Boundless Virgin WebPlayer 200MHZ Internet Appliance
Bios-Settings for use with HD

The BIOS rev. settings below are for version: T730A1B0 Date: 01/14/2000


Primary master: Auto

Boot Options:

            Silent boot: Disabled (This will let you see the post, off if you don’t want to see it)

            Quick Boot Mode: Enabled

            Summery Screen: Enabled (This will show you all devices configured after POST)

            Hard Disk Pre-Delay: Disable

Keyboard Features:

            User preference is ok here


Advanced Chipset Control:

            USB BIOS Legacy Support: Disabled (Enable for USB Keyboard use)

            USB Host Controller: Enable

            SDRAM Timing:

            SDRAM Timing: /3 (Functionally /2.5 worked but didn’t yield any better performance, and /2 crashed)

             CAS latency: 2 clock (You can bump this up as the system only runs at 33Mhz fsb anyway) 

             Other SDRAM Control: Auto (Leaving this here will give you less headache. Higher settings yielded no benefit)

I/O Device Configuration:

            Serial Port A: Disabled (Unless your going to do some mod (+5 volts is supplied to this port either way))

            Serial Port B: Disabled (See above)

            Floppy Disk Controller: Disabled

            Local Bus IDE Adaptor: Primary

Audio Options Menu:

            Sound: Enabled (Duh)

            Base I/O address: 220 – 22F

            MPU I/O address: 330 – 331

            Interrupt: IRQ 5

            8-bit DMA Channel: DMA 1

            16-bit DMA Channel: DMA 5

PCI Configuration:

            UMB, IRQ and DMA all left at default (Available)

            Secured Setup Configurations: No (For 9X only)

            Installed OS: Win95 or Other (Didn’t matter, though I use the Win95 setting for 98SE)

            Reset Configuration Data: No

            Large Disk Access Mode: DOS


Set Supervisor Password: Enter (this is where you change the BIOS password from “schwasck” to whatever you want. If you leave it blank it will revert to the original “schwasck” password.


Power Saving: Enabled

Standby Timeout: 1 Hour (Set this to what you want)

Resume On Time: Off

Resume Time: 00:00:00


This is the important part. You must have “Hard Drive” above “Removable Devices” if you are to boot from a hard drive. If you expand “Hard Drive” you should see your hard drive here, followed by “Bootable Add-in Cards”
