System Memory
The board has four DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:
•
•
•
1.8 V DDR2 800 MHz and DDR2 667 MHz SDRAM DIMMs
Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support
Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction:
Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.
•
16 GB maximum total system memory (with 2 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: 512 MB
Non-ECC DIMMs
Serial Presence Detect
•
•
•
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.

Product Description
1.5.1
Memory Configurations
The Intel 82G43 GMCH supports 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.
Flex mode. This mode provides the most flexible performance characteristics.
The bottommost DRAM memory (the memory that is lowest within the system
memory map) is mapped to dual channel operation; the topmost DRAM memory
(the memory that is nearest to the 16 GB address space limit), if any, is mapped
to single channel operation. Flex mode results in multiple zones of dual and single
channel operation across the whole of DRAM memory. To use flex mode, it is
necessary to populate both channels.

NOTE
Regardless of the memory configuration used (dual channel, single channel, or flex
mode), Channel A must always be populated. This is a requirement of the Intel
Management Engine.

⎯ Supports digital and analog displays up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz refresh
(WUXGA) and 2560 x 1600 at 60 Hz refresh (WQXGA) respectively; also
supports 1920 x 1080 resolution for full High Definition video playback quality
⎯ Dual independent display support (HDMI and DVI-I)
1.6.1.2
Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT 5.0)
DVMT enables enhanced graphics and memory performance through highly efficient
memory utilization. DVMT ensures the most efficient use of available system memory
for maximum 2-D/3-D graphics performance. The amount of system memory
allocated to DVMT varies depending on the amount of total system memory installed
as well as the operating system being used. For Windows Vista*, a minimum of
128 MB can be allocated to DVMT and a maximum of over 2 GB can be allocated to
DVMT with the correct amount of memory installed. DVMT returns system memory
back to the operating system when the additional system memory is no longer
required by the graphics subsystem.
DVMT will always use a minimal fixed portion of system physical memory (as set in the
BIOS Setup program) for compatibility with legacy applications. An example of this
would be when using VGA graphics under DOS. Once loaded, the operating system
and graphics drivers allocate additional system memory to the graphics buffer as
needed for performing graphics functions.
NOTE
The use of DVMT requires operating system driver support.

ATA Support
The board provides five ATA interface connectors:
•
•
One PATA connector that supports two devices
Four SATA connectors that support one device per connector
1.6.3.1
PATA Interface
The discrete PATA controller has one bus-mastering PATA interface that is accessible
through a 44-pin connector. The PATA interface supports the following modes:
•
•
•
•
•
Programmed I/O (PIO): processor controls data transfer.
8237-style DMA: DMA offloads the processor, supporting transfer rates of up to
16 MB/s.
Ultra DMA: DMA protocol on ATA bus supporting host and target throttling and
transfer rates of up to 33 MB/s.
ATA-66: DMA protocol on ATA bus supporting host and target throttling and
transfer rates of up to 66 MB/s. ATA-66 protocol is similar to Ultra DMA and is
device driver compatible.
ATA-100: DMA protocol on ATA bus allows host and target throttling. The
controller’s ATA-100 logic can achieve read transfer rates up to 100 MB/s and write
transfer rates up to 88 MB/s.
NOTE
ATA-66 and ATA-100 are faster timings and require a specialized cable to reduce
reflections, noise, and inductive coupling.
The PATA interface also supports ATAPI devices (such as CD-ROM drives) and ATA
devices using the transfer modes.
The BIOS supports Logical Block Addressing (LBA) and Extended Cylinder Head Sector
(ECHS) translation modes. The drive reports the transfer rate and translation mode to
the BIOS.
For information about
Refer to
The location of the PATA connector
Figure 10, page 46
23
Intel Desktop Board DG43GT Technical Product Specification
1.6.3.2
SATA Interfaces
The ICH10 SATA controller offers four independent SATA ports with a theoretical
maximum transfer rate of 3.0 Gb/s on each port. One device can be installed on each
port for a maximum of four SATA devices. A point-to-point interface is used for host
to device connections, unlike PATA which supports a master/slave configuration and
two devices on each channel.
For compatibility, the underlying SATA functionality is transparent to the operating
system. The SATA controller supports IDE and AHCI (Microsoft Windows Vista only)
configuration and can operate in both legacy and native modes. In legacy mode,
standard ATA 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 and Windows Vista*
operating systems.

