Furthermore, it's up to your BIOS/ motherboard to support Bluetooth natively while in the BIOS environment.
Sadly, that is sort of what I expected. If it is not connected via USB, it doe s not 'come alive' until after boot.
I'll post a Q at MSI to see if my does support it natively but I doubt I'll get an intelligent response.


Again, thanks for your efforts!thumb.gif

Unfortunately, you probably won't. MSI has been horrible with responding to questions in the past (my experience, anyway).

Maybe it's worth looking into the BIOS update release notes for your mobo. You could also but a Bluetooth dongle for use with BIOS only and use internal for Windows, buy by that point you're just better off getting a 2.4GHz mouse/ keyboard combo. rolleyes.gif
