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 Qotom Q190G4N-S07 does not automatically power on after a power failure. Obviously this feature needs to be disabled.

On startup (quickly) press the <DEL> key to enter the BIOS Setup, go to the “Advanced” → “ACPI Settings” . Make the following changes…

  • Restore AC Power Loss → Power On

The results should like the following screen…

BIOS Power On

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

While in the BIOS Setup as above, check to make sure Legacy Win7 boot is enabled, go to the “Boot” menu…

  • Boot OS Selection → Legacy Win7

The results should like the following screen…

BIOS Legacy Boot

Save the above BIOS changes, reboot.

Note: On newer BIOS versions (12/2018) you might need to make the following changes, if you can't boot the AstLinux installation from an USB stick:

In “Chipset/South Bridge/USB Configuration”:

  • XHCI Mode → Disabled
  • USB 2.0(EHCI) Support → Enabled

If the mSATA was pre-installed (with e.g. PFSense) you also need to setup the Boot Priorities for the USB stick correctly on the “Boot” page.
Or you can choose a temporary Boot-Device at the „Save & Exit“ tab under „Boot Override“ at the bottom (instead of a Boot-Menu).

Update: To activate the boot menu, press F11 (or F7 on some models).
