Hiya folks

Anyone happen to have an ln2 bios for this board? The one here seems corrupted https://xdevs.com/guide/e299ocg/#biost

tia and happy benching!

I downloaded this yesterday in case it gets lost or if I can someday afford x299
It seems to be fine but I had to use newer 7zip


right click on zipped folder (XOC_BIOS_103.zip)
cursor down to 7zip
cursor to open archive
window pops up, enter password
password is: E299_DARK
7zip opens, click on blue line at top left saying EXTRACT
if file was in downloads folder the unzipped file will appear there as well

Here is my download / above is direct link to original

BIOS 103 Only supports SKL-X, FYI.

Really, so no XOC bios for KBL-X publicly available and no word on XP support ?
The error you were getting "the bios in this system is not fully acpi compliant" when trying to boot your XP ssd's/hdd's  is very common and is likely caused by such a drastic change of hardware between the install platform and the EVGA X299 platform, memory especially.

I put this text doc together outlining some of these issues. The Dark does have an asmedia sata controller that should be legacy OS compliant so installing XP SHOULD be possible.
It is also important to note that you must be using the proper sata port that corresponds to this controller
