1.6       System Memory

The board has four DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:

  • Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support
  • Supports 1.2 V – 1.8 V DIMM memory voltage
  • Support for non-ECC, unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with x8 organization
  • 32 GB maximum total system memory (with 4 Gb memory technology). Refer to Section 2.1.1 on page 41 for information on the total amount of addressable memory.
  • Minimum total system memory: 1 GB using 1 Gb x8 module
  • Serial Presence Detect
  • DDR3 1333 MHz and DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM DIMMs

NOTE

To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance. If non-SPD memory is installed, the BIOS will attempt to correctly configure the memory settings, but performance and reliability may be impacted or the DIMMs may not function under the determined frequency.

1.6.1        Memory Configurations

The Intel Core i7, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i3, and Intel Pentium processors support the following types of memory organization:

  • Dual channel (Interleaved) mode. This mode offers the highest throughput for real world applications. Dual channel mode is enabled when the installed memory capacities of both DIMM channels are equal. Technology and device width can vary from one channel to the other but the installed memory capacity for each channel must be equal. If different speed DIMMs are used between channels, the slowest memory timing will be used.
  • Single channel (Asymmetric) mode. This mode is equivalent to single channel bandwidth operation for real world applications. This mode is used when only a single DIMM is installed or the memory capacities are unequal. Technology and device width can vary from one channel to the other. If different speed DIMMs are used between channels, the slowest memory timing will be used.

 

 

Refer to:

 

Figure 3 illustrates the memory channel and DIMM configuration.

 

Figure 3. Memory Channel and DIMM Configuration

 

1.7       Graphics Subsystem

The board supports system graphics through either Intel Graphics Technology or a PCI Express 2.0 x16 add-in graphics card.

1.7.1        Integrated Graphics

The board supports integrated graphics through the Intel® Flexible Display Interface (Intel® FDI) for processors with Intel Graphics Technology.

NOTE

If using a processor with integrated graphics, the board will support only two of the integrated graphics interfaces simultaneously: DisplayPort, DVI-I, DVI-D.

NOTE

The board will support up to two integrated graphics interfaces plus one PCI Express Graphics card simultaneously with required changes to the BIOS setup.

1.7.1.1        Analog Display (VGA)

The VGA port supports analog displays. The maximum supported resolution is 2048 x 1536 (QXGA) at a 75 Hz refresh rate. The VGA port is enabled for POST whenever a monitor is attached, regardless of the DVI-D connector status.

1.7.1.2        Digital Visual Interface (DVI-D)

The DVI-D port supports only digital DVI displays. The maximum supported resolution is 2048 x 1536 at 75 Hz refresh (QXGA). The DVI-D port is compliant with the DVI 1.0 specification.

1.7.2        PCI Express x16 Graphics

The Intel Core i7, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i3, and Intel Pentium processors in an LGA1155 socket support discrete add in graphics cards through the PCI Express 2.0 x16 graphics connector:

  • Supports PCI Express GEN2 frequency of 2.5 GHz resulting in 5.0 Gb/s each direction (500 MB/s) per lane. Maximum theoretical bandwidth on interface is 8 GB/s in each direction, simultaneously, when operating in x16 mode.
  • Supports PCI Express GEN1 frequency of 1.25 GHz resulting in 2.5 Gb/s each direction (250 MB/s) per lane. Maximum theoretical bandwidth on interface is

4 GB/s in each direction, simultaneously, when operating in x16 mode.

 

 

Refer to

 

1.8       USB

The board supports up to 14 USB 2.0 ports. The Intel Q67 Express Chipset provides the USB controller for the 2.0 ports. The port arrangement is as follows:

Six USB 2.0 ports are implemented with stacked back panel connectors         Eight USB 2.0 front panel ports implemented through four internal headers All 14 USB ports are high-speed, full-speed, and low-speed capable.

NOTES

Computer systems that have an unshielded cable attached to a USB port may not meet FCC Class B requirements, even if no device is attached to the cable. Use a shielded cable that meets the requirements for full-speed devices.

