Considerations Prior to Installation
Preparing Your Embedded Board
The embedded board contains numerous delicate electronic circuits and components, which can
become damaged as a result of electrostatic discharge (ESD). Thus, prior to installation, please
follow the instructions below:
1. Please turn off the computer and unplug its power cord.
2. When handling the board, avoid touching any metal leads or connectors.
3. It is best to wear an electrostatic discharge (ESD) cuff when handling electronic components
(CPU, RAM).
4. Prior to installing the electronic components, please have these items on top of an antistatic
pad or within an electrostatic shielding container.
5. Please verify that the power supply is switched off before unplugging the power supply
connector from the motherboard.

AMI BIOS Setup
4-1 4-1
WAFER-9371A-R10 User Manual
Introduction
This chapter discusses AMI's Setup program built into the ROM BIOS. The Setup program
allows users to modify the basic system configuration. This special information is then stored in
battery-backed RAM so that it retains the Setup information when the power is turned off.
Starting Setup
The AMI BIOS is immediately activated when you first power on the computer. The BIOS reads the
system information contained in the CMOS and begins the process of checking out the system
configuration. When it finishes, the BIOS will seek an operating system on one of the disks and
then launch and turn control over to the operating system.
While the BIOS is in control, the Setup program can be activated in one of two ways:
1.
2.
By pressing <Del> immediately after switching the system on, or
By pressing the <Del> key when the following message appears briefly at the bottom of
the screen during the POST.
Press DEL to enter SETUP.
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the system
to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the "RESET" button on the system case.
You
may also restart by simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Delete> keys.
Using Setup
In general, you use the arrow keys to highlight items, press <Enter> to select, use the PageUp and
PageDown keys to change entries, press <F1> for help and press <Esc> to quit. The following
table provides more detail about how to navigate in the Setup program using the keyboard.

Getting Help
Press F1 to pop up a small help window that describes the appropriate keys to use and the
possible selections for the highlighted item. To exit the Help Window press <Esc> or the F1 key
again.
If, after making and saving system changes with Setup, you discover that your computer no longer is
able to boot, the AMI BIOS supports an override to the CMOS settings which resets your system to
its defaults.
The best advice is to only alter settings which you thoroughly understand. To this end, we
strongly recommend that you avoid making any changes to the chipset defaults. These defaults
have been carefully chosen by both AMI and your systems manufacturer to provide the absolute
maximum performance and reliability. Even a seemingly small change to the chipset setup has
the potential for causing you to use the override.
NOTE:
Your BIOS setup screen may slightly differ from the screenshots
shown in this chapter. This may result from the modification
changes made during BIOS update.

NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment.
It is recommended
you contact IEI support or visit our website for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
The Watchdog Timer is a device to ensure that standalone systems can always recover from
catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash.
This condition may have occurred by EMI
or a software bug. When the CPU stops working normally, hardware on the board will perform
hardware reset (cold boot) to bring the system back to a known state.
Three I/O ports control the Watchdog Timer:

Prior to enable the Watchdog Timer, users have to define the Timer first.
The output data is a
value of time interval and the range of the value is from 01 (hex) to FF (hex) and the range for time
interval ranges from 1 second to 255 seconds.

out period that is selected by software, please refer to the example program.
A tolerance of at least 5% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the operating
system (DOS), such as disk I/Os that can be very time consuming.
Therefore, if the timeout
period has been set to 10 seconds, the I/O port 443H must be read within 7 seconds.
NOTE:
When exiting a program it is necessary to disable the Watchdog Timer,
otherwise the system will reset.
