System BIOS configuration
This chapter describes the basic functions of the AMIBIOS software.
System BIOS overview
A Basic Input/Output System, or BIOS, is a set of programs permanently stored in an EEPROM
chipset located on the system board. These programs serve as an interface between the server’s
hardware components and its operating system. This HP ProLiant DL288 G6 server features the
AMIBIOS software—a ROM BIOS-based diagnostic tool that monitors system activity and performs
constant hardware testing to ensure proper system operation.
AMIBIOS software
The AMIBIOS software serves three functions:
•
Configure the system settings via the AMIBIOS Setup Utility
Using the Setup Utility, you can install, configure, and optimize the hardware devices on your
system (such as clock, memory, and hard drives).
•
Initialize hardware at boot via POST routines
At power-on or reset, the software performs Power-On Self Test (POST) routines to test system
resources and run the operating system.
•
Perform run-time routines
Using the software, perform basic hardware routines that can be called from DOS and Microsoft
Windows applications.
AMIBIOS Setup Utility
NOTE: For ease of reading, the AMIBIOS Setup Utility will be referred to as “Setup” or “Setup
Utility” in this guide. Also, the screenshots used in this guide display default system values. These
values may not be the same as those in your server.
The AMIBIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into the server BIOS. Because
most systems are already properly configured and optimized, there is normally no need to run this
utility.
You need to run this utility under the following conditions:
•
When changing the system configuration, including:
○
○
○
○
○
Setting the system time and date
Configuring the hard drives
Specifying the boot device sequence
Configuring the power management modes
Setting up system passwords or making other changes to the security setup
System BIOS configuration
4
•
When a configuration error is detected by the system and you are prompted by a "Run Setup"
message to make changes to the BIOS settings.
NOTE: If you repeatedly receive “Run Setup” messages, the battery located on the system board
may be defective. In this case, the system cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Ask a
qualified technician for assistance.
The Setup Utility loads the configuration values in a battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS
RAM. This memory area is not part of the system RAM, which allows configuration data to be
retained when power is turned off. The values take effect when the system is booted. POST uses these
values to configure the hardware. If the values and the actual hardware do not agree, POST
generates an error message. You must run the Setup Utility to change the BIOS settings from the
default or current configuration.
Accessing the Setup Utility
1.
Turn on the monitor and the server.
If the server is already turned on, save your data and exit all open applications, and then restart
the server.
During POST, press F10. If you fail to press F10 before POST is completed, you need to restart
the server and repeat this step. The first page displayed is the Main menu. Use the left (←) and
right (→) arrow keys to move between selections on the menu bar.
Navigating through the Setup Utility
Use the keys listed in the legend bar on the bottom of the Setup Utility screen to access the various
menu and submenu screens of the Setup Utility. Table 1 lists these legend keys and their respective
functions.

setting.
Enabled
Disable the Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch feature.
Disabled
Enabling the DCU Prefetcher is intended to speed up data accessed by a
program by prefetching to the L1 data cache. DCU prefetching improves
performance if data in large structures is arranged sequentially in the
order used by the program.
Enabled
If data access patterns are sparse instead of local, some performance
degradation can occur under high CPU load due to bandwidth issues. In
such cases, disabling DCU Prefetcher may improve performance.
Disabled
Data Reuse reduces the frequency of L3 cache updates from the L1
cache. In most cases, this improves performance by reducing the internal
bandwidth consumed by constant updates of L1 cache lines in the L3
cache.
Enabled
However, since this behavior can result in more requests to main

memory, in some cases, overall performance may be degraded. Whether
Data Reuse should be enabled or disabled for a particular workload will
depend on the memory access patterns of the workload.
Intel VT-d
Enable Intel's Virtualization Technology support for Direct I/O VT-d. This
feature offers fully-protected I/O resource-sharing across the Intel

Background scrubbing (also known as patrol scrubbing) is a memory errorcorrection scheme that works in the background looking for and correcting
resident errors. Instead of only reading the data and ECC bits, correcting
them, and writing them back to memory when a correctable memory error
occurs, the system will constantly be reading and writing memory locations.
Thus, the system will be constantly scrubbing all of the contents of memory
in an effort to correct soft errors before a correctable error even occurs.

3.
Press F9 to load the default values.
4.
Choose Save Changes and Exit on the Exit menu, and press Enter to save the changes and close
the Setup Utility.
Clearing CMOS
You may need to clear the Setup configuration values (CMOS) if the configuration has been
corrupted, or if incorrect settings made in the Setup Utility have caused error messages to be
unreadable. Clearing the CMOS data removes the supervisor password.
The clear CMOS setting is on the jumper block (J27-A) on the system board. Refer to your server hood
label or the HP ProLiant DL288 G6 Server Maintenance and Service Guide for the location of this
jumper block and the clear CMOS setting.
To clear CMOS:
1.
