11) CLR_CMOS (Clear CMOS Jumper)
Use this jumper to clear the CMOS values (e.g. date information and BIOS configurations) and reset the
CMOS values to factory defaults. To clear the CMOS values, use a metal object like a screwdriver to
touch the two pins for a few seconds.
Open: Normal
Short: Clear CMOS Values
•• Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before clearing the CMOS values.
•• After system restart, go to BIOS Setup to load factory defaults (select Load Optimized Defaults) or manually configure the BIOS settings (refer to Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," for BIOS
configurations).
12) BAT (Battery)
The battery provides power to keep the values (such as BIOS configurations, date, and time information)
in the CMOS when the computer is turned off. Replace the battery when the battery voltage drops to a
low level, or the CMOS values may not be accurate or may be lost.
You may clear the CMOS values by removing the battery:
111 Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord.
222 Gently remove the battery from the battery holder and wait for one minute.
(Or use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the positive and negative
terminals of the battery holder, making them short for 5 seconds.)
333 Replace the battery.
444 Plug in the power cord and restart your computer.
•• Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord before replacing the battery.
•• Replace the battery with an equivalent one. Danger of explosion if the battery is replaced with
an incorrect model.
•• Contact the place of purchase or local dealer if you are not able to replace the battery by yourself or uncertain about the battery model.
•• When installing the battery, note the orientation of the positive side (+) and the negative side (-)
of the battery (the positive side should face up).
•• Used batteries must be handled in accordance with local environmental regulations.

Chapter 2 BIOS Setup
To access the BIOS Setup program, press the <Delete> key during the POST when the power is turned on.
To see more advanced BIOS Setup menu options, you can press <Ctrl> + <F1> in the main menu of the
BIOS Setup program.
To upgrade the BIOS, use either the GIGABYTE Q-Flash or @BIOS utility.
•• Q-Flash allows the user to quickly and easily upgrade or back up BIOS without entering the operating
system.
•• @BIOS is a Windows-based utility that searches and downloads the latest version of BIOS from the
Internet and updates the BIOS.
•• Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current
version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with
caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction.
•• It is recommended that you not alter the default settings (unless you need to) to prevent system
instability or other unexpected results. Inadequately altering the settings may result in system's
failure to boot. If this occurs, try to clear the CMOS values and reset the board to default values.
(Refer to the "Load Optimized Defaults" section in this chapter or introductions of the battery/
clear CMOS jumper in Chapter 1 for how to clear the CMOS values.)

Chapter 4 Appendix
4-1 Configuring SATA Hard Drive(s)
Before you begin
Please prepare:
• At least two SATA hard drives (to ensure optimal performance, it is recommended that you use two hard
drives with identical model and capacity). If you do not want to create RAID, you may prepare only one
hard drive.
• Windows 7/Vista/XP setup disk.
• Motherboard driver disk.
• A USB floppy disk drive (needed during Windows XP installation)
• An empty formatted floppy disk (needed during Windows XP installation)
Configuring the Onboard SATA Controller
A. Installing SATA hard drive(s) in your computer
Attach one end of the SATA signal cable to the rear of the SATA hard drive and the other end to available
SATA port on the motherboard. Then connect the power connector from your power supply to the hard drive.
B. Configuring SATA controller mode in BIOS Setup
Make sure to configure the SATA controller mode correctly in system BIOS Setup. For the BIOS Setup
menus, refer to Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," "Integrated Peripherals."
Steps:
1. Turn on your computer and press <Delete> to enter BIOS Setup during the POST (Power-On Self-Test).
Make sure OnChip SATA Controller is enabled. To enable RAID for the SATA2_0/1/2/3 connectors, set
OnChip SATA Type to RAID. To enable RAID for the SATA2_4/SATA2_5 connectors, set OnChip SATA
Type to RAID and set OnChip SATA Port4/5 Type to As SATA Type.
2. Save changes and exit BIOS Setup.
The BIOS Setup menus described in this section may differ from the exact settings for your motherboard. The actual BIOS Setup menu options you will see shall depend on the motherboard you
have and the BIOS version.
C. Configuring RAID set in RAID BIOS
Enter the RAID BIOS setup utility to configure a RAID array. After the POST memory test begins and
before the operating system boot begins, look for a message which says "Press <Ctrl-F> to enter RAID
Option ROM Utility". Press <Ctrl> + <F> to enter the RAID BIOS setup utility. To create a new array, press
<2> to enter the LD View/LD Define Menu window. To create an array, press <Ctrl+C> to access the LD
Define Menu. In the LD Define Menu, use the up or down arrow key to move to an item for further configuration. In the following procedure, we'll create RAID 0 as an example.
Steps:
1. Under the RAID Mode section, press the <SPACE> key to select RAID 0.
2. Set the Stripe Block size. 64 KB is the default.
3. Under the Drives Assignments section, press the up or down arrow key to highlight a drive.
4. Press the <SPACE> key or <Y>to change the Assignment option to Y. This action adds the drive to the
disk array. The Drv section will show the number of disks assigned.
- 38 -
5. Press <Ctrl>+<Y> keys to save the information. The message in Figure 1 will appear. Press <Ctrl>+<Y>
to input the array name. If you do not input the array name, the default array name will be used.
Please press Ctrl-Y key to input the LD Name
or press any key to exit.
If you do not input any LD name, the default
LD name will be used.
Figure 1
6. When the next message appears, press <Ctrl>+<Y> to clear the MBR or press other keys to ignore this
option.
Fast Initialization Option has been selected
It will erase the MBR data of the disk.
<Press Ctrl-Y Key if you are sure to erase it>
<Press any other key to ignore this option>
Figure 2
7. Then, the message in Figure 8 will appear. Press <Ctrl>+<Y> to set the capacity of the RAID array or
press other keys to set the array to its maximum capacity.
Press Ctrl-Y to Modify Array Capacity or press any
other key to use maximum capacity...
Figure 3
8. After the creation is complete, the screen will return to LD View Menu where you will see the newlycreated array.
9. Press <Esc> to return to Main Menu and press <Esc> again if you want to exit the RAID BIOS utility.
Making a SATA RAID/AHCI Driver Diskette
Before installing Windows XP, connect a USB floppy disk drive to your computer first because you need to install the SATA RAID/AHCI driver from a floppy disk that contains the driver during the OS installation. To copy
the RAID/AHCI driver for Windows XP, copy all files in the \BootDrv\Hxp folder in the motherboard driver disk
to your floppy disk.
Installing the SATA RAID/AHCI Driver and Operating System
A. Installing Windows XP
Restart your system to boot from the Windows XP setup disk and press <F6> as soon as you see the message "Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver." Insert the floppy disk containing the
SATA RAID/AHCI driver. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver that suits your operating system. When completed, proceed with the Windows XP installation.
B. Installing Windows 7/Vista
Restart your system to boot from the Windows 7/Vista setup disk and perform standard OS installation steps.
Select Load Driver. Insert the motherboard driver disk and then browse to the location of the driver. Then follow the on-screen instructions to load the driver. The locations of the drivers for Windows 7 are as follows:
RAID driver for Windows 32-bit: \BootDrv\Hw7\RAID\W7
RAID driver for Windows 64-bit: \BootDrv\Hw7\RAID\W764A
AHCI driver for Windows 32-bit: \BootDrv\Hw7\AHCI\W7
AHCI driver for Windows 64-bit: \BootDrv\Hw7\AHCI\W764A
(Note: The LH/LH64A folder contains the driver for Windows Vista 32-bit/64-bit)
After loading the driver, continue the OS installation.
