I think my BIOS never had the Intel ME firmware installed into it to begin with, but who knows?

That's an interesting observation.  I installed the MSI Control Center II (2.0.012) app and I noticed I got a warning message every time I ran it.  I'm not home right now but it said something about I must install the Intel MEI before overclocking.  When I downloaded and tried to run the MEI software (from the MSI website), the installer wouldn't run saying my environment didn't meet the requirements (again, sorry for vague messages but I'm at work now and can't get the exact wording).  At the time, I didn't think anything of it because OC'ing was something I was going to worry about after I got the bios fixed.  Could everyone else who's having the save issue see if they get the same error message when they launch the MSI control center (http://www.msi.com/service/download/utility-15496.html)?  And if you do get the same warning as I do, try to install the Intel Management Engine Driver (http://www.msi.com/service/download/driver-15512.html) and see if the installer will run for them?

Hi All,

I am starting to believe in faith now.
Just minutes after I posted the suggestion to flash (E7681IMS.186 + ME1164.BIN), my collegue received a brand new P67A-GD65 from stock (with bios v1.4 on it) for testing.
He entered the bios, F6 Load optimized defaults, F10 Save & Exit -> Hangs right there.

He thought (as i did) , just flash the ME part and it should be fine.
Wrong, ME part could not be flashed. (He tried E7681IMS.187 +ME1164.BIN)

See attached picture.

We tried changing some hardware: CPU, MEM, VGA.
No solution.

Tried E7681IMS.186 + ME1164.BIN, could not flash ME part.

Tried a P67A-GD55 with the same hardware and software, no problem flashing the ME part (see attached picture).
I also flashed P67A-GD65's before with ME1164.BIN without issues.

Hang in there, I am pushing for a  solution.

Yes, I had this same issue.  I was able to circumvent it by reverting to 1.4 and then installing the MEI drivers in the OS.  If I was on a BIOS later than 1.4, Control Center II would seem to work, but the machine would sporadically lock up if I made changes.

Hi Ruudt,

It's much better if ur collegue also have a board, nice going.

I'm also testing.

Flash the 186 with ME and no errors! :) using 7681v186
-didn't cmos and in the bios it hangs again.
-after that i did cmos and i can save again (but only once)

booting into windows and check the intel me version in windows and it says 7.0.0.1118 > Don't we have to updat it also to the same version with the flash (7.0.2.1164)?
Will try to update it also in windows...testing

edit
installed 7.0.2.1164 but after instal it shows 7.0.0.1144?
reboot and go into bios, same problems that it hangs
clearcmos> same save freeze.

Hi All,

The ME update issue is not solved but the "F10 / Save & Exit" issue is solved by bios E7681IMS.18A.

See attached.

Can you all test that one.

Grt Ruudt.

I tested it with DOS and AFUDE234.EXE but I think M-FLash should do the trick too (since the ME part still can't be updated).

Thank God that someone of YOU finally bought such a board and BELEIVED that this is a REAL problem!

HOW LONG SHOULD IT HAVE TAKEN TILL YOU REALISE THIS IS REAL???

This has been reported on Jan 4th and so many user have contacted the MSI support since then! It obviously took less than ONE (1!) hour to fix it after you got such a board!

Guys, you should either be around here more often or BELIEVE IN THE PROBLEMS PEOPLE REPORT THEY HAVE.

It's called "SUPPORT SURVICE".  :idea:

It saves! I flashed 1.8B10 using the MSI HQ Flash Tool 1.19e5, cleared the CMOS, rebooted and for the first time ever on anything after 1.4 it did NOT lock up on save.

Thank you very much!

Yep bios 1.8b10 doesn't freeze when you save.

Just a small issue with spread spectrum on the O/C tab.. when trying to disable it it freezes..

I hope you'll find a solution for the ME firmware update fail.

Thx for the beta bios.  :)

okay this is great news that there appears to be a fix.

but obviously there was a lack of communication from MSI. They were obviously working on it (since it is fixed in the latest bios), why didn't they post anything, even if just to say "yes we recognise this issue exists and our engineers are working on a new bios to fix it".

This simple message with some daily updates or something would have kept me as an MSI customer.

I hope that MSI takes this feedback seriously. Customer relationships and experiences last over many years. Getting customers to feel brand loyalty means you have to treat them well, and can be very rewarding in the long run (i.e. in a 10 year period I am likely to buy 5-6 mobos).

