1-10
Chapter 1: Introduction
1-3 Special Features
Recovery from AC Power Loss
Basic I/O System (BIOS) provides a setting for you to determine how the system
will respond when AC power is lost and then restored to the system. You can
choose for the system to remain powered off (in which case you must press the
power switch to turn it back on), or for it to automatically return to a power-on state.
See the Advanced BIOS Setup section to change this setting. The default setting
is Last State.
1-4 PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the PC health monitoring features of the board. All have an
onboard System Hardware Monitoring chip that supports PC health monitoring. An
onboard voltage monitor will scan these onboard voltages continuously: CPU core,
+1.05V, +3.3V, +5V, +12V, +3.3V Stdby, +5V Stdby, VBAT, Memory and Chipset.
Once a voltage becomes unstable, a warning is given, or an error message is sent
to the screen. The user can adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity
of the voltage monitor.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Control
PC health monitoring in the BIOS can check the RPM status of the cooling fans. The
onboard CPU and chassis fans are controlled by Thermal Management via BIOS
(under the Hardware Monitoring section in the Advanced Setting).
Environmental Temperature Control
The thermal control sensor monitors the CPU temperature in real time and will turn
on the thermal control fan whenever the CPU temperature exceeds a user-defined
threshold. The overheat circuitry runs independently from the CPU. Once the thermal sensor detects that the CPU temperature is too high, it will automatically turn
on the thermal fans to prevent the CPU from overheating. The onboard chassis
thermal circuitry can monitor the overall system temperature and alert the user when
the chassis temperature is too high.
Note: To avoid possible system overheating, please be sure to provide
adequate airflow to your system.
1-11
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
System Resource Alert
This feature is available when the system is used with SuperDoctor ® 5 in the
Windows ® OS environment or used with SuperDoctor II in Linux. SuperDoctor
is used to notify the user of certain system events. For example, you can also
configure SuperDoctor to provide you with warnings when the system temperature,
CPU temperatures, voltages and fan speeds go beyond predefined thresholds.
1-5 ACPI Features
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. The ACPI specification defines a flexible and abstract hardware interface that provides a standard
way to integrate power management features throughout a PC system, including
its hardware, operating system and application software. This enables the system
to automatically turn on and off peripherals such as CD-ROMs, network cards, hard
disk drives and printers.
In addition to enabling operating system-directed power management, ACPI also
provides a generic system event mechanism for Plug and Play, and an operating
system-independent interface for configuration control. ACPI leverages the Plug and
Play BIOS data structures, while providing a processor architecture-independent
implementation that is compatible with the Microsoft® Windows® series of Operating Systems.
Slow Blinking LED for Suspend-State Indicator
When the CPU goes into a suspend state, the chassis power LED will start to blink
to indicate that the CPU is in suspend mode. When the user presses any key, the
CPU will "wake up", and the LED will automatically stop blinking and remain on.
1-6 Power Supply
As with all computer products, a stable power source is necessary for proper and
reliable operation. It is even more important for processors that have high CPU
clock rates.
This motherboard accommodates 20-pin power supplies. Although most power supplies generally meet the specifications required by the CPU, some are inadequate.
In addition, the 12V 8-pin power connectors located at JPW2 and JPW3 are also
required to ensure adequate power to the GPU Add-on card.
Warning: To prevent damage to the power supply or motherboard, please use a
power supply that contains a 20-pin and an 8-pin power connectors. Failure in doing
so will void the manufacturer warranty on your power supply and motherboard. It is
1-12
Chapter 1: Introduction
strongly recommended that you use a high quality power supply that meets ower supply Specifications 2.02 or above. It must also be SSI compliant. (For more information,
please refer to the web site at http://www.ssiforum.org/). Additionally, in areas where
noisy power transmission is present, you may choose to install a line filter to shield the
computer from noise. It is recommended that you also install a power surge protector
to help avoid problems caused by power surges.

Installation
2-1 Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic-Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic com­ponents. To avoid damaging your system board, it is important to handle it very carefully. The following
measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD.
Precautions
• Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
• Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
• Handle the board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
• When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
• Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in
use.
• For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the motherboard.
• Use only the correct type of onboard CMOS battery. Do not install the onboard
battery upside down to avoid possible explosion.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure that the person handling it is static protected.
2-1
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
2-2 Motherboard Installation
All motherboards have standard mounting holes to fit different types of chassis.
Make sure that the locations of all the mounting holes for both motherboard and
chassis match. Although a chassis may have both plastic and metal mounting fasteners, metal ones are highly recommended because they ground the motherboard
to the chassis. Make sure that the metal standoffs click in or are screwed in tightly.
Then use a screwdriver to secure the motherboard onto the motherboard tray.

