AK1 BIOS
#1
Hi,

I tried to update the BIOS of my AK1 but it failed. I downloaded it from iACEPC download page.

At first, the video that describes how the BIOS is updated is wrong. If you boot in UEFI mode, you cannot flash the bios, since there is not nstart script in the package. If you flash it through windows, it says the size of the BIOS is different from the image.

In download, the drivers are for ACEPC AK1 J3455_4G_32G_3165D.
On the other hand, the BIOS is for ACEPC AK1 AK1_4G_32G_3265.

What is the difference between 3165D and 3265? Are there two models of AK1? 

If yes:
1) How can I identify my model?
2) Where is the BIOS file for the other model?

Regards,

You write: "If you flash it through windows, it says the size of the BIOS is different from the image."

Did you did it "as administrator"?

About drivers reference with "D", I think it's just the 4th version, no?...

You ask: "1) How can I identify my model?"

Download, install and run [/url]"Speccy" free version.

Under "motherboard" you should find your spec.

Yes, when I tried to update the BIOS through Windows, I executed the bat file as Administrator.

When the prompt opened it said the size of the BIOS was not compatible, but it started to read my BIOS anyway. Then, I stoped to process before flashing.

I just checked mine. It is like yours:

Brand American Megatrends Inc.
Version V3.15_4GD_W7L
Date 10-Nov-17

WHere can I find the BIOS update to this version?

Is it possible to unlock additional BIOS features? The options available are very restricted when compared with other PCs.

Could you say me what is the BIOS that is available in the Support Page? Is it to my AK1?

They should at least provide the latest release of the BIOS if you need to flash it by some reason.

Admin told me that the bios offered for download is identical to the original. It is not an update therefore.
