  • Page 90: Checkpoints

    Checkpoints A checkpoint is either a byte or word value output to I/O port 80h.The BIOS outputs checkpoints throughout bootblock and Power-On Self Test (POST) to indicate the task the system is currently executing. Checkpoint sare very useful in aiding software developers or technicians in debugging problems that occur during the pre- boot process.
  • Page 91 Checkpoint Description Restore CPUID value back into register. Give control to BIOS POST (ExecutePOSTKernel). See POST Code Checkpoints section of document for more information. System is waking from ACPI S3 state. E1-E8 EC- OEM memory detection/configuration error. This range is reserved for chipset vendors & system manufacturers.
  • Page 92 Bootblock Recovery Code Checkpoints The Bootblock recovery code gets control when the BIOS determines that a BIOS recovery needs to occur because the user has forced the update or the BIOS checksum is corrupt. The following table describes the type of checkpoints that may occur during the Bootblock recovery portion of the BIOS. NOTE: Checkpoints may differ between different platforms based on system configuration.
  • Page 93: Bios Recovery

    BIOS Recovery AMIBIOS supports a "recovery flash" mode, which can be used to flash update a BIOS from the boot block. This is used to update a BIOS image without the need to boot to an operating system. The following is the process that user should follow to flash BIOS ROM.