Real-Time Clock Subsystem
A coin-cell battery (CR2032) powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. When
the computer is not plugged into a wall socket, the battery has an estimated life of
three years. When the computer is plugged in, the standby current from the power
supply extends the life of the battery. The clock is accurate to ± 13 minutes/year at
25 ºC with 3.3 VSB applied.
NOTE
If the battery and AC power fail, custom defaults, if previously saved, will be loaded
into CMOS RAM at power-on.
When the voltage drops below a certain level, the BIOS Setup program settings stored
in CMOS RAM (for example, the date and time) might not be accurate. Replace the
battery with an equivalent one. Figure 1 on page 11 shows the location of the battery.

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 (S1 and S3 only)
Power Management Event signal (PME#) wake-up support
WAKE# signal wake-up support
Wake from PS/2 devices
Wake from serial port
LAN wake capabilities and Instantly Available PC technology require power from the
+5 V standby line.
NOTE
The use of Wake from USB technologies from an ACPI state requires an operating
system that provides full ACPI support.
1.12.2.1
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.

•
•
•
•
The fans are on when the board is in the S0 state.
The fans are off when the board is off or in the S3, S4, or S5 state.
The processor fan header is wired to a fan tachometer input. The front and rear fan
headers each have independent tachometer input to the hardware monitoring and
fan control device. All fan headers support closed-loop fan control that can adjust
the fan speed according to thermal conditions.
All fan headers have a +12 V DC connection.

1.12.2.3
LAN Wake Capabilities
CAUTION
For LAN wake capabilities, the +5 V standby line from 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 PCI bus network adapter 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. Depending on the LAN
implementation, the board supports LAN wake capabilities with ACPI in the following
ways:
•
•
The PCI Express WAKE# signal
The PCI bus PME# signal for PCI 2.3 compliant LAN designs
⎯ By Ping
•
⎯ Magic Packet
The onboard LAN subsystem
37
Intel Desktop Board DG43GT Technical Product Specification
1.12.2.4
Instantly Available PC Technology
CAUTION
For Instantly Available PC technology, the +5 V standby line from 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 LED is amber if dual colored, or off if single
colored.) When signaled by a wake-up device or event, the system quickly returns to
its last known wake state. Table 10 on page 35 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 2.3 compliant add-in cards and drivers.
1.12.2.5
Wake from USB
USB bus activity wakes the computer from ACPI S1 or S3 state.
NOTE
Wake from USB requires the use of a USB peripheral that supports Wake from USB
and support in the operating system.
1.12.2.6
PME# Signal Wake-up Support
When the PME# signal on the PCI bus is asserted, the computer wakes from an ACPI

Wake from PS/2 Devices
PS/2 device activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S1, S3, S4, or S5 state. When
the computer is in an S4 state, any key can be used to wake the computer provided a
supported operating system is installed. When the computer is in the S5 state, the
only PS/2 activity that will wake the computer is the either the alt-PrtScrn key
combination or the “Power” key that is available on some keyboards. The BIOS can be
used to toggle between either of the key combinations.

Addressable Memory
The board utilizes 16 GB of addressable system memory. Typically the address space
that is allocated for PCI Conventional bus add-in cards, PCI Express configuration
space, BIOS (SPI Flash), and chipset overhead resides above the top of DRAM (total
system memory). On a system that has 16 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 (32 Mb)
Local APIC (19 MB)
Direct Media Interface (40 MB)
Front side bus interrupts (17 MB)
PCI Express configuration space (256 MB)
GMCH base address registers, internal graphics ranges, PCI Express ports (up to
512 MB)
Memory-mapped I/O that is dynamically allocated for PCI Conventional and PCI
Express add-in cards
Base graphics memory support (1 MB or 8 MB)
Intel MEI single channel (8 MB) or dual channel (16 MB)
41
Intel Desktop Board DG43GT Technical Product Specification
The amount of installed memory that can be used will vary based on add-in cards,

