I have seen/heard a lot of the talk about that after installing windows 8, you cannot install Linux.
I thought that would only be on new pcs that come with win8 preinstalled?
Anyway I have been using windows 8 basically since a few days after the dp was released and am a big fan of the Metro compared to the traditional desktop, (even on 27" screen on my iMac)
After installing the CP, I have noticed that I can no longer press F2 for bios or F12 for boot options.
It is an Acer aspire one 751h netbook
I am not worried about it but I just am curious if anyone else has had this with their computers?
As with my sisters Intel/Stone classmate touchscreen netbook, I can still access the bios etc.
So it's confusing. :/
Bios access and any boot options, come very early in the boot up process way before any operating system regardless of flavour even starts to load
yea so why can't I access it unless I do a restart? Or is it that windows 8 tricks my netbook into thinking it is in a hibernation state?
If that is the case, then why didn't the same thing happen with my sisters netbook or with the DP?
Check in the power options settings , that when you select to shutdown from the menu that the pc is set to enter standby or hybernation mode
No it isn't. I have noticed now that you have to do a restart to see the options.
Any way I am not that worried, just thought if anyone else had this happen, which it seems lots have after a little more looking around.
