BIOS 042-043 for DZ68DB - still issues with USB3 and LAN

About a week ago I decided to try the BIOS 042 after the previous 040 had bricked my board.

Now on a new board running Bios 032 I managed to upgrade to 042, and everything seemed OK:


I also selected fast boot options in Bios and was, surprise, able to use USB3 to copy some 30GB worth of files to a admittedly usb2.0 drive. I was about to post a success message to this board, when...


Today I found that wol wasn't working on this board anymore (with the same settings with which wol works otherwise, bios, powermangement, etc.)


I went back to BIOS to check. In order to do that I had to enter bios config by holding the power button down until the board beeps (because of fast boot).

All was OK in BIOS, as far as I can tell.

Now back in OS, checked the adapter settings (wake on magic packet, wake on magic packet from power off state, wake on pattern match). Still no WOL.


Now I also found that usb30 device cannot start. This is the same behaviour as in BIOS 032 (USB30 doesn't start if fast boot is chosen).


I don't know how wol and usb30 are connected, but this BIOS still hasn't fixed the USB30 issue and has now broken wol?? Or is it that entering bios without doing anything arbitarily disables the usb3 device, but only on thursdays? Maybe it'll work again tomorrow?

You can't disable usb3 in bios completely, which I would gladly do, since it seems mostly useless, but that doesn't work, it still pops up in device manager.
