3 BIOS
 3.1 Entering The BIOS
The NBOX-5020 BIOS ROM has a built-in Setup program that allows users to modify
basic system configuration. This information is stored in battery-backed RAM so that
it retains Setup information even if the system power is turned off.
The system BIOS manages and executes variety of hardware related functions
including:
System date and time
Hardware execution sequence
Power management functions
Allocation of system resources
Enter the BIOS
To enter the BIOS (Basic Input / Output System) utility, follow these steps:
Step1.
