Bios factory reset

Hi,

When I installed ubuntu the keyboard and the mouse stopped working. Making changes in the BIOS to try to fix it I was wrong and I have disabled xhci. And now keyboard not work in bios setup.In the installation of ubuntu I configured the wifi but at the end of the installation it does not connect to the configured wifi and since the keyboard does not work I can not do anything.I would need someone to tell me how to reset the BIOS to factory settings or some alternative method.

Before installing ubuntu, update the bios and install the aero-compute-board.jamGreetings and thank you.

Hi wirtex,

Thank you for your interest the Intel Aero drone.

 

By disabling XHCI, you disabled the USB ports.

 

You should try to revert to the previous BIOS version with the default settings.

 

First, try connecting to Aero via SSH. You have instruction here:

 

https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/08-Aero-Network-and-System-Administration%23netwo... https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/08-Aero-Network-and-System-Administration# networking-access-point-wifi

Then run these commands in the terminal:

rpm -ev aero-bios-01.00.16-r1.corei7_64.rpm   rpm -i aero-bios-01.00.13-r1.corei7_64.rpm   aero-bios-update

You also mentioned that after installing Ubuntu you couldn't connect to WiFi. Make sure you don't connect to wifi during Ubuntu installation.

 

Let me know if you have further questions.

Regards,

thank you very much for your help.

I'll tell you the steps I've followed: I installed the latest version of the bios in Yocto and the jam only with the board, without RTF.

In the installation of ubuntu had keyboard and mouse and during this installation connect the wifi so that ubuntu was updated. Up here all good.

When I finish the installation and after restarting the board the keyboard and mouse no longer worked and the wifi is seen on the screen that is not connected.

In the bios change, without much success, the configuration of the usb ... and from here the usb does not work neither in ubuntu, nor in the bios. I tried to connect with the wifi but without success.

My question is: Is there any way to recover the factory settings of the bios without wifi or keyboard? Thank you.

Hi wirtex,

 

 

I'm sorry I wasn't very clear. I gave you the instructions in my previous message.

 

Since you disabled the ports, you will have to connect to the drone via SSH and revert to the previous BIOS version with the default settings (the ports will be enabled and then you will be able to use the keyboard and mouse). Let's just try to solve this issue first.

 

Follow the instructions https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/08-Aero-Network-and-System-Administration# networking-access-point-wifi here to connect through ssh and then run these commands in the terminal: rpm -ev aero-bios-01.00.16-r1.corei7_64.rpm rpm -i aero-bios-01.00.13-r1.corei7_64.rpm aero-bios-update

 

After doing this then your ports should work. Let me know how it goes.

 

 

Regards,

 

Alexandra

When installing ubuntu I did not get to install aero kernel and therefore the aero hotpot is not configured so I can not do ssh as far as I know.

Does the board have no hardware reset system, some combination of the power key, a reset pin or something similar?

So is there no hope to recover the BIOS to its original state without USB or Wi-Fi? There is no other way?

The problem that I need the board urgently and intel has no stock ...

Hi,

Can anyone help me?

Is there no way to reset the bios by hardware? All the boards have a hardware recovery system. Intel Aero does not have it?

Any intel engineer has any solution?

I can not believe that intel has not allow for this problem.

Thanks and regards.

Hi wirtex,

 

 

There is no way to reset the bios by hardware. You mentioned the board does not have the the Aero kernel on Ubuntu. If you have a screen connected, did the Aero board boot? You also mentioned installing the jam file for the Aero Compute board only. You should be able to access the terminal via the power + UART port.

 

 

Take a look at section 3.6.1 of the Aero Compute Board Guide:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/drones/development-drones/intel-aero-compu...

 

 

If you are able to establish a serial connection, please finish installing the Aero kernel and re-flashing the bios.

Hi wirtex,

 

 

I apologize for the delay, I did a test and the serial communication will not work as it requires some configuration. I sent you an email regarding this thread, let me know if you do not receive it.
