Hard Drive Host Protected Area (HPA):
Gigabyte’s recent Motherboards provide a feature allowing information contained in the first partition of the Hard Drive to be copied to a hidden partition on the same drive where it is immune from attack.
Gigabyte’s name for their process is Xpress Backup. A
general description of Gigabyte’s Xpress Recovery can be viewed on their
Web site. More detailed information can be obtained in a motherboard
manual that supports the HPA ( Host Protected Area ) feature i.e. GA-7N400
