BIOS Setup Utility Overview

BIOS Setup Utility Overview

This specification introduces the three BIOS definitions for the Procelerant CE3100 COM Express module: Standard BIOS. This BIOS supports the functions of CE3100 COM Express modules, and can boot from any custom carrier board that uses COM Express type 3 pinouts. This BIOS may not support all features of the custom carrier board, especially if it contains legacy interfaces. Full BIOS. This BIOS supports all available features when a CE3100 COM Express module is used with the CR200-VGA ATX carrier board. SCM BIOS. This BIOS supports the operation when a CE3100 COM Express module is used with the Promentum ATCA-2210 Switch And Control Module (SCM).

The three BIOS definitions are based on the standard Phoenix TrustedCore with RadiSys extensions. A BIOS setup utility is included to display and modify system configuration. The BIOS configuration information is stored in nonvolatile CMOS RAM and is used to initialize the system. To access to the BIOS setup utility, press F2 during POST when the system boots up. This provides consistency of operation across all supported operating systems, and forces a direct correspondence between the hardware and BIOS settings.

1.1

Menu map

Figure 1 shows the menu map of the BIOS setup utility. Each menu is equivalent to a functional group and comprises of all correlated BIOS settings. Note: The CE3100 BIOS provides an interface to detect carrier board configuration serial EEPROM based on CE3100s supported features. When the carrier board serial EEPROM is also supported on the carrier board, menu options in the BIOS setup utility may vary depending on EEPROM contents.

General Help

When pressing F1 or Alt + H in the BIOS setup utility, the General Help should display the following literal texts: Different BIOS configurations can change the system behavior. If incorrect values cause the system boot failure, load the defaults to recover. <Up/Down> arrows select fields in the current menu. <PgUp/PgDn> moves to previous/next page on a scrollable menu. <Home/End>moves to top/bottom item in the current menu. Within an item, <F5> or <-> selects the preceding option and <F6>, <+>, or <Space> selects the next option. <Left/Right> arrows select menus on the menu bar. <Enter> displays sub-items for the item marked with . <F9> loads setup defaults. <F10> saves current settings and exits. <Esc> or <Alt-X> exits a submenu and returns to the parent menu. <F1> or <Alt-H> displays General Help (this screen).

User interface design


Definitions of BIOS item types

According to function design considerations, each BIOS item should be addressed with one of the following types: 1.3.2 User entry Read-only Executable command Submenu Sorting orders of BIOS items and available options The sorting order of all BIOS settings on each setup screen shall match the screen mockups in the sections that follow. It may follow a logical order, or alphabetical order where the logical order of grouped settings is not important. The sorting order of all available options under each BIOS item shall always follow an alphabetical order. Active fields An active field exists only when a BIOS item comprises of more than one available option. A read-only setting will never preserve active fields. The currently selected option in an active field should be highlighted. When a setup screen is displayed, the cursor always pauses at the first selectable field. When the user returns to a previously visited menu by pressing any of the up, down, left, and right arrow keys, the active field is always the first selectable field. Read-only settings A setting that is used to display the system output. A setting that identifies the input information for the system, but there is only one available option. This occurs when this information is important and must be made visible to users.

1.3.3 1.3.4

The read-only settings include:

Read-only BIOS settings cannot be selected in the BIOS setup utility. When the user navigates through BIOS settings by pressing any of the up, down, left, and right arrow keys, the BIOS will leap over read-only settings. 1.3.5 1.3.6 Invisible settings A setting that is designed for test purpose only. This type of invisible settings should be generally limited. A setting that is essential to the product and the users knowledge base, and does not need any user interference. Symbolic indicators The invisible settings include:

1.3.6.1 I/O resource conflicts In most cases the BIOS can automatically detect all possible conflicts. Once a BIOS setting being specified causes an I/O resource conflict, a yellow star appears to the left of the device name as seen under the operating system. Such resource conflicts will be manually intervened and resolved under the operating system according to operating environment and system requirements.
