"Promise of Value" (POV) card, a 256-bit encrypted security chip daughtercard attached to the motherboard, which enables RFID antenna, C2 tamper switch, and Alert On LAN 2 support with a compatible network adapter. If an attempt is made to remove the POV card from the board and install it into another system, the cryptographic key material will be erased, rendering it unusable. This security feature is by design and prevents the cryptographic key migration from one system to another. Therefore, moving this security chip from one board to another is not a supported option. If an attempt is made to move the POV card from one system to another, it may hang on boot and display an error message referring to an invalid machine type and serial number.
