Question about Intel D850MV Motherboard

Enter BIOS on boot

I have D850MV motherboard with Intel P4 and Have tried Delete, F1, F2, & F12 on booting to enter BIOS, all without sucess. How do I get into BIOS to change booting to CD or DVD drive?
I am trying to stay legal. The version of Windows XP Pro presently on this computer is on a newer computer. I want to load a older version of Windows XP Pro, which I own, on this computer. It will not load and tells me that the version on this computer is a newer version.

    Thanks for confirming that f2 was the correct key. I subquently found that it wasn't working because of the keyboard (Microsoft office keyboard). I really like this Keyboard and when I loaded Vista and found that it wouldn't recognise it, I got rid of Vista. I feel that Microsoft selling a Keyboard then coming out with an operating system that doesn't recognise it is dirty. Then not supporting the keyboard is rotten practice.

    Thank you again for your response.

Hi,

According to the intel manual the key is F2

"The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer. The
BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST)
memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins."

That is from the manual for the board, instead of reinstalling Windows you may as well just change the product key on one of the installations to your other copy.

How do you get into the bios on a 785gt-e63 msi motherboard? read the book it said at start up press f1 did not work.


As soon as you turn on the computer start tapping (not fast, but steady) the F1 key, you could try F2, DEL, and other various keys that work on other boards.

Usually the screen will show you what to press in the corner or somewhere on the screen.

F12 for boot / F2 for BIOS / etc
Or it might say Press F1 or F2 or something to enter Set-up.

You have to catch it before the computer starts to boot into your operating system.

At this point you can push the power button for half a second and the computer should turn off instantly as you have not started booting up the computer.
Then you can try another key to enter the BIOS.

After locating the manual and skimming through it, I see that it states you need to press the DEL key to enter setup (BIOS).

Hopefully that helps.

Trying to boot fm CD/RW drive. Can't get at CMOS/BIOS to change boot process. Motherboard is Intel D875PBZLK -875p. F12 at bootup doesn't bring it up, nor does, F2, escape, delete. Using Windows XP SP3.


The command key is F2 - start pressing it immediately after you pressed the case start button and don't release it until the bios is loaded. If it doesn't work then probably your keyboard is iffy, try with another one.

Want to change priorities of boot in BIOS


This link is for the owners manual on that board,
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d850mv/sb/mdmvenglish.pdf

On page 47 it states F2 is used to get into the bios, press repeatedly while booting so you don't miss the window, and of course check you keyboard, it should flash the caps,num, and scroll lock lights on boot.

Hope this helps
