Thanks for the information. I will notify our engineering team about the error 56.
BTW do you have any information from your engineering team about a bios update to address this error?
I haven’t received any information. Let me check if they have plans to release a new BIOS version for the x79 chipset.
Which is the pci device you are trying to use and it is giving you the error code 56?
Oh my, you're kidding me!
I spent a few hours troubleshooting this issue the other day on a DX79SI. I tried clearing the CMOS, swapping the nVidia card for an AMD, removing all peripherals, swapping PSU, swapping RAM, recovery BIOS update, removing sound card, re installing Windows, different HDD...
And its a stupid BIOS bug! Argh!
You know what? The USB3 on these boards is an absolute joke. If I have ANY storage device plugged in at boot, it sits at 58 for a few minutes before finally booting...
I can help you to update the Renesas USB 3.0 firmware 4021, that was released for the SR and TO boards only.
I have updated my SI board, and the long boot error is solved.
You can PM me your E-mail, and I will send you the guide how to do it + the firmware 4021 and update program.
Why Intel/Renesas can't release it for the SI board, I don't know. Perhaps they got lazy.
The DX79SR motherboard has a Front and Back version of the USB driver. You could try using them as both motherboards have the same chipsets.
In addition to that, make sure you are running the latest BIOS version available and to make sure all other drivers and products are updated as well.
Hello Sylvia, in order to make the firmware updater work with the DX79SI, I use the "200(front)" version.
The 200(rear) doesn't find any device. Still you have to edit the "update_188.8.131.52.bat file".
I used the following command.
for device 08-00-00:
W200FW36 /srom 0 /address 08-00-00 /write F402103.MEM cfg.ini
for device 02-00-00
W200FW36 /srom 0 /address 02-00-00 /write F402103.MEM cfg.ini
It works for me on the DX79SI. I haven't noticed any adverse effects.
Thanks for the information.