Connectors and Headers
CAUTION
Only the following connectors have overcurrent protection: Back panel and front panel
USB, PS/2, and IEEE 1394a.
The other internal connectors/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/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 or IEEE 1394 header single wire connectors
may eventually overload the overcurrent protection and cause damage to the board.
NOTE
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.
This section describes the board’s connectors and headers. The connectors and
headers can be divided into these groups:

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 supporting simultaneous
transfer speeds up to 8 GB/s of peak bandwidth per direction and up to 16 GB/s
concurrent bandwidth.
PCI Express 1.1 x1: two PCI Express 1.1 x1 connectors. The x1 interface
supports simultaneous transfer speeds up to 250 MB/s of peak bandwidth per
direction and up to 2 GB/s concurrent bandwidth.
PCI Conventional (rev 2.3 compliant) bus: one PCI Conventional bus add-in card
connector.
Note the following considerations for the PCI Conventional bus connector:
•
•
The PCI Conventional bus connector is bus master capable.
SMBus signals are routed to the PCI Conventional bus connector. This enables PCI
Conventional 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.
50
Technical Reference
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, attach that cable on the
rightmost pins of the main power connector, leaving pins 11, 12, 23, and
24 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.

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 65 W processor (see Section 1.4
on page 15 for a list of supported processors), 1 GB DDR2 RAM, one hard disk drive,
one optical drive, and all board peripherals enabled, the minimum recommended
power supply is 135W. Table 29 lists the recommended power supply current values.

Add-in Board Considerations
The board is designed to provide 2 A (average) of +5 V current for each add-in board.
The total +5 V current draw for add-in boards for a fully loaded board (all three
expansion slots filled) must not exceed 8 A.
2.6
Thermal Considerations
CAUTION
A chassis with a maximum internal ambient temperature of 38 oC at the processor fan
inlet is a requirement. Use a processor heat sink that provides omni-directional
airflow to maintain required airflow across the processor voltage regulator area.
CAUTION
Failure to ensure appropriate airflow may result in reduced performance of both the
processor and/or voltage regulator or, in some instances, damage to the board. 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
Ensure that the ambient temperature does 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 2.8.
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. The processor
voltage regulator area (shown in Figure 17) can reach a temperature of up to 85 oC in
an open chassis.

Overview of BIOS Features
3.1
Introduction
The board uses an Intel BIOS that is stored in the Serial Peripheral Interface Flash
Memory (SPI Flash) and can be updated using a disk-based program. The SPI Flash
contains the BIOS Setup program, POST, the PCI auto-configuration utility, LAN
EEPROM information, and Plug and Play support.
The BIOS displays a message during POST identifying the type of BIOS and a revision
code. The initial production BIOSs are identified as GTG4310H.86A.
When the BIOS Setup configuration jumper is set to configure mode and the computer
is powered-up, the BIOS compares the CPU version and the microcode version in the
BIOS and reports if the two match.
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.

3.3.1
Resource Configuration
PCI* Autoconfiguration
The BIOS can automatically configure PCI devices. PCI devices may be onboard or
add-in cards. Autoconfiguration lets a user insert or remove PCI cards without having
to configure the system. When a user turns on the system after adding a PCI card,
the BIOS automatically configures interrupts, the I/O space, and other system
resources. Any interrupts set to Available in Setup are considered to be available for
use by the add-in card.

Overview of BIOS Features
3.4
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.

Intel Desktop Board DG43GT Technical Product Specification
3.5
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.
7. Additional USB legacy feature options can be access by using Intel® Integrator
Toolkit.
To install an operating system that supports USB, verify that Legacy USB support in
the BIOS Setup program is set to Enabled and follow the operating system’s
installation instructions.

Overview of BIOS Features
3.6
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 hard drive), or a CD-ROM, or from
the file location on the Web.
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 hard drive), or a CD-ROM.
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.

