Hello,

If I build the option rom for my i210(like ipxe),how I can write it to the I210 rom?

The BootUtil only can write the Intel option rom,how to write the third-part option rom?

Thank you very much.

Best Regards

Hello,

Thank you for your respond.

I see the BootUtil only use *.flb file for update the option rom.

How I can build the *.flb file for my own option rom(*.bin file)?

The BootUtil can't use my own *.bin file.

Thank you very much.

Hi,

Good afternoon.

We designed a PCIe LAN card using i210 with an external Flash memory. 

My questions are :

1) Can we develop "our own" option ROM code and store it in the Flash.  After PC power-on, during BIOS POST(PowerOnSelfTest), copy the option ROM code to system RAM and execute the code?

 

2) If we also need the original Intel option ROM code, can the 2 kinds of ROM code exist together in the same Flash?

     And what is the 2 ROM codes' executing prioirty?

 

3) And, how to write "our own" option ROM code (*.bin instead of *.flb) into the external Flash?

 

 

Thanks so much!

Regards,

KK

Hi Carlos_A,

Thank for your kindly reply.

I found the document you showed me but it seems only talking about many option ROM images provided by Intel.

 

My questions are :

1)    Can we develop "OUR OWN" option ROM image and store it in the Flash.  After PC power-on, during BIOS POST(PowerOnSelfTest), "OUR OWN" option ROM image could be copied to system RAM and executed ?

 

2)    If we also need the original Intel option ROM image, can the 2 kinds of ROM images exist together in the same Flash?

       And what is the 2 ROM images' executing prioirty?

 

 

Thanks!

Best Regards,

KK
