Opal Kelly USB Devices Driver

  

First determine that you are running a UEFI system

  1. Opal Kelly Usb Devices Driver Win 7
  2. Opal Kelly Usb Devices Driver Updater

If it is a legacy BIOS system, the SED (Opal) functionality will not be able to run and is disabled.

Linux is supported by Device Solutions and Timesys. Documentation and source is on-line here. Linux 3.14.38 / Yocto 1.8 (Fido) is in development. Contact us for details. Windows Embedded Compact 7 & 2013. Opal-6 is supported by the GuruCE i.MX6 BSP. The latest release can be download from their web site. C: Program Files Opal Kelly FrontPanelUSB uninst-frontpanelusb-driver.exe is the full command line if you want to uninstall Opal Kelly FrontPanel USB Driver. Uninst-frontpanelusb-driver.exe is the programs's main file and it takes circa 49.37 KB (50555 bytes) on disk. Drivers For Gaming Device. 1731; 1731A; 1736; 1737. Drivers For USB LAN. 0807; 08071707; Having Problem in getting the required driver.

On Windows 8 or later:

Press the <Windows> + R keys to open the Run dialog, type msinfo32, and press Enter. In the right pane of System Summary in System Information, inspect if the BIOS Mode value says Legacy or UEFI.

On Windows 7 it is unlikely that the system is running in UEFI mode unless specific measures have been taken to install in UEFI mode, and you then already know that the system is running UEFI.

If you are on a UEFI system

Download and run UEFI Opal Tool (UEFI Opal Tool). (Note: Both Opal tools support NVMe.)

Usage:
1. Format an empty USB drive with FAT32 file system using Windows OS:

A. Go to 'My Computer'
B. Right-click on the USB drive
C. Choose 'Format...'
D. In the dialog, under 'File system', choose 'FAT32'
E. Click on 'Start'
F. Wait for completion.

2. Copy the EFI folder in the archive to the root of the formatted USB drive.
3. Disable the Secure Boot on the UEFI machine to be tested (because the tool is not signed for Secure Boot mode).
4. Boot from the USB drive on the computer to be tested. Make sure the USB drive is booted in UEFI mode.

Explanation

The tool will present a menu with choices:

1) Display SED (Opal) basic info

2) Revert disk (PSID revert)

3) Exit

Choice 1) will print an assessment of the firmware and hardware capabilities and report whether or not it will be possible to use SED (Opal) encryption with Check Point FDE. Example outputs from different scenarios are shown below.

Choice 2) will prompt for the PSID PIN to be entered. Following correct entry of the PSID PIN, the revert operation will have to be confirmed. If confirmed, the disk will be reverted. NOTE: A PSID revert will irrevocably erase all data on the disk.

Choice 3) will exit the tool and return to the firmware.

Notes:

  • After the tool has been used, Secure Boot should be re-enabled to ensure secure operation of the machine.
  • If the disk needs to be reverted, it can be done with either the UEFI opal tool described in this article, or the Windows equivalent, see also sk92970.

Open two devices

You may open and communicate with two devices in the same program. Each requires its own instance of okCFrontPanel. The code below opens the device with serial “2002000ABC” as instance “dev1” and the device with serial “2002000DEF” as “dev2”. Recall that once a device is opened, it is unavailable to other processes.

It is a good idea to implement a check to make sure you know which device corresponds to each okCFrontPanel object. This can be done by verifying device model, version, serial number, or other identifying information using the okTDeviceInfo struct.
