I want to configure the i210-as from an external SPI. does the i210-as support loading from SPI roms?

 

I connected an external SPI rom to the i210-at and ran eeupdate, but I get a log saying "Only /INVM* and /MAC commands are valid for this adapter." and cannot execute the write command.

Can you please tell me what I am missing?

 

R06801 is unmounted.

R06832,R06833,R06837,C06821 are mounted.

SPI rom:W25Q80DVSSIG-ND

Hello Sreelakshmi1

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

The W25Q80BVSSIG is EOL.
So I used its successor W25Q80DVSSIG

What part is not compatible?

@Sreelakshmi1,

What good is a link to a file on your C drive going to do the user? You need to be pointing them to a file in the Intel cloud.
