    The package contains the following files:

    Startup.nsh
  3. Copy the extracted files to the UFD

  7. Press the DEL key during the boot until the BIOS Setup appears
  8. Browse to the Save & Exit menu
  9. Click on the Launch EFI Shell from filesystem device option
  10. The system will boot to the EFI Shell, and after 4 seconds the automatic flash process will start.
    Note: At the start of the process, the system will hang for 1 minute. This is expected behaviour. Please, don’t interrupt it
  11. At the end of the flashing process, remove the UFD, type the command reset and press the Enter key
