I try to update to BIOS 1.8 and when I double click on the update.bat file, a w10 window pops up for you to select the program to use, and then it doesn't update. I have w10 version 2018.
Thanks Torpe.

Mr Admin and Moderator, there seems to be some troubles with the .zip contents in the v1.8 update.

When I double click the .bat file I have the same trouble that Torpe mentioned above. I edited the .bat file and it seems to be wrongly coded as its content is "AfuEfix64.efi CHT0A160.bin /p /b /n /x" when I think the correct command was suposed to be "AfuEfix64.efi CHT0A170.bin /p /b /n /x"

I did not tried to correct the command because after discovering this I was upset about the file name as CHT0A170.bin was suposed to be v1.7 and the v1.80 was suposed to be CHT0A180.bin. I checked the file in both v1.7 and v1.8 zip files and the file CHT0A170.bin has the exact same size in booth cases. Was this file zipped wrongly or is it right?

afuwinx64.exe is execute on Windows desktop.
afuefix64.efi commend is only execute on UEFI shell.

Extract the package to the root directory (not inside a folder) of a USB thumb drive - FAT32 formatted.
press "F11" on your keyboard during boot to enter the boot device menu.
Select "Built-in UEFI Shell" when you see the below boot device menu and hit "Enter" on your keyboard.
Type "fs3:" and then hit "Enter" to read from the USB drive (you may also type "dir" and hit "Enter" after this step to verify all the upgrade files are there).
Type "afuefix64.efi CHT0A180.bin /p /b /n /x” and hit "Enter" to execute the upgrade package, it shall take a few minutes and upon completion.

Update the BIOS on the Windows desktop. You have to copy all the files to the Windows desktop and type the following command or execute update.bat

afuwinx64.exe CHT0A170.bin /P /B /N /X
or
afuwinx64.exe CHT0A180.bin /P /B /N /X

Heyho,

The download links above are not working for me either from work network or phone. Could be the strange 9009 port number but are they working for other folks? And is there any other way to get to them?

Thanks!

In comparison to the BIOS V1.7, V1.8 added "Booting the operating system from a USB device(USB stick or external HDD)".
Because of the limitation of the internal eMMC(only 32GB) of NEO Z83-4, some users expect to install the OS into an external HDD or a USB stick with larger storage space.

Please note, this feature is ONLY available when you use the USB 3.0 port (NOT USB 2.0 port) on the NEO Z83-4.

For example, you can install an OS into an external HDD or USB stick (USB thumb), and attach this external HDD or USB stick to the USB 3.0 port on the NEO Z83-4, start the NEO Z83-4 and press F11, select the external HDD or USB stick option to boot that OS.