  • Two internal eSATA 3 Gb/s ports for external connectivity (red)

The PCH provides independent SATA ports with a theoretical maximum transfer rate of 6 Gb/s for two ports and 3 Gb/s for four ports. A point-to-point interface is used for host to device connections.

The underlying SATA functionality is transparent to the operating system. The SATA controller can operate in both legacy and native modes. In legacy mode, standard IDE I/O and IRQ resources are assigned (IRQ 14 and 15). In Native mode, standard PCI Conventional bus resource steering is used. Native mode is the preferred mode for configurations using the Windows* XP, Windows Vista*, and Windows 7* operating systems.

1.9.1.2        Intel® Rapid Recover Technology

The board incorporates the Intel® Rapid Recover Technology (Intel® RRT). Intel Rapid

Recover Technology is a feature of Intel Rapid Storage Technology. It uses RAID 1 (mirroring) functionality to copy data from a designated master drive to a designated recovery drive. The master drive data can be copied to the recovery drive either continuously or on request.

When using the continuous update policy, changes made to the data on the master drive while the recovery drive is disconnected or offline are automatically copied to the recovery drive when it is reconnected. When using the on request update policy, the master drive data can be restored to a previous state by copying the data on the recovery drive back to the master drive.

  • Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT)
  • Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT)
  • Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT)
  • Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d)
  • Intel Fast Call for Help (Intel FCFH)
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
  • KVM Remote Control

1.15.3.1     Intel® Active Management Technology

(Intel® AMT)

Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) offers IT organizations tamperresistant and persistent management capabilities. Specifically, IntelAMT is a hardware-based solution that uses out of band communication to manage access to client systems in addition to offering encrypted and persistent asset management and remote diagnostics and/or recovery capabilities for networked platforms. With Intel AMT, IT organizations can easily get accurate platform information, and can perform remote updating, diagnostics, debugging and repair of a system, regardless of the state of the operating system or the power state of the system.

The Intel Active Management Technology subsystem consists of:

  • Intel ME microcontroller embedded in the Intel Q67 PCH
  • Intel 82578LM Gigabit (10/100/1000 Mbits/s) Ethernet LAN controller
  • BIOS/SPI Flash (64 Mbits)
NOTE

Software with AMT capability is required to take advantage of Intel AMT platform management capabilities.

1.15.3.1.1          Intel AMT Features

The key features of Intel AMT include:

  • Secure Out of Band (OOB) system management that allows remote management of PCs regardless of system power or operating system state.

SSL 3.1/TLS encryption

HTTP authentication

TCP/IP

HTTP web GUI

XML/SOAP API

Web Services for Management (WS-MAN) protocol support

  • Remote troubleshooting and recovery that can significantly reduce desk-side visits and potentially increasing efficiency of IT technical staff.

System event log

IDE Redirection (IDE-R) or PXE boot: remote CD or network drive boot

Serial over LAN

OOB diagnostics

Remote control

Operating system repair

  • Proactive alerting that decreases downtime and minimizes time to repair.

Programmable policies

Operating system lock-up alert

Boot failure alert

Hardware failure alerts

  • Third party non-volatile storage that prevents users from removing critical inventory, remote control, or virus protection agents.

Nonvolatile storage for agents

Tamper-resistant

  • Remote hardware and software asset tracking that eliminates time-consuming manual inventory tracking, which also reduces asset accounting costs.

E-Asset Tag

HW/SW inventory

  • System Defense 2. In addition to the in-bound and out-bound packet filtering of the previous generation, System Defense 2 is an Intel AMT feature that uses advanced heuristics to help protect against the propagation of worms through the use of preset packet filters. The number of new connections made to a specific port or IP address are counted over a specific time window. If a preset threshold is exceeded, it will alert the Management Console and suspend the client’s network activity until the system can be remediated.
  • Remote Configuration (RCFG) minimizes the cost to deploy Intel AMT by eliminating the need for IT personnel to touch each client system prior to configuration. Remote Configuration consists of a single OEM BIOS/Firmware image that provides the Intel AMT client with information to authenticate connections and allows it to remotely perform a secure setup procedure. IT departments must acquire an appropriate Intel AMT-trusted certificate as well as use a remote management application that supports Remote Configuration.

