Using an APU2 from pcengines, some USB keys are not detected by the bios.
I've tested with an Sandisk extrem USB3.0, it works, but it seems to do not work with USB3.0/USB3.1 keys.

I've unsuccessfully tried with :
Kingston DT50
Kingston datatraveler G4
Sandisk SDDD3-64G-G46

These keys are 3.1 compliant.

Any way to fix it ?

Since USB device support is not a coreboot task but the payloads', that depends a lot on what payload (and therefore USB driver) you're using.

Ok.. so how can I correct this ? How provides that payload ? I'm not familiar with it.

Can you check SeaBIOS from PC Engines repository tag rel- ?

I don't know how to update the pcengines bios using this seabios

Actually it's running

I agree that this is a payload issue, but I think we're seeing the same thing, or at least something similar with libpayload on other AMD platforms. I can at least grab a trace with the protocol analyzer and see what shows up there.
