The following instructions can be found at the Intel® Server Board S2600WT Product Family Technical Product Specification on section 11.1 BIOS Default Jumper Block:

This jumper resets BIOS options, configured using the <F2> BIOS Setup Utility, back to their original default factory settings.

  2. Remove the system top cover and move the BIOS DFLT jumper from pins 1 - 2 (default) to pins 2 - 3

    (Set BIOS Defaults)

  3. Wait 5 seconds then move the jumper back to pins 1 - 2
  4. Re-install the system top cover
  5. Re-Install system power cords

    The system will automatically power on after AC is applied to the system.

  6. During POST, access the <F2> BIOS Setup utility to configure and save desired BIOS options

After resetting BIOS options using the BIOS Default jumper, the Error Manager Screen in the <F2> BIOS Setup Utility will display two errors:

  • 0012 System RTC date/time not set
  • 5220 BIOS Settings reset to default settings

The system time and date may need to be reset.
