Hey, Ive realised I can’t test the mobo with a i5-6600k as the z370 isn’t backward compatible. Any suggestions on how I can determine if it’s cpu or mobo?
Wowzers! It worked! I changed the keyboard and hey presto into Bios. Thanks guys!*
So now I’m in bios and wondering what to do. Searching menus i notice fast boot it selected and that storage device boot is legacy only. Changed these two settings and lo and behold the windows installation media kicks in on next startup. Why the flip the defaults are set to fast boot and legacy only, I have no idea. Has no one else had this issue.? I only hope this is the end of my woes and I can’t atart to enjoy the maximus hero x goodness!
Thanks again chaps, if only i’d been able to post last night as I was crying into my pillow. (New member cool down prevented....)*
So, thanks again for this tip. but.... is there no way to get the keyboard working in start-up? I can't be plugging in another keyboard everytime I want to enter the bios! also it doesn't seem to wake from hibernation with this keyboard. suggestions? Also, a bit off topic, but is there a way to re-boot to UEFI from the desktop? My asrock board that I had before had a utility software suite that included a shortcut to reboot to UEFI. was very useful.
