You can also set your preferred power options, for example, making sure the computer turns back on after a loss of power, useful if the board is located remotely.
Restore Factory configuration
You can restore the factory default settings from the SCU pressing the F9 key.
You can also restore the factory UEFI BIOS configuration with a simple procedure involving the RTC battery: when the board is NOT connected to any power source, unplug the RTC battery on the bottom side of the board and keep it unplugged for at least 1 minute. Plug the RTC battery again and power up the board, all the configurations should now be reverted to the factory defaults.
Updating the UEFI BIOS to a newer version will also restore the new factory default configuration.
Heads up! You can use the RTC battery procedure starting from the UEFI BIOS v1.03 so check to have your UDOO X86 updated.