Remote Configuration also requires the use of automatic IP addressing (DHCP).

  • KVM (Keyboard-Video-Mouse) Remote Control allows an IT administrator to remotely control a user’s keyboard without having to rely on third-party software applications. The user retains the ability to allow or discontinue the remote access through on-screen pop-up windows. The maximum resolution supported by KVM Remote Control is 1920 x 1200.
NOTE

KVM Remote Control requires the use of an Intel® processor with integrated graphics. If using simultaneous integrated graphics and add-in PCI Express Graphics, Integrated Graphics Device (IGD) must be set as the Primary Video Device in the BIOS Setup in order for POST information to be seen during a KVM Remote Control session. Likewise, IGD must be set as Primary Video Device in the operating system for mouse functionality during a KVM Remote Control session.

 

    PC Alarm Clock can wake the PC at scheduled times to run resource-intensive tasks during off hours, improving security and performance of the platform.

1.16.1      ACPI

ACPI gives the operating system direct control over the power management and Plug and Play functions of a computer. The use of ACPI with this board requires an operating system that provides full ACPI support. ACPI features include:

  • Plug and Play (including bus and device enumeration)
  • Power management control of individual devices, add-in boards (some add-in boards may require an ACPI-aware driver), video displays, and hard disk drives
  • Methods for achieving less than 15-watt system operation in the power-on/standby sleeping state
  • A Soft-off feature that enables the operating system to power-off the computer
  • Support for multiple wake-up events (see Table 7 on page 36)
  • Support for a front panel power and sleep mode switch  

Table 5 lists the system states based on how long the power switch is pressed, depending on how ACPI is configured with an ACPI-aware operating system.

1.16.1.1     System States and Power States

Under ACPI, the operating system directs all system and device power state transitions. The operating system puts devices in and out of low-power states based on user preferences and knowledge of how devices are being used by applications. Devices that are not being used can be turned off. The operating system uses information from applications and user settings to put the system as a whole into a low-power state.

Table 6 lists the power states supported by the board along with the associated system power targets. See the ACPI specification for a complete description of the various system and power states.

  2. Dependent on the standby power consumption of wake-up devices used in the system.
  3. S1 is not supported by the BIOS, it is included for reference only.
NOTE

In order to support processor Deep Sx states, ME Power Package 1 (ME On in S0) must be selected in the BIOS setup. However, this will disable Intel AMT Out-of-Band (OOB) support, including the ability to wake the system using Intel AMT.

1.16.1.2     Wake-up Devices and Events

Table 7 lists the devices or specific events that can wake the computer from specific states.

  • USB ports are turned off during S4/S5 states.
NOTE

The use of these wake-up events from an ACPI state requires an operating system that provides full ACPI support. In addition, software, drivers, and peripherals must fully support ACPI wake events.

1.16.2      Hardware Support

CAUTION

Ensure that the power supply provides adequate +5 V standby current if LAN wake capabilities and Instantly Available PC technology features are used. Failure to do so can damage the power supply. The total amount of standby current required depends on the wake devices supported and manufacturing options.  

The board provides several power management hardware features, including:

  • Power connector
  • Fan headers
  • LAN wake capabilities
  • Instantly Available PC technology
  • Wake from USB
  • PME# signal wake-up support
  • WAKE# signal wake-up support
  • Wake from serial port
  • Wake from PS/2
  • +5 V Standby Power Indicator LED

LAN wake capabilities and Instantly Available PC technology require power from the +5 V standby line.

NOTE

The use of Wake from USB from an ACPI state requires an operating system that provides full ACPI support.

1.16.2.1     Power Connector

ATX12V-compliant power supplies can turn off the system power through system control. When an ACPI-enabled system receives the correct command, the power supply removes all non-standby voltages.

When resuming from an AC power failure, the computer returns to the power state it was in before power was interrupted (on or off). The computer’s response can be set using the Last Power State feature in the BIOS Setup program’s Boot menu.

