Default Probably a strange question regarding POST info..

When I turn on my PC I get all kinds of POST info, even the "detecting primary HDD" and "detecting primary IDE". Is it possible to disable this stuff for a faster boot, or is it necessary to be viewed?

Have always wondered if it was possible to just not show the info, and still tap the F2 key to enter BIOS if I need to reenable it or just access the BIOS.
