Server Board Use Disclaimer
Intel Corporation server boards support add-in peripherals and contain a number of high-density
VLSI and power delivery components that need adequate airflow to cool. Intel ensures through
its own chassis development and testing that when Intel server building blocks are used
together, the fully integrated system will meet the intended thermal requirements of these
components. It is the responsibility of the system integrator who chooses not to use Intel
developed server building blocks to consult vendor datasheets and operating parameters to
determine the amount of air flow required for their specific application and environmental
conditions. Intel Corporation cannot be held responsible if components fail or the server board
does not operate correctly when used outside any of their published operating or non-operating
limits.

The server board has a VRD (Voltage Regulator Down) to support one processor. It is compliant
with the VRD 11 DC-DC Converter Design Guide Line and provides a maximum of 125A.
The board hardware monitors the processor VTTEN (Output enable for VTT) pin before turning
on the VRD. If the VTTEN pin of the processors is not asserted, the Power ON Logic will not
turn on the VRD.
3.1.2
Reset Configuration Logic
The BIOS determines the processor stepping and processor cache size through the CPUID
instruction. The processor information is read at every system power-on.
Note: The processor speed is the processor power-on reset default value. No manual processor
speed setting options exist either in the form of a BIOS setup option or jumpers.

The Intel® Server Board S3000AH is designed around the Intel® 3000 Chipset. The chipset
provides an integrated I/O bridge and memory controller, and a flexible I/O subsystem core (PCI
Express*). The chipset consists of three primary components.
3.2.1
Memory Controller Hub (MCH)
Intel® 3000 Chipset MCH: Memory Control Hub
3.2.1.1
The MCH accepts access requests from the host (processor) bus and directs those accesses to
memory or to one of the PCI Express* or PCI buses. The MCH monitors the host bus,
examining addresses for each request. Accesses may be directed to the following:
ƒ
ƒ
A memory request queue for subsequent forwarding to the memory subsystem
An outbound request queue for subsequent forwarding to one of the PCI Express or PCI
buses
The MCH also accepts inbound requests from the Intel® ICH7R. The MCH is responsible for
generating the appropriate controls to control data transfer to and from memory.
Revision 1.1
17
Functional Architecture
Intel® Server Boards S3000AHLX, S3000AH, and S3000AHV TPS

PCI-X* Hub (PXH)
PXH-V: PCI-X* Hub (S3000AHLX SKU Only) The PXH-V hub is a peripheral chip that performs
PCI/PCI-X* bridging functions between the PCI Express* interface and the PCI/PCI-X bus. The
PXH-V contains two PCI bus interfaces that can be independently configured to operate in PCI
(33 or 66 MHz), PCI-X Mode1 (66,100,133), for either 32 or 64 bits.
3.2.2.1
Segment E 64bit/133MHz PCI-X* Subsystem
One 64-bit PCI-X* bus segment is directed through the PXH-V. This PCI-X segment, segment
E, provides the following:
ƒ
ƒ
One 3.3V 64-bit PCI-X slots and
One 3.3V 64-bit PCI-X riser slot (S3000AHLX SKU only)
On Segment E, PCI-X is capable of speeds up to 133MHz operation and supports full-length
PCI and PCI-X adapters. For slot 6 the Intel® Adaptive Slot, the PCI-X bus can run at maximum
100MHz speed with a PCI-X riser card.

3.2.2.1.1 Device IDs (IDSEL)
Each device under the PCI-X* hub bridge has its IDSEL signal connected to one bit of AD
[31:16], which acts as a chip select on the PCI-X bus segment in configuration cycles. This
determines a unique PCI-X device ID value for use in configuration cycles. The following table
shows the bit to which each IDSEL signal is attached for P64-C devices and a corresponding
device description.

3.2.2.1.2 Segment E Arbitration
PXH-V supports two PCI masters: two PCI-X* slots or one riser slot. All PCI masters must
arbitrate for PCI access using resources supplied by the PXH-V. The host bridge PCI interface
(PXH-V) arbitration lines REQx* and GNTx* are a special case in that they are internal to the
host bridge. The following table defines the arbitration connections.

