(SOLVED) BMW Super ICOM opening with crashed issue

Here is the solution to the computer crashed problem when opening BMW Super ICOM ISTA-D ISTA-P diagnostic & programming hard drive.


I used perfect version BMW ICOM A2 with super version software. But when I opened super icom to enter, the computer crashed/ freezed.



I talked with the seller, and some suggestion are offered by OBD365 technicians.


They said  SUPER ICOM software users need :


1 to setup current date and time


2 to set to achi mode


3 to change another computer to operate, Dell laptop or Dell CPU 2.0+ RAM 4gb+

Laptop tested ok for BMW ICOM:

-Dell laptops available:

D630, D620, E6420, E6400 E49, E420, E430, G570, X201, X200, X201T, T60, T61, T400, X61T, X60, X60

-other laptop with Intel chipset, such as I3 I5 / I7 series.

(No time limitation for use. Once insert hard disk into your computer can automatically install.)


Tips for BMW ICOM usage:
1) DO NOT connect the internet or original factory server.
2) DO NOT change the icom software setup
3) Change the PC time to the current time
Attention: From software 2014.1 version, start your car first, then connect the this BMW ICOM hardware with your car, wait until the system light of hardware does not flash, then use network cable to connect BMW ICOM hardware with your laptop. Please make sure you use BMW ICOM as this order, otherwise ista-p will close automitacally after open. DO NOT connect internet and the server of original when you use our software. Just follow our video to install and use it.


It did work. I used Super ICOM on another laptop- Dell d30. Thanks for the quick reply.
