    It’s been a while since I’ve done any updating on my Wyse terminals.  Most of my terminals are older ones.  In the past, all I’ve usually done is update the Wyse software (I.E., R10_wnos, ZD10_wnos, etc…).  I’m now seeing that there are BIOS updates.  Are BIOS updates required?  Can I just keep updating the Wyse software without the BIOS updates being installed?  Am I missing anything by not installing the BIOS updates?

    Any insight is much appreciated!

    BIOS updates can be critical. However, in most cases not needed.

    Where would I find R10_bios.bin to update an Wyse R10L Thin Client?  I saw the firmware in the download section, but not the BIOS.

    Which BIOS version are you running on your R10L clients?

    Hi ConfGen and all the Experts here,

    I am new on this Site and I am also a new Wyse Thin Client Owner, and need a little Help from You Experts.

    By the Way, I tried to update my Profile on this Site, but the “Update Profile” Button dos not work corectly!
    It opens a window for saving the “profile.php” to  my local PC!?

    I have some problems with a Wyse Cx0 C10LE wich I bought on eBay for little Money.
    It came with a DVI to VGA Adapter 4 Pods for standing and a Powersupply but without any documentation!
    My intense was to use this Tiny PC as a testing Machine for some Projects I work on, but now I know that this is not a Micro PC it is a ThinClient.

    The full Machine description is: C10LE WTOS 1G 128F/512R DVI CBL EUR PC EDF.
    BIOS-Version: 1.0B-0407; BIOS-Date: 10/07/09 more than 10 Years old!
    It has a 2GB Flashdrive as Harddisk.
    And it gets an fixed IP from my DHCP Server a Synologgy  NAS.
    Firmware: I don’t know! How can I figure out that information?

    I would like to update BIOS and Firmware, but dont know how without Internet connection.

    My Problem is: When I startup the TC it boots directly to Windows XP asking me for the Password of the User “USER PC” which I don’t know,
    when leaving the Passwordfield empty by clicking the OK Button it starts Windows XP but there I have no rights at all.

    The TC is not able to enter the Internet when Windows XP is started, because of something blocks it.

    I can enter the BIOS, but there ist not much to Change! I am also able to boot the TC over PXE but that will make no sense, because of too less Memory on the TC.

    I have tried to get Help and also the latest Updates from Dell, but I don’t have a Service-Tag-Number for my C10LE, and I could not generate one from the Serial Number,
    because Dell don’t know this Serial Number.

    I have found this Site und have downloaded almost every Dokumentation and Software aviable here. But these downloads are now on my privat PC.

    I would  like  to make a Factory Reset on the C10LE to start from beginning, but i don`t get the Screen (like shown in the YouTube-Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s8nhSIdRbg) how else can I do a Factory reset?
    How can I enter the Screen with the System Information window and the “Desktop” Button at the lower left corner?

    The TC is booting to WinXP and nothing else. I tried the “G-Key” reset without any result. Tried also the “P-Key” but then it only displays a boot-menue to start PXE-boot or boot from Flashdrive or enter the BIOS-Setup!

    Thanks for Help and please forgive me my bad english

    Carsten

    A C10LE is running ThinOS as an OS.
    You state that yours is booting Windows XP. Therefore, this is not the original Wyse OS.
    Additionally, you say that your C10LE has 2GB of flash. The original description you’ve posted says C10LE WTOS 1G 128F/512R, which means: C10LE with Wyse ThinOS, 128 MB flash, and 512MB RAM.
