Introduction
System Overview
This board is designed with Intel® 845 chipset. The Intel® 845 chipset includes
MCH(FW82845), ICH2(FW82801BA) and FWH three chips. The Intel® 845
chipset is the generation desktop chipset designed for Intel’s FC-PGA2 socket
478 package architecture and support the 4X capability of the AGP 2.0 Interface
Specification. A new chipset component interconnect, the hub interface, is
designed into the Intel® 845 chipset to provide more efficient communication
between chipset components.
Support of AGP 4X, 266MHz DDR SDRAM and the hub interface provides a
balanced system architecture for the Pentium® 4 in the Socket 478 architecture
processor minimizing bottlenecks and increasing system performance. By
increasing memory bandwidth to 2.128GB/s through the use of AGP 4X, the
Intel® 845 chipset will deliver the data throughput necessary to take advantage of
the high performance provided by the powerful Pentium® 4 in the Socket 478
architecture processor.
The Intel® 845 chipset architecture removes the requirement for the ISA expansion bus that was traditionally integrated into the I/O subsystem of Intel chipsets.
This removes many of the conflicts experienced when installing hardware and
drivers into legacy ISA systems. The elimination of ISA will provide true plug-and
play for the Intel® 845 platform.
Intel® 845 chipset contains three core components: the Memory Controller Hub
(MCH), the I/O Controller Hub (ICH) and the Firmware Hub (FWH). The MCH
integrates the data transfer rate of 400/533MHz, Pentium® 4 processor bus
controller, AGP 2.0 controller, 266MHz DDR SDRAM controller and a highspeed hub interface for communication with the ICH2. The ICH2 integrates an
UltraATA/66/100 controller, USB host controller, LPC interface controller, FWH
interface controller, PCI interface controller, and a hub interface for communication with the MCH. The Intel® 845 chipset will provide the data buffering and
interface arbitration required to ensure that system interfaces operate efficiently
and provide the system bandwidth necessary to obtain peak performance the
Pentium® 4 in the Socket 478 architecture.

Introduction
Chipset Components
The Intel® 845 chipset consists of the Memory Controller Hub (MCH), the I/O
Controller Hub (ICH2) and the Firmware Hub (FWH).
Š Memory Controller Hub (MCH)
The MCH provides the interconnect between the DDR SDRAM and the system
logic. It integrates:
- Support for single processor with a data transfer rate of 400/533MHz.
- 200/266MHz DDR SDRAM interface supporting 2GB of DDR SDRAM.
- 2X, 4X, 1.5V AGP interface (Only support 1.5V on AGP interface).
- Downstream hub link for access to the ICH2.
Š I/O Controller Hub (ICH2)
The I/O controller Hub provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of
the system. Additionally, it integrates may I/O functions. The ICH integrates:
- Upstream hub link for access to the MCH
- 2 Channel Ultra ATA/33/66/100 Bus Master IDE controller
- USB controller
- SMBus controller
- FWH interface

