hi, where is a link to the download of the factory bios for the 12th generation laptops?
There’s no download link for the factory BIOS. While you wait for a reply from Framework support, you can try the following:
- power off
- unplug the USB-C power cable
- wait 2 min
- plug the USB-C power cable into one of the USB-C expansion cards on the other side of the laptop (left <-> right)
- power on
- run the BIOS update again
The 3.06 BIOS update includes three updates: “BIOS” plus retimer firmware updates for both sides. It seems that the retimer updates (sometimes?) don’t completely install as long as a power cable is plugged in on the corresponding side of the laptop.
I fixed it by doing the internal battery disconnect in the bios, then rebooting it a bunch of times, THEN I went to install 3.06 and it worked? I really don’t know why.
It works now tho!
