Hello
Is it possible to set somewhere in the bios or somewhere to automatically start the device without pressing the power button ?
I would like it to start after a power cut for example

Many thanks

Please send me your current version of bios.
Step:
Windows10:Press "Win + R"-> "msinfo32"-> see BIOS version.
Ubantu:Please open the terminal under ubuntu desktop and enter “ sudo dmidecode -t 0 ”

Dear Boker,

i'd like to add myself to this petition, since im using the system as a firewall with pfsense (by the way, thanks a lot for fixing the ACPI tables in the latest bios update!!!).

It'd be so perfect to have this functionality added at the bios level.

Do you think that there's a chance to add auto start after power off in the next bios update (if there is any)?

Thanks for your attention, and have a lovely day.

Hello guys, just to update my case : I managed to install the patch with a live cd windows (windows pe), so no need to install a real windows or add another hdd to do so.
I firstly tried with FreeDos but it does not work because FreeDos support only non uefi boot and with the u500h we cannot boot with the legacy (although the bios tell we can).

Yes, most bios updates are only built for Windows, I've advised most of the linux users to run hitesh windows live image and flash the bios.

Good you solved this issue already.
Enjoy your device with auto power on function.
Cheers.
