Introduction
System Overview
This board is designed with Intel® 845PE chipset. The Intel® 845PE chipset
includes MCH(FW82845PE), ICH4(FW82801DB) and FWH three chips. The
Intel® 845PE chipset is designed for Intel’s FC-PGA2 socket 478 package
architecture and support the 4X capability of the AGP 2.0 Interface Specification.
A new chipset component interconnect, the hub interface, is designed into the
Intel® 845PE chipset to provide more efficient communication between chipset
components.
Support of AGP 4X, 266/333MHz DDR SDRAM and the hub interface provides a
balanced system architecture for the Pentium® 4 in the Socket 478 architecture
processor minimizing bottlenecks and increasing system performance. By
increasing memory bandwidth to 2.128GB/s through the use of AGP 4X, the
Intel® 845PE chipset will deliver the data throughput necessary to take advantage
of the high performance provided by the powerful Pentium® 4 in the Socket 478
architecture processor.
The Intel® 845PE chipset architecture removes the requirement for the ISA
expansion bus that was traditionally integrated into the I/O subsystem of Intel
chipsets. This removes many of the conflicts experienced when installing
hardware and drivers into legacy ISA systems. The elimination of ISA will provide
true plug-and play for the Intel® 845PE platform.
Intel® 845PE chipset contains three core components: the Memory Controller
Hub (MCH), the I/O Controller Hub (ICH4) and the Firmware Hub (FWH). The
MCH integrates the data transfer rate of 400/533MHz, Pentium® 4 processor bus
controller, AGP 2.0 controller, 266/333MHz DDR SDRAM controller and a highspeed hub interface for communication with the ICH4. The ICH4 integrates an
UltraATA/66/100 controller, USB host controller, LPC interface controller, FWH
interface controller, PCI interface controller, and a hub interface for communication with the MCH. The Intel® 845PE chipset will provide the data buffering and
interface arbitration required to ensure that system interfaces operate efficiently
and provide the system bandwidth necessary to obtain peak performance the
Pentium® 4 in the Socket 478 architecture.

Introduction
Chipset Components
The Intel® 845PE chipset consists of the Memory Controller Hub (MCH), the I/O
Controller Hub (ICH4) and the Firmware Hub (FWH).
! Memory Controller Hub (MCH)
The MCH provides the interconnect between the DDR SDRAM and the system
logic. It integrates:
- Support for single processor with a data transfer rate of 400/533MHz.
- 200/266/333MHz DDR SDRAM interface supporting 2GB of DDR SDRAM.
- 4X 1.5V AGP interface (Only support 1.5V on AGP interface).
- Downstream hub link for access to the ICH4.
! I/O Controller Hub (ICH4)
The I/O controller Hub provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of
the system. Additionally, it integrates may I/O functions. The ICH4
integrates:
- Upstream hub link for access to the MCH
- 2 Channel Ultra ATA/33/66/100 Bus Master IDE controller
- USB controller
- SMBus controller
- FWH interface
- LPC interface
- PCI 2.2 interface
- Integrated System Management Controller
- Integrated LAN Controller
! Firmware Hub (FWH)
The FWH component is a key element to enabling a new security and manageability infrastructure for the PC platform. The device operates under the FWH
interface and protocol. The hardware features of this device include a unique a
Random Number Generator (RNG), register-based locking, and hardwarebased locking.

