4.1 An ti-s ta tic P re c a u tio n s
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the
IMB-C2160 may result in permanent damage to the IMB-C2160 and
severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the IMB-C2160. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is therefore
critical that whenever the IMB-C2160 or any other electrical component is handled, the
following anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.

Wear an anti-static wristband: Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging the board.

Self-grounding: Before handling the board touch any grounded conducting
material. During the time the board is handled, frequently touch any
conducting materials that are connected to the ground.

Use an anti-static pad: When configuring the IMB-C2160, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
IMB-C2160.

Only handle the edges of the PCB: When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.
4.2 In s ta lla tio n Co n s id e ra tio n s

The following installation notices and installation considerations should
be read and understood before installation. All installation notices must
be strictly adhered to. Failing to adhere to these precautions may lead
to severe damage and injury to the person performing the installation.
P a g e 49
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
WARNING:
The installation instructions described in this manual should be
carefully followed in order to prevent damage to the IMB-C2160,
IMB-C2160 components and injury to the user.
Before and during the installation please DO the following:

Read the user manual:
o
The user manual provides a complete description of the IMB-C2160
installation instructions and configuration options.

Wear an electrostatic discharge cuff (ESD):
o
Electronic components are easily damaged by ESD. Wearing an ESD cuff
removes ESD from the body and helps prevent ESD damage.

Place the IMB-C2160 on an antistatic pad:
o
When installing or configuring the motherboard, place it on an antistatic
pad. This helps to prevent potential ESD damage.

Turn all power to the IMB-C2160 off:
o
When working with the IMB-C2160, make sure that it is disconnected
from all power supplies and that no electricity is being fed into the system.
Before and during the installation of the IMB-C2160 DO NOT:

Remove any of the stickers on the PCB board. These stickers are required for
warranty validation.

Use the product before verifying all the cables and power connectors are
properly connected.

Allow screws to come in contact with the PCB circuit, connector pins, or its
components.

4.3 Ba s ic In s ta lla tio n
WARNING:
A CPU should never be turned on without the specified cooling kit
being installed. If the cooling kit (heat sink and fan) is not properly
installed and the system turned on, permanent damage to the CPU,
IMB-C2160 and other electronic components attached to the system
may be incurred. Running a CPU without a cooling kit may also result
in injury to the user.
The CPU, CPU cooling kit and DIMM are the most critical components of the IMB-C2160.
If one of these component is not installed the IMB-C2160 cannot run.
4.3.1 S o c ke t LGA1155 CP U In s ta lla tio n
WARNING:
CPUs are expensive and sensitive components. When installing the
CPU please be careful not to damage it in anyway. Make sure the CPU
is installed properly and ensure the correct cooling kit is properly
installed.
DO NOT touch the pins at the bottom of the CPU. When handling the
CPU, only hold it on the sides.
To install the CPU, follow the steps below.
S te p 1:
Disengage the load lever by pressing the lever down and slightly outwards to
clear the retention tab. Fully open the lever. See Figure 4-1.
P a g e 51
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
Figure 4-1: Disengage the CPU Socket Load Lever
S te p 2:
Open the socket and remove the protective cover. The black protective
cover can be removed by pulling up on the tab labeled “Remove”. See
Figure 4-2.
Figure 4-2: Remove Protective Cover
S te p 3:
Inspect the CPU socket. Make sure there are no bent pins and make sure the
socket contacts are free of foreign material. If any debris is found, remove it with
compressed air.
S te p 4:
Orientate the CPU properly. The contact array should be facing the CPU
socket.
P a g e 52
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
S te p 5:
Correctly position the CPU. Match the Pin 1 mark with the CPU edge on the
CPU socket.
S te p 6:
Align the CPU pins. Locate pin 1 and the two orientation notches on the CPU.
Carefully match the two orientation notches on the CPU with the socket
alignment keys.
S te p 7:
Insert the CPU. Gently insert the CPU into the socket. If the CPU pins are
properly aligned, the CPU should slide into the CPU socket smoothly. See
Figure 4-3.
Figure 4-3: Insert the Socket LGA1155 CPU
S te p 8:
Close the CPU socket. Close the load plate and pull the load back a little to
have the load plate be able to secure to the knob. Engage the load lever by
pushing it back to its original position. See Figure 4-4. There will be some