1.16.2.2     Fan Headers

The function/operation of the fan headers is as follows:

  • The fans are on when the board is in the S0 state
  • The fans are off when the board is in the S3, S4, or S5 state
  • Each fan header is wired to a fan tachometer input of the hardware monitoring and fan control ASIC
  • All fan headers support closed-loop fan control that can adjust the fan speed or switch the fan on or off as needed
  • All fan headers have a +12 V DC connection
  • 4-pin fan headers are controlled by Pulse Width Modulation
  • The front fan and rear fan headers also support linear fan control on 3-wire fans

The location of the fan headers and sensors for thermal monitoring

Figure 6, page 27

1.16.2.3     LAN Wake Capabilities

CAUTION

For LAN wake capabilities, the +5 V standby line for the power supply must be capable of providing adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate standby current when implementing LAN wake capabilities can damage the power supply.  

LAN wake capabilities enable remote wake-up of the computer through a network. The LAN subsystem monitors network traffic at the Media Independent Interface. Upon detecting a Magic Packet* frame, the LAN subsystem asserts a wake-up signal that powers up the computer.

1.16.2.4     Instantly Available PC Technology

CAUTION

For Instantly Available PC technology, the +5 V standby line for the power supply must be capable of providing adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate standby current when implementing Instantly Available PC technology can damage the power supply.  

Instantly Available PC technology enables the board to enter the ACPI S3 (Suspend-toRAM) sleep-state. While in the S3 sleep-state, the computer will appear to be off (the power supply is off and the front panel power LED will behave as configured by the BIOS “S3 State Indicator” option). When signaled by a wake-up device or event, the system quickly returns to its last known wake state. Table 7 on page 36 lists the devices and events that can wake the computer from the S3 state.

The board supports the PCI Bus Power Management Interface Specification. Add-in boards that also support this specification can participate in power management and can be used to wake the computer.  

The use of Instantly Available PC technology requires operating system support and PCI 2.2 compliant add-in cards, PCI Express add-in cards, and drivers.

1.16.2.5     Wake from USB

USB bus activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S3 state.

NOTE

Wake from USB requires the use of a USB peripheral that supports Wake from USB and is supported by the operating system.

1.16.2.6     PME# Signal Wake-up Support

When the PME# signal on the Conventional PCI bus is asserted, the computer wakes from an ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state.

1.16.2.7     WAKE# Signal Wake-up Support

When the WAKE# signal on a PCI Express add-in card is asserted, the computer wakes from an ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state.

1.16.2.8     Wake from Serial Port

Serial port activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S3 state.

1.16.2.9     Wake from PS/2 Devices

PS/2 device activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state. However, when the computer is in an S4 or S5 state, the only PS/2 activity that will wake the computer is the alt-PrtScrn key combination on the keyboard.

1.16.2.10+5 V Standby Power LED

The green +5 V standby power indicator LED shows that power is still present even when the computer appears to be off. Figure 7 shows the location of the Standby Power indicator LED on the board.  

CAUTION

If AC power has been switched off and the standby power indicators are still lit, disconnect the power cord before installing or removing any devices connected to the board. Failure to do so could damage the board and any attached devices.

2       Technical Reference

 

2.1       Memory Resources

2.1.1        Addressable Memory

The board utilizes 32 GB of addressable system memory. Typically the address space that is allocated for Conventional PCI bus add-in cards, PCI Express configuration space, BIOS (SPI Flash device), and chipset overhead resides above the top of DRAM (total system memory). On a system that has 32 GB of system memory installed, it is not possible to use all of the installed memory due to system address space being allocated for other system critical functions. These functions include the following:

  • BIOS/SPI Flash device (64 Mbit)
  • Local APIC (19 MB)
  • Direct Media Interface (40 MB)
  • Front side bus interrupts (17 MB)
  • PCI Express configuration space (256 MB)
  • PCH base address registers PCI Express ports (up to 256 MB)
  • Memory-mapped I/O that is dynamically allocated for Conventional PCI and PCI Express add-in cards (256 MB)

The board provides the capability to reclaim the physical memory overlapped by the memory mapped I/O logical address space. The board remaps physical memory from the top of usable DRAM boundary to the 4 GB boundary to an equivalent sized logical address range located just above the 4 GB boundary. Figure 8 shows a schematic of the system memory map. All installed system memory can be used when there is no overlap of system addresses.  

