1. The update program will display following information:

IA2 Mem Base = bbbb
Current Board ID and Rev = xxxx-yyy
Current BIOS Rev = zz
New BIOS Filename = 761xxxx.bin
New BIOS Rev = zz

Note: bbbb = IASPACE in hex, ex. 0xDE00
xxxx = Board ID, ex. 3193
yyy = Board Revision, ex. 004
zz = BIOS Revision, ex. 09

5. If the new BIOS Rev is smaller or equal to current the
BIOS Rev you will also see following message.

Warning!! New BIOS Revision is older or
same Revision as the Current BIOS Revision

Release 2.11 - GA (General Availability)

Final Release

ImageAccel offers up to 4 times performance improvement over
ImageAccel, plus superior image decompression and display
performance for document images and ImageAccel Scale-To-Gray.

This ImageAccel release includes full PCI and ISA support for
Color and Grayscale displays.

This release includes the following updates/new features:
Support for three new Cornerstone displays:

* Color 45/101sf
* Color 50/101sf
* Color 50/115sf

This Readme contains the following sections:

1. PCI/ISA Configuration and Hardware Installation Procedure
2. Installing the Windows 3.1/Windows 95 Display Driver
3. Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 Shared Network Installations
(MOVED TO NETWORK.TXT ON DISKETTES)
4. ImageAccel Standard 256 Color and ClearColor(TM) Display
Drivers
5. System Hardware and Software Compatibility
6. Problems Fixed with this Release
7. Tips and Techniques
8. PCI Troubleshooting Steps

This release contains three video drivers. A Standard 256 Color (8-
bit) Native Windows95 mini-driver, and both a Standard 256 Color
(8-bit) Clearcolor (24 bit) native Windows 3.1 drivers. When running
setup, our software automatically determines which operating system
you're running on, and installs the appropriate driver for you.

Windows 95 control panel provides the option to force load PCI memory
into a high address. The default will be to load high. (NOTE: This
feature is designed for some computers that will not automatically
configure multi-function display adapters. Users should only attempt
this setting after contacting Cornerstone Customer Service for
instructions).

Windows 95 users can revert to VGA through the display properties
"settings" tab. You can change your desktop resolution to 640x480x16
colors, which loads the Windows 95 stock VGA driver.


Section 1 - PCI/ISA Configuration and Hardware Installation Procedure

Please read this document before you attempt to install and configure
ImageAccel. Please refer to Section 9 - PCI troubleshooting if
your ImageAccel system does not boot (or your display is black)
after following the steps below.

This section provides details about computers that may need a BIOS
upgrade to support ImageAccel. If your computer fails to boot
ImageAccel or run Windows properly, there are three probable
causes; incorrect configuration settings, incompatible system BIOS,
or early PCI BIOS or chipsets.

While many systems with Award BIOS v4.50G fail, we have found that
some systems with this BIOS do not fail.

Section 1 - Updates and New Features
****************************************************************************
This release includes the following updates/new features:

1) Color Display Support - support for the following new Cornerstone
color displays:

Cornerstone Color 50/115sf Color Display
Cornerstone Color 50/101sf Color Display
Cornerstone Color 45/101sf Color Display

2) This release provides Windows NT 4.0 and Windows NT 3.51 support for
16bit ScaleToGray applications that were designed to run with Windows 3.1
and Windows 95.

Section 2 - System Configuration and Hardware Installation
***************************************************************************
Please read this section before you attempt to install and configure
ImageAccel 2. Refer to the PCI troubleshooting in Section 8
if your ImageAccel 2 system does not boot (or your display is black)
after following the steps in this section.

If your computer fails to boot ImageAccel 2 or run Windows NT properly,
there are three probable causes: incorrect configuration settings,
incompatible system BIOS, or early PCI BIOS or chipsets.

BIOS Compatibility
----------------------------------------------------------------
Please contact the dealer/distributor where you purchased your system
to get an upgrade from AWARD that supports Multi-function display
controller PCI devices. You may also contact Cornerstone Customer
Support at the numbers listed at the end of this file for the latest
AWARD BIOS information.

The Phoenix BIOS 4.04 or later revision supports PCI 2.0 specification
devices like ImageAccel 2. In addition, we have seen some 4.03
implementations that work with the latest ImageAccel 2 BIOS
although we suspect that others may not. If you have Phoenix 4.03
BIOS and want to upgrade, call the computer manufacturer directly.

American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS of various versions have successfully
configured ImageAccel 2, commonly AMI 1.00.xx-XXX BIOS's have been
verified to properly configure and boot ImageAccel 2.

COMPAQ EISA/PCI Machines (DeskPro XL family)
---------------------------------------------------------------
COMPAQ machines with a configuration utility earlier than version
2.28 incorrectly identify the ImageAccel 2 PCI card as an EISA
device, and they prompt users for an EISA configuration file
during the boot process.

Introducing ImageAccel 3
=======================
ImageAccel 3 is specifically designed for displaying scanned
images. It continues to deliver the best ScaleToGray,
significantly improving the readability of scanned images.
ImageAccel 3 also introduces new innovations designed to
improve and expand the use of scanned images, such as JBIG
decompression and display of bitonal and grayscale images,
user brightness/contrast adjustments, SmartImage optimization,
and an Internet viewer for displaying scanned documents.
ImageAccel 3 is more than just an imaging controller, however.
It also features True Color, and an easy to master user
interface and control system.

New Features
---------------
* This release adds support for the Color 50/95 Cornerstone
display. The 50/95 is a high performance 21" monitor with
0.25mm dot pitch. It is a 95Khz monitor capable of supporting
1600 x 1200 @ 75 Hz maximum and 1280 x 1024 @ 85 Hz. This
monitor is supported by the current IA3 controllers,
PCI230XC/32, and PCI250XC/33, PCI2504C/33P.

Hardware Support
----------------
The PCI170XC/30 controller board is not supported with this
release. Please use the Release 3.03 NT 4.0 display driver
for this support.

ImageAccel 3 supports a broad range of VESA standards to drive
multi-sync color displays. In addition, ImageAccel 3 has
optimized timing files for many Cornerstone color displays.
