The CrashFree BIOS 2 auto recovery tool allows you to restore BIOS from the motherboard support CD, or from a USB floppy disk or flash disk that contains the BIOS file, in case the current BIOS on the motherboard fails or gets corrupted.

• Prepare the support CD that came with the motherboard that contains the motherboard BIOS (P5R8L.BIN) before proceeding with the BIOS update process.

• If you have saved a copy of the original motherboard BIOS to a bootable USB floppy disk or USB flash disk, you may also use this disk to restore the BIOS.

To recover the BIOS from the support CD:

Make sure the optical drive is set as secondary master device when recovering the BIOS using the support CD.

Chapter 5: BIOS setup

5.2

BIOS Setup program

This motherboard supports a programmable Firmware Hub (FWH) that you can update using the provided utility described in section 5.1

Managing and updating your BIOS.”

Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring your system, or prompted to “Run Setup”. This section explains how to configure your system using this utility.

Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you may want to change the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you may want to enable the security password feature or make changes to the power management settings. This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the firmware hub.

The firmware hub stores the Setup utility. When you start up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. Press

<Delete> during the Power-On Self Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility, otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.

If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing

<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can also restart by turning the system off and then back on.

Do this last option only if the first two failed.

The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. It is a menu-driven program, which means you can scroll through the various sub-menus and make your selections among the predetermined choices.

Because the BIOS software is constantly being updated, the following

BIOS setup screens and descriptions are for reference purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
