UEFI BIOS Setup

Introduction

The purpose of this manual is to describe the settings in the AMI UEFI

BIOS Setup program on this motherboard. The Setup program allows users to modify the basic system configuration and save these settings to

NVRAM.

UEFI BIOS determines what a computer can do without accessing programs from a disk. This system controls most of the input and output devices such as keyboard, mouse, serial ports and disk drives. BIOS activates at the first stage of the booting process, loading and executing the operating system. Some additional features, such as virus and password protection or chipset fine-tuning options are also included in

UEFI BIOS.

The rest of this manual will to guide you through the options and settings in UEFI BIOS Setup.

Plug and Play Support

This AMI UEFI BIOS supports the Plug and Play Version 1.0A specification.

EPA Green PC Support

This AMI UEFI BIOS supports Version 1.03 of the EPA Green PC specification.

ACPI Support

AMI ACPI UEFI BIOS support Version 1.0/2.0 of Advanced Configuration and Power interface specification (ACPI). It provides ASL code for power management and device configuration capabilities as defined in the ACPI specification, developed by Microsoft, Intel and Toshiba.

PCI Bus Support

This AMI UEFI BIOS also supports Version 2.3 of the Intel PCI (Peripheral

Component Interconnect) local bus specification.

DRAM Support

DDR3L SO-DRAM (Double Data Rate III Synchronous DRAM) is supported.
