If there are any way to get into Booklet's BIOS, like the way it is on usual PC by pressing "DEL" during boot sequence? If so - than what would be the most optimal settings for it, I wonder...
I've heard, that there is Phoenix BIOS. Have anyone tried to contact Nokia for optimal settings?
P.S. Suggesting to have here a thread to discuss BIOS-related themes.
Solved! Go to Solution.
To open BIOS setup; when Nokia logo appears during the device startup, hold down the F2 key.
Yes, it's Phoenix BIOS but there aren't that many settings you can change/optimize ... it's kinda stripped-down version of the BIOS setup (compared to Phoenix BIOSes I've seen in other computers - mainly desktops).
...I was hoping to find the way to modify HDD SATA mode or, at least, set the boot device priorities in BIOS - but I had no luck with that.
What a shame for this BIOS, it's really poorly functional.
Maybe there will be an updates from NOKIA to change firmware, but I don't believe in that.
I've found one use case for BIOS. Booklet refused to boot from external DVD. I had to disable internal HDD. On Boot section press Shift+1 and you'll get Exclamation mark in front of HDD. This will force Booklet to query externally connected USB devices for boot options on next boot. You'll have the choice to select what device to boot from with F12 or in BIOS (F2, Boot section).
I wasn't able to boot from LAN via Cisco (Linksys) RJ-45 USB network adapter, even having been turned off boot from internal HDD.
Have anyone tried to boot a Booklet via USB LAN adapter? Any success?
I'm not sure this particular USB device supports PXE boot ROM capability. I've found little info about the fact that external (USB) Ethernet adapters can inject their boot ROM into BIOS startup sequence.
