BIOS Defaults for New Installations

When installing a new operating system on a disk drive, you should verify that the following BIOS settings are properly configured before you perform the operating system installation:

Verification of BIOS Factory Defaults

In the BIOS Setup Utility, you can set optimal defaults, as well as view and edit BIOS settings as needed. Any changes you make in the BIOS Setup Utility (by pressing F2) are permanent until the next time you change them.

In addition to using the F2 key to view or edit the system’s BIOS settings, you can use F8 during the BIOS start-up to specify a temporary boot device. If you use F8 to set a temporary boot device, this change is only in effect for the current system boot. The permanent boot device specified through F2 will be in effect after booting from the temporary boot device.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the following requirements are met prior to accessing the BIOS Setup Utility.
