    Ocassionaly (every few days), after shutting down Windows, or Linux, Udoo Bolt does not boot any more till hardware reset of bios.

    It boots until B4/A0 phase (right lower corner of screen) then hangs. It's not possible to boot. It's not possible to enter bios either (sic!)

    If I do bios manual reset using switch on the board ( BIOS default recovery switch), the udoo boots properly, without ANY changes to windows/linux/disk mechanism.

    I suspect this is some kind of bug in the firmware interpreting UEFI values.

    I tested this behaviour on three different firmwares:
    * orginall
    * rc 1.05
    * rc 1.06 RC6 (from 22 November) -> this one I use currently.

    I am having this same issue, and it's driving me crazy. It happens for me almost every time Windows shuts down. I was having issues with the Linux boot (after a Windows shutdown) which was solved by putting Ubuntu boot before Windows boot.
    I didn't know about the BIOS recovery switch, so my solution has been to remove all of my storage devices (both M.2 slots, this gets really annoying...) which allows me to boot into BIOS menu. Then I can put the storage back and boot normally again.
    I've been using the the original firmware I believe. (I think you should not hide the fact that there is a BIOS firmware update under the 'Advanced Topics' page...)

    Yeah, it does not allow me to put my bolt in case, and drives me crazy too.

    Currently I'm observing it hang on A0 phase:
    * on every windows crash (which happens occasionaly during heavy gaming)
    * on almost every normal restart I do through windows menu
    * ocassioinally on linux shutdowns.

    @evaloverde Could you please ask one of the engineers to look into it? I'd happily provide any technical input/diagnose into this bug.

    I'm having exactly the same problem as this. I just leave mine on 24/7 and it does not boot afterward until the mini BIOS switch is toggled.

    What is the solution to this?

    Unfortunately this problem appears in a hit or miss fassion. Your only solution is to wait to bios update from udoo, and in the meantime you can file ticket to them, to help them debug the problem at https://ticket.udoo.org/

    Please try disable Windows fastboot feature to see if it helps.

    I'm on Ubuntu, so if that's not a bios setting, I don't have it.
