So in my bios settings I enabled this thing called ultra fast boot. It's great, it boots so quickly the motherboard splash screen doesn't even flash! Boots in 7 seconds, problem is, it boots TOO fast, I need to access bios, and the USB devices are disabled by ultra fast boot, thus causing a problem. I don't want to go to the trouble of resetting my CMOS, that just seems a bit too much to access bios. If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated.

most newer mb like msi have small windows programs that when run on the next reboot puts the mb into the bios. the other software now is software suit to let users to change bios settings in windows.

Well resetting it will be a little hassle but it isnt that bad to redo a few settings. There also might be a feature which allows you to push the reset button and instead of resetting, it brings you to the bios. Aside from that I think you might have to reset the bios.

Just press F6 while you start, a window asking you to reset cmos will pop up !!
just select your desired option, and in next boot, you can enter bios as usual.

I have a similair problem with my new PC - built it today - April 24th it's i5 4670 k and gigabyte board . It boots in less then 2 seconds with fast boot but like most fast boot stuff it takes longer to load stuff and drivers and other things once in windows and takes longer to shutdown and that's bad cause I have a ssd

So to fix it
1. Open up the computer
2. Un conect the data or power cord to the hard disks
3. Boot press delete to enter bios settings
4. Turn quick boot or fast boot off
5 . Connect every thing again and start up the PC

I hope that helps - no reason to reset the bios.
