Product Description
1.4.1
Memory Configurations
th
4 generation Intel Core processors support the following types of memory
organization:
•
•
•
Dual channel (Interleaved) mode. This mode offers the highest throughput for
real world applications. Dual channel mode is enabled when the installed memory
capacities of both DIMM channels are equal. Technology and device width can vary
from one channel to the other but the installed memory capacity for each channel
must be equal. If different speed DIMMs are used between channels, the slowest
memory timing will be used.
Single channel (Asymmetric) mode. This mode is equivalent to single channel
bandwidth operation for real world applications. This mode is used when only a
single DIMM is installed or the memory capacities are unequal. Technology and
device width can vary from one channel to the other. If different speed DIMMs are
used between channels, the slowest memory timing will be used.
Flex mode. This mode provides the most flexible performance characteristics.
The bottommost DRAM memory (the memory that is lowest within the system
memory map) is mapped to dual channel operation; the topmost DRAM memory
(the memory that is nearest to the 8 GB address space limit), if any, is mapped to
single channel operation. Flex mode results in multiple zones of dual and single
channel operation across the whole of DRAM memory. To use flex mode, it is
necessary to populate both channels.

Intel® Active Management Technology
(Intel® AMT) 9.0
Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) 9.0 offers IT organizations tamperresistant and persistent management capabilities. Specifically, Intel AMT is a
hardware-based solution that uses out of band communication to manage access to
client systems in addition to offering encrypted and persistent asset management and
remote diagnostics and/or recovery capabilities for networked platforms. With Intel
AMT, IT organizations can easily get accurate platform information, and can perform
remote updating, diagnostics, debugging and repair of a system, regardless of the
state of the operating system or the power state of the system.
The Intel Active Management Technology subsystem consists of:
•
•
•
Intel ME microcontroller embedded in the Intel Q67 PCH
Intel I217LM Gigabit (10/100/1000 Mb/s) Ethernet LAN controller
BIOS/SPI Flash (96 Mb/s)
NOTE
Software with AMT capability is required to take advantage of Intel AMT platform
management capabilities.
1.10.5.1.1
Intel AMT Features
The key features of Intel AMT include:
•
Secure Out of Band (OOB) system management that allows remote management
of PCs regardless of system power or operating system state.
 SSL 3.1/TLS encryption
 HTTP authentication
 TCP/IP
 HTTP web GUI
 XML/SOAP API
 Web Services for Management (WS-MAN) protocol support

manual inventory tracking, which also reduces asset accounting costs.
 E-Asset Tag
•
•
 HW/SW inventory
System Defense 2. In addition to the in-bound and out-bound packet filtering of
the previous generation, System Defense 2 is an Intel AMT feature that uses
advanced heuristics to help protect against the propagation of worms through the
use of preset packet filters. The number of new connections made to a specific
port or IP address are counted over a specific time window. If a preset threshold is
exceeded, it will alert the Management Console and suspend the client’s network
activity until the system can be remediated.
Remote Configuration (RCFG) minimizes the cost to deploy Intel AMT by
eliminating the need for IT personnel to touch each client system prior to
configuration. Remote Configuration consists of a single OEM BIOS/Firmware
image that provides the Intel AMT client with information to authenticate
connections and allows it to remotely perform a secure setup procedure. IT
departments must acquire an appropriate Intel AMT-trusted certificate as well as
use a remote management application that supports Remote Configuration.
Remote Configuration also requires the use of automatic IP addressing (DHCP).

System States and Power States
Under ACPI, the operating system directs all system and device power state
transitions. The operating system puts devices in and out of low-power states based
on user preferences and knowledge of how devices are being used by applications.
Devices that are not being used can be turned off. The operating system uses
information from applications and user settings to put the system as a whole into a
low-power state.
Table 10 lists the power states supported by the board along with the associated
system power targets. See the ACPI specification for a complete description of the
various system and power states.

