  • My two APU4D4s are currently on BIOS 4.13.0.4 and working fine, but I see that there have been some important fixes in the 4.14.x series. While reviewing the upgrade instructions, there is a note about 'preserving the runtime configuration' during the…

    Hi,

    I’m investigating into adding NAS services (samba, nextcloud) and extra storage to my APU4D4.

    First question is about the case. If I plug a SATA disk to the SATA connector, how I am supposed to install the disk? It seems it won’t fit inside the…

    Thanks for the response Michał. Reading the coreboot issue, it seems to also represent what I'm experiencing. It would be nice to get to the bottom of it!

    Interesting... I have encountered this problem only once when I did know the SPI flash was broken and couldn't flash it with the internal programmer.

    Could you please attach a verbose log from flashrom?

    It is actually hard to tell. We have encountered such errors in other apu owners reports, typically it was a BSD system and the problem was Core Performance Boost. When it comes to Linux, such MCEs are rather rare, thus it is difficult to say what is the…

    I'm configuring an APU2 (2 GB RAM, 3 ports) with OpenWRT 20.02.0. I have updated to the latest mainline firmware and have had some stability issues. I have turned off core performance boost. After being up for a few hours, I received the following…

    Hi Michal

    I completely underestimated the creation of a bootable USB stick :-(

    All solutions I quickly found using a mix of dd (erase) and then fdisk and mkfs.vfat just didn't work out.

    Eventually, I found this instructions

    Hi James,

    Please refer which slots may be used for USB modems with SIM card slots: https://github.com/pcengines/a…ties.md#apu4a-apu4b-apu4c

    If you put the Quectel EC25 to mPCIe1 slot it won't work with SMI slots on the board. Regarding the SIM swap pin, it…

    Hi Andi,

    For starters, apu2 does not have integrated graphics so one cannot get VGA output on apu2.

    I recall having similar issues with extracting the TinyCore in Linux. Please note that the TinyCore instructions also require to make it bootable with…

    Hi aba,

    The USB boot issue you are observing may have various reasons. Few questions to determine the culprit:
    1. What is burned on the stick? Any BSD or Linux installer?
    2. Did you configure the serial console for the bootloader on the USB stick?
