When copy/pasting page1 "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" data into NotePad it may produce spaces between sentences, my saved files do not have spaces, see below pic (single lines no spaces)Area-51r2 BIOS key.txt how to download
For R1-R2 etc, 'No instance of an object' usually means the MIO or FIO board doesn't have power, or more likely the double-ended USB cable isn't plugged in at both ends (mthrbrd USB2.0 header & MIO/FIO USB header)
I no longer have my R2 case, I assume u mean FIO PWR1 4pin Molex Peripheral cable? 93CYT

Because u mention a 9pin to fix it, & 9pins tend to mean a USB cable (10pin, 5x5, 1pin blocked off), should be 3RK0N

Those are typically short, & to reach an aftrmrkt retail mthrbrd USB2.0 header, a USB internal extension (adapter)(w/male prongs) can be used with it -or- just purchase a long single 20"-24" cable (search 9PIN INTERNAL USB cable)(here's a 20incher for reference)
Sound about right?
When the Front Panel header cable (3DVC4) is too short to reach new retail mthrbrd panel header, see male-prong extension above to help reach, or look for an internal mthrbrd front panel extension etc as above
While side panels not lighting w/a retail aftrmrkt board is a common problem / issue w/no known cure, the front panel & alienhead should light up
What error?I tried to install the 2.8.9 drive on windows 10 even on compatability mode but it keeps giving me the same error. Should I try to install the software on windows 7? Also which version of the command center have the newer color calibrations for the case lights?
No one's put a list together of which boards work, 1/2 work, or don't work (re: lights). Pretend u just removed your alienboard & installed a new retail board, everything's connected, system turns on, works & u get CmndCntr installed & it works. If no lights come on at all, the board that was chosen isn't compatible for whatever reason. If front lights come on but no sides, it's due to the board choice. If all lights come on you got lucky
Typically I'd check uTube & if I saw someone's mthrbrd swap, whether all their lights turn on or not will be in the video & if not u can message to ask the case light status & get the name/model of the board. Sometimes an image search can lead you to the board used & whether it gave lights, 1/2, or none. I believe I did see an Asus board that produced all case lights (found on youtube) but cant remember the model name or socket type (it was either x299 or a Z390) ... sorry, couldnt be of any more help
I got my hands on a 3DVC4;however, the male end doesn't slot into anything and the female end I imagine goes to the MB? Isn't there some type of conversion male to female or some how remove the pins? I feel like I'm close to solving this but I want your advice so I have less odds of magic smoke lol. Thanks for taking the time to answer questions. I'll attach mb model link, if you could look and give me a part name or something to get 3DCV4 to connect to both mb and the FIO. https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813119152?item=N82E16813119152 mb used in r2 build.Ron, 3DVC4 is cable you want, currently x1 available. 2nd pic = original owner cable 'DVC4', close enough

I didn't think to look at the FIO board micro-text on my saved photos before I posted the other day; the power on button switch routes to what's typically called the Front Panel header (labeled FIO_PWR1), 3DVC4 then routes to your mthrbrd. When mthrbrd swapping, if it's too short, get male-prong extension or get longer generic cable
