NEO Z64-W: BIOS

#2
Thanks for this. Attached is a shot of my main BIOS screen - I guess it's version 1.53? Can you confirm that the version 1.83 that you have posted is a newer version? Cheers.

I've now noted your comments elsewhere about contacting Minix support by email, and have done that. Good quick response! It can do no harm to repeat it here: "If you need assistance, it’s quicker to email our customer support team – support@minix.com.hk – rather than sending me private messages on the forum. "

hi.. yes you can install windows 10 x86 or 32 bit only. x64 wont work at all because minix z64w bios supports 32 bit windows 10 only as per my experience.

Dear users and support,
It seems there was another way to update BIOS from W10, but the files are not available now (see quoted info below).
I have some difficulties to access BIOS (and HDMI is not working in my device) and this method would update it directly from Windows.

Dear all NEO Z64-W users,

Here is the official V1.83 BIOS for Z64-W:
http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=Z64W_V1.83_BIOS.zip

1.) This BIOS disabled the ESRT service using by Microsoft update service to avoid wrong BIOS update being pushed to our devices.

Update procedures:
1.) Download the V1.83 BIOS zip package
2.) Extract this package to your Windows' local storage, e.g. Desktop
3.) Run the "update.bat" by double-clicking it
4.) Choose "Yes" to proceed when Windows prompts for your administrative rights
5.) Patiently wait for the update to complete, DO NOT disconnect the power during the process or the BIOS will be corrupted!
6.) Restart the system to take effect, please notice that the system will restart for several times before re-entering the OS.

Regards,
Team MINIX.
Have anybody the ZIP (not RAR) BIOS file (Z64W_V1.83_BIOS.zip) with "update.bat" file to update BIOS directly from Windows?

Thanks in advance
Belmy
