Now that my custom build is set up and ready to go, how do I shorten the initial Bios display when first starting up the system?
I've already setup the Bios and don't need to know what drives, etc. are loaded, can anyone help?
Bios is Awards Modular v6

If it's on, you can turn off the BIOS virus scan (I believe that's what it's called). Also, look when the computer is booting, I believe you can press a key, just not sure which, it'll say press key for quick boot.

There should be a feature in the bios options for quick boot, it usually turns off the memory test.
