Remove the HDD Tray Remove the two screws on the side of the HDD tray and slide to the left to remove
Mount HDD in Tray Use the silver flat headed Phillips screws with the long posts through the rubber grommets on the HDD carrier to mount the HDD. Make sure it is in upside down with the connectors opposite the edge of the chassis. Replace carrier in chassis
Mount the “L” Bracket on ODD Screw the “L” bracket to the back of the ODD with the tiny Phillips screw. Orient the bracket with “L” toward the bottom and the angled slot to the right.
Mount the ODD Remove the cover plate for the ODD slot by pressing down on the notched center section and lifting the two tabs (the cover is removed by pushing back in the case. Slide the ODD through the slot and secure the “L” bracket at the back to the chassis with a single screw.
Special SATA Power cable Adapter cable for slim ODD
Locate the SATA Power Cable Look for the cable that has an “L” connection at one end and a pair of SATA power connections and one large 1x4 Molex power connector
Plug In the SATA Power Cable Plug the “L” SATA connector into the board at #17. Then plug one SATA power connector into the HDD.

HDD SATA Data Cable Plug the HDD SATA cable into the back of the HDD. Plug the “L” connector at the other end into the second socket at #17
Place the Processor Heat Pipe Place the heat pipe on the processor socket as shown. Make sure the cooling fins fit into the space provided. Tighten the four spring loaded screws until the heat pipe is firmly seated. Align the fan with the cooling fins and screw down at 3 points.
Attach the Heat Pipe Fan Header Plug in the heat pipe fan to #3
Do Not Plug In the LVDS Header You will need to use the Integrator Tool Kit (ITK) to set the BIOS to use the flat panel display connected through the LVDS header. The next step is very important. You must correctly set the power for the flat panel LVDS display
Set the Power Jumpers for LVDS Back in the area marked #14 there are two blocks at opposite ends with jumpers. The one to the left is a 1x3. Set this across the two right pins. The other is a 2X3 with two pins missing. Set this jumper across the back two furthest to the right. Each is marked with an
Connect the DVI Monitor Before you can use the built-in flat panel (LVDS) display, you will have to use the Intel Integrator Tool Kit (ITK) to enable the BIOS (the default is no LVDS device installed). Also plug in the USB keyboard and power supply Plug in the DOS bootable USB thumb drive with the DOS version of the ITK.
Hit F2 to Enter the BIOS Scroll over to the “Boot” tab Scroll down to “Boot to Removable Devices” and make sure it reads Scroll down to “Boot USB Devices First set to Plug in the DOS bootable USB thumb drive with the DOS version of the Integrator Tool Kit (ITK) Press the F10 key “Exit Saving Changes (Y/N)” and press “Y” the system will reboot to the USB key
Using the ITK for DOS When you see the “C:\” prompt type in the following (the command is case sensitive, so type exactly as shown) and hit “Enter” itoolkit EXTRACT –config –tokens –ini=ag_g11.ini The EXTRACT command creates a visual file with the various BIOS commands/functions. The screen will look similar to this
Modify the ag_g11.ini File part 1 Boot your laptop and plug the bootable USB key into it Use “Wordpad” to edit the g11.ini file Use CTRL F command and find IGD Flat Panel Change the “Value” from 0:Disable to 1:LVDS
Modify the ag_g11.ini File part 2 Use CTRL F command and find Pre-Defined EDID Change the Value from 3 to 15 (1080P)
Modify the ag_g11.ini File part 3 Use CTRL F command and find IGD Secondary Video Port Change the Value from 0 : None to 3 : DVI-I Digital ; IGD Secondary Video Port ;--------------------------------------- ; Select a single value from this list: ; 0 : None (default) ; 2 : DVI-I (Blue) Analog ; 3 : DVI-I (Blue) Digital ; 5 : HDMI Value=3
