Boot menu on ASUS M4A78T-E?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
is there a key you can press on startup for this board to get to a boot menu?
or do i have to go into the bios to change my boot order if i want to boot to a different hard drive everytime?

motherboard - http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...68&modelmenu=1

i read through the manual like, 2 times, and it doesn't say anything about that so i don't know...

you have to hit the key that goes to your Bios and then go to Boot priorities and then choose boot one boot 2 and then boot 3. To change it back go back into bio and repeat steps.

I have a setup that has XP on a SATA drive and windows 7 beta on a IDE drive, and I have to go into the bios and change which harddrive is booted first to change the boot order. Ive got a M4A79T Deluxe