Screen) or the keyboard power button.
3. Wake on LAN is only supported from sleep (S3) or hibernate (S4) in Windows 8.
NOTE
The use of these wake-up events from an ACPI state requires an operating system
that provides full ACPI support. In addition, software, drivers, and peripherals must
fully support ACPI wake events.
1.12.2
Hardware Support
CAUTION
Ensure that the power supply provides adequate +5 V standby current if LAN wake
capabilities and Instantly Available PC technology features are used. Failure to do so
can damage the power supply. The total amount of standby current required depends
on the wake devices supported and manufacturing options.
The board provides several power management hardware features, including:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Power connector
Fan headers
LAN wake capabilities
Instantly Available PC technology

Intel Desktop Board DQ87PG Technical Product Specification
LAN wake capabilities and Instantly Available PC technology require power from the
+5 V standby line.
NOTE
The use of Wake from USB from an ACPI state requires an operating system that
provides full ACPI support.
1.12.2.1
Power Connector
ATX12V-compliant power supplies can turn off the system power through system
control. When an ACPI-enabled system receives the correct command, the power
supply removes all non-standby voltages.
When resuming from an AC power failure, the computer returns to the power state it
was in before power was interrupted (on or off). The computer’s response can be set
using the Last Power State feature in the BIOS Setup program’s Boot menu.

•
•
•
•
•
•

The fans are on when the board is in the S0 state
The fans are off when the board is off or in the S3, S4, or S5 state
Each fan header is wired to a fan tachometer input of the hardware monitoring and
fan control ASIC
All fan headers support closed-loop fan control that can adjust the fan speed or
switch the fan on or off as needed
All fan headers have a +12 V DC connection
The fan headers are controlled by Pulse Width Modulation

LAN Wake Capabilities
CAUTION
For LAN wake capabilities, the +5 V standby line for the power supply must be capable
of providing adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate standby
current when implementing LAN wake capabilities can damage the power supply.
LAN wake capabilities enable remote wake-up of the computer through a network.
The LAN subsystem PCI bus network adapter monitors network traffic at the Media
Independent Interface. Upon detecting a Magic Packet* frame, the LAN subsystem
asserts a wake-up signal that powers up the computer. Depending on the LAN
implementation, the board supports LAN wake capabilities with ACPI in the following
ways:
•
•
•
•
The PCI Express WAKE# signal
By Ping
Magic Packet
The onboard LAN subsystem
1.12.2.4
Instantly Available PC Technology
CAUTION
For Instantly Available PC technology, the +5 V standby line for the power supply must
be capable of providing adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate
standby current when implementing Instantly Available PC technology can damage the
power supply.
Instantly Available PC technology enables the board to enter the ACPI S3 (Suspend-toRAM) sleep-state. While in the S3 sleep-state, the computer will appear to be off (the
power supply is off, and the front panel LED is amber if dual colored, or off if single
colored.) When signaled by a wake-up device or event, the system quickly returns to
its last known wake state. Table 11 on page 41 lists the devices and events that can
wake the computer from the S3 state.
The board supports the PCI Bus Power Management Interface Specification. Add-in
boards that also support this specification can participate in power management and
can be used to wake the computer.
The use of Instantly Available PC technology requires operating system support and
PCI Express add-in cards and drivers.
43
Intel Desktop Board DQ87PG Technical Product Specification
1.12.2.5
Wake from USB
USB bus activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S3 state.
NOTE
Wake from USB requires the use of a USB peripheral that supports Wake from USB.
1.12.2.6
PME# Signal Wake-up Support
When the PME# signal on the Conventional PCI bus is asserted, the computer wakes
from an ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state (with Wake on PME enabled in the BIOS).
1.12.2.7
WAKE# Signal Wake-up Support
When the WAKE# signal on the PCI Express bus is asserted, the computer wakes from
an ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state.
1.12.2.8
Wake from Serial Port
Serial port activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S3 state.
1.12.2.9
Wake from PS/2 Devices
PS/2 keyboard activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state.
However, when the computer is in an ACPI S4 or S5 state, the only PS/2 activity that
will wake the computer is the Alt + Print Screen or the Power Key available only on
some keyboards.
1.12.2.10 Wake from S5
When the RTC Date and Time is set in the BIOS, the computer will automatically wake
from an ACPI S5 state.
1.12.2.11 Power Supervisor
The Power Supervisor actively monitors the input voltages from the power supply and
protects the board and any attached peripherals from electrical overstress and possible
physical damage. The Power Supervisor will activate if it detects the power supply
voltage rails have deviated outside the current ATX power supply specification and safe
operating levels.
If the Power Supervisor detects an out of spec voltage, the following will happen:
1. The board will be powered down immediately to protect circuits from electrical
overstress and possible physical damage.
2. A red warning LED (see Figure 1) on the board will activate as a visual cue.
44
Product Description
3. During the next power on, a message will be displayed on the screen to notify the
user that the power supply voltage rails have deviated outside the current ATX
power supply specification and safe operating levels.
4. A message will be added to the BIOS Event Log for each event that takes place
until the BIOS Event Log is cleared.
1.12.2.12 Enhanced Standby Power LED
The enhanced standby power LED is lit when the board has +5 V standby voltage
applied to it. It also blinks as soon as the BIOS has started executing code, once the
power button has been pressed and before video has been initialized. Figure 8 shows
the location of the LED.
CAUTION
If AC power has been switched off and the standby power indicator is still lit,
disconnect the power cord before installing or removing any devices connected to the
board. Failure to do so could damage the board and any attached devices.

