Hello All:
Built my first machine with help here. Running great with a slight overclock. Am very happy. Need help to boot without going through F1. I have Vista 32 and XFX 680i LT SLI mobo. When I power up, it stops with the option of DEL to enter BIOS, or F1 to enter OS. I can't figure out how to make it boot straight through without hitting F1 first. Tried changing boot priority CD vs HDD with no luck. Any help here much appreciated.TIA

Usually this is the result of "Halt on error" - and can be caused by a bad keyboard, mouse, missing floppy drive, changes in memory, etc. So the first thing is to find out why it's stopping. Usually this is on a line or two, above or below the "Press F1 to continue" line.

Ah!
It says: floppy disc failure (40). But, I didn't install a floppy! What's next?

Got it! Went in and found Drive A in BIOS. Clicked on it and selected "NONE." That did the trick. Thanks very much.