3.2.3.1
I/O Controller Hub
Intel® ICH7R: I/O Controller Hub 7R
The Intel® ICH7R controller has several components. It provides the interface for a 32-bit/33MHz PCI bus. The Intel® ICH7R can be both a master and a target on that PCI bus. The Intel®
ICH7R includes a USB 2.0 controller and an IDE controller. The Intel® ICH7R is responsible for
much of the power management functions with ACPI control registers built in. The Intel® ICH7R
also provides a number of General Purpose I/O (GPIO) pins and has the Low Pin Count (LPC)
bus to support low speed Legacy I/O.
The MCH and Intel® ICH7R chips provide the pathway between the processor and the I/O
systems. The MCH is responsible for accepting access requests from the host (processor) bus,
and directing all I/O accesses to one of the PCI buses or Legacy I/O locations. If the cycle is
directed to one of the PCIe* segments, the MCH communicates with the PCIe Devices (add-in
card, on board devices) through the PCIe interface. If the cycle is directed to the Intel® ICH7R,
the cycle is output on the MCH’s DMI bus. All I/O for the board, including PCI and PCcompatible I/O, is directed through the MCH and then through the Intel® ICH7R provided PCI
buses.

3.4.2
Interrupt Routing
The board interrupt architecture accommodates both PC-compatible PIC mode and APIC mode
interrupts through use of the integrated I/O APICs in the Intel® ICH7R.
3.4.2.1
Legacy Interrupt Routing
For PC-compatible mode, the Intel® ICH7R provides two 82C59-compatible interrupt controllers.
The two controllers are cascaded with interrupt levels 8-15 entering on level 2 of the primary
interrupt controller (standard PC configuration). A single interrupt signal is presented to the
processor, to which the processor will respond for servicing. The Intel® ICH7R contains
configuration registers that define which interrupt source logically maps to I/O APIC INTx pins.
The Intel® ICH7R handles both PCI and IRQ interrupts. The Intel® ICH7R translates these to the
APIC bus. The numbers in the table below indicate the Intel® ICH7R PCI interrupt input pin to
which the associated device interrupt (INTA, INTB, INTC, INTD, INTE, INTF, INTG, INTH for
PCI bus and PXIRQ0, PXIRQ1, PXIRQ2, PXIRQ3 for PCI-X bus) is connected. The Intel®
ICH7R I/O APIC exists on the I/O APIC bus with the processor.

APIC Interrupt Routing
For APIC mode, the server board interrupt architecture incorporates three Intel® I/O APIC
devices to manage and broadcast interrupts to local APICs in each processor. The Intel® I/O
APICs monitor each interrupt on each PCI device; including PCI slots in addition to the ISA
compatibility interrupts IRQ (0-15).
When an interrupt occurs, a message corresponding to the interrupt is sent across a three-wire
serial interface to the local APICs. The APIC bus minimizes interrupt latency time for
compatibility interrupt sources. The I/O APICs can also supply greater than 16 interrupt levels to
the processor(s). This APIC bus consists of an APIC clock and two bidirectional data lines.

Serialized IRQ Support
The server board supports a serialized interrupt delivery mechanism. Serialized Interrupt
Requests (SERIRQ) consists of a start frame, a minimum of 17 IRQ / data channels, and a stop
frame. Any slave device in the quiet mode may initiate the start frame. While in the continuous
mode, the start frame is initiated by the host controller
3.4.3
PCI Error Handling
The PCI bus defines two error pins, PERR# and SERR#, for reporting PCI parity errors and
system errors, respectively. In the case of PERR#, the PCI bus master has the option to retry
the offending transaction, or to report it using SERR#. All other PCI-related errors are reported
by SERR#. SERR# is routed to NMI if enabled by BIOS.

NIC 1 is an Intel® 82573E gigabit Ethernet controller resourced with an x1 PCI Express*
interface from the Intel® ICH7R (PCI Segment C).
NIC2 is an Intel® 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller is resourced with a 32bit/33MHz
PCI Segment from the Intel® ICH7R (PCI Segment A). (S3000AHLX and S3000AH SKU
only)
Both the Intel® 82573E and Intel® 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controllers are single, compact
components with an integrated gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and physical layer
(PHY) function. The Intel® 82573E and Intel® 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller allow for a
gigabit Ethernet implementation in a very small area that is footprint compatible with current
generation 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet designs. The Intel® 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller
and Intel® 82573E integrate the fourth and fifth generation (respectively) gigabit MAC design
with fully integrated, physical layer circuitry to provide a standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet interface
for 1000BASE-T, 100BASE_TX, and 10BASE-T applications (802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3ab). The
controller is capable of transmitting and receiving data at rates of 1000 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 10
Mbps. In addition to managing MAC and PHY layer functions, 82541PI controller provides a 32bit wide direct Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) 2.3 compliant interface capable of
operating at 33 or 66MHz while 82573E/V provide PCI Express* x1 interface.
Both the Intel® 82573E and Intel® 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controllers can be disabled and
enable by GPIO pins from the Intel® ICH7R, which is controlled through BIOS. Both NIC
controllers support Wake ON LAN function to wake system back from S1 and S4 sleep states.
The Intel® 82573E Gigabit Ethernet Controller supports the Intel® AMT technology.