Memory Resources
2.1.1
Addressable Memory
The board utilizes 32 GB of addressable system memory. Typically the address space
that is allocated for Conventional PCI bus add-in cards, PCI Express configuration
space, BIOS (SPI Flash device), and chipset overhead resides above the top of DRAM
(total system memory). On a system that has 32 GB of system memory installed, it is
not possible to use all of the installed memory due to system address space being
allocated for other system critical functions. These functions include the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
BIOS/SPI Flash device (96 Mb)
Local APIC (19 MB)
Direct Media Interface (40 MB)
PCI Express configuration space (256 MB)
PCH base address registers PCI Express ports (up to 256 MB)
Memory-mapped I/O that is dynamically allocated for Conventional PCI and PCI
Express add-in cards (256 MB)
The board provides the capability to reclaim the physical memory overlapped by the
memory mapped I/O logical address space. The board remaps physical memory from
the top of usable DRAM boundary to the 4 GB boundary to an equivalent sized logical
address range located just above the 4 GB boundary. All installed system memory can
be used when there is no overlap of system addresses.

Connectors and Headers
CAUTION
Only the following connectors and headers have overcurrent protection: back panel
and front panel USB, and PS/2.
The other internal connectors and headers are not overcurrent protected and should
connect only to devices inside the computer’s chassis, such as fans and internal
peripherals. Do not use these connectors or headers to power devices external to the
computer’s chassis. A fault in the load presented by the external devices could cause
damage to the computer, the power cable, and the external devices themselves.
Furthermore, improper connection of USB header single wire connectors may
eventually overload the overcurrent protection and cause damage to the board.
This section describes the board’s connectors. The connectors can be divided into
these groups:

Mechanical Considerations
Form Factor
The board is designed to fit into an ATX-form-factor chassis. Figure 16 illustrates the
mechanical form factor for the board. Dimensions are given in inches [millimeters].
The outer dimensions are 9.60 inches by 9.60 inches [243.84 millimeters by
243.84 millimeters]. Location of the I/O connectors and mounting holes are in
compliance with the ATX specification.

