Motherboard and attach them to the new board when replacing.

(7/13)
Acc-1049

3-11. Dongle for Options


The dongle is used to protect illegal copies of the options for the product. Because of their nature of purpose as copy
protection, it is not available as a service part. If one is broken or missing, contact EFI's technical support with
detailed information. They will take an appropriate measure, sending a substitute for example.

3-12. Security Information


For this controller, Windows XP Pro is adopted as the OS. Therefore, security patch for OS is released from
Microsoft. Instruct the user to install the released security patch as soon as possible.
In addition, the installed security patch will be listed on the configuration page.

3-13. Restore Function not Supported


Restore function is the compressed backup of the initial system in the hard disk, so you can reinstall the system
without using the system CD. This function is not supported.

3-14. Specification of Calibration Paper


Three types of Calibration Paper are specified.
- Canon CLC 80gsm
- Hammermill 28lb.
- Neusiedler 100gsm
You can set the paper type on the operation panel of the engine side (screen for controller):
Functions > Run Setup > PS Setup > Calibration Paper

3-15. Points to Note when REMOVABLE HDD KIT is Equipped


It is necessary to apply the patch to HDD in order to stabilize its operations when removable HDD is equipped. (Refer
to "READ ME FIRST! Installing the Removable HDD Firmware Update".) This patch is built in the HDD, so it is
not deleted when reinstalling the system. (That is, it is not necessary to apply the patch when reinstalling the system.)
However, when the HDD is replaced, you need to apply the patch to a new HDD. Make sure to read two types of
Installation Guide before starting the operations.
- READ ME FIRST! Installing the Removable HDD Firmware Update
- Installing the HDD Security Option