Functional Architecture
Replacing the Back-Up Battery
The lithium battery on the server board powers the RTC for up to ten years in the absence of
power. When the battery starts to weaken, it loses voltage, and the server settings stored in
CMOS RAM in the RTC (for example, the date and time) may be wrong. Contact your customer
service representative or dealer for a list of approved devices.
WARNING
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent
type recommended by the equipment manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to
manufacturer’s instructions.
ADVARSEL!
Lithiumbatteri - Eksplosionsfare ved fejlagtig håndtering. Udskiftning må kun ske med batteri af
samme fabrikat og type. Levér det brugte batteri tilbage til leverandøren.

BIOS Identification String
The BIOS Identification string is used to uniquely identify the revision of the BIOS being used on
the server. The string is formatted as follows:
BoardFamilyID.OEMID.MajorRev.MinorRev.BuildID.BuildDateTime
Where:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
BoardFamilyID = String name for this board family.
OEMID = Three-character OEM ID. “86B” is used for Intel server boards.
MajorRev = Two decimal digits
MinorRev = Two decimal digits
BuildID = Four decimal digits
BuildDateTime = Build date and time in MMDDYYYYHHMM format:
- MM = Two-digit month
- DD = Two-digit day of month
- YYYY = Four-digit year
- HH = Two-digit hour using 24 hour clock
- MM = Two-digit minute
For example, Intel® Server Board S3000AH BIOS Build 3, generated on Jan 21, 2006 at 11:59
AM has the following BIOS ID string that will be displayed in the POST diagnostic screen:
S3000.86B.01.00.0003.012120061159
The BIOS version in the Setup Utility is displayed as:
S3000.86B.01.00.0003
The BIOS ID is used to identify the BIOS image. It is not used to designate either the board ID
S3000AH or the BIOS phase (Alpha, Beta, etc). The Board ID is available in the SMBIOS type 2
structure in which the phase of the BIOS can be determined by the release notes associated
with the image. The Board ID is also available via setup.

BIOS Setup Utility
The BIOS Setup utility is a text-based utility that allows the user to configure the system and
view current settings and environment information for the platform devices. The Setup utility
controls the platform's built-in devices.
The BIOS Setup interface consists of a number of pages or screens. Each page contains
information or links to other pages. The first page in Setup displays a list of general categories
as links. These links lead to pages containing specific category’s configuration.
The following sections describe the look and behavior for platform Setup.
4.3.1

Localization. The BIOS is only available in English.
BIOS Setup is functional via console redirection over various terminal emulation
standards. This may limit some functionality for compatibility e.g. usage of colors or
some keys or key sequences or support of pointing devices.
Setup Page Layout
The setup page layout is sectioned into functional areas. Each occupies a specific area of the
screen and has dedicated functionality. The following table lists and describes each functional
area.

The <Esc> key provides a mechanism for backing out of any field. This key will
undo the pressing of the Enter key. When the <Esc> key is pressed while editing
any field or selecting features of a menu, the parent menu is re-entered.
When the <Esc> key is pressed in any sub-menu, the parent menu is re-entered.
When the <Esc> key is pressed in any major menu, the exit confirmation window is
displayed and the user is asked whether changes can be discarded. If “No” is
selected and the <Enter> key is pressed, or if the <Esc> key is pressed, the user is
returned to where he/she was before <Esc> was pressed, without affecting any
existing any settings. If “Yes” is selected and the <Enter> key is pressed, setup is
exited and the BIOS returns to the main System Options Menu screen.

to move from hours to minutes in the time item in the main menu.
-
Change Value
The minus key on the keypad is used to change the value of the current item to the
previous value. This key scrolls through the values in the associated pick list
without displaying the full list.
+
Change Value
The plus key on the keypad is used to change the value of the current menu item to
the next value. This key scrolls through the values in the associated pick list without
displaying the full list. On 106-key Japanese keyboards, the plus key has a different
scan code than the plus key on the other keyboard, but will have the same effect.
<F9>
Setup Defaults
Pressing <F9> causes the following to appear:
Load Optimized defaults? (Y/N)
If the <Y> key is pressed, all Setup fields are set to their default values. If the <N>

