without using jumpers setting.
2. Manual Voltage Setting
if using an older processor without "Pentium Pro" marking which
does not support VID, you must manually set JP23-JP26 for differ-

Introduction
Overview
P6I440FX Commander green main board provides a highly inte-
grated solution for fully compatible, high performance PC/AT
platforms, and supports Intel Pentium® Pro processor. Flexible
main memory size can be installed from 8MB up to 256MB
DRAMs, so as to give full play to the advantages of the Intel
Pentium® Pro processor CPU. The main board offers a wide range
of interface to support integrated on-board IDE and on-board VO
function,
The current Green function is divided into three phases : Doze,
Standby and Suspend.

Hardware Settings
There are some hardware settings on the board. They specify
configuration options for various features. The settings are made
using something called a jumper. Jumpers on the system board
provide information to your operation about installed options and
system settings. A jumper is a set of two or more metal pins in a
plastic base attached to the mainboard. A plastic jumper ‘cap’ with
a metal plate inside fits over two pins to create an electrical
contact between them. The contact establishes a hardware settings
such as installing the CPU, selecting cache size.
Note: When you open a jumper, leave the plastic Jumper cap attached to
one of Ihe pins so you don’t lose it,
jumper cap 3-pin jumper 2-pin jumper
Graphle rumbo!
To rapidly give user a effective and direct way to set jumpers for
your system, there are some diagrams used in the following chap-
ters. All kind of jumper setting modes are simplified as the
following relevant graphic symbols:

Jumper Configuration
The main board offers a set of jumper settings to facilitate clock
frequency adjustment and some important selections.
System Clock Selection
In this P61440FX Commander main board, there are two selections
of SC (System Clock). User has to set a group of jumpers as the
following illustration to determine which System Clock used.

processor CPUs, On this board there is a VRM transforms 5V power
supply into 2.1V~ 3.5V CPU core voltage. A set of Jumpers,

installed in the computer. There are 45 predefined types and 4 user
definable types are used for Enhanced IDE BIOS, Type 1 to Type
45 are predefined. Type "User" is user-definable. If your hard disk
drive type is not matched with drive table or listed in it, you can
use Type "User" to define your own drive type manually.
If you select Type "Auto", that means the system can autodetect your
hard disk when boot up. If you select Type "User", related informa-
tion is asked to be entered to the following items. Enter the

When you select this function, the following message will appear at
the center of the screen to assist you in creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD
Type the password, up to eight characters, and press <Enter>, The
password typed now will clear any previously entered password
from CMOS memory. You will be asked to confirm the password.
Type the password again and press <Enter>, You may also press
<Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a password.
To disable password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to
enter password. A message will confirm the password being dis-
abled. Once the password is disabled, the system will boot and you
can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED
If you select "System" at "Security Option" of "BIOS Features Setup"
Menu, you will be prompted for the password every time the system
is rebooted or any time you try to enter CMOS Setup”.
If you select "Setup" at "Security Option” of "BIOS Features Setup"

Supervisor Password has higher priority than User Password, You can
use Supervisor Password when booting system or entering "CMOS

AWARD BIOS Description
When HDD type is in "user" type, the "MODE" option will be
opened for user to select their own HDD mode.
2. HDD Mode:
The Award BIOS supports 3 HDD modes: NORMAL, LBA and LARGE,
and Auto detect
NORMAL
Generic access mode in which neither the BIOS nor the IDE con-
troller will make any transformation during accessing. The
maximum number of cylinders, heads and sectors for NORMAL
mode are 1024, 16 and 63.
If user set his HDD to NORMAL mode, the maximum accessible
HDD size will be 528 Megabytes even though its physical size may
be greater than that.
LBA (Logical Biock Addressing) mode
A new HDD accessing method to overcome the 528 Megabyte
botileneck. The number of cylinders, heads and sectors shown in
setup may not be the number physically contained in the HDD.
During HDD accessing, the IDE controller will transform the logical
address described by sector, head and cylinder number into its own
physical address inside the HDD. The maximum HDD size sup-
ported by LBA mode is 8.4 Gegabytes.
LARGE mode
Some IDE HDDs contain more than 1024 cylinder without LBA
support (in some cases, user do not want LBA), The Award BIOS
provides another alternative to support these kinds of HDD.
BIOS tricks DOS (or other OS) that the number of cylinders is less
than 1024 by dividing it by 2. At the same time, the number of heads
is multiplied by 2. A reverse transformation process will be made
inside INT13h in order to access the right HDD address.
Auto detect
If using Auto detect, the BIOS will auto detect IDE hard disk mode
and set it to one kind of HDD modes.
Chapter 4
3, Remark
To support LBA or LARGE mode of HDDs, there must be some
software involved, All these software are located in the Award
HDD Service Routine (INT 13h}. It may be failed to access a HDD
with LBA (LARGE) mode selected if you are running under a
Operating System which replaces the whole INT 13h.
