    When were benchmarking, and wanting to adjust the overclocks, it's just "easier".
    You don't need to spam the delete key the whole time.
    Also if you have different BIOS profiles set you want to change between.
    It does sound ideal How does the code work?

    You mean steves?

    You just copy it into notepad save it as NAME.bat, create a shortcut for it, give it admin privileges, give it a custom icon if you wish, and them just click and give permission, and it will boot your pc to BIOS,

    OR:

    You can download this shortcut pack I made, unblock it, unzip it, place it in Documents, and copy the shortcut to your desktop:)
    It comes with it's own custom icon.

    @Cliff

    Yeah I meant how does it work? Obviously it bypasses some startup sequences...

    @Cliff

    Is it a modification of the shutdown.exe in C:\WINDOWS\system32?

    Thanks Steve.
    I created a shortcut for it, and set it to run as admin.

    I have an additional reset button, but it just does the normal reboot, and not straight into BIOS, and I need to spam del or F12.
    With your bat file, I won't need to now:)
    Shawn made a reg file to add that same command to your context menu, all I did was edited it to add the /t 0 than ran the file.

    It uses shutdown.exe.
    Shutdown.exe is the application to control all shutdowns and reboots.
    Your normal options use it.
    Then bat file just sets the choices for the next shutdown. But it uses the executable.

    [QUOTE=Cliff S;1314081]Kol12 I made a copy of ma 5GHz BIOS setting once, because after updating BIOS, it gets to be a pain resetting everything over again.

    How did you make that text copy of your bios? When the next bios update comes, I won't remember all my changes I'm sure.

    From the Tools menu in your bios, and have a blank usb stick in, then save your current settings to that usb drive.
