    BIOS reset

    D.KIRCALI

      I am using Ubuntu 16.04. USB 3 camera was being detected as USB2, so I was trying BIOS settings to solve it.

      I have disabled xHCI mode, it disabled only USB connection available. It is not detecting keyboard so I can't go back to BIOS to revert the settings or boot from USB to flash an official BIOS release to revert the changes.

       

      Board boots directly to Ubuntu 16.04 then I can use remote desktop/ssh to control it from another PC.

      1. I have tried putting .fv file in /boot folder. Nothing happens it goes directly (boots) to Ubuntu
      2. I can go to the first BIOS screen by typing this command from Ubuntu:
        systemctl reboot --firmware-setup
        However as no keyboard is detected I can not go any further

      I really don't understand why there is no switch/jumper to reset bios.

      Is there any way to reset the BIOS?

          Hi D.KIRCALI,

          Thank you for reaching out, to better assist you I need additional information. 

          • What Bios version are you using?
          • Are you using the Aero RTF Drone or Aero Compute Board?

            Hi Jesus

             

            • I am using Aero Compute Board
            • Not sure about the Bios version. First Bios screen displays this information:
              • CherryTrail
              • Intel(R) Atom(TM) x7-Z8750 CPU @ 1.60GHz
              • Aero-01.00. 12_Prod

            I hope this info is sufficient.

            Regards

              Hi Dogan,

              Try to update the Bios again with the same version you currently have installed with the commands below. I tested them with the Aero standard image, for Ubuntu you may need to install the rpm with the alien tool. 

              wget https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26500/eng/capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm
              rpm -ivh aero-bios-01.00.13-r1.corei7_64.rpm
              reboot


              Please keep in mind that Ubuntu is currently not supported on Aero. Hope this info helps!

              Regards,
              Jesus

                Dear Jesus

                 

                From the link that you give "capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm" is downloaded

                 

                as there is no file such "aero-bios-01.00.13-r1.corei7_64.rpm", I believe I need to use this command:

                rpm -ivh capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm

                 

                as a result I get this message:

                 

                rpm: RPM should not be used directly install RPM packages, use Alien instead!

                rpm: However assuming you know what you are doing...

                warning: capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 31f7927c: NOKEY

                Preparing...                          ################################# [100%]

                package capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64 is intended for a different architecture

                 

                I also tried:

                sudo alien -i capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm

                 

                and the result:

                warning: capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 31f7927c: NOKEY

                capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64.rpm is for architecture core2_64 ; the package cannot be built on this system

                 

                I also found "aero-bios-01.00.13-r1.corei7_64.rpm" and tried the rpm and alien as before, the result is the same. Any further suggestions?

                 

                I know that Ubuntu is not supported but my problem is that, I can not reset the bios to its factory settings.

                      Can you please PM me as well if there is a solution to resetting the BIOS so that keyboard's are seen by the system?

                        Hi mattgrover,

                        Are you able to ssh into the board? If you can access the command line via ssh by connecting to the Aero's hotspot or your drone is on the same network as your computer, you can do the following commands to flash the Bios, keep a display connected so you can see the progress.

                        aero-bios-update
                        reboot

                        Regards,
                        Jesus
