    Now that you got your ssd attached to sata port "0".

    [QUOTE][I had to find the "0" SATA socket and manually connect my SSD drive to it. All is well now that I did this, but I would still like to get into my Bios (like I /QUOTE]

    Now check if your mouse and keyboard are attached to a usb port 2.0 (Not 3.0). Will that allow you to get into the bios in the normal fashion?

    I like others recommend when you get into the bios don't use fast, quick, supper quick boot or what it is called
    Does your bios have or request a password?

    Yes! Using a wired USB 2.0 keyboard and wired mouse works fine. Thanks!!! So this is how it was working before, and I can keep the Bios set at "Ultra Fast" mode! Also, no passwords.

    Here's the reply from Tom's Hardware's main motherboard reviewer Tom Soderstrom, via email this morning: "Hammering the delete key at startup usually still works. Most boards have a 1-3 second delay for this built in, but you often don’t see it because modern monitors take up to 3 seconds to go active. Even without the delay, if you’re tapping fast enough you can usually get lucky within the 30 milliseconds or so it takes to hand off to the OS "
    Hope that works for you. It's new and possibly welcome information to me.
    Best wishes,

    Yes, and again, my Gigabyte motherboard is "smart" enough to allow you several additional seconds along with a window that allows the user to enter the bios if you use the reset button built into the case. I had a cheap ASUS motherboard installed and it worked fine but was much slower booting up, and opening up programs within Windows 10.
