@holyburger, the BIOS file download link is correct. Can you send the operation video to techsupport@lattepanda.com? we will help check it.
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

Yeah - this just doesn't work. Delta 432 GR200. Same "eFuitX64.efi is not recognized as an internal or external command..." error as everyone else.

1. Your instructions and screenshots above are inaccurate. "eFruitX64 /u ..." or is it "eFruiteX64.efi /u ..." - Not sure the file extension is even relevant in the EFI shell, but details matter when making instructions.
2. Your Readme files at the link posted above to GitHub, has an entire section at step 9 with a file not included in the rar file. Do I need to do this step with my board? Where is this file if it is relevant to me???

"Use the “Tab” key to fast choose “AfuEfix64.efi” and “BS-7-S70KR200-K65A-B1A.Bin”, and Input “/p /b /n” .(DON'T need to input "/p /b /n" if you are reflashing LattePanda Delta) Then press “Enter” ;(The files' name could be different according to the BIOS type you choosed)"

3. I accidentally used a NTFS USB drive not named "WINPE" as I initially used the steps from this thread, everything failed exactly the same way as when I used a FAT32 drive named "WINPE". I guess this leads to a question of why include these steps in the GitHub Readme, yet not here if they are irrelevant... or are they?
4. Your instructions above in this thread call to use a "/faildelay" switch as the end of the eFruitX64 command, the Readme on GitHub does not. Is this required or not?

In the end, since I still have not been successful, I am left wondering why this is not just a switch inside of BIOS. Every other X86 board I have has this option. Could you not just release a bootable firmware update utility that just adds this function like every other X86 board manufacturer in the world? Alternately - you could clarify the issues multiple people here are having and fix your instructions or perhaps not have duplicate instructions in multiple places that do not align.

Hi

I have S70GR200 and I have tried this link:
https://github.com/LattePandaTeam/Latte ... LattePanda%employee monitoring software%20Alpha%26Delta/LattePanda%20Delta/S70GR200%20Delta%20Auto%20power-on

Everything went fine, flashing was successful.

But when I pull the power cable out and plug it back in (simulating power outage) the device continously lights blue while the red light is flashing strong and weak light like a police car. This never happened before the flashing. This goes on for 3 seconds, then the red lights continously, the blue is flashing every 2 seconds. After this I can turn on manually, but it never turns on automatically.
I have double checked that I downloaded the right files, it was auto power on, not the original.
Please help me out with this :|

So this is still not working, right? No one on delta432 gr200 could get the auto power on working? I tried following all the instrutions thoroughly many times and got no luck.
I would never guess it could be the case when ordering the board, auto power on is so basic... Its very important to my project, @lattepanda are you planning to solve this in the end?

I found a solution for auto booting for Delta.

I reflashing "S70GR200 Delta Auto Power-on.rar" and "(Compatible with LINUX)S70GR200 ..." but both not working with auto booting.
Then I found this tutorial in Korea.

You need to change setting from "BOOT" from bios menu like image.
"Machine Status AC/Battery In" to "Power On"

It works. I flashed with "(Compatible with LINUX)S70GR200 ..." but I am not sure both image works.
But I didn`t know it needs change setting from boot menu, because no one from LATTEPANDA told us like that. Its very ridiculous. Why they didn`t include this on the tutorial?

I recall that this used to be only possible using the JST 4P connector. Is this new procedure compatible with the USB-C power source?

Edit: I've tried and the answer is yes.