Power Supply Considerations
CAUTION
The +5 V standby line from the power supply must be capable of providing adequate
+5 V standby current. Failure to do so can damage the power supply. The total
amount of standby current required depends on the wake devices supported and
manufacturing options.
Additional power required will depend on configurations chosen by the integrator.
Due to improvements in 4th generation Intel Core processor power efficiency, the
requirements for the processor’s power supply have changed. More specifically, the
latest Power Supply Design Guide rev 1.3 has indicated a minimum current of 0.05A
on +12 V2DC, and recommends 0A. This is to prevent PSU protection triggering during
minimum loading.
Intel recommends that system integrators and builders check the latest list of tested
PSUs for ones capable of supporting the 4th generation Intel Core processor. This list
may be found at: http://www.intel.com/go/powersupplies/. From the filters at the top
right of the page, set 12V2 Min Load 0A to “Yes” to see which PSUs have been found
to support the processor’s new power requirements.
The power supply must comply with the indicated parameters of the ATX form factor
specification.

Add-in Board Considerations
The board is designed to provide 2 A (average) of current for each add-in board from
the +5 V rail. The total +5 V current draw for add-in boards for a fully loaded board
(all three expansion slots filled) must not exceed the system’s power supply +5 V
maximum current or 14 A in total.

Technical Reference
2.7
Thermal Considerations
CAUTION
A chassis with a maximum internal ambient temperature of 38 oC at the processor fan
inlet is a requirement. Use a processor heat sink that provides omni-directional airflow
to maintain required airflow across the processor voltage regulator area.
CAUTION
Failure to ensure appropriate airflow may result in reduced performance of both the
processor and/or voltage regulator or, in some instances, damage to the board. For a
list of chassis that have been tested with Intel desktop boards please refer to the
following website:
http://www3.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/tech_reference/53211.htm
All responsibility for determining the adequacy of any thermal or system design
remains solely with the reader. Intel makes no warranties or representations that
merely following the instructions presented in this document will result in a system
with adequate thermal performance.
CAUTION
Ensure that the ambient temperature does not exceed the board’s maximum operating
temperature. Failure to do so could cause components to exceed their maximum case
temperature and malfunction. For information about the maximum operating
temperature, see the environmental specifications in Section 2.9.
CAUTION
Ensure that proper airflow is maintained in the processor voltage regulator circuit.
Failure to do so may result in damage to the voltage regulator circuit. The processor
voltage regulator area (shown in Figure 17) can reach a temperature of up to 120 oC in
an open chassis.

To ensure functionality and reliability, the component is specified for proper operation
when Case Temperature is maintained at or below the maximum temperature listed in
Table 34. This is a requirement for sustained power dissipation equal to Thermal
Design Power (TDP is specified as the maximum sustainable power to be dissipated by
the components). When the component is dissipating less than TDP, the case
temperature should be below the Maximum Case Temperature. The surface
temperature at the geometric center of the component corresponds to Case
Temperature.
It is important to note that the temperature measurement in the system BIOS is a
value reported by embedded thermal sensors in the components and does not directly
correspond to the Maximum Case Temperature. The upper operating limit when
monitoring this thermal sensor is Tcontrol.

Overview of BIOS Features
3.1
Introduction
The board uses an Intel Visual BIOS that is stored in the Serial Peripheral Interface
Flash Memory (SPI Flash) and can be updated using a disk-based program. The SPI
Flash contains the Visual BIOS Setup program, POST, the PCI auto-configuration
utility, LAN EEPROM information, and Plug and Play support.
The BIOS displays a message during POST identifying the type of BIOS and a revision
code. The initial production BIOSs are identified as PGQ8710H.86A.
When the BIOS Setup configuration jumper is set to configure mode and the computer
is powered-up, the BIOS compares the CPU version and the microcode version in the
BIOS and reports if the two match.
The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the
computer. The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the
Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot
begins.

