Starting uEFI BIOS Setup
Starting uEFI BIOS Setup
The CP6002 is provided with a Kontron-customized, pre-installed and configured version of
Aptio® (referred to as uEFI BIOS in this manual), AMI’s next generation BIOS firmware based
on the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (uEFI) specification and the Intel® Platform Innovation Framework for EFI.
This uEFI BIOS provides a variety of new and enhanced functions specifically tailored to the
hardware features of the CP6002. To take advantage of these functions, the uEFI BIOS comes
with an uEFI Shell, which provides quick and easy access to the individual function settings for
control or modification of the uEFI BIOS configuration, and a Setup program, which allows the
accessing of various menus that provide functions or access to sub-menus with more specific
functions of their own. The individual menus and the configurable functions are described in
this guide.
To start the uEFI BIOS Setup program, follow the steps below:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Power on the board.
Wait until the first characters appear on the screen (POST messages or splash screen).
Press the <DEL> or <F2> key.
If the uEFI BIOS is password-protected, a window such as the one below will appear:
Enter Password
Enter either the User password or the Administrator password (refer to Chapter 5,
Security Setup, for further information), press <RETURN>, and proceed with step 5.
5. A Setup menu with the following token attributes will appear. The currently active menu
and the currently active uEFI BIOS Setup item are highlighted in white.

Main Setup Menu
The Main setup menu is the first screen that appears after starting the Setup program.
At the top of this screen and all of the other major screens, there is a setup menu selection bar,
which permits access to all of the other major setup menus. These menus are selected via the
left-right arrow keys.
All setup menu screens have two main frames. The left frame displays all the functions that can
be configured. They are displayed in blue. Functions displayed in gray provide information
about the status or the operational configuration.
The right frame displays the key legend. Above the key legend there is an area reserved for a
text message. When a function is selected in the left frame, it is displayed in white. Often a text
message will accompany it.

The uEFI Shell
The uEFI Shell
The Kontron uEFI BIOS features a built-in and enhanced version of the uEFI Shell. For a detailed description of the available standard shell scripting refer to the EFI Shell User’s Guide.
For a detailed description of the available standard shell commands, refer to the Shell Command Manual 1.0. Both documents can be downloaded from the EFI and Framework Open
Source Community website: http://sourceforge.net/projects/efi-shell/files/documents/.
Please note that not all shell commands described in the Shell Command Manual 1.0 are provided by the Kontron uEFI BIOS.
7.1
Introduction, Basic Operation
The uEFI Shell forms an entry into the uEFI boot order and is the first boot option by default. It
is simply started by putting the uEFI Shell first in boot and running the board as usual.
7.1.1
Shell Startup
If the shell is executed, it displays its signon message followed by a list of detected devices.
The output produced by the device mapping table can vary depending on the board’s configuration.

The kboot command boots a legacy OS. Boot device can be selected in
a very flexible way. If the requested device is not present, boot returns
to shell. The kboot command cannot boot native uEFI operating
systems. But since these are bootable from shell by calling their
bootloader, this is not necessary either. If a requested device is present
but not bootable, uEFI continues to boot with the next bootable device in
the boot order.

Note: The RAMdisk loses its mount point name after all drives are
remapped by the map -r command. The RAMdisk will then be
enumerated as any other connected drive and gain a mount point
name like “fs0”. This is not a bug of the kmkramdisk command

show help
-s
Save current setup settings to “file”
-c
Compare current setup settings to “file”
<file>
DESCRIPTION:
“file” to be used for saving or comparison
The kSettings command is used to create a binary file of the current
setup settings. This file can later be used to check whether the settings
have changed or not.
To use this command a device with a FAT file system is required to be
connected.
Note that the command name “kSettings” is case sensitive.
USAGE:
Save current setup settings
(assumes that FAT file system is mapped to fs0:)
COMMAND / RESPONSE
fs0:\> kSettings -s companyDefaults.bin
Reading flash content... done
Saving setup settings to file... done
Check whether current setup settings differ from “file”
COMMAND / RESPONSE
fs0:\> kSettings -c companyDefaults.bin

FUNCTION:
SYNTAX:
DESCRIPTION:
USAGE:
Configure the Kontron onboard Watchdog
kwdt [-?|-t <timeindex>]
where:
-? Show help
-t <timeindex> Configure the Watchdog with the time related to
<timeindex> and activate it with reset routing
The kwdt command allows to enable the Kontron onboard Watchdog
with reset target before OS boot. This can be used to detect if the OS
fails to boot and react by reset. The OS Watchdog driver is required for
this functionality to operate.

