I have purchased two 86duino one boards and a 86 duino one VGA card.
The SysImage and Bootloader have been installed with the instruction of this link.

What's going on after installation of Sysimage and bootloader?

I am going to connect an IP camera or a OV7670 camera to the 86duino one, in which I would like to run OpenCV on the board so as to do the object tracing.
Meanwhile, the real time video streaming on a distant PC is required.

CryPlease give me a helping hand! Thank you!

Hello there,
1-first you need to enable the VGA card in your dunio board. this can be done by using the latest sysimage and update to the latest BIOS from here :
2-Next, follow the instructions here on how to actually update the bios:
3-Once the bios is successful, you will be able to power cycle your board and see some output coming out of the VGA.
4- to get to DOS prompt, you will need to REM _v86boot.exe line from your autoexec.bat file.

Another path that I would suggest for your OpenCV is using the link below to download debian linux and get it running in just 10 minutes or less. I have done it and its works great! Link for this linux image and instruction on how to get it working is here:

There are lots more info and links to dig out from this forum, its just spread since its new product and I am in the same boat with you.

Good luck!

Hello asian55,

Thanks for your help!
I have finished the first 2 steps.
However I can't get the meaning of step 3 and 4.
For step 3, am I need to power off the 86duino one (with 86duino VGA) and restart it?
As for step 4, I really don't know the details, could you please elaborate it more (also any screen captures are welcomed ;P).

Thank you very much!Kiss

Hello and sorry for being late. I was away from computers for couple days :)

in Step 3, it doesn't really matter whether you have the VGA card installed or not. The latest Bios is the one that actually activate the VGA functionality. So I just meant that once you successful in updating the BIOS to Guava 0.9 (I think its the latest), then power cycle the board while the VGA card is connected to the monitor and hopefully you see something on the screen.

in Step 4, you will have to do it through your PC while the SD card is connected to a card reader. in there, locate the Autoexec.bat file and just comment out the mentioned files up above by using the word REM. Once this is done, you can save your autoexec.bat and then plug the card back into your board and power it up. Now you should be able to see the DOS prompt.

Good luck!

Hey guys!

I can see the existence of the VGA now on the screen. Kiss
However, some problems I have got then. As the screen captured:Cry

1. I am using a 32GB micro-SD card to install the sysImage, but only 964MB ROM has been detected.
2. There should be a row " C:\" for typing in the last row, but it is missing.
3. I have tried to plug in a mouse and keyboard with a usb hub to the 86duino. Only the mouse can be detected.
How do you guys connect the mouse accompany with the keyboard?

Many thanks!Kiss

Hello, annawingyanlee
for your questions:

1. i encounter the same too, and am trying to use disk manager tool to restore it's size on Windows. If worked, i will post the steps here again.
2. like asian55 said, follow the Step 4, you will see "C:\" in the last row after doing. Note that you will not upload program by 86Duino IDE if comment out "_v86boot" line in autoexec.bat.
3. try to upload the keyboard and mouse examples in USBHost Library by 86Duino IDE. On my 86Duino One, they work great via a usb hub.

hope to help you.