Overview of BIOS Features
3.3
3.3.1
Resource Configuration
PCI Express Autoconfiguration
The BIOS can automatically configure PCI Express devices. PCI Express devices may
be onboard or add-in cards. Autoconfiguration lets a user insert or remove PCI
Express cards without having to configure the system. When a user turns on the
system after adding a PCI Express card, the BIOS automatically configures interrupts,
the I/O space, and other system resources. Any interrupts set to Available in Setup
are considered to be available for use by the add-in card.
3.4
System Management BIOS (SMBIOS)
SMBIOS is a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compliant method for managing
computers in a managed network.
The main component of SMBIOS is the Management Information Format (MIF)
database, which contains information about the computing system and its
components. Using SMBIOS, a system administrator can obtain the system types,
capabilities, operational status, and installation dates for system components. The
MIF database defines the data and provides the method for accessing this information.
The BIOS enables applications such as third-party management software to use
SMBIOS. The BIOS stores and reports the following SMBIOS information:
•
•
•
•
BIOS data, such as the BIOS revision level
Fixed-system data, such as peripherals, serial numbers, and asset tags
Resource data, such as memory size, cache size, and processor speed
Dynamic data, such as event detection and error logging
Non-Plug and Play operating systems require an additional interface for obtaining the
SMBIOS information. The BIOS supports an SMBIOS table interface for such operating
systems. Using this support, an SMBIOS service-level application running on a
non-Plug and Play operating system can obtain the SMBIOS information. Additional
board information can be found in the BIOS under the Additional Information header
under the Main BIOS page.
3.5
Legacy USB Support
Legacy USB support enables USB devices to be used even when the operating
system’s USB drivers are not yet available. Legacy USB support is used to access the
BIOS Setup program, and to install an operating system that supports USB. By
default, Legacy USB support is set to Enabled.
Legacy USB support operates as follows:
1. When you apply power to the computer, legacy support is disabled.
2. POST begins.
3. Legacy USB support is enabled by the BIOS allowing you to use a USB keyboard to
enter and configure the BIOS Setup program and the maintenance menu.
4. POST completes.
71
Intel Desktop Board DQ87PG Technical Product Specification
5. The operating system loads. While the operating system is loading, USB
keyboards and mice are recognized and may be used to configure the operating
system. (Keyboards and mice are not recognized during this period if Legacy USB
support was set to Disabled in the BIOS Setup program.)
6. After the operating system loads the USB drivers, all legacy and non-legacy USB
devices are recognized by the operating system, and Legacy USB support from the
BIOS is no longer used.
7. Additional USB legacy feature options can be access by using Intel® Integrator
Toolkit version 5.
To install an operating system that supports USB, verify that Legacy USB support in
the BIOS Setup program is set to Enabled and follow the operating system’s
installation instructions.
3.6
BIOS Updates
The BIOS can be updated using either of the following utilities, which are available on
the Intel World Wide Web site (see Section 1.2 on page 16):
•
•
•
•
Intel® Express BIOS Update utility, which enables automated updating while in the
Windows environment. Using this utility, the BIOS can be updated from a file on a
hard disk, a USB drive (a flash drive or a USB hard drive), or a CD-ROM, or from
the file location on the Web.
Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility, which requires booting from DOS. Using this
utility, the BIOS can be updated from a file on a hard disk, a USB drive (a flash
drive or a USB hard drive), or a CD-ROM.
Intel® F7 switch allows a user to select where the BIOS .bio file is located and
perform the update from that location/device. Similar to performing a BIOS
Recovery without removing the BIOS configuration jumper.
Intel Visual BIOS Update Utility allows the user to select the BIOS .bio file from the
internet, USB device, hard disk drive, or other media.
All utilities verify that the updated BIOS matches the target system to prevent
accidentally installing an incompatible BIOS.
NOTE
Review the instructions distributed with the upgrade utility before attempting a BIOS
update.

BIOS Recovery
It is unlikely that anything will interrupt a BIOS update; however, if an interruption
occurs, the BIOS could be damaged. Table 39 lists the drives and media types that
can and cannot be used for BIOS recovery. The BIOS recovery media does not need
to be made bootable.

