I use the 4Mb flash SST25VF040B. The I210-CS port is SGMII and connect to a SGMII switch(KSZ9477STXI). When I find in the image folder named 513655, there are only two image: 8Mb and 16Mb. Which image should I choose? no image for 4Mb.
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

I see the changes relative to 3.11,
1 does it mean that the 4Mb flash doesn't support firmware upgrade???
2 And there is no image for 4Mb in SGMII folder, which means the flash must be 8Mb or 16 Mb for SGMII mode??
3. I connect the I210 to the SGMII switch(KSZ9477STXI) and the flash is 4Mb, which image should I choose. There is no 4Mb image in serdes folder. I have read 2.16 in FAQ, but nothing about flash size.
it is strange. I download this link for NVM images:
and the result is as same as the image I gived above. Which image is for 4Mb in serdes folder in the picture as follow:
Thanks for your reply.
Paraphrasing our previous note, the i210 Twisted_pair, Transitional_images, and Fiber modes files, which are unmentioned on your first interaction as we cited, have 4 Mb Production NVM images.
The image that you have provided on your previous post can be found on the first communication.
