RN516 BIOS update

Hi,

 

How can I got about upgrading my RN516 to the latest BIOS level?  I am hoping to add support for VT-x.

This is what the log currently says it has:

sys/class/dmi/id/bios_date
::::::::::::::
06/06/2013
::::::::::::::
/sys/class/dmi/id/bios_version
::::::::::::::
4.6.5

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: RN516 BIOS update

The very next BIOS version after the one on your system enabled VT-x support.

 

There are additional changes in even newer BIOS such as a USB3 Firmware Update and improvements to the USB Boot Recovery process (no longer any need to press the O.K. button - it's tricky to get the timing right with doing that).

Could you send me a latest copy?

Your system already has the latest BIOS for the RN516.
