3.1 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the
IMBA-9454ISA may result in permanent damage to the IMBA-9454ISA
and severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the IMBA-9454ISA. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is
therefore critical that whenever the IMBA-9454ISA, or any other electrical component is
handled, the following anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.
Wear an anti-static wristband: - Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging the board.
Self-grounding:- Before handling the board touch any grounded conducting
material. During the time the board is handled, frequently touch any
conducting materials that are connected to the ground.
Use an anti-static pad: When configuring the IMBA-9454ISA, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
IMBA-9454ISA.
Only handle the edges of the PCB:-: When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.
3.2 Unpacking
3.2.1 Unpacking Precautions

Page 225
IMBA-9454ISA ATX Motherboard
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. IEI support is
contacted or the IEI website visited for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMI or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer:
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH Sub-function:
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table D-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. While the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the Watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.
Page 226
IMBA-9454ISA ATX Motherboard
NOTE:
When exiting a program it is necessary to disable the Watchdog Timer,
otherwise the system resets.

IMBA-9454ISA ATX Motherboard
G.1 Introduction
The Intel® ICH8DO chipset can provide data protection for serial ATA (SATA) disks via the
Intel® Matrix Storage Manager using one of three fault-tolerant RAID levels: RAID 1, 5 or
10. When using two hard drives, matrix RAID allows RAID 0 and RAID 1 functions to be
combined, where critical files can be stored on RAID 1, and RAID 0 can be used for
non-critical items such as software. RAID 5 and RAID 0 can be combined to provide
higher performance, capacity, and fault tolerance.
CAUTION!
A configured RAID volume (which may consist of multiple hard drives) appears
to an operating system as a contingent storage space. The operating system
will not be able to distinguish the physical disk drives contained in a RAID
configuration.
G.1.1 Precautions
One key benefit a RAID configuration brings is that a single hard drive can fail within a
RAID array without damaging data. With RAID1 array, a failed drive can be replaced and
the RAID configuration restored.
WARNING!
Irrecoverable data loss occurs if a working drive is removed when trying to
remove a failed drive. It is strongly recommended to mark the physical
connections of all SATA disk drives. Drive locations can be identified by
attaching stickers to the drive bays. If a drive member of a RAID array should
fail, the failed drive can then be correctly identified.
Page 238
IMBA-9454ISA ATX Motherboard
CAUTION!
Do not accidentally disconnect the SATA drive cables. Carefully route the
cables within the chassis to avoid system down time.
G.2 Features and Benefits
Supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 10
Supports connectivity to two or more disk drives
Supported Operating Systems include: Windows XP, Windows Server 2003
and Windows Vista
G.3 Accessing the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager
To access the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager, please follow the steps below.
Step 1: Connect SATA drives to the system. Connect two or more SATA drives to the
system. Make sure the drives have the same capacity, are the same type and
have the same speed.
NOTE:
Make sure the SATA drives are EXACTLY the same when they are configured
in a RAID configuration. If they are not the same size, disk drive capacity is
sacrificed and overall performance affected.
Step 2: Enable SATA drives in BIOS. Start the computer and access the BIOS setup
program. Enable SATA support for all IDE devices. Refer to the applicable BIOS
configuration section in this user manual.
Page 239
IMBA-9454ISA ATX Motherboard
Step 3: Save and Exit BIOS. After the SATA support option is enabled, save and exit
the BIOS.
Step 4: Reboot the system. Reboot the system after saving and exiting the BIOS.
Step 5: Press Ctrl+I. During the system boot process, press Ctrl+I when prompted to
enter the RAID configuration software.
Step 6: Configure the RAID settings. Use the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager to
configure the RAID array. Brief descriptions of configuration options are given
below.
Step 7: Install the OS. After the RAID array has been configured, install the OS. To do
this, please refer to the documentation that came with the OS.Step 0:
G.4 RAID Configuration
G.4.1 Creating a RAID Volume
WARNING!
All data previously stored on the member drives of a RAID configuration are
destroyed during the RAID initialization process. If “used” drives are used to
create a RAID array, make sure the data has been moved or backed up
before creating a RAID array out of the disk drives.
