHQ tool but with same problem.

BIOS 1.6, or 1.5 for that matter, are not recommended to use. Links to the V1.7 + ME & V1.8b6 + ME can be found in this thread (Svet's Reply #164). :-))

Having the same issues here....

1.4 stock bios shows 32ghz @ stock settings :bonk:
Also the bios saves my changes but doesnt apply them

flashed to 1.7 in dos which updates the INTEL ME firmware to 1164
and now when trying to exit bios It just freezes, locks up.

I have to friends that both updated to 1.7 via m-flash which doesnt update the Intel ME firmware and they have no issues....

Is there a way to flash the ME back to the original and update the bios to 1.7? 1.8b5 and 1.8b6 freeze during bios exit as well.
un plugging mouse does not help...usb/ps2 mouse doesnt help...3 different ram kits no change...Im at a loss,  :undecided:

I guess there is different ME firmware in 1.4 bios than 1164. The weird thing is that 1.6 worked great until CMOS reset. I didnt disconnect AC cord after flashing 1.7 does that matter somehow?

I guess there is different ME firmware in 1.4 bios than 1164. The weird thing is that 1.6 worked great until CMOS reset. I didn't disconnect AC cord after flashing 1.7 does that matter somehow?

1.4 don't have and don't update ME firmware.
[The ME is not part of the BIOS image as well, its updating separately via Intel's update utility]
The ME firmware update basically is need for rare cases.
Normally no need to be updated.


That's too different things,[BIOS image and ME image which can be updated separately.]

If i understand correctly, i updated FM while flashing 1.7 via MSI HQ tool. So after going back to 1.4 the 1164 FM remains installed and aparently new FM didnt cause saving issue with 1.4 bios -> problem with bios version. Ill w8 for 1.8 final then.

yes, that's correct. [if you used Mode 1, point to .zip, .rar],
If mode 2 is used, "Point to Beta BIOS directly" and point him directly to E7681IMS.170,
it will flash the BIOS only without the ME]

This person, flashed to the same 1.70+ME [ https://forum-en.msi.com/moderator/pics/svet/V170_ME1164_MSIHQ_Tool.rar ],
with MSIHQ Tool, Mode 1.
E.g the same like you done and he doesn't have saving issues:
http://forum-de.msi.com/index.php?page=Thread&postID=770026#post770026
http://forum-de.msi.com/index.php?page=Thread&postID=770129#post770129

But he doesn't have those saving issues before either :)
Whatever he flash or test by any methods,
he don't have any issues.

I updated my bios to 1.7 using a USB drive and the M-flash utility within the bios (not booting off USB). I haven't experienced any of the issues people are describing which makes me wonder if something is actually happening but I'm not noticing it. I've OC'd my 2600K to 4.6ghz at 1.325v and it's stayed like that just fine, even from a cold power off.

Interesting, <3 google translator. Anyhow, im wondering wheter he used clear CMOS with new BIOS. I also checked mobo revision number and it says: 2.0 maybe thats the problem?

I don't understand it. If the problem is in the intel ME then why the v1.6 didn't work? It came before 1.7 and didn't have any firmware. So?

Lucky you! Can u try clear CMOS and then check if its capable of saving settings in bios for me pls?

That is correct. I was under the impression that it was not needed to be flashed except under rare conditions. Is there a changelog available for the updated ME firmware?

That's correct, but since MSI decided to put it into archive there is a reason for it,
and it should be also updated, e.g. we have rare case :)

nope, msi probably don't have such too, eventually Intel only should know what it does

klataa, this is a user-to-user forum.  We have no idea what MSI's plans regarding BIOS Development are.  Contact MSI Technical Support about such question.  Also, please stop posting the same question all over the place (this is the third thread you have posted it in and it certainly does not belong into this topic). 

Also, what you are describing has nothing to do with Vdroop.  Vdroop is a drop in CPU Core Voltage when the CPU is under full load (which is a safety measure!), not a difference in voltage readings between BIOS Settings and Windows applications.

hi all,

I too experience the bios freeze on save. So I follow this thread really closely.

the rest of the rig is :

2*4Go Gskill ripjawsX 1600MHz C9
i5 2500k + NHU-12P
Asus HD5870 1Go
C300 128Go -> port 1
Samsung F1 750Go -> port 3
WD 500 caviar blue -> port 4
Pioneer 212 black -> port 5
Hannspree 25" HF257
Hyundai 17" LD 72
Coolermaster Centurion 590 + Corsair TX850
keyboard logitech illuminated
Mouse logitech G500

I tried many bios update above 1.4 and none of them allow me to save my settings.

The ME update doesn't work for me. I always have an error code :

Error 8193: Intel (R) ME Interface : Cannot locate ME device driver

yesterday, i unplugged the computer and removed the "BIOS" battery.

Today i tried again the update ( using a DOS boot USB key ) to 1.7+ME... with no better luck.

I'm just waiting to see what's MSI next move to try and fix this  :)

We don't know, maybe yes maybe not.
But there is no idea to do that,
the latest one provided by Intel should works just fine.

I've tried my best to duplicate these issues, & it just isn't happening. Board came with BIOS V1.5 installed. This may or may not be a factor, but my PCB is V2.0. Only glitch was mouse didn't work after W7 was installed, but after a reset, all was fine ever since. BIOS V1.7 worked well, & so does 1.8b6. I also downloaded & installed the newest ME driver direct from Intel, it is version 7.0.3.1184. Initial startup = 1 RAM stick, 1 VGA, 1 HDD, 1 CD/DVD drive, loaded W7, installed all updates, drivers & utilities, tested for 100% stability, & then added other RAM & components with 100% 'no problem' success.

Added: The forum USB flasher & Svet's guidance in this thread, is priceless. It flat out works great!

Hi

I'm in the same situation as boobeer:

2*2Go Gskill ripjaws 1600MHz C9
i5 2500k + NHU-12P
Gigabyte GTX460 1Go


Just like him, I tried many bios update above 1.4 and none of them allow me to save my settings: they all freeze when trying to save&exit.

Also: "The ME update doesn't work for me. I always have an error code :

Error 8193: Intel (R) ME Interface : Cannot locate ME device driver"

I also get that error with the MSI tool (although the message only stays on screen for half a second before i get the picture with the mouse telling me everything went fine...

Again the same situation: "Today i tried again the update ( using a DOS boot USB key ) to 1.7+ME... with no better luck."


I m waiting for MSI to react, rapidely would be nice!