Memory Population Guidelines
When installing memory modules, the DIMM slots should be populated in the following order: DIMMA1, DIMMB1, DIMMC1, DIMMD1 then DIMMA2, DIMMB2, DIMMC2,
DIMMD2.
•
Always use DDR4 DIMM modules of the same size, type and speed.
•
Mixed DIMM speeds can be installed. However, all DIMMs will run at the speed
of the slowest DIMM.
•
The motherboard will support odd-numbered modules (1, 3, 5, or 7 modules installed). However, for best memory performance, install DIMM modules in pairs
to activate memory interleaving.

2-7 Jumper Settings
Explanation of Jumpers
To modify the operation of the motherboard, jumpers can be used to choose
between optional settings. Jumpers
create shorts between two pins to
change the function of the connector.
Pin 1 is identified with a square solder
pad on the printed circuit board.
Note: On two-pin jumpers,
"Closed" means the jumper
is on, and "Open" means the
jumper is off the pins.

Clear CMOS (JBT1)
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS. Instead of pins, this "jumper" consists of contact pads
to prevent accidental clearing of CMOS. To clear CMOS, use a metal object such
as a small screwdriver to touch both pads at the same time to short the connection.
Always remove the AC power cord from the system before clearing CMOS.
Important: For an ATX power supply, you must completely shut down the
system, remove the AC power cord and then short JBT1 to clear CMOS.

3-3 Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What type of memory does my motherboard support?
Answer: Please see Section 2-4 for a comprehensive answer.
Question: How do I update my BIOS?
Answer: It is recommended that you do not upgrade your BIOS if you are not
experiencing any problems with your system. Updated BIOS files are located on
our website at http://www.supermicro.com/support/bios/. Please check our BIOS
warning message and the information on how to update your BIOS on our web
site. Select your motherboard model and download the BIOS ROM file to your
computer. Also, check the current BIOS revision to make sure that it is newer than
your BIOS before downloading. Please unzip the BIOS file onto a bootable device
or a USB pen/thumb drive. To flash the BIOS, run the batch file named "ami.bat"
with the new BIOS ROM file from your bootable device or USB pen/thumb drive.
Use the following format:
F:\> ami.bat BIOS-ROM-filename.xxx <Enter>
Note: Always use the file named “ami.bat” to update the BIOS, and insert
a space between "ami.bat" and the filename. The BIOS-ROM-filename
will bear the motherboard name (i.e., X10SRG-F) and build version as
the extension. For example, "X10SRG-F1.218". When completed, your
system will automatically reboot.
When the BIOS flashing screen is completed, the system will reboot and
will show “Press F1 or F2”. At this point, you will need to load the BIOS
defaults. Press <F1> to go to the BIOS setup screen, and press <F3> to
load the default settings. Next, press <F4> to save and exit. The system
will then reboot.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS to prevent
possible system boot failure!
Note: The SPI BIOS chip installed on this motherboard is not removable.
To repair or replace a damaged BIOS chip, please send your motherboard
to RMA at Supermicro for service.
Question: I think my BIOS is corrupted. How can I recover my BIOS?
Answer: Please see Appendix C-BIOS Recovery for detailed instructions.
Question: Why do I get an error message “IASTOR.SYS read error” and "press F6
to install Intel RAID driver" when installing Windows on my motherboard?
Answer: To solve this issue, disable the IPMI jumper (if your motherboard has this
feature). Another solution is to use a USB floppy drive instead of the onboard floppy
drive. For the IPMI jumper location, please check Chapter 1.

