Can't access BIOS because my Systems boots too quickly

Hi,

I recently put together a pc with the help of a friend. I have Windows 7 and a MSI Z170A mother board. I made the mistake of activating ultra fast boot in BIOS so now when I restart and try to access the Bios by hitting the DEL key the system boots before my USB keyboard turns on.

I've tried everything from lengthening my boot time to trying to access bios from the command prompt. I've scoured the internet for answers but haven't had anyluck.

Any help would be appreciated.

    if you boot in to desktop see if you can disable fast boot if you installed it should have a way to turn it on or off ??

  3. The Mobo's manual will have the precise procedure to reverse this QUICK BOOT.
  4. How about just resetting the BIOS by removing the battery or with the jumper? From your description, it seems 'Ultra Fast Boot' is not enabled by default. Resetting the BIOS will restore it to normal boot mode.
