Even my ICS boots OK with eMMC cache disabled, I verified the BIOS and saw that Intel Trusted Execution Engine is 01.01.02.1133.
Then I tried the BIOS recovery (F4) from the Power Button menu - nothing happened, the ICS just boots into Windows.
Then I tried BIOS update (F7) from Power Button menu - this worked but the version of TXE did not change.
Tried again to update the BIOS - the same.
Also noticed another difference, the version of the board is H67490-303.
So now I have 2 questions:
1. How to do a proper update of the BIOS to have TXE = 01.02.00.1149?
2. If the TXE is updated to 01.02.00.1149, will the ICS work properly with eMMC cache enabled?
I was able to do a BIOS recovery after I used another USB stick (freshly formatted). Now I have the new TXE. I will test eMMC with cache enabled and post the results.
After 15 minutes:
Nothing new. With eMMC cache enabled, the system freezes after a while. So Intel offered us the same workaround that MikeBT found and named it "the guide". So this is the solution?
There is another option. As the Windows key is in the BIOS, if you want to start fresh, you can download the ISO from the Media Creation Tool. Follow the instructions on this page: Intel® Compute Stick STCK1A32WFC — Windows® 10 Upgrade Instructions
I have similar issue as many others: Problem after updating to Windows 10. After many reboots ect. my Intel Stick is now stuck on "Just a moment...". I have left it for hours and tried again and again, but it never moves on. I also tried to enble/disable network, ect. in bios.
Well anyway, it says in this document from this post FC Windows TH2 update instructions.pdf that you should update the bios. I did that - to FC0031.BIO - from Download BIOS Update [FCBYT10H.86A] . All Flashing image for XXX is [done] succesfully. BUT according to sted 4. in the document is says:
"...view Intel® Trusted Execution Engine. The version should be 01.02.00.1149 if the BIOS Recovery was successful. If it is NOT 01.02.00.1149, perform the BIOS Recovery again...".
My version stays on (I tried several times):
Could this be the problem??? That the bios is not updated?
When flashing the bios it says:
Current revision: FCBYT10H.86A.0031.2015.1027.1417
Updating to revision: FCBYT10H.86A.0031.2015.1027.1417
- yes, they are the same!
Could it be that there is an error in the bios upgrading process???
hello jma73, I have the same bios version as you, same intel trusted execution as you.
I managed to upgrade to windows 10. It hanged several times (rebooted several times)
did you unchecked the eMMC write cache as stated in the tutorial?
to remember: boot in failsafe, in the peripherals menu choos disks/Kingston > properties > startegies
No, I did not uncheck the eMMC write cache! I will try that and return with the result.
Thanks for the tip!
By the way: failsafe - is that the same as (4) safemode? Because I do not see failsafe in menu for F8 during startup. Anyway, with safemode it still hangs when it starts up again - "Just a moment...".
Just doing a BIOS update won't update the TXE. Do a BIOS Recovery and the TXE will be updated. I did that and the Windows 10 upgrade proceeded normally after that.
Oh, now I understand. This guide will just assure to have a successful update process. It does not assure that the stick will work properly afterwards .
to jma74: I also had troubles managing to boot in safe mode correctly. At some point I dirtily shutdown the stick when booting to windows to make it faulty and at next boot when pressing F8 it proposed me to boot in safe mode with networking (it was a different screen than the usual one while pressing F8 at boot for recovery). Then you enter safe mode where you can access the desktop and disable write cache. keep on trying and google a bit on how to enter safe mode, but once you have done it it should be fine. It did the trick for me. Good luck with that, hope it will be fine for you.
to Ned: I did both a BIOS update AND a BIOS recovery with latest 31 bios and still have the same 1120 TXE :-) however windows 10 upgrade worked at some point... I think the guide is somehow not really precise... TXE does not seem to be affected by BIOS upgrade or recovery or whatever.
Hmmmm, should I try this or not? Just got my new Intel Stick replacement. My old one is horrible after I updated to the Threshold 2. Will this freeze my intel stick again or not? Is this pure legit or not?
J.E. Thank you. I got into that menu, and have tried F4 and F5; Safemode, Safemode with networking. Without positive result. It still gets stuck on "Just a moment..." - and never comes to login screen.
I think I am there where I will return this device or maybe give it a last shot and try to install Windows 8.1 on it again...
Also it is so painful to try and get into F8 menu during boot. Most of the time it does not react - or I get an error... I need to try 5-10 times before it happens...
Hello xian...so what did you decide to do? I am expecting my replacement stick in a few days and don't know if I want to carry out the update. did you update to threshold 2? If so, how did it go? Thanks
what I did wrong when recover bios was i missed one step. First shut down computestick after bois recovery then unplug AC adaper (remove power).