Introduction
Intel Pentium 4 processors
Formally known as the Willamette, the PentiumTM 4 is the next PEneration IA-32
processor from Intel. This next generation design is based upon a new microarchitecture that brings higher clock speeds and performance than previous
processors could deliver. Among other advanced features the Pentium 4 offers
Streaming SIMD extensions 2, Advanced Dynamic Execution, Hyper Pipelined
Technology, and a data transfer rate of 400/533MHz system bus.
Streaming SIMD Extensions 2
Building upon the foundations of core features of their previous line of processors the Pentium 4, this new version introduces Streaming SIMD Extensions 2
technology commonly referred to as SSE2. But what does this mean? SIMD stands
for Single Instruction Multiple Data. Usually, processors process one data
element in one instruction, called Single Instruction Single Data, or SISD. In
contrast, with Single Instruction Single Data (SISD), SIMD has the ability to
process more than one piece of data element during one instruction.
This technology is useful for 3D graphics applications that handle considerable
amounts of floating-point numbers. With SIMD applications such as 3D graphics
will be able to processor more data per instruction when equates to better
performance. This technology adds 144 new instructions to the CPU core that can
be used in a wide variety of applications. Software programmers can for example,
take advantage of these new instructions and write more optimized code that take
advantage of newer SIMD double-precision floating-point, integer, and cache
ability instructions. In theory this will enable better next generation services such
as Interactive Digital TV to be produced.
Advanced Dynamic Execution
Advanced Dynamic Execution describes the improved implementation and
abilities over the older P6 processor line’s out-of-order decoupled super scalar
execution. Dynamic execution allows instructions to the processor to be executed
without the need to do so in order. The ability to do this can add a significant
performance increase versus ordered execution.
Page 1-4
Introduction
Hyper Pipelined Technology & 400/533MHz System Bus
Hyper Pipelined Technology doubles the pipeline depth the Pentium 4 delivers to
20 stages. This significantly increases the performance and frequency capabilities.
Pentium 4 also introduces a 400/533MHz system bus as opposed to the 100 and
133MHz bus seen in previous Pentium III processors. This allows 3.2Gbytes per
second of throughput while the Pentium III had a limited 1.06Gbyte/s throughput.
Willamette will reportedly be introduced in the 0.18-micron using aluminum.
Hyper-Threading Technology
Hyper-Threading Technology is a new features in the IA-32 Intel Architecture that
provides a performance boost for future Intel-32 processors based on the Intel
NetBurstTM micro architecture. This technology enables a single processor to run
two separate threads simultaneously, this arrangement looks like two processors.
Hyper-Threading Technology makes a single physical processor appear as multiple
logical processors, there is one copy of the architecture state for each logical
processor, and the logical processor share a single set of physical execution
resources. From a software or architecture perspective, this means operating
systems and user programs can schedule processors or threads to logical processors as they would on conventional physical processors in a multi-processor
system. From a micro architecture perspective , this means that instructions form
logical processors will persist and execute simultaneously on shared execution
resources.

Introduction
Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP or A.G.P.)
Typically, 3D graphics rendering requires a tremendous amount of memory, and
demands ever increasing throughput speed as well. As 3D products for the
personal computer become more and more popular, these demands will only
increase. This will cause a rise in costs for both end users and manufacturers.
Lowering these costs as well as improving performance is the primary motivation
behind AGP. By providing a massive increase in the bandwidth available between
the video card and the processor, it will assist in relieving some of these pressures
for quite sometime.
The board provides the AGP 2.0 interface. The AGP Interface Specification
revision 2.0 enhances the functionality of the original AGP Interface Specification (revision 1.0) by allowing 4X data transfers (4 data samples per clock) and
1.5 volt (power supply) operation. The AGP 2.0 interface, along with SDRAM
memory technology, allows graphics controllers to access main memory at over
1GB/s. In order to match the 4X AGP Card. The board used the Universal AGP
connector. (1.5 volt AGP Card supports only).
Ultra ATA/66/100
The ICH4 provides two channel Ultra ATA/66/100 Bus Master IDE controllers, that
support Ultra ATA/66/100 protocols, perfect for such demanding applications as
real-time video, multimedia, and high performance operating system. A new IDE
cable is required for Ultra ATA/66/100. This cable is an 80 conductor cable;
however the connectors are, of course, backwards compatible with ATA/33.
Hardware Monitoring
Hardware monitoring allows you to monitor various aspects of your systems
operations and status. The features include CPU temperature, voltage and RPM of
fan.

Introduction
Mainboard Form-Factor
The board is designed with ATX form factor - the latest industry standard of
chassis. The ATX form factor is essentially a Baby-AT baseboard rotated 90
degrees within the chassis enclosure and a new mounting configuration for the
power supply. With these changes the processor is relocated away from the
expansion slots, allowing them all to hold full length add-in cards. ATX defines
a double height aperture to the rear of the chassis which can be used to host a
wide range of onboard I/O. Only the size and position of this aperture is
defined, allowing PC manufacturers to add new I/O features (e.g.; TV input, TV
output, joystick, modem, LAN, audio, etc.) to systems. This will help systems
integrators differentiate their products in the marketplace, and better meet your
needs.
•
•
•
By integrating more I/O down onto the board and better positioning the
hard drive and floppy connectors material cost of cables and add-in cards is
reduced.
By reducing the number of cables and components in the system, manufacturing time and inventory holding costs are reduced and reliability will
increase.
By using an optimized power supply, it's possible to reduce cooling costs
and lower acoustical noise. An ATX power supply, which has a sidemounted fan, allows direct cooling of the processor and add-in cards making
a secondary fan or active heatsink unnecessary in most system applications.

