Chapter 2
Hardware Installation
This chapter summarizes the steps to install the G586IPC system board
into your system unit. It also includes a description of the area in which
you must work and directions for memory installation. Before installing
the system board, obtain the memory you plan to install. Please refer to
the memory chart on page 14 for the number and type of SIM modules
needed for the amount of memory you require.
Preparing the Area
Before unpacking the system board, make sure the location you have
selected is relatively free of dust and static electricity. Excessive exposure to dust, static electricity, direct sunlight, excessive humidity, extreme cold, and water can damage the operational capabilities of your
system board. Avoid placing the unit on surfaces such as carpeted
floors. These areas attract static electricity which can damage circuits
on your system board.
Make sure the power source has a properly grounded, three-pronged
socket. It is essential that the power connection be properly grounded
for correct functioning of your system board. For further protection, we
recommend that you use a surge suppressor. This will protect the system board from damage that may result from a power surge on the
electrical line.
Move items that generate magnetic fields away from your system board
since magnetic fields can also damage your system board. Once you
have selected the ideal location, unpack the G586IPC system board
carefully.
Handling the System Board
It is quite easy to inadvertently damage your system board even before
installing it in your system unit. Static electrical discharge can damage
computer components without causing any signs of physical damage.
You must take extra care in handling the system board to ensure
against electrostatic build-up.
9
Static Electricity Precautions
1. To prevent electrostatic build-up, leave the board in its anti-static
bag until you are ready to install it.
2. Wear an antistatic wrist strap.
3. Do all preparation work on a static-free surface with system board
components facing up.
4. Hold the system board only by its edges. Be careful not to touch
any of the components, contacts or connections, especially gold
contacts, on the board.
5. Avoid touching the pins or contacts on all modules and connectors.
Hold modules and connectors by their ends.
Warning:
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor, disk drives,
add-in boards, and other components. Perform the upgrade instruction
procedures described at an ESD workstation only. If such a station is
not available, you can provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap and attaching it to a metal part of the system chassis.
If a wrist strap is unavailable, establish and maintain contact with the
system chassis throughout any procedures requiring ESD protection.
Installing the System Board
If you are installing the G586IPC system board, the following outlines
the basic installation steps. Before installing the system board into your
system unit, you should prepare the tools you will need.
You will need:
• One medium size, flat-bladed screwdriver
• One medium Phillips screwdriver
• One needle-nosed pliers
• One nutdriver
1. Unlock your system unit. Turn off the power and disconnect all
power cords and cables.
10
2. Remove the system unit cover. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions if necessary.
3. Remove expansion cards seated in any of the expansion slots and
detach all connectors from the old system board.
4. Loosen the screws holding the original system board and remove
the board from the system. Save the screws.
5. Remove the G586IPC from its original packing box. Be careful to
avoid touching all connectors and pins on the board. Please refer to
the handling instructions on pages 9-10 for proper handling techniques.
6. Insert the SIMMs into the SIMM banks on the G586IPC. The quantity and location of the SIMMs depends on the memory configuration and type of modules you intend to use.
7. Insert the cache module, if any, into the cache module slot on the
G586IPC. Refer to the Cache Memory section on page 15 for upgrading your cache memory.
8. Install the CPU. Be sure pin 1 of the CPU is aligned with pin 1 of
the socket.
9. Set the corresponding jumpers.
10. Install the prepared G586IPC system board into the case and replace the screws.
11. Reinstall all cards and connectors and replace the system unit
cover. Reconnect all power cords and cables.

System Memory
The SIMM (Single In-line Memory Module) sockets are divided into two
banks on the system board, Bank 0 and Bank 1. Each bank consists of
2 SIMM sockets.
You will need 2 or 4 pieces of SIM modules, depending on the amount
of memory you intend to install. Make sure you insert the same type of
SIMMs in one bank. You can install SIMMs in any of the banks, Bank 0
or Bank 1, but you must populate a bank first before going to the next
bank.
The G586IPC system board can support 8MB to 256MB of memory using 1MBx36, 2MBx36, 4MBx36, 8MBx36, or 16MBx36 72-pin SIMMs.
The table below shows the supported SIM modules and their corresponding memory sizes.

