Enable System BIOS Shadowing

Shadowing is the process of copying slower ROM code into underlying RAM memory to improve performance of the ROM routines. The most commonly-shadowed ROM is the system BIOS ROM. Enabling the BIOS ROM shadowing feature will result in a small performance improvement.

Note: It is unusual in my experience for problems to result from using this setting, so if you are having trouble enabling this you may want to troubleshoot your memory or motherboard.
