AMD developing Safe Boot technology

Posted on Friday, Oct 13 2006 @ 02:44 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD is working on a Safe Boot technology with motherboard and chipset makers to increase compatibility.
However, the good news is that AMD is now developing a Safe Boot technology with mainboard and chipset manufactures to enhance the compatibility. Sources said the technology is to add a unified register code such that the system can boot up without appropriate Microcode. Of course, it doesn’t mean the story is ended. With that Microcode, the processor’s voltage and clock are set to a minimum only. Users still have to update the BIOS under the DOS mode.

Are you new to DOS? It doesn’t matter! Manufacturers will enclose a bootable OS in the driver disk so that one may update the BIOS much easier. However, AMD has no release schedule for Safe Boot technology yet. Just hope we can have it in the soon future!