3.8
Boot Options
In the BIOS Setup program, the user can choose to boot from a hard drive, optical
drive, removable drive, or the network. The default setting is for the optical drive to
be the first boot device, the hard drive second, removable drive third, and the network
fourth.
3.8.1
Optical Drive Boot
Booting from the optical drive is supported in compliance to the El Torito bootable
CD-ROM format specification. Under the Boot menu in the BIOS Setup program, the
optical drive is listed as a boot device. Boot devices are defined in priority order.
Accordingly, if there is not a bootable CD in the optical drive, the system will attempt
to boot from the next defined drive.
3.8.2
Network Boot
The network can be selected as a boot device. This selection allows booting from the
onboard LAN or a network add-in card with a remote boot ROM installed.
Pressing the <F12> key during POST automatically forces booting from the LAN. To
use this key during POST, the User Access Level in the BIOS Setup program's Security
menu must be set to Full.
3.8.3
Booting Without Attached Devices
For use in embedded applications, the BIOS has been designed so that after passing
the POST, the operating system loader is invoked even if the following devices are not
present:
•
•
•
Video adapter
Keyboard
Mouse
3.8.4
Changing the Default Boot Device During POST
Pressing the <F10> key during POST causes a boot device menu to be displayed. This
menu displays the list of available boot devices. Table 40 lists the boot device menu
options.

Adjusting Boot Speed
These factors affect system boot speed:
•
•
•
Selecting and configuring peripherals properly
Optimizing BIOS boot parameters
Enabling the Fast Boot feature
3.9.1
Peripheral Selection and Configuration
The following techniques help improve system boot speed:
•
•
•
•
Choose a hard drive with parameters such as “power-up to data ready” in less than
eight seconds that minimizes hard drive startup delays.
Select a CD-ROM drive with a fast initialization rate. This rate can influence POST
execution time.
Eliminate unnecessary add-in adapter features, such as logo displays, screen
repaints, or mode changes in POST. These features may add time to the boot
process.
Try different monitors. Some monitors initialize and communicate with the BIOS
more quickly, which enables the system to boot more quickly.
3.9.2
BIOS Boot Optimizations
Use of the following BIOS Setup program settings reduces the POST execution time:
•
•
•
In the Boot menu, enable the settings for Fast Boot. This option will allow the BIOS
to skip through various stages of POST and boot quickly to the last detected boot
device.
In the Boot Menu, set the hard disk drive as the first boot device. As a result, the
POST does not first seek a diskette drive, which saves about one second from the
POST execution time.
In the Peripheral Configuration submenu, disable the LAN device if it will not be
used. This can reduce option ROM boot time by up to four seconds.
NOTE
It is possible to optimize the boot process to the point where the system boots so
quickly that the Intel logo screen (or a custom logo splash screen) will not be seen.
Monitors and hard disk drives with minimum initialization times can also contribute to
a boot time that might be so fast that necessary logo screens and POST messages
cannot be seen.
This boot time may be so fast that some drives might be not be initialized at all. If
this condition should occur, it is possible to introduce a programmable delay ranging
from zero to 30 seconds by 5 second increments (using the Hard Disk Pre-Delay
feature of the Advanced Menu in the Drive Configuration Submenu of the BIOS Setup
program).
75
Intel Desktop Board DQ87PG Technical Product Specification
3.9.3
Power Button Menu
The Power Button Menu can be accessed during power on if the user presses the
power button and holds it down until three short beep sounds are emitted by the
board piezoelectric speaker. The BIOS will display the following prompt and wait for a
keystroke:
[ESC]

