So is there a way around this besides flashing my BIOS? Motherboard is a P8H77-V-LE

Doesn't work from cold boot.



This is fixed. Thanks everyone.

Do you have quick boot or something like that enabled?

Press Delete during POST, or CTRL+ALT+DEL + reset button on case after POST.

Shutdown the machine. Wait few seconds, start the machine, hold down the "Del" as soon as you hit the power button and see how that goes.

Not sure if any of this helps but http://support.asus....gROqFLv&no=1722

You must have uefi bios. those boot very quickly. You have to press the key for your bios starting right when you press the power button.

Depending on your settings, fast boot doesn't always load ps2/usb drivers, so you may not be able to get into the BIOS. On some motherboards fast boot will be disabled for one boot after losing power. You can try a shutdown and then either unplug or turn off your power supply for a few seconds. When you plug it back in and hit the power button, start hitting DEL (or whatever you have to hit to get into your BIOS - sometimes F10, etc.) Good luck. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to reset CMOS to turn fast boot off.

edit:never mind. I see you got it .
