This page exists to help any owners or future buyers of the Shuttle HOT-569 motherboard with installation and configuration of the board. This page is pretty large (especially the BIOS stuff), and in many places I'm actually re-creating what already exists in the printable PDF manual that came with the board. But you may still learn a thing or two about the board or about computers in general (at least I hope so). Of course, I don't expect that all of the information presented here is 100% correct. I tried to make it as accurate as possible, but I'm sure there are some errors and maybe even mis-conceptions about how things work. And please be aware that I only have experience with revision 2.0 and 2.1 of the motherboard. If you have the same board, it could still be different than mine if it is a different revision or if it has a different BIOS. Also, this motherboard isn't exactly new. And there are quite a few people who have a good deal more experience than I do with this board. So if you have anything to contribute, please feel free to share your stories with me. I'll be more than happy to give you credit. :-)
This page is actually broken down into four pages. The first deals with the motherboard's specifications. The second is the mainboard installation. The third deals with the BIOS's features and its configuration. And the fourth is a list of links to information and downloadable files for the motherboard.
And one last thing, the information presented here is FREE. In other words, when it comes to taking advice from this page, you get what you pay for.
According to Shuttle, the HOT-569 has been discontinued. It has been replaced by the 569A. The 569A has only 2 DIMMs and uses jumpers instead of dip switches to set the multiplier and bus speed. The 569A also has wake-on-LAN and its own BIOS.
