Fujitsu D3231-S, D3235-S, D3236-S BIOS R1.25.0


BIOS R1.25.0


  • Changed Setup Item ID for "Automatic BIOS Update" from 0x10F to 0x170
  • Fixed: with certain types of Haswell-Refresh Processors the PCIe x16 slot might not work sporadically, or not at all
  • Fixed: OS/software setting invalid boot devices could cause permanent POST hang
  • Fixed: System could hang if Auto BIOS Update feature was enabled from within Windows
  • Fixed: System could hang if Firmware Online Update feature was enabled but network stack was still disabled
  • Fixed: Loading Legacy Option ROMs larger than 128kB may cause system hang
  • Fixed: For UEFI Boot mode there could be garbage from PXE boot messages on the POST screen in quiet boot mode
  • Fixed: If Windows 7 is booted without USB devices connected, USB devices plugged during runtime might not be detected - depending on the power management settings for the USB3 root hub
  • Fixed: boot order might change if internal graphic is disabled
  • Fixed: Avoid loudspeaker noise when system starts
  • Fixed: CPU clock is too high when SpeedStep is disabled (which is the default)
  • Fixed: User Password not accepted to enter BIOS setup, if "User Password on Boot” = “Disabled"
  • Fixed: When a FAN error is reported during POST system did not halt even if halt on errors was enabled
  • Fixed: iAMT health state changes to “Major Failure” if spending several minutes in BIOS Setup or Boot Device Menu
  • Fixed: System hang if IGD memory is set to 1024 MB
  • Fixed: System cannot boot from password protected HDD if option “HDD-Password on Boot” is disabled and keyboard is not connected
  • Fixed: Garbage characters in boot menu after iSCSI UEFI OS installation
  • Fixed: Setup password prompt corrupted in some video modes
  • Fixed: System hangs after password prompt if POST screen resolution is too high
  • Fixed: Wrong screen resolution for user password prompt if password entry is required on every boot
  • Fixed: Updated System Management firmware to prevent fan pulsing when system is running at low to medium load. AC-fail is required after BIOS update to solve this issue
  • Fixed: Last four characters of SATA Device Boot Options were cut off from the Boot Option String shown in F12 Menu or BIOS Setup
  • Fixed: Naming of Sensor 4 in BIOS setup was wrong ("0"). Now it is named “Core”.
  • Fixed: Windows Recovery Environment might not be available if an empty HDD was found before the system HDD
  • Fixed: Intel Video BIOS Build Revision was shown as revision 0.0 in driver if integrated graphics was set as primary display and no PCIe graphics card was plugged
  • Fixed: Display correct name of Graphics Controller in BIOS Setup if Video Option ROM is set to UEFI mode
  • Fixed: problems with some DVI-to-VGA dongles
  • Fixed: screen corruption during HDD password prompt
  • Fixed: In EraseDisk additionally selected options (reset admin and user passwords, load BIOS defaults, shutdown PC) would not be executed
  • Security bug fix: UEFI EDK2 Capsule Update Vulnerabilities VU#552286
  • Security bug fix: Unauthorized modification of UEFI variables in UEFI systems VU#758382
  • Workaround: USB keyboards that report the wrong "local minimum" for keyboard data in their report descriptor did not work correctly in BIOS setup and DOS
  • Workaround: System hang during reboot with GF605 PCIe Graphics Card and Option ROM setting “UEFI only”
  • Improvement: USB/FireWire code update. This may help with issues with plugged USB or FireWire cards or some USB devices
  • Improvement: Updated Video BIOS (both Legacy and UEFI)
  • Improvement: USB Security function. Note: Due to chipset limitations, Low Power Soft Off enabled or going to G3 (AC off) state is necessary before USB devices that were moved to different USB ports will be detected again
  • Improvement: Place SLP1 string within legacy "F-Segment"
  • Improvement: error logging data will not be cleared by BIOS update and will not be transferred by flashing an Archive file any more
  • Improvement: If the system was powered off by Power Button Override, then an AC-fail occurs and then system is connected to AC again, system will now stay off.
    Note: "Last State" only works with Low Power Soft Off is disabled!
  • Improvement: Some Error Logging texts changed
  • Improvement: SMBIOS Error Logging for memory errors would name the DIMM locations differently than what is printed on the mainboard
  • Improvement: Open Source License Information Link in BIOS in submenu of BIOS Setup Main Page 
  • Improvement: Boot Display detection for WHQL

Known problems and restrictions:

  • BIOS Setup option for ASPM PCIe power management has no effect, ASPM is always disabled
  • If Windows 7 is shut down with USB devices connected and then booted without USB devices connected, USB devices plugged later might not be detected.
    • Workaround #1: In Windows Device Manager select details of the USB3 root hub, select power management tab, disable "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
    • Workaround #2: Power -> Wake-Up Resources -> USB Keyboard -> Set to Enabled. 
      To change this setting: Power -> USB At Power-Off -> Set to "Always on"
      Note: you may change this back to "Always Off" later.
