Masters and Slaves
N a vig a ting the S etup Menus
The Master and Slave settings on the Main Menu control these types of
devices:
The Menu Bar at the top of the window lists these selections:
Hard-disk drives
Main
Advanced
Removable-disk drives
CD-ROM drives
Security
PhoenixBIOS 4.04 supports up to two IDE disk adapters, called primary and
secondary adapters. Each adapter supports one master drive and and one
optional slave drive in these possible combinations:
Power
Exit
Use this menu for basic system configuration.
Use this menu to set the Advanced Features available on your
system's chipset.
Use this menu to set User and Supervisor Passwords and the Backup
and Virus-Check reminders.
Use this menu to configure Power-Management features.
Exits the current menu.
Use the left/right "← →" arrow keys to make a selection.
1 Master
1 Master, 1 Slave
2 Masters
2 Masters, 1 Slave
2 Masters, 2 Slaves
There is one IDE connector for each adapter on your machine, usually labelled
"Pimary IDE" and "Secondary IDE." There are usually two connectors on each
ribbon cable attached to each IDE connector. When you have connected two
drives to these connectors, the one on the end of the cable is the Master.
When you enter Setup, the Main Menu displays the results of Autotyping–
information each drive provides about its own size and other characteristics–and
how they are arranged as Masters or Slaves on your machine.
See the section below, "Exiting Setup," for a description on exiting the Main
Menu.
The Legend Bar
Use the keys listed in the legend bar on the bottom to make your selections or
exit the current menu. The chart on the following page describes the legend keys
and their alternates:

<Tab> or <Shift-Tab>
<Home> or <End>
<PgUp> or <PgDn>
<F5> or <->
<F6> or <+> or <Space>
<F9>
Note: Do not attempt to change these settings unless you have an installed
drive that does not autotype properly (such as an older hard-disk drive that
does not support autotyping).
If you need to change your drive settings, use one of the Master or Slave submenu as explained in the following.The Menu Bar

Description
None = Autotyping is not able to supply
the drive type or end user has selected
None, disabling any drive that may be
installed.
1 to 39 = Fills in all remaining fields with
values for predefined hard-disk type.
User = You supply the hard-disk drive
information in the following fields.
Auto = Autotyping, the drive itself
supplies the information.
IDE Removable = Removable disk drive
CD-ROM = CD-ROM drive.
ATAPI Removable = Removable disk
drive.
Number of cylinders.
Number of read/write heads.
Number of sectors per track.
Any selection except Disabled determines
the number of sectors transferred per
block. Standard is 1 sector per block.
Enabling cache saves time for the CPU by holding data most recently accessed
in regular memory (dynamic RAM or DRAM) in a special storage area of static
RAM (SRAM), which is faster. Before accessing regular memory, the CPU first
accesses the cache. If it does not find the data it is looking for there, it accesses
regular memory.
Selecting "Memory Cache" from the Main menu displays a menu like the one
shown here. The actual features displayed depend on your system's hardware.

Enabled caches both reads and writes to
memory. Disabled caches reads only.
Sets the number of clock pulses for
reading from the cache. Shorter number
of pulses improves performance.
Sets the number of clock pulses for

pulses improves performance.
Caches the system BIOS and improves
performance.
Caches the video BIOS and improves
performance.
Controls caching of individual segments
of memory usually reserved for
shadowing system or option ROMs
Specifies areas of regular and extended
memory as non-cacheable regions.
Multiples of 64 define start of noncacheable region 0 in kilobytes.
Disabling makes this region available
for cache. Multiples of 64 define size of
non-cacheable region 0 in kilobytes.
Multiples of 64 define start of noncacheable region 1 in kilobytes.
Disabling makes this region available

Note: Specifying any drive as a boot drive on the Boot Menu requires the
installation of an operating system on that drive. Many PCs come with an
operating system already installed on the hard drive (C:), which is often used
for booting the operating system. To use another drive as a bootable drive
may require your installing the operating system on it.
Selecting "Boot" from the Menu Bar displays the Boot menu, which looks like

Load Setup Defaults
To display the default values for all the Setup menus, select "Load Setup
Defaults" from the Main Menu. The program displays this message:
ROM Default values have been loaded!
Press <space> to continue
If, during bootup, the BIOS program detects a problem in the integrity of values
stored in CMOS, it displays these messages:
System CMOS checksum bad - run SETUP
Press <F1> to resume, <F2> to Setup
The CMOS values have been corrupted or modified incorrectly, perhaps by an
application program that changes data stored in CMOS.
Press <F1> to resume the boot or <F2> to run Setup with the ROM default
values already loaded into the menus. You can make other changes before saving
the values to CMOS.
The following sections describe each of the options on this menu. Note that
<Esc> does not exit this menu. You must select one of the items from the menu
or menu bar to exit.
Discard Changes
If, during a Setup Session, you change your mind about changes you have made
and have not yet saved the values to CMOS, you can restore the values you
previously saved to CMOS.
Exit Saving Values
After making your selections on the Setup menus, always select either "Exit
Saving Valuet" or "Save Changes." Both procedures store the selections
displayed in the menus in CMOS (short for "battery-backed CMOS RAM") a
special section of memory that stays on after you turn your system off. The next
time you boot your computer, the BIOS configures your system according to the
Setup selections stored in CMOS.
Selecting “Discard Changes” on the Exit menu updates all the selections and
displays this message:
CMOS values have been loaded!
Press <space> to continue
Save Changes
After you save your selections, the program displays this message:
Values have been saved to CMOS!
Press <space> to continue
Selecting “Save Changes” saves all the selections without exiting Setup. You can
return to the other menus if you want to review and change your selections.
If you attempt to exit without saving, the program asks if you want to save before
exiting.
During bootup, PhoenixBIOS attempts to load the values saved in CMOS. If
those values cause the system boot to fail, reboot and press <F2> to enter Setup.
In Setup, you can get the Default Values (as described below) or try to change
the selections that caused the boot to fail.