Introduction
Intel Pentium 4 processors
Formally known as the Willamette, the PentiumTM 4 is the next generation IA-32
processor from Intel. This next generation design is based upon a new microarchitecture that brings higher clock speeds and performance than previous
processors could deliver. Among other advanced features the Pentium 4 offers
Streaming SIMD extensions 2, Advanced Dynamic Execution, Hyper Pipelined
Technology, and a data transfer rate of 400/533MHz system bus.
Streaming SIMD Extensions 2
Building upon the foundations of core features of their previous line of processors the Pentium III, this new version introduces Streaming SIMD Extensions 2
technology commonly referred to as SSE2. But what does this mean? SIMD stands
for Single Instruction Multiple Data. Usually, processors process one data
element in one instruction, called Single Instruction Single Data, or SISD. In
contrast, with Single Instruction Single Data (SISD), SIMD has the ability to
process more than one piece of data element during one instruction.
This technology is useful for 3D graphics applications that handle considerable
amounts of floating-point numbers. With SIMD applications such as 3D graphics
will be able to processor more data per instruction when equates to better
performance. This technology adds 144 new instructions to the CPU core that can
be used in a wide variety of applications. Software programmers can for example,
take advantage of these new instructions and write more optimized code that take
advantage of newer SIMD double-precision floating-point, integer, and cache
ability instructions. In theory this will enable better next generation services such
as Interactive Digital TV to be produced.
Advanced Dynamic Execution
Advanced Dynamic Execution describes the improved implementation and
abilities over the older P6 processor line’s out-of-order decoupled super scalar
execution. Dynamic execution allows instructions to the processor to be executed
without the need to do so in order. The ability to do this can add a significant
performance increase versus ordered execution.
Hyper Pipelined Technology & 400/533MHz System Bus
Hyper Pipelined Technology doubles the pipeline depth the Pentium 4 delivers to
20 stages. This significantly increases the performance and frequency capabilities.
Pentium 4 also introduces a 400/533MHz system bus as opposed to the 100 and
Page 1-4
Introduction
133MHz bus seen in previous Pentium III processors. This allows 3.2Gbytes per
second of throughput while the Pentium III had a limited 1.06Gbyte/s throughput.
Willamette will reportedly be introduced in the 0.18-micron using aluminum.
For more information about all the cool new features the Pentium 4 delivers
check out the Intel website at http://www.intel.com
Accelerated Graphics Port
(AGP or A.G.P.)
Typically, 3D graphics rendering requires a tremendous amount of memory, and
demands ever increasing throughput speed as well. As 3D products for the
personal computer become more and more popular, these demands will only
increase. This will cause a rise in costs for both end users and manufacturers.
Lowering these costs as well as improving performance is the primary motivation
behind AGP. By providing a massive increase in the bandwidth available between
the video card and the processor, it will assist in relieving some of these pressures
for quite sometime.
The board provides the AGP 2.0 interface. The AGP Interface Specification
revision 2.0 enhances the functionality of the original AGP Interface Specification (revision 1.0) by allowing 4X data transfers (4 data samples per clock) and
1.5 volt (power supply) operation. The AGP 2.0 interface, along with SDRAM
memory technology, allows graphics controllers to access main memory at over
1GB/s. In order to match the 2X and 4X AGP Card. The board used the Universal
AGP connector. (1.5 volt AGP Card supports only).
Ultra ATA/66/100
The ICH2 provides two channel Ultra ATA/66/100 Bus Master IDE controllers,
that support Ultra ATA/66/100 protocols, perfect for such demanding applications
as real-time video, multimedia, and high performance operating system. A new
IDE cable is required for Ultra ATA/66/100. This cable is an 80 conductor cable;
however the connectors are, of course, backwards compatible with ATA/33.

Introduction
Mainboard Form-Factor
The board is designed with ATX form factor - the latest industry standard of
chassis. The ATX form factor is essentially a Baby-AT baseboard rotated 90
degrees within the chassis enclosure and a new mounting configuration for the
power supply. With these changes the processor is relocated away from the
expansion slots, allowing them all to hold full length add-in cards. ATX defines
a double height aperture to the rear of the chassis which can be used to host a
wide range of onboard I/O. Only the size and position of this aperture is
defined, allowing PC manufacturers to add new I/O features (e.g.; TV input, TV
output, joystick, modem, LAN, audio, etc.) to systems. This will help systems
integrators differentiate their products in the marketplace, and better meet your
needs.
•
•
•
By integrating more I/O down onto the board and better positioning the
hard drive and floppy connectors material cost of cables and add-in cards is
reduced.
By reducing the number of cables and components in the system, manufacturing time and inventory holding costs are reduced and reliability will
increase.
By using an optimized power supply, it's possible to reduce cooling costs
and lower acoustical noise. An ATX or ATX12V power supply, which has a
side-mounted fan, allows direct cooling of the processor and add-in cards
making a secondary fan or active heatsink unnecessary in most system
applications.

Power-On/Off (Remote)
The board has a single 20-pin and 4-pin connector for ATX or ATX12V power supplies.
For ATX or ATX12V power supplies that support the Remote On/Off feature, this
should be connected to the systems front panel for system Power On/Off button.
The systems power On/Off button should be a momentary button that is normally open.
The board has been designed with “Soft Off" functions. You can turn Off the system
from one of two sources: The first is the front panel Power On/Off button, and the
other is the "Soft Off" function (coming from the BOARD’s onboard circuit controller) that can be controlled by the operating system such as Windows® 95/98 and
Windows® 2000 to Shutdown the system.
Note: For maintaining the DDR SDRAM power during STR (ACPI S3) function, it is
strongly recommend to use ATX or ATX12V power supplies that have a +5VSB
current of (>=) 1A (1000mA). Please check the 5VSB’s specification that has
been printed on the ATX or ATX12V power supply’s outer case.
Note: The board requires a minimum of 250 Watt ATX or ATX 12V power supply to
operate. Your system configuration (amount of memory, add-in cards, peripherals,
etc.) may exceed the minimum power requirement but to ensure that adequate
power is provided, use a 300 Watt (or greater) ATX or ATX 12V power supply.

