Intel Boot Utility, Preboot Images, EFI Drivers package, Ethernet Flash Firmware Utility, Intel Boot Agent or how to make a mess of things with too many names and tools.
A list with I2C bus addresses compiled by Adafruit for their various devices (which most likely works on the clones as well).
As we know AMD motherboards need BIOS updates to support new generations of Ryzen CPUs. This can normally be done using a recognized older gen CPU to power on the board and access the built-in BIOS updater function.
When there’s no older gen CPU around to use or you’re simply in the mood for some hardware tinkering, you can get your elbows dirty (figuratively, since the board is brand new and not dusty yet) using an EEPROM programmer.
In case the hard disk itself is taking too long to respond, some operations will fail and can cause the controller (software or hardware) to drop the disk out of the RAID.
Even when no RAID is used, the hard disk itself can still spend too much time retrying a (failing) read, causing unwanted delays and possible further damage.
To alleviate this, you can try to use a feature called TLER (Time Limited Error Recovery) or CCTL (Command Completion Time Limit).
I have been looking for a good alternative which could handle my gigabit internet connection and I believe I made a good choice going with PCEngine’s APU2 embedded system.
I tried following various tutorials dedicated for installing both pfSense and OPNsense on this device, however they didn’t quite work on the APU (or in my case), so I tried a personal method which proved successful.
There comes a time in a tablet’s life when firmware crashes and needs recovery (due to events beyond the user’s control, of course, such as OTA updating a rooted firmware).
In such times the unwritten details (like procedures and filenames) are what separate a brick from a successful recovery.
There are plenty of TVs to chose from and nowadays they all know DVB-C so why go through all the trouble of building a TV player with a Raspberry PI?
Well… because it’s fun and because of the freedom of being able to watch your favourite TV channel on any of your devices – even when away.
Latest Huawei 3G/4G modems come with firmware that implements a feature Huawei calls “HiLink“, transforming the classical PPP dial-up connection to an always-on wireless broadband. This feature is highly useful on Windows operating systems, but will add an extra level of complexity to using the modem on Linux or in …
Did you drop your Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 and crack, smash or shatter your front glass, touch screen and/or LCD? No worries. With the proper tools, the spare parts and a bucket load of patience you will have your phone looking “like new” in no time.
My ISP upgraded my connection from VDSL to fiber and gave me new hardware to go with it – the Huawei HG8247H GPON. However, as I am already using a fully configured DDWRT-ed router for all my networking tasks, I needed to turn the Huawei into a media converter and pass the static IP to my second router – not the easiest task as it appears.
The Huawei my ISP uses comes with manufacturer firmware and blank configuration so the default logins of still work, but as soon as its WAN gets connected it grabs the configuration from the ISP and the administrator login changes.
