Thanks for sharing the result from the sudo dmidecode! The BIOS is InsydeH2O UEFI BIOS, right? I think you can check it on the BIOS page before booting OS.

yw! Looks different from screenshots I’ve seen before, but identifies as H2O:

All right. Thanks!

I think the "3.03’ written in the following document is wrong. I have never seen the 3.03 yet. It should be “3.02” for now.

Download: No New BIOS at this time. The Factory-Installed BIOS (3.03) is the latest version

@GhostLegion I know the thread. I don’t understand what your intent is. The 3.03 is mentioned as planed. I meant I have never seen the “released” 3.03 publicly yet. I have seen that Framework usually adds the BIOS version to the knowledge base after they release a new version BIOS or after removing the beta status.

@junaruga 3.03 is shipped on Batch 2 and 3 orders, its publicly released already or will be shortly.

Hello, anyone who already got the Framework Laptop 13 AMD as Batch 2, and is running Linux on it, could you share the result by the following command to see the used BIOS version?

$ sudo dmidecode -s bios-version

It seems that the AMD Batch 2’s BIOS version is still 3.02.

Just wondering, I got a batch 2 mainboard 2 days ago and it has 3.02. Should I update to 3.03 now or wait until the official release?

3.03 Beta still hasn’t released, but when it does the answer would be that you can upgrade to it if you are willing to beta test the new BIOS, but if any potential issues would be a deal breaker, it would be best to wait until after it is out of beta.

Thanks! I will keep an eye out, I am willing to test and report back.

Awesome. You’ll want to be tracking the official thread for the 3.03 BIOS here

I added Framework Laptop 13 AMD BIOS 3.03 downloading page link to the first comment.


Thanks, Just updated will start testing a few things.

Hello. Saw that BIOS 3.19 is available for my 11th gen Framework 13. However, the Linux image still says ‘coming soon’. Any ETA on when it will be GA? I don’t have Windows.


No official timeline, but Framework had updates for the AMD boards and 12th gen Intel boards that are higher priority than this at the time. They are working on getting it ready for Linux, but until then if you absolutely need the changes made in the 3.19 BIOS, it is recommended to create a Windows To-Go USB Drive to do the install or wait until the firmware team is able to get the Linux version of the BIOS out.

You can install it using Hiren’s BootCD. Boot it standalone from a stick (changes are saved), or the ISO via Ventoy (are not).

Thanks, will give that a try. Ventoy + BootCD seems to be just the ticket.
