Please use the provided BIOS firmware archive file along with the following instructional video to re-flash your Quantum Byte.

    Is there an option in the BIOS to boot from a USB keyboard? My keyboard has a power button but I cannot find a BIOS setting to enable it to boot from the keyboard.

    Thanks

      Hello Drew,

      The feature you’re referring to is normally known as “Power On By Keyboard”, this feature is not available in our devices, however we will consider the implementation of this feature for our devices.

    PLEASE add the ability to wake on USB! I’d love to be able to leave my box in a “sleep” mode and then have a button push wake it up. This is a must have for a home theater!

      Hello Skrell,

      Our device is already able to sleep and wake from keyboard, please adjust your sleep settings. This is how most of us have ours setup for our mini HTPC, which works great if you have a NAS + Plex hosting your favorite media collection.

    I did this BIOS upgrade and it seemed to work, but the Power On Power Loss feature is still not working. I have a pre-jumper version of the Quantum Byte, so I’m not sure if the newest version of the BIOS (linked above) can work without the jumpers. Is there an older version of the BIOS that has the Power On Power Loss feature that I could try?

      Hello Mike,

      Please download this: ftp://70.35.206.127/Software/BIOS/Byte/Quantum%20byte%20Auto%20Run%20BIOS%20V130.zip

      Then unplug the device, and reseat the power connection.

      The device should turn off and back on.

    Is the jumper included with the Quantum Byte currently distributed on Amazon? I require the Power On Power Loss feature and want to make sure I’m able to do this.

    What do I need to get exactly?

    Thanks.

      Hello James,

      All the bytes on Amazon are currently available and shipped with the autorun jumper.

    Hello! I’m having trouble installing ubuntu 14.04 64bit into my quantum.
    I have tried every method I could think of. Even going to uefi shell and manually executing grubx64.efi doesn’t work, it says it does not support 64bit efi boot.
    Are 64-bit OSs supported? If so, how can I install ubuntu into it?

    Thanks in advance
