Microcode injection

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi....I have a Gigabyte motherboard GA-EP35-DS3R. Thing is, I have a Xeon X5270 on its way to be installed on this board. However, I have to add new microcode to the BIOS in order to get the full performance of the processor. Here where the problem came, I tried to use MMtool to insert new microcode to my bios file, EP35DS3R.F4, but it won't load the file. Someone on the internet said to just change the ".F4" to ".ROM" instead, when I did that, MMtool gave me error "Error loading ROM image (100003h)". Please help me... or if will it affects the performancec if I don't insert new microcode?

EP35DS3R.F4

As far as I can see from googling you have more problems than the microcode update. That motherboard is LGA775 socket, but the xeon you have coming is LGA771, you need a hardware mod to get it to fit.
