Chelsio T520-SO-CR / Need to understand the bios menu option of this card
Hi to all,
I recently purchase a Chelsio T520-SO-CR, i need some explanation about the bios menu to set it properly.
Does someone can help me to understand the different information below please ?
Adapter BIOS : Enabled
Initialisation Platform : Both
Boot Mode : Compatibility
EDD : 2.1
EBDA Relocation : Permitted
I have never seen any cause to change the default value there. What are you trying to do?
Just to disable some useless feature and potential issue with pfsense…
I think the only feature you might disable on that card is PXE. Is it causing an issue?
I disabled it.
Do you know what is EDD and EBDA Relocation ?
Appears to be Extended BIOS Data Area. So allowing that to be relocated presumably gives more flexibility but perhaps breaks anything hard-coded with the original localtion.
Enhanced Disk Device seems to be for using the card with FCoE to provide a boot device to the main BIOS.
No real reason to change either of those I would think.