Appendix C
UEFI BIOS Recovery Instructions
Warning: Do not upgrade the BIOS unless your system has a BIOS-related issue.
Flashing the wrong BIOS can cause irreparable damage to the system. In no event shall
Supermicro be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages
arising from a BIOS update. If you need to update the BIOS, do not shut down or reset
the system while the BIOS is updating to avoid possible boot failure.
C-1 An Overview to the UEFI BIOS
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) provides a software-based interface between the operating system and the platform firmware in the pre-boot
environment. The UEFI specification supports an architecture-independent mechanism for add-on card initialization to allow the UEFI OS loader, which is stored in
the add-on card, to boot the system. The UEFI offers a clean, hands-off control to
a computer system at bootup.
C-2 How to Recover the UEFI BIOS Image (-the Main
BIOS Block)
A UEFI BIOS flash chip consists of a recovery BIOS block and a main BIOS block (a
main BIOS image). The boot block contains critical BIOS codes, including memory
detection and recovery codes for the user to flash a new BIOS image if the original
main BIOS image is corrupted. When the system power is on, the boot block codes
execute first. Once it is completed, the main BIOS code will continue with system
initialization and bootup.
Note: Follow the BIOS recovery instructions below for BIOS recovery
when the main BIOS boot crashes. However, when the BIOS boot block
crashes, you will need to follow the procedures below for BIOS recovery.
C-3 To Recover the Main BIOS Block Using a USBAttached Device
This feature allows the user to recover a BIOS image using a USB-attached device
without additional utilities used. A USB flash device such as a USB Flash Drive, or
a USB CD/DVD ROM/RW device can be used for this purpose. However, a USB
Hard Disk drive cannot be used for BIOS recovery at this time.
C-1
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
The file system supported by UEFI is FAT (including FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32)
installed on a bootable or non-bootable USB-attached device. However, the BIOS
might need several minutes to locate the SUPER.ROM file if the media size becomes too large because it contains too many folders and files.
To perform UEFI BIOS recovery using a USB-attached device, follow the instructions below.
1. Using a different machine, copy the "Super.ROM" binary image file into the
disc Root "\" Directory of a USB device or a writeable CD/DVD.
Note: If you cannot locate the "Super.ROM" file in your driver disk, visit
our website at www.supermicro.com to download the BIOS image into
a USB flash device and rename it "Super.ROM" for BIOS recovery use.
2. Insert the USB device that contains the new BIOS image ("Super.ROM") into
your USB drive and power on the system
3. While powering on the system, please keep pressing <Ctrl> and <Home> simultaneously on your keyboard until the following screen (or a screen similar
to the one below) displays.
Warning!! Please stop pressing the <Ctrl> and <Home> keys immediately when you
see the screen (or a similar screen) below; otherwise, it will trigger a system reboot.
Note: On the other hand, if the following screen displays, please load the
"Super.ROM" file to the root folder and connect this folder to the system.
(You can do so by inserting a USB device that contains the new "Super.
ROM" image to your machine for BIOS recovery.)
C-2
Appendix C: UEFI BIOS Recovery
4. After locating the new BIOS binary image, the system will enter the BIOS
Recovery menu as shown below.
Note: At this point, you may decide if you want to start with BIOS recovery.
If you decide to proceed with BIOS recovery, follow the procedures below.
5. When the screen as shown above displays, using the arrow key, select the
item "Proceed with flash update" and press the <Enter> key. You will see the
progress of BIOS recovery as shown in the screen below.
Note: Do not interrupt the process of BIOS flashing until it is completed.
C-3
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
6. After the process of BIOS recovery is completed, press any key to reboot the
system.
7. Using a different system, extract the BIOS package into a bootable USB flash
drive.
8. When a DOS prompt appears, enter FLASH.BAT BIOSname.### at the
prompt.
Note: Do not interrupt this process until BIOS flashing is completed.
9. After seeing the message that BIOS update is completed, unplug the AC
power cable from the power supply to clear the CMOS, and then plug the AC
power cable in the power supply again to power on the system.
10.Press <Del> continuously to enter the BIOS Setup utility.
11. Press <F3> to load default settings.
12.After loading default settings, press <F4> to save the settings and exit the
BIOS Setup utility.

