The Z8PE-D12X motherboard comes with a modified version of the American Megatrends AMIBIOS version 2.61. This has split the BIOS into MAIN, Advanced, Server and Boot menus. The main menu has the BIOS version number, the Processor clock speed and number, the usable memory size the LAN addresses and the system memory information.

The Advanced Menu is where the CPU features are enabled and disabled, Northbridge configuration, Southbridge configuration and VT-d configuration is set. The normal server computer has no need for overclocking as the system is designed to stay online without fail for a long time, and there are few overclocking features on this board as a consequence.

The Server menu is where you can enable Remote Access, the Serial Port Number, Serial Port mode, flow control, redirection after BIOS POST and Terminal Types. The Boot menu is where the boot device priority is set. The Main menu is where the IDE and AHCI Configuration is set as well. The BIOS has a ton of features geared for the server workstation market.
