material. During the time the board is handled, frequently touch any
conducting materials that are connected to the ground.

Use an anti-static pad: When configuring the ECN-680A-H61, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
ECN-680A-H61.
2.2 Un pa c kin g P re c a u tio n s

NOTE:
A jumper is a metal bridge that is used
to close an electrical circuit.
It consists
of two metal pins and a small metal clip
(often protected by a plastic cover) that
slides over the pins to connect them.
To CLOSE/SHORT a jumper means
connecting the pins of the jumper with
the plastic clip and to OPEN a jumper means removing the plastic clip
from a jumper.

The IEI one key recovery is an easy-to-use front end for the Norton Ghost system backup
and recovery tool. This tool provides quick and easy shortcuts for creating a backup and
reverting to that backup or reverting to the factory default settings.
NOTE:
The latest One Key Recovery software provides an auto recovery
function that allows a system running Microsoft Windows OS to
automatically restore from the factory default image after encountering
a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or a hang for around 10 minutes.
Please refer to Section C.3 for the detailed setup procedure.
The IEI One Key Recovery tool menu is shown below.
Figure C-1: IEI One Key Recovery Tool Menu
Prior to using the IEI One Key Recovery tool (as shown in Figure C-1) to backup or
restore Windows system, five setup procedures are required.
1. Hardware and BIOS setup (see Section C.2.1)
2. Create partitions (see Section C.2.2)
3. Install operating system, drivers and system applications (see Section C.2.3)
4. Build the recovery partition (see Section C.2.4)
5. Create factory default image (see Section C.2.5)

C.1.1 S ys te m Re q u ire m e n t
NOTE:
The recovery CD can only be used with IEI products. The software will
fail to run and a warning message will appear when used on non-IEI
hardware.
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.
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

The One Key Recovery allows a client system to automatically restore to a factory default
image saved in a Linux system (the server) through LAN connectivity after encountering a
Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or a hang for around 10 minutes. To be able to use this
function, the client system and the Linux system MUST reside in the same domain.
NOTE:
The supported client OS includes:

Windows 2000

Windows 7

Windows XP

Windows CE

Windows Vista

Windows XP Embedded
Prior to restoring client systems from a Linux server, a few setup procedures are required.
S te p 1:
Configure DHCP server settings
S te p 2:
Configure TFTP settings
S te p 3:
Configure One Key Recovery server settings
S te p 4:
Start DHCP, TFTP and HTTP
S te p 5:
Create a shared directory
S te p 6:
Setup a client system for auto recovery
The detailed descriptions are described in the following sections. In this document, two
types of Linux OS are used as examples to explain the configuration process – CentOS
5.5 (Kernel 2.6.18) and Debian 5.0.7 (Kernel 2.6.26).
P a g e 167
ECN-680A-H61 Em b e d d e d S ys te m
C.6.1 Co n fig u re DHCP S e rve r S e ttin g s
S te p 1:
Install the DHCP
#yum install dhcp (CentOS, commands marked in red)
#apt-get install dhcp3-server (Debian, commands marked in blue)
S te p 2:
Confirm the operating system default settings: dhcpd.conf.
CentOS
Use the following command to show the DHCP server sample location:
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
The DHCP server sample location is shown as below:
Use the following command to copy the DHCP server sample to etc/dhcpd.conf:
#cp /usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/dhcpd.conf.sample /etc/dhcpd.conf
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
Debian
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
Edit “/etc/dhcpd.conf” for your environment. For example, add
next-server PXE server IP address;

Install the tftp, httpd and syslinux.
#yum install tftp-server httpd syslinux (CentOS)
#apt-get install tftpd-hpa xinetd syslinux (Debian)
S te p 2:
Enable the TFTP server by editing the “/etc/xinetd.d/tftp” file and make it use the
remap file. The “-vvv” is optional but it could definitely help on getting more
information while running the remap file. For example:
CentOS
#vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
Modify:
disable = no
server_args = -s /tftpboot –m /tftpboot/tftpd.remap -vvv
P a g e 169
ECN-680A-H61 Em b e d d e d S ys te m
Debian
Replace the TFTP settings from “inetd” to “xinetd” and annotate the “inetd” by
adding “#”.
#vi /etc/inetd.conf
Modify: #tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin....... (as shown below)
#vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp

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 S u b -fu n c tio n :
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 D-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.
