BIOS Update

Prerequisites

<USB key>
    ├───H2OFFT-Sx64.efi
    ├───TQMxE38C_5.4.48.0025.02_X64.bin    

Perform BIOS Update

Attention: keyboard layout is US by default in BIOS setup!

  • Insert BIOS-Update-USB Stick to a Starterkit USB port
  • Boot up the system and navigate into the EFI Shell (Boot Manager > Internal EFI Shell)
  • After starting the EFI Shell switch path to the USB stick by typing fs0:. This depends on the amount of connected mass storage devices. With command ls you can check the content of the path.
  • Launch BIOS update
fs0:\> H2OFFT-Sx64.efi <BIOS_Image>.bin –ALL -RA <Enter>

Example

⇒ BIOS will reboot into EFI shell after the update has finished succesfully

  • Leave EFI shell
Shell> exit
  • Select “Boot Manager”
  • Select desired boot device (e.g. Internal HD)
    ⇒ System will reboot from selected boot device

Boot Logo Replacement

This instruction guides you through the procedure of replacing the Bootlogo using the Insyde UEFI/BIOS tool called H2OLRT (Logo Replacement Tool).

Please note that the logo replacement can only be done in the integrated EFI Shell.
Furthermore, this tool is only available on request, please contact support@t1;-group.com.

Prerequisites

Prepare BIOS-Update-USB Stick and add the following components:

  • Logo Replacement Tool (H2OLRT-Sx64.efi)
  • Appropriate BIOS file for your TQ module (e.g. TQMxE38C_5.4.48.0025.02_X64.bin)
  • Picture formated as *.jpg (e.g. example_picture.jpg)

Replace Boot Logo via EFI Shell

The H2OLRT (Logo Replacement Tool)generates a BIOS file that contains the desired Boot Logo instead of the TQ Logo.

  • Insert the BIOS-Update-USB Stick to a Starterkit USB port
  • Boot up the system and navigate into the EFI Shell (Boot Manager > Internal EFI Shell)
  • After starting the EFI Shell switch path to the USB stick by typing fs0:.This depends on the amount of conected mass storage devices; with command ls you can check the content of the path.
  • The generic command and the following example shows how to start the Logo Replacement.
H2OLRT-Sx64.efi –replogo:<SrcBIOSImageName> –logopath:<LogoImagePathName> -logoindex:<IndexNum> –logoconvert:<ConvertNum> –out:<OutBIOSImageName>

Example


H2OLRT-Sx64.efi Variable description

Variable Description
<SrcBIOSImageName> BIOS file in which the logo should be replaced
<LogoImagePathName> Path and name of the replacement picture
<IndexNum> Default index, where the picture must be stored.
e.g. TQMxE38C Logoindex: 0
<ConvertNum> 0 = keep original image's format and dimension.
1 [default] = auto convert the image's format and dimension.
<OutBIOSImageName> path and name of the generated BIOS file


  • Next step is to flash the customized BIOS Binary, please see the BIOS Update section.

Boot from external BIOS

MB-COME6-1

X23
SM Bus CLK 1 2 I2C Bus CLK
SM Bus DAT 3 4 I2C Bus DAT
SM Bus Alert 5 6 3V3
BIOS_DIS0# 7 8 GND
BIOS_DIS1# 9 10 GND

If there is no Jumper present on the BIOS_DIS1# signal the module will load its BIOS from the internal SPI flash.
If there is a Jumper on the BIOS_DIS1# signal (between signal and GND) the module loads its BIOS from the flash in the SPI socket of the carrier board.