Examples:
If you are installing 8MB of memory, you must insert two 1MBx36
SIMMs in Bank 0 or Bank 1.
If you are installing 256MB of memory, you must insert four 16MBx36
SIMMs in Bank 0 and Bank 1.
If you are installing 24MB of memory, you must insert two 1MBx36
SIMMs in Bank 0 and two 2MBx36 SIMMs in Bank 1. You may also
install it vice versa by inserting two 1MBx36 SIMMs in Bank 1 and two
2MBx36 SIMMs in Bank 0.
13
Installing a SIM Module
A SIM module simply snaps into a socket on the system board. Pin 1 of
the SIM module must correspond with Pin 1 of the socket.

key
1. Position the SIMM above the socket with the “notch”in the module
aligned with the “key”on the socket.
2. Seat the module at a 45° angle into the bank. Make sure it is completely seated. Tilt the module upright until it locks in place in the
socket.
Cache Memory
The G586IPC system board can support 256KB or 512KB pipeline
burst, direct map write-back cache SRAM. Your system board may
come with 0KB or 256KB cache mounted onboard. The 160-pin cache
module slot lets you upgrade your cache memory by installing a 256KB
or 512KB cache module.
Note:
You do not need to set any jumpers or modify the Award BIOS Setup
utility when you install the cache module.
If your system board comes with 0KB cache, you can install a 256KB or
512KB cache module in the cache module slot. If your system board is
installed with 256KB onboard cache (located at U22 and U23), you can
upgrade your cache memory to 512KB by installing a 256KB cache
module in the cache module slot. Please refer to page 12 for the locations of the cache module slot (SSM1), U22 and U23.

Installing Upgrade CPUs
The G586IPC is equipped with a 321-pin Zero Insertion Force (ZIF)
socket at location U27 of the system board. Refer to page 12 for the
location of the ZIF socket. This socket is designed for easy removal of
an old CPU and easy insertion of an upgrade CPU. The socket allows
you to carefully place the new CPU into its position. If you need to
apply excessive force to insert the CPU, you are not installing the CPU
correctly.
Warning:
Open the socket only if you are actually installing a CPU. The warranty
on the original CPU will be voided if the S/N seal is broken.
Before proceeding with the upgrade, take note of the following. The microprocessor and heat sink may be hot if the system has been running.
To avoid the possibility of a burn, power the system off and let the
processor and heat sink cool for 15 minutes.
The 321-pin ZIF socket consists of five rows of pin holes on each side.
To prevent improper CPU installation, the ZIF socket has a Plug/Keying
mechanism. Several holes in the socket are plugged so that the CPU
will go in only one way. If you cannot easily insert the CPU, verify that
pin 1 of the CPU is aligned with pin 1 of the socket.
Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) Socket
23
To install an upgrade CPU, do the following.
1. Make sure the handle on the side of the ZIF socket is up. To raise
the handle, push it down, slightly pull it out to the side, then raise it
as far as it will go. It may be necessary to initially apply a small
amount of sideways force to free the handle from its retaining “tab.”
Once clear of the “tab,”the handle will open relatively easily. The
top plate will slide back. Do not use screwdrivers or other tools to
open the socket, or you may damage the system or socket.
Handle
Lifting the Handle
2. Once the lever is completely up, remove the old CPU carefully by
lifting it straight out of the socket. You are now ready to insert the
new CPU.
Pin 1
24
3. Position the CPU above the ZIF socket. Make sure pin 1 of the
CPU is aligned with pin 1 of the socket. Lower the chip until the
pins are inserted properly in their corresponding holes. Remember
that very little force is needed to install the CPU. If the CPU is not
easily inserted, verify whether or not pin 1 of the CPU is aligned
with pin 1 of the socket. Applying too much pressure can damage
the CPU or the socket.
Pin 1
Positioning the CPU Above the ZIF Socket
4. Push the handle down until the handle locks into place. The top
plate will slide forward. You will feel some resistance as the pressure starts to secure the CPU in the socket. This is normal and will
not damage the CPU. However, if the handle is not completely
closed, damage to the CPU and/or system board may result.
25
Clearance Requirements
Your CPU comes with a heat sink mounted on top. To maintain proper
airflow once the upgrade is installed on the system board, the CPU and
heatsink require certain space clearances.
The clearance above the CPU’s fan/heat sink must be at least 0.4
inches. The clearance on at least 3 of 4 sides of the processor must be
at least 0.2 inches. The cables (for floppy drive, hard drive, CD-ROM,
etc.) must be routed clear of the CPU and its airspace.
Fan Exhaust
The CPU must be kept cool by using a fan with heatsink. The temperature of the air entering the fan/heatsink cannot exceed 45°C (113°F).
The ambient or room temperature must be below 37°C (99°F).
In order to provide proper airflow to the CPU, all movable obstructions
(power supply cables, cards, floppy disk cables) must be clear of the
CPU fan/heatsink component in accordance with the space clearance
discussed in the Clearance Requirements section of this manual.

