Configuring the VTC 1010 BIOS

To be able to boot from a USB flash drive, please put the USB controller in XHCI mode, like this :

(Del at boot) -> Advanced -> USB Configuration -> USB Mode -> XHCI Mode


Updating the VTC 1010 BIOS

64 bit BIOS update
BIOS updates for the VTC 1010 are available on the Nexcom FTP 64 bit BIOS Web site. You will need the BIOS update utility found in the AfuEfi64/ directory as well as the 64 bits BIOS image itself, e.g. MV11B110.rom
32 bit BIOS update
BIOS updates for the VTC 1010 are available on the Nexcom FTP 32 bit BIOS Web site. You will need the BIOS update utility found in the afuefi32.rar file as well as the BIOS image itself, e.g. MV11A109.rom ( md5=f5ccb5284ca5bd8668fa1031067dad27 ).


The BIOS update itself may be performed through the following steps:

64 bit BIOS update
  • Copy the AfuEfix64.efi BIOS update utility and BIOS image (e.g. MV11A110.rom) to a FAT16 or FAT32 formatted USB Flash Drive, and safely eject it.
32 bit BIOS update
  • Unpack the BIOS update utility
    • On a Linux distribution, this may be achieved through the unrar command, e.g.
      unrar x afuefi32.rar
      Note that you may need the non-free version of unrar package to successfully unpack the BIOS update utility found in the RAR archive file.
  • Copy the AfuEfi.efi BIOS update utility and BIOS image (e.g. MV11A109.rom) to a FAT16 or FAT32 formatted USB Flash Drive, and safely eject it.
Then
  1. Insert that USB drive into one of the VTC 1010 USB ports.
  2. Power on the VTC 1010 and enter the BIOS Setup utility by pressing the F2 or DEL key on the keyboard attached to the VTC 1010.
  3. Move to the Boot page using your cursor keys.
  4. Highlight Boot Option #1 using your cursor keys.
  5. Change it to boot from the UEFI shell by pressing ENTER, then select UEFI: Built-in EFI Shell using the cursor keys, then press ENTER again. The UEFI built-in shell should now be set for Boot Option #1.
  6. Save the new settings by moving to the Save & Exit BIOS setup page, select Save Changes and Exit, press ENTER, select Yes and press ENTER again.
  7. The VTC 1010 should have rebooted itself in to the built in UEFI shell.
  8. Once reboot is complete, you should see a Shell> prompt.
  9. Enter map -r to make sure the device mapping table is up-to-date.
    • This is really only necessary if you plugged a device, such as a USB drive, after entering the UEFI shell.
  10. The USB drive will likely be mapped to fs0.
  11. Enter the directory on the USB drive containing BIOS update files by entering fs0:. Notice the trailing colon ":".
  12. You can list the files using the UEFI shell ls command.
  13. Update the BIOS using the following command:
    • upgrade of 64 bit BIOS (or upgrade from 64 to 32 bit BIOS):
      AfuEfix64 MV11B110.rom /P /B /N /K /X /S /SHUTDOWN
      where MV11B110.rom should be modified to match the BIOS image you are using.
    • upgrade of 32 bit BIOS (or upgrade from 32 to 64 bit BIOS):
      AFUEFI MV11A109.rom /P /B /N /K /X /S /SHUTDOWN
      where MV11A109.rom should be modified to match the BIOS image you are using.
    • Run the AFUEFI command without command line options for further usage instructions, including descriptions of the command line options.
  14. The VTC 1010 will shutdown once the BIOS update completes due to the use of the /SHUTDOWN command line option.
  15. Unplug the USB drive containing the BIOS update files.
  16. Plug in the USB drive containing your Tizen IVI image, if you are using one.
  17. Power on your VTC 1010 and enter the BIOS settings again.
    • If VTC1010 doesn't start again, unplug/wait a few seconds/replug power connector (VTC1010 rear panel)
  18. The Project Version on the Main BIOS settings page should match the version of the BIOS you just installed.
  19. Go to the Boot page and verify that the device containing your Tizen IVI image is selected for Boot Option #1 in the same UEFI built-in shell was selected earlier.
  20. Save the BIOS settings again, and boot normally.