Notes:
1. Intel ATX version 2.0 specification recommended you use the power supply
with >=1.0A in 5.0VSB. With our mainboard, the 5.0VSB standby power only
has to be > = 0.1A (100mA) then you can enjoy this unique benefit. However,
an ATX power supply which < 0.1A (100mA) is still usable to your system by
placed JKBPO at the position 2-3 to disable this feature.
2. We recommend you to use the power supply with 1.0A in 5.0VSB. Because it
supports PCI 2.1 specification for remote power-on and wake-up function.

4-6 PnP/PCI Configuration Setup
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. PCI, or Personal Computer
Interconnect, is a system which allows I/O devices to operate at speeds nearing the
speed the CPU itself uses when communicating with its own special components.
This section covers some very technical items and it is strongly recommended that
only experienced users should make any changes to the default settings.
Reset Configuration Data
Normally, you leave this field Disabled. Select Enabled to reset Extended System
Configuration Data (ESCD) when you exit Setup if you have installed a new add-on
and the system reconfiguration has caused such a serious conflict that the operating
system can not boot.
The choice: Enabled, Disabled .
Resource controlled by
The Award Plug and Play BIOS has the capacity to automatically configure all of
the boot and Plug and Play compatible devices. However, this capability means
absolutely nothing unless you are using a Plug and Play operating system such as
Windows95. If you set this field to “manual” choose specific resources by going
Page 4-25
BIOS
into each of the sub menu that follows this field.
The choice: Auto(ESCD), Manual.
PCI/VGA Palette Snoop
Leave this field at Disabled.
The Choice: Enabled, Disabled.
PCI Latency Timer (CLK)
The latency timer defines the minimum amount of time, in PCI clock cycles, that the
bus master can retain the ownership of the bus.
The Choice: 0 ~ 255.
AGP SLOT, AC97/MC97, PCI SLOT1, PCI SLOT2, PCI SLOT3, Onboard
LAN INT Assignment
These settings allows the user to specify what IRQ will be assigned to PCI devices in
the chosen slot. The default is Auto.
The Choice: Auto, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 & 15.
Interrupt request are shared as shown the table below:
AGP Slot

If using PCI cards on shared slots, make sure that the drivers
support “Shared IRQ” or that the cards don’t need IRQ
assignments. Conflicts will arise between the two PCI groups
that will make the system unstable or cards inoperable.

4-10 Supervisor/User Password Setting
You can set either supervisor or user password, or both of then. The differences
between are:
supervisor password : can enter and change the options of the setup menus.
user password
: just can only enter but do not have the right to change the
options of the setup menus. When you select this function, the following message
will appear at the center of the screen to assist you in creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD:
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The password typed now will clear any previously entered password from CMOS memory.
You will be asked to confirm the password. Type the password again and press
<Enter>. You may also press <Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the
password. A message will confirm the password will be disabled. Once the password is disabled, the system will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED.
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time you
try to enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part of
your system configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request a
password every time your system is rebooted. This would prevent unauthorized use
of your computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup Menu
and its Security option. If the Security option is set to “System”, the password will
be required both at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”, prompting only
occurs when trying to enter Setup.