I/O Address
3F8h
2F8h
Connecting the Serial Ports
Two DB-9P serial port cables are provided with the system board. They
are mounted on a card-edge bracket along with the PS/2 mouse cable.
The upper serial port cable should be used for the COM 1 primary serial port; connect it to connector J2 on the system board. The lower
28
serial port cable should be used for the COM 2 secondary serial port;
connect it to connector J3 on the system board. Make sure the colored
stripes on the ribbon cables are aligned with pin 1 of connectors J2 and
J3. Mount the card-edge bracket to the system chassis.
PS/2 Mouse Port
The PS/2 mouse port is a 6-pin connector on the system board. Attach
the 6-pin mouse port cable, which is mounted on the card-edge bracket,
to connector J1. Make sure the brown wire on the PS/2 mouse connector is aligned with pin 1 of connector J1. Mount the card-edge bracket to
the system chassis.
Parallel Port
The G586IPC system board has a standard connector for interfacing
your PC to a parallel printer. The parallel port on your system board can
be set to any of the following system I/O addresses:
I/O Address: 3BC-3BE Hex
378-37A Hex (default)
278-27A Hex
Connecting the Parallel Printer Port
Attach the DB-25S printer port cable, which came with the system board, to
connector J5 on the G586IPC system board. Make sure the colored stripe
on the ribbon cable aligns with pin 1 of connector J5. Use a small nutdriver
to mount the cable into a DB-25 cutout in the system chassis.
Floppy Disk Drive Controller
The G586IPC system board has a built-in floppy disk controller that
supports two standard floppy disk drives. You can install any 360KB,
720KB, 1.2MB, 1.44MB, or 2.88MB floppy disk drives.
Connecting the Floppy Disk Cable
1. Install the 34-pin header connector into the floppy disk connector
(J4) on the system board. The colored edge of the ribbon should be
aligned with pin 1 of connector J4.
29
2. Install the other 34-pin header connector(s) into the disk drive(s).
Align the colored edge of the daisy chained ribbon cable with pin 1
of the drive edge connector(s). The end-most connector should be
attached to the drive you want to designate as Drive A.
IDE Hard Disk Interface
The G586IPC system board is equipped with two PCI IDE shrouded
headers that will interface up to four IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics)
hard disk drives.
Note:
Only IDE hard drives or ATAPI CD-ROMs can be connected to the IDE
interface.
Connecting the IDE Hard Disk Interface
To prevent improper IDE cable installation, each PCI IDE shrouded
header has a keying mechanism. The 40-pin connector on the IDE
cable can be placed into the header only if pin 1 of the connector is
aligned with pin 1 of the header.
Header
Note:
The IDE cable with a standard 40-pin connector (without the keying
mechanism) can be installed in the PCI IDE shrouded header. Be extremely careful to match the colored edge of the ribbon with pin 1 of the
header.

Connecting the Hard Disk Cable
1. Connect the cable to the system board. If you are connecting two
hard drives, install the 40-pin connector of the IDE cable into the
primary IDE shrouded header (connector J6). If you are adding a
third or fourth IDE device, install the 40-pin connector of the other
IDE cable into the secondary IDE shrouded header (connector J7).
2. Connect the cable to the devices. Install the other 40-pin header
connector(s) into the device making sure to match the colored edge
of the ribbon cable aligned with pin 1 of the drive edge
connector(s).
Note:
Refer to your disk drive user’s manual for information about selecting
proper drive switch settings.
Adding a Second IDE Hard Drive
When using two IDE drives, one must be set as the master and the
other as the slave. Follow the instructions provided by the drive manufacturer for setting the jumpers and/or switches on the drives. No
changes are needed on the G586IPC system board when adding a second hard drive.
We recommend that the IDE hard drives be from the same manufacturer. In a few cases, drives from two different manufacturers will not
function properly when used together. The problem lies in the hard
drives, not the G586IPC system board.
Preparing an IDE Drive for Use
IDE disk drives are already low-level formatted, with any bad-track errors entered, when shipped by the drive manufacturer. Do not attempt
to do a low-level format or you may cause serious damage to the drive.
To use an IDE drive, you need to enter the drive type (this information
is provided by the drive manufacturer) into the system’s CMOS setup
table. Then run FDISK and FORMAT provided with DOS.
31
Warning:
Do not run FDISK and FORMAT programs on a drive that has already
been formatted or you will lose all programs and data stored on the
drive.
Installing Expansion Cards
The G586IPC system board is equipped with 3 dedicated PCI slots, 3
dedicated 16-bit ISA slots and 1 shared PCI/ISA slot. All PCI slots are
bus masters. You can only install one card in one or the other of the
shared slots at a time; you cannot install devices in both slots.
Due to the size of the CPU with its accompanying heatsink/fan component, the length of the add-in cards in PCI slots 1 and 2 and ISA slots 1
and 2 is limited to 18cm (measured from the bracket of the card).
The length of the add-in card in PCI slot 4 is limited to 18cm only if its
components protrude more than 5mm from the solder side of the card.
Refer to page 12 for the locations of the expansion slots.
Note:
The BIOS needs to be configured for the PCI add-in cards installed in
the PCI slots. Refer to the “PCI Configuration Setup”presented in the
“Software Installation”section of the manual.
32

