What are the BIOS changes for my CSRackDual28/CSRackDual32?

The following is a list of BIOS settings that are changed during the build process to optimize the system for audio. Please note that this list also applies to CSRackDual30 and CSRackDual34 Creation Stations shipped prior to 11/13/06. To enter the BIOS, repeatedly tap the “Delete” key as the Creation Station powers up. You should see “Entering Setup…” on the screen just before entering the BIOS. When in the BIOS, you will use the arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate, and the ENTER key to make selections. Only the settings that are changed are listed, so if there is question whether other settings may have changed navigate to the “Exit” tab, select “Load Setup Defaults” and press ENTER.

– “Main” tab
o Legacy Diskette A = Disabled
o IDE Configuration (select and press enter)
Configure SATA As = RAID

– “Advanced” tab
o USB Configuration (select and press enter)
Legacy USB Support = Disabled (unless you are using a USB
mouse and keyboard, in which case you will leave this enabled)
o Onboard Devices Configuration (select and press enter)
HD Audio Controller = Disabled
Silicon 3132 Controller = Disabled
ITE8211F Controller = Disabled
Serial Port 1 Address = Disabled
Parallel Port Mode = EPP

– “Power” tab
o Hardware Monitor (select and press enter)
CPU Fan Speed = Ignored
Chassis Fan 1 = Ignored

– “Boot” tab
o Boot Device Priority * (select and press enter)
1st Boot Device = Optical Drive (actual name may vary)
2nd Boot Device = System Drive (actual name may vary)
3rd Boot Device = Disabled
o Boot Settings Configuration
Full Screen Logo = Disabled

* The optical drive will normally show up as “PMLITE-ONDVD/RW.” The system hard drive should show up as “3MST380….” As the actual name will vary, these are general guidelines on what to look for exactly.

When these changes have been completed, go to the “Exit” tab and choose the option to save the changes and exit. Your Creation Station will now reboot with its factory BIOS settings.
