Gigabyte MA790X-UD4 Dual Boot Question Tags: Gigabyte Boot Hard Drives Motherboards Last response: August 25, 2011 9:54 AM in Motherboards Share dakrisht December 12, 2009 8:27:30 AM Hey everyone, Running a multiple HDD system on a Gigabyte MA790X-UD4 (BIOS version F6). Right now when I press F12 ("Boot Menu") I'm only able to select Hard Disk, CDROM, Floppy, etc... What do I need to do or HOW do I select a particular HDD to boot without going into the BIOS and manually selecting boot priority? I'm unable to configure a bootloader function in Windows XP/7 so I'd like to select the drive to boot during POST. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

It would take someone like billbat to explain how to do it afterwards as I don't remember. m 0 l Related resources Asus M4A78 PRO or Gigabyte MA790X-UD4 - Forum Gigabyte Dual Boot Question - Forum Dual Boot Question - Forum Dual Boot Question - Forum Dual boot (XP and 7) question... - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer dakrisht December 12, 2009 9:32:39 PM Thanks but I'm looking for a simple way to boot into a Hard Disk of my choice from POST - like F12... I want to be able to select whatever volume I have installed... It doesn't list the volumes at the moment, only 'Hard Disk' I don't need the Windows 7 bootloader option or the BootIt software, no reason to complicated things here... Just a simple F12 and then select which HDD to boot first... I'm surprised Gigabyte doesn't have this feature or maybe I just haven't been able to find it yet... m 0 l redgarl December 12, 2009 11:50:37 PM You should find the option in your BIOS if you want to select a particular order for your partitions. It's definitely there... if it's not, I am laughing at Gigabyte. m 0 l dakrisht December 13, 2009 12:22:04 AM Of course the BIOS gives you the ability to change up the order for each DISK (not partitions, that's not the right word )... What we're trying to do here is push F12 after POST and be able to choose a particular HARD DISK. So in addition to the CDROM, LAN, Floppy, you can choose HARD DRIVE 1, DRIVE 2, etc... Not sure why this is such a hard question for everyone to understand! m 0 l dakrisht December 13, 2009 12:30:41 AM I figured it out - thank you. m 0 l paulmykel August 25, 2011 9:54:18 AM dakrisht said:I figured it out - thank you. sir would you mind teaching me how to do it? am having same issues m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
