The CE-mark approves the conformity by the EU-guidelines:
- EMV-guideline 89/336/EWG electromagnetic tolerance
- LVD-guideline 73/23/EWG use of electric devices
within certain voltage-limits
 Power on after power fail:
The BIOS setup provides a "Power-on-after-power-fail" function that can be found under "Power Management Configuration". As the name indicates, this function determines the PC's behaviour after power failure: (1) unconditional power on, (2) restore former status or (3) keep system turned off. As a matter of the nature of this function, it may fail after short power failures. This is why the XH270 also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper 4 (on the mainboard near the "Shuttle" printing), the system will start unconditionally once power is supplied.
 How to convert DisplayPort into HDMI/DVI
The DisplayPort output can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:
DELOCK 82590: 1 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
DELOCK 82435: 5 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)
The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).
However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.
 Installation of Windows 7
Intel® 100 chipset series has been removed support for the Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) which is the driver software for the USB 2.0 ports. The new chipset only supports the updated Extensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI for USB 3.0) which is not supported over the original Windows 7 installation disk. This means, that peripheral devices connected by USB (like keyboard, mouse and external optical drive) do not work during Windows 7 installation. Therefore please add the required USB 3.0 drivers to the Windows 7 installation files manually. This procedure is explained in the Shuttle FAQ section at faq.shuttle.com.
 Use of Kaby Lake processor
If a Kaby Lake processor is used, this XPC will only support Windows 10 and Linux operating systems. Windows 7 and 8.1 will no longer be supported.
 Teaming Mode
The teaming function allows you to group both available network adapters to function as one single adapter. The benefit of this approach is that it enables load balancing and failover.

 High ambient temperature
For high ambient temperatures over 40°C, we strongly recommend to use SSDs instead of hard disk drives.
 Optional Wireless LAN module:
This Shuttle XPC slim Barebone supports the optional Shuttle XPC Accessory WLN-M which consists of an M.2-2230 card with IEEE 802.11ac and BT4.0 functionality and two external antennas with appropriate antenna cables.
 Power connector for SATA drives
The supplied power cables for SATA drives provide a voltage of 5 V. In very rare cases a 2.5" hard disk also requires a 12 V line, which is not supported (e.g. Seagate Constellation® series).
