BIOS Setup for Restore AC Power Loss:

The Energy-Related Products Directive (ERP) is the European Commission Directive required for products sold and exported to the EU. As such the Jetway N3160 does not automatically power on after a power failure. Obviously this feature needs to be disabled.

On startup (quickly) press the <ESC> key to enter the BIOS Setup, go to the “Chipset” → “South Bridge” . Make the following changes…

  • System State after Power Failure → Always On

BIOS Setup for Boot OS Selection (non-UEFI):

While in the BIOS Setup as above, to enable Legacy boot, go to the “Advanced” → “CSM Configuration” menu…

  • Boot Option Filter → Legacy Only

BIOS Setup for Boot OS Selection (UEFI):

UEFI Boot requires AstLinux 1.4.6 or later - additionally RUNNIX 0.6.10 or later is needed.

While in the BIOS Setup as above, to enable UEFI boot, go to the “Advanced” → “CSM configuration” menu…

  • Boot option filter → UEFI Only

(Optional) BIOS Setup for Console Redirection:

If you are using a serial console, you may want to optionally enable Console Redirection for the BIOS configuration.

Go to the “Advanced” → “Serial Port Console Redirection” menu…

  • COM1
  • Console Redirection → Enabled
  • Console Redirection Settings
    • Terminal Type → VT100+
    • Redirect After BIOS POST → BootLoader

Save the above BIOS changes, reboot.
