Re:P330 tiny is not updating the new flash bios M1UKT65A via Vantage

2021-04-05, 22:22 PM

Hi, i use YUMI-UEFI for ISOs
https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/
The current version is
YUMI-UEFI-0.0.3.5.exe
Select→"Try Unlisted ISO" as distribution. This works for pretty much all ISOs. You have to Boot then in UEFI mode.
But as i mentioned the problem is still the same. The following message appears
Processing update firmware
Reading Flash
...
The screen remains dark after the reboot. The P330 doesn't do anything. After switching off and on, the P330 starts up normally. But no firmware update was made. I also booted into Windows 10 PE (on a USB stick) and started the firmware update from there. Same problem. I've updated the firmware several times since I own the P330. I've never had a problem. Best regards

Re:P330 tiny is not updating the new flash bios M1UKT65A via Vantage

Hello, after having the same problem with the Bios update to version M1UKT66A, i was looking again for a solution. Below is the solution that worked for me right away.

- Download the current version of the BIOS and burn it to CD.
- Set the jumper on the motherboard from position 5-6 to position 2-4 (clear CMOS).

jumper clear cmos

The contact strip with the 6 pins can easily be found.
- Connect the CD-ROM drive with the burned BIOS CD to the front USB connector and switch on the computer. The computer boots into a graphical Flash menu, the BIOS is installed, the computer shuts down by itself and remains off (no user action is required). No other setting in the BIOS was required (boot sequence, etc.).
- Set the jumper on the motherboard from position 2-4 back to position 5-6. Turn on the computer. Finished.

 

I have not tried any other variant with a bios on a USB stick etc. I have a CD-ROM drive and this way is described in the user manual. This may also work with a USB stick.

Had the same blank screen on post. Power cycle to recover. BIOS event log shows an update, but BIOS revision on main says otherwise.

 

This only happed on P330 Tiny with 64GB RAM… downgraded to 16GB stick and update without problem. Just my luck?

Ah!  I also have 64gb (2x32gb) RAM on my P330 Workstation Gen 2.  Can anyone else confirm or contradict this pattern?

I am having the exact issue, except that my computer not only would not start, but also kept beeping loudly like crazy after the recent BIOS update. I had to turn off the machine and will try to revive it tomorrow, if possible. I’m wondering how those of you who had the issue recently solved it, or not.

As posted above my P330 Workstation Gen 2 with 64GB RAM (2X32GB) had the same problem upgrading BIOS from M1VKT65A to M1VKT66A.  I followed hugmenot's post above and downgraded to the OEM 16GB (1x16GB).  With this I was able to successfully upgrade the BIOS.  I subsequently reinstalled the upgraded 64GB RAM (2x32GB) and the system restarted without problems.

Thanks for all the feedback on this topic from those encountering this issue.  We'll test it here to see if we can replicate, and also pull in our BIOS team to see if they can get to the root cause of the issue.




If we've helped resolve your issue, please be sure to mark your topic as solved!

I turned on my computer a few minutes ago, thinking I’d give another try before I downgrade my ram (I have 2x16) or do a usb booting. Well, the computer did a “manual start up” and then started windows without problem. I also checked Vantage and I did have the new BIOS. So my problem is solved.  Hmmm, the computer just needed a long break?
