    Programming i210 Blank Flash w/ EEUPDATE & LANConf

    Jason.Bean

      Greetings,

       

      I'm following the directions from document 513655. Running EEUPDATE shows my two i210 controllers (one working, and one blank). Using both EEUPDATE & LANConf to attempt to program the blank flash results in a timeout error that occurs after 5+ minutes of the tool claiming that it is writing to flash.

      LANCOnf gives the following: c86a0004 - "Timeout Error" when programming i210 blank flash

       

      I'm using the following versions on an Intel Atom E3815 processor on Ubuntu 16.04.2

      eeupdate64e: EEUPDATE v5.26.17.11

      lanconfig64e: LANConf v1.26.17.11

       

      lshw shows the driver as: driver=igb driverversion=5.3.0-k

       

      I've tried flashing with multiple 4Mb files onto a 4Mb flash On Semi LE25U40CMC

      Below is the eeupdate log:

      I've attempted to access the most recent tools in document 348742 below but get "Access Denied: Privileged Access Required"

      I have R&DC privileges  and was able to download the I210 flash images.

      Any suggestions you have are appreciated.

       

      Enjoy,
