Is there a way to change the boot monitor in the bios?

I'm running an Asus 660ti. I believe the EFI firmware successfully installed. I don't see an option in the bios for changing which monitor the computer boots to prior to the OS. If it's not in the bios is there a way to change which port the video card uses for the primary display?

Its a matter of how your GPU prioritizes the monitor ports - not a matter of the mainboard. For some GPUs it may work to do a cold boot with only your main screen connected, then you can connect the second one and settings are somehow saved. However some GPUs keep their priority order anyway...

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm guessing if that doesn't work I'd need to command line into the gpu, and switch a variable?

Disabling compatibility support module in the boot settings fixed the issue. Luckily everything supports UEFI. Even had the added benefit of giving me full screen boot, and bios.
