BIOS : Phoenix Bios for [[AmiloA]] [[Laptop]]

This bios is really poor, no real choice beside time and boot device selection

Phoenix Bios 4.0 R 6
Fujitsu Notebook BF Y26 Bios 1.02
UUID Number : ...
SN : .
CPU : AMD Mobile XP 1400+
Mem: 639Kb System / 222Mb Ext / 256Kb Cache SDRam

Chipset M1533 PCI to ISA bridge 'ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support' / 'IDE, ATA AND ATAPI Block devices' / 'ALI M15x3 chipset Support'

There are some updates (Sep./02 V1.09 ACPI-able) of Bios (but it will be fine to replace it with an opensource ones)

BIOS Flash-update for Fujitsu Siemens current BIOS V1.10: AMILO AMILO A-6600, A-7600 BFY26011001, BFY26011002

Problems solved:

  • Fixed serial port commulication lose data.
  • Fixed USB 2.0 pcmcia card performance problem.

Known errors, problems and restrictions:

  • If customer upgrades from bios version 1.06 or older the HDD will be

locked if the HDD password is enabled. Solution: Disable HDD password before flashing.

  • Wakeup by scheduler from S4 state does not work.
  • Flashing from BIOS 1.05 to any older version freezes the system

after completion. The user must first remove all power (AC-plug and battery), after this it is possible to use the system with the flashed BIOS version.

Additional information:

  • If the HDD get locked during bios upgrade the customer can set any

passwords to get access to the HDD. There is no need to use a master password.

  • Systems which are delivered without internal floppy disk drive can

boot from USB floppy disk.

  • The USB floppy disk drive will become the first boot device when it

is connected.

  • It is mandatory to use this BIOS version with the new CPUs (2400+

and higher with 512KB 2nd Level Cache).

<bb> i just patched my bios to 1.10 and the great thing: it seams to fix my pcmcia / CardBus wlan issue (system freeze when heavy traffic)

i didn't do any longer tests on heating but as long as i monitore it now there is no big change could be it is a little lower but i am not sure… after a while with 100% cpu it's at 75C, then going down slowly to 71C when i keep having 10-20PU my some-hundred-megs download finished successfully without any problems… i'm gonna do some more stress tests to my wlan card </bb>

<atlantic> coz I think my graphics card freezing since I upgrade 1.05→1.07

<atlantic> 1. boot windows
<atlantic> 2. try to use a Direct3D application, for example, play a movie with  BSPlayer (which is use DirectShow)
<atlantic> 3. Close your notebook (switch into Standby mode)
<atlantic> 4. Switch it on again
<atlantic> 5. Try to use a Direct3D application