The ME is 'On Topic' now I believe. Maybe partly or in whole responsible for the 'No Save' issue. I also find it odd that the updates all show 1164, but Device Manager shows it as 1144. :think:

Added: And how does Intel's update driver 7.0.3.1184 fit into all this? Will check if they provided a change log on what it's supposed to improve.

I agree with you, it has to be something with the ME.  I can't even install it using the software on the MSI site.

EDIT: Is there a way to verify what version I have?

A bit off topic here, but keep sending MSI Tech Support a ticket about it. My exemplar is around 0.027 or so depending on the OC.

My system won´t boot even after clearing the cmos. How can I recover my bios. It´s not using the second bios because the board assumes the first bios is fine. Is there a way to force it to second bios?

@ Bruticis Yes. 'Start' - 'Control Panel' - 'Device Manager' - 'System Devices' - 'Intel Management Engine Interface' - Right Click 'Properties' - 'Driver'.

@ narciso The best information on this is in the downloadable manual for the board at the MSI Website. That version of manual is far more comprehensive than the International/Europe Manual. Also, the post Jack made with the pdf link concerning the dual BIOS is in his Reply #5 in this thread; https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=145084.0

Added: Food for thought. Maybe Intel delivered a batch of parts to MSI manufacturing that didn't have the firmware installed? This flaw might not have shown up in MSI's pre-ship tests? That might explain the random nature of this as well. :think:

U r wrong my friend about MSI. After i wrote quite specific what is my problem (dual bott, problem with multi higher than 52, and couple more) thats what i got from MSI:

"Dear Sir/Madam,
Thanks for contacting MSI Technical Support Team!

Regarding to your concern, please contact your reseller (the place you bought the board from) for direct check. If the reseller for some reason cannot help, please check if there is MSI distributors nearby. you could find there address or website on this link. http://www.msi.com/service/wheretobuy/
If by chance , there is no MSI distributors, you can try to contact MSI office nearby. http://www.msi.com/about/contact-us/ for more help。

Thanks & regards,
MSI Technical Support Team!

Posted: Jan 27, 2011 by MSI"

Have you disabled EUP 2013? That should cure that.

I just did and still computer is botting twice. Its definitely Memory/BIOS issue with G-skill mems , cause i didnt had those problems on Corsair mems.

klataa, I don't know what your problem is, but start your own thread please! And don't even try to tell me that disabling EUP 2013 doesn't stop a double boot behavior! It stopped it on my Big Bang X, Eclipse Plus, & on this P67A-GD65! And with a little checking, you would know that some of the 2600k's are multi limited at 52. Check the net!

Omg. If u dont know what my problem is then why u wrote anything?
On my 1600mhz corsairs i can bott at 54-55 so the problem is with g-skills and bios thats all!! Cause after making BCKL to 98 i dont have any dual boot. Still is anoying that i cant run normally 100BCLK and native mems speed.

ALSO i have disabled EUP 2013 and still i have dual boot. U r saying that im a liar? Why would i lie?

Also 1.8b7 ..but it's working now no problem, maybe if I flash again with 1.8b10 it will hang again. I just stick with 1.8b7 ;)

When you prepared the stick,
after that have you booted from USB to flash the BIOS.
Have you done it?
If yes:
Did you pickup Option N2: "Proceed with Update"
and not Option N3: "Flash back to prevision BIOS" ? by accident/error?

And did you see the flashing process?
Also what was your USB drive letter when you prepare the stick within windows?

Thank you Svet for summing it all up and making it easier.  I'll try this tonight and see if it work's or if I get an error similar to the screenshot the MSI support rep had.  Has anyone tried this yet that had the save or MEI issues?

I have a board that came with 1.4 bios stock. I'm on 187 now but it there a reason for me to update the ME1164?
Maybe better overclocking? I do have multipler controll in windows.

CPU status shows my 2600K is locked so i guess i have a max 52x muli but i dont care about that. My cpu can only do 4.8 at 1.4 atm. I dont wanna go higher on the v-core. So i dont think i will ever hit the 5.2 :P

New 1.8B10 Bios
« Reply #349 on: 27-January-11, 08:48:46 »

Hello,

just a little update - as i was sooo happy yesterday evening that the savefreeze was solved - not anymore now.

System crashed 4 times since then, BSOD with very diffrent Stops - this is far worse than with Bios 1.4.

Anyone else having this behaviour - or all happy ?

Cheers