How to Reinstall Windows in 2 Minutes
This chapter teaches you how to set your computer properly and, if
necessary, reinstall Windows in 2 minutes. Ghost can use different
methods to complete this task. The following two sections explain the
creation of the emergency Recover Floppy and Recover CD:
Emergency Recover Floppy
Divide a hard disk into two partitions. The first partition is for storing the
operating system and application programs. The second partition is for
backing up the operating system and data. The size of the partition can be
set according to the backup requirements. For example, the Windows
operating system needs 200MB of hard disk space, while the complete
Office installation requires 360MB. The remaining space can be used to
store other data.
After installing Windows, use Ghost to create a backup of the source system
and store the file (Image file) in drive D. The file is named as Original.gho.
Then, create a recover floppy disk containing:
Š Bootable files (Command.com, Io.sys, and MSDOS.SYS )
ŠConfig.sys (configuration setup file)
ŠAutoexec.bat (auto-execution batch file)
ŠGhost.exe (Ghost execution file)
There are two ways to set the content of the recover floppy for restoration:
(1) To load Windows automatically after booting, set the Autoexec.bat
command as:
Ghost.exe clone, mode=pload, src=d:\original.gho:2,dst=1:1 -fx -sure -rb
Description: Runs the restore function automatically using the Image
File. After execution, it exits Ghost and boots the system
automatically.
Refer to the [Introducing Ghosts Functions].
B-10
Appendix
(2) After booting, the screen displays the Menu. Select Backup or Restore:
Since the user may install other applications in the future, he/she may
design Autoexec.bat as a Menu to back up or restore the userdefined Image file as follows:
)
Backup
Back up Windows and application programs as a file (Recent.
gho). Command is:
Ghost –clone,mode=pdump,src=1:1,dst=d:\Recent.gho -fx sure -rb
)
Restore
Restore types include [General Windows] and [Windows and
Application Programs]. If you select [General Windows],
the system is restored to the general Windows operation
condition. The command is:
Ghost.exe -clone,mode=pload,src=d:\Original.gho,dst=1:1 -fx
-sure -rb
If you select [Windows and Application Programs], the latest
backup file (Recent.gho) is restored, skipping the installation
and setup of application programs.
For description of relevant parameters, refer to [Introducing Ghosts
Functions].
For more information about menu design, refer to Config.sys and
Autoexec.bat under /Menu in the CD. You can also create a backup CD
containing Ghost.exe and these two files.
B-11
Appendix
Recover CD
In recent years, well-known computer manufacturers (such as IBM, Acer,
Compaq, etc.) bundle Recover CDs with their computers to reduce the
cost resulting from servicing, while at the same time increasing their market
competitiveness.
The following is a simple guide to how to create a recover CD:
1. For extremely easy creation of the recover floppy disk, use the copy
program for example “Easy CD Creator “ (Note 2). First, create a
recover floppy disk containing:
Bootable files (Command.com and Io.sys and MSDOS.SYS)
Config.sys (Configuration setup file)
Autoexec.bat (Auto-execution batch file)
Mscdex.exe (CD-Rom execution file)
Ghost.exe (Ghost execution file)
Oakcdrom.sys (ATAPI CD-ROM compatible driver)
The content of Config.sys is:
DEVICE=Oakcdrom.sys /d:idecd001
The content of Autoexec.bat includes:
MSCDEX.EXE /D:IDECD001 /L:Z
Ghost.exe clone,mode=load,src=z:\original.gho,dst=1 -sure -rb
2. Write the backup image file (original.gho) of the entire hard disk or
partition into the recover CD. Use the Recover CD to boot up the
system and restore the backup files automatically.
For description of relevant parameters, refer to [Introducing Ghosts
Functions].
Note: For more details regarding the creation program and method for
creating the recover CD, please refer to the legal software and
relevant operation manual.
B-12
Appendix
Ghost Command Line Switches Reference
Ghost may be run in interactive or in batch mode. Batch mode is useful for automating installations for backups using Ghost. Most of the Ghost switches are used to
assist with batch mode operation. To list switches from Ghost, type ghost.exe -h.
-clone
The full syntax for this switch is:
clone,MODE={copy|load|dump|pcopy|pload|pdump},SRC=
{drive|file|drive:partition|,DST={drive|file|drive:partition},SZE{F|L|n=
{nnnnM|nnP|F|V}}
Clone using arguments. This is the most useful of the batch switches
and has a series of arguments that define:
a) MODE
This defines the type of clone command to be used:
COPY
disk to disk copy
LOAD
file to disk load
DUMP
disk to file dump
PCOPY
partition to partition copy
PLOAD
file to partition load
PDUMP
partition to file dump
b) SRC
Mode
This defines the source location for the operation:
