Using Boot Sequence Selector

The Boot Sequence Selector allows the boot order to be changed without accessing the BIOS. To use theBoot Sequence Selector, perform the following steps:

1.Boot to DOS.

2.Enter bs <#>,bs.exe followed by a digit from 1 to 4, at the command prompt to select a boot sequence.

D:\BOOTSEQd>bs

*** Boot Sequence Selector Version 0.03 ***

Created by Rockwell Chuang 10/01/2005.1. Usage:

BS [ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 ]

BS 1: [Floppy] => [HardDisk] => [CD-ROM]=> [LAN] BS 2: [HardDisk] =>[CD-ROM]=> [LAN] => [Floppy] BS 3:[CD-ROM]=> [HardDisk] => [LAN] => [Floppy] BS 4: [LAN] => [Floppy] => [HardDisk] =>[CD-ROM]

D:\BOOTSEQ>

Figure 2-27.Boot Sequence Selector

NOTE:NOTE:

Enter bs <2> at the command prompt to change the boot sequence to HDD | CD ROM | LAN | Floppy.

Using DMITools

The DMI (Desktop Management Interface)Tool copies BIOS information to EEPROM. Used in the DMI pool for hardware management.

When the BIOS shows Verifying DMI pool data, it is checking that the table correlates with the hardware before sending it to the operating system (Windows, etc.).

To update the DMI Pool, perform the following:

1.Boot to DOS.

2.At the prompt, enter dmitools with one of the following arguments:

/r ==> Read dmi information from memory

/wm ==> Write Manufacturer Name to EEPROM (max. 16 characters)/wp ==> Write Product Name to EEPROM (max. 16 characters)

System Utilities

/ws ==> Write Serial Number to EEPROM (max. 22 characters)/wu ==> Write UUID to EEPROM (ignore string)

/wa ==> Write Asset Tag to EEPROM (max. 32 characters)

The following examples show the commands and the corresponding output information: 1. Read DMI Information from Memory

Input:

dmitools /r

Output:

Manufacturer (Type1, Offset04h): Acer

Product Name (Type1, Offset05h): Aspire One 522

Serial Number (Type1, Offset07h): 01234567890123456789

UUID String (Type1, Offset08h): xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx2. Write Product Name to EEPROM

Input:

dmitools /wp Aspire One 522 3. Write Serial Number to EEPROM

Input:

dmitools /ws 01234567890123456789

4. Write UUID to EEPROM (Create UUID from Aspire One 522 Series Service Guide)

Input:

dmitools /wu

5. Write Asset Tag to EEPROM

Input:

dmitools /wa Acer Asstag

NOTE:NOTE:

For examples two (2) through five (5), restart the system to write any changes in the data to the EEPROM.

Updating MAC Address and SSID/SVID Utility

1.Copy the contents of the memcfg folder to a bootable HDD device.

2.Use a text editor to edit mac_id.ini with the correct MAC address and SSID/SVID.

Current_MAC_address = 00-04-F0-11-11-1A

SubSystem_ID = 05-43-10-25

Figure 2-28.Editing MAC_ID.INI

3.Boot computer to HDD device.

4.Enter memcfg folder.

5.At the DOS prompt, enter memcfg -p mac_id.ini to write to eeprom.

C:\MEMCFG>memcfg -pmac_id.ini EEPROM/OTP R/W Utility 1.0.0.37 (Sep 24 2010) Searching for supported Ethernet adapter...
