Default How do I remove the "Press F1" prompt at start up?

Hey guys,

I've got an MSI motherboard... 965 Neo F to be precise. It's just an annoying little problem I'm having - I'm prompted to press F1 at the end of the hardware detection screen every time I start up my computer... is there a way to disable that? I'm just wanting fastest load times possible, but this doesn't help.

Thanks guys,

Is it saying your boot sequence changed? Do you have any storage drive hooked up to a usb port or a floppy disk in? I would check the boot order in bios
mine is set up hd/disk/other i think would disable everything else unless you still use a floppy if you have it.

ETA I think you can disable self diagnostic in boot up I'm not sure if that is the correct wording just check your bios

You should have an option in your BIOS, something like "Fast Boot" or something like that.

Yeah it's just a option in your Bios you need to uncheck.
