EDK II firmware for Minnowboard Max/Turbot which is based on Intel Valleyview2 SoC (Byatrail platform)


Windows Pre-requisites

  • GIT client: Available from https://git-scm.com/downloads

  • Microsoft Visual Studio.

    • Visual Studio 2015 recommended and is used in the examples below. Visual Studio 2013 is also supported.
  • WINDDK

    • Download Microsoft Windows Driver Development Kit 3790.1830 and install it to C:\WINDDK\3790.1830.
  • Python 3

  • Install iASL

    • Install the iasl compiler by downloading iasl-win-20160527.zip from the following location: "https://acpica.org/downloads/" and place the unzipped content ("iasl.exe") into the directory "C:\ASL" on your local hard drive (create the folder "C:\ASL" if it does not exist).
  • Install the NASM* assembly language compiler

  • Install Openssl

    • Download a pre-compiled Openssl Windows binary from https://wiki.openssl.org/index.php/Binaries. Search for a Windows binary in the list of "Third Party OpenSSL Related Binary Distributions". Go to the third party site to download the latest version. Download and extract to C:\Openssl, add the path of openssl.exe ("C:\openssl") to system environment variable OPENSSL_PATH.

Download and Build MinnowMax using Windows/Visual Studio

Run the script below from an empty directory. The script clones the EDK II repository from GitHub and downloads and unzips the binary support files for the MinnowBoard MAX. It then sets up the environment for EDK II builds and builds the MinnowBoard MAX firmware and generates UEFI Capsules that can be used to update the MinnowBoard MAX firmware and three sample devices.

edksetup.bat Rebuild

Once the environment is setup, the MinnowBoard MAX firmware and capsules can be rebuilt using the following commands.

  • Build X64 Debug Image with report file
build -a IA32 -a X64 -n 5 -t VS2015x86 -b DEBUG -p Vlv2TbltDevicePkg\PlatformPkgX64.dsc -y Vlv.report
  • Build X64 Release Image with build log
build -a IA32 -a X64 -n 5 -t VS2015x86 -b RELEASE Vlv2TbltDevicePkg\PlatformPkgX64.dsc -j Vlv.log
  • Build IA32 Debug Image
build -a IA32 -n 5 -t VS2015x86 -b DEBUG -p Vlv2TbltDevicePkg\PlatformPkgIA32.dsc

The generated firmware image is the build output directory below WORKSPACE. For exampple, the X64 Debug Image is at:

Build\Vlv2TbltDevicePkgX64\DEBUG_VS2015x86\FV\Vlv.fd

And the IA32 Release image is at:

Build\Vlv2TbltDevicePkgIA32\RELEASE_VS2015x86\FV\Vlv.fd

The X64 CapsuleApp and generated UEFI Capsules are in the directory

Build\Vlv2TbltDevicePkgX64\Capsules

Linux Pre-requisites

  • git
  • python
  • iasl
  • nasm
  • openssl
  • gcab

Download and Build MinnowMax using Linux/GCC

Run the script below from an empty directory. The script clones the EDK II repository from GitHub and downloads and unzips the binary support files for the MinnowBoard MAX. It then sets up the environment for EDK II builds and builds the MinnowBoard MAX firmware and generates UEFI Capsules that can be used to update the MinnowBoard MAX firmware and three sample devices.

. edksetup.sh

build -a IA32 -a X64 -n 5 -t GCC5 -b DEBUG -p Vlv2TbltDevicePkg/PlatformPkgX64.dsc

Once all the code is downloaded and installed, only the following commands are required to setup the environment. Run these from the same directory used to install the source and binaries.

export WORKSPACE=$PWD
export PACKAGES_PATH=$WORKSPACE/edk2:$WORKSPACE/edk2-platforms/Silicon/Intel:$WORKSPACE/edk2-platforms/Platform/Intel:$WORKSPACE/edk2-non-osi/Silicon/Intel

Once the environment is setup, the MinnowBoard MAX firmware and capsules can be rebuilt using the following commands.

  • Build X64 Debug Image with report file
build -a IA32 -a X64 -n 5 -t GCC5 -b DEBUG -p Vlv2TbltDevicePkg/PlatformPkgX64.dsc -y Vlv.report
  • Build X64 Release Image with build log
build -a IA32 -a X64 -n 5 -t GCC5 -b RELEASE -p Vlv2TbltDevicePkg/PlatformPkgX64.dsc -j Vlv.log
  • Build IA32 Debug Image
build -a IA32 -n 5 -t GCC5 -b DEBUG -p Vlv2TbltDevicePkg/PlatformPkgIA32.dsc

The generated firmware image is the build output directory below WORKSPACE. For exampple, the X64 Debug Image is at:

Build/Vlv2TbltDevicePkgX64/DEBUG_GCC5/FV/Vlv.fd

And the IA32 Release image is at:

Build/Vlv2TbltDevicePkgIA32/RELEASE_GCC5/FV/Vlv.fd

The X64 CapsuleApp and generated UEFI Capsules are in the directory

Build/Vlv2TbltDevicePkgX64/Capsules

Use DediProg to update FLASH image on a MinnowBoard MAX Target

Update MinnowBoard MAX Firmware from UEFI Capsules

  • Copy the Build/Vlv2TbltDevicePkg/Capsules directory to a USB FLASH drive
  • Connect USB FLASH Drive to MinnowBoard MAX
  • Boot MinnowBoard MAX to the Boot Manager
  • Boot the EFI Internal Shell boot option
  • Mount the USB FLASH Drive (usually FS1)
  • Use cd command to go to Capsules/TestCert_* directory
  • Run the following command to apply all four capsules
CapsuleApp.efi Red.cap Green.cap Blue.cap MinnowMax.cap
  • The MinnowBoard MAX should reboot and the four capsules are applied in the order listed. The progress bar matches the color name of the capsule. MinnowMax.cap uses the color purple. Once all capsules are processed, the MinnowBoard MAX should reboot again using the new firmware images.

Generate and Test a UX BitMap Capsule

  • Use bitmap editor to generate a BMP file. Recommend resolution of 600 wide by 100 tell and either 24 or 32 bits per pixel.
  • Save BMP file to USB FLASH drive
  • Use CapsuleApp.efi to convert BMP file to a UX Capsule
CapsuleApp.efi -G MyImage.bmp -O MyImage.cap
  • When updating firmware using capsules, add UX capsule to the list of capsules passed into CapsuleApp.efi.
CapsuleApp.efi MyImage.cap Red.cap Green.cap Blue.cap MinnowMax.cap
  • When the capsules are processed the UX bitmap image should be displayed at the bottom of the screen.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