Set Watchdog to 16 seconds and activate it
COMMAND / RESPONSE (none):
Shell> kwdt -t 7
Note: Because there is no application which triggers the Watchdog, the
system will be reset after 16 seconds in this case. This command
should be invoked from a script, followed by an operating system
boot, and the OS then has to start triggering the Watchdog.

uEFI Shell Scripting
7.3.1
Startup Scripting
CP6002 uEFI BIOS
If the ESC key is not pressed and the timeout is run out, either the Kontron flash-stored startup
is executed, if present, or the uEFI specified startup.nsh script located under \efi\boot\
on any of the attached drives is executed. If none of the startup scripts is present, or the startup
script terminates, the default boot order is continued.
If the shell is started with no interaction, it tries to execute some startup scripts automatically.
It searches for scripts in the following order:
1. Kontron flash-stored startup script
2. If there is no Kontron flash-stored startup script present, the uEFI specified startup.nsh
script is used. This script must be located on any of the attached FAT formatted disk drives under \efi\boot\startup.nsh.
If both startup scripts are absent, the shell terminates and the default boot order is continued.
7.3.2
Create a Startup Script
Startup scripts can be created using the uEFI Shell built-in editor edit or under any OS with a
plain text editor of your choice. To create a startup.nsh type shell script, simply save the
script on any FAT-formatted drive attached to the system under \efi\boot\startup.nsh.
To create a Kontron flash-stored startup script, the script is to be saved anywhere on a FATformatted drive attached to the system and stored to flash using the built-in uEFI Shell command kbootnsh.
7.3.3
Examples of Startup Scripts
7.3.3.1
Automatic Booting from USB Memory Stick
Automatic booting is made from a USB memory stick, if present, otherwise the boot is made
from the harddrive.
kboot -t usb-harddrive
kboot -t harddrive
If neither a USB memory stick nor a harddrive is present, the boot order is continued.
7.3.3.2
Switch On Clock Spreading Prior to Booting from Harddrive
kclsp -e
kboot -t harddrive
If no harddrive is present, the default order is continued.
7.3.3.3
Execute Shell Script on Other Harddrive
This example executes the shell script named bootme.nsh located in the root of the first detected disc drive (fs0).
shell> fs0:
fs0:\> bootme.nsh

Updating the uEFI BIOS
Updating the uEFI BIOS
BIOS updates are typically delivered as an update CD ISO image. This ISO image needs just
to be burned to a CD and booted. Follow the menu for updating the uEFI BIOS. For further information refer to the update CD documentation.
8.1
BIOS Redundancy Strategy
The CP6002 has two sets of EFI flash chips to form an EFI redundancy strategy. Basic idea
behind that is to always have at least one working EFI available regardless if there have been
any flashing errors or not.
8.2
Updating Strategy
To always maintain at least one EFI flash correct, the update CD uses the following update procedure:
1. Switch to the second flash.
Since the update CD always changes the flash chip prior to doing any updates, the uEFI
BIOS that was used to actually boot the board and is therefore known to be good is preserved for backup.
2. Update the second flash.
This flash is now selected as active boot flash.
The update CD will not allow to flash both chips at a time. Flashing both chips would destroy
the backup version and therefore break the redundancy.
If you want to have the same BIOS version on both flash chips, then simply run the update CD
twice.
8.3
Fallback Mechanism
In case of one EFI being corrupted and therefore the board not starting up, the IPMI controller
automatically switches to the other flash and resets the board. The board should now come up
successfully from the other not corrupted image. The flashing procedure can now be restarted
to restore the broken image.
8.4
Flash Selection by IPMI Command
Usually the active flash is selected by the IPMI controller. The flash bank can be switched via
an IPMI OEM command. This command is used by the update CD. See the IPMI manual for
further information.

CP6002 uEFI BIOS
Flash Selection by DIP Switch
On some cases it may be necessary to force the board to boot from the other flash without using the appropriate IPMI command to switch the flash chips. In this case, the onboard DIP
switch SW1, switch 2, is used to toggle the active flash. Note that this switch does not “select”
one flash chip. It toggles the currently active flash. Therefore, the IPMI controller will still switch
the flashes by command or in case of the active flash is defective. Note that using this DIP
switch does not change the way the update CD handles the update procedure. Refer to the
CP6002 user guide for further information.
8.6
Determining the Active Flash
Sometimes it may be necessary to check which flash is active. On the AMI Aptio-based uEFI
BIOS, the information is available using the EFI shell command “kboardinfo”. For further information, refer to the “kboardinfo” section in the uEFI Shell chapter of this document.