NOTE

32-bit operating systems may not be able to make use of physical memory higher than 4 GB. Check with your operating system vendor.

NOTE

32-bit operating systems may see less available memory than what is shown in Section 2.1.1 due to CPU MTRR cache allocation.

2.2       Connectors and Headers

CAUTION

Only the following connectors and headers have overcurrent protection: back panel and front panel USB, and PS/2.

The other internal connectors and headers are not overcurrent protected and should connect only to devices inside the computer’s chassis, such as fans and internal peripherals. Do not use these connectors or headers to power devices external to the computer’s chassis. A fault in the load presented by the external devices could cause damage to the computer, the power cable, and the external devices themselves.

Furthermore, improper connection of USB header single wire connectors may eventually overload the overcurrent protection and cause damage to the board.

This section describes the board’s connectors. The connectors can be divided into these groups:

  • Back panel I/O connectors
  • Component-side I/O connectors and headers (see page 45)

2.2.2.2        Add-in Card Connectors

The board has the following add-in card connectors:

  • PCI Express 2.0 x16: one PCI Express 2.0 x16 connector. This connector supports simultaneous transfer speeds of up to 8 GB/s of peak bandwidth per direction.
  • PCI Express 2.0 x4: one PCI Express 2.0 x4 connector. The x4 interface supports simultaneous transfer speeds up to 500 MB/s of peak bandwidth per direction and up to 4 GB/s concurrent bandwidth.
  • PCI Express 2.0 x1: one PCI Express 2.0 x1 connector. The x1 interface supports simultaneous transfer speeds up to 1 GB/s of peak bandwidth per direction and up to 2 GB/s concurrent bandwidth.
  • One Conventional PCI (rev 2.3 compliant) connector.  

Note the following considerations for the Conventional PCI bus connector:

  • The Conventional PCI bus connector is bus master capable.
  • SMBus signals are routed to the Conventional PCI bus connector. This enables Conventional PCI bus add-in boards with SMBus support to access sensor data on the desktop board. The specific SMBus signals are as follows:

The SMBus clock line is connected to pin A40.

The SMBus data line is connected to pin A41.

 

2.2.2.3        Power Supply Connectors

The board has the following power supply connectors:

  • Main power – a 2 x 12 connector. This connector is compatible with 2 x 10 connectors previously used on Intel Desktop boards. The board supports the use of ATX12V power supplies with either 2 x 10 or 2 x 12 main power cables. When using a power supply with a 2 x 10 main power cable, pins 11, 12, 23, and 24 must remain unconnected.  
  • Processor core power – a 2 x 2 connector. This connector provides power directly to the processor voltage regulator and must always be used. Failure to do so will prevent the board from booting.
CAUTION

If a high power (75 W or greater) add-in card is installed in the PCI Express x16 connector, that card must also be connected directly to the power supply. Failure to do so may cause damage to the board and the add-in card.

2.5    Mechanical Considerations

2.5.1        Form Factor

The board is designed to fit into a microATX form-factor chassis. Figure 15 illustrates the mechanical form factor for the board. Dimensions are given in inches

[millimeters]. The outer dimensions are 9.60 inches by 9.60 inches

[243.84 millimeters by 243.84 millimeters]. Location of the I/O connectors and mounting holes are in compliance with the ATX specification.

 

Figure 15. Board Dimensions

2.6    Electrical Considerations

2.6.1        Power Supply Considerations

CAUTION

The +5 V standby line from the power supply must be capable of providing adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to do so can damage the power supply. The total amount of standby current required depends on the wake devices supported and manufacturing options.  

