Bricked after BIOS update?


I recently updated the BIOS on the UP Squared to the 6.1 BIOS (from I then followed the guidance in

Everything went fine and the update was a success (although I ran "reset" from the EFI Shell to reboot the device, as it didn't automatically reboot).

Now the device doesn't boot and all I get is a flashing blue power light, next to the DC jack.

    Hi LemmingOverlord,

    Please confirm when the blue light is on, connect the keyboard, does the Numlock light respond?
    If not, unfortunately, you will need to send it in for aftermarket repairs to fix the problem.
    It seems that the BIOS update failed, and the BIOS cannot be entered due to the current situation.
    Do you still have the BIOS version before the update?

    Best Regard.

    Hi Sir,

    Unfortunately, it looks like updating the BIOS failed.
    Please send this motherboard through customer service personnel for repair.
