The MinnowBoard MAX uses a UEFI system level firmware, and provides both the UEFI shell, and a typical BIOS style menu interface.

UEFI Version

Publicly released versions

  • MNW2CRB1.X64.0071.R30.1408131301
    • Fixed the firmware (NVRAM) stallin issue which caused some board brickings
    • Fixed some HDMI monitors from being able to initialize

How to tell your firmware version

  • Get to the UEFI menu
    • Either boot to the UEFI shell and type:
      Shell> exit
    • Hit F2 during boot
  • The 3rd line down will be the firmware version
    • will look something like:
      MNW2CRB1.X64.0071.R30.1408131301

Decoding the Version String

MNW2CRB1 X64 0071 R30 1408131301
Firmware Type

MinnowBoard MAX (v2) CRB1

Architecture
32-bit vs. 64-bit
I32 = 32-bit
X64 = 64-bit
Version Number Firmware Type
 R30
 R = Release
 D = Debug
Build number
 YYMMDDHHMMSS
 YY = Year
 MM = Month
 DD = Day
 HH = Hour
 MM = Minute
 SS = Second

UEFI Shell

UEFI Shell prompt

The simplest way to get to the UEFI shell is to:

  1. Make sure that the MinnowBoard MAX is powered down
  2. Disconnect all bootable media
    1. USB drives
    2. SATA drives
    3. SD cards
  3. Power on the MinnowBoard MAX

At this point you should get a screen that looks very similar to the one at right. This is the UEFI Shell, there are a number of commands that can be done here, and the system can be explored in great depth from this interface.

Places to find more information about UEFI shell and it's commands:

No bootable devices found

If you boot to the UEFI shell and you get the following (or similar)


   EFI Shell version 2.40 [1.0]
   Current running mode 1.1.2
   map: Cannot find required map name.
   
   Press ESC in 1 seconds to skip startup.nsh, any other key to continue. 
   Shell>

Then your boot, for some reasons, failed to detect any bootable media attached. Double check your connections and then run:

   Shell> connect -r
   Shell> map -r

If that doesn't work, reboot.

BIOS menu

Exit UEFI Shell prompt

The BIOS menu gives a more traditional way to configure the basic firmware parameters on the system, set the GPIO pinmux states and perform the typical tasks one would expect to do in these menus.

To get to it:

  1. Key-press way
    1. Press F2 during bootup to jump directly to it. Prior to powering on the board, start holding down F2, and continue holding it down until you see the BIOS menu. This will not work over the serial console, it's necessary to actually plug a keyboard into the Minnowboard Max.
  2. UEFI Shell way
    1. Follow the steps to get to the UEFI Shell (above)
    2. Type the following:
   exit

You should now get a screen that looks like the following: Main BIOS menu screen

This is the main menu on the BIOS menu

BIOS Menu Tree

Continue

This just continues the boot process

Select Language

This adjusts the language that the bios is displayed in

Boot Manager

This adjusts the basic boot options, including what to boot to.

EFI Internal Shell

This will boot to the UEFI shell

Device Manager

This allows for the configuration of specific devices on the system