Additional power required will depend on configurations chosen by the integrator.

The power supply must comply with the indicated parameters of the ATX form factor specification.

  • The potential relation between 3.3 VDC and +5 VDC power rails
  • The current capability of the +5 VSB line
  • All timing parameters
  • All voltage tolerances

For example, for a system consisting of a supported 95 W processor (see Section 1.4 on page 14 for information on supported processors), 2 GB DDR3 RAM, one high end video card, one hard disk drive, one optical drive, and all board peripherals enabled, the minimum recommended power supply is 460 W.

2.6.2        Fan Header Current Capability

CAUTION

The processor fan must be connected to the processor fan header, not to a chassis fan header. Connecting the processor fan to a chassis fan header may result in onboard component damage that will halt fan operation.

Table 30 lists the current capability of the fan headers.

2.6.3        Add-in Board Considerations

The board is designed to provide 2 A (average) of current for each add-in board from the +5 V rail. The total +5 V current draw for add-in boards for a fully loaded board (all expansion slots filled) must not exceed the system’s power supply +5 V maximum current.

2.7       Thermal Considerations

CAUTION

A chassis with a maximum internal ambient temperature of 38 oC at the processor fan inlet is required. Use of a processor heat sink that provides omni-directional airflow to maintain required airflow across the processor voltage regulator area is highly recommended. For a list of chassis that have been tested with Intel desktop boards please refer to the following website:  

http://www3.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/tech_reference/53211.htm

All responsibility for determining the adequacy of any thermal or system design remains solely with the reader. Intel makes no warranties or representations that merely following the instructions presented in this document will result in a system with adequate thermal performance.

CAUTION

The ambient temperature must not exceed the board’s maximum operating temperature. Failure to do so could cause components to exceed their maximum case temperature and malfunction. For information about the maximum operating temperature, see the environmental specifications in Section 2.9.

CAUTION

Ensure that proper airflow is maintained in the processor voltage regulator circuit. Failure to do so may result in damage to the voltage regulator circuit.

3       Overview of BIOS Features

 

3.1       Introduction

The board uses an Intel BIOS that is stored in a 64 Mbit (8,192 KB) Serial Peripheral Interface Flash Memory (SPI Flash) device which can be updated using a set of utilities. The SPI Flash contains the BIOS Setup program, POST, LAN EEPROM information, Plug and Play support, and other firmware.

The BIOS displays a message during POST identifying the type of BIOS and a revision code. The initial production BIOSs are identified as SWQ6710H.86A.

The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer. The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins. The menu bar is shown below.

NOTE

The maintenance menu is displayed only when the board is in configure mode. Section 2.3 on page 56 shows how to put the board in configure mode.

CAUTION

Resetting the BIOS to defaults may result in the system becoming unbootable or corrupting the HDD if RAID is used. This is due to the fact that Chipset-SATA Mode now defaults to AHCI.

3.2       System Management BIOS (SMBIOS)

SMBIOS is a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compliant method for managing computers in a managed network.  

The main component of SMBIOS is the Management Information Format (MIF) database, which contains information about the computing system and its components. Using SMBIOS, a system administrator can obtain the system types, capabilities, operational status, and installation dates for system components. The MIF database defines the data and provides the method for accessing this information. The BIOS enables applications such as third-party management software to use SMBIOS. The BIOS stores and reports the following SMBIOS information:

  • BIOS data, such as the BIOS revision level
  • Fixed-system data, such as peripherals, serial numbers, and asset tags
  • Resource data, such as memory size, cache size, and processor speed
  • Dynamic data, such as event detection and error logging

Non-Plug and Play operating systems require an additional interface for obtaining the SMBIOS information. The BIOS supports an SMBIOS table interface for such operating systems. Using this support, an SMBIOS service-level application running on a non-Plug and Play operating system can obtain the SMBIOS information. Additional board information can be found in the BIOS under the Additional Information header under the Main BIOS page.

3.3       Legacy USB Support

Legacy USB support enables USB devices to be used even when the operating system’s USB drivers are not yet available. Legacy USB support is used to access the BIOS Setup program, and to install an operating system that supports USB. By default, Legacy USB support is set to Enabled.

