BIOS

Specification
Description
BIOS 32-bit Services
BIOS Boot Specification v1.01. Provides more control over how and from what devices the workstation will boot.
PCI 3.0 support
WMI is Microsoft's implementation of Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) for Windows. WMI is fully compliant with the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) Common Information Model (CIM) and WBEM specifications.
ATAPI
Users can define a specific day-of-week and time for the system to power on
BBS
Review and customize system configuration settings controlled by the BIOS
WMI support
Recovers system BIOS in corrupted Flash ROM
BIOS power on
Saves BIOS settings to USB flash device in human readable file. Repset.exe utility can then replicate these settings on machines being deployed without entering Computer Configuration Utility (F10 Setup)
ROM Based Computer Setup Utility (F10)
System Management BIOS 2.7.1, for system management information
System/emergency ROM flash recovery with video
Disables the ability to boot from removable media on supported devices
Replicated setup
Alerts management console if memory is removed or changed
SMBIOS
Monitors the temperature state within the chassis.
Three modes:
  • NORMAL - normal temperature ranges
  • ALERTED - excessive temperatures are detected, raises a flag so action can be taken to avoid shutdown or provide for a smoother system shutdown.
  • SHUTDOWN - excessive temperatures are encountered. Automatically shuts down the computer without warning before hardware component damage occurs.
Boot control
Provides secure, fail-safe ROM image management from a central network console.
Updates can be performed before starting the OS. Updates can be periodically scheduled.
Memory change alert
Allows the system to enter and resume from low power modes (sleep states). Enables an operating system to control system power consumption based on the dynamic workload.
Makes it possible to place individual cards and peripherals in a low-power or powered-off state without affecting other elements of the system. Supports ACPI 4.0 for full compatibility with 64-bit operating systems.
Thermal alert
A user-defined string stored in non-volatile memory that is displayed in the BIOS splash screen.
Remote ROM flash
System administrators can power on, restart, and power off a client computer

ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface)

Specification
Description
Ownership tag
Allows for very low power consumption with quick resume time.
Remote wakeup / remote shutdown
Allows a new or existing system to boot over the network and download software, including the operating system.
ASF 2.0 compliant
Reports the system BIOS revision level in Computer Configuration Utility (F10 Setup). Version is available through an industry standard interface (SMBIOS) so that management SW applications can use and report this information.
Instantly available PC (suspend to RAM - ACPI sleep state S3)
Allows management SW to read revision level of the system board. Revision level is digitally encoded into the HW and cannot be modified.
Remote system installation via F12 (PXE 2.1) (remote boot from server)
Assesses system health at boot time with selectable levels of testing.
ROM revision levels
System automatically detects addition of new hardware.
System board revision level
The system can be booted without a keyboard.
Start-up diagnostics (power-on self-test)
Common BIOS image supports System Configuration Utility (F10 Setup) menus in 12 languages with local keyboard mappings.
Auto setup when new hardware installed
The user or IT administrator to set a unique tag string in non-volatile memory.
Keyboard-less operation
Allows I/O slot parameters (option ROM enable/disable) to be configured individually.
Localized ROM setup
Control parameters are set according to detected hardware configuration for optimal acoustics.
Asset tag
(Pre-video) critical errors are reported via beeps and blinks on the power LED.
Pre-slot control
AMT 9.0; Allows workstation status to be monitored on a remote console
Adaptive cooling
Helps to prevent the installation of unauthorized versions of a BIOS (a rogue BIOS) from a virus, malware, or other code that could lead to compromised system security, data access, physical service, or even system board replacement.
Pre-boot diagnostics
A feature in the HP BIOS that prevents changes and/or infections to the Master Boot Record. Useful in protecting from viruses.
Intel Active Management Technology (AMT)
The HP BIOS offers a write-protected boot block ROM that provides recovery from a failed flashing of the computer BIOS. This special recovery mode prevents the system from becoming unusable or “bricked” when a BIOS update is interrupted.
Boot Block Emergency Recovery Mode (BIOS Recovery)
UEFI 2.3.1
