This file can be saved to a formatted, blank 1. Save Current Settings as Default—Saves the current settings as default settings for the next operation.
Restore Factory Settings as Default—Restores the factory settings as the default settings for the next operation. Saves changes to system configuration and exits the workstation setup. Hard Disk—Provides information about the hard disk drives in the workstation. Available in IDE Mode only. Diskette Type for legacy diskette drives only —Identifies the highest capacity media type accepted by the diskette drive.
Multisector Transfers—Defines the transfer of data per interrupt. Options are 8, 16, and Disable. Transfer Mode—Specifies the active data transfer mode. Max UDMA is the default. This prevents you from needing to know how the mass storage device was formatted. Automatic is the default.
You should not change the translation mode selected by the BIOS. If the selected translation mode is not compatible with the translation mode that was active when the drive was partitioned and formatted, the data on the disk is inaccessible.
Removable Media Boot—Enables and disables the ability to start the workstation from removable media. Legacy Diskette Write—Enables and disables the ability to write data to removable media.
This emulation mode is the default and offers the best performance and most functionality. Select a drive—Enables you to select a drive to test. This selection appears only when at least one drive capable of performing the IDE DPS self-test is attached to the workstation.
Enables you to configure the boot, diskette drive, and hard disk drive orders by physically reordering the menu entries. The following is the default boot order presented in the menu:. Press Enter to drag a device to a preferred place. Press F5 to remove the device from consideration as a bootable device. Boot devices can be disabled in the boot order process. You can temporarily override the boot order. After POST completes, a list of bootable devices is displayed.
Use the arrow keys to select the preferred bootable device and press Enter. The workstation then starts from the selected nondefault device for this one time. Enables you to set and enable a setup password for the administrator. If you create a setup password, you must use it to change workstation setup options, to flash the ROM, and to make changes to certain Plug and Play settings under Windows.
It provides these options:. Lock Legacy Resources—Prevents the operating system from changing resources to serial, parallel, or diskette controller. Enables you to enable and disable the cover removal sensor, or to notify you if the sensor is activated. Makes the following devices available or hidden to the workstation:. For each device, Device Available is the default setting and allows the operating system to access the device. Device Hidden makes the device unavailable; it is disabled by the BIOS and cannot be enabled by the operating system.
This option becomes available if Embedded Device is set to Available. Device Hidden is the default. If this option is made available, the following options become available:. Power-On Authentication Support—Enables and disables an authentication feature that requires you to enter a TPM user key password to start the workstation. This feature uses the TPM to generate and store the authentication password. Reset Authentication Credential—Resets the authentication functionality and clears authentication credentials.
To enable the Embedded Security Device and to access any security features associated with the device, you must enter a setup password. Setting a device to Available enables the operating system to access the device. Hidden makes the device unavailable.
It is disabled by the BIOS and cannot be enabled by the operating system. Enables or disables the ability to boot to the network using the F12 key or the boot order. Asset Tag—A byte string identifying the workstation.
Ownership Tag—An byte string identifying ownership of the workstation. This tag appears on the screen during POST. These ID numbers are normally set in the factory and are used to uniquely identify the workstation.
This mode prohibits code from running in pages that were set up as data pages, and prevents attacks such as buffer overflows. Operating system support is required for this feature. Hidden is the default. Power-On Authentication Support—Enables and disables an authentication feature that requires a TPM user key password to start the workstation.
Embedded Security Device Support—Enables the workstation to leverage the trusted platform mechanism device. OS Management of Embedded Security Device—Enables or disables the ability of the operating system to control the TPM device, including turning it on and off, initializing it, and resetting it.
Enables the administrator to set the security level of each setup feature. Selecting Hidden prevents the text from being displayed although pressing F9 still opens the boot menu. Selecting Hidden prevents the text from being displayed although pressing F12 still forces the workstation to attempt booting from the network.
After Power Loss—Enabling this option directs the previous state to be the default. This delay is sometimes needed for hard disk drives on some expansion cards that spin up slowly. Enables you to specify a weekday and time for BIOS power-on, or to disable it. Hyper-Threading—Provides processor parallelization such that the operating system treats one processor as two. Operating system parameters generally override Onboard Devices settings. I would like to know if the Z will support the 3.
Here is a card that I believe will work in your computer. However, I suggest that you use StarTech's Chat Live to talk with one of their techs to make certain. The specs for the card state that it will fit into a PCI Express x4, x8 or x So, I believe that it should work.
Below is a link to the HP page describing the Z's slots:. Here is a note from StarTech regarding their card's speeds, emphasis added: PCI Express Gen 1. PCI Express Gen 2. PCI Express Gen 3. The available bandwidth 10Gbps is shared equally between the two ports.
Z gives you some PCIe Gen3 slots Thanks for the replies. SDH's reply about the speeds is very informative and saved me the expense of purchasing a card that would not deliver the promised speeds.
Then, NEC sold that end of their business to Renasus. Message 1 of 7.