Legacy USB support operates as follows:

  1. When you apply power to the computer, legacy support is disabled.
  2. POST begins.
  3. Legacy USB support is enabled by the BIOS allowing you to use a USB keyboard to enter and configure the BIOS Setup program and the maintenance menu.
  4. POST completes.
  5. The operating system loads. While the operating system is loading, USB keyboards and mice are recognized and may be used to configure the operating system. (Keyboards and mice are not recognized during this period if Legacy USB support was set to Disabled in the BIOS Setup program.)
  6. After the operating system loads the USB drivers, all legacy and non-legacy USB devices are recognized by the operating system, and Legacy USB support from the BIOS is no longer used.

3.4       BIOS Updates

The BIOS can be updated using either of the following utilities, which are available on the Intel World Wide Web site:

  • Intel® Express BIOS Update utility, which enables automated updating while in the Windows environment. Using this utility, the BIOS can be updated from a file on a hard disk, a USB drive (a flash drive or a USB drive), or an optical drive.
  • Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility, which requires booting from DOS. Using this utility, the BIOS can be updated from a file on a hard disk, a USB drive (a flash drive or a USB drive), or an optical drive.
  • Intel® F7 switch allows a user to select where the BIOS .bio file is located and perform the update from that location/device. Similar to performing a BIOS Recovery without removing the BIOS configuration jumper.

Both utilities verify that the updated BIOS matches the target system to prevent accidentally installing an incompatible BIOS.

NOTE

Review the instructions distributed with the upgrade utility before attempting a BIOS update.

3.5       BIOS Recovery

It is unlikely that anything will interrupt a BIOS update; however, if an interruption occurs, the BIOS could be damaged. Table 35 lists the drives and media types that can and cannot be used for BIOS recovery. The BIOS recovery media does not need to be made bootable however, it must contain the motherboard .bio file at the root level.

Table 35. Acceptable Drives/Media Types for BIOS Recovery

3.6       Boot Options

In the BIOS Setup program, the user can choose to boot from a hard drive, optical drive, removable drive, or the network. The default setting is for the optical drive to be the first boot device, the hard drive second, removable drive third, and the network fourth.

3.6.1        Optical Drive Boot

Booting from the optical drive is supported in compliance to the El Torito bootable CD-ROM format specification. Under the Boot menu in the BIOS Setup program, the optical drive is listed as a boot device. Boot devices are defined in priority order. Accordingly, if there is not a bootable CD in the optical drive, the system will attempt to boot from the next defined drive.

3.6.2        Network Boot

The network can be selected as a boot device. This selection allows booting from the onboard LAN or a network add-in card with a remote boot ROM installed.

Pressing the <F12> key during POST automatically forces booting from the LAN. To use this key during POST, the User Access Level in the BIOS Setup program's Security menu must be set to Full.

3.6.3        Booting Without Attached Devices

For use in embedded applications, the BIOS has been designed so that after passing the POST, the operating system loader is invoked even if the following devices are not present:

  • Video adapter
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse

3.6.4        Changing the Default Boot Device During POST

Pressing the <F10> key during POST causes a boot device menu to be displayed. This menu displays the list of available boot devices. Table 36 lists the boot device menu options.

Table 36. Boot Device Menu Options

Boot Device Menu Function Keys

Description

<> or <>

Selects a default boot device

<Enter>

Exits the menu, and boots from the selected device

<Esc>

Exits the menu and boots according to the boot priority defined through BIOS setup

 

3.7       Hard Disk Drive Password Security Feature

The Hard Disk Drive Password Security feature blocks read and write accesses to the hard disk drive until the correct password is given. Hard Disk Drive Passwords are set in BIOS SETUP and are prompted for during BIOS POST. For convenient support of S3 resume, the system BIOS will automatically unlock drives on resume from S3.

The User hard disk drive password, when installed, will be required upon each powercycle until the Master Key or User hard disk drive password is submitted.

