PCI installation Installing an adapter in a PCI Slot =================================== 1 With power off, put the adapter in the server. 2 Start the server. In most cases, the PCI server will automatically configure the adapter. If this doesn't happen, you may have to configure the server to work with the adapter. See the next section for details. If you have problems ==================== Some PCI servers require additional configuration to install a PCI adapter. Follow these steps to complete the installation: 1 Make sure you have the latest BIOS version for your server. 2 Make sure the BIOS is set up correctly. The following sections describe these steps in detail. Make sure you have the latest BIOS version ------------------------------------------ Contact your server's manufacturer to make sure you're using the latest BIOS. BIOS setup ---------- In some PCI servers, you may need to enable the PCI slot using the BIOS Setup program. This is especially common in PCI servers with a Phoenix BIOS. After installing the adapter, turn on the server and enter the Setup program during system initialization (usually by pressing F1, F2, or Ctrl-Alt-S). The key you press is usually shown on the screen. Once in Setup, find the entry for PCI slots. Set these parameters: PCI Slot#: Slot where the adapter is installed (1-3) Master: ENABLED Slave: ENABLED Latency Timer: 40 Interrupt: Choose an IRQ. Edge-level: Level The exact wording of the parameters varies with different servers. Save the changes, exit Setup, and continue with the installation. Updating the Compaq DeskPRO XL BIOS =================================== There are two primary steps: 1 Upgrade the Compaq system BIOS to v2.22E (available from Compaq). In general, follow the instructions on page 7-12 (Using the Compaq EISA Configuration Utility) in the Compaq "Beyond Setup for the DeskPro XL." This includes: Power off, Set switch 6 to ON, Power on, Run EISA Config Utility to reconfigure, select computer setup icon, select OK to restart, Press F10 with cursor in upper right of screen, select System Configuration, wait while computer reconfigures, enter to complete, MAKE SURE to set S6 back to OFF position before powering off (this disables the erase option). 2 Upgrade the Compaq Rompaq, and follow the instructions below. The Compaq BBS Rompaq upgrade for the DeskPro/XL (SP1022.zip) works with this adapter. In general, follow the instructions from Compaq, which include setting switch S1 to On for update. (S1 On - disabled: Flash ROM can be updated. S1 OFF - enabled: Prevents Flash ROM updates. Off is the default.) To correctly enable the card after this BIOS is installed: 1 On restart, press F10 to go into the configuration utility when the blinking cursor moves to the right corner. 2 The COMPAQ configuration screen should come up. The BIOS rev. shown here must be 2.22E (or later). 3 Press return to get initial configuration choices. 4 Press CTRL-A. If a message saying 'Advanced Features Enabled' does not appear, you cannot enable the adapter. 5 Press return to confirm, and then choose Configure system. 6 After the configuration runs, choose View, Edit Details. 7 Under the Advanced Features section, look for PCI Master Enable. The default is disabled. Change the setting to enabled. 8 Further down, in Slot X, you should see PCI Ethernet Controller. Move the cursor to enabled, and press F6 to check the settings. Typically, the adapter will be INT 2(9). Change this to INT 10. 9 Move down to Embedded PCI Ethernet Controller. The default is enabled. Change the setting to disabled. 10 Save settings and exit. * Third-party trademarks are the property of their respective owners.Download Driver Pack