Meaning:
COPY/
DUMP
Source drive (e.g, 1 for drive one)
LOAD
Disk image filename or device (e.g, g:\Images\system2.img)
PCOPY/
PDUMP
Source partition e.g, 1:2 indicates the second partition
on drive one.
PLOAD
Partition image filename or device and partition
number. Example: g:\images\disk1.img:2 indicates the
second partition in the Image file.
B-13
Appendix
c) DST
Mode
COPY/
LOAD
DUMP
PCOPY/
PLOAD
PDUMP
d) SZEy
This defines the destination location for the operation:
Meaning
Destination drive (e.g, 2 for drive two)
Disk image filename or device,(e.g, g:\images\system2.img)
Destination partition,(e.g, 2:2 indicates the second
partition on drive two).
Partition image filename (e.g, g:\images\part1.img).
Used to set the size of the destination partitions for
either a disk load or disk copy operation.
Available y Options:
F
Resizes the first partition to maximum size allowed based
on file system t type.
L
Resizes the last partition to maximum size allowed based on
file system type.
n=xxxxM
- indicates that the n?h destination partition is to have a size
of xxxx Mb. (e.g, SZE2=800M indicates partition two is to
have 800 mb.) n=mmP - indicates that the n?h destination
partition is to have a size of mm percent of the target disk.
n=F
- indicates that the n?h destination partition is to remain
fixed in size.
n=V
- Indicates that the partition will be resized according to the
following rules:
Rule 1 - If the destination disk is larger than the original
source disk, then the partition(s) will be expanded to have
the maximum amount of space subject to the free space
available and the partition type (e.g, FAT16 partitions will
have a maximum size of 2048Mb.)
Rule 2 - If the destination disk is smaller than the original
source disk, (but still large enough to accommodate the
data from the source disk), the free space left over after the
B-14
Appendix
data space has been satisfied will be distributed between the
destination partitions in proportion to the data usage in the
source partitions Someexamples follow that will help
illustrate:
-fx
flag Exit. Normally when Ghost has finished copying a new
system to a disk, it prompts the user to reboot with a press
Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot window. However, if Ghost is being
run as part of a batch file it is sometimes useful to have it
just exist back to the DOS prompt after completion so that
further batch commands may be processed. -fx enables
this. See -rb for another option on completing a clone.
-ia
Image All. The Image All switch forces Ghost to do a
sector by sector copy of all partitions. When copying a
partition from a disk to an image file or to another disk,
Ghost examines the source partition and decides whether to
copy just the files and directory structure, or to do an
image (sector by sector) copy. If it understands the internal
format of the partition it defaults to copying the files and
directory structure. Generally this is the best option, but
occasionally if a disk has been set up with special hidden
security files that are in specific positions on the partition ,
the only way to reproduce them accurately on the target
partition is via an image or sector-by-sector copy.
-span
enables spanning across volumes.
-split=x
splits image file into ‘x’ Mb? Mb spans. Use this to create a
‘forced’ size volume set. For example, if you would like to
force smaller image files from a 1024 Megabyte drive, you
could specify 200 megabyte segments.For example, ghost.
exe -split=200 will divide the image into 200 Megabyte
segments.
-sure
use the -sure switch in conjunction with -clone to avoid
being prompted with the final ‘Proceed with disk clone
destination drive will be overwritten?’ question. This
command is useful in batch mode.
B-15
Appendix
Example 1:
To copy drive one to drive two on a PC, without final prompt if OK to
proceed.
ghost.exe -clone,mode=copy,src=1,dst=2 –sure
Example 2:
To connect via NetBIOS to another PC running Ghost in slave mode, and
dump a disk image of local drive two to the remote file c:\drive2.gho
ghost.exe -clone,mode=dump,src=2,dst=C:\drive2.gho -nbm
Note: The slave Ghost can be started with ghost –nbs
Example 3:
To copy drive one, second partition on a PC to drive two, first parti-tion
the same PC, without final prompt
ghost.exe -clone,mode=pcopy,src=1:2,dst=2:1 –sure
Example 4:
To dump the second partition of drive one to an image file on a mapped
drive g:
ghost.exe -clone,mode=pdump,src=1:2,dst=g:\part2.gho
Example 5:
To load partition 2 from a two-partition image file on a mapped drive g:
onto the second partition of the local disk
ghost -clone,mode=pload,src=g:\part2.gho:2,dst=1:2
Example 6:
To load drive 2 from an image file and resize the destination partitions into a
20:40 allocation
ghost.exe -clone,mode=load,src=g:\2prtdisk.gho,dst=2,sze1=60P,
sze2=40P