3.6.1
Language Support
The BIOS Setup program and help messages are supported in US English. Check the
Intel web site for details.
3.6.2
Custom Splash Screen
During POST, an Intel® splash screen is displayed by default. This splash screen can
be augmented with a custom splash screen. The Intel Integrator’s Toolkit or Intel®
Integrator Assistant that are available from Intel can be used to create a custom
splash screen.
NOTE
If you add a custom splash screen, it will share space with the Intel branded logo.

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.

Boot Options
In the BIOS Setup program, the user can choose to boot from a diskette drive, hard
drive, USB drive, USB flash drive, CD-ROM, or the network. The default setting is for
the diskette drive to be the first boot device, the hard drive second, and the ATAPI
CD-ROM third. If enabled, the last default boot device is the network.
3.8.1
CD-ROM Boot
Booting from CD-ROM is supported in compliance to the El Torito bootable CD-ROM
format specification. Under the Boot menu in the BIOS Setup program, ATAPI CDROM is listed as a boot device. Boot devices are defined in priority order. Accordingly,
if there is not a bootable CD in the CD-ROM drive, the system will attempt to boot
from the next defined drive.
3.8.2
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.
70
Overview of BIOS Features
3.8.3
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
3.8.4
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 (as set in the BIOS setup program’s
Boot Device Priority Submenu). Table 36 lists the boot device menu options.

Adjusting Boot Speed
These factors affect system boot speed:
•
•
3.9.1
Selecting and configuring peripherals properly
Optimized BIOS boot parameters
Peripheral Selection and Configuration
The following techniques help improve system boot speed:
•
•
•
•
Choose a hard drive with parameters such as “power-up to data ready” in less than
eight seconds, that minimize hard drive startup delays.
Select a CD-ROM drive with a fast initialization rate. This rate can influence POST
execution time.
Eliminate unnecessary add-in adapter features, such as logo displays, screen
repaints, or mode changes in POST. These features may add time to the boot
process.
Try different monitors. Some monitors initialize and communicate with the BIOS
more quickly, which enables the system to boot more quickly.
71
Intel Desktop Board DG43GT Technical Product Specification
3.9.2
BIOS Boot Optimizations
Use of the following BIOS Setup program settings reduces the POST execution time.
•
•
In the Boot Menu, set the hard disk drive as the first boot device. As a result, the
POST does not first seek a diskette drive, which saves about one second from the
POST execution time.
In the Peripheral Configuration submenu, disable the LAN device if it will not be
used. This can reduce up to four seconds of option ROM boot time.
NOTE
It is possible to optimize the boot process to the point where the system boots so
quickly that the Intel logo screen (or a custom logo splash screen) will not be seen.
Monitors and hard disk drives with minimum initialization times can also contribute to
a boot time that might be so fast that necessary logo screens and POST messages
cannot be seen.
This boot time may be so fast that some drives might be not be initialized at all. If
this condition should occur, it is possible to introduce a programmable delay ranging
from three to 30 seconds (using the Hard Disk Pre-Delay feature of the Advanced
Menu in the Drive Configuration Submenu of the BIOS Setup program).
72
Overview of BIOS Features
3.10 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 37 shows the effects of setting the supervisor password and user password.
This table is for reference only and is not displayed on the screen.

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 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 PCI bus connector 1.
The following tables provide information about the POST codes generated by the
BIOS:
•

Lead Free Desktop Board
This Desktop Board is a European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (EU
RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC) compliant product. EU RoHS restricts the use of six
materials. One of the six restricted materials is lead.
This Desktop Board is lead free although certain discrete components used on the
board contain a small amount of lead which is necessary for component performance
and/or reliability. This Desktop Board is referred to as “Lead-free second level
interconnect.” The board substrate and the solder connections from the board to the
components (second-level connections) are all lead free.
China bans the same substances and has the same limits as EU RoHS; however it
requires different product marking and controlled substance information. The required
mark shows the Environmental Friendly Usage Period (EFUP). The EFUP is defined as
the number of years for which controlled listed substances will not leak or chemically
deteriorate while in the product.
Table 45 shows the various forms of the “Lead-Free 2nd Level Interconnect” mark as it
appears on the board and accompanying collateral.