User is prompted for confirmation.
Loading BIOS Defaults
Different mechanisms exist for resetting the system configuration to the default values. When a
request to reset the system configuration is detected, the BIOS loads the default system
configuration values during the next POST. The request to reset the system to the defaults can
be sent in the following ways:
ƒ
ƒ
4.5
A request to reset the system configuration can be generated using the BIOS System
Configuration Utility (Setup).
A reset system configuration request can be generated by moving the clear system
configuration jumper.
Multiple Boot Blocks
Two boot blocks are available on this server board.
Multiple Boot Blocks fault tolerant realization requires BIOS to: 1) recognize the second boot
block and dispatch modules within it; 2) provide flash update interface (for utility) that has faulttolerant flash update algorithm embedded, by which at any time point, there always exists a set
of boot blocks that could recover the system back if the flash update is failed.
4.6
Recovery Mode
A recovery process can be initiated by setting the recovery jumper (called Force Recovery), or it
can be invoked because of flash damaged.
A BIOS recovery can be accomplished from an ATAPI-CD. An ATAPI-CD image for recovery is
created using the El-Torito format image as per the published release notes.
The recovery media must contain the following image file: FV_MAIN.FV. The system should
also contain a DOS bootable disk (HD, USB drives or CD, etc.) which must include the following
image files:
1. IFLASH32.EXE
2. *.CAP
3. AUTOEXEC.BAT
Revision 1.1
63
Intel® Server Boards S3000AHLX, S3000AH, and S3000AHV TPS
The BIOS starts the recovery process by first loading and booting to the recovery image file
(FV_MAIN.FV) on the root directory of the inserted ATAPI-CD. This process takes place before
any video or console is available. Once the system boots to this recovery image file
(FV_MAIN.FV), the user should select booting from the DOS disk, which contains the above file
list. The process continues by loading and executing the AUTOEXEC.BAT file and the flash
update application (IFLASH32.EXE). IFLASH32.EXE requires the supporting BIOS Capsule
image file (*.CAP).
Once the recovery process is complete, it waits for a user to switch the recovery jumper back to
normal operation and restart the system by doing a power cycle.
The following steps illustrate the recovery process:
1. Insert recovery media with the FV_MAIN.FV on the root directory.
2. Insert the disk with all the required files (IFLASH32.EXE, AUTOEXEC.BAT, *.CAP). The
user could also put all the files in both step 1 and 2 together into one disk.
3. Change the recovery mode jumper (BIOS RECV) from normal operation to recovery
operation. The details of the jumper can be found in the server board EPS.
4. Power on the system.
5. The BIOS POST screen will appear and display the progress. BIOS continues to boot to
DOS from the media.
6. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is invoked and it will initiate the flash update (IFLASH32.EXE)
with new capsule file (*.CAP). A message will be displayed if the flash update succeeds.
If flash update fails, the user will be notified.
7. Once the flash update is completed, put the recovery jumper back to the default position
for normal operation.
8. Perform the power cycle.

Error Logging via SMI Handler
The SMI handler is used to handle and log system level events. The SMI handler pre-processes
all system errors, even those that are normally considered to generate an NMI.
The SMI handler logs the event to NVRAM. For example, the BIOS programs the hardware to
generate SMI on a single-bit memory error and logs the error in the NVRAM in the terms of
SMBIOS Type 15. After the BIOS finishes logging the error it will assert the NMI if needed.
5.1.2.1
PCI Bus Error
The PCI bus defines two error pins, PERR# and SERR#. These are used for reporting PCI
parity errors and system errors, respectively.
In the case of PERR#, the PCI bus master has the option to retry the offending transaction, or to
report it using SERR#. All other PCI-related errors are reported by SERR#. All PCI-to-PCI
bridges are configured so that they generate SERR# on the primary interface whenever there is
SERR# on the secondary side. The format of the data bytes is described in Section 5.1.4
5.1.2.2
PCI Express* Errors
All uncorrectable PCI Express* errors are logged as PCI system errors and promoted to an NMI.
All correctable PCI Express errors are logged as PCI parity errors.
5.1.2.3
Memory Errors
The hardware is programmed to generate an SMI on correctable data errors in the memory
array. The SMI handler records the error to the NVRAM. The uncorrectable errors may have
corrupted the contents of SMRAM. The SMI handler will log the error to the NVRAM if the
SMRAM contents are still valid. The format of the data bytes is described in Section 5.1.4
5.1.3
SMBIOS Type 15
Errors are logged to NVRAM in the terms of SMBIOS Type 15 (System Event Log). Please refer
to the SMBIOS Specification, version 2.4 for more detail information. The format of the records
is also defined in following section.
5.1.4
Logging Format Conventions
BIOS logs an error into the NVRAM area with the following record format, which is also defined
in the SMBIOS Specification, version 2.4.

