How to Update the BIOS on the NT310-H Laptop

BIOS Updates are available for the Stone NT310-H Haswell based laptop.

Note: Please only update the BIOS if necessary. The BIOS should not be updated unless you are experiencing a specific issue which requires an update. This BIOS update is designed to be used by Administrators. Contact Stone Support for further advice.

What you need to Perform the Update

Steps

  • Extract the downloaded file to the pen drive.
  • Ensure that the system to be updated is connected to the AC mains and also has a battery level of at least 20%.
  • Disable UEFI boot in the BIOS, if enabled.
  • Boot the system to be updated from the pen drive.
  • Run ECFLASH to update the EC Firmware.
  • Then shut the system down if it doesn't turn off automatically.
  • Boot the system up again and start it again from the pen drive.
  • Run the FLASH batch file to flash the main BIOS.
  • When the flash has completed, shut the system down, if it does not shut down automatically.
  • Start the system back up and re-enable UEFI boot in the BIOS if it was previously enabled.

Note 1: Do not attempt to use this BIOS update procedure inside a "DOS" box or command prompt inside another operating system. Always run all parts of the update from a pure DOS boot.

Note 2: Always ensure that the laptop is connected to the mains and that the battery has at least 20% charge before attempting to perform the flash.

Applies to:

  • Stone NT310-H Laptop - NOTCHA-260 and NOTCHA-265.
