BIOS Settings for New Build Tags: New Build BIOS New Build Systems Last response: January 14, 2008 10:54 AM in Systems Share vince0013 January 13, 2008 12:43:24 PM I will be building my first PC soon as I've ordered the parts for the system in my profile. I've never messed with BIOS before so I need some help in making sure I have the correct settings. If most of the default settings are fine then I'll leave it alone. I know that, at a minimum, I need to set date and time and adjust the boot priority so that I can load Vista. Thanks for your help.
