1. In STANDARD CMOS, set “HALT ON ERRORS” setting to “ALL
BUT KEYBOARD”.

2. In PNP AND PCI SETUP, set “PNP OS INSTALLED” setting to
“YES” and set “USB IRQ” setting to “ENABLED”.
NOTE:
The UR-Series KVM USB switch is applicable for USB keyboard
and mouse switching from one computer to the other. If you plan to
share other peripherals such as a CCD camera, printer or scanner, it
is required that you shut down the driver of the computer before
switching to another computer. Because port switching is equivalent
to unplugging the USB cable from one computer and plugging it in to
another one, some USB drivers check attached USB peripherals all
the time and will not accept this.
