did you have CONFIG_USE_OPTION_TABLE before? If not you potentially have

to be the same defaults that are hardcoded in the code and the file only
takes effect if CONFIG_USE_OPTION_TABLE is set. As I looked at the SATA
code, I know the AHCI setting is one that definitely differs.
No, I don't think I had CONFIG_USE_OPTION_TABLE before, so when I enabled the
"Use CMOS for configuration values" I suspect it did change all sorts of
I would value confirmation that it is safe to run
CT16G3ERSLD4160B RAM I have in this board at 1.5v.
Yes, all DDR3L should be 1.5V compatible. I'm fairly confused that such
a board has a 1.35V option, though.
Thank you for confirming 1.5V is ok, it's much appreciated.
Unfortunately I have had no joy in getting this system stable when I have enabled
"Use CMOS for configuration values". I have tried it with and without the
"Load default Configuration values into CMOS on each boot" option.
I have also used a range of permutations of the cmos.default file, beginning with the
original default and extending to modifying some of the options Taiidan indicated worked
fine for him (memory_speed_boost, 1394 controller and SATA ALPM).
I am flashing the BIOS with my beaglebone and am ensuring the CMOS is reset on the board
before every boot with a new BIOS.
Each time it either resets halfway through booting Qubes (before getting to the disk
unlock screen), or if I take my SSD out, it hangs in memtest after 3 or 4 seconds.
I am wondering if I have somehow selected some other incompatible option alongside the
"Use CMOS for configuration values".
I have attached a text file with an overview of all the options I have selected with the
nconfig utility, on the off-chance someone spots something I have done wrong. I have also
attached the cmos.default file in case it is helpful.
