The ROM/BIOS


Setup vs bios vs cmos

Setup vs. BIOS vs. CMOS

Setup is a program that controls settings in the BIOS, which are stored on a device manufactured with CMOS technology.


Setup lets you control how your computer is configured

Setup lets you control how your computer is configured.


When you get a new computer it is a good idea to write down the configuration information

When you get a new computer, it is a good idea to write down the configuration information.


The bios settings determine the configuration of your system

The BIOS settings determine the configuration of your system.


This information is saved in a special memory called cmos

This information is saved in a special memory called CMOS.


Presentation 29 the rom bios

CMOS has its own battery so that the configuration information will not be lost when the computer is turned off or during a power failure.

Enabling L2 Cache ECC Support allows error checking to occur on data accessed from the L2 cache.

When this option is disabled, error checking is not performed.

When set to Auto, the state of the L2 ECC cache will follow the state of the ECC DRAM.

When do you update bios

When Do You Update BIOS?

  • Solve a problem or add capability

  • Adding a new piece of hardware


Where do you find the bios update

Where do you find the BIOS update?

  • Check the server manufacturer’s website

  • Check the motherboard manufacturer’s website

  • Download from computer manufacturer or motherboard vendor

  • “Flash” to upgrade


Flash bios

Flash BIOS

  • In computers built after 1996, BIOS is in a flash ROM.

  • A flash ROM can be erased and rewritten right in the system without removing the ROM.

  • BIOS upgrades are available from the computer or motherboard manufacturer’s website.

  • Upgrades can be downloaded and “flashed” into the ROM.


Elements to be downloaded

Elements to be downloaded:

  • BIOS Update – Updates are periodically developed to correct known problems, enhance functionality, or to include new technology.

  • Upgrade Utility – A special program with which you can flash the new BIOS into ROM.


1 save your cmos ram setup configuration

1.Save your CMOS RAM Setup Configuration.

  • Enter Setup.

  • Record the BIOS Version Number.

  • Write down (or print out) the CMOS settings.

  • Make certain you save the information for all screens.


2 create a bootable floppy disk

2.Create a bootable floppy disk.

  • Go to the DOS prompt

  • Insert diskette in floppy drive

  • Type:

    FORMAT A: /S


3 extract the flash utility and copy it to the diskette

3.Extract the flash utility and copy it to the diskette.


4 boot from the floppy

4.Boot from the floppy

  • It may be necessary to reset the boot sequence in Setup so that the system will boot from the floppy.

  • Then boot from the floppy disk.

  • The flash utility should automatically run.


5 save a copy of the current bios

5.Save a copy of the current BIOS

  • Most flash utilities will give you this option.

  • You will need the current BIOS if for some reason the new one causes some unforeseen problem.


6 update the flash rom

6.Update the Flash ROM

  • Select the command.

  • Select the BIOS image.

  • Note the warning.

  • Execute the command.

  • The operation may take several minutes.

  • Allow the operation to finish.


7 when done remove the floppy disk reboot and go into setup

7.When done, remove the floppy disk, reboot, and go into Setup.


8 in setup

8.In Setup:

  • Check the new BIOS Version Number to insure that the update has been successful.

  • Load the default values for CMOS.

  • Re-enter unique settings from the CMOS list you recorded earlier.

  • Save the settings.


9 exit setup and reboot the system

9.Exit Setup and Reboot the system.


Flash bios recovery

Flash BIOS Recovery


Option 1 physically replace the rom

Option 1: Physically replace the ROM


Option 2 the bios recovery procedure

Option 2. The BIOS Recovery Procedure

  • The flash ROM has a small un-erasable section that holds an emergency BIOS recovery routine.

  • Recovery/Normal Jumper.


The bios recovery procedure

The BIOS Recovery Procedure

  • Move the jumper to the Recovery Mode.

  • Insert the bootable disk you created earlier into drive A and boot the system.

  • The routine should run automatically and get you back to a point where you can at least boot the system.

  • Move the jumper back to the Normal mode.
