EPoX 9npa+SLI requires F1 to complete boot? Tags: Epox BIOS Motherboards Last response: January 27, 2007 7:58 PM in Motherboards Share fedude November 21, 2006 12:15:04 AM Whenever my mobo boots, it always stops after it recognizes all the hardware and makes me hit F1 to continue or Del to enter BIOS. I cannot start up my PC w/o hitting F1. I thought I had brought this on myself by tampering with the BIOS but for the life of me I can't figure out how I caused this. I've looked through all the settings and I can't find anything. I did switch CPU's and had to go into the BIOS to have it recognize this without a warning. I'm stumped. Does anyone know why the boot is stopping and what I can do to correct this? More about : epox 9npa sli requires complete boot fedude November 21, 2006 2:18:25 AM Thanks for the tips. I went into the BIOS and restored all the factory settings. (lost my OC), but at least the F1 is gone. Thanks for all the help. andlcs December 14, 2006 1:51:35 PM This happens when you: Didn't install a floppy drive Clear CMOS or because of the "Halt On" errors such as no keyboard detected.

Go into "Advanced BIOS Features" and disable it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