The Master Key hard disk drive password, when installed, will not lock the drive. The

Master Key hard disk drive password exists as an unlock override in the event that the User hard disk drive password is forgotten. Only the installation of the User hard disk drive password will cause a hard disk to be locked upon a system power-cycle.

Table 37 shows the effects of setting the Hard Disk Drive Passwords.

Table 37. Master Key and User Hard Drive Password Functions

Password Set

Password During Boot

Neither

None

Master only

None

Master and User Set

Master or User

 

During every POST, if a User hard disk drive password is set, POST execution will pause with the following prompt to force the user to enter the Master Key or User hard disk drive password:

Enter Hard Disk Drive Password:

Upon successful entry of the Master Key or User hard disk drive password, the system will continue with normal POST.

If the hard disk drive password is not correctly entered, the system will go back to the above prompt. The user will have three attempts to correctly enter the hard diskdrive password. After the third unsuccessful hard disk drive password attempt, the system will halt with the message:

Hard Disk Drive Password Entry Error

A manual power cycle will be required to resume system operation.

NOTE

As implemented on DQ67OW, Hard Disk Drive Password Security is only supported on SATA port 0. The passwords are stored on the hard disk drive so if the drive is relocated to another SATA port or computer that does not support Hard Disk Drive Password Security feature, the drive will not be accessible.

NOTE

Hard Disk Drive Password Security is not supported in PCH RAID mode.Secured hard disk drives attached to the system when the system is in PCH RAID mode will not be accessible due to the disabling of BIOS Hard Disk Drive Password support.

3.8       BIOS Security Features

The BIOS includes security features that restrict access to the BIOS Setup program and who can boot the computer. A supervisor password and a user password can be set for the BIOS Setup program and for booting the computer, with the following restrictions:

  • The supervisor password gives unrestricted access to view and change all the Setup options in the BIOS Setup program. This is the supervisor mode.
  • The user password gives restricted access to view and change Setup options in the BIOS Setup program. This is the user mode.
  • If only the supervisor password is set, pressing the <Enter> key at the password prompt of the BIOS Setup program allows the user restricted access to Setup.
  • If both the supervisor and user passwords are set, users can enter either the supervisor password or the user password to access Setup. Users have access to Setup respective to which password is entered.  
  • Setting the user password restricts who can boot the computer. The password prompt will be displayed before the computer is booted. If only the supervisor password is set, the computer boots without asking for a password. If both passwords are set, the user can enter either password to boot the computer.  
  • For enhanced security, use different passwords for the supervisor and user passwords.
  • Valid password characters are A-Z, a-z, and 0-9. Passwords may be up to 16 characters in length.

Table 38 shows the effects of setting the supervisor password and user password. This table is for reference only and is not displayed on the screen.

4.4       BIOS Error Messages

Table 41 lists the error messages and provides a brief description of each.

Table 41. BIOS Error Messages

Error Message

Explanation

CMOS Battery Low

The battery may be losing power. Replace the battery soon.

CMOS Checksum Bad

The CMOS checksum is incorrect. CMOS memory may have been corrupted. Run Setup to reset values.

Memory Size Decreased

Memory size has decreased since the last boot.   If no memory was removed, then memory may be bad.

No Boot Device Available

System did not find a device to boot.

4.5       Port 80h POST Codes

During the POST, the BIOS generates diagnostic progress codes (POST codes) to I/O port 80h. If the POST fails, execution stops and the last POST code generated is left at port 80h. This code is useful for determining the point where an error occurred.

Displaying the POST codes requires a Conventional PCI bus add-in card, often called a POST card. The POST card can decode the port and display the contents on a medium such as a seven-segment display.  

NOTE

The POST card must be installed in the Conventional PCI bus connector.

The following tables provide information about the POST codes generated by the BIOS:

  • Table 42 lists the Port 80h POST code ranges
  • Table 43 lists the Port 80h POST codes themselves
  • Table 44 lists the Port 80h POST sequence

NOTE

In the tables listed above, all POST codes and range values are listed in hexadecimal.
