Knowing BIOS
The new ASUS UEFI BIOS is a Unified Extensible Interface that
complies with UEFI architecture, offering a user-friendly interface

smoothness as your operating system.
NOTE: The term “BIOS” in this user manual refers to “UEFI BIOS” unless
otherwise specified.
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware
settings such as storage device configuration, advanced power
management, and boot device configuration that are needed for
system startup in the motherboard CMOS. In normal circumstances,
the default BIOS settings apply to most conditions to ensure optimal
performance. DO NOT change the default BIOS settings except in
the following circumstances:
•
An error message appears on the screen during the system
bootup and requests you to run the BIOS Setup.
•
You have installed a new system component that requires
further BIOS settings or update.
WARNING! Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability
or boot failure. We strongly recommend that you change the BIOS
settings only with the help of a trained service personnel.
Entering BIOS
•
To enter BIOS Setup at startup, press <Delete> or <F2> during
the Power-On Self Test (POST). If you do not press <Delete>,
POST continues with its routines.
