i will use this as a collection of test bioses/tools/info targeted towards Raptorlake + z69/790

NOTE for Z690: You must update ME on your Z690 to properly support raptorlake (if you are on dual bioses then you need to do this to both bioses)

1) d/l and install ME driver

2) update ME with ME Update Tool (I know there are newer versions but its not up on Asus official site yet so >= this version is fine)
https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/03CHIPSET/MEUpdateTool_16.1.25.1885_T.zip

3) update to Latest BIOS of your choice

Note 2 for Z690: i have some Z690s that are already LOW in battery so you are advised to use a new Battery during this upgrade.

Hi,

where can you download the latest version of ME - 16.1.30.2264v4 and BIOS 0601 for Asus MAXIMUS Z790 FORMULA  motherboard?

thank you for the help.

Is there a new beta bios for z790 Formula ?

I think you may have the wrong .cap file for Z790 Apex (NOT Encore)? Its listed as "0005" not "0501" and I can't use it in the flash utility, it is unrecognized as a BIOS file either as it is unzipped or renamed.

Also the Google drive links are broken for 1601.

I think the ME version is also 16.1.30.2264 currently on the encore board anyway. Might be wrong about that.

Does the Beta BIOS "0601" include the ME Firmware update or will I need to install that separately beforehand? I know some of the new BIOS files already included them, but Safedisk's recent post on the new Test BIOS files asks you to install the ME firmware beforehand. Thank you for your hard work!

1601? All I see when I click on the Z790-F link is some old 0804 BIOS or something…
