I was recently trying to get video output to a monitor with the SolidRun HoneyComb LX2
Here are the specifications of my Setup:
Graphicscard: https://www.ixbt.com/video2/images/sapphire-15/x1300xt-front.jpg (Sapphire RADEON X1300 XT)
PSU: Seasonic 400 Watt PSU from around 2005
It looks something like this:
What I tried, to get it working:
To get to the console i first flashed an older COM Express build image, which didnt work. I tried the newest image available, which worked with PuTTY, but not with the video output.
I figured that the COM Express build image might not be made for video output, only for console access.
To get a video output to the monitor I read about the UEFI images provided by SolidRun.
I downloaded the newest possible image: lx2160acex7_2000_700_2900_8_5_2_sd_81b4bbe.img.xz
I tried flashing the image with both Rufus (version 3.14.1788) and dd, to see if the video output would start working. Flashing the Image only worked with dd. I flashed the image with dd under linux.
I also set the boot to SDcard with the little switches on the board (1:off,2:on,3:on,4:on,:5:on).
Luckily, I am able to connect to the board via the console port with PuTTY while the UEFI image is on the SDcard, hence there is a graphical textmode of the UEFI on PuTTY:
Overall this is what the setup looks like:
I got 3 fans connected: the orange one, the stock fan and one case fan.
Questions to the community: I have an AMD Radeon RX580, should i put it in, since i now have the UEFI image up and running?
