OpenSource UEFI BIOS by Intel appears to be unusable now
I purchased UPS-APLX7-A20-0864 (Atom Intel E3950 model) last month and discovered that the open source firmware provided by Intel (*1, *2) no longer worked.
Can anyone comment on if this is the case and if there will be a fix?
To be more precise, the board fails to complete FSP initialization and freezes at a black screen. Attached are the logs from my board (ends at FspFindFspHeader) and the log from a friend of mine showing the successful flow, both with debug-build Intel BIOS. If I write back to the proprietary BIOS, it of course boots fine (a pic attached). This is was never seen with mine bought about 2 years ago and another friend's one bought just three months ago.
I purchased the board for the DCI debugging capability available with the Intel BIOS, so switching to another BIOS is not an option unless it came with DCI enabled. Suggestion on things to try to workaround the issue while enabling DCI is veery appreciated too.
Thanks for your help in advance,