Appendix D: Dual Boot Block
Appendix D
Dual Boot Block on Grantley Platforms
Overview
On X10 Grantley platforms, Supermicro introduces the Dual Boot Block feature that
revives the system from an inert state if the primary boot block in the ROM chip
is damaged. A boot block carries critical codes to boot the system with minimum
hardware requirements for the BIOS recovery flash.
In the previous generation platforms, there is an onboard jumper called JBR1 to
activate the secondary boot block in the ROM chip. However, it is not convenient
for data centers and enterprises.
This document describes how to enable the BIOS recovery flash by using the Dual
Boot Block feature through IPMI GUI browser and IPMI Command Sets on the X10
Grantley platforms.
Before Startup
A USB flash drive with FAT32 file system and Super.ROM stored are required, and
the USB flash drive does not need to be bootable. IPMI firmware that is capable of
supporting BIOS Resilience function in IPMI browser and of mounting virtual media
via OEM CMDs is required, too. The SMCIPMITool is needed if Dual Boot Block is
activated by IPMI Command Sets as stated in Section D-2.
When to Use Dual Boot Block
The primary dual block can get corrupted when it is flashing and encounters a power
outage. The system does not respond nor output video at all after power-on. The
secondary boot block can be activated to kick in the BIOS recovery flash.
How to Use Dual Boot Block
Two methods on how to use the Dual Boot Block feature are introduced in the
following pages:
1. Through the IPMI GUI Browser
2. Through the IPMI Command Sets
These are user-attended operations. IPMI logic on the defective system has to be
alive and functioning. IPMI IP is known to the user.
D-1
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
D-1 IPMI GUI Browser
To perform perform the Dual Boot Block through the IPMI GUI browser, follow the
instructions below:
1. After the IPMI GUI browser log-in, click on the Miscellaneous tab, then BIOS
Resilience, then the Resile button.
2. IPMI prints out a message that indicates the secondary boot block activation.
If the system is on, IPMI forces it to shut down.
D-2
Appendix D: Dual Boot Block
3. Click on the Remote Control tab, then Console Redirection, then the Launch
Console button to open the Java iKVM Viewer.
4. In the Java iKVM Browser, click on the Virtual Media tab, then Virtual Storage to open the Virtual Media Loader.
D-3
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
5. In the Virtual Media loader, click on the Device1 tab, then Logical Drive
Type drop-down menu, then select the USB flash drive with Super.ROM.
Click Plug In, then OK.
6. Click on the Remote Control tab, then Power Control, then check the
Power On Server button. Click on the Perform Action button to power up
the system.
D-4
Appendix D: Dual Boot Block
7. After the system powers on, the secondary boot block starts to initialize the
essential hardware components and locates Super.ROM in the USB flash
drive, which was mounted earlier. If Super.ROM is found, the on-duty boot
block boots to it and finishes the rest of the POST processes. The system
will automatically enter the BIOS recovery flash page in Setup at the end of
POST. Move the cursor to Proceed with flash update and press ENTER.
8. The BIOS recovery flash begins and programs the boot blocks as well as the
main block.
D-5
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
9. A message box will appear to indicate the BIOS recovery flash process is
complete. Press ENTER to finish. The system will do a power cycle to deactivate the dual boot block feature and produce a normal BIOS POST.
D-6
Appendix D: Dual Boot Block
D-2 IPMI Command Sets
To perform perform the Dual Boot Block through the IPMI Command Sets, follow
the instructions below:
1. After the IPMI GUI browser log-in, click on the Remote Control tab, then
Console Redirection, then the Launch Console button to open Java iKVM
Viewer.
2. Open a DOS command prompt for SMCIIPMITool execution. Type ipmi
power down to power off the defective system.
D-7
X10SRG-F Motherboard User’s Manual
3. Enable BIOS Resilience mode in remote IPMI and confirm.
•To enable, type the following command in the command prompt:
ipmi raw 30 70 C2 D5 00 00
•To confirm, type the following command in the command prompt:
impi raw 30 70 C3 D5
4. Mount the USB flash drive with Super.ROM to remote Virtual Media Device 1.
This must de done in the IPMI Shell mode.
•To enter the IPMI Shell mode, type: shell
•To see the list of drives, type: vmwa dev1list
•To mount the drive, type: vmwa dev1drv 2. In this example, the USB flash drive is drive #2 (drv 2). Drive numbers may
vary in each system.
•To confirm if the drive is mounted, type: vmwa status
D-8
Appendix D: Dual Boot Block
5. Power on the remote system for BIOS recovery flash.
•To power on, type: ipmi power up
After the system powers on, the secondary boot block initializes the essential
hardware components and locates Super.ROM in the USB flash drive, which are
the same as Steps 7-9 in Section D-1.
User Approach
Dual Boot Block is not designed for an automatic operation, non user-attended operation. The feature offers an immediate resilience after a BIOS upgrade somehow
stops upon flashing the on-duty boot block. For a BIOS upgrade on multi-node, SUM
is recommended. Please contact your Field Application Engineer representative for
an understanding of the SUM product.
