B.1 One Key Recovery Introduction
The IEI one key recovery is an easy-to-use front end for the Norton Ghost system backup
and recovery tool. The one key recovery provides quick and easy shortcuts for creating a
backup and reverting to that backup or for reverting to the factory default settings.
To create the system backup the main storage device must be split into two partitions
(three partitions for Linux). The first partition will be for the operating system, while the
second partition will be invisible to the operating system and contain the backup made by
the one key recovery software.
B.1.1 System Requirement
The partition created for recovery images must be big enough to contain both the factory
default image and the user backup image. The size must be calculated before creating the
partitions. Please take the following table as a reference when calculating the size of the
partition.

Page 156
KINO-945GSE3 User Manual
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS. Contact IEI support or visit the IEI
website for drivers for other operating systems.
The Watchdog Timer is a hardware-based timer that attempts to restart the system when it
stops working. The system may stop working because of external EMI or software bugs.
The Watchdog Timer ensures that standalone systems like ATMs will automatically
attempt to restart in the case of system problems.
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 E-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. When 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 157
KINO-945GSE3 User Manual
NOTE:
The Watchdog Timer is activated through software. The software
application that activates the Watchdog Timer must also deactivate it
when closed. If the Watchdog Timer is not deactivated, the system will
automatically restart after the Timer has finished its countdown.
