HI,

Do you know what is the key to press at startup to be able to choose the boot device without going through the bios?

Thanks in advance,

Adamo.

F9, I believe...
;)

F8 will give you a boot mode menu, like for SafeMode...
It all depends on the board...

Here are a some boot options during POST for a few motherboard manufacturers that I know about:

ECS K7S5A = "F8"
Epox (called EZ Boot) = "esc"
DFI = "Print Screen"

I was intending to make a post in one of the forums here about this subject. I would be curious to see a list of specific motherboards and controller cards, especially SATA cards, which offer this option.
