2) Im unable to install Intel Desktop Utilities v. 3.2.2.046. After the installator starts and performs initial check, it ends up w/ error message that this software can be installed only with Intel mainboards. Any idea what might be wrong?
FYI: other threads in this forum report that can be caused by enabling the EUFI mode in the BIOS. For now I would recommend to use one of the freeware tools to measure the temp.

Hello. I updated to bios 0045 and everything works for me. UEFI boot works and my chassis front usb 3.0 port is working. I have none of the issues that you mentioned. Running Windows 8 using UEFI mode.
Device manager shows no missing drivers.
I only have issue with IDU.
Seems that it is already running but i don't see it in the task bar when i press the arrow.
I do see iptray.exe "Tray application for Intel(R) Desktop Utilities" in Task Manager.
I will try to help you.
- Disable PS/2 port in BIOS. Install all drivers from Download Center.
- This issue occurs with UEFI boot enabled but operating system installed with non UEFI mode.
- Don't connect KB/MS to the yellow ports, they are used for charging and in the manual it also mentions to not use them for KB/MS. I guess a keyboard or mouse can act weird when connected to a charging port. If you really want to use them on those ports you can turn off charging for those ports in BIOS. I use a PS/2 keyboard and a USB mouse, works great. When i had a USB keyboard it worked great too.
disklikeyou: thank you for this reply. I tried to update BIOS to 0045 however when I did that, I was unable to boot from any device. Tried several config options including reseting BIOS to default etc. Then I switched back to 0039 (where it was before I believe) and now it works again as before, w/ the same issues.
Not sure why, however I was unable to boot from any device when having UEFI disabled in BIOS. I might had even older BIOS so I can try to reinstall OS w/o UEFI and do some more testing.
Will definitely reconnect my devices to different USB slots and also I should probably download the BIOS manual and RTFM a little bit.
Thank you again, will update this post as soon as I have anything new.
