UEFI BIOS SetupIntroductionThe purpose of this manual is to describe the settings in the AMI UEFI BIOS Setup program on thismotherboard. The Setup program allows users to modify the basic system configuration and savethese settings to NVRAM.UEFI BIOS determines what a computer can do without accessing programs from a disk. Thissystem controls most of the input and output devices such as keyboard, mouse, serial ports anddisk drives. BIOS activates at the first stage of the booting process, loading and executing theoperating system. Some additional features, such as virus and password protection or chipsetfine-tuning options are also included in UEFI BIOS.The rest of this manual will to guide you through the options and settings in UEFI BIOS Setup.Plug and Play SupportThis AMI UEFI BIOS supports the Plug and Play Version 1.0A specification.EPA Green PC SupportThis AMI UEFI BIOS supports Version 1.03 of the EPA Green PC specification.ACPI SupportAMI ACPI UEFI BIOS support Version 1.0/2.0 of Advanced Configuration and Power interfacespecification (ACPI). It provides ASL code for power management and device configurationcapabilities as defined in the ACPI specification, developed by Microsoft, Intel and Toshiba.PCI Bus SupportThis AMI UEFI BIOS also supports Version 2.3 of the Intel PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect)local bus specification.Using SetupWhen starting up the computer, press Del during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter theUEFI BIOS setup utility.In the UEFI BIOS setup utility, you will see General Help description at the top right corner, andthis is providing a brief description of the selected item. Navigation Keys for that particular menuare at the bottom right corner, and you can use these keys to select item and change the settings.Note»»  The default UEFI BIOS settings apply for most conditions to ensure optimum performance of themotherboard. If the system becomes unstable after changing any settings, please load the defaultsettings to ensure system’s compatibility and stability. Use Load Setup Default under the Exit Menu.»»  For better system performance, the UEFI BIOS firmware is being continuously updated. The UEFI BIOSinformation described in this manual is for your reference only. The actual UEFI BIOS information andsettings on board may be slightly different from this manual.»»  The content of this manual is subject to be changed without notice. We will not be responsible for anymistakes found in this user’s manual and any system damage that may be caused by wrong-settings.6 UEFI BIOS Setup