Error Reporting and Handling
Diagnostic LEDs
During the system boot process, the BIOS executes several platform configuration processes,
each of which is assigned a specific hex POST code number. As each configuration routine is
started, the BIOS will display the POST code on the POST code diagnostic LEDs found on the
back edge of the server board. To assist in troubleshooting a system hang during the POST
process, the diagnostic LEDs can be used to identify the last POST process to be executed.
Each POST code is represented by a combination of colors from the four LEDs. The LEDs are
capable of displaying three colors: green, red, and amber. The POST codes are divided into an
upper nibble and a lower nibble. Each bit in the upper nibble is represented by a red LED and
each bit in the lower nibble is represented by a green LED. If both bits are set in the upper and
lower nibbles then both red and green LEDs are lit, resulting in an amber color. If both bits are
clear, then the LED is off.
In the below example, BIOS sends a value of ACh to the diagnostic LED decoder. The LEDs
are decoded as follows:
ƒ
Red bits = 1010b = Ah
ƒ
Green bits = 1100b = Ch
Since the red bits correspond to the upper nibble and the green bits correspond to the lower
nibble, the two are concatenated to be ACh.

POST Error Messages and Handling
Whenever possible, the BIOS will output the current boot progress codes on the video screen.
Progress codes are 32-bit quantities plus optional data. The 32-bit numbers include class,
subclass, and operation information. The class and subclass fields point to the type of hardware
that is being initialized. The operation field represents the specific initialization activity. Based on
the data bit availability to display progress codes, a progress code can be customized to fit the
data width. The higher the data bit, the higher the granularity of information that can be sent on
the progress port. The progress codes may be reported by the system BIOS or option ROMs.
The Response section in the following table is divided into two types:

Error Reporting and Handling
Pause: The message is displayed in the Error Manager screen, an error may be logged
to the NVRAM, and user input is required to continue. The user can take immediate
corrective action or choose to continue booting.
Halt: The message is displayed in the Error Manager screen, an error is logged to the
NVRAM, and the system cannot boot unless the error is resolved. The user needs to
replace the faulty part and restart the system.

Description
System halted because a fatal error related to the memory
was detected.
POST Error Pause Option
In case of POST error(s) that are listed as "Pause", the BIOS will enter the error manager and
wait for user to press an appropriate key before booting the operating system or entering BIOS
Setup.
The user can override this option by setting "POST Error Pause" to "disabled" in BIOS setup
Main menu page. If "POST Error Pause" option is set to "disabled", the system will boot the
operating system without user-intervention. The default value is set to "enabled".

Power Timing Requirements
These are the timing requirements for the power supply operation. The output voltages must
rise from 10% to within regulation limits (Tvout_rise) within 5 to 70ms, except for 5VSB - it is
allowed to rise from 1.0 to 70ms. The +3.3V, +5V and +12V output voltages should start to rise
approximately at the same time. All outputs must rise monotonically. The +5V output needs
to be greater than the +3.3V output during any point of the voltage rise. The +5V output must
never be greater than the +3.3V output by more than 2.25V. Each output voltage shall reach
regulation within 50ms (Tvout_on) of each other during turn on of the power supply. Each output
voltage shall fall out of regulation within 400msec (Tvout_off) of each other during turn off. Refer
to the table below for the timing requirements for the power supply being turned on and off via
the AC input, with PSON held low and the PSON signal, with the AC input applied.

Hardware Monitoring
Chassis Intrusion
The server board supports a chassis security feature that detects if the chassis cover is
removed. For the chassis intrusion circuit to function, the chassis’ power supply must be
connected to AC power. The security feature uses a mechanical switch on the chassis that
attaches to the chassis intrusion connector. When the chassis cover is removed, the
mechanical switch is in the open position.