Power-On/Off (Remote)
The board has a single 20-pin and 4-pin connector for ATX or ATX12V power
supplies (Figure 4). For ATX or ATX12V power supplies that support the Remote
On/Off feature, this should be connected to the mainboard front panel PW_ON
connector for the computer power On/Off button.
The board has been designed with “Soft Off" function. You can turn off the system
two ways: pressing the front panel power On/Off button, using the "Soft Off"
function (incorporated in the mainboard’s onboard circuit controller) that can be
controlled by an operating system such as Windows®ME/2000/98/95.
Note: For maintaining the DDR SDRAM power during STR (ACPI S3) function, it is
strongly recommend to use ATX or ATX12V power supplies that have a +5VSB
current of (>=) 1A (1000mA). Please check the 5VSB’s specification that has been
printed on the ATX or ATX12V power supply’s outer case.
Note: The board requires a minimum of 250 Watt ATX or ATX 12V power supply to
operate. Your system configuration (amount of memory, add-in cards, peripherals,
etc.) may exceed the minimum power requirement but to ensure that adequate
power is provided, use a 300 Watt (or greater) ATX or ATX 12V power supply.

Modem Ring Power ON Function
The I/O chipset provides the two serial ports with the External Modem Ring-in
Power ON function. Once you connect an external modem to COM1 or COM2,
the mainboard enables you to turn on the system through remote and host dial-up
control.
Keyboard Power ON Function
The mainboard features a keyboard power on function that enables you to turn on
the power supply using a keypress. Follow these instructions to enable the Keyboard Power ON function .
Step :
Use the Keyboard Power ON function (KBPO) to turn on the system by using
a key press, password, or hot key combination etc. as set in the BIOS Power
Management Setup menu (refer to the BIOS Power Management Setup for
details). The BIOS default setting is keyboard Hot key (<Ctrl> + <F1>). To
power off the system, use the soft-OFF function under Windows 2000/98/
95 (refer to Windows online help).
NOTES:
•

3-7 845PE Platform AGP Card 3.3V Protection
The Intel® 845PE chipset supports 1.5 volt AGP graphics cards only. Using a 3.3
volt AGP card in an Intel® 845PE chipset-based board might damage the chipset
on an 845PE-equipped mainboard. However, this mainboard features a protection function that prevents the system from powering on when a 3.3V AGP
card is inadvertently inserted into the AGP slot.
If this happens, we recommend you to follow these steps:
Step 1: Remove the 3.3V AGP card from the AGP slot.
Step 2: Unplug the ATX/ATX12V power cable.
Step 3: Insert a 1.5V AGP card into the AGP slot.
Step 4: Wait for 5 ~ 7 seconds and then plug in the ATX/ATX12V power
cord again (or turn on the ATX/ATX12V power switch) to turn on
your system.

AWARD BIOS SETUP
Main Menu
Award’s ROM BIOS provides a built-in Setup program which allows user to modify
the basic system configuration and hardware parameters. The modified data is
stored in a battery-backed CMOS, so that data will be retained even when the
power is turned off. In general, the information saved in the CMOS RAM will stay
unchanged unless there is a configuration change in the system, such as hard drive
replacement or a device is added.
It is possible for the CMOS battery to fail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens
you will need install a new CMOS battery and reconfigure your BIOS settings.

