Hi, I've recently installed Win7 x64 on my new DP55KG and I'm expecting some quite boring issues.
First of all, most unsuitable, I've on every boot a message from event log that says :
"Le chargement de \SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\EBIOS32.SYS a été bloqué en raison d’une incompatibilité avec ce système. Contactez l’éditeur de votre logiciel pour obtenir une version compatible du pilote."
The SMI driver is not compatible on x64 OS ? So I can't use the .exe flash utility to update my bios ("This program is unable to continue. Internal system error: There is a programming or internal problem"), worst I can't use the Intel DCC (XTU service can't start) or other software that uses SMI to get infos from the motherboard such as cpuz etc... It's incredible for a mobo that is supposed for enthusiast users !!
Up : It might be cause of UEFI boot enabled, so DON'T ENABLE UEFI boot before windows installation if you don't have a partition larger than 2TB you'll avoid problems !
Then the other boring issue is since bioses after the first relased 3206, my computer have to boot twice to load windows. When I push the power button, it starts, I can see some post codes scrolling, it makes a short pause on 66 and when it switches to 69 it restarts and boots normally. I've tested all of bioses from 3456 to the new 4507 and only the first can boot properly. I've tired to unplug all sata devices or increase the sata drive delay but nothing changed.
Does someone else is expecting this ???
An other issue happens when I switch my computer into sleep mode, I've a message in the event log that says :
"Le microprogramme de la plateforme a endommagé la mémoire lors de la précédente transition d’alimentation du système. Recherchez un microprogramme plus récent à utiliser pour votre système."
It happens with every bioses I've tested, all versions, but no problem when the computer gets out of sleeping.
An other issue with the sleep S3 mode : I've overclocked my processor with 160mhz blck and 1.35Vcore dynamic and it's stable on windows with all turbo modes. But when the computer gets out of sleeping, after few seconds, the system hangs (no blue screen) or no display anymore. I could see from Everest that it could be because of the Vcore got reinitialized, above 0.86V in EIST mode.
New issue I've forgotten to mention, sometimes the fullscreen boot logo isn't display in center of the screen, often a little strip can be seen at the right side of screen...
Some other problems like low speed fans can't start from cold boot because of not enough power (http://communities.intel.com/message/78438), wrong sata port detection (http://communities.intel.com/thread/9432) or bluetooth disabled (http://communities.intel.com/message/81492) but they have been already posted.
If I found new issues, I'll post them here.
