I have a DZ77SL-50K MB with a i7 3770K with a 129G intel SSD (SSDSC2CW120A3) and a Sapphire 7970 GPU.
The machine boots fine but I want to add get into the BIOS menu and manipulate the settings but when I hit F2, the machine reboots.
If I do not his F2, the machine boots happily into Windows (7 64).
I flashed the BIOS to the latest version but still this problem persists.
I have tried to deactivate the fast boot that it seems to have but I simply CANNOT get into the BIOS.
BTW, my objective is to run 2 of those intel SSDs in RAID 0 as the MB natively supports this...if I could get into the BIOS.
Does anyone have any ideas?
I have had a good play with attempting to disable fast boot or any way of getting into the BIOS and NOTHING has worked.
down the PWR button from the off state, the machine beeps at me 4 times then I restart and the machine I get the monotonous /message/298532# 298532 "launching bios setup application" - then it reboots
I also tried changing the BIOS CFG jumper on the MB - I changed the jumper from pins 1 & 2 to 2 & 3. This did nothing.
The machine otherwise boots normally and operates fine.
I am still open to suggestion. This is a strange problem.
I also flicked out the Li button cell before AND changed the jumper but once again, to no effect.