The IEI one key recovery is an easy-to-use front end for the Norton Ghost system backup
and recovery tool. This tool provides quick and easy shortcuts for creating a backup and
reverting to that backup or reverting to the factory default settings.
NOTE:
The latest One Key Recovery software provides an auto recovery
function that allows a system running Microsoft Windows OS to
automatically restore from the factory default image after encountering
a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or a hang for around 10 minutes.
Please refer to Section B.3 for the detailed setup procedure.
The IEI One Key Recovery tool menu is shown below.
Figure B-1: IEI One Key Recovery Tool Menu
Prior to using the IEI One Key Recovery tool (as shown in Figure B-1) to backup or
restore Windows system, five setup procedures are required.
1. Hardware and BIOS setup (see Section B.2.1)
2. Create partitions (see Section B.2.2)
3. Install operating system, drivers and system applications (see Section B.2.3)
4. Build the recovery partition (see Section B.2.4)
5. Create factory default image (see Section B.2.5)
P a g e 140
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
After completing the five initial setup procedures as described above, users can access
the recovery tool by pressing <F3> while booting up the system. The detailed information
of each function is described in Section B.5.
NOTE:
The initial setup procedures for Linux system are described in
Section B.3.
B.1.1 S ys te m Re q u ire m e n t
NOTE:
The recovery CD can only be used with IEI products. The software will
fail to run and a warning message will appear when used on non-IEI
hardware.
To create the system backup, the main storage device must be split into two partitions
(three partitions for Linux). The first partition will be for the operating system, while the
second partition will be invisible to the operating system and contain the backup made by
the one key recovery software.
The partition created for recovery images must be big enough to contain both the factory
default image and the user backup image. The size must be calculated before creating the
P a g e 141
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
partitions. Please take the following table as a reference when calculating the size of the
partition.

The detailed descriptions are described in the following sections. In this document, two
types of Linux OS are used as examples to explain the configuration process – CentOS
5.5 (Kernel 2.6.18) and Debian 5.0.7 (Kernel 2.6.26).
B.6.1 Co n fig u re DHCP S e rve r S e ttin g s
S te p 1:
Install the DHCP
#yum install dhcp (CentOS, commands marked in red)
#apt-get install dhcp3-server (Debian, commands marked in blue)
S te p 2:
Confirm the operating system default settings: dhcpd.conf.
CentOS
Use the following command to show the DHCP server sample location:
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
The DHCP server sample location is shown as below:
Use the following command to copy the DHCP server sample to etc/dhcpd.conf:
#cp /usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/dhcpd.conf.sample /etc/dhcpd.conf
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
Debian
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
P a g e 170
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
Edit “/etc/dhcpd.conf” for your environment. For example, add
next-server PXE server IP address;
filename “pxelinux.0”;
B.6.2 Co n fig u re TFTP S e ttin g s
S te p 1:
Install the tftp, httpd and syslinux.
#yum install tftp-server httpd syslinux (CentOS)
#apt-get install tftpd-hpa xinetd syslinux (Debian)
S te p 2:
Enable the TFTP server by editing the “/etc/xinetd.d/tftp” file and make it use the
remap file. The “-vvv” is optional but it could definitely help on getting more
information while running the remap file. For example:
CentOS
#vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
Modify:
disable = no
server_args = -s /tftpboot –m /tftpboot/tftpd.remap -vvv
P a g e 171
IMB-C2160 Mic ro -ATX Mo th e rb o a rd
Debian
Replace the TFTP settings from “inetd” to “xinetd” and annotate the “inetd” by
adding “#”.
#vi /etc/inetd.conf
Modify: #tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin....... (as shown below)
#vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
B.6.3 Co n fig u re On e Ke y Re c o ve ry S e rve r S e ttin g s

NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. Contact IEI support
or visit the IEI website for specific drivers for other operating systems.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMIs or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer.
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH S u b -fu n c tio n :
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table D-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. When the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.
