Onboard LAN Boot ROM: Contrary to your guess, this setting is not related to booting your PC remotely from the LAN port. Instead, this is intended to allow newer gigabit LAN ports to run at their full 1 Gbps speed when using an older operating system by loading the LAN controller’s boot ROM during boot.
This is where the LAN Boot ROM BIOS option comes into play. When enabled, the motherboard loads the Gigabit LAN controller boot ROM when it boots up. This allows the LAN controller to run at its full speed of 1000 Mbit/s with operating systems without proper driver support.
The Preboot Execution Environment or PXE (commonly pronounced pixie) is a client-server environment that allows networked computers to boot from the network interface card (NIC) instead of a CD-ROM or hard drive.
Onboard LAN is a special chipset on the motherboard that is designed to handle network tasks for the computer, such as B. Home networks and Internet connections.
This section of the BIOS contains settings for built-in peripherals that ship with the motherboard. These include serial and parallel ports, as well as audio, LAN, and USB ports. Unused ports use a lot of resources and should be disabled.
Fast Boot is a feature in the BIOS that shortens the boot time of your computer. When Fast Boot is enabled: Boot from Network, Optical and Removable Devices are disabled. Video and USB devices (keyboard, mouse, drives) are not available until the operating system is loaded.
In general, you should install Windows in the newer UEFI mode as it includes more security features than the old BIOS mode. If you boot from a network that only supports BIOS, you must boot in legacy BIOS mode.
PXE has no mechanism for encryption or authentication, is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks, does not scale outside of local networks, and has reliability issues related to TFTP timeouts and UDP packet loss.
Combine this with the fact that 2.5Gb Ethernet is cheaper, uses less power, and works with existing cabling – which is not true for faster Ethernet alternatives – and quickly becomes the best choice< /b>.
Step 2: go to BIOS >> Advanced >> integrated peripherals >> Integrated LAN Controller >> disable.
Integrated Gigabit Ethernet (or onboard LAN port) means that an Ethernet port and LAN controller are built into your motherboard and connected directly to the PCI bus.
ECP mode is approximately 24 times faster than other parallel port modes and even faster than the USB 1.0/1.1 standard found on most existing computer motherboards.
The definition of “Over 4G decoding” is intended to allow the user to enable or disable memory-mapped I/O for a 64-bit PCIe device on 4GB or more address space. Please enable this feature when using multiple PCIe cards.
The Network Stack option allows you to boot from a designated PXE server on your network. You will often find this option also called “Network Boot”. PXE or Preboot Execution Environment is a client-server protocol that allows a PXE client to load boot programs from a server.
Leaving Fast Startup enabled shouldn’t hurt your PC – it’s a built-in Windows feature – but there are a few reasons why you might still want to disable it. One of the main reasons is if you are using Wake-on-LAN, which will likely have problems when your PC shuts down with fast startup enabled.
