Configuring the displays

1. Attach a keyboard and mouse to the magic info display.
2. Power up the display and go to the BIOS by pressing F2.

4. Save Changes and Exit the BIOS by pressing F10 and yes to save changes.
5. Boot into windows embedded.
6. You should see a Magic info setup wizard, Magic info asks if you are using it via FTP or WAN LAN setup, select WAN LAN and next to all other wizard screens and finally, reboot.
7. Once back into Windows Embedded you should now notice a magic info globe is spinning on a black background.
8. Press Alt-F4 or Alt F12 to close this window and return to the desktop.
9. You should now see within the system tray there is a magic info globe icon.
10. Right click on the icon and select EWF and then disable EWF and restart
11. Once rebooted, install Sophos for standalone and individual machines (Available on the LGFL support site) Once Sophos is working, disable the windows firewall and reboot.
