Default Re: Bios

You access the bios by usually pressing Del at bootup.

You shouldn't have to do much. I'd just check settings making sure the hard drive has been found and is ready to boot and things.

If you have Windows XP, you might even have trouble booting up into Windows after updating the hardware. It has this protection on it, so I hope it works.
