Asus p5k-e motherboard Tags: Chipsets Asus Motherboards Last response: January 9, 2011 5:33 AM in Motherboards Share crunch1_01 December 29, 2010 6:32:58 PM I am running the orignal bios setting from 2007. My Question is how do I change it so it does not read an external drive on startup ? It seees the drive and checks the whole drive before it will finish the boot system.
