I have bougth this device and got an issue with overheating the CPU when used for video play by KODI/XBMC player. The same issues were with playing Youtube videos.
So I have decided to investigate an issue and first my thoughts were about software/firmware.
But when I opened the case I saw "heatsink".
Well. It was attached to CPU by using sort of glue, not the termal paste.
I always having the issues during updating bios under linux/ubuntu.
All bios updaters developed by vendors for processing under DOS/Windows, but very small amount of them have thoughts about linux users.
I have written article about using flashrom application for updating bios in ubuntu/linux(in ukrainian), but it is not universal and has limited support of devices.
Here I want to share ability to have boot image item in grub with freedos installed for making possible boot into and update bios for Your mobo.
This article was born due to my successfull hardware upgrade from ASUS P5K-SE to GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L.
After that I decided to write mini how-to that can help others with their feature upgrades for their Mac-ready hardware configurations.
So. If You are planning to live with Mac OS - nice practice is working with USB2SATA adapter as repair solution when drivers failed to load Your system after software update or hardware upgrade.
Such devices are cheap and I see no problems for getting it.
