BIOS

BIOS is the abbreviation for Basic Input Output System. It is a small program that is stored on non-volatile memory that is used to initialize the system hardware during the boot process. BIOS is installed on every system when it ships, but occasionally there are upgrades to the BIOS to address various issues. This page has a table with all of the current versions of BIOS for the Vault. BIOS can be downloaded from this table by clicking on the “Download Link” entry and used to upgrade the BIOS on the Vault.

The currently installed BIOS version can be found on the main BIOS page, as seen in the example screenshot below (circled in red):

Notes

We recommend only updating the BIOS if their is a compelling reason to do so due to the risk of possibly rendering the device inoperable. If you have any questions please reach out to support@protectli.com  before flashing the BIOS.

See this link for instructions on how to install BIOS on the Vault, or consider using the Flashli (link) script to simplify the process.

Some older versions of the FW1 and FW2 Vaults do not have a COM port.  These units are still compatible with the FW1 and FW2 BIOS listed above.

Some older versions of FW1 and FW2 Vaults do not automatically update the new Boot Order with version BTL4A012. If this occurs, follow the steps below to set the Boot Order:

  • Power off the unit
  • Reboot the unit and hit the DEL key to enter BIOS
  • Select the Boot Tab
  • Select “F3” to Load Optimized Defaults
  • Verify the proper Boot order of 1) UEFI mSATA 2) UEFI USB 3) Legacy mSATA 4) Legacy USB
  • Select “F4” to Save and Exit
  • Verify the system boots correctly
