[1] UEFI-Firmware (versus BIOS)
Just as with many modern PCs, the Shuttle XPC slim Barebone DX30 does away completely with a BIOS, but uses a pure UEFI firmware instead. The terms UEFI firmware and BIOS are widely used synonymously, but hardware initialising is now performed by the UEFI. Users might not even notice, but the operating system must be installed and executed in UEFI mode. UEFI creates a GUID Partition Table (GPT) on the system partition instead of a Master Boot Record (MBR). A PC running pure UEFI firmware alone must have a 64-bit operating system installed.
[2] Optional D-Sub/VGA connector
The mainboard features one analog graphics port CN6 on the mainboard. This signal can be lead to the outside as a 15-pin D-Sub VGA connector on the backpanel by using an optional adapter PVG01. However doing so means one serial port (COM) less can be used.
[3] Power on after power fail
The BIOS setup provides a "Power-On after Power Fail" function that can be found under "Power Management Configuration". As the name indicates, this function determines the PC's behaviour after power failure: (1) unconditional power on, (2) restore former status or (3) keep system turned off. As a matter of the nature of this function, it may fail after short power failures. This is why the Shuttle XPC slim Barebone DX30 also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper JP2 (on the mainboard behind the power button) the system will start unconditionally once power is supplied.
[4] HDMI output supports DVI-D with optional adapter
[5] How to convert DisplayPort into HDMI/DVI
The DisplayPort output can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:
DELOCK 82590: 1 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
DELOCK 82435: 5 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)
The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either through DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).
However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.
[6] Serial Ports
This PC features two serial RS232 ports with 9-pin D-Sub connectors on the back panel. The left COM port (COM1) can also be configured as RS422 and RS485 in the BIOS setup.
Pin 9 of the D-Sub COM-Port is a multi-functional signal. Based on the Jumper JP2 configuration on the mainboard, it can be configured as Ring Indicator (RI) or external power supply with a voltage level of either 5 V or 12 V. Each COM port can be configured separately. The maximum current is 500 mA per connector.
[7] Linux-Compatibility, Date Nov'16: successfully tested with Ubuntu 16.10, Kernel 4.8.
Older Ubuntu versions (16.4, 15.10, 14.4), Fedora 25 and SuSE 42.2 do still not privide the required drivers for DX30 and the system runs very slowly.
