    Hi all. :)

    In the not so old days most PC's would have a a setting in the bios where you could choose to either show the manufacturers logo or the BIOS POST screen on startup.

    I have an Alienware Aurora R5. I'm really not that familiar with a UEFI bios and was wondering if it's possible to have a POST screen show on startup? And if so would I have to use the legacy bios option to do it.

    Any input appreciated.

    Cheers. :)

    Some have a "fast boot" setting in the Bios , you could turn that off.

    Hi @managed

    Thank you again for posting. (y)

    Yeah, the legacy bios is an option but I need to do some more research before trying it. And make a full backup to my NAS... just in case. And also think... do I really want to use a legacy bios just so I can see a POST screen?? :)

    Could be a laugh though and trip down memory lane. :D

    Yeah you're corrent, disabling fast boot was what I used to do with a lot of systems. Unfortunately I didn't see that option in the bios. Maybe it's there in the legacy bios. Just.. do I really want it that much?? ;)
