I for some reason can not access the bios on my pc I just built. I want to install Windows 8 release preview from a thumb drive on it. But as I can not access the bios I can not change the boot order.
Here is my hopeful solution. I hope to pop in my new Hard drive in my other pc,install Win8 on it and pop in my new machine. Would this work? Would I run into any problems?
If somebody could let me know, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
"To access the BIOS Setup Program, press <Delete> key during POST when the power is turned on. To see more advanced BIOS setup menu options you can press <Ctrl> + <F1> in the main menu of the BIOS Setup program."
Just keep pressing delete during POST every second until it shows up.
Yes, it may technically work too, but I would not recommend that idea. You may either need to keep pressing either "ESC, F12, or F8" during boot to get the boot menu, it can vary on motherboards.
