    I can change the boot sequence in UEFI. I'm using "safe and exit" and commit it with "y", but the configuration isn't saved. After reboot it's still the old one.

    My Debian boot loader is show in UEFI and when hitting F7 at startup. So how can I save the changed boot sequence ??

    Hi, welcome to the forum. From what you said, I guess the big problem you meet is that the LattePanda can not boot to system and stuck on the BIOS. Am i right?
    Was the problem occurred after the Debian installed? :?:
    Looking forward to your updates.

    Hi, yes, it tries booting in what ever. Only short time a black screen is shown and then it reboots again. And yes, it's happend after installing Debian.
    First I have installed Ubuntu and the direct boot into Ubuntu GRUB2 was working. But Debian has written his grub somewhere.

    But debian boots without any issue when I select it from boot menu witch is shown after hitting F7 while booting.

    I don't know, why I can't save the new boot order in the UEFI

    Yes, Debian runs perfect on it and sure, I have searched the whole web, but nothing found.

    It's your board and you should know why I can't save the boot sequence change in UEFI. What do you think to try it by yourself ?? Boot into the UEFI, change boot sequence, save & boot again and you will see boot sequence isn't changed.

    Yeah, we also decide to try it and could you please show us more details?
    1.The Debian download link and the version info.
    2. How did you install the Debian.
    3. The board version like "S70CRxxxx...." which you can find on the sticker attached to the 20 pins!
    Any info can post here . We will try to build the same application scenario.
    Many Thanks! :)

    with bios DF-BI-7-S70CR200-CC34E-004-D is still not possible save boot order, but as workaround is possible change bootorder in booted GNU/Linux using:

    Code: Select all

    sudo efibootmgr --bootorder HEXNUMBER
    as HEXNUMBER use one of more (separated with , character), current bootorder and HEXNUMBER for existing items show simple running:

    Code: Select all

    efibootmgr
    Xubuntu 18.04 64bit @ LattePanda 2GB/4GB S70CR200-CC34E
