HI

Is there a way to reset the BIOS to factory default without accessing the BIOS? I made a change in the BIOS a while back and now I have forgotten what I changed. The problem is, no USB device is now working, so I am unable to get the BIOS because the keyboard is not working.

Edited my previous post to remove the allow-hotplug and add the mtu values for the wired LAN section of /etc/network/interfaces - I was seeing weird issues where connections to the LattePanda were intermittently being reset, this appears to have cured it.

Please post the output of "cryptsetup benchmark".
Although there is no official image, I'm glad people are working on Linux for the lattepanda, and I'm interested to know how it performs on that particular benchmark.
(I assume it's similar to the up board results)

i had the same problem, there no 'simple' way to "reset" the bios, the only way is to refresh it again directly on the bios chip using bios programmer card.

I used this guide: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=386
bought the bios programmer on eBay with a cable, this is just few dollars here is the one I bought: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Programmer- ... 2369147169?

and here you can get the explanation about the bios programmer and the drivers is there also on youtube, see his description.

it toke 5 minutes to flash it with that card used windows 10 64bit.

hopefully this information helped u, I spent many hours looking for solution.

cheers.

Does anyone successfully install Linux on a 2G/32GB version of Lattepanda ?

The only distribution of Linux I can install is Debian 9.0.0.

Ubuntu installation fails because of Ubiquity crash. And the text mode installation (alternate CD) is no more available in latest version of Ubuntu.

The 32 bit UEFI requires some modification on the installation files (add /efi/boot/bootia32.efi). And this does not always works.

In addition, GNOME and LXCE desktop do not work. Only XFCE.

Has there been no luck so far installing Lubuntu, XUbuntu or standard Ubuntu on the 2G/32GB Z8350 yet?

I have tried numerous times, with Etcher, Rufus and Unetbootin for making the images. Also I tried all three pieces of software with both Lubuntu, Xubuntu and Ubuntu (all version 16.04, also the beta-version linked on page 3 in this thread) without luck. I can find the boot device in the boot menu, but picking them will simply be ignored and it will continue to Windows a little more slowly than usual.