4-10 Supervisor/User Password Setting
These items are used to install a password. A Supervisor password takes precedence over a User password, and the Supervisor limits the activities of a User.
You can set either a supervisor or user password, or both of them:
Supervisor password: authorized to enter and change the options of the setup
menus.
User password:
authorized to enter, but not authorized to change the
options of the setup menus.
When you select Set User/Supervisor Password, the following message appears
prompting you to type a password:
ENTER PASSWORD:
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The password
typed now clears any previously entered password from CMOS memory. You will be
prompted to confirm the password. Type the password and press <Enter>. You may
also press <Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a password.
To disable a password, press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the
password. A message will confirm the password is disabled:
PASSWORD DISABLED.
Once the password is disabled, the system will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time
you try to enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any
part of your system configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request
a password every time your system is rebooted. This prevents unauthorized use of
your computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup
menu “Security” option. If the Security option is set to “System”, the password
will be required both at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”, prompting
only occurs when trying to enter Setup.

How to Reinstall Windows in 2 Minutes
This chapter guides you how to setup your computer properly and, if
necessary, reinstall Windows in 2 minutes. Ghost provides different
methods to complete this task. The following two sections explain how to
create an emergency Recover Floppy and Recover CD:
Emergency Recover Floppy
Divide a hard disk into two partitions. The first partition is to store the
operating system and application programs. The second partition is to back
up the operating system and data. The size of the partition can be
determined according to the backup requirements. For example, the
Windows operating system needs 200MB of hard disk space, Plus
complete Office programs require 360MB. The remaining space can be
used to store data.
After installing Windows, use Ghost to create a backup area for the system
and to store the file (Image file) in drive D. The file is named Original.gho.
Then, create a recover floppy disk containing:
!" Bootable files (Command.com, Io.sys, and MSDOS.SYS )
!"Config.sys (configuration setup file)
!"Autoexec.bat (auto-execution batch file)
!"Ghost.exe (Ghost execution file)
There are two ways to create the content of the recover floppy for
restoring:
(1) To load Windows automatically after booting, store the Autoexec.
bat file with a command line:
Ghost.exe clone, mode=pload, src=d:\original.gho:2,dst=1:1 -fx -sure -rb
Command Description: Runs the restore function automatically with
the Image File. Stored in drive D. After execution, it will exit Ghost
and boots the system.
Refer to the [Introducing Ghosts Functions] for details.
D-10
Appendix
(2) After booting, the screen displays the Menu. Select Backup or Restore:
Since the user may install other applications in the future, he/she may
alter Autoexec.bat file to back up or restore the user-defined Image
file as follows:
#
Backup
Back up Windows and application programs as a file (Recent.
gho). Command is:
Ghost –clone,mode=pdump,src=1:1,dst=d:\Recent.gho -fx sure -rb
#
Restore
Restore types include [General Windows] and [Windows and
Application Programs]. If you select [General Windows],
the system is restored to the general Windows operation
condition. The command is:
Ghost.exe -clone,mode=pload,src=d:\Original.gho,dst=1:1 -fx
-sure -rb
If you select [Windows and Application Programs], the latest
backup file (Recent.gho) is restored, skipping the installation
and setup of application programs.
For description of related parameters, refer to [Introducing Ghosts
Functions].
For more information about menu design, refer to Config.sys and
Autoexec.bat under /Menu in the CD. You can also create a backup CD
containing Ghost.exe and these two files.
D-11
Appendix
Recover CD
The following is a simple guide to create a recover CD:
1. First, create a recover floppy disk contains the following with any
copy program such as “Easy CD Create” (Note 2) :
Bootable files (Command.com and Io.sys and MSDOS.SYS)
Config.sys (Configuration setup file)
Autoexec.bat (Auto-execution batch file)
Mscdex.exe (CD-Rom execution file)
Ghost.exe (Ghost execution file)
Oakcdrom.sys (ATAPI CD-ROM compatible driver)
The content of Config.sys is:
DEVICE=Oakcdrom.sys /d:idecd001
The content of Autoexec.bat includes:
MSCDEX.EXE /D:IDECD001 /L:Z
Ghost.exe clone,mode=load,src=z:\original.gho,dst=1 -sure -rb
2. Write the backup image file (original.gho) of the entire hard disk or
partition into the recover CD. Use the Recover CD to boot up the
system and restore the backup files automatically.
For description of related parameters, refer to [Introducing Ghosts
Functions].
Note: For more details about copy the creation program and method to create a
recover CD, please refer to the releated software and its associated
operating manual.
Note: Ghost may be executed in interactive or in batch mode. Most of the Ghost
switches are used to assist in batch mode operation. To list switches, type
ghost.exe -h.
