C One Key Recovery
Page 96
NANO-QM57A EPIC SBC
C.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.
C.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.

E Watchdog Timer
Page 125
NANO-QM57A EPIC SBC
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. IEI support is
contacted or the IEI website visited for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMI or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
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. While 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 126

NOTE:
When exiting a program it is necessary to disable the Watchdog Timer,
otherwise the system resets.