Hard Drive Mode
The G586IPC supports three HDD modes: Normal, LBA and Large. If
your hard disk drive does not support LBA mode, the “LBA”option will
not be displayed. If your HDD has 1024 or fewer cylinders, the “Large”
option will not be displayed.
Normal Mode
The Normal mode is the generic access mode in which neither the
BIOS nor the IDE controller will make any transformations during harddrive access.
The maximum number of cylinders, heads and sectors for Normal mode
are 1024, 16 and 63, respectively.
no. Cylinders
x no. Heads
x no. Sectors
x bytes per sector
(1024)
( 16)
( 63)
( 512)
528 megabytes
If you set your HDD to Normal mode, the maximum accessible HDD will
be 528 megabytes even though the physical size of the HDD may be
larger.
43
LBA (Logical Block Addressing) Mode
The LBA mode is a HDD accessing method to overcome the 528 megabyte limitation. The number of cylinders, heads and sectors shown on
the screen may not be the actual number for the HDD.
During the HDD accessing, the IDE controller will transform the logical
address described by the sector, head and cylinder number into its own
physical address inside the HDD.
The maximum HDD size supported by the LBA mode is 8.4 gigabytes. It
is obtained by the following formula.
no. Cylinders
x no. Heads
x no. Sectors
x bytes per sector
(1024)
( 225)
( 63)
( 512)
8.4 gigabytes
Large Mode
The Large mode is the extended HDD access mode supported by the
G586IPC system board. Some IDE HDDs have more than 1024 cylinders without LBA support (in some cases, you may not want the LBA
mode). This system board provides another alternative to support these
kinds of HDDs.
The BIOS tells the operating system that the number of cylinders is half
of the actual number and that the number of heads is double the actual
number. During disk access, the reverse conversion is done by the
INT13h routine.
Example of Large mode:
44
CYLS. HEADS
SECTORS MODE
1120
560
59
59

32
NORMAL
LARGE
Maximum HDD size:
no. Cylinders
x no. Heads
x no. Sectors
x bytes per sector
(1024)
( 32)
( 63)
( 512)
1 gigabyte
Note:
To support LBA or Large mode, address translation software is included
in the Award BIOS HDD Sevice Routine (INT13h). If you are running an
operating system that bypasses the BIOS Int13 Service Routine, LBA
and Large Mode may fail.
Save & Exit Setup
When all the changes have been made, highlight “Save & Exit Setup”
and press <Enter>. The message below will appear:
Save to CMOS and Exit (Y/N)? N
Type “Y”and press <Enter>. The following message will appear:

Type “Y”and press <Enter>. The modifications you have made will be
written into the CMOS memory, and the system will reboot. You will
once again see the initial diagnostics on the screen. If you wish to
make additional changes to the setup, press <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Esc>
keys simultaneously or <Del> after memory testing is done.
Exit Without Saving
When you do not want to save the changes you have made, highlight “Exit
Without Saving”and press <Enter>. The message below will appear:
Quit Without Saving (Y/N)? N
Type “Y”and press <Enter>. The system will reboot and you will once
again see the initial diagnostics on the screen. If you wish to make any
changes to the setup, press <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Esc> keys simultaneously or <Del> after memory testing is done.
