    Dear all GLK-UC2X users,

    Here is the link to the latest BIOS software:
    .ZIP:
    https://www.pepper-jobs.eu/downloads/index.php?file=GLK-UC2X_BIOS_20190319.zip (5.58MB)

    WARNING: Carefully read the below update instructions before running this update.

    Updates:

    1.) Disabled the ANX Type C update channel device so there will be no missing driver after re-installation of Windows (this can be manually enabled inside of BIOS when FW update for this type C port is needed, which rarely happens). Also, it reduces CPU loadings.
    2.) Latest Intel GOP codes.
    (not compatible with the legacy Intel graphics driver, need to update driver before running this BIOS upgrade)
    3.) Disabled EuP by default (not to affect USB kb/mouse wakeup from sleep).
    4.) Disabled UEFI Shell Control by default.

    Update procedures:

    Uninstalling Intel graphics device & driver, then installing the latest DCH driver (2019):
    1.) Before upgrading to this BIOS, please make sure your graphics driver is up-to-date.
    2.) If your graphics driver is not dated year 2019, please update the Intel graphics driver first.
    3.) Manually uninstall the Intel graphics device and driver before updating to Intel DCH driver.
    4.) Restart your PC after uninstalling, then install the latest DCH graphics driver.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Downloading and running the BIOS update .exe:
    5.) Download this BIOS package and extract it to your Windows desktop;
    6.) Run the .exe package with administrative rights
    7.) Sit back and relax and wait for it to complete
    (keyboard and mouse cannot move during the update)
    8.) The system is going to reboot itself after completion

    Feel free to ask us if you have any questions about how to perform these updates, thanks!

    Best Regards,
    Team Pepper Jobs.

    this can be manually enabled inside of BIOS... we can enable it in BIOS?

    run the .exe file inside of Windows in order not to erase the Windows license key.
    (your 2nd unit came with this BIOS loaded already)

    this can be manually enabled inside of BIOS when FW update for this type C port... I found the "Chipset" in BIOS, you can enable/disable on "LPSS I2C #8 for TypeC FW update", default is "disable"

    Yes. Just keep it as disabled because normally we don't have to update its firmware.

    Hi, Just updated to the latest BIOS (19-03-2019) and it shows support for NVMe so my question is does it now work with this.

    Yes but it’s limited to Gen 2 x1 speed (limitation of Gemini Lake) so theoretically it’s not faster than SATA 3.0.

    Western Digital WDS240G2G0B WD 240 GB Internal SSD M.2 SATA, Green
