BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can update using the
provided utility described in section 4.1 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 can change the configuration of
your computer in the future. For example, you can enable the security password feature or
change 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 chip.
The firmware chip on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up the
computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. Press <Del>
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>+<Del>,
or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can also restart by turning the
system off 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. Being a menu-driven
program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make your selections from the
available options using the navigation keys.

RAID Configuration
5.1
Setting up RAID
The motherboard comes with the Intel® C232 controller that supports Intel® Rapid Storage
Technology enterprise Option ROM Utility with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and RAID 5
support (for both Windows® OS and Linux).
5.1.1
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write data in
parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a single drive but at a
sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone, thus improving data access
and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to a
second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications
to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID
configuration provides data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use
two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be
of the same size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy data) having
to be calculated and written. With the RAID 10 configuration you get all the benefits of both
RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive
and three new drives for this setup.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more hard disk drives. Among
the advantages of RAID 5 configuration include better HDD performance, fault tolerance, and
higher storage capacity. The RAID 5 configuration is best suited for transaction processing,
relational database applications, enterprise resource planning, and other business systems.
Use a minimum of three identical hard disk drives for this setup.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID set, copy
first the RAID driver from the support DVD to a floppy disk before you install an operating
system to the selected hard disk drive.
5-2
Chapter 5: RAID Configuration
5.1.2
Installing hard disk drives
The motherboard supports Serial ATA for RAID set configuration. For optimal performance,
install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the system
user guide.
2.
Connect a SATA signal cable to the signal connector at the back of each drive and to
the SATA connector on the motherboard.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
5.1.3
Setting the RAID mode in BIOS
You must set the RAID mode in the BIOS Setup to be able to launch the RAID utilities before
you can create a RAID set from the SATA hard disk drives attached to the SATA connectors
supported by Intel® C232 chipset.
To do this:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2.
Go to the Advanced Menu > SATA Configuration, then press <Enter>.
3.Set SATA Mode to [RAID].
4.
Press <F10> to save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 4 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS Setup.
5.1.4
RAID configuration utilities
Depending on the RAID connectors that you use, you can create a RAID set using the utilities
embedded in each RAID controller. For example, use the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology
enterprise SATA Option ROM Utility if you installed Serial ATA hard disk drives on the
Serial ATA connectors supported by the Intel® C232 chipset.

Option ROM Utility
The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise SATA Option ROM utility allows you to create
RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10 (RAID 1+0), and RAID 5 set from Serial ATA hard disk drives that
are connected to the Serial ATA connectors supported by the Southbridge.
Before you proceed, ensure that you have installed the Serial ATA hard disk drives,
and have set the correct SATA mode in the BIOS setup. You can refer to sections
5.1.2 Installing hard disk drives and 5.1.3 Setting the RAID mode in BIOS for more
information.
To launch the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise SATA Option ROM utility:
1.
Turn on the system.