If an unrecognized key is pressed, the BIOS will beep and wait for another keystroke.
If one of the listed hotkeys is pressed, the BIOS will follow the indicated boot path.
Password requirements must still be honored.
If Disable Fast Boot is selected, the BIOS will disable all Fast Boot optimizations and
reset the system.
3.10 Hard Disk Drive Password Security Feature
The Hard Disk Drive Password Security feature blocks read and write accesses to the
hard disk drive until the correct password is given. Hard Disk Drive Passwords are set
in BIOS SETUP and are prompted for during BIOS POST. For convenient support of S3
resume, the system BIOS will automatically unlock drives on resume from S3. Valid
password characters are A-Z, a-z, and 0-9. Passwords may be up to 16 characters in
length.
The User hard disk drive password, when installed, will be required upon each powercycle until the Master Key or User hard disk drive password is submitted.
The Master Key hard disk drive password, when installed, will not lock the drive. The
Master Key hard disk drive password exists as an unlock override in the event that the
User hard disk drive password is forgotten. Only the installation of the User hard disk
drive password will cause a hard disk to be locked upon a system power-cycle.
Table 41 shows the effects of setting the Hard Disk Drive Passwords.

Overview of BIOS Features
During every POST, if a User hard disk drive password is set, POST execution will
pause with the following prompt to force the user to enter the Master Key or User hard
disk drive password:
Enter Hard Disk Drive Password:
Upon successful entry of the Master Key or User hard disk drive password, the system
will continue with normal POST.
If the hard disk drive password is not correctly entered, the system will go back to the
above prompt. The user will have three attempts to correctly enter the hard disk drive
password. After the third unsuccessful hard disk drive password attempt, the system
will halt with the message:
Hard Disk Drive Password Entry Error
A manual power cycle will be required to resume system operation.
NOTE
As implemented on DQ87PG, Hard Disk Drive Password Security is only supported on
SATA port 0. The passwords are stored on the hard disk drive so if the drive is
relocated to another SATA port or computer that does not support Hard Disk Drive
Password Security feature, the drive will not be accessible.
NOTE
Hard Disk Drive Password Security is not supported in PCH RAID mode. Secured hard
disk drives attached to the system when the system is in PCH RAID mode will not be
accessible due to the disabling of BIOS Hard Disk Drive Password support.
3.11 BIOS Security Features
The BIOS includes security features that restrict access to the BIOS Setup program
and who can boot the computer. A supervisor password and a user password can be
set for the BIOS Setup program and for booting the computer, with the following
restrictions:
•
•
•
•
•
The supervisor password gives unrestricted access to view and change all the
Setup options in the BIOS Setup program. This is the supervisor mode.
The user password gives restricted access to view and change Setup options in the
BIOS Setup program. This is the user mode.
If only the supervisor password is set, pressing the <Enter> key at the password
prompt of the BIOS Setup program allows the user restricted access to Setup.
If both the supervisor and user passwords are set, users can enter either the
supervisor password or the user password to access Setup. Users have access to
Setup respective to which password is entered.
Setting the user password restricts who can boot the computer. The password
prompt will be displayed before the computer is booted. If only the supervisor
password is set, the computer boots without asking for a password. If both
passwords are set, the user can enter either password to boot the computer.
77
Intel Desktop Board DQ87PG Technical Product Specification

•
For enhanced security, use different passwords for the supervisor and user
passwords.
Valid password characters are A-Z, a-z, and 0-9. Passwords may be up to
19 characters in length.

Beep Codes, Error Messages, and POST Codes
4.3
Port 80h Power On Self Test (POST) Codes
During the POST, the BIOS generates diagnostic progress codes (POST codes) to I/O
port 80h. If the POST fails, execution stops and the last POST code generated is left
at port 80h. This code is useful for determining the point where an error occurred.
Displaying the POST codes requires a PCI bus add-in card, often called a POST card.
The POST card can decode the port and display the contents on a medium such as a
seven-segment display.
NOTE
In order to view POST codes on a diagnostic card inserted into a PCI slot, the BIOS
must be enabled to route POST codes to the PCI slots. The default setting is to route
them to the LPC debug header, as this is required to pass Windows 8 certification.
The following tables provide information about the POST codes generated by the BIOS:
Table 46 lists the Port 80h POST code ranges
Table 47 lists the Port 80h POST codes themselves
Table 48 lists the Port 80h POST sequence
NOTE
In the tables listed above, all POST codes and range values are listed in hexadecimal.
