Thread: Ex58-ud5 rev.1 ..any quick boot up option?




  1. #1

    Default Ex58-ud5 rev.1 ..any quick boot up option?

    I've looked for it in the BIOS menu ... but no success.

    It takes a long time checking/detecting hardware when I switch on.

    Regards.

    I don't think there is a quick POST option. I remember reading it as a feature on some Gigabyte boards, but I'm sure it was a Core i5 board (I could be wrong). I believe after 3 successful boots it would cut out bits of the POST, saving about 30 sec on boot up time.

    **Edit**
    Do you have AHCI enabled? That can be a time sink at the POST process. Before I disabled it it would take 10 seconds + to detect all devices, which were 1 x 620GB WD, and 2 x 320GB WD drives. Oh plus a DVD re-writer.

    The new P55 chipset boards for i5 and the updated EX58A series boards (coming out later this year I believe) for the i7 will have that feature :(

    Let's hope a BIOS update gives us that option as well...
