Since your using an assus motherboard, under the boot tab you can lower the time it takes for your computer to start loading the OS. (i personally set mine to 0).

Also what version of windows are you using. windows 7 or 8?

In my experience windows 8 has a much faster boot time on my SSD.

Really?! O_O Where? Maybe I'm on an outdated BIOS version. It's 0906. What's yours?

I'm running Windows 8 smile.gif It's pretty nice except some of my games don't work on them sadsmiley.gif

Okay I just realized that 0906 is extremely outdated.. And now I've got a new question :/ How should I update the BIOS? Through the ASUS Updater or using the USB Flash Bios function or perhaps thru the BIOS itself? (some guidance please tongue.gif)

Also, do I need to reset every custom settings I've made so far? The overclock settings and stuff? And how do I do that? Reset CMOS? Or is there a function within the BIOS iteslf to reset everything to default? guiltysmiley.gif

The boot time setting just increases the time it takes for your computer to get to the point where it starts booting. once it starts booting (when the little circle goes round and round) then thats in a hole other section. it essentialy reduces the time that the asus logo is on the screen before your computer starts booting.

What games cant you play? i havent had any compatibility issues.

i have the latst bios 1604 i beleive. but i use a maximus v formula. i dont know what your most recent bios version is but you can find it in the drivers section on the asus website.

As for updating your bios, ive upgraded through windows with the asus update program. (ive heard stories of other people having issues doing it this way though)

Open up your motherboard manual and there is a hole section on the different ways to udpate your bios. just pick w.e you think is easier or look up a guide on youtube. its pretty simple.

theres a restore default settings option in the bios. or restore default optomized settings. just do that. its usualy hotkeyed to a f1-f12 key. i forget wich specificly. worse comes to worse you can cmos. make sure all your bios setting are default before you update it. (atleast thats what i keep reading lol)

Ah I seee. Well I play lots of different kinds of games. But I only noticed that The Witcher Enhanced Edition doesn't work. At all :/

And alright I'll try updating later at night! smile.gif

Btw, I realized the damn shop gave me an old "Windows 7 Ready" version of the MoBo instead of the "Windows 8 Ready" one hence the outdated BIOS firmware. I don't mind the included software differences of the two but does anyone know if there are any hardware differences? tiredsmiley.gifohno-smiley02.gif

No idea. did not even know they still sold the windows 7 ready ones XD
