Miscellaneous Settings

You can use the Miscellaneous Settings screen to perform specific functions such as updating the asset tag and changing the system date and time.

To view the Miscellaneous Settings screen, perform the following steps:

3.
On the System Setup Main Menu screen, click System BIOS.
4.
On the System BIOS screen, click Miscellaneous Settings.

The Miscellaneous Settings screen details are explained as follows:

Enables or disables the F1/F2 prompt on error. This option is set to Enabled by default. The F1/F2 prompt also includes keyboard errors.
Enables you to determine whether the system BIOS loads the legacy video (INT 10H) option ROM from the video controller. Selecting Enabled in the operating system does not support UEFI video output standards. This field is available only for UEFI boot mode. You cannot set the option to Enabled if UEFI Secure Boot mode is enabled.
Enables or disables In-System Characterization. This option is set to Disabled by default. The two other options are Enabled and Enabled - No Reboot.
NOTE: The default setting for In-System Characterization is subject to change in future BIOS releases.
When enabled, In-System Characterization (ISC) executes during POST upon detecting relevant change(s) in system configuration to optimize system power and performance. ISC takes about 20 seconds to execute, and system reset is needed for ISC results to be applied. The Enabled - No Reboot option executes ISC and continues without applying ISC results until the next time system reset occurs. The Enabled option executes ISC and forces an immediate system reset so that ISC results can be applied. It takes the system longer to be ready due to the forced system reset. When disabled, ISC does not execute.
