  • 4.09 - LOCKED - Original BIOS shipped from GPD; official flash file not provided from GPD

Well, miraculously my MicroPC booted up (it was turned on with a screen that stayed black after upgrading the bios 2 days ago). I turned it on once more, still black screen, then after 20 minutes or so, the GPD logo appeared and it booted up.

Just a mistery.

But luckely the bios update worked after all and I now have the unlocked BIOS, which turned out to have some features disabled that needed to be enabled for proper usage. Like enabling the 4 cores, which also made the “Virtualization” option available and I also enabled Intel VT-d.

Performance in my VM is now many times faster. I need a 32-bit OS to run the old software that is used for my RS232 connection, the sole reason I bought the MicroPC.

The BIOS versions listed here are not the newest ones, it seems. They are only the newest ones offered for download on the GPD page.

I think GPD should update their MicroPC downloads.

@waitasecond - updated!

I’m using the 4.15 BIOS but there is no WOL option. How to activate it ?

Where are the newer bioses officially? How do you find these? The latest I can see is 4.13 and I’m wary of flashing from unofficial sources. Thanks

Hmm. No one? Are these forums dead?

I guess that answers that then
