I just got a 7130 that I ordered 2 months ago in today. We have another one we've been testing and its garbage.

I noticed this one is running a lot smoother but it has A06 BIOS....can we find this anywhere? Brian?

Hallo,

wie binde ich die Treiber ein?

Installs the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (AHCI) driver version 12.9.0.1001 for Intel® NUC.


Which file to choose

Download the driver (STOR_Win7_8_8.1_12.9.0.1001.exe) and one of the following F6 Driver Diskettes (depending on your operating system):

STOR_Win7_8_8.1_12.9.0.1001_f6flpy-x86.zip for 32-bit versions of the operating system
STOR_Win7_8_8.1_12.9.0.1001_f6flpy-x64.zip - for 64-bit versions of the operating system

Yes! My device has been working great. Is this enough to be able to send the old one back to get the a new one with A06? I am ready to do this if this is my only route.

I have the A06 bios and it will not save you from any of the problems mentioned on this site. The device is usable but it still has all the problems more or less often. When the device runs without problems though it is an amazing product so I really hope it is fixable by Dell.

I installed the Intel Rapid Storage Technology release 12.9.0.1001 from here..

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/23538/eng/STO...

and turned the Linked Power Management back on to save the battery (reboot required) and I have not had any hang problems.  I have not had time to look at the battery usage, but I am hoping that they are back down.

I installed this update and enabled it and my freezing is back, so it does not work for me.  I have once again disabled it.

It's so disappointing the new driver OR the bios A06 do not solve our issues. emoticon.Crying.title

Let me check on why that was never promoted to support.dell.com.   We have a newer BIOS that will be posted soon - I'm checking on the version that will actually go to the web though.  I'll follow up here.

Yeah...I called support today and entered a TT. 

 

I have the 7139 Windows Image with all of the TPM stuff on my 7130 Venue.  I am having them re-image my Venue to the correct 7130 image...I really did not want to have to deal with all of that extra software/drivers/etc that will never work and will probably continue to bog down my system logs and who knows what in terms of overall performance.

 

maybe they will also update the BIOS to a newer version along the way. emoticon.BigSmile.title

Here's something about low virtual memory and limiting space causes freezes and crashes http://www.ehow.com/how_4693423_fix-low-virtual-memory.html
